Tiana Hearts is an American author and playwright based in California, originally from Washington. Tiana grew up watching and reading about superheroes and has always had a fascination with them. Upon playing a few sessions of Girl By Moonlight, Tiana knew she had to write a story based on the wonderful characters and interesting world the campaign had created. Tiana has many influences, the first of which is the rules and mechanics of Andrew Gillis’ Girl By Moonlight roleplaying game, which is the whole reason this exists. Another major influence is that of Wildbow, John C. McCrae, who wrote the web serial worm, which inspired Tiana to write in a similar format. Tiana was also heavily inspired by the book Dreadnought, and it's sequel, Sovereign, writen by April Daniels, as they are excellent examples of queer fiction. Tiana was also inspired by various superhero shows and movies she saw during her childhood, such as the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Teen Titans and Code Lyoko television series and the Marvel Ultimate Alliance video game series. Magical Girl may seem to be an odd genre choice for someone who grew up on western animation and stories, but Tiana enjoys the format and story telling devices that are only really available in this type of the story. It is quite simply an awesome format for queer storytelling. Almost all of the main characters in the story are queer in someway and that’s absolutely crucial to the story Tiana wants to tell.

Want an prologue or epilogue written from the perspective of a certain background character? Donating at this tier gives you a one-time request for a character getting their own prologue/epilogue chapter. (The main cast will all have their own, no need to request them)
Wow. Thank you.
