Afternoon Snack

Happy Monday, my POMEs! This week’s afternoon snack is here to get you pumped, to fire you up, and to get you through that slow Monday afternoon.


Haven is a sci-fi game that has intense Going Steady vibes — you play as a couple, in a long-term relationship, exploring a human-free planet together. As at least half of the POME editorial team is currently trapped in Fire Emblem: Three Houses hell, this game seems MADE for us.


This long read about one Instagram influencers ghostwriter and their toxic friendship is a real trip, a crazy ride through the earliest days of the influencer era we still find ourselves in and a deeply personal look at the relationship between two women.


Autostraddle gives us a list of 8 trans fantasy novels — novels featuring trans characters and by trans authors! The definition of “fantasy” here is broad, which makes the list more varied and more likely to find a genre that strikes any one person’s interests.


lol we’re sweating


For our DnD compatriots out there, a thoughtful article with helpful advice on being a DM!


The Seamwork Tacara as made by queer sewist Shannon! Love to see queer folks out here making their own clothes on their own terms.


The best possible Instagram account has surfaced!! Now we can all more easily fantasize about our dreams of 1) buying an old house, 2) exorcising the malevolent spirits that will inevitably be haunting it, and 3) renovating it in a respectful but modern way!!


In another “Throw Money at this Kickstarter”, go throw money at Unfamiliar Skies: Zodiac Poetry & Illustration! Love a riso print project with gold foil 👌


Lucy Knisley is all of us during the last few hours of a comics show.

Pomegranate Magazine

POMEmag is the internet’s premier pastel, macabre feminist dork publication. Or at least, a very pastel, macabre feminist dork publication that is leaning into that identity pretty hard.
