Femslash February Challenge: Day 26

Day 26 of female-centered stories with canon wlws!

The Owl House by Dana Terrace


Length: For now, only one season of 19 24-minutes episode. There will be more.

Happy ending or not? Not finished yet, but it looks like it.

Who is the wlw? By season 1, canon only says Amity, Luz' rival at witch school, has a crush on her, but the author has confirmed Luz was bi and it could become the canon romance.

Is there other representation? Luz is latina, her best friends at witch school are Gus, who is black, and Willow, who is asian and fat.

Warnings? Nothing big, it's a kid cartoon. The authoritarian violence, the body horror and the bullying are not written on an overtly dark and desperate way. They're still here.

What about the plot? Luz is a girl from our world who likes fantasy books a bit too much. Her mother wants her to go to a summer camp to relearn about reality. But instead she passes a portal and finds herself in a real fantasy universe.
Luz becomes the apprentice of Eda Clawthorne, the "Owl Witch", notorious con artist with a good heart (sometimes). She also really wants to go to magic school, because there's one, even if she has no magical powers.

How good it is? I find it absolutely charming. At the beginning, I wasn't sure where it was going, between the magic school tropes and the Eda plot, sometimes a bit lost between first and second degree too, but finally, it mixes well!
