A Week in Asexual Characters – Adèle

You might have noticed that so far, I’ve talked a lot about non-spectrum rep. I do have Larryn who is gray-ace, but since this is not canon within the text yet, I kept it for a later day. I did start out writing asexual characters that experienced no attraction, as this is closer to me, […]

A Week in Asexual Characters – Nevian

And here’s Day 2! This time we move on to Nevian and some discussions of his storylines and how his aceness fits into this. There is some very mild spoilers for City of Betrayal so if you like to keep very spoiler-free, maybe wait before you read? But I did keep it vague. 🙂 Nevian […]

A Week in Asexual Characters – Henry Schmitt

Asexual Awareness Week is here! I don’t usually do much during this time, but I’ve decided to spend the week talking about my ace characters and what it’s been like, writing them! I’m partway through writing the series and it’s very interesting to look back and discover how my process and priorities have evolved. I […]

Alexis le Trotteur – The Legend, the Real Man, the Retelling

Time to talk about one of my favourite thing in the world: Québec folklore!! At the end of this month, Circuits & Slippers comes out. It’s an anthology of science-fiction fairy tales retellings, and I have a short story in it! But because you cannot say “fairy tale” without me hearing “local legend”, mine is absolutely […]
