Get Your Gun, Dragonfly

A sack of stolen guavas.

A death drive jammed in reverse.

Two brainfucked trans women, an American genocide, and a body to love.

Get Your Gun, Dragonfly is an interactive, semipoetical, cyberpunk love story drenched in wounded hope. It’s about forgiveness, disability, monstrosity, violence, the place called America, and what it means to choose to live.

This excerpt from the acknowledgments passage is important enough that I’m reproducing it here for those who are unable to finish the story:

Get Your Gun, Dragonfly is barely fiction. Right now in America, undocumented immigrants and their children are being kept in concentration camps and subjected to sexual violence, dehumanization, and murder. If you have ever wondered what you would have done if you had been alive as the Holocaust began, you need not wonder any longer. It’s what you’re doing now, and it’s whatever you do tomorrow and each day after that. It can happen again, it can happen here, and we have to stop it before it’s too late.

Volunteer for a local immigrant justice group or donate to a remote one (I recommend RAICES), campaign to elect representatives with pro-immigrant track records, and do whatever else is necessary to prevent the next genocide and make a good world.

Find your friends. Hold them tight. And get to work.
