i want to like. make a list of not-str8 historical figures bc ppl are tagging that walt whitman post like “omg wait really” & honestly yall deserve better.
Like, you know who wasn’t straight? Charlotte Bronte, who wrote Jane Eyre. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, who wrote Swan Lake. E.M. Forster, who wrote A Passage to India. Marcel Proust. Henry James. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. Virginia Woolf. Herman Melville. Michelangelo. Leonardo Da Vinci. Socrates. William fucking Shakespeare.
And these are just (a few of) the ones we known about, because there’s a storied history of coded messages in literature that mean we are often looking gay metaphors in the face and not understanding them. We’re there, we’re out there, and I’m so mad that I didn’t know.
We have a history. We have a legacy. WE’VE ALWAYS BEEN HERE.
so for like a couple of days now @alienfirst and @fastandfuri0sa and i have been screeching at each other about vampire!perc’ahlia on Twitter (go check out amanda’s twitter for her reply sketches coz omg????) and this ficlet happened oops
“Percy…” Vex sighs, reaching out to touch his cheek, and the look he gives her tightens the squeeze around her heart, “Darling, you aren’t taking anything from me that I’m not giving you willingly. You understand that, right?”
Percy’s eyes close, and he nuzzles a little into her open palm, as if savoring the warmth of her against his cold skin. “I wish you didn’t have to give me these things,” he says a little wistfully, smiling sadly at her, “I wish I didn’t make you feel like you had to give me these things.”

It was strange. Weird. Practically unfathomable and there must be some kind of mistake. The play had those two characters as romantic leads. The ones who slowly turn to look at each other, catch the starry glint in the other’s eye before slowly leaning in, before slowly closing their eyes, before slowly feeling their heartbeat accelerate because oh heavens this is it—before slowly kissing each other for the first time with such tender passion some members of the audience start to cry.
Those roles were not ever meant for the ones who have been friends since seventh grade, where one of them accidentally tripped and tossed their lunch all over the other, rendering the former an apologetic mess and the latter slightly smelling of garlic for the rest of the day. Not for the ones who stayed up far too late binge watching whole seasons of anime because they finally turned in that big project and it’s in fate’s hands now. Definitely not friends who are each other’s best friends, always. Never them.
But when the director swings back to the two of you, the mischievous and excited glint in his eye is unmistakable. His giddiness even bubbles over and he repeats himself, happily gazing between you and the best friend of 6 years standing beside you. "Joshua, [Y/N], you’ll be the best two leads this stage has ever seen.“
@zayn happy birthday bub, have a great one. i’m very proud of you, look back at the last year and the amazing things you’ve accomplished. you’re absolutely amazing! i hope you’re happy and in a good place because you deserve the best. 💜
Wow, so this blog is a year old now! And although I wrote less than I expected, and didn’t put as much time into this blog as I would have wanted to, I still want to thank everyone who has read my fic, left comments and supported me. 2016 will hopefully be filled with more longfics, writing and more interactions with my wonderful readers. THANK YOU!
