Word Count: Incomplete, being updated.
Summary: Upon receiving help on a cello piece composition (by a total stranger who was passing by on the street and heard her struggle), Octavia follows said pony to a dance club, and gets extremely surprised when discovering the stranger was the widely known DJ Pon-3, Vinyl Scratch.
Octavia struggles when Vinyl invites her for a date: her past experiences have already been scarring, and Octavia isn’t sure she wants to explain what being demiromantic is to another pony, just to have them forcibly kissing her by the end of the day.
Fandom: Once Upon a Time
Pairing: Archie/Ruby (romantic) Ruby/Whale (sexual)
Summary: “She loves you. She talks about you a lot, you know.” Victor held out one of the oysters, his hand flat, the shell cradled in his palm.
Ruby and Archie are in love, but Archie’s asexual and she has a date with Whale. She wants Archie there too.
Author’s note: Archie is asexual panromantic. And the author is nervous. Please, my darling aces, let me know if I fucked up at all?
“I want you to come too, Arch. Please?” There were no secrets between them. The town could think what they liked, but Archie and Ruby trusted each other. They loved each other too, though it was not a love that most people understood. While Ruby would have done anything with Archie, the most that had happened was sleeping in the same bed. They shared secrets and touches and the occasional kiss, but Archie was content to stop there.
Asexual was a strange word to Ruby when she’d first heard it, but she read more than most people assumed and she thought she had a good grip on it. She didn’t love Archie any less, and never doubted that he loved her. Still, she craved something Archie wasn’t interested in. He’d tried to break up with her, feeling nobel, but she’d refused. She loved him. She loved sex too, but that didn’t have to be about the same issue.
Asexual Character: Bay Kennish (she also is somewhere between heteroromantic and aromantic in the fic, not sure which one, you could read her aro probably based on certain things I have her say)
Other characters featured: Emmett, Ty, and Regina, with a small side of Daphne in the background.
Ships: Bay/Emmett, Bay/Ty (and technically a little Daphne/Noah)
Rating: Teen & Up Audiences?
Warning: I discuss some sexual stuff but pretty much entirely with euphemisms. It’s… fairly tame but read with caution especially if any mentions of sex and/or graphic descriptions of kissing squick you out.
Summary: What if Bay was asexual? She deals with the challenges that being asexual brings as she dates both Ty and Emmett in the fic. (She doesn’t know she’s asexual yet at the start of the fic.)
Dedication: syrimoon, who reblogged my asexy fanvideo submission (a submission that included a few clips of Bay” manipped” to make Bay seem potentially asexual), and who commented: “BAY KENNISH FUCK YES”. ;) Thank you for your enthusiasm, and for helping to motivate me to settle on this fandom/character for my first asexuality-based fanfic. :P
Pairing: Rei/Nagisa; Rin/Haru (or, rather, Rin’s big gay crush)
Also features: Basically everyone
“Nagisa-kun, is this a date?”
With that one question, Rei is thrown into extensive research to discover what it means to be attracted to another, and where his own attraction lies. And, though reluctant, his friends try their best to help.
Written for Asexy April!
