#MSWL = romance with a dash of awkward.

Her: I love animals
Him: I work with animals
Her: Are you a vet?
Him: No, I’m a butcher.

#MSWL
In YA and MG:
✔️ That quirky kid who cares so much about science and their "work" that pressures from social standings/social media never touch them. Humor's a must!

#MSWL for YA:
~ a FAUST retelling
~ a plot that brings to mind Ibsen's AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE
~ Grumpy antiheroes who can't seem to be evil (despite how they try) / humor is a plus!
