    Hi Kintsugi, I was here briefly in high school and have since completely forgotten my login info. I know the forum is less active these days, but with the big social media platforms getting worse every day, I wanted to try forum-ing again. I just moved to a new city for grad school (!) and making friends in a new place is hard. I've been missing my college queer community and don't know if it's possible to find anything like it again. What I miss most is being in a community where everyone having a trauma history is assumed as the default. So far my grad school class is...not that.
    I've drifted in and out of fandoms for years, right now I'm mostly into queer SFF books. I just finished A Desolation Called Peace and I'm about to start A Day of Fallen Knight (new prequel to Priory of the Orange Tree). Some other faves are the Locked Tomb series, Ann Leckie, Becky Chambers, and Martha Wells. If you have any recs based on that list please send them my way!

    seebs' mom Yes, really!

    Jesse Hajicek published a novel in that genre, some years back, called The God Eaters. Amazon has it. He's written a number of other novels, but I don't know whether they're available. Goodreads has a list.
