I'm not feeling it. Which is annoying, because it has many good ingredients and interesting threads. But it's just not giving me feels or making me have favourites yet.

And it has many cool female characters with interesting plot even. Some of them even talk to each other. So I'd like to like it better.

Mostly it's inspiring in me a feeling of wanting to turn it around and maybe shake it to see why I'm not into it. Like, this should be working. Maybe it's me.




I get this sinking feeling that what I think I want from stories isn't in fact what I want. Because the shows that grab me and take up residence are not often the ones that fit the recipe I've figured.

Although queer f&sf is a very good start.



Shall see.

Today's dreams started with me having teleport powers if I stepped between to another dimension. Because I'd bonded with a dragon and could therefore use their powers. But I was cranky about that because me and my dream husband both had gold queen dragons, so I with the younger dragon had to move to a new city to start a new weyr. We could visit, because teleport, but we couldn't just build a life together, because dragons are cranky and territorial.

And then I got to the St Louis of Defiance and met Nolan the ex military Lawkeeper, who had a Bronze dragon.

And then I got very cranky because would having a conversation first be too much to ask? Gold be too eager. Now there were eggs.

Alien invasion arriving and finding magic is a very GURPS setup. Volge vs Dragons would go a bit interesting. But tech blows things up on such a larger scale than magic tends to, because it tends to unbalance the dungeon crawl if the wizard can go nuclear.

Still, if resources the size of a country could focus magic, probably they'd get some really big booms.

And forcefields are always handy.



McCaffrey thinks her worlds are SF because the gems and dragons are not magic, they're perfectly respectable psi powers and so forth.

I say go forth and mix it up, because sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from science, if it has a consistent ruleset behind it.

And if it doesn't it's probably all quantum and infinite improbabilities.





Being awake is so much more boring.

Dragons and magic gems and even redecorating with nice furniture be more interesting.
