Asexual Awareness Week Fandom Challenge Day 3: A Character You See as Grey-Ace or Demisexual
“Mom, Dad, I need to tell you something.”
Ned and Catelyn looked politely attentive.
Sansa took a deep breath. “I’m not straight.”
“Oh, honey, we know,” Catelyn said kindly.
Sansa’s eyes widened. “What do you mean, you know?”
“We know you and Jeyne have been fooling around for years,” Catelyn said in a voice that was alarmingly casual. When Sansa’s mouth fell open, she added, “I suspected for a while, but when I saw the hickey she left on you after that one sleepover I knew.”
“We’re very proud of you,” Ned said in an encouraging sort of voice. “We know it’s not easy coming out as bisexual. Or do you prefer the term pansexual?” He looked helplessly at Cat. “Was there another one?”
“I’m not–I mean, I’m panromantic, but that’s not, that’s not what I was coming out to you as!” Sansa fretted. “I only mean, I’m demisexual!”
“Oh, all right,” Catelyn said rather cheerfully.
“Yes.” Sansa took a calming breath. “Just so you know. I’m panromantic demisexual.”
“Hi, panromantic demisexual, I’m Dad,” Ned said, clearly thinking he was hilarious.
