also please give me interracial romances that aren't just a bipoc with a white person. i'd love to see any other combination of cultures or even religions on the table!

romances with any combination of neurodivergence or sexuality are also high on my wishlist. show me characters who struggle in their identities and mental wellbeing who find each other in the chaos of themselves.

i forgot to mention rivals to lovers, when the competitive streak is RIGHT THERE, but then suddenly they find something together aside from their ongoing competition. think like devi and ben in never have i ever!

enemies to lovers, exes to lovers, friends to lovers... the building tension and excitement in each of these scenarios is so fun, plus the unfolding of their inevitable double-take moment of "oh my god i LIKE them" is so entertaining~

low stakes teen romance. give me contemporary life problems and teen drama tinted by culture and mental health issues, like in the netflix series never have i ever.

stories that feature environmentalism in some way, whether they hearken back to the solarpunk vibes of perfect dark or the extreme measures in final fantasy vii to save the planet

any narrative that involves video games. i grew up on books and games, from the t*witches series to the legend of zelda, and i'd love to see more books that feature video games as an important part of the protagonists lives

ragtag team-ups and heists! some of my favourite brooklyn nine-nine episodes are the halloween heist episodes, and while the heist in six of crows was the least memorable part of that book, it was still there amongst all the character-building and relationships
