"Once upon a time, an egg hatched. But instead of being a bird, it was a Pettyartist. The birds got mad at her, but then she was saved by a wizard. They then flew off into Hogwarts where Pettyartist was raised as a Ravenclaw (since she was almost a bird) until she found her true calling was Hufflepuff. The end."
Can I just express my undying live for Tamora Pierce and the way she writes characters?
Seriously— If you guys ever EVER want to read a fiction series filled with POC in main and important roles, LGBTQ characters in main and important roles, POC LGBTQ characters in important roles and ESPECIALLY women in important roles— read ANY of het many series.
