"the water that falls on you from nowhere" by john chu — also gay. good job kids. This Pleases Me. 

protag of “selkie stories are for losers” is a server, points to samatar so far. hopefully also Gay. 

eta: heck yea gay 

thegreatgodum said: lol @ the review thing. like. andre norton not only published with an ambiguous pseudonym but also neatly split her work between Boy SF (spaceships, interstellar trade, outlaws, soldiers riding dinosaurs) and Girl SF (witches, priestesses, castles, clarke's third law) like she's literally a case study in SF's issues all by herself.

yep yeah yep yes.  and so is (natch„„, ) tiptree, bc of the split b/t when ppl thought she was a man and afterwards (which is proof btdubs that editors DO pay attention to gender of the author, cause like, silverberg used to pub her all the time and then after 76/77 NOPE). 

or like c.l. moore, who reviewers in there namedrop too, who co-wrote shit w/ her husband too (so like, where stories written by henry kuttner end and c.l. moore’s begin is hard to define?) and they joint published some under a male pseudonym and her pen name is also ambiguous. 

SCIENCE FICTION! 

gdi my sister and her boyfriend moved all the stuff that was in the car of mine still from when me and dad moved everything out of my apt while i was at work and i started crying bc they put all my clothes on the kitchen table and i was just so overwhelmed, i started crying like, hysterically, in front of the boyfriend i feel so bad he didn’t ask for this . i mean i apologized and stuff. and when we pulled up and i saw it was in the garage i swore and mom got mad at me for that and i think she’s mad at me now for being so Emotional or whatever im just like, i left stuff in the car and now its in the garage did anything get fucked up bc of that? did i ruin things w/ the heat? w/ bugs and shit? what did i ruin, what did i break, im lazy for leaving those things there. jordan has to take one of my bookshelves to lawrence bc she’s moving apts and i dont know. shes too cheap to get her own? so im out a bookshelf tho it was the one i found by the dumpster and its a small one but thats still like Upsetting to me but it seems so unreasonable to say no, u cant have that. im just, mad at myself bc i know i upset everyone and im tired and i have to go back to work tonight and this has just derailed me and i dont want to do anything w anything the end sorry. 

I haven’t read all the Hugos stuff and I have to work tonight. Do you think it’s bad to vote for things on general Principle
