how do you headcannon aaron telling andrew he's ace and what was andrews reaction?
I’m glad you ask because I have thought way too damn much about this.
Aaron makes another comment that gets taken the wrong way because of his general hostility towards Neil and his nerves when discussing anything to do with Neil’s demisexuality because he’s afraid to sound too interested and have people look too closely at him
It happens at practice and the whole team is annoyed with him again because there’s Aaron going off on Neil and being a dick about him being demi and not believing him
(Except for Nicky who knows Aaron believes Neil being demi is a real thing and knows Aaron is ace and Nicky gives Aaron a pitying look)
After practice, Andrew waits around and makes the others go wait at the car
And then he confronts Aaron in the locker room
Aaron gets pissed off when Andrew threatens him and acts like Aaron doesn’t believe Neil and is being a dick to him because he’s demi
So the fact that he’s ace comes out in the form of an angry retort that sets Aaron’s heart stuttering and makes the room feel like it just got five or ten degrees warmer
Andrew just stands there all calm and suddenly this becomes an interrogation
Andrew asks what that means and then that opens up a whole new can of worms
And it is absolutely one of the most uncomfortable conversations Aaron has had in his entire life, if not the most uncomfortable, as Andrew interrogates him
With every answer, Andrew is weighing whether he lets Katelyn live or not
Aaron so does not want to be having this conversation with Andrew
Sex conversations are uncomfortable enough for Aaron, but having one with Andrew where Andrew is deciding Katelyn’s fate based off of Aaron’s answers is unbearably uncomfortable and stressful
But Aaron has to answer because he doesn’t want to stay silent and end up with Andrew making bad assumptions about Katelyn based on his silence
Aaron’s skin is crawling while Andrew gets that cold and calculating look in his eyes after Aaron explains that he doesn’t feel sexual attraction and Andrew finds out through further questions that Aaron and Katelyn are having sex
But Aaron thinks the truth is the safest bet because Katelyn isn’t doing anything wrong and if Andrew smells a lie he’ll assume it is because she is doing something wrong
Aaron has never been as uncomfortable as he is when he has to explain to Andrew that his biology still works and he’s not sexually attracted to Katelyn and he doesn’t get turned on looking at her, but she doesn’t force him into anything and he still likes sex with her and her touch still gets him off
Andrew needs so much clarification that Katelyn has never talked Aaron into doing anything Aaron didn’t want to
And Aaron insists that she hasn’t and he told her she’s ace and she is fine with it and asked all about his boundaries
But Andrew still doesn’t particularly trust Katelyn
Aaron doesn’t even bring up any of the times before Katelyn that he had sex high out of his mind because the idea freaked him out less
Because even though those would be a great contrast to how great Katelyn is, he doesn’t need Andrew freaking out over that
Nicky and Neil and Kevin wait outside long enough that Nicky is debating texting Aaron to see if he is still alive
The upperclassmen are still waiting because they’re kind of nosey and want to know what is going on and they also want to see if Aaron survives this
Kevin gets sick of waiting enough that he pulls up a game on his phone and then that occupies him and Neil (although Neil still wonders about what is taking Andrew so long)
Eventually, Andrew is done questioning Aaron and they go to the car and Aaron is uncomfortable but glad the conversation is over but he’s also kind of terrified about whether Andrew is going to keep his secret or not and if he’s going to still murder Katelyn anyways
Nicky asks in German “What took so long?”
Aaron responds in German “I told him.”
Nicky looks shocked and asks “How did that go?”
Aaron mutters “Most uncomfortable conversation of my life. Can we leave now?”
Neil has been listening the whole time and pipes up in German to ask “Told him what?”
Andrew says “Mind your own business.”
And he marks the end of the conversation as he goes and gets into the car and Aaron is a little relieved that at least Andrew doesn’t seem to be telling people or using it as ammunition against him
Andrew doesn’t murder Katelyn, but he definitely keeps a very watchful eye on her and gives her quite the warning that if he finds out that she so much as thought about making Aaron do something that he didn’t want to, he would end her (but that’s a whole other scene)
Hi! I was wondering how you knew you were Demi? I don't have much experience but I was thinking I might be Demisexual, I don't find anyone attractive like other girls my age do. Thanks!
*old man voice* it all started so many years ago…
Just kidding, but it did start when I was a junior in high school. I was kinda scrolling through tumblr, as one would do, and I saw that one of my friends (one that I actually knew in real life and had classes with) was posting asexual things. I got curious, so I tried looking things up. Now, I live in a fairly conservative town. Not that people are blatantly homophobic or anything, but it wasn’t diversity central either (we are aptly nicknamed Vanilla Valley), so I hadn’t had much exposure to the lgbt+ community beyond gay people and the vague idea of trans people. I got really confused about what I was seeing, so I asked my friend what the word asexual meant. Somehow, in the process of trying not to look like an insensitive asshole, I ended up on a website that had the different ace identities. The word demisexual was on there, but I largely ignored it, since my friend is sex-repulsed ace and that’s more what I was interested in learning about.
That was my first time seeing the word, but something must have struck a cord with me, since I ended up kind of toying around with the idea of being asexual in some capacity. I even mentioned that to my mom (she promptly told me I wasn’t allowed to be asexual). In the end, I kind of discarded that idea since I was aware that I wasn’t completely opposed to the idea of sex. Time skip to when I was a freshman in college (I’ll be a sophomore in the fall).
I had a few friends that I would get dinner with after lab, both of whom were in a relationship. I asked them how they met their respective boyfriends, and the conversation turned too, of all things, some of the kink they tried. We were all laughing and stuff, but, I don’t know, I just felt off. I couldn’t get it out of my head. I got back to my room, pulled out my laptop, and googled the word demisexual. I read about some of the common demisexual experiences and I was a little shell shocked. I told myself not to panic, so I made a list. Ways I was demisexual and ways that I wasn’t. The way that I wasn’t had one item. The was the was had somewhere close to fifteen (fifteen that I was willing to admit at the time, at least). So I messaged a different friend on tumblr who mentioned that she was demisexual and asked her about it. We talked for a while, and something clicked with me. When I woke up the next morning, I dived into the tag and was sorely disappointed. I wasn’t “out” to anyone yet, so I couldn’t make any posts on my main blog. I decided that I needed a healthy outlet for some of feelings. so I created this blog. That was that.
Over the course of the next several months, I kept up a sort of informal diary. It is strictly related to the demi stuff and helps me organize my thoughts. In retrospect, I never acted like you would expect a straight person to act. There was a lot of posturing on my end so that I would appear “normal.” Looking back has only strengthened what I already know.
Okay, like, one time, all these kids on the bus were asking if I was gay. Which my response was totally not “why are you even asking me that” and was more along the lines of “what??? No???? I totally love guys. I’m super into dick.” Which. Come on. A guy asked me out once and I panicked so bad I ran away from him. Clearly I was convince both myself and the other people. But also, I never made any moves on anyone regardless of gender. I was always joking about some fake boyfriend I had. Everyone knew it was fake, which was the funny part, but wouldn’t someone else just joke about their crush? Yeah, didn’t have one of those. The last true and proper crush I had was in sixth grade and one day I decided I didn’t want to have a crush, so I promptly stopped all my feelings. Again, not something that a totally straight person would do. Like? Who just wakes up and decides “yeah, not in the mood to have a crush anymore. I’m over this.” and just be done like that unless they’re ace and trying to force attraction that isn’t there?
Just looking back, there are so many little moments that were clearly me being vibrantly asexual. So if you have any of those little moments where you just feel out of the loop or are trying to convince other people of your attraction, you’re probably ace or demi in some way. Personally, I don’t feel comfortable talking about sex unless I intitate the conversation. In the same vein, I don’t like seeing sex, or even kissing, on tv or in movies. And I only like reading about it if I feel the characters have a deep enough connection AND I have been thoroughly warned in advance about the content. I need time to prepare myself or it makes me real uncomfortable real fast. Maybe that happens to you. Maybe not. And anyway, your lack of experience could be an indicator of your ace-ness. I mean, I’m 19 and I haven’t ever gone on a date. Not for lack of opportunity, but more because I just never really had the drive beyond a vague, abstract idea about what a hypothetical boyfriend would be like.
I would link you to the website I used, but it seems to be down at the moment. I have a resources tag if you wish to look through and see if that can be of any use to you. I hope my long, anecdotal story helped you! Good luck!
I will always have so much admiration and respect for Demi. The fact that she made such an emotional and raw documentary about her life for the whole world to see and not holding back about just how bad her struggles and addiction were, is just so amazing and brave….I’m literally at a loss for words.
