sometimes I spend a long time just remembering people I used to be really close with, romantically or just a friendship, and I find it so odd how we used to be such a big part of each other’s lives but now i only think of them when someone mentions their name
“the victorians thought” - which is to say, a perfect reason to be skeptical
“HMM YES SHE WAS A… SCHool… Teacher…. Yes….. that’s it…. “ say the Victorians. to be fair the post was going “yes the victorians thought this and in 10 ad this person wrote this and all of that is not likely true about sappho at all” but its like going, “ok lots of ppl thought she was a Hetero thru time “ to juxtapose w/ our Modern Conception of her as A Big Gay and how thats like the Same Sort Of Thing We’re Doing is not i think precisely fair. like “Our modern attempts to paint Sappho as entirely homosexual are no better than the attempts of archaic historians to paint her as heterosexual.” is not i think entirely fair: pls see, how ppl like Heteros more than lesbians, for an example.
“But honestly I’d rather be somewhere with my people, we can kick it and just listen to
some music with a message, (like we usually do). And we’ll discuss our big dreams, how we plan, to take over the planet.”

No matter how big or small we are incredibly grateful for all the donations, you ghosties are so amazing! Thank you for helping us to spread positive awareness of mental health! xxxxx
So with the excellent news that Erimem is apparently confirmed bi in the preface to the new book (thanks to whenyousayrun for pointing this out!) I thought it was time to do an updated version of my old bi companions graphic to include her as well as Benny since she’s confirmed to have married River (as said by both Moffat and Cornell) and also give Owen and Tosh their own squares because why not, even if they’re not technically companions they’re close enough.
The usual caveat applies that this is generally taken as indication that the characters have displayed romantic or sexual attraction to multiple genders and thus many could also be read as pan, or ace and bi/panromantic, etc. while others have been confirmed through word of god, but all can fall somewhere under the bi umbrella. Although anyone who says that Jack isn’t actually bi but is really pan will feel my well-researched wrath.
(The list: Mike Yates, Erimemushinteperem, Ace McShane, Bernice Summerfield, Chris Cwej, Sam Jones, Fey Truscott-Sade, Fitz Kreiner, Majenta Pryce, Jack Harkness, Toshiko Sato, Ianto Jones, Owen Harper, River Song, Oswin/Clara Oswald, and potentially more? If anyone has any more to add to the list I’ll be happy to hear of them!)
