since it’s asexual awareness week I wanna rec some books with great ace characters from all over the ace spectrum (some have more than one!!!!!!! actually i think all of my recs have more than one tbh)
When I love, I love: wholly, thoroughly, completely, drowning in everything. Every glance can be a conversation, eyes just playing and saying what needs to be said. Silence is loud, and the air becomes heavy. I want you. I want all of you.
The question hung in the air. Several creatures glanced at each other uncertainly; is there an answer?
“Perhaps someone should, as it seems no one has.”
“I will.” Said one purple alien. “I’m sure nothing is wrong. She is likely just sleeping, or something else human-like.”
The creature left.
The others returned to their activites - monitor the ship, read a book of some sort, or playing a game from their home planet.
It was only a few moments later that a horrified scream came from the halls. Immediately, every creature in the room dropped what they were doing to run to the source of the sound.
What they found was the purple creature standing, shaking, in the doorway of the human’s quarters.
“What is it? What is the problem?” An orange creature cried.
“Th-The human is going to die!”
“I am not dead!” Came the human’s protest. “I’m not dying either! Why did you scream?”
The creatures quickly flooded into the room, only to gasp in shock. A yellow one in the back of the crowd fainted.
“What are you DOING?” The Captain yelled.
“I was getting a drink and then Purple over here came in and-”
“YOU WERE DRINKING THAT?!” The green creature turned a gentle shade of white.
“Uh, yeah?” The human glanced at the bottle in her hands. “It’s just water.”
“How could you do this to us!” A pink creature sobbed. “We thought you enjoyed being on our ship!”
“I-I do? What makes you think I don’t?”
“You were trying to poison yourself, you dwarf planet!” The Captain searched frantically for a med-kit. “Do we have poison antidotes in our kits?”
“This isn’t poison! It’s water! I drink it all the time!”
“Why would you do that?! To build an immunity?”
“No! Humans drink water all the time! We need it to survive.”
“Humans drink water everyday. If we don’t we will die. About seventy-percent of the human body is made of water. Or it might be eighty-percent, I’m not entirely sure. Anyway, water gives us strength and energy. We literally HAVE to have it.”
The crew was in shock. There was no movement for a second, then the Captain raised his arm and opened his log. The others listened while he spoke.
“Captain’s log, day 28 with the human crewmate; humans drink poison on a daily basis. Our study of the human becomes more questionable each day. The human claims that all humans drink poison everyday, because it makes them thrive, and without it they would die. I am confident it will take more than one journey around the galaxy to understand humans even a small bit. Over.”
I just sort of want to say something before we continue. You probably think that Aled Last and I are going to fall in love
or something. Since he is a boy and I am a girl. I just wanted to say – We don’t. That’s all.
i love you because you're fiercely, genuinely, mercilessly yourself. with a whip-sharp tongue and bright eyes, you are all i admire and all i ever want to be. you say what's on my mind - you are like part of my soul. you remind me of who i am, and i'm never more sure of myself when i'm with you.
i love you because you're so warm and soft. i am undeserving of your gentleness, your tenderness, your patience and comfort - but you offer it to me anyway. you hold me up when i'm in danger of falling down, and you make me laugh when i feel like all i'd rather do is cry. you are forever my guardian angel, and i could never be thankful enough.
i love you because you make me feel alive. it's like life comes into focus when you are around - everything is vivid, interesting, beautiful. you're like a shot of oxytocin when the darkness comes creeping in, and i could never get enough of you.
i love you because you feel like home. we may not see eye to eye, but you stand by me when i need it most. you are the rock keeping steady by my side, and there is a quiet familiarity you bring that always puts me at ease. you are my family.
i love you because you make me feel like i am the brightest star in the sky. you treat me like a princess, and your vivacity makes my heart deliriously happy no matter the circumstances. you are the light of my life, radiant and unforgettable.
i love you because you are like stable ground in the middle of an earthquake. you ground me, see into me - not past me like so many people do. you help me feel okay when things feel anything but. you are unchanging in the face of chaos, and i know i can always turn to you.
i love you because you never push me too far. i don't feel like i have to act around you - unlike others, you don't expect anything from me, and it's a freedom more relieving than words can explain. you let me be without a mask, and sometimes that's all i need.
i love you because we don't need words. i can count on you to have my back when it counts, and you understand when i need silence more than conversation. you know the importance of quiet, and i appreciate that more than you know.
i love you because you see my potential. you are my inspiration, my brilliant epiphany - you make life something fresh and new, filled with adventure and excitement. you make me believe that there is so much on the horizon. with you i could forget my problems - you are irreplaceable, my elixir like nothing else.
i love you because you try your very best. you may not be able to read my mind, but you put your entire heart and soul into doing whatever you can for me. sometimes it's not the result that counts but the effort, and you prove that to the furthest extent.
i love you because you bring me back to reality. you not only listen, but you speak, and your honesty means everything to me. you never judge me - instead, you take everything i give you and try to help me with all your heart. your dedication is unwavering, and no matter how deep under i am, you never let me drown.
i love you because you are so damned strong. you've been through so much shit, and yet i know that you'd drop everything in a second to help me. despite everything you've suffered, you still look at life like it's the best thing you've ever been given. i don't deserve your support and optimism, but you have the best heart of anyone i've ever known - and i know that somehow, it's always open for me.

Taehyung has liked you as long as he can remember. He’s unsure when the line
blurred from friendship to romantically, but it’s about to get a lot worse when
he’s forced to watch you date his friend, Jungkook…
