that booktok girl was the only one who was stupid enough to say it out loud, but so many people (especially straight white girls) fetishize red white & royal blue because they find the main (male) characters attractive that it's creepy, and nobody really ever talks about it
booktok having conversations about lesbophobia as a result of that video: good. booktok continuing to be lesbophobic, even by allies attempting to support: not good (this applies to the whole book community btw it's just tikok doing it rn)
rip william herondale u would’ve loved gaining fame on booktok for being sexy and liking to read
I hope Ruby Dixon has a lot of fun diving into her stack of cash from TikTok sales like Scrooge McDuck. Like, no sarcasm, I am GIDDY over the response to her series. And also very curious where Booktok will go next. It's been wild riding these waves.
