me and my gf Sam for #lesbianvisibilityday !! We are not only a very cute lesbian couple, but also both dedicated creators of LGBT work!
Sam is the author of the Dragonoak series, a high fantasy trilogy which features a lesbian protagonist and cast (pictured in the middle image, which I drew! I draw a LOT of lesbians, that’s p much my thing.)
We actually originally found each other because of our individual work focusing on wlw!! and this part of our identity as both people and creators is very important to us :) also I am here visiting them across the pond right now so it’s a very good day. To be gay. 👌✨🏳️🌈✨
For reference to newcomers or the curious, the others in this particular series are here. At least I think this is the particular set of demon and lover prompts that anon is referring to, I have a lot.
“The heart wants what it wants.”
“That’s not an excuse for blood sacrifice! Like, oh my god, can’t you just devour half a cheesecake like a normal person? Why do you always have to pull this shit?”
“I feel like you’re starting to warm towards me again. This is good. We have in jokes.”
“Hell would freeze over before I ever warmed up to you again.”
The demon snapped their fingers. “I can arrange that, you know.”
Do any long lasting and genuinely happy relationships form at elsewhere?
Yeah, absolutely! If you’re referring to the student body, relationships proceed more or less as they do at any other university. On the other hand, if you’re asking about relationships with the Gentry - it does happen, but it’s rare. For a wide variety of reasons - different meanings of love, the power imbalance, the capricious nature of so many fae, the danger inherent in getting Involved in the Elsewhere, and the way no Gentry can really leave the thin spots of the world coupled with the way humans begin to forget once they leave, the prospect of mortality - romantic entanglements tend to end poorly. The ones that do result in long-lasting and devoted relationships usually result in the human living either on campus or in another of the world’s thin spots.
We as humans are composed of both positive and negative energies. It’s impossible to completely eliminate all negative energy, for we are only human. However, we can choose which we project onto the rest of the world. We can choose which one we allow to drive our life. We have this decision. Sadly, we will never be void of all darkness, but we can choose how we let it effect us and our personal growth.
