i linked all the Ao3s i know – check them out, they’re all great! (and if i’m missing any let me know!)
@bathands[Ao3] - unsure by now how the hell lukas and i even ran across each other, but i think we ended up talking for several hours the first time we had a conversation?? or soon after? anyway we have roughly 500 things in common, and he has my back no matter what, and he wins all tumblr boyfriend awards, the end. also is a fantastic writer. omg, i would kill to have his skill at figurative language.
@daddybek [Ao3] - kim always knows how to uplift EVERYONE, and also she can tear your heart out with her writing. a dear dear friend almost since the day she popped onto tumblr with her “joke blog” (wasn’t it??) that has taken on a life of its own. all her fault i even like this trope. which is a trope now. thank u kim.
@dotingdamen[Ao3] - eve was my very first YOI fandom friend!! she gave me confidence that i could still write well after five years of not writing and has supported me through some tough times this year. writes beautiful stories that make me all shivery. <3<3
@gutgemacht - aesthetic: Bad Boy Cute. will get u good with her angst fic. has a secret undercut she did not tell me about, SHAME!!
@kanekkis[Ao3] -newer friend but we got real close real quick! is one of the most supportive, loving people i know and also will haul you into new fandoms faster than you can blink. ;) and is real-life otabek like whoaaa.
@kymbawee- a literal goddess, WILL make you blush on purpose, not one mean bone in her body, also Will Not Take Shit, definitely braver than me and maybe everyone else to boot. and her cosplay is fucking ART every single time.
@machinewithoutfeelings [Ao3] - even a fandom mom needs a fandom mom, and she is mine!! when i know i am being an idiot, i go tell her all about it, and she verifies that i should, in fact, stop being an idiot. but she does it lovingly. ;)
@mysanitynotfound - honestly the sweetest ray of goddamn sunshine on this PLANET. the little sister i never had, tbh. <3 i’m honored she calls me her friend and i think she’s gonna do WONDERFUL THINGS.

@seekingsquake [Ao3] - i met jayde bc she wrote a thing i loved and yelled about a bunch, and she is lovely and kind and Mine Wife, and i want to write like her omg. late-night conversation partner, does not judge me about anything ever, and i hope we get to hang out and eat poutine soon!
@the-stoned-ranger [Ao3] - hands-down favorite smut writer AND writer in general. i tiptoed around for MONTHS trying to work up the nerve to talk to her (while leaving extremely excited comments on practically everything she posted bc i have no chill) but finally i said hello and guess what, she’s SUPER NICE AND A GREAT HUMAN, HOLY SHIT. she’s my bro and i love her.
