Dreadnought by April Daniels

A lesbian trans girl superhero fighting to be herself while saving the world? YES PLEASE.

Thoughts: I love that Danny coming out as trans weaves perfectly into the action-packed superhero plot. Danny has always accepted herself as a girl, but we get to follow her journey to accept herself as a hero.

The book doesn’t shy away from the harsh realities of being a 15-year-old transgender girl with an abusive father, so be prepared for that. The story didn’t have (or need) a romance, but I do hope that we’ll see Danny get a girlfriend in the sequel. (July 2017!)

Summary: Until Dreadnought fell out of the sky and died right in front of her, Danny was trying to keep people from finding out she’s transgender. But before he expired, Dreadnought passed his mantle to her, and those secondhand superpowers transformed Danny’s body into what she’s always thought it should be. Now there’s no hiding that she’s a girl.

It should be the happiest time of her life, but Danny’s first weeks finally living in a body that fits her are more difficult and complicated than she could have imagined. Between her father’s dangerous obsession with “curing” her girlhood, her best friend suddenly acting like he’s entitled to date her, and her fellow superheroes arguing over her place in their ranks, Danny feels like she’s in over her head.

She doesn’t have much time to adjust. Dreadnought’s murderer—a cyborg named Utopia—still haunts the streets of New Port City, threatening destruction. If Danny can’t sort through the confusion of coming out, master her powers, and stop Utopia in time, humanity faces extinction.

I think I accidentally sent this ask to the wrong blog last time (my bad). Eren and Levi were high school sweethearts. Eren goes missing. He was abducted by aliens. Ten years pass. Eren seemingly returns out of the blue one day, not a day older then when he went missing. Eren acts like nothing crazy happened . . . but Levi can tell he's somehow different now. Their song was Fade Into You by Mazzy Star. I cried twice. **Also thank you so much for running this blog, deeply appreciated~

Oh you might have! I don’t remember receiving this. It’s a super unique fic by the sounds of it, so I’m excited to read it! Here it is:

Starboy
Summary: In 1996, my boyfriend Eren Jaeger was abducted. In 2014, he suddenly reappeared. Only, he’s still sixteen and what’s more, he doesn’t remember anything that happened to him during his disappearance.

Just received: Dragon Age Inquisition Tarot, a 78 card tarot based on a video game. The last time I played a video game was in an arcade sometime in the 90s, but I’d be willing to give this one a try based on this enchanting art. The cards don’t seem to correlate for the most part with any of the usual established tarot symbolism and I didn’t receive any guide or LWB to go with this but they feel good in the hand and inviting to read with anyhow.
