“I am genderfluid/leaning to male and want to experience pregnancy. I will however put off any surgery and hormones until after I give birth[…] It has similarities with being transgender. It is lovely to see any kind of representation in a positive light and to be “normalized.” I love that I can escape to this fantasy land where males can give birth because I hate that I have to put off being my true gender if I want to have a child.” -Missy

I really don’t know what to say, it was ok I was able to read it in its entirety however at 70% I started skimming. Something was missing, I really can’t explain the lackingness (made up word) I felt reading this book. I didn’t hate it however I didn’t love it either.

Something was… off. Tony couldn’t really say what it was but something just didn’t seem right, aside from all the Alien God, Magic, Voodoo, crater thing. “Run a full diagnostic” What’s he looking for? He should really be calling for back up, but something was odd and his curiosity got the better of him. “Compare his current magic readings with S.H.I.E.L.D.’s database and our own.” Did he want to alert SHIELD of Loki’s reappearance? Why wouldn’t he? “Do it subtly, gotta check a few things before the Angry Pirate gets his hook on him”

I love the way this author writes. I love their style, and I love their characterisation. They have an absolute gift for writing Stiles especially in this quirky way that feels more canon than canon, like it’s what Stiles should be if the show wasn’t so hampered and trapped by stupid bullshit like being written by a bunch of apes at typewriters under instructions from network executives who think viewers just want more love triangles. be honest, if I were you I’d just run straight to AO3 and read everything this author’s ever written, and then find their Tumblr and read the stuff there too. You will not regret it.

Ultra fave.
