#mswl instead of taking down the evil king, give me a linguistic fantasy where the plot is recovering the indigenous magic of a dead language that colonial powers tried to erase

Listen I know fantasy loves its mages, assassins, warrior princesses, and knights but please give me more scholars, shamans, mapmakers, artisans, and bards - I would love to see more creatives having adventures in SFF! #MSWL

Reaaally itching for a Martial Arts fantasy in the vein of Jade City x Ong Bak, but more female forward. Extra points if it blends mythology and anticolonial themes

In Gothic fantasy: Really looking for something outside of the London aesthetic. Show me a Caribbean or Latinx Gothic

In modern fantasy I'm looking for things like Jade City. Give me family shenanigans, politics, with really unique magic systems. Babel and Black Sun are always top on my list. Overall anything with colonizer bashing themes, non-western mythos, pirates, or dark academics

A #mswl update since I’m still open to queries! Looking for martial arts fantasies with strong female leads that celebrate EA/culture. Non-western SFF inspired by mythologies. Dark fantasies with complex lore & unhinged characters. Colonizer bashing dark academia & historical fic

Also if you have anything “inspired” by these stories, I’m also open to historical fiction or historical fantasy
