• Drown Your Sorrows•

Y/N walks into the living room (of her shared apartment with the Goldstein sisters) balancing an impressing pile of various volumes on magical creatures she had spent hours showering through the archives- for Newt.
“Newt I-” Her face falls as she spots Newt and Porpentia curled up in front of the fireplace, going through his field journals. “Newt?” She asks softly, her voice cracking slightly as the two don’t take any notice of her presence, Newt speaking animatedly about his favorite creatures.
She ducks her head, leaving the towering pile of books on the smooth oak coffee table behind the two, holding her arms and turning to walk quickly out of the room.
Newt laughs, an occurrence that doesn’t usually happen, and Y/N freezes, holding her elbows, her back turned to the two, staring at the floor as a pang of burning emptiness shoots through her chest.
She quietly exits the room, sliding the door shut silently behind her, and just about walks into Queenie, who is preparing dinner in the kitchen.
The blonde takes one look at Y/N and her face softens, “Sweetie-”
“Please don’t read my mind-” Y/N mutters, staring at the floor, “Please!” She glares up at her friend and walks briskly to her room.

I volunteer at a bird rehabilitation clinic in New York City, where half the animals that come in every year are pigeons. We get dozens of different species of birds, and still - half the patients, pigeons. And all the staff and volunteers love your comics.

A–Z Book Recs

@macrolit’s A–Z book recommendations seemed like a challenge and like a lot of fun, so here we go! I thought it would be hard to find each letter, but honestly it turned out to be more difficult to narrow it down for some of them. Where it was contentious, I chose the lesser-known, under-appreciated of the books up for each letter.

Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman – for people who loved American Gods, read this semi-sequel about the sons of Mr. Nancy. 

The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro – a story about memory and love set in a foggy, post-Arthur England. 

The Complete Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino – a collection of trippy, speculative fiction short stories. 

Dictionary of the Khazars by Milorad Pavić – for lovers of twisty, magical realist, tales who love Borges and are willing to put in some work.

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire – a quick novella with excellent world building.

Ficciones by Jorge Luis Borges – my favorite short story collection of all time—the inventor’s spec fic and magical realist tales.

The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker – fans of The Night Circus and American Gods will enjoy this fantastical romance set in New York City.

Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened by Allie Brosh – hilarious and so relatable, especially for anyone who’s been through depression.

Ink and Bone by Rachel Caine – a magnificent, fun alternative world about the power of books and the danger of centralizing knowledge.

Just Kids by Patti Smith – a dark tale of artists falling in love in the artistic backchannels of the Village.

The Last Report of the Miracles at Little No Horse by Louise Erdrich – a magical realist tale by an own voices author.

Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town by Jon Krakauer – rough, but vital—Krakauer picks apart rape culture by telling the stories of women who tried to get justice.

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman – probably my favorite book of all time. an urban fantasy set in the underground of London.

Orlando by Virginia Woolf – in the 1920s, Woolf wrote a magical realist tale about with a gender-fluid MC. iconic. 

Paradise by Toni Morrison – one of morrison’s most underrated novels. a masterpiece about women sticking together.

Deltora Quest by Emily Rodda I struggled to find a Q ahaha, but I loved these books when I was younger!

The Refrigerator Monologues by Catherynne Valente – interconnected short stories about the women whose stories are refrigerated to further those of men in a comic books setting.

The Shell Collector by Anthony Doerr – short stories that changed the way i think about writing. they’re beautiful, magical realist, and haunting.

Things We Lost in the Fire: Stories by Mariana Enríquez – I didn’t sleep for days after reading these translated gothic horror tales.

Uprooted by Naomi Novik – a magical standalone about female friendship and an ancient power.

Van Gogh: The Life by Steven Naifeh and Gregory White Smith – a magnificent biography that speaks to the genius and madness of the artist.

Who Fears Death by Nnedi Okorafor – brilliant, and was just optioned to become an HBO show!

Yes Please by Amy Poehler – this was a fun and funny memoir by Poehler that encourages the reader to be unabashedly themselves.

Zombies vs. Unicorns ed. by Holly Black – this book was fun. the title says it all: it’s full of stories about either zombies or unicorns.
