Sylvan Creekmore @SylvanCreekmoreRaya and the Last Dragon is both gay and amazing, I will take no further questions thank you
#mswl Raya and the Last Dragon where they actually kiss at the end. And in the middle. Lost more kissing.
Lane @lanewriteswordsThe first enemies-to-lovers was Epic of Gilgamesh, 1800 BC out of Mesopotamia. The next person who claims a YA white person invented the trope will have dishonor on their family and cow.
CORRECT, AND I AM STILL WAITING FOR MY YA RETELLING, OK? #mswl
#mswl ok so I really love the trope of the Plot to Lose Our Virginity because it's such a real pressure many teens feel + is a great setup for hijinx BUT would love to see a version where the protag discovers they're ace & intentionally remains a virgin ("virgin") & embraces it
So you know how in every “I saw my future” plot the future’s either horrible or miserable and the protag has to do some soul searching to avoid it? #mswl where the future is GREAT but then one thing in the present happens differently and the character has to scramble to fix it
Mason Deaver @masondeaver“Clean Teen” books? 🤔
Seems to be code for “straight” imo, or at the very least “isn’t it great how they’re gay but it’s not, like, a big deal!” plus no sex/cursing/drugs/drinking. SO, new #mswl: write me a “clean teen” book with a SUPER QUEER mc that I can rub in their faces.
madkíns @maveytrashredemption arcs are good and all but have you ever watched someone slowly become the villain
Bonus points if you do both at once with each of your two main characters AND the whole thing is heartbreaking #mswl
Jen Wilde @jenmariewildeOn my way home tonight I walked past two really drunk dudes arguing. Like YELLING at each other in the middle of the street...
Dude 1: I JUST NEED YOU TO BE THE ILANA TO MY ABBI RIGHT NOW, BRO!
Dude 2: I *AM* BEING THE ILANA TO YOUR ABBI, DUDE! I’M TOTALLY YOUR ILANA!
