- I'm really happy to see [community profile] 50books_poc active again. I used to get tons of recs from it and am looking forward to it broadening my reading again.


- be yourself my ally A Wonder Woman fic featuring Etta/Diana. Pretending to be lovers is such a fun trope and it's deftly applied to a great pairing here. Themyscira was my favorite part of the movie so it made me happy to see it explored a bit here. I love how the author fleshed out Etta - her down-to-earthness, her warmth, her pragmatism and her ability to enjoy the little things. And I really appreciate how she portraits her as a queer lady who has had relationships with other queer ladies and who knows her worth.


- The Superhusbands Aluminum Anniversary Anthology is out! If you're into Steve/Tony at all, go check it out. It contains nearly 600 pages of new fanfic and fanart and is available for download for free.

-Si yo hubiese---Tagliafico no lo deja terminar la oración, lo agarra de la cintura y lo mete en el vestuario, antes que el resto, por primera vez desde que tiene la cinta descuidandolos a todos y poniéndolo a él antes. Le agarra la cabeza y apoya su frente contra la de Campaña.

-Si tengo que elegir, me quedo todas las veces con el penal contra ateltico. Todas las veces Martín.

-¿Todas?

-Todas.

Y Taglia no sabe que hacer después pero escucha el murmullo de cabezas que se acercan y de enojos, reproches y broncas que tiene que calmar. Lo suelta a Martín, pero no deja de mirarlo.

What I’ve Just Finished Reading

The Paper Menagerie by Ken Liu
It's available for free online here. A really affecting story. What made it for me where the small details, like the water buffalo wanting to wallow and jumping into the soy sauce.

What I’m Reading Now

The Lost World by Arthur Conan Doyle
I really like Doyle's Sherlock Holmes stories, so I picked this up at a book flea market. I'm not very far in yet. I'm currently at the point where professor Challenger invites the protagonist back into his house after having bodily thrown him out a moment before. He's certainly a memorable character. I loved the interaction with his wife.

What I Plan to Read Next

Probably This Census-Taker by China Mieville since it needs to go back to the library soon.
