Rachel Strolle 😴😴😴 @recitrachelI kinda want an anthology that’s all short stories of people affected by the chosen one saving the world a la the cabbage man in Last Airbender
Like each story is a different person who is an “extra” in the overall fantasy trope
#mswl this as an interconnected novel in the vein of Auggie chapters in Wonder + the side-character novellas
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.
Cheryl B. Klein @chavelaqueI enjoyed TSIAAS, but I kept being distracted by calculating their routes & travel times around NYC. “She could *maybe* get there in half an hour if she takes the B to the A & all the trains arrive just right...”
FYI, if it’s legally possible, I would 100% publish an #ownvoices YA novel about a teenage girl or boy in the Motown star system. Signed, someone who read DREAMGIRL: MY LIFE AS A SUPREME in high school & *loved* it. #mswl
Amy Fitzgerald @Amy_Ariel_Fitz2 for 2 so far: Emilia Clarke noting "She's not mad, she's traumatized" is an equally pointed departure from how the dudes insist on framing things.
I don't get to acquire much fantasy BUT WHEN I DO it's got female characters with nuance as well as grit, trauma fallout and mental health issues depicted realistically, and no dudes getting away with killing their girlfriends #MSWL
I'm over suspense that features a man controlling the strings with the central protag overpowered and manipulated by him. Give me your thrillers with dynamic leading women. Show me what suspense looks like btwn friends, btwn sisters. Explore these relationships deeply #MSWL
