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.

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.

Finally got around to unbox some of my books. (I have a fourth box that I ADHD-blinded myself from, oh no, this may require More Furniture.)

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.

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.

how poor is our conversation, that we have to renegotiate all of queerness every time we start talking again
