Shelf Four: my small occult collection. It’s a collection more than a library bookshelf because I haven’t read most of them… yet. (I will eventually give in to the whispers.) Mostly about basic magic introductions or histories, or word magic/psychological effects of language.
Yes, I know Unknown Armies is not real. It’s dear to me anyway and I will die on the hill that it belongs here.
Most of the fiction I consume I buy as ebook because the space needed to store all of that would be absolutely ludicrous otherwise.
Shelf Three: What little set of fiction books I kept on the left; in the middle, histories; on the right, texts on and around kink, whether fiction or reference guides.
Queerness and sex.
Shelf Two: Comics, aka, What I Actually Read Most. I have read most of these. On the left are stories of queerness that resonate with me, on the right more general stuff I’ve kept.
That said I started NEO: TWEWY last night and I’m sad to report these two starting kids are basically on a wavelength so rehearsed they are going to definitely be friends for life* but I cannot imagine them as partners.
* unless either does something so monumentally boneheaded it endangers their relationship, which, it’s TWEWY, it’s absolutely teen angst time.
I rivendicate the ability to look at two fictional characters and go “they’re boyfriends/girlfriends/partners” not because every relationship that we see is romantic, but because by reading a relationship as only ever possibly friendship we:
- codify and uphold hegemonic standards;
- railroad characters into straightness, without the possibility of evolving romantically;
- erase the spectrum of queered relationship, where a deep kinship can exist in a space between different kinds of love.
Felt cute, may delete later.

Haven’t written much lately because brain got dropped into slumptown, but I did this tiny fragment for tone for a Pilgrim Sky thing and @vyr immediately went “are they using the forever war to sell subscriptions” and I was like, yeppppppppp, welcome to the Shadow Bloc, babe
how poor is our conversation, that we have to renegotiate all of queerness every time we start talking again
