No funny business, but I want more tattooed queer LIs, THANK YOU. Neck tata, knuckle tats, knee tats, lips tats, I’ll take an eyelid or two as well. I am DESPERATE. #mswl

Also, damn the Blindspot premise was *chef’s kiss.

I ALWAYS forget to mention this, so thanks @samanthashnh for jogging the noggin!

I would LOVE women’s fiction featuring early 20s-early 20s womyn who are POC and queer POC! Particularly, black womyn. Something fresh & high-concept! #mswl

I am DYING for a second chance romance in YA or Adult. Exes or distanced lovers who never quite fit right when they were first together, whatever the reason! I love being able to see an old relationship with opened eyes as the new one grows. #mswl

I just want a contemporary YA featuring queer, angsty alt kids, damn it! #mswl

I want writing that feels like Tegan and Sara's album So Jealous. #mswl

I just want a book like Netflix’s Marianne but actually queer. #MSWL I really only want to read horror with queer characters that’s fresh right now.

Y’all know I love Horror. Do y’all know that the first movie I ever saw was Child’s Play? That I grew up on that series, and Nightmare on Elm St, and Friday The 13th?

I like my horror with comedy, scares, and a largely teen cast. W/genre bends like The Final Girls (2015) #mswl

I just want to read something dark with a queer femme-leaning MC who doesn’t give much of a shit until she’s faced with her worst fear. Is that so much to ask?!?! #mswl

As a queer person, I’ve never dated anybody without body hair. So, love to see more queer folks in books & film with armpit, leg, tummy, pubic hair etc, please! #mswl #generalwl

Urban Legend is one of my favorite movies from childhood. I burned the shit out of our VHS. I would love an Urban Legend + The Craft YA or Adult Horror or Spec Fic. Make sure to queer it up, too! #mswl

I need more kids in YA who are incarcerated, recently incarcerated, friends with incarcerated kids, etc and show them in all their multifaceted complexities. We are doing an absolute disservice to these kids in our fiction. #mswl

Where is the YA and Adult horror featuring queers and BIPOC (and def QTPOC!!!) in my inbox? #mswl

Kiki Nguyen @kianangu · Feb 6

Instead of cooking/baking show rom-coms, can we get a mukbang rivals rom-com? #mswl

Still looking for more quirky masc-of-center kids in f/f, butches & futches. More non-binary characters, transmasc & transfemme & agender characters living their messiest best lives, please! #mswl

I think of The Yellow Wallpaper endlessly, all the time. A horror novel or Women’s Fiction adaptation/play of this short story would slay me. #mswl
