    I see you’ve got a link about asexuality up there! Forgive me for being a little presumptious and keep in mind that I don’t speak for the whole community, but I am asexual, and you all can feel free to ask me about it if you want an insider’s opinion.

    (Side note: It might seem like there are an implausible amount of things that are in my personal wheelhouse, given that I mentioned being nonbinary and autistic earlier, but asexuality, autism, and nonbinary identity often occur simultaneously.)

    If you like some spooky shit, this book “The Ninth House” is awesome. It’s got ghosts, murder, history, dark arts, college secret society bullshit, and sex. I’m so into it.


    Stephen King’s book The Institute also rocks.

    But the spookiest fucking book I’ve ever read, I can’t remember the name, but it was about this ancient Dutch witch from the 1600s with her mouth sewn shut who was haunting this town in upstate NY in modern times. She’d just appear in your room at night. I was afraid to go to the bathroom.
