We only have SEVEN DAYS! We can do this with your help!
Things Crows on Heartstrings has:
LGBT Characters who carry their own stories without dying to further a cishet whiteboys character arc, serve as a gimmick, or to be used as homoerotic bait for a straight character
Exhibit A: Roses Grow for Mammet Men is about two boys, an elf named Dath, and a faerie named Mercurie. Both boys are trying to figure out just what love is and unify their kingdoms to create a massive alliance. But can Dath prove to Mercurie that he wants him for more than just to secure an alliance? I dunno, if I were Mercurie, I would not be down for it. Magic and Mammet Men, Roses and Tragedy. All those things are a promise, not a threat.
Strong WOMEN being strong and flawed and more interesting than any jerk boy. No Mary Sues here! (God I hate that term though)
Exhibit B: Death is a girl named Caterina Kazakova. She harvests souls with her
sniper rifle and watches as war tears through her country, as it always
has and always will. When Caterina falls in love with a soldier in the
warlord’s army, she knows what they have will be a short and bitter
thing. A girl who is Death cannot love; a boy who is a soldier in this
war is fated to die. – I mean… WHOOPS! Am I right?
Exhibit C: Myrna is one of the witch children, said to be cursed by the sky
demons with horrific powers. She’s capable of walking in the lightning
storms that ravage her desert home and can speak with the mythic sand
lions, but otherwise she has none of the powers witch children are said
to have. She is hated and cursed by her village and blamed for any wrong
that happens. Her only friend is a strange boy named Jem, born
during the same storm season as Myrna but not cursed with her powers to
walk in the lightning.When they are fourteen raiders come to
their village and Jem is fatally wounded in the attack. Desperate, Myrna
takes him to the sand lions for help.
