Tundras, Travellers, and Other Travesties is a beautiful, soft, and bittersweet story that ends on a note of hope. The setting of a frozen earth is vivid and wonderfully described, and you get a real sense of the desolation of the scenery.
The story is told from the point of view of Eis, who I found myself relating to and sympathising with from page one. Ze is non binary and lives with chronic pain while trying to maintain an outpost for travellers. Zir gender and experience with chronic pain

So much love for this solarpunk science fiction short.

Tundras, Travelers, and Other Travesties by Amara Lynn is a solarpunk science fiction short story that’s packed with plenty of worldbuilding, emotion, and hope.

Eis is a nonbinary agender protagonist living in solitude on a tundra after zir parents pass away. Everything changes when a mysterious traveler, a captivating man named Ignis, crash lands into one of the solar panels that powers Eis’s home.

What follows is a sweet and enchanting story

The story is short, like, reeeally short, but I'll try not to spoil too much.
Basically the main character, Eis, lives in a truly cold environment, in which it's winter all the time, and the setting is a dystopian one; kind of.
Ignis, a mysterious traveler, appears all of a sudden and Eis is shocked because ze never saw someone else before, besides zir parents.
And yep, I'm using ze/zir because this little story uses gender-neutral pronouns and that's super nice. I hope I used them correctly,

This short story was really sweet, and had an interesting concept!

The thing is, short stories need to be really well crafted for me to connect with the characters and their relationships, and too often, it's just too short for that to truly happen. This one kind of felt like this. I loved the concept and setting and idea and the unapologetic queerness, but it was just way too short and quick for me to truly love Eis and Ignis.

I still really loved the concept, the moose, the chronic pain, and
