Daniel Barnes @ C2E2 L12 @Danny8bitThe 2014 Ninja Turtles movie might be a bit of a mixed bag, but I’ve always loved the scene where they all start beatboxing in the elevator, on the way to their battle with Shredder
It perfectly captures the fact that they’re goofy teenage brothers pic.twitter.com/pTgs2Oh615
I think abt TMNT a lot, lol.
I want a YA ft. a friendship dynamic (esp. w/ a group of boys!) that reflects this sibling dynamic, & directly opposes—
The societal idea that boys aren't allowed to show they love each other the way these idiots did!
I JUST REALLY LOVE TMNT! #MSWL
Specific #MSWL request: I want a #YA ft. three brothers. An exploration of masculinity that isn't toxic. And adventure.
This is a very thinly veiled way of asking for "The Tale of the Three Brothers" but. Different.
Ok, cool, glad we're all on the same page.
My #MSWL tends to trend v contemporary bc those ideas are most immediate to me, so here are some non-contemp topics I enjoy in both #YA & #MG:
• Pirates (sea- & space-faring)
• Worlds & relationships as lush as Critical Role
• Faeries faeries faeries
• Mythological lore
I need a fake dating rom-com à la TATBILB but... just make it as gay as possible.
I need misunderstandings & people assuming someone is straight when they're actually bi w that "oh shit, were you flirting w me this whole time?" moment.
& brown. Make it v brown. #MSWL #YA #LGBT
Circling back to the Area 51 Raid: if anyone happens to have a fictionalized account of the whole night for #YA that may or may not actually end with aliens I am all about that. Weird & irreverent narratives featuring tin-hat-conspiracy kids w deep, meaningful relationships #MSWL
I am just a girl, standing in front of the internet, begging for a young #YA / upper #MG about a #Latinx girl who has to choose between a quinceañera and a sweet sixteen because Americanization™️ and all the cultural / generational drama that ensues #MSWL
Back to Work Day is here! Happy January 2, 2019!
Agents: let’s hang out 👀
A new year reminder that I’m looking for diverse #MG, #YA, and #graphicnovels - you can learn more at my #MSWL below 👇🏼
AN #MSWL UPDATE:
I have inherited three middle grades. For a grand total of five MGs making up my entire list.
... safe to say I’m trying to find that perfect YA to balance it out right about now. Keep that in ya noggins for 2019 (but I’m still v much interested in seeing MG!)
🚨 ATENCIÓN 🚨
I have some new followers and I've made some new friends and I hadn't updated my #MSWL since April, so, surprise! Check out what kind of #YA & #MG projects I'm looking for below 🥳
