OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - I want SFF with adult women in all stages of life. Or men who refuse to compromise themselves for appearances sake. Give me pregnant heroines, menopausal heroines, women late in life GETTING SHIT DONE like they do!
OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult SFF with rich romantic layering. Give me complexity and stakes laced between both the romance and the fantasy conflict. Show me how magic and love work in tandem. Show me passion across galaxies. Light me on fire.
OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult Sci Fi that shows other worlds, new forms of life, dark secrets, and technology that inspires both awe and fear. F up my sense of my place in the universe. I LOOOVE tortured antiheroes with a soft spot. No hard military sci fi.
OPEN TO ADULT QS. #MSWL - Adult SFF - The queerer the better! Sci fi or Fantasy with queerness embedded in culture; SFF that fearlessly reps gender/sexuality spectrum. (I am queer myself and want to see ways cultures could deal with queerness differently from our reality)
🦌Elle🎄Grittymas Is Coming🎄Gato🦌 @ellle_emI want more small stories in epic settings
What I mean: fantasy worlds, galaxy-spanning space confederacies, magical kingdoms, living cities, etc. etc. etc. as settings but a focus on small stories within those settings
Eternal #MSWL! I love a different genre’s story in an SFF setting—especially if the author has cleverly teased out some smart interactions between the two.
I just listened to a story about The Svalbard Global Seed Vault in the Arctic Circle, and now I desperately want to read a SFF that features an intergalactic version of this amazing place. Maybe it’s a heist book?! #mswl
Another trope I adore from indie rom-coms, weird sci-fi, and obscure non-US TV dramas is the uptight, emotionally/physically repressed person who falls for and pines over the free spirit, without judging, while FS teases mercilessly. Ex: Ins. Jack Robinson & Phryne Fisher. #MSWL
In #sciencefiction wouldn't mind a space survival or new planet survival story. Think Adrift by Rob Boffard or Semiosis. Love stories about crashing or landing on unknown planets and the early days of colonization or the journey. #MSWL

now that i’m officially done with FMA:B i just want to say that at the tippy-top of my #mswl are lawful neutral female characters like general olivier armstrong and postcolonial SFF that breaks my heart and puts it back together again
Fantasy & Sci-Fi: I gravitate towards fantasy that's very much grounded in the real world, and SF that's light on the sci, heavy on the fi. Give me characters I can't let go of with rich world building and a runaway plot. #mswl
