I’ve finally typed up my thoughts on Seven Surrenders. A necessary caveat: I really did enjoy the book; in fact, I couldn’t put it down. The notes I’ve made are mostly negative because the parts work don’t jump out at me nearly as much as the parts that don’t. At some point I get into my General Theory Of Weaknesses In SFF That Wants To Be Political Philosophy (a genre which, to be clear, I love completely and without irony). Spoilers follow.
me: haha roman is so weird like?? can u not. i can’t handle the cringe why is he like that people in the hg tag: he’s the worst character how can you like him he’s a bad person and has no good qualities me:
i love how taako designs vary so much but are still immediately revognizable. like i could see a fat elf with a lacy parasol and two inch long eyeliner looking like he shops exclusively at macy’s, and then i could see a lanky green rowdy boy with a haphazardly cobbled together outfit who looked like he just crawled out of a swamp, and i’d still go ‘yeah thats a good taako’ either way
