Lee Stokes @LeeOfTheStokesI feel like I've come across a lot of people lately who think "SFF for adults" is supposed to mean "sophisticated allegorical commentary on the human condition." Like, I just want to see idiots past puberty trying and failing to adult, with swords.
Hard #MSWL THIS IS WHAT I WANT OUT OF MY SFF
so I’m not nor have I ever been a dancer but like
I adored the body horror in BLACK SWAN or SUSPIRIA
there’s just something about the beauty of dancing woven with horror that gets to me
and I would be THRILLED to see dance horror in my box?????
Cortney Radocaj 🏳️🌈💖💜💙 @CortneyRadocajAs I typed this thread I realize this sounds slightly masochistic bc who the FUCK wants to live in extremely painful emotion all the time right
It’s also a way to process our own hurts. To have them, even briefly, outside of ourselves. To have them be tangible.
Idk how to wrap this up this is literally just me rambling and plastering my thoughts on the internet but
IDK JUST SEND ME EMOTIONAL ASS HORROR OKAY
IT’S AN AMAZING AND OFTEN UNDERUTILIZED GENRE AND I JUST WANT ALL OF IT
(#MSWL I guess??)
Briston Brooks @briston_brooks.@CortneyRadocaj: wanna watch a movie i need a pick me up this week sucked
us: choose train to busan
us, after: incoherent sobbig
can attest, nothing but a puddle of tears now
BUT FOR REALSIES
THIS is the kind of horror I want to see in my box. THIS level of character development and emotion
(also can we talk about MASTERFUL use of setting here bc JESUS CHRIST)
GIMME FEELS DAMMIT
I’m always wanting this but like
Reading sawkill girls recently has made my want for f/f a goddamn obsession
SEND ME ALL YOUR SAPPHIC SHIT
Especially ones with girls made of razor-edges shards and anger and spite—I NEED IT
so i uh
finally read sawkill girls
for the love of all that is holy
IF YOUR MS COMPS TO THIS BOOK
GIVE IT TO ME
THE QUEER LOVE
JUST GET IT INTO MY HANDS OKAY
I AM BEGGING YOU
#amwriting #amquerying #writers #mswl
And remember—if your book doesn’t exactly fit any of these, but you feel your ms would make a good fit based on other tweets/bios/what have you, send it to me!!
I can’t wait to see all the pretties in 2020!! :D
Dark dark dark DARK. GIMME DARK
And just to be clear—this doesn’t mean “make it as bloody/gross/crude/disgusting as possible (i.e. violence for no reason, sexual assault, etc.). I’m talking themes. Emotions. Difficult—impossible—decisions. Angry, conflicted protagonists.
YA fantasy! I’m all about witchy blood magic—darker is better (does anyone see a trend here yet). Queer! Enemies to lovers! Magic with consequences! Tangled friend/family relationships! Unique plot lines with lots of tension/conflict! AND DON’T FORGET THE KISSING I NEED KISSING
Haven’t found my novel written in verse yet—particularly wanting this for YA!! Contemporary preferred—again melancholy, mental health/queer centered, darker is better. DYING FOR LYRICAL VOICES HERE.
