i think a lot (like a LOT) about the wasted potential of this relationship, so if anyone has any angsty generals/princes on opposing sides of a war dynamics, i would ❤️ to see it! #MSWL

a few very Specific #MSWL items i’m actively looking for:
- YA superstore
- an #ownvoices PB about sacheen littlefeather

i’m still digging my way out from under a pile of submissions (sorry agents!!!) but there’s always room on my #MSWL for:
- unapologetically self-indulgent, diverse #YA
- YA historical fiction, mystery, & fantasy
- YA contemporary, either dark & spine-tingly or warm & lighthearted

i feel like maybe i’ve said this before, but i’d really like to read a middle grade in the vein of bob’s burgers—lighthearted & full of shenanigans, and ultimately about growing up in a close-knit working class family #mswl

Alyza Liu @alyzaliu · Feb 7

my first time watching fullmetal alchemist is going really well! pic.twitter.com/CLebThNdJZ

now that i’m officially done with FMA:B i just want to say that at the tippy-top of my #mswl are lawful neutral female characters like general olivier armstrong and postcolonial SFF that breaks my heart and puts it back together again
