Dean Lines @deanlinesWhen I was like 14, me and a few mates would “wag” French class and hide out in the soundproof drum room until lunch time. This went on for a few weeks when one day we discovered a “trap door” beneath the carpet tiled floor under the drum kit. We of course opened the trap door.. twitter.com/spur_of/status…
T.S. Ferguson @TeeEssIf somebody wanted to write an Utena-style pseudo-contemporary diverse fantasy with sword-fighting, butch and femme queer girls, and colorful, floral imagery, and then have their agent sub it to me, I wouldn't be upset. I'm just sayin'. #MSWL pic.twitter.com/SwBm0qMz5Y
This is still #MSWL!
Dana Schwartz @DanaSchwartzzzKids putting their teeth under their pillows is the most occultist shit in the world. Yes, child, put the discarded bone under your pillow. if you are lucky the tiny demon will come and make her purchase. Sell your bones for riches, my child, your youth will be spent soon.
I was just thinking about the scene in Goonies where they knock over the water cooler and find the hidden door in the fireplace. I would love to find a book that has that same level of adventure. +Booby traps! +Voice! +Diverse rep -Problematic jokes and stereotypes. #MSWL

Rebecca Mix @rebeccarmixsomeone write me a book about a sex-repulsed ace girl who keeps making pacts with witches and demons and fae, promising them her firstborn for awesome spells and shit, because jokes on them she's NEVER HAVING KIDS and the shenanigans that follow when they all figure it out

This story just CONSUMED me! I couldn't stop reading! I needed to know about Emil and Xaver! I'm sobbing! I would love to publish a story like this some day, but probably fictional inspired by real people! Code Name Verity with gay men and WWI! I'm a wreck right now! #MSWL!
A story (metaphorical or realistic) about the problems inherent in stan culture and tying your entire identity to art or an artist you love to the point where you'll blindly defend it/them w/o rational thought. #MSWL

Laura Zats @LZatsActually, this whole vague #MSWL is fun. Let's do more. twitter.com/LZats/status/8…
A horror that makes you shiver and panic like you did when your siblings locked you in the basement as a kid. #MSWL
