Celebrating a Menstruation Scene in an Epic Fantasy (minor spoiler for Empire of Storms)

I just have to share this scene from Empire of Storms, and how cool it is to find a reference to menstruation in an epic fantasy that goes further than some Medieval-esque remark about a “first blood,” or “moon” or whatever and addresses the technicalities of questing with ovaries. Cause, you know, when you’re escaping terrifying fellbeasts with a dangerous, 500+ year old Fae warrior and trying to make it to your long lost queen to give her a weapon that will change the course of the war…you’ll more than likely get your period along the way. 

Do any period depictions in fantasy stand out to you? Please share!
