“The Deep” by Rivers Solomon
Description: Yetu holds the memories for her people—water-dwelling descendants of pregnant African slave women thrown overboard by slave owners—who live idyllic lives in the deep. Their past, too traumatic to be remembered regularly, is forgotten by everyone, save one—the historian. This demanding role has been bestowed on Yetu. Yetu remembers for everyone, and the memories, painful and wonderful, traumatic and terrible and miraculous, are destroying her. And so, she flees to the surface, escaping the memories, the expectations, and the responsibilities—and discovers a world her people left behind long ago. Yetu will learn more than she ever expected to about her own past—and about the future of her people. If they are all to survive, they’ll need to reclaim the memories, reclaim their identity—and own who they really are.

“Dread Nation” by Justina Ireland
Description: Jane McKeene was born two days before the dead began to walk the battlefields of Gettysburg and Chancellorsville—derailing the War Between the States and changing America forever. In this new nation, safety for all depends on the work of a few, and laws like the Native and Negro Reeducation Act require certain children attend combat schools to learn to put down the dead. But there are also opportunities—and Jane is studying to become an Attendant, trained in both weaponry and etiquette to protect the well-to-do. It’s a chance for a better life for Negro girls like Jane. After all, not even being the daughter of a wealthy white Southern woman could save her from society’s expectations. But that’s not a life Jane wants. Almost finished with her education at Miss Preston’s School of Combat in Baltimore, Jane is set on returning to her Kentucky home and doesn’t pay much mind to the politics of the eastern cities, with their talk of returning America to the glory of its days before the dead rose. But when families around Baltimore County begin to go missing, Jane is caught in the middle of a conspiracy, one that finds her in a desperate fight for her life against some powerful enemies. And the restless dead, it would seem, are the least of her problems.

i get creating adverse circumstances for your characters but also you’re gonna have to work real hard to convince me that every person under the sun hates your main character for one reason or another. like real aggro shit. like it’s a fantasy world with magic and shit but my suspension of disbelief is tested the most by everyone being so fucking rude
I know I have exclusively dumb takes but I cannot stop myself. It sparks joy to watch kids shows and point out the fucked up shit they gloss over. Or, alternatively, the found family dynamics.
Thinking about Grim starting to trust Yasujin afther the kids shows geniune concern for his state, instead of his own makes me happy.

Pussy eating- BeelxMc
A drawn out moan sounds through the twins bedroom. It all started as a half hearted joke when she came into the room, climbed up on a very confused Beel’s face and sat down while saying in a sing-songy voice, “Here is your meal, Beel.”
She expected him to be shy and blush at her antics, never did she guess he would actually take up her offer, grab her tighs to keep her from escaping and start mouthing at her clothed sex with a low moan.
Now here she was, panties pushed aside, soaking his face with her juices as he made a mess of her with his tongue. Hands pressed into Mc’s thighs, the warmth and sting from them a welcomed sensation as he refuses to let her move, not letting her get relief from anything but his tongue. His tongue drawing tight circles around her clit, hungry eyes peeking up at her as he gorges on her juices. Eyes closing in satisfaction as he takes in the taste and smell of her. He lets out a hum as he opens his mouth wide to suck up all of her juices, the action causes Mc to throw back her head to let out a whimper with curse.
“Please, Beel,” Mc pleads, legs shaking, mouth dropped, hands gripping his hair tightly. She is so close to being pushed over the edge, so close to release, and yet it isn’t enough.
A chuckle comes from below her, mirth shining in his eyes as he looks up at her, “Sorry, Mc, you just taste and smell so good. I could stay down here forever, never getting full, but feeling so satisfied, “He replies before taking a swipe at her soaking sex and pulling a shutter and another wine from her lips as he takes her engorged clit into his lips and sucking harshly.
Beel takes a couple more laps at Mc’s sex, before closing his eyes, diving in deeper and feasting on her wet and throbbing cunt, soft praises tumbling from his lips about how good she taste, making her cletch at the action. A gasp comes from her lips as she feels him insert one of his large fingers, slowly working that spot inside her that sends jolts through her body as he continues drawing tight yet slow circles around her clit with his tongue, pulling and sucking on it occasionally.
Mc let's her head fall back as she leans back to give his fingers more access and a better angle. Her walls tighten around his finger when her eyes fall on his clothed cock, rock hard and slightly thrusting in rhythm with his fingers. A moan coming from below her that makes a warmth pool in her stomach and her walls flutter at the sight of him so hard and needy from just eating her out. Her mouth drops, feeling him insert another finger, before picking up the pace of his ministry, as well as matching his thrust as well. A desperation can be felt from him, the need for relief finally getting to him.
“B-Beel, oh f-fuck,” Mc mouth drops open with a scream, hands grasping and tugging his hair for purchase, her body becoming stiff from being thrown over the edge. Her organism hits her hard, walls squeezing his fingers tightly as she cums all over his fingers and face for Beel to lap up happily. Gazing into each other's eyes as gasp comes from her as she comes down from her high. The sight finally snaps any resolve he has as he grabs her waist and flips her over, setting between her legs and pulling down his shorts just enough to free his throbbing erection.
“I still haven’t had my fill of you just yet,” Beel growls as he presses her legs to her chest, “I hope you're ready for more, baby.”

me: if the ao3 authors i’m subscribed to don’t update their fics right now 🔪
also me: hasn’t written in weeks because i simply don’t want to
I'm thinking about something I can't seem to find a suitable resolution for, so if you have any piece of advice I'd gladly hear it.
My dilemma is around MC. I would have liked for their "set" name (that will absolutly be changable if you want) to be something around Guenevere but I'm struggling to find a more ungendered name that could still evoke Guenevere's character. The only ones I had in mind were Gwen, Gin or Guen but I don't really know how suitable they would be for a M/F/NB MC.
Ahh, I'm out of braincells, any idea?
Or maybe I'll simply gliss over the idea and let you write your own name of choice...
