JESUS FUCK THIS HAS HOW MANY NOTES??
When you get to the end of a story and want to fill in all the blanks, that’s not necessarily the sign of a lack in the original. Sometimes it’s just because you don’t want to leave this amazing new world that has been created!
According to the descriptions of the Tales from the Shadowhunter Academy stories, SIMON AND CLARY ARE GOING TO BE PARABATAI THIS IS WONDERFUL AND I AM SO HAPPY THIS IS BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE EVER DREAMED. (Simon is my favorite and I just want him to be happy!)
What Lily would say if she could hear the awful way people talk about either James or Snape deserving her
Lily made her own decisions as a smart and independent person so stop questioning/insulting her agency and deal with it.
JUST FUCKING LISTEN.
THIS IS HALLOWEEN BUT NOT LIKE YOU KNOW IT
reblog so others can hear it!
Where the hell are the Victorian Goths they should be all over this.

It’s so beautiful *tear*
When she spied Gendry, his bare chest was slick with sweat, but the blue eyes under the heavy black hair had the stubborn look she remembered.She watched the play of muscles in his chest and listened to the steel music he made. He’s strong, she thought.
in Action Comics Weekly #614, Dick explicitly tells Roy that he couldn’t have a sexual relationship with someone if he didn’t have an emotional one as well.
Demisexuality is not experiencing sexual attraction until a strong emotional bond is formed. That is basically what Dick is describing here. He doesn’t do casual one-night stands, he needs to know the person first.
Like, you can tell me whatever you want about him but he is not straight. Not sexually at least
Wait, question (for people who know more about this than me):
Is demisexuality about sexual attraction or sexual relationships? Because I can definitely look at someone and say, “Ooh, they’re sexy,” and be attracted to them. But what Dick Grayson says in the comic panel above—“I couldn’t make love to someone I didn’t really love”—that is exactly how I feel. I can be attracted to someone in a sexual way, but I am the kind of person who won’t (can’t) act on attraction unless I know I really love the person and have a strong emotional commitment to them. Like, I don’t even want to kiss anyone unless I know them really well and know that I love them. And since I didn’t even know demisexuality was a thing until coming to university, I guess I just never considered that I was anything other than sexual… or whatever the term is for people who are not demi- or a- sexual. And now I don’t know…. Can someone clear up for me what the term refers to (attraction or actual sexual actions)?
Also, is it possible to be hetero-demi-sexual (just making a term up here, I suppose)? Like demisexual but also only attracted to people of the opposite gender? The comments above imply that demisexual and straight are mutually exclusive adjectives, which just confuses me. I guess my thinking is that maybe hetero-, homo-, bi-, pan-sexual, etc. are one type of sexuality category (genders you are attracted to) and sexual, demisexual, and asexual are another type (levels of sexual attraction). But again, this stuff is relatively new to me, and I’m not sure I totally understand. Help?
Demisexuality is about attraction, but it’s not necessarily about thinking someone is pretty. Like, I can think someone is really attractive, but I’m not going to want to have sex with them. Like, it’s not a conscious decision (“I will not because of my morals” or “I never kiss on the first date because reasons” or whatever), it’s just I cannot even picture having sex with them in my head unless I have an emotional connection. It’s different from behavior, because you can have sex with someone without being sexually attracted to them and you can not have sex even if you really are attracted to people.
But sexuality is complicated, and I’m not 100% sure if I’m demisexual or not. I’m pretty sure I am, but it’s not a 100% thing. More like a 75% thing.
And you’re right: sexual orientation (as in who you feel sexual attraction towards) is different from levels of sexual attraction. Like, you could be demi-bi-sexual in that you have the capacity to be attracted to multiple genders, but you only experience that attraction when you have an emotional connection with that person. Or you could be heteroromantic and asexual: no sexual attraction, but the people you fall in love with are all of another gender.
Thanks BB! This is helpful.
