we went to the library today and I looked at one of the books they had on display near the front
my reaction to the blurb (paraphrased):
book: "trans lady born to be a prince ran from home to be herself..."
me: sold
book: "...living as a dancer by day and thief at night..."
me: double sold
book: "...falls in love with a prince and gets drawn into politics again"
me: TRIPLE SOLD
@Sciborg ^

QUADRUPLE SOLD TELL ME THE BOOK PLEASE
I NEED TO KNOW
 
Stealing Thunder is the first, and I got the sequel as well
 
Beautiful
 
I thought certain queer birbs would be interested
 
Adding to my Gay Book List
 
The Author's Note says it's the first adult fantasy novel with a trans female protag written by a trans female author & published in a major press
 
6:49 PM
Pure <3
 
the quote on the front mentions dragons as well
in case you needed more reasons to like it
 
:o
 
> Dragons, politics, and a kick-ass trans protagonist - Stealing Thunder really has it all" - New York Times bestselling author PETER V. BRETT
 
I was going to have the first main protagonist of my manuscript be a trans man, but I didn't want to identify with him too strongly so I was like "fine, i guess he can be cis just this once" lol
Identifying too strongly makes me feel bad when i have to kick him around as part of the narrative
 
this is part of the reason I don't name my characters
let them be shadows of ideas, then they can suffer while I watch
 
6:57 PM
hehe
 
this is totally relevant
in PSE D&D Chatroom, Mar 13 at 22:24, by bobble
dragons > airships
 
very relevant
i couldn't find a reasonable way to incorporate airships into my setting, but hey, dragons
dragons are always better than no dragons
 
there is the one specific case where dragons that are currently attempting to kill you are not better than no dragons
 
but at least if you die you can have been eaten by a dragon, which is way cooler than just dying the normal way like a chump
 
don' know 'bout you, but I prefer living
 
7:06 PM
listen if i'm going to go, i'm going to go screaming in a blaze of glory and be consumed by dragonfire
not dying of a heart attack like a scrub
 
you have to be mortally wounded, but not so badly that you immediately die - no, you must stay alive for exactly the right amount of time to give a touching monologue, and then die right before you reveal the important information
 
obviously
and then Sam gets to dramatically cry over my corpse before i'm resurrected by the Plot MacGuffin
 
but when you come back, you've CHANGED
 
hire us, Hollywood
 
give us $100 million and a selection of your hot actors, what could possibly go wrong
 
7:14 PM
consider this chat thread my resume, i can start Monday
 
which hot actors would you like?
that sentence could be weird out of context
 
my requirements are:
- hot
- stupid
- likes plants
 
Vin Diesel, got it
 
obviously
 
Sid
@bobble Borg didn't say "family" though. :P
 
7:20 PM
this is true, important correction:
- hot
- stupid
- likes plants
- family
