Sci-fi โ€“ Iโ€™m not looking for hard sci-fi. I'd really like a sci-fi-horror like ALIEN (but not too much gore!! I can handle some though), and always open to space operas! No intergalactic wars.

Iโ€™m a total sucker for found family in any setting. Epic fantasy, space opera, I donโ€™t mind. Just give me
those heartfelt 'with-you-to-the-end-no-matter-what vibes' #MSWL

Give me some pacy dynamic space opera! Especially if it has a sense of fun and/or a rag-tag bunch of space rogues - I need me some of those Firefly vibes! (Under Fortunate Stars was a recent fave) #MSWL

I especilly want: Fantasy romance! (Not paranormal romance - needs to be fantasy!) Near-future adult sci-fi. Epic fantasy based on non-European settings. Space opera with non-European/American influences!

I'm not the right fit for hard sci-fi, but I'm open to it if it's lighter and accessible! For example, I'd be interested in a space opera.

Multiverses and space opera! I love expansive worlds with a close knit cast of characters, like NOPHEK GLOSS. I love the strange and alien, horror in space, and found family tropes. Another recent favourite of mine was THE SPACE BETWEEN WORLDS. #MSWL

Bonus #MSWL. I adore adventurous space opera of all kinds. (Ex Beth Revis Across the Universe or Passengers) but really want a focus on adventure and discovering new worlds.

Solar system or galaxy-spanning space opera. (NO humanoid aliens though!) Big story, big scale, big worldbuilding. Lotsa spaceships. #MSWL

More space operas, more non-Milky Way planet colonies, more alien species POV in stories. I donโ€™t want medieval Europe in space! #mswl

I am open to multiple genres right now! #MSWL
Adult sci fi (PLEASE send me a shockingly weird and powerful space opera)
Adult fantasy (twisty world politics and shifting loyalties with magic)
Adult romance (something that walks a WF line - the queerer the better, too)
