Dean Black

Dean is a News Writer for Startefacts. Officially, anyway, since it's hard to keep him off other types of articles when he becomes excited. Adept to all things big and small-screen, Dean lives in his carefully set-up news feed to stay on top of any updates while simultaneously rewatching his favorite shows for the hundredth time.

An avid Harry Potter and Game of Thrones fan, he is always lurking on various fan forums in search of interesting theories or obnoxiously hot takes. Any time of the day, Dean is eager to explain why Grindelwald is superior to Voldemort in every way and how D&D's questionable decisions could fit into GRRM's lore (with effort).

Realistically, something doesn't need to be magical to hook him: as long as it's a movie, a TV show, or a video game, consider him interested.

Better yet, if he can blend a few topics into one and then compile a must-watch film list for the true connoisseurs of some half-forgotten genre like cyberpunk, neo-noir, western, or vampire novels.

When Dean can't be found among his fellow fantasy enjoyers, it typically means that he locked the door and indulges himself in one of his guilty pleasure TV shows — Blue Bloods, Chicago Fire, Friends, HIMYM, and others. Or, perhaps, he's rapidly spamming the refresh button on Box Office Mojo, ready to jump straight to writing.
