Stories can offer consolation for suffering and words to name our experience. Stories can tell us who we are and what are these hourglasses through which we sift, and suggest ways of imagining a future that, without calling for comfortable happy ending, may offer us ways of remaining alive, together, on this much-abused earth.

The Trylle Trilogy by Amanda Hocking. 

When Wendy Everly was six-years-old, her mother was convinced she was a monster and tried to kill her. It isn’t until eleven years later that Wendy finds out her mother might’ve been telling the truth. With the help of Finn Holmes, Wendy finds herself in a world she never knew existed - and it’s one she’s not sure if she wants to be a part of.

have you heard about the web series based on the story carmilla? it's basically lesbian vampire college shenanigans. if you have some spare time there's only 15 episodes that are each under 6 minutes. also the main ship has a major height difference.

way ahead of you anon
