IT’S STILL OBSCURE FANDOM WEEK RIGHT
enough for me to barf stupid colors on a page and say it’s out of dedication to an amazing book.
Basically Flora Segunda by Ysabeau Wilce is an outstanding story about a very kind, brave, and slightly misguided 14-year-old girl who just wants to be like the character in a book she loves, but is constrained by the militant structure of her society (her mom is off being general, and her dad has serious PTSD, so she ends up staying home and being upgraded to Chief Home Caretaker Person).
Eventually she discovers the banished demon butler and is all “HEY, help me with the housework so I can be a Ranger!” and he, of course, being a demon, is all “Of course… with a price.”
Shenanigans ensue, she has a super flamboyant bff named Udo, her dad has a Crowning Moment of Retired Badass, there are vaguely Aztec-ish overlords, and it’s magnificently written, hysterical, and amazingly heartwarming. And this piece is kind of dreadful at conveying that.
I’ll do better next time.
