Ooooohhh, nice play on ye olde chosen one-trope as well!
She. Is. Amazing.
I don't know many authors that blow my mind on a regular basis but she certainly is one (and N. K. Jemisin another ^__^).
I think you can still buy her newest #shortstory collection but she also has a few stories online from Lightspeed etc:
So take this with a truckload of salt since it's one woke white dude recommending another woke white dude but:
(So far) Max Gladstone's „Empress of Forever“ is a pretty awesome #sff ride: #Lesbian Asian-American main char, galactic civilisations, the cloud(tm) as a means of transport, a sinister answer to the fermi-paradox … if you're interested in #astronomy and #scifi this one might be for you.
it's been clear for 500 years now that environmental justice isn't going to come without full-scale decolonization
which requires white environmentalists do more than reinvent the wheel of neoliberal action as a means of centering their concerns and empire
if anything that's the biggest "we told you so moment"
moreso than the pithy political farts of white veganism

If you want to make a softer, kinder, and better world, your best bet is to start be treating yourself softly, with kindness, and as well as you can.
It can be so easy for us to dismiss our own needs, to tear ourselves apart, and to treat ourselves far worse than we would dream of treating (practically) anyone else... but uhhh if you're working to hold up others? You are going to need a strong foundation.
That foundation is going to have to be you friend. Be fuckin nice to you.

I'd like to take a moment of your timeline to ask folks to use CamelCase in your tags. I didn't know until I came to masto that this helps people who use screen readers parse them as words rather than jumbles of characters. When there are multiple words mashed together in a tag, try capitalising each one, for instance #CommissionMe #CallForArt #LookingForArtist
Illustration & graphic design. Also social justice, intersectional feminism & anitfa. Edinburgh, Scotland & Lübeck, Germany. He/his. ^ _ ^
