hello, my lovelies ♡
          	
          	may is asian pacific islander heritage month, and wattpad has decided to feature Trinkets on the official reading list highlighting API month! 
          	
          	i'm still baffled that this book that i started out of my own bitterness over how few wlw stories were around back then (with desi rep being even rarer. almost nonexistent) has got so much love in the past 4 years. this is crazy. thank you so much for everything. i appreciate y'all more than anything. 
          	
          	about me going AWOL (again), it's because i'm moving houses again this may. house hunting in this heat took a Lot out of me + work has been relentless. i didn't want to half-ass any of my updates so i just let it be for a bit. being an adult is such a weird mix of fulfilling and exhausting.
          	
          	you'll start seeing me around a lot more once i manage to settle in properly! i'm super excited to show you guys what i've been working on these past couple weeks :D 
          	
          	thank you again! wp is shutting down dms as a feature soon, but if you guys want to reach out to me, you can post on my wall or add me on discord! i really like talking to y'all and if you feel the same, my username is @/auroplane!

Hi Auro! I just wanted to tell you that I absolutely love Where The Skies Are Blue! The way you describe the friendship between the characters is so so beautiful and heartwarming and how you inculde the random but interesting space facts is really cool. It makes your characters feel like they're real and I wish I could be friends with them. :)
          This story brought back my fascination for the universe and I'm really happy about that. Do you have a favourite planet, star or constellation?
          I think your stories and writing style are just amazing and I really hope you can continue writing!^^
          I wish you all the best,
          Ivy

@auronautic actually, i couldn’t decide between neptune, uranus and saturn at first. but the bluish colour of neptune is just so pretty and i also love the fact that it sometimes rains diamond crystals on there. so that’s why i chose it in the end. :)

@rose_icewind i'm glad it made you smile! 
            
            i understand the favorite song/album thing so well lol i don't think i'm very good at picking Anything at all. food, music, movies, shows... there's just so much out there
            
            and is there a special reason why neptune? have a nice day as well ♡

@auronautic Hi! I’m sorry it took me so long to answer you back, but unfortunately, I couldn’t find the time to do so. Don’t worry, I had that problem a few times too. 
            Thank you so so much for your kind respond!<3 It brought a smile to my face while I reading it and brightened my day up a lot. I’m really happy to hear that you’re continuing to write it! :D
            I can totally relate to that. It’s the same for me, especially when it comes to choosing a favourite song or an album from an artist I like. I’d say Neptune is my favourite planet. 
            I wish you a nice day! ^^

@ninaaarias ive also been reading 'hit rewind' by violadavis! it's not so much focused on romance or whatever but it's still wlw rep with magical realism. it's one of my favorite things to read in the world rn!

i turned 24 today :') 
          
          my entire life, i was reminded over and over that i would probably never get here. i still wake up achy in every single one of my bones and some days still get so dull that i can't bring myself to get out of bed, but it's still a bit of a miracle that i am alive.
          
          i am fighting still.
          
          i am writing still.
          
          and if you're seeing this, you've contributed to the good side of my life in one way or the other, so thank you. 
          
          i hope we get to share stories for a very long time <3

@auronautic this feels so late compared to everyone else but happy birthday!!! i hope you’re day is going well!! thank you so much for writing books that make me feel something, and specifically thank you so much for writing books with desi queer characters because i don’t know how i would define my sexuality or anything but i find a lot if comfort in reading the stories of happy queer indian people and seeing them thrive, and also just reading the comments and seeing you and your friends is so comforting!! thank you so much for writing and i hope 24 is good to you!!!
