Femslash February Challenge: Day 24

Day 24 of female-centered stories with canon wlws!

Namesake by Megan Lavey-Heaton and Isabelle Melançon


Length: One long webcomics. Currently at chapter 32, chapter have easily 30 pages, often more.

Happy ending or not? Not finished yet! I hope!

Who is the wlw? Lots of female characters, but it doesn't always play a role in the plot, and the actual f/f romance is :

Alice and Selva (a visitor in Wonderland, and a descendant of the Wizard from Oz).
Alice also have a female ex among the villains, Bird.

Ozma/Dorothy is very much implied too, and you can ship extra things!

Is there other representation? Emma, the main character, and her sister Elaine are Latinas, the cast is racially diverse in general.

Warnings? Some trauma, mind control and fantasy body horror.

What about the plot? It starts where Emma, a normal woman, finds herself in Oz. Here everyone finds very normal she can travel through worlds, but very weird she isn't names Dorothy like the others. She starts trying to get home with what she remembers of the story, but tile has passed...
There are actually a huge organization of people who can travel in other worlds, if they have the right first name. But even them don't know what Emma is...

How good it is? I love it! The worldbuilding is impressive, we take time to learn things but there are hints from the beginning. The characters are sympathetic, and the art is very nice. Cette entrée a été crosspostée au https://flo-nelja.dreamwidth.org/691267.html. Commentez où vous voulez.
