Post-Apocalyptic Lesbians

Post-Apocalyptic Lesbians

I have an odd relationship with post-apoc settings. I love the general idea, the concept of post-apoc, but often find the execution to be lacking. For every Mad Max, there’s at least one Aftermath or New Gladiators. Some nice ideas in the lower budget movies, sure, but the obvious issue is the ‘lower budget’. By nice, I do of course mean awful, because… you know, post-apoc.

Similarly, for every Fallout: New Vegas (one of my top 5 games of all time), you have… well, something like Fallout 76, which completely misses the point of the franchise it’s aping off, exactly as Fallout 3 and 4 both did as well (I don’t like Bethesda, if it wasn’t clear).

But more than anything else, post-apoc sits in a weird place for me, where I love the idea of it, but very rarely enjoy the stories set in it. Fallout is… or rather, was one of my favourite franchises because it got post-apoc right. Yes, it was brutal. Yes, it was dark and hopeless in a lot of ways. And yes, most of humanity had been wiped out, and those who were left were largely kind of crappy.

Despite this, it also has some really dark humour, and some of the best back story and lore in any franchise I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading, watching, or playing. And a great story, and dated but still serviceable gameplay with great faction and reputation dynamics that Bethesda can’t seem to wrap their collective heads around. It’s a great franchise, is what I’m saying.

So why am I talking about post-apoc all of a sudden? Because it’s a setting I’d like to see different types of story set in. Unfortunately, this presents a problem, as The Closer Look eloquently mentions in his video on The Predator: “when it comes to combining different genres, you can get away with almost anything.”

Key word: almost.

Combining genres is fun, and something I enjoy doing a great deal. My own Aida, for example, is a combo of sci-fi and idols, plus lesfic erotic romance. It works well, if I say so myself (shameless plug).

Sci-fi and fantasy combine nicely, too, with settings where fantasy is being superseded by tech, or where an ancient tech-based civilisation was overtaken by a fantasy one, or whatever. The likes of Skies of Arcadia, Final Fantasy, and plenty of other stories love to dabble with this (including me… which you might get some details on in a later post, nudge-nudge, wink-wink).

Likewise, horror can combine with sci-fi, or fantasy, or post-apoc, or almost anything. Again… almost. Putting horror with comedy can work, and really damn well in some cases. The Evil Dead franchise says hi, especially the second movie. Arguably the third movie veers more towards comedy than anything, but it still has those horror elements.

So what about post-apoc? What can we put that with? Sci-fi? Absolutely, and this is probably the most common combo. Fantasy? Yep. Comedy? As mentioned above, Fallout has some great dark humour moments. Romance? Difficult, but eminently possible, and can produce some truly tragic stories.

Slice of life? Ah, now we’re getting into the tricky ones, and the whole point of this post. If you’ve read much of my work, especially Aida, you’ll know that I love slice of life; Aida is a light-hearted and humorous story where it’s all about character interaction and naughty scenes, albeit tempered by serious drama and conflict as well.

But post-apoc is, by its very nature, dark and gritty and real. How would you even put the sort of light and fluffy slice of life I love into a setting like that? Seems almost impossible, right? Well… maybe not entirely. There is one good example I can think of, a little manga called Vampire After the Doomsday. And the best thing? It’s not just slice of life and post-apoc… it’s also girl love 😀

Check it out here, it’s only a short 5 part work for now, though a (slowly) ongoing one.

So as it turns out, yes, it is actually possible to do post-apoc slice of life. Who’d have thought? It’s certainly not easy and the above work has a supernatural element in the vampires, allowing for a unique setting, and I can’t really imagine it being especially lucrative as a genre to tackle if you’re looking to actually earn money.

But as something a bit different in two opposing genres I enjoy? Yeah… it might be something to look into trying one day. What do you think?

Do You Read Visual Novels?

A Kiss for the Petals

A long, long time ago I read my first ever visual novel. I think it was around 2007, maybe? Alas, my memory isn’t what it used to be. But I remember the visual novel itself, it was a drama-heavy high school romance called Yume Miru Kusuri.

It was your standard ‘boy meets several cute girls, ends up with one of them’ story Japan very much likes to tell in this particular medium, but I enjoyed it well enough. It wasn’t until much later that I finally found a few good examples of Japanese yuri (百合, lit. ‘lily’, the Japanese term for lesbian fiction/media) visual novels.

In keeping with the Japanese obsession with high school stories, most of these yuri visual novels were, of course, in that particular setting, and I loved that. These stories give a window into a world I never got to experience personally, a totally different kind of school life to the one I had (protip: it wasn’t fun).

Remember I mentioned the Persona games in a recent post? One of my favourite aspects of those games is the social simulator, where you have to go to school every day, attend classes, learn (and take exams!), and attend to your personal life outside of school in addition to the dungeon crawling and main story.

Similar to those games, yuri visual novels scratched that particular itch, for a world and a place I’ll never get to experience myself, similar to my love of urban fantasy; I’d give anything to be the MC in a Persona game, despite the great personal risk involved.

But more than that, they also gave me a way to vicariously live a cute girl’s life as she discovers herself and falls in love for the first time. You only get to experience that once in your life, that precious first time, and it’s not always as perfect as it can be in fiction, so getting to live it through visual novels or other mediums is a pure joy for me.

With that said, allow me to share a link to 10 great visual novels you should totally check out if you have the time and inclination for something a bit different to the standard western fare:

Top 10 English Yuri Games

(Highly recommend you avoid looking at the comments for the article. Just trust me on that.)

The Masks We Wear

The Masks We Wear

Have you ever played the Persona series of games? If not, I’d highly recommend checking them out. Persona 4 The Golden is an excellent starting point, but if you don’t have a Playstation Vita (which wouldn’t be surprising, considering how quickly that console died), you could start with Persona 5 on PS3 or PS4.

Why am I suddenly recommending you Japanese RPGs? Simple, because one of the things I adore about the series in question is its exploration of—what else?—personae, the different metaphorical masks people wear. As a series, it delves heavily into Jungian psychology, including the titular persona, but also the concept of the shadow, which are literally the enemies you fight in the games, and the collective conscious, which make up the dungeons you have to fight your way through to progress.

Getting into the specifics here would take multiple posts and a whole lot of digital ink, so instead I’ll simply link you to some further reading if the subject interests you:

https://www.verywellmind.com/what-are-jungs-4-major-archetypes-2795439

The games love to play around with the various concepts Jung put forward. Kanji, a character in Persona 4, for example is confused about his sexuality because he’s a masculine and aggressive young man… but also loves sewing/arts & crafts, and is attracted to an outwardly male character. He’s effectively a personification and exploration of the animus/anima concept (see the article I linked).

Likewise, the concept of one’s true self is heavily tied to that same game. In fact, it’s the game’s thesis statement, its primary theme. The main title theme music is even called Pursuing My True Self, and the characters each have to overcome their own shadow in order to find—and, more importantly, embrace—their true selves. Failure to do so = death.

Similarly, the other archetypes (listed at the end of that article) are explored in depth, with ‘the trickster’ being one of the main themes in Persona 5. The game’s main character represents this archetype, and the game explores themes of social alienation and stigma, and more firmly delves into the concept of collective consciousness.

So why am I telling you all of this? Good question! And one with a simple answer: because quite apart from my own interest in this stuff, I’m planning a work of my own that will explore similar themes, and I wanted to share 🙂

Specifically, I love the idea of the collective consciousness. With that in mind, I decided to develop a setting similar in general tone to the Persona games, where I can explore similar themes. Though in deference to my love of lesfic/yuri, the main character is a girl… and that’s all I’m saying on the subject for now ;p

The setting will be a fictional coastal city, though I’m still deciding where to place it, possibly on a fictional island in the Pacific. In addition, there’ll be an island academy just off the coast of the city itself, where the world’s best and brightest attend.

Thematically, I want to explore the concept of saving face and keeping up appearances in society. Everything in this academy revolves around social standing. No weakness can be shown, and any possible scandals are swept under the rug and kept secret as much as possible by everyone involved. Towing the line is another way to look at it, with social consequences for not doing so.

Our main character is a Japanese girl called Ichigo who manages to get into the academy not through social positioning, as most others are, but through simple hard work and top-of-her-school grades. As someone coming in from the outside, she’s free from the shackles of keeping up appearances and will be uniquely placed to help the other main characters with their various problems.

Of course we’re talking urban fantasy again here, with supernatural components and a literal collective consciousness the characters will have to dive into and explore. But more than that, I love the idea of another concept related to this: collective effervescence, the idea of a society or group coming together unconsciously to perform the same idea or action.

Naturally, there’s nefarious goings-on at the academy that our heroes will uncover and have to fight against, but rather than being direct physical threats—though those will also exist—it’ll be heavily focused on winning hearts and minds, too, in both literal and metaphorical senses.

Like all authors, I have way too many ideas and never enough time to write them all. But since the Persona games are some of my favourites experiences ever, especially 4 and 5, both of which are in my top 5 games of all time, this story sits right at the top of my list of ‘things I absolutely must write before I die’.

Thanks for reading!

Is Conflict Essential to a Story?

Most writers will tell you that conflict is essential to a story. Some would even go so far as to say a story can’t exist without conflict. And sure, depending on the medium involved, conflict is pretty crucial to a story. But is it essential to a story? Short answer: nope. The longer answer is a bit more involved.

There are several major exceptions to this rule. The most prominent examples I can think of would be humour and slice of life. In both instances, something else takes the place of conflict. For humour it’s the concept of set up and pay off, using jokes and crazy situations to propel the story. And for slice of life it’s having stellar characters the reader will fall in love with and simply enjoy watching or reading about in fairly normal (and occasionally fantastical) situations.

Often the above two categories of story will coincide, of course. Slice of life thrives on ordinary situations made humorous by putting a new slant on them. Something like GJ-bu is a great example of this. Likewise, Aria’s various seasons are all heavily focused on what we in the business like to call ‘cute girls doing cute things’, and is what you might call a healing show.

But Freia, those are both anime, you say? Indeed they are! So how does this work with, let’s say, a book? Can slice of life work in something as tightly written as a novel? Where every word counts and there’s no room for fluff? Why, yes, yes it can. I point you towards my own Aida series as Exhibit A, which is a combination not only of lesbian romance, but also slice of life and humour/shenanigans.

There is some conflict in Book 2 onwards as the main characters start settling into their lives and going for auditions, in some cases against each other, but at the heart of the story? It’s slice of life, through and through. Humour and great characters can effectively replace conflict in a story, to put it simply.

So is conflict essential to a story? The short answer was no. The longer answer is also no, but while it’s true that a story doesn’t always need conflict, it does need direction. Even a slice of life story has a direction, with each episode focusing on a specific circumstance or series of events, and a novel is no different.

Each book in the Aida saga focuses heavily on one group of meticulously crafted characters (excuse me while I blow my own trumpet), and follows them through a specific set of events with well-defined arcs and acts, which don’t necessarily follow the traditional structure (acts 1-3, rising and falling action, etc., though they do always have appropriate denouement).

Times change and new genres emerge, or old ones are tweaked for modern audiences. In Ye Olden Greek Times, a lot of stories ended with an intervention from God (which is where we get the term Deus Ex Machina from), but modern stories are considered extremely negatively if you pull a stunt like that. Likewise, the popular belief that ‘all stories require conflict’ isn’t necessarily true any more either.

Moonlight Becomes Her – A Dark Lesbian Vampire Romance PREVIEW

Three Centuries. Two Outcasts. One Love.

After two years on the beat, twenty year old PC Sally Holden transfers to Bath Police Force’s CID—the Criminal Investigations Department. But when she arrives, all she finds is hostility, corruption, and a general sense that she is very much not welcome.

Her first assignment soon comes in: investigating a low priority assault case no one else can be bothered with at a local Catholic Girls School, St. Hallowfell’s. The victim has unusual puncture wounds and remembers virtually nothing about her attacker, just a vague sense of serenity, almost like being back in the womb… or in a trance.

Transferring into the school as a grounds person in order to keep an eye on things, Sally must discover what really happened and who is responsible for the attacks. But during the course of her investigation, she will also have to come to terms with the realisation that the world isn’t quite as clear-cut as she thought it was…

Update: Moonlight Becomes Her is now available! Either for 99p, or for free if you have Kindle Unlimited.

Enjoyed the preview? Great! You can pre-order the full book on Amazon right now for the princely sum of 99p (or regional equivalent)! Releasing October 31st.

Lesbian Sci-fi Novel Series – Aida: An Idol Romance

Are you a fan of cute FxF relationships? Possibly you’re looking for a developed sci-fi setting where cute girls can get up to cute things? Do you like slice of life with minimal conflict? Perhaps you enjoy some of the softer fetishes such as an interest in feminine scents and collecting panties? If you answered yes to one or all of those, have I got good news for you! Because I just so happen to have a setting exactly like that. What are the odds, right? Astronomical! But here we are. Say hello to my Lesbian Sci-fi Novel Series – Aida: An Idol Romance.

Lesbian Sci-fi Novel Series - Aida: An Idol Romance

My Lesbian Sci-fi Novel Series – Aida: An Idol Romance is a sci-fi-themed story about 18-20 year old girls becoming Japanese-style pop idols. It’s filled with cuteness, quirky characters, fun fetishes, some saucy sexy times, and maybe—here and there—some emotional gut punches. Because brief bouts of drama work best when you least expect it 😉

This series is planned to be roughly 25 novellas (each ~40k words), with our girls growing and changing and developing through the whole thing, and of course new characters and stories introduced regularly. If you enjoy longer works you can really sink your teeth into, I’ve got you covered.

The first three books are already up and available on Amazon, so maybe go check ‘em out. They’re also in Kindle Unlimited, so if you have a subscription you can read immediately for free! Lastly, Book 4 is up for pre-order and releases a week today (3rd August). I hope you enjoy, if you decide to give this story a try 🙂

One final thing: some of my works have harder content like futa, where the focus is on the sexy stuff. This is NOT one of those, Aida is pure FxF and focuses on cute (and sexy!) situations with major story arcs being the primary focus.

(Note: all links below will take you to your regional Amazon store)

 

Dreaming of the Stars, Volume 1 of Aida:

Some stars last forever.

It is the year 2176 and idols—multi-talented individuals devoted to being inspirational role models—reign supreme in the world of entertainment.

When Isla Ainsworth’s best friend Anise Kendall suggested they try out for planet Aida’s prestigious Dreamstar Academy for Idols, Isla thought herself wholly incapable of such a lofty goal. But despite her reservations, she agreed to give it a try. Transferring from their home on Mars, Isla will learn what it means to be an idol, and along the way perhaps also discover new and intimate aspects to herself.

As the two rookie idols settle into their new lives on Aida, entertainment capital of the stars, they meet new friends and mentors Lisa Lawson and Mira Ananta Sundaram. Isla is initially unsure of her direction, but with some help from Mira she begins forging a path forward. Anise, meanwhile, struggles with secret feelings for her best friend…

 

Starlet Sunrise, Volume 2 of Aida:

Living. Learning. Loving.

Having settled into their new lives on planet Aida, Isla Ainsworth and Anise Kendall begin the next leg of their journeys as idols.

Isla meets an energetic and bubbly girl called Millie Bright during a hard but enjoyable camp for rookie idols, becoming firm friends. While there, they get acquainted with gothic model Evangeline le Fay. Together, the three girls help each other through the gruelling camp while sparks of something beyond friendship come to the surface for two of them…

While Isla is being run ragged at her camp, Lisa Lawson takes Anise on a weekend trip to the neighbouring city of Slogh to meet some new contacts. Enjoying some time at Slogh’s annual flower parade, they hook up with Lisa’s other best friend, a high class lady from the lush colony world of Gran Manillo.

 

New Horizons, Volume 3 of Aida:

New activities. New rivals. New horizons.

At the height of Aidan summer, Evangeline le Fay meets Anise for the first time, fast becoming good friends with her. With Anise’s important modelling audition coming up soon, Evangeline—an accomplished model herself—helps her new friend with her walking practice while Millie Bright, looking for ways to make herself stand out from the crowd, enters an audition for a new stellarvision show where she meets a new rival.

Meanwhile, Mira organises for the four girls to observe the academy’s top model, Yana Anisimova, at a fashion event hosted aboard a cruise ship. And Isla finally resolves to challenge the academy’s top idol, Cassiopeia Luna, to a return tennis match…

 

Broken Heights, Volume 4 of Aida (Pre-order):

Life isn’t always rainbows and ice cream.

After her win, Isla now prepares to train hard alongside Luna in readiness for Dreamstar Academy’s biannual tennis tournament, resolving to do her best and make her partner proud. But first, she has a dance audition to enter, where she finds herself with some unexpected competition…

Eva, meanwhile, decides that the four of them—Isla, Anise, Millie, and herself—deserve a little time to themselves in reward for their hard work and recent successes. Arranging a night out at Mira’s family restaurant, this leads her to some new realisations as to her relationship with a certain bubbly girl.

Lesbian Lift Liaisons – A Sci-fi Novelette PREVIEW

Do you like sci-fi settings where pretty much anything is possible? Lesfic and a spot of futa romance? Well, this might be the book for you if you answered yes to those. This is just one of many books (and series) I’m writing in this sci-fi setting, and if you sign up to my Reader List you’ll also get the first chapter—exclusive to readers on my list—from one of those other works as thanks. Anyway, hope you enjoy this brief preview, and if you’d like to grab it, just look to the sidebar.

Is it possible to reach heaven without leaving your body?

Mia:
I’ve always been told I’m plain, boring. And I guess I am. Being a scientific kind of girl, I decided that going to university was the best plan for my future. Maybe go from there to Titania’s Fleet Academy, learn to fly or maintain starships or something. But surely there’s more to life than just a solid career?

Secretly, I’ve always wanted a girlfriend, someone reassuringly confident I can feel at ease around. And maybe… a special someone who ticks a certain special box as far as special equipment goes… but I’m probably just being fanciful, huh?

Karen:
I seem to attract a certain type of girl. The type who’s just after sex, sex, and more sex. And sure, I like some action as much as the next girl, but really… is a proper relationship with someone that much to ask? I’ve been told I’m prickly, cold… and I suppose that attracts the wrong sort of girl. But maybe, one day I might find that one special girl?

Hah, who am I kidding? I’m probably destined for a life of one-nighters and relationships where my reputation between the sheets is more important than my personality.

Told from the perspective of both Mia and Karen in an alternating first-person style, Lesbian Lift Liaisons takes place in the Year 3000, when humanity has colonised vast swathes of the galaxy and technology has advanced to such a degree that it might as well be magic. But this story focuses a grand setting down to that of two girls looking for love in a huge galaxy where almost anything is possible.

After finding jobs at a small café opposite one of the city’s many beautiful parks, Yuri worries about their future and her ability to support them while Futaba attends a night school, and two new girls complicate their relationship…

What are readers saying about it?

Truly magnificent and smooth flowing book. Joan just couldn’t come to grips that she is a lesbian. Scarlett is out an proud. This is a true second chance romance that was a long time in the making. Both ladies are most endearing and real.” – The old one!

I did enjoy this book, but one of the characters really out did herself with the self loathing and denial. It can be hard to come out as gay or lesbian even in this day and age, especially in small towns. I really enjoyed the main character who returned home. I hope there will be a part 2 so we can see how well the one character does at coming out. Give this book a try. Thank you to the author.” – Kat

What are readers saying about it?

I absolutely loved reading this. Knowing I had this book to read made my days and now iv finished it I’m heartbroken.. I seriously didn’t want it to end. I loved everything about the book and felt myself daydreaming whilst reading it, dreaming about the Cornish coast, idyllic little village and walks on the cliffs. Well done Clare and Harper, I hope this won’t be the last time you co-write together.” – faye82

This book should be available on prescription. It could improve anyone’s bad day. Better than gin and much better than any medicine.

What are readers saying about it?

Probably the best book I’ve read in some time. I absolutely loved this slow burn romance. Angst by the bucket load…just what I love. It really was a super story with two brilliant lead characters. Going to read this author’s novella now, even though I never read short stories. I look forward to the next lengthy book. Please buy…you won’t be disappointed;)” – Chumsky

After reading the reviews I thought I would give this author a chance. I wasn’t disappointed. Both leading ladies are strong, career minded and sassy to boot. Loved the interactions between both characters and warmed to both of them from the outset. The premise of the story of how the two ladies get together may not be original, but this didn’t stop me from throughly enjoying the story. Highly recommend this story and I can’t wait to read future books by this author.” – Knightsfield

#7

What are readers saying about it?

Once again Miranda Macleod gives us exactly what we want……….. A good romance story with lovely characters and beautiful surroundings. A perfect summer read.” – Tam

#8

What are readers saying about it?

I’ve read this author’s other two books and really enjoyed them, so I had high hopes for this one. I’m happy to say that this was just as fantastic as her other works! Now my only question is: when is her next book coming out?!” – Ash Phile

Really good read. Well written, good dialogue, two attractive women, hot sex, set in Australia ski resort and Colorado, USA. One is a former champion ski racer who lives life of a ski bum, giving lessons around the world, as she deals with the after effects of career ending injury. The other is a physical therapist on vacation who was gaslighted by an ex, and has avoided relationships to protect her young daughter from any potential family turmoil. Thoroughly enjoyable, compelling characters. Look forward to the author’s next book.” – Monona

#9

What are readers saying about it?

Another 10 stars for Emma Nichols—oops, only 5 stars are allowed! This book grabbed me from the first page. The story just flows so effortlessly and the characters seem so very real! Nikki was portrayed perfectly as was Ariana. Their love will touch anyone’s heart. Not only the love between those two ladies but also from the secondary friends and relatives.” – The old one!

‘Ariana is the must read book of the summer! This is the eagerly awaited fifth Lesfic novel by Emma Nichols which tells two beautiful love stories set in a gorgeous location. The book is about love, family, loyalty and hope. From the first few pages this book grabbed my attention and I was hooked, I couldn’t put it down. It’s very rare that I pick up a book and as soon as I finish it I want to read it again!” – Oscarfrog

#10

What are readers saying about it?

Clare Ashton is one of the few authors where I’m willing to lose sleep… I tell myself I will just read one more chapter, when in reality I know I will read at least a dozen. Clare never fails to disappoint and once again she has delivered. I’m not going to write a synopsis of the story as I think I wouldn’t do it justice. Clare manages to draw in her readers from the first paragraph, with engaging characters, descriptive settings and clever dialogue.” – Knightsfield

After reading Clare Ashton’s previous novels I new the Goodman’s was going to be a great read and wow I was completely immersed into the Goodman’s within minutes! I never thought I would read anything better than Poppy Jenkins but then along came the Goodman’s, as entertaining as poppy Jenkins but with the extra pleasure of having two wonderful romances in one story! This story has it all, Romance, angst, humour, strong female characters and some lovely sensual sexy time. Well done Clare Ashton this was another corker!” – Gill

Paying Down Her Debt – Futa Favours Vol. 1 PREVIEW

Do you enjoy lesbian fiction? Perhaps you also like a spot of futa? If you answered yes to these questions, have I got good news for you. I’m Freia, and I specialise in delicious futanari stories, generally with a cute and/or sweet tone.

But why take my word for it? Much better to see for yourself my relaxed and playful writing style, right? So have yourself a free preview of the first book in a four book series called Futa Favours, a couple of chapters to whet the appetite:

Just one little mistake can change a life.

Kirishima Futaba had expected her first day at Tokyo U to go pretty much like any other day. But when she’s asked to deliver some papers to the Student Council president, Aikawa Yuri, she finds herself in a sticky situation involving an expensive broken vase—a present destined for Yuri’s mother—and a debt she has no hope of paying. At least through regular means.

So begins Futaba’s journey to repaying her debt to the enigmatic and playful Yuri, a girl who turns out to have an unusual secret…
