literature streams are for an extremely niche audience. i'll try not to pester, but it'll be super helpful if people can help spread the word 🙏

last night on a very special episode of 𝕘𝕒𝕪 𝕔𝕣𝕚𝕞𝕖𝕤 𝓫𝓸𝓸𝓴 𝓬𝓵𝓾𝓫 we touched on beauty, justice, and the power of believing in yourself. ostensibly it's about the genderqueer silkpunk novella The Black Tides of Heaven by JY Neon Yang, but tbh it's kind of a lot 🌊

Show thread

@red i am absolutely watching this shit tonight, i am completely a trash goblin off camera 😂

@triz i thought it'd be fun to open the stream by putting on face, and as with many things in my life, i had a blast pretending to know what i was talking about 😇

@red oh no! I hope Life Stuff manages to resolve itself in the best way that is possible.

(I am selfishly glad that I'm not missing today as my phone call with my mom made me miss the first part and I knew I had to leave early for e-date. But I would have preferred that you didn't have to deal with whatever is causing you to change your schedule.)
