A Week in Ace Characters – And A Few More Aces…

The last seven posts don’t quite cover all the ace rep I have written, and certainly not all I have in mind. I wanted to present a few more characters I have that will eventually make it into my stories, or that will have their rep made canon later down the line. I’m sure by […]

A Week in Asexual Characters – Brune

So by now I have written characters that feel naturally ace, characters that counter ace-related tropes, and a lot of smaller incidental ace characters that are fun and remind me I exist everywhere. But. What I have yet to do is properly reclaim some of the nastiest tropes. Or, well, it would be more accurate […]

A Week in Asexual Characters – Cal

Unlike Henry and Nevian, Cal is a character I decided to make aroace. Isandor has existed for a long time, and there were multiple instances of me stopping, looking at my cast, and considering how I could make it more diverse. What could I change? What would it affect and how would it ripple out? […]

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 […]

Gritty Stories, Humanizing Villains, and Narrative Consequences

For as long as I remember, I have loved villains. It’s not really a surprise. Main characters usually are pretty bland and have telegraphed romances, while villains have rich motives, a lot of drive, and are so often coded as queer (and heck, often more precisely as aromantic and asexual). I lived for Redemption Arcs […]

The Dive – An Exclusive Jaeger/Diel Isandor Short Story

It feels like these days, my blog is full of cool announcements. That’s good, it’s how I like it! So what is today’s? Simple: I have written a bonus short story to go along with City of Strife, featuring the two very gay elves at the heart of House Dathirii. More specifically, how they (Diel and […]
