Hey! I've been seeing a few posts about a book about a girl who can't die, and I was just wondering, what exactly is it? Like, is it a story told through poetry, or...?
funny story actually, i somehow convinced myself that on top of the poetry what i really needed was to write a novel, you know, to challenge myself haha. the concept of the girl who cant die (alternatively the girl who keeps dying but also keeps coming back) came from a poem i published called GIRL SURVIVES and from there i quickly determined three things:
1. it’s gonna be super gay.
2. mermaids. bc why not. or rather, sea witches who are also sometimes referred to as the Mer bc if they choose to they can take the form of what you’d imagine when you think of a mermaid.
3. like. super, super gay.
basically its an actual proper full length novel currently at about 18.5k words. i started working on it about a week and a half ago, and i have a pretty decent idea of where it’s going plot wise (although bits and pieces keep surprising me haha) i’m not quite ready to reveal a title (which i do actually have, i think) or the synopsis yet, but it’ll be coming soon probably.
Does it ever just really upset people when you remember how genuinely surprised Percy is when people compliment him.
Like when he was offered godhood and he was so shocked, or when Chiron called him a leader and he was so surprised.
He gets so surprised that people have a crush on him too, like Calypso for instance. He just has such a low self esteem and it’s so sad.
Are you ever sitting there thinking about book characters and think “I love these people so much.” Like I know they aren’t real, and I guess feeling that way is kind of dorky, but I love and want to protect so many literary characters.
Hello! Your local mod here. A few months ago, I spent a lot of time researching books with asexual main characters and made a list of YA books with explicit rep. While making the list, I found lots of books that didn’t fit my requirements and had lots of requests to know what other books I found. I linked people to sources I used, but none 100% matched and there are at least four books that could be added. So I wanted something that had a wide range, could be updated, and could be shared easily. Hence, even though it doesn’t fully fit this blog, it’s going here!
This is a list of books in all age ranges. Some of the books have explicit representation - using the words or giving the definition without using the word - and some don’t. Some of them could be considered problematic. If you want more details on any of the books, feel free to message me privately. I’ll also be linking to the goodreads page for each book [links tk], so you can check reviews for feedback (it can be tricky, but see what shelves people add it too). I’ll also link my sources at the end of this post in case they update with things I don’t catch or they have details I didn’t include. And, as a final note, sometimes the asexual main characters aren’t main characters until later in a book series. In those cases, I’ll link to the first book and leave a note about which book has the main character.
As I said, this will be a continuously updated list. I’ll be adding in goodreads links now that the list is up (as long as tumblr allows), adding books that come up, and can move/remove books if anybody thinks they don’t fit, since most of this was research, not my actual reading list. So, feel free to message me with any comments or concerns and otherwise, enjoy!
Update #1: Links added; Running with the Pack, High and Tight, and More Than Enough added; Shock and Awe moved.
being a comics fan is Wild™ bc sometimes you will list every bad thing a character has ever done over 70 years of comics history and other times u will be like “this is my favorite character ever, i love them, and my interpretation of them is based entirely off a six-issue miniseries from 1992”

“James was equally thankful and frustrated for Josh’s rationality. Thankful, because Josh still offered support though he remained unconvinced the dreams came true. Frustrated, because Josh remained unconvinced the dreams came true yet still offered support.”
APTV caught up with Andy Black
to talk about the (many) nicknames he’s had throughout the years. He
explains that, more than anything, they are a way to show how he’s grown
as a person and as an artist, starting with his MySpace moniker Andy
“The way that I built myself, not unlike my favorite comic book characters, was to create this version of myself,” he says.
Watch the video to hear why he chose “Andy Black” and how social media played a part in everything.

i just wish frank coulda been more chinese, instead of chinese-canadian with a couple mandarin words thrown in and dragon-history-shapeshifting. i wish he could've known of more traditions instead of just the grave-sweeping one, (1/2)
which has an actual chinese name, qingming. i wish we could’ve seen the reactions to the roman gods against buddhism, taoism, etc., i just wish in a book where a character is chinese and cool!! we couldve seen more of the chinese culture (2/2)
If Rick hadn’t tried to cram seven (and then nine) main characters into the one series he could have given us more backstory and character development, and we probably would have gotten to see more of Frank’s heritage and culture. I agree that it’s a shame that it wasn’t utilised more.
@music-from-the-commonwealth Here’s my art trade!!! I really hope you enjoy it! 😁
My inspiration was that time where Elenora finds out MacCready reads the Grognak comics. So I came up with a moment that they’re sitting there chatting about the story and stuff. And also sharing about them being the comic book characters!(sounds kinda silly, I wanted to do it though lol)
I remembered too Elenora liked the Silver Shroud so she would him and MacCready would be silly and dress up as Grognak The Barbarian.
