you know everyone always talks about how homestuck or jjba makes no sense but literally try to explain the plot to night vale to anyone and i can 10000% guarantee you that you will get stuck after you get past the general “it’s a podcast about a wacky midwestern town and its gay radio host that likes to over share” like seriously mention ANYTHING about the anti-strex rebellion, the faceless old woman who secretly lives in your home, the satan beagle puppy, or even the goddamn music weather and everyone will be looking at you like you’re one of the individuals named erika that MOST DEFINITELY are not angels, because the existence of angels is illegal
I, as a person who respects creative integrity and intellectual property, I am disgusted at how much you have copied me! You’re a laughing stock. It’s cheesy, it’s disgusting. I personally found it artistically atrocious! I am embarrassed to be sitting here in your presence having to even dignify you with an answer of my opinion.
I thought it would be a good idea to put together a list of lgbt+ fiction and stuff I have found. This list is far from complete and there are plenty more out there, these are just a few of some I enjoy. Feel free to add some of your own.
*Most of these are centered around gay guys. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find many lesbian centered works.
Welcome to Night Vale(podcast/book)
Imagine a town where every conspiracy theory is true. That's Night Vale. Radio host Cecil Palmer reports on the weird happenings in this small desert town and falls in love with a scientist named Carlos (and his perfect hair). There are five-headed dragons running for mayor, dogs that are literally Satan, mystic beings named Erika (who are definitely not angels), civilizations underneath bowling alleys, and so much more. There is a really diverse cast of characters and several lgbt+ characters (besides the main two). It has some horror elements but it’s more science fiction.
Yuri!!! On Ice(television show)
Japanese figure skater, Katsuki Yuri, comes in last place at the Grand Prix Final and returns home defeated. After a video uploaded of him skating to his idol Viktor Nikiforov’s (a Russian skater with 5 Grand Prix gold medals and considered to be the best out there) routine goes viral, Viktor himself shows up at Yuri’s place and becomes his coach. With Viktor’s help, Yuri attempts to win gold at the next Grand Prix Final and they both sort of fall in love along the way. Features a pretty diverse cast and doesn’t play into stereotypes. It’s considered to be in the sports genre but it has some romance moments in it.
Always Raining Here (webcomic)
Carter wants to get laid. Adrian is heartbroken. After Carter fails to get Adrian to have sex with him, the two end up becoming friends and have misadventures together. This is one of the cutest and most pure relationships I’ve seen (even though one of the very first things Carter says to Adrian is “We should bang”). There is some slight sexual content but nothing too major.
Check Please! (webcomic)
Eric Bittle joins the Samwell Men’s Hockey team but quickly realizes that this is way more intense than his Georgia hockey team and the team captain Jack Zimmermann isn’t making things any easier for him. There are lots of pies and you’ll end up learning about hockey. Lots of healthy relationships and does a wonderful job at portraying characters with mental illnesses. They’re also good friends with the Yuri!!! On Ice fandom.
Alice Isn’t Dead (podcast)
By the makers of Welcome to Night Vale, a woman becomes a truck driver in order to find her wife, Alice, who has been considered dead (she isn’t look at the title). She encounters a not-quite-human serial murder and ends up being chased by him wherever she goes. She learns more and more about her wife and finds out things better left unknown. Another wonderful portrayal of mental illnesses. It’s much darker and scarier than Welcome to Night Vale and I would not recommend listening to it at night.
Knight’s Errant (webcomic)
Wilfred is on a quest. However, being imprisoned in a city under siege puts a halt on their quest. Fortunately, they have a prison guard on their side. This one is different from the others since the main character so far isn’t in a relationship of any sorts (and doesn’t show to be in one anytime soon). There is a side relationship that will make your heart melt and Wilfrid is just a really likable character (they also don’t have a confirmed gender yet. It’s pretty likely they’re non-binary though). Also despite being set in a medieval European town it does feature some pocs which is nice.
Requiem of the Rose King (manga)
The previous ones have featured very healthy and loving relationships but this one is a bit different. It focuses on Richard the third of York who is intersex in this case. This causes some really messed up and really confusing love triangles. There is some incest (not very large at least for now) in it and large age differences so if that bothers you then I would advise against this. Despite all this Richard is in a pretty cute relationship but it’s pretty tragic at the same time. If you want happy gays stay away from this. Also features gore and violence.
19 Days (manga)
The adventures of Jian Yi and his best friend Zhan Xixi. This one is another cute one. Their relationship goes at a believable pace (but sometimes it feels like it’s taking forever) and there is a pair of very lovable side characters to go with it. Some sadness but nothing life ruining at this point.
Summary: These pranks are getting pretty out of hand… Enough said.
Pairing: Warren x Reader
Warnings: It might be intense fluff, it might be light smut… Who knows? Swearing, as always.
A/N: Currently super pissed off at tumblr right now. I had like 3 stories I was going to publish today and they all got deleted, so that was fun. If you guys have any alternatives to tumblr drafts could you message me bc I’m legit so lost… 😱 Sorry that this is super late. You guys should request for sure because this writer’s block is killing me. 😭 😭
“Shit!” You gasped as you felt the icy water soak through your clothes. In an instant, you felt another balloon explode against you, drenching you once more. “What the fuck?”
You wiped the water from your eyes, shivering against the wind. You had just come out of the mansion with Jubilee, heading to the pond for a nice, relaxing lunch with Jean, Scott, and Kurt. Instead, the moment you stepped outside, you were attacked.
You looked up to find Warren and Peter, perched in a tree with a bucket of water balloons. They hi-fived before Warren swooped down and Peter skidded to a stop at your left side with a cool gust of wind.

“Hey (Y/n)?” Sammy called from the door way. (Y/n) looked at him, Dean, and Castiel oddly. Dean was obviously hiding something behind his back, Sam looked like she would kill him, and Castiel avoided her gaze all together.
“What’s up, guys? How’d the hunt go? And where’d Gabe disappear to? I thought he said he was coming back with you guys…” Sam laughed nervously and wrung his hands. The girl could see Dean whispering to the thing he was hiding.
“Son of a bitch! That hurt you asshat!” Dean suddenly exclaimed, and a small boy, no older than four from what she could tell, ran behind her.
“Um, guys? Who’s this?” (Y/n) asked curiously, crouching to the child’s height. He had blond hair, pale skin, and whiskey colored eyes just like Gabriel’s. “Gabe?”
“Guilty.” The child responded with an adorable voice. The boys waited for her to yell at them, faint, get mad, but all she did was squeal.
“Oh my god, you are so cute! Look at your tiny child hands and- oh my god your wings must be baby sized! Aha!” The girl flailed. Meanwhile, her tiny boyfriend pouted and crossed his arms.
“It’s not funny.”
“Yes it is! Look at you!” (Y/n) bopped his tiny nose and faced the boys at full height. “What happened?”
“Witch.” Dean grumbled, still mad that Gabriel bit him. “He’s not very well tamed.”
Gabe clutched the girls calf (for that’s all he could reach) in fear. He didn’t have his angel mojo at the moment, so he was completely vulnerable.
“H-he’s not gonna hurt me right?” Dean smiled wickedly.
“That’s right! You don’t have any magic, do you? We could always just-” Dean made a grab for the tiny being, but (Y/n) beat him to it. She propped the boy against her hip with his tiny arms snaked around her neck. Gabe puffed out his lower lip, faking a sniff.
“P-please don’t let h-h-him hurt me!” He ‘cried.’
“Be nice Dean! You got him in this mess, you boys will get him out. Understood?” Gabe smiled and stuck his tongue out, quickly returning to his fake sniffing. “I said, understood?” The trio nodded and headed for the library.
“So what now?” Gabe asked.
“Well, let’s see. You can’t drink, your powers are gone, I could use you to attract guys but that’s mean, hm… I- I actually don’t know. I’m not used to babysitting kids.”
“Can we watch a movie?”
“That sounds good.”
“Let’s watch Hitman!”
“Okay, The Lion King it is!”
“What? But why?” He dragged out the 'y’ part.
“Cause you’re five, and Hitman is rated R.” He groaned, but didn’t argue anymore. She was much bigger than him at the moment, so there was no use. The two sat down on the couch, Gabe in her lap and her spread over the entire thing. The only advantage he could see to being this small is he could use her boobs as pillows and not get hit for it, but he did that a lot anyways. When the movie ended, they laughed, throwing bits of popcorn they had made at each other. The boys had come home at about 7 pm, give or take a half an hour. So by now it was almost 10 o'clock. (Y/n) picked Gabe up, setting him back on her hip.
“Cmon, it’s way past time for you to be in bed. You can stay with me tonight, alright?” Gabe nodded. They bid the boys goodnight before heading to (Y/n)’s room.
“Uh- not that I’m complaining or a-anything, but I’m still here.” He called from her bed when she tugged her tshirt over her head.
“Well if it makes you uncomfortable, you can wait outside.” She laughed, pulling off her jeans. Gabe shook his head and watched her form search for pajamas. She’d always slapped him when he tried to follow her in here when she changed.
“No, it’s fine.” Finally dressed in shorts and a tank top, she climbed next to him on the bed. She pulled back the (f/c) covers and snuggled under the sheets, careful not to squish the tiny being next to her.
“Love you too.” He allowed her arms to pull him onto her chest. That night, the two fell asleep happy, despite that day’s circumstances. (Y/n), however, did not wake up quite as comfortable or happy, considering Gabe was now full sized and squishing her. It was an interesting experience for the boys to hear the first words of the morning be “Gabe get your fat ass off me now!”
Would you rather be trapped during in apocalypse in Australia or Los Angeles? Definitely Australia. If there is any safe haven on this planet, Australia is in the running. We’re so isolated. It’s harsh environments, but once you’ve lived there, you know how to deal. In L.A., you only ever know the community and that’s the first thing that falls and would be hard to adjust to.
