This past weekend I:
1. Watched 12 episodes of SPN season 2 with @seedsofwinter (I love you, I’m so sorry, also not sorry) after he invited me down to do exactly that for 2 days.
2. Did a parlor room reading of the 4LW chapter with the FCC compliant sex scene to two friends who are not in the fandom as after dinner entertainment (I mentioned I was thinking of doing podfic as a hobby, they asked what podfic was, I explained and said I recorded this chapter for fun as my first foray and they were curious so I read it to them instead of playing the file). They loved the writing and my character voices, and wanted to find out what happens next so tune in next time as I read this very nsfw 194k+ phone sex fic to them in installments??? Again, let me repeat. They are not in the fandom. wtf is my life.
3. Then came home to read the last chapter of book 2 of DtA to Cabs and start on book 3. We got so into it we went 66% past our allotted time. Our initial plan for a two person book club-type read-along & discussion format changed to my reading and sharing selected highlights, and is now story time where I’m slowly reading it all the way through to her with pauses to point out repeated motifs or stopping to look at each other on Zoom as we process moments of either of them being painfully oblivious or all-consumingy in love without knowing it ( "Did you know you can get used to someone breathing and miss it?") (Joe walks in as Cas pauses to consider Dean’s “delicate heterosexual sensibilities” - "My what?" - while Dean’s sitting in Cas’ lap on the floor just having a conversation while surrounded by stoned militia members). This bespoke live podfic experience for one is her sole means of learning what happens next in the story, so it’s a mirror for Cas reading Dean his translated Egyptian hippo porn. Oh, the slow burn fake dating 1.2+ million word Scheherazade of it all.
That’s two readings in one night where I used my Cas voice for a not insubstantial amount of time so all my love and gratitude to J for giving me the echinacea tea, and to all my real life friends, the above half of whom have been pulled into being at least SPN fandom adjacent, and willingly spent part of their own wild and precious lives doing this with me.

Have you ever made/eaten a rainbow cake?
I have! They’re lots of mess, but so much fun to make!
Y’all I have been stuck on pride art ideas for WEEKS, trying to figure out how I wanted to do food-themed pride art or pride art in general, and now I have had 2 straight days of inspiration!! But get ready for a 🏳️🌈GAY AF🏳️🌈 month cause the juices are flowing now 🤔

hey exclusionists: fuck you. ace and aro people are not cringey or infantile or whatever the hell else you think we are.
due to your bullshit i tried to force myself into romantic situations that made me uncomfortable to ‘fix’ myself because i didn’t feel safe in the lgbtq+ community. due to y’all i tried to convince myself i was allosexual just traumatised or broken or wrong in some way. (newsflash, i was not.)
i used to know so so much about ace culture until you came along and i repressed it and hid it and projected my trauma onto other people and became extremely aphobic.
you say ‘ace people are valid’ but consistently treat us like shit. we’re here, we’re queer, get used to it.
let us enjoy our dragons, space, and cake, and whatever the fuck else we have.
you say we don’t need the lgbt community because we already have our own, but you destroyed our community. you destroyed our community and mocked out terms and took away what we had.
you made satire accounts so you could bully ‘tumblr aces’ who don’t even exist, they’re just your satire accounts made to make fun of us.
so fuck you. keep your bullshit to yourself, aces don’t want to hear it.
-sincerely, a pissed off ace of spades who is absolutely done with your shit.
