    I guess, I'm just so much more romantic then people expect. My girl fell hard for me (and me for her) but her wife, who has a girlfriend of her own isn't pleased, saying, "It's not fair (my girl) is so happy", and I think my age, wealth, and awesomeness are intimidating. There's talk of them splitting up. I guess we'll see.

    how someone can say the phrase 'it's not fair (my girl) is so happy' is beyond me. isn't wanting your partner to be happy the entire point??
    probs for the best that your gf leaves her wife. she sounds kind of controlling.

    Aww I hope everything works out for the best for everyone.

    My girlfriend has dated boys while with me, but still gets jealous if I see another girl. :P

    That's great! Congratulations!
    Write the change you want to see in the world!

    Writing exposition is like putting red pepper flakes on your pizza - the occasional burst adds depth and flavor, too much in a lump can burn the reader out.

    It's Bad To Be The Favorite - 9/15/14

    Wish Me Away

    Ours is characteristically the kind of if-it-isn't-this-it-has-to-be-that, dichotomized, either/or thinking that philosophers from earlier times have cautioned can lead to a simplistic misreading of reality. And, indeed, psychologists today have discovered it is the mark of a lower or less psychologically evolved stage of cognitive and emotional development. - Riane Eisler

    I'd never thought I'd say these words but my hometown, South Bend, Indiana, recently elected an openly gay man as mayor for the first time. Today, said mayor proposed to his boyfriend. The city is currently in flames, shit is being lost, fits are being thrown, and people just can't even as I write this. Well. South Bend probably isn't in flames but I can guarantee you the parts about people losing their shit and throwing fits.

    I still poop rainbows.

    I won't steal any of your ideas. I have enough of my own I'm not using.

    I just wanted to say a quick hello. I'm new here, and so thrilled to discover such a supportive community. I suspect this is one of the places I'll be checking in regularly.

    Hi! I also wanted to say a quick hello. New here, and thrilled that this subforum exists! 98% of my writing features queer characters doing regular things and having regular relationships without focusing on the "omg I'm gay" subplot. I mean, those coming out/coming to terms with one's sexuality stories are important, especially for younger readers, but I just like to write things as I experience them on the daily... as pretty normal. (Then again, I live in SF so here's "normal" is in stark contrast with say, Virginia's (where my best friend was living) "normal" lol)

    in short, I'm just a small gay southeast asian living with her very tall eastern european/american gf lmao
