Isaac Fitzgerald🤞🏻🖤 @IsaacFitzgeraldYou CANNOT convince me that this dude isn't actually the Loch Ness monster in human form, who surfaces every so often to poke around and go "Yup, still no sign of ol' Nessy" before quietly returning to the water and transforming back into his original shape deep beneath the waves twitter.com/DannyDutch/sta…
#MSWL this is the shapeshifter content we need
NIH 🐻 @NIH_BearQuick. Name a single female character in any medium whose primary narrative arc is a redemption story.
A woman who starts as a piece of shit and is redeemed by heroism or self reflection.
Any character. Any medium.
yes. more of this, please. #mswl
Micro SF/F stories @MicroSFFThe emperor woke when a hand was placed over his mouth.
"I evaded all your guards," the assassin whispered, "and outwitted all your traps."
The emperor nodded, and the assassin took a step back.
"Is it five three?" the emperor asked
"Yes, I've won five. Let's swap clothes now."
Kristina is full of Love. @monthoflove !! @kristinacarrollHi! I am Kristina. I make art for games, books and myself. I've worked on titles like Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Call of Cthulhu and more. In my personal work I explore symbolism & archetypes around femininity.

These are *gorgeous;* somebody write me the novel that goes with the second picture, please! #MSWL
L. D. Lewis 🦊 @EllethevillainI need more books that use settings *as* characters as well. I love living histories! Places can d/evolve and have arcs of their own. Stories can happen *to* and not just *in* them. And exploring that doesn't have to be pigeonholed as worldbuilding alone.
One of the things good gothic fantasy & claustrophobic scary spaceship stories have in common is that they both do setting-as-character well.
Really, any setting can be made to feel like a character. Creepy castle? Floating city? Jungle that *devours* people? YES.
basghetti @enotonikif you're having a bad day, just remember that charlize theron used to knit on set between takes of mad max: fury road and that many of the war boys asked her to teach them to knit too, leading to pictures like this pic.twitter.com/eygHobrHxn
This picture is an entire #MSWL.
Lauren Panepinto @PlanetpintoWill some author pitch a manuscript on the Fantasy series version of this so @VonBrooklyn & I can design covers for it? historydaily.org/female-librari…

bao ngo @srirachadrinkerlol i lose my shit every time i remember that k-pop was created by the south korean government in the late 90s as an export in order to pay back a $57 billion IMF loan
Someone write me the science fiction or fantasy take on this. #mswl
MENA_Conflict @MENA_ConflictToday I learned about the Harpy eagle, and I wish I hadn't. That motherfucker is scheming to kill me. I know it. pic.twitter.com/VK7A7irx6k
Somebody write me a fantasy novel starring a harpy eagle shapeshifter. I need more terrifyingly weird-looking Animagi in my life. #MSWL
Samira Ahmed @sam_aye_ahmI want to write some Marie Kondo-inspired fanfic where it's just me smacking xenophobic/culturally insensitive/racist critics in the back of the head with unwanted books, which transfers so much joy into said books, they're lovingly re-homed instantly.
#MSWL! I don’t know what genre this would be, and I frankly don’t care.
New year, new (evergreen) #MSWL:
Smash the patriarchy.
Give me men who are gentle, with soft, artistic souls & loved ones to care for
Give me women who are ruthless & sharp-edged w/o being ground to dust for it
Give me NB heroes who are any & all of these, who live their truth
Tasha Suri @tashadrinksteathe fact there isn't a book about elegant, dangerous desi fae or vampires when we have this picture of deepika and ranveer as inspiration offends me on a spiritual level pic.twitter.com/WuCyzqnOEZ
A type of primary relationship I’d love to see more in #SFF: comrades-in-arms—not only warrior/soldier siblings-in-battle, but also people fighting for common causes in politics, in the workplace, in civil society, &c. who believe viscerally in their purpose & in each other #MSWL
