Know what I love about gay fanfiction?
It’s the only place where being gay is normal. It’s the only place I’ve ever seen a girl flirt with another girl only seconds after meeting one another. Where gay people aren’t terrified of being seen as predators or as gross. Being gay… it’s normal.
And that’s something I dream of and that’s why I love fandom. That’s why I love ships and fanfiction.
Because it’s an escape from a world that at best thinks I’m a joke, and at worst is disgusted and afraid of me.
So, thanks fanfiction. For allowing me to be me.
