Dark dark dark DARK. GIMME DARK
And just to be clear—this doesn’t mean “make it as bloody/gross/crude/disgusting as possible (i.e. violence for no reason, sexual assault, etc.). I’m talking themes. Emotions. Difficult—impossible—decisions. Angry, conflicted protagonists.
YA fantasy! I’m all about witchy blood magic—darker is better (does anyone see a trend here yet). Queer! Enemies to lovers! Magic with consequences! Tangled friend/family relationships! Unique plot lines with lots of tension/conflict! AND DON’T FORGET THE KISSING I NEED KISSING
YA contemporary! I’m dying for a queer story revolving, especially one revolving around mental health. I want unique concepts and HIGH STAKES and lots of conflict. I tend to be drawn to more melancholy tones in contemporary—but adore humor and light sprinkled throughout!
I saw JOKER yesterday
if someone wants to give me the psychological study and social commentary regarding mental illness and poverty of JOKER
with the moral ambiguity and superhuman powers of VICIOUS
I would not be mad about it
#MSWL I am DYING for a queer, #ownvoices contemporary surrounding mental health
DO YOU KNOW WHAT I WOULD GIVE FOR A QUEER STORY ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS WITH A LYRICAL VOICE
(hint: it rhymes with bowl and the devil would be happy to trade me)
a l i c e - can never finish readathons @monodramajpegAs much as I'm dirty trash for the 'innocent girl gets with tall, dark, and kinda evil dude' trope, I would really kill for the opposite too. Where are the stories with the sweet, naive guys and their evil, deadly girlfriends?? Is that too much to ask??
