I spent my vacation reading every Holmes/Watson fic on The Seventeenth Step and am now craving a genuinely queer Sherlock Holmes YA retelling, historical or contemporary #mswl

#MSWL: Adult Fiction: family sagas, complex juicy historical (think The Crimson Petal & the White, Queen of the Night), female friendship stories, Millennial fiction (think Sally Rooney or Casey McQuiston)

Please send me your romance! Especially if it's diverse. I'd love to see more queer love stories in my inbox, as well as stories where POC get their happy endings! I don't care if it's contemporary, historical, or paranormal.

QUEER and/or POC people DESERVE LOVE TOO! #MSWL

Ahhh, one more... stories set in Mexico. Contemporary, Historical, Futuristic (maybe especially this), anything. Something with a lgbt love story as a subplot and a dynamic adventure as the main. Okay done now. Maybe. #mswl
