Sci-fi

#MSWL: I would love a scifi YA where--and just hear me out here--someone takes a werewolf and puts it ON the moon, and also puts a vampire on the sun, and somehow this makes sense.

Breakfast Club, but they are at wizard school.

Bring It On, but they are at wizard school.

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, but he’s at wizard school.

It’s just that easy to make a new genre of film, fellas.

YES—give me “Bring It On” at wizard (or space) school! #mswl

I want #SFF stories about socioeconomic disparities at academic institutions.

Public school zoning on Mars? Affirmative action at fantasy college? Exploitation of student athletes at interstellar universities? PLEASE.

This song came out the year before I was born, and I'm disappointed none of it has come true yet. But at least I can #mswl it? Send me some of that optimistic, aspirational sci-fi and fantasy please. Don't let Susan down! youtu.be/46FOlF5bZPQ

Most of all, MOST OF ALL, if you're worried your character is not the usual star of a sci-fi fantasy because of elements of diversity (color, religion, LGBTQ+, neurodiversity, disability) QUERY ME PLZ plz plz plz plz! #MSWL

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · Apr 9

And if you're feeling sorta "This character isn't typically the focus in sci-fi/fantasy (the King's chef; the ship Captain's errand boy), so it might not grab any attention..." QUERY ME PLZ #MSWL

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · Apr 9

And if you're like "I'm not 100% sure this sci-fi/fantasy works for the genre because it's more about the sibling/BFF relationship as they navigate the speculative world..." QUERY ME PLZ #MSWL

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · Apr 9

And if you're like "I've heard sex sells but really that didn't fit with my sci fi so I left it out, and the relationships are totally different than usual pairings in sci-fi or fantasy, so I'm not sure..." QUERY ME PLZ #MSWL

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · Apr 9

And if you're like "My sci fi is also maybe a little fantasy, bcuz it has weird fantasy creatures and relationships but is dependent on a structure of advanced science, so I dunno..." QUERY ME PLZ #MSWL

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · Apr 9

So if you're like "Well, I don't really have time travel in my book, but I make my characters question whether time exists at all as their relationships explode in fiery cataclysmic ways..." QUERY ME PLZ #MSWL

Naomi Davis @NaomisLitPix · Apr 9

I also want to see unique, cinematic sci-fi that's heavy on the fi, light on the sci. And I like to see time, or other elements of life we accept as "reality" played with, too. #MSWL

hey @guardian, i fixed your headline for you pic.twitter.com/p0Fu06bZgC

I can’t stop thinking about this.

Someone write me a reverse, PoC Howard Carter #SFF novel where cultural artifacts are repatriated to their rightful inheritors. Give me the fantasy or future tech inverse heist novel. #MSWL twitter.com/_iwakeli_i/sta…

I'd love to see some non-Western space opera or military science fiction. NINEFOX GAMBIT is a great example. #mswl

#MSWL I like gritty, I like dark, and I like finding the kernel of light in complicated characters. Especially in Fantasy & Sci Fi. However, not a fan of rape, drug/physical/sexual abuse, or mystery/thriller plots.

#MSWL : women, diversity, and #ownvoices in sci fi.
Also desperately in need of a fantasy that takes me to an unexpected, far off land. Preferably with LGBTQ+ elements.
