The world of Waiting on a Bright Moon is half-formed, but it is also a short story and you kinda are able to fill in the blanks. Basically, Tian is an ansible working at one of the Empire's eight colonies to form instant portals using her voice, and her connection with another ansible from her cluster living at the heart of the Empire. The story places an emphasis on music as being a bond between people, and in the Empire, lesbians are 'punished' by being forced to become ansibles, since the connection is strengthened by bonds, including sexual ones. Tian's romances, first with her clustermate, and later on with the starmage at her colony are enveloped by a bond of song overall. Also, the author draws on Chinese culture (one of the songs is an actual real one) for the music as well as little details, and presents a beautiful story about love and rebellion.
The ending is left on a heart-breaking note, but with a hint of hope. I would actually love to read a full-fledged story of the world created in this story, as well as what would happen ahead
It was melancholic, it was pretty, it was thrilling, it was glorious, it was even horribly gory. I really liked the idea of this world. Here is the great example, when 41 pages long story and you need nothing to be added. It was almost perfect, if not one problem. I don’t get why Yang felt any need to write the story in second person. It is not lyrical, it is annoying! I am not you character; I don’t want to be her. Don’t impose your story on me. Yes, I got used to it, but it hugely lessened my experience from the story.
