A cute short elf is plastered against a tall scary elf. The short elf says "I can fix him <3" while the scary elf says "literally I murdered your best friend and like a port city"

Loving “The Priory of the Orange Tree.” Great world building, compelling narrative and characters, and good to see some fantasy cliches turned on their head. It seems rushed somehow, though; I wonder if it could have been two volumes with a little less speeding through some of the story. About eighty pages to go and can barely put it down to toot #fantasy #samanthashannon #fantasybooks #sff #reading #fantasyfiction

Worlds of IF (February 1974)

My mind has been so poisoned by eating disorders rebranded as fitness regimes that I see this magazine as "Worlds Of Intermittent Fasting".

Everything about this is ugly and awful, but somehow not reaching the standard of "so bad it's good". I'm honestly impressed how bad it is.

#WritingWonders 10June- How would you describe your book?

Don't make me do this. 😅

Descriptors: heartwarming, romantic, tropical, funny, sad, philosophical, uplifting, rebellious.

As text: An epic fantasy tale about a young woman searching for a way to help her people. What she finds is knowledge, love, self-acceptance, and the one thing that will save not only her people, but Tredania as a whole: her destiny.

Is that alright?

I read So This is Ever After by FT Lukens on my flight to Chicago after my 17yo niece recommended it to me.

It is a delightful YA m/m fantasy romcom (with other m/f and f/f relationships present too). Light, funny, and very romcom trope-y in all the best ways. I like how the book modeled supportive friend relationships (effectively chosen family) and that in the world everyone is effectively assumed to be bi which opened up some really cool story bits!

Going to do something wild for my #fantasy story and completely cut out do-support for dialogue. What does that mean?

It means 'do' won't be used to form negative sentences or questions, so the sentences:

"I don't know." -> "I know not."
"Do you know him?" -> "You know him?"

Why am I doing this? Because it's fun! (I have a good in-universe explanation, I swear!) #WritingCommunity #AmWriting

#writingWonders 10/6 how would you describe your story: fun, epic, dark, sad, etc.? Why?

I like to describe it as grimdark. May not be the correct term, as my story does exude *some* hope, but all of the important characters (even the villain) are *all* morally grey, are always fuelled by their own desires rather than the greater good and there's an underlying air of despair too.

... And lots of people die gratuitously.

Started listening to #lambert again after a long time as it's great music for focused work. #open and #false are great records!

Surprised #m83 didn't make it to the top, as I was listening a lot to #fantasy such a great summer record 🌞

I really like the new #SleepToken album but it does have a couple of fillers. #chokehold is probably the best song they've ever written.

Also jammed some #converge and new #paramore because why not 🤷‍♂️

- Lambert, 88 streams

- Sleep Token, 54 streams
- Converge, 47 streams
- Paramore, 23 streams

When this one came to life it asked, 'Why am I green?' I couldn't answer that question, it's just mystery of the universe that can't be answered for the stuff I render.... 'I just like green, and sometimes I go, what if (insert thing that's normally not green)... but instead it's green,' is what I replied, knowing such an answer would never truly satisfy. 😂

#WritingWonders 6.n — Do natural calamities play a role in your story?

In one sense, the entire world is a natural calamity, but if you and your parents have lived your entire life in a climate disaster, are you going to think that?

Translated into the deep background of the #sff universe, there's really only this: A high-heat storm kills a secondary character's mother—who will incidentally be another secondary character's second love-of-his-life. His life is totally tragic. [Any more would be spoilers.] The main character experienced the steaming storm in her childhood, but from safer ground, and helped cleanup in the aftermath, which provides a sense of commonality within the story.

Maybe I should name the storm Cyclone McMuffin?

#gayBookReview "Deception" is an Arabian Nights #erotic #menage #fantasy by Grace R. Duncan.

Cyrus and Nadir are palace pleasure slaves, but also lovers, which is complicated. When an assassin threatens King Bathasar's life, his lover Teman convinces him to bring Cyrus and Nadir into their relationship to help protect him. If things were complicated before, they're even more so now, as the four men do more than pretend to be lovers.

"Kazti Girls," by Sciascia DeKay.

They have a tradition in the City of Azturaj of inviting Kazti girls into their homes to celebrate the year’s end.

The Kazti people live outside the city walls in turf huts with no material possessions but the plain, frayed dresses that leave their arms and ankles bare, and the earthen pots they use for cooking over open fires.

#Tolkien makes *a lot* of knowing winks to philologists in his fiction. In a letter he confesses, for instance, that the dragon Smaug's name is "a low philological jest". It is the past tense form of the old Germanic verb *smugan*, 'to creep, crawl'.

Swedish still has this verb, *att smyga*. And it is the etymological background to the name of a fishing village and resort town on the country's SW coast. Smaug should thus be named SMÖGEN in Swedish translation.

Stephen Colbert to Produce ‘Chronicles of Amber’ TV Series Adaptation

[I've always said that Nine Princes in Amber by Zelazny, et al, should be adapted. And I see now it's been set up as of January. I missed the announcement. But that's great. Colbert will see it's reasonably faithful and high quality.]

Roger Zelazny and I were friendly and I am his fan.

Here is my favourite FFXIV commission duo from 2021. I was doing flat designs only back then and sometimes I miss intricate simplicity of these. :)
I guess both are very summer-themed. Which team are you? Team sun or team sea? :D

Art nouveau illustration of miqote (cat folk) girl. She has tan skin, peach hair and brown stripes on her face. She is dressed in a golden gown. She holds a rose in her hand and there are some sunflowers in the background.
Art nouveau illustration of au'ra (dragon/lizard folk) girl. She has lavender skin, iridescent white horns and scales on her face and neck. She has dark hair decorated with small flowers. She is dressed in a purple kimono with flowery pattern. She holds a blue pendant in one of her hands. In the background there's a sea and some seashells with corals.
