The Truthspoken Heir: The Stars and Green Magics 1

Content notes: I balance the heavy with the triumphant. Long live self-care! ❤ Please read with your own in mind.

This note covers the book The Truthspoken Heir, and episodes 1-36 of The Stars and Green Magics, as well as three extra beginning episodes.

Triumphant themes below are mildly spoilery.

Prominent heavier themes: diagnosis, treatment, and living with chronic illness; self-destructive behavior, including some that walks the line of self-harm; burnout/depression; marginalization/oppression/exploitation of a specific group (magic users in this case); societal othering of an alien race they don’t understand.

Prominent triumphant themes: gaining self-ness and kicking ass with a chronic illness that will not be cured, because this is absolutely not a cure narrative; rulers learning self-care instead of bucking up and bowing to external pressures; societies and rulers working toward social change; people working to understand other people who are very, very different from them.

Secondary heavier themes: gender dysphoria (though not in a gender-restrictive society), body dysmorphia (mandatory/necessary shapeshifting, though within similar genders), overbearing parents.

Secondary triumphant themes: a society where gender and sexual diversity is fully normalized (though, truly, this is probably THE primary overarching bit of badassery); overcoming what’s expected of you and making that shit your own.

Romantic relationships are slow-burn, low-heat. This serial is purposely crafted to be ace/aego friendly, and I prioritize emotion and sensuality in romantic scenes over sexuality. There are no sex scenes in this season, though there are occasional sex scenes in later seasons. Sex scenes are fade to black or quickly summarized.

Violence levels are typically PG-13. There is a scene involving police (royal guard) brutality toward a perceived member of a marginalized group, the worst of which is offscreen.

There are occasional bursts of strong language.

I’m always, always seeking to squash internal bias in my work. If you’re comfortable reaching out, please contact me with any sensitivity concerns. I want to make my work as inclusive and enjoyable as possible!

Much love, all. ❤


The Shadow Rule: The Stars and Green Magics 2

Content notes: I balance the heavy with the triumphant. Long live self-care! ❤ Please read with your own in mind.

This note covers the book The Shadow Rule, and episodes 37-93 of The Stars and Green Magics. This season is, overall, darker than the first season, but still a hard PG-13 overall, balancing light with dark, glittering beauty with societal ugliness, and overall focusing on telling a story worth telling about people I care about. I’ve repeated the themes crossing over from the first season, and added other prominent themes here as well.

Themes below are spoilery, though I’ve done my best to be vague about the details.

Prominent heavier themes: diagnosis, on-page treatment, and living with chronic illness; self-destructive behavior, including some that walks the line of self-harm; negative self talk as a detrimental and self-destructive magic (this is a prominent plot point); burnout/depression, as well as themes around mental health and maintaining sense of self (shapeshifters, amiright?); marginalization/oppression/exploitation of a specific group (magic users in this case), including violent treatment of a member of this group (light physical abuse and coercion); capture with intent to torture (onscreen, but mostly psychological—more below); societal othering of an alien race they don’t understand.

Prominent triumphant themes: gaining self-ness and kicking ass with a chronic illness that will not be cured, because this is absolutely not a cure narrative; rulers learning self-care instead of bucking up and bowing to external pressures; love and acceptance and kindness in even the hardest circumstances; societies and rulers working toward social change; people who help each other and don’t give up, including the kindness of strangers; people working to understand other people who are very, very different from them.

Secondary heavier themes: gender dysphoria (though not in a gender-restrictive society), body dysmorphia (mandatory/necessary shapeshifting, though within similar genders), overbearing parents.

Secondary triumphant themes: a society where gender and sexual diversity is fully normalized (though, truly, this is probably THE primary overarching bit of badassery); overcoming what’s expected of you and making that shit your own.

Romantic relationships are slow-burn, low-heat. At least one relationship is platonic and features ace characters. This serial is purposely crafted to be ace/aego friendly, and I prioritize emotion and sensuality in romantic scenes over sexuality. Sex scenes are fade to black or quickly summarized. There is one prominent sex scene in this season.

Violence levels are typically PG-13, low or no-gore, but focusing on the emotions. Beyond what’s stated above, there is some offscreen, after-the-fact violence to animals (cattle) in one scene. From above, there are a few scenes showing unkind or physically or verbally abusive treatment of a member of a marginalized group (magickers). I’m sensitive to this myself; I’ve toned these down as much as possible in the context of the story. There is a scene of physical violence and proposed torture; the torture is not carried out. There is a chase scene specifically chasing members of a marginalized group by police and citizens. There is a scene of brief, violent deaths.

There are occasional bursts of strong language.

A Bid to Rule: The Stars and Green Magics 3

Content notes: I balance the heavy with the triumphant. Long live self-care! ❤ Please read with your own in mind.

Themes below are spoilery, though I’ve done my best to be vague about the details.

Prominent heavier themes: death of a parent (or both, in this case) and related grief, parental emotional neglect, domestic violence (offscreen, non-SA) as well as ongoing emotional abuse among family (more alluded to than shown)

Prominent triumphant themes: characters working through their grief and leaning on each other and friends to heal, finding ways to overcome the systems you've been raised to, finding freedom from abuse (non-SA)

Secondary heavier themes: gender dysphoria (though not in a gender-restrictive society), body dysmorphia (mandatory/necessary shapeshifting, though within similar genders); marginalization/oppression/exploitation of a specific group (magic users in this case)

Secondary triumphant themes: a society where gender and sexual diversity is fully normalized (though, truly, this is probably THE primary overarching bit of badassery); societies and rulers working toward social change.

There is no romance or sex in this serial, though there are brief mentions of sex and several slightly uncomfortable (for the characters) pretenses of romance (for spy stuff). The main character is aro, and the person he attaches to is ace.

Violence levels are typically PG-13. The most violence happens in several onscreen violent and emotionally charged but non-explicit deaths, as well as several attempts on characters' lives. There are guns involved throughout the story (palace guards). There is a scene of violent illness. There is mention of domestic violence (non-SA) and ongoing allusions to emotional abuse, as well as a brief allusion to SA as a thing that happens (but not actually in this book). 

There are occasional bursts of strong language.

Court of Magickers: The Stars and Green Magics 4

Content notes: I balance the heavy with the triumphant. Long live self-care! ❤ Please read with your own in mind.

This note covers the book Court of Magickers as well as episodes 94-150 of the serial The Stars and Green Magics.

Themes below are spoilery, though I’ve done my best to be vague about the details.

Prominent heavier themes: diagnosis, on-page treatment, and living with chronic illness; self-destructive behavior, including some that walks the line of self-harm; negative self talk as a detrimental and self-destructive magic; burnout/depression, as well as themes around mental health and maintaining sense of self (shapeshifters, amiright?); marginalization/oppression/exploitation of a specific group (magic users in this case), including off-screen accounts of violent treatment of members of this group and physical marking/branding; societal othering of an alien race they don’t understand; violent semi-graphic physical assault (non-SA); family emotional abuse dynamics; emotional coercion (from bad guys); mentions of and the fallout from offscreen torture; characters dealing with causing deaths

Prominent triumphant themes: gaining self-ness and kicking ass with a chronic illness that will not be cured, because this is absolutely not a cure narrative; rulers learning self-care instead of bucking up and bowing to external pressures; love and acceptance and kindness in even the hardest circumstances; societies and rulers working toward social change; people who help each other and don’t give up; people working to understand other people who are very, very different from them

Secondary heavier themes: gender dysphoria (though not in a gender-restrictive society), body dysmorphia (mandatory/necessary shapeshifting, though within similar genders), going on HRT and also being denied trans care (because of bad guys, for non-transphobic reasons), overbearing parents, angst around identity and names (though not in a gender context)

Secondary triumphant themes: a society where gender and sexual diversity is fully normalized (though, truly, this is probably THE primary overarching bit of badassery); overcoming what’s expected of you and making that shit your own; finding out who you truly are and embracing all facets of yourself.

Romantic relationships are slow-burn, low-heat. At least one relationship is platonic and features ace characters. This book is purposely crafted to be ace/aego friendly, and I prioritize emotion and sensuality in romantic scenes over sexuality. There are no sex scenes in this book.

Violence levels are typically PG-13, low or no-gore, but focusing on the emotions. There is off-screen recounting of violent events from Season 2. There is an almost-death of a character from magics. There is a violent assault on a main character--this scene is semi-graphic, but not gory. 

There are occasional bursts of strong language.

The Throne of Eleven

Content notes: I balance the heavy with the triumphant. Long live self-care! ❤ Please read with your own in mind.

This note is spoilery, though I’ve tried not to go into story specifics.

Prominent heavier themes: eugenics in a fantasy setting (this is portrayed as bad); war and all the ugly stuff that can come with it (this is offscreen and mostly backdrop).

Prominent triumphant themes: defiance in the face of overwhelming power; peace and equality for everyone as a driving and worthy goal.

Secondary heavier themes: body dysphoria (though not in a gender-restrictive society), body dysmorphia (from genetic manipulation, though within similar genders); spouse ostracizing a character after a major life change (though not for gender reasons); name feels.

Secondary triumphant themes: a society where gender and sexual diversity is fully embraced and normalized (whoo!); finding new love, new family, and a new way forward; finding new selfness and purpose even through hardship.

This story does not have a happy ending so much as a defiant ending that’s relatively settled for now.

Sex levels are PG-13. There are some secondary themes of romance in this serial, with a few very summarized/non-graphic sex or sensual scenes. There is breakup angst.

Violence levels are PG-13. One scene uses the word “rape” to describe a pillaging army. No violence is seen onscreen.

As this serial is already written, this note should be complete. This note currently covers 13 episodes.

Magnificent

Content note: This story is raw and hits on a lot of raw issues, including homophobia, transphobia, bullying, gender dysphoria, depression, and suicidal ideation. It also includes learning self-worth, coming into your own, acceptance by those you love, acceptance of yourself, finding your power, and soaring above all you've been through. It does indeed have a happy, triumphant ending. Please read with discretion, love, and self-care.


Good King Lyr

This book is a trans/nonbinary romance, and it's important to me as a trans/nonbinary person to let the characters have frank conversations around gender and transgender issues, including denial and dysphoria. These are issues I've so seldom seen talked about in the books I've read, and I've so needed to see. I've written with my own great care in mind, approaching this book how I'd want to read it. But if these are triggers for you, please read with self-care in mind. ❤ Because it's a romance, there are mild sexual situations. And because I'm me, there's the occasional swears. I'd give it an edgy PG-13.


The Space Roads: Volume One

I wrote The Space Roads to be PG to PG-13 at most. Most episodes revolve around something fun or sense of wonder. Some episodes stray into horror, but it’s more psychological. There’s so sex and little violence. Strong language is minimal. One episode deals with grief in a way that brings healing. There is some mild xenophobia depicted towards aliens, and the consequences of that. Overall, these are pretty gentle.
