the young don

Kids can be asexual. It involves being not attracted to anyone. A lot of young asexuals don’t experience ‘crushes’ the same way, if at all.

I found that this was easier to explain before the Split Attraction Model was popularized. Asexuals were one category not unlike Bisexual folk. At least when I was growing up ace. There was no distinction between an ace who was dating a person of the same or other gender, or if they were dating at all. Because they were all just asexual. And that continues to make the most sense to me. I understand the desire to further clarify for some folk. But I’m not one of them and I feel like folk who use the SAM are unfortunately targeted by discourse due to these 'microlabels’. This needs to stop. The division is even within the asexual community in reguards to who is a 'true ace’ and that shouldn’t be going on. An asexual is an asexual, regaurdless of their sex life, their libido, their levels of attraction, or their other labels.

Never force the Split Attraction Model on an ace that doesn’t use it. And never assume those labels are relevant to them just because they’re asexual.

In the same regard don’t judge asexuals who use the SAM. They’re not the source of the discourse, just an unfortunate target sometimes like all of us. Protect one another.

All asexuals are valid.

What's your strangest childhood memory?

Hmm..
I have a vivid memory of almost being abducted as a child? Like, the local mall had a little play area, and my parents were sitting by the place while I was playing, and then this woman starts asking me questions, and eventually takes my hand and we start walking away, and then my parents notice I’m not there, they yell my name, and I tell the nice lady I have to go, and run back to the little playground.
Mom swears she doesn’t remember this, but I do
I must have been really young, because I don’t remember either of my brothers being there with me, and they’re only a few years younger than me lol

Why I adore the idea of the Inquisition as extended family

The inquisition as extended family to Cullen and the Inquisitor’s kids would be WONDERFUL I mean, ‘c mon:

  • “BULL she is too young to drink don’t give her that!”
  • Bull, I received a message from their school that a Qunari showed up to tell a bully that  ‘if they say one more bad word about ‘his friends’ that they’ll end up on the pointy side of a sword’. Seriously? You didn’t even ask me to come along?
  • kids piggybacking on Iron Bull (plus points if their mom ever ‘rode the bull’ because puns which go right over those kids’ heads but not over Cullen’s)
  • “THEY’RE ALSO TOO YOUNG TO JOIN THE CHARGERS KREM!”
  • Leliana, I know you mean well, but stop gifting them daggers please because they’re leaving them all over the place and we nearly stepped on one yesterday.  
  • What do you mean Leliana gave you a pet nug? Another one?
  • LELIANA ARE YOU SERIOUSLY USING MY CHILDREN TO SPY ON US? IS THAT BY ANY CHANCE RELATED TO THE RAVENS CIRCLING THE HOUSE?
  • *Dorian giving the kids fashion advice* *it results in the little ones showing up with fake mustaches which was not his idea but he is moved by the gesture* “They wanna be like you Dorian.”
  • If any of the kids turns out to be a mage, Dorian’s becoming their mentor, point final. Vivienne takes over when he doesn’t have time for their lessons.
  • (Dorian’d be the godfather of my Inquisitor’s kids btw. Hands down.)
  • The kids hanging around with Cole, especially when teenagers, cause he helps them make sense of all that they’re feeling and what others are feeling. As a result they become super emphatic and understanding people.
  • Cole loves how open-minded kids are and happily babysits whenever asked.
  • Sera, Josie and Dorian teaching those kids to do and love what- and whoever they damn well please.
  • Pranks with Sera, so many pranks with Sera. Cullen and the inquisitor know there’ll be trouble when Sera and the kids dissapear for a little while.
  • Varric helping in teaching the little ones to read and write.
  • Varric reading their works and giving pointers on how to make them better, encouraging them to keep writing and keep getting better at their craft.
  • Little ones staring at Varric in awe over all of the stories, including of their parents ‘holding hands on the table’ (side-eyeing the inquisitor and cullen).
  • Cassandra’d be their godmother and yeah she’d cry when asked.
  • Cassandra teaches the kids to be true to themselves and if the kids don’t go to their parents, they go to her when something serious is happening
  • Cassandra does mock-fights with the kids using wooden swords when their dad isn’t doing so.
  • Cassandra teaches the kids eyeliner.
  • She made them promise not to tell Varric about it, but when they’re grown up they discuss story lines and ships from Varrics books with her.
  • (The kids low-key ship Cassandra and Varric cause reasons.)
  • If any of those kids has diplomatic ambitions, Josephine will happily teach em the ropes.
  • One of those kids is gonna be Josie’s plus one for some formal events.
  • Josie is the one who brings the kids gifs, delicious foods from diplomatic trips mostly, and talks to them about the beauty and strength in diversity.
  • Josephine and Leliana giving the small ones musical instruments cause #ex-bards
  • Vivienne shows them how to look confident even when they don’t feel they have the upper hand.
  • Vivienne entertains the kids with trivial magic tricks when nobody’s looking. When someone notices, she denies it and winks at the kids afterwards with a smile.
  • “Mommy, daddy, I saw a wolf-elf in my dream last night and he told me he knows you!” *wide-eyed Cullen and Inquisitor cause oh shit*
