Hey, I've realized you haven't updated YBIAW in a while. Not trying to rush you or anything (believe me, I know how hard it is to find inspiration sometimes), but I was just wondering if maybe you've moved on to other things? You write so poetically, and it's hard to read any other Symmrat fic now that I've read this one. Everything else just seems subpar. Xd. Huge thanks for writing this, it's utterly amazing. <3

I haven’t moved onto anything else – just entertaining another ship on the side to help with some mental health stuff. I do love OW to bits and I love junkmetra just as much (if not more), but sometimes the attitude of the more toxic parts of the fandom bleeds over into my little spaces and it affects me in ways it shouldn’t. I get tired seeing a lot of the same thing. I get tired of people being immature about shipping. I get tired of people saying everyone who ships ‘x’ is a bad person and that their portrayal is wrong and unhealthy. It’s so very draining and it made me kind of retreat to another corner for a short while.

And while this is neither here nor there, it also bothers me a great deal that allistics use autism as some kind of silver bullet or as proof that a ship would never work. I see people spreading all sorts of misinformation and taking it as gospel. I also see people treating Satya with kid gloves or infantilising her. And then there’s the whole “I think I’m informed on the subject so I’m going to speak about it on your behalf” and?? It’s frustrating.

I’m autistic. I don’t need anyone to speak for me, no less allistic people who think they know what being an autistic person is like or how we interact with the world or other people, and especially not allistic people who think all autistic people are the same and lump us into the “you can’t have a relationship” box. There is such much garbage out there about how Satya shouldn’t have a realtionship with x person because she’s autistic, but everyone else is okay like suddenly the ‘perceived roadblock’ of autism disappears when she’s with someone else.

I have seen so many people say that Jamison and Satya could never have a relationship because the portrayal of them together is harmful.

My portrayal of them becoming friends through mutual interests in building, creating, and working through the new OW recall is harmful? Commiserating with one another over their pasts, losing their parents, and the other people they knew as children is harmful? Creating one another stim toys and stimming together in the OW workshop is harmful? Learning new things together with the OW crew and making friends with the team is harmful? Two neurodivergent people seeing pieces of themselves in one another despite their vast differences and broadening their views together with Winston and the others is harmful?

It’s frustrating. It is. Everyone is free to like or dislike what they want, but when this potential relationship is defaulted to harmful instead of something that could help two people grow in OW’s shadow – solely because Satya is autistic – it starts to grate on my nerves and wear me down.
