Susan, A Graham
I've just realized the protagonists I'm most drawn to and the protagonists I've been asking for, especially in the MG space are just Amy March. Bratty, determined babies who don't want to read and are wildly jealous & resentful and full of joy. Send me your MG Amy Marches #mswl
Susan, A Graham @GrahamophonesSometimes I think as the age category gets older, the angst becomes a linchpin of sorts. The what do they want becomes what are they mad about? What are they running from? & then it's harder to find works with joy in that voice. I COULD BE READING THE WRONG BOOKS, please rec? 💛
Anyway, #mswl I guess.... joyful protags, or a joyful narrative voice. I love snark and sadness and anger, but I want this, too.
kaity ✨ @percahliaim haunted by the fact that twilight would be infinitely more interesting if you remove the romance from the plot and just make it about a lonely teenage girl on the cusp of becoming an adult just straight up becoming a member of a family of vampires because they all like her
Dahlia Adler @MissDahlELamaPublishers, please consider buying more queer Harry Potter-ish books because wow do I get a lot of requests for them on the LGBTQReads Tumblr.
Also, you really need Sapphic YA vampires. Pretty sure @whimsicallyours will write them for you if you ask nicely.
🌼Elle🐱Gato🌼(they/them) @ellle_emI just want fantasy and scifi written for adults, about adults, that isn't a grimdark tangle of hopelessness and violence. I just want the aesthetics of the best YA fantasies transformed into stories for adults.

Demon: WHAT THE HELL
Me: I know
Demon: EVERYTHING HURTS, WHY?? AND WHATS WRONG WITH THIS SHOULDER???
Me: idk man, can I offer you a mint?
Actual #mswl disability rep that reflects my *And So many others'* reality and is fantasy jokes regarding trauma.
Susan, A Graham @Grahamophones#mswl the hannah montana movie but with murder and queer kid protags
so I guess like... queer caitlin's way... is that too dated a reference?
Actually thinking back on Caitlin's Way, I LIVED for Caitlin and Griffin's cousin/sibling relationship, that was the good stuff. Gay teens on a ranch with siblings or cousins & there's murder (but not of gays, no gay kids die), please. #ya #mswl
Susan Graham @GrahamophonesI want a witch tv channel. All witches. All the time. Witch network. WitchTV. It can be called The Coven. Or CovenTV. Dot com. Something. Witches. TV.
Susan Graham @GrahamophonesMy new morning self-pep-talk is whispering to myself, "have to fight. Have to Fly. Have to CROW. Havetosavemaggiehavetosavejack" before I leave my apartment and then chanting HOOK HOOK HOOK HOOK for the whole 40 minute train ride to work. You're welcome, NYC.
Sarah Hollowell 🐝 @sarahhollowellI just learned that last year my then-five-year-old nephew went up to a man skateboarding in the park and got the man to give him his skateboard
Honestly I just want mg about children who lie constantly, are not mean spirited for the most part, and get to keep everything they con you out of. #mswl
Claudie Arseneault🐙 @ClH2OArsAll of them? 😂
I have been having fun with snowed in and enemies to lovers but there are so many options!
I do want to see more ensemble casts with like an ALL ARO crew? #AroChat twitter.com/numbathyal/sta…
#mswl - all this. All of it.
Kelly Van Sant @bookishchickATMOSPHERIC READS. More than anything right now I'm craving books that establish a mood. If they include friendship, morally ambiguous characters, and a voice that grabs me and won't let go (and possibly witches) I'm in. twitter.com/ReLynnWrites/s…
SAME honestly #mswl
