The Aromantic and Asexual Speculative Fiction Database
Always looking for more fiction featuring asexual and aromantic spectrum characters? Big fan of fantasy and science fiction? Yah, me too!
Enough that I got tired of looking at lists (and finding the same 5-10 over and over) and made a database!
No, even better, I made one with FILTERS.
This mean you can filter out entries according to your current cravings. Looking for homoromantic aces only? Filter the “Romantic orientation” column!
Desperate for an allosexual aromantic character, whose orientation is featured On Page, but you’d like a nonbinary character on top of that? Hit the aromantic database tab, filter “Type of rep”, “Sexual orientation” and “gender” and see what’s left!
Instructions and definitions of everything are on the first tab of the database, so you can click on this link to check it out right now!
A few notes:
1. There’s a lot already, but it’s far from complete. If you are an author with ace or aro spec characters, contact me! I have forms to fill so I can add you in.
2. I cannot guarantee the quality or the safety of every story. I ask authors to give me content warnings, both specifically for their rep and for the story, but not all of this was filled by them, and there’s always a chance of forgetting. If you think warnings need to be added to a line, don’t hesitate to tell me!
3. Webcomics, poetry, and other forms of fiction aren’t in there. Maybe one day. It’d be cool!
4. There’s a lot of #ownvoices stuff in there but I forgot to mark it. :/ I will eventually! Until then, if you want only those, hit me up and I can give a few pointers. :)
…being best friends with Baylee Wright — since she was twelve — would be the best and worst decision of my life. Now I’ve signed back on
to the same Vegas acrobatic show as Baylee, working together for the
first time in years. And she tells me that she’s having trouble in a
certain “area” of her life — because of our past. “You can help me fix it,” she says. And then she hands me a list.
Come the end of year three, two rooms will have opened up in the Haus. Lardo offers her dibs to Dex, Ransom and Holster offer the attic to Nursey.
Thing is, though, Nursey and Dex just assumed they’d be offered the attic together. They figured it’d be just one of those things. Inevitable, even though they dreaded it a little bit too. They knew they’d be living together. Just, neither had thought it would be in separate rooms.
Nursey has a list on his phone of things to buy over the summer. A new desk, a nicer sound system, lamps. Dex’s been trying to figure out how to avoid Nursey finding out he’s secretly terrified of the top bunk.
They both avoid addressing how it feels like a disappointment. Because they’re finally getting what they worked so hard for. Dex helped Bitty with the cooking, he did dishes, he cleaned the tub after a kegster…and it’s all paying off, but he can’t help but frown a little when Lardo ruffles his hair and tells him he’s earned it.
Ransom and Holster reveal the attic to Nursey with a gift in the middle of the room: a queen bed. He finds it difficult to be enthusiastic, knowing that yeah, Dex will be sleeping directly under him, but not close as he had so frequently imagined.
Nursey and Dex think of how often Ransom and Holster casually mentioned sleeping together on the bottom bunk. They think of how comfortable the two were with each other. The way they kind of…were together…or not? But it didn’t matter, because they just…were the two of them? And they were happy. And now Nursey and Dex are scared they’ll never get to that point.
