Plant magic. That's it that's the tweet. I want the sharpest thorniest hufflepuff imaginable and their extremely beloved plant clippings #MSWL

gaslighting is one of the most terrifying things you can do to someone who loves you, and an EXCELLENT villain trait, I say, through tears #MSWL

Jennifer '🐍' Grimaldi @JA_Grimaldi · 11 Nov 2019

if you send me a creepy thriller/suspense/whatever abt the extreme horror of having one (1) person to set your world view however they like it I will cry and then I will call you #MSWL

And naturally this means I'm especially interested in diverse voices, neurodivergent characters, LGBT+ everything (including and especially nb/trans leads), both in this space and everything I represent #MSWL

I'm always on board for a good takedown of capitalism/imperialism #MSWL

*scifi* more than any other genre, I want my SF to be *dripping* with social commentary. Particular obsessions include: robots + gender, inherited trauma, generation ships, & mythologizing on a grand scale #MSWL

Me: that's my brand, monsters + love
@Hatalie: what about monsters IN love?
Me: omg omg

Evergreen #MSWL : monsters monsters monsters. Scary monsters and monsters who are trying and truly awful monsters, please just let me love them

but ALSO (outside of category romance) give me gothic tragedy, and unrequited yearning, falling for the absolute wrong person & never climbing out #MSWL

Jennifer '🐍' Grimaldi @JA_Grimaldi · 10 Nov 2019

*romance* I love love 😭. I'm looking for own voices, fluff, every trope in the book (slow burns! enemies-to-lovers! trapped somewhere overnight & it's COLD & they have to HUDDLE omgomg) #MSWL

The Ripped Bodice @TheRippedBodice

If I'm being completely honest the romance novel I most want to read right now is one about editors @bonappetit falling in love in the test kitchen

#MSWL omg yes, baking is my happy place. what if... they had to create a meal together...? late nights over failed recipes...? kissing in triumph when the souffle finally sets just right...?

Jennifer '🐍' Grimaldi @JA_Grimaldi · 12 Apr 2019

I want to be terrified but also crying?The best horror cracks me open like a nut.
