unpaid tab at le coucou @rachsymethere were a lot of articles in the 1920s to look out for "plain women" who will swindle you because the going idea was that hot ladies used their wiles and that was fine but homely women had to develop their brains and so were cunning as hell pic.twitter.com/xQX7AOmNxt

SOMEONE PLEASE USE THIS TO WRITE ME NOVELS #mswl
Emily Nussbaum @emilynussbaumThis is a cool idea—a gender-switch that raises up new versions of what Bobby's issue is. theguardian.com/stage/2018/apr…
GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME GIMME.
Also, basically give me a modern, gender-flipped novelization of this. #mswl
At lunch @hilaryredmon told me that the most sought after job in her NJ suburb is the ONE spot at the local indie bookstore for a high school senior. PLEASE someone write me a YA novel about two teens' cutthroat competition for that job. #mswl
Eric Francisco @EricTheDragonThere is a 17yo boy on Reddit asking advice how to ask out a trans girl at school. It is absolutely heartwarming, and also he’s a really good writer? dg.reddit.com/r/relationship… pic.twitter.com/CC3SnNssL7
I WOULD READ THIS YA NOVEL SO FAST #MSWL
Delilah S. Dawson @DelilahSDawsonHere is my controversial Star Wars statement: I would love to read a teen Poe Dameron YA in which he breaks hearts across the galaxy while longing for his OTP, but I don't think I'm the person to write it. We need #ownvoices for that. So somebody write that, and I'll read it.
Nicole Cliffe @Nicole_CliffeOkay, here we go. Delightfully bizarre stories about the British Public School Monolith (Chandos focuses on 1800-1864, Gathorne-Hardy starts w St Peter’s, York Minster, founded in 625. Not a typo.)
Nicole’s whole thread here is a #mswl btw.
bolu babalola. @BeeBabsImagine being part of a middling channel USA drama and then suddenly marrying into the British monarchy this is so wild like actually who has the rights? This isnt made for TV shit this is a cinematic securing of the bag
I’ll take a romance novel about Prince Barry and Creighan Clarkle any time. #mswl.
