Connor Goldsmith @dreamoforgonon@hannahnpbowman @maxgladstone don't forget how centaurs and merfolk aren't classified as people and everyone's like oh that's fine
Re: this thread, if someone wants to write me a fantasy novel about a kid who goes to magic school but realizes the entire structure of the magical world needs to be overthrown, I would be 100% there for that. Bonus points if they have to side with the dark wizards to do it #MSWL
Cathleen McAllister ✨ @cafweenAs the professor guided them through the cavernous hall, sunlight beamed through the colorful lamps and glass ceiling warming the students’ faces. ‘The Great Seed Library,’ she explained, ‘contains every commonplace, rare, and magical seed known to botanists of the world.’ pic.twitter.com/0vi73Ke5Tz
Dylan Meconis @dmeconisIn all the endless breathless fictionalized takes on Jack the Ripper, have we ever done the one where the reason he disappeared was because a team of vengeful Victorian sex workers systematically hunted him down, took him out and dumped his body in the Thames?
Foz Meadows @fozmeadowsY'know, Sleeping Beauty pricking her finger on a spindle and dying is a whole lot more ironic if her mother is the now-queen, former-miller's-daughter from Rumplestiltskin who was meant to spin straw into gold and the evil fairy godmother is avenging her fellow magician.
Lindsey Hall @LindseyHall17#MSWL fantasy w/ a translator protag. There's so much power in language-- how they translate for a ruler effects a whole kingdom, eg. I want to see the nuances & consequences of deciding how & what to translate, word play between languages, times when translation falls short
I would 100% love this. Also: messenger protagonist in a military fantasy setting. The folks who ride all night to bring the warnings of disaster. #MSWL
Margaret Rogerson @MarRogersonI unironically love this cliche so much that I suspect my books are going to contain increasingly extravagant balls, longer & more grandiose each time, until my fifth or sixth book just takes place in a court trapped in an eternal ball twitter.com/Freepaperclips…
I...actually think a book set in an eternal masquerade ball would be great. Think Lady Pole trapped in the ball in Lost Hope. #mswl
Max Gladstone @maxgladstone@hannahnpbowman @leeflower Not about Kylo Ren, to be clear: never seen an SFnal truth and reconciliation commission.
If anybody has an SFnal truth and reconciliation commission story, I WANT IT DESPERATELY. #MSWL
The OED @OEDThe noun ‘wretch’, from Old English ‘wrecca’ (exile), is related to Old High German ‘reccho’ meaning ‘exile, adventurer, knight errant’.
Hannah Bowman @hannahnpbowmanThis whole tumblr is my #MSWL. thevaultoftheatomicspaceage.tumblr.com/post/152776543…
P.S. If someone wants to write me SF with the otherworldly creepy beauty of FORBIDDEN PLANET but without the sexism, that'd be great. #MSWL
