200% sure I wrote shitty fanfiction for this series when I was like 13. 500% sure i later destroyed it and removed all traces.
it turns out my camp sent my second paycheck to my parents for some reason, and my parents thought it was just like paystub/receipt stuff...
of slash fic
where one of them or both of them are each others’ Single Solitary Exception to Years of Uncomplicated Heterosexuality
moreso in mslash, but i’ve seen it in femmeslash, too
i realize that in some cases (with rly repressed characters or in fics set in time periods that were much less accepting of homosexuality) it does make more sense, and that for some people, that’s their really-truly-honest-to-god lived experience, and i wouldn’t want to take their narratives away from them
our really-truly-honest-to-god lived experience is an easy, unabashed bisexuality that we’ve known about since at least our teens or early twenties, and even if we’ve never had the chance to do anything physical with someone of the same sex, we have at least acknowledged our capability for attraction to people of multiple genders. we would like to see our narratives too, and since mainstream media doesn’t seem inclined to give it to us, it would be nice if we could find it in the fandoms we have come to cherish.
