We took a break for a few weeks for obvious (sad Caps) and not-so-obvious (Rachel graduated!) reasons, but we’re back with fresh Shinny, and it could not be more appropriate.

If you recall last time, Shinny’s boyfriend violated The Code. Now, much like the broader Caps fandom, Shinny has to deal with the aftermath. On the bright side, the Shoulder Angels are back!
