it's the light (it's the obstacle that casts it) - Handful_of_Silence - Good Omens - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett [Archive of Our Own]
It's like having a curtain pulled back on something he wasn't expecting to see. A surprise punch-and-judy at an up-scale restaurant, a lobster thermidor when he's ordered an ale.

Crowley's gleefully trying to wrap his head around the fact that Aziraphale is speaking Polari. Because of course he is.

Or: The Patron Saint of London's LGBT Community is real, and he lives in Soho.

“Anyway,” Crowley says, “I’m surprised you didn’t bring it up sooner. It’s literally a giant festival about love, figured it would be right up your alley.”

Or, no cops at Pride, just Crowley and his sword-wielding husband.

Life Lessons from a Murderbot: Reading All Systems Red as a Trans Woman |
For me as a trans woman, All Systems Red’s concoction of heartbreak and ever-present anxiety felt achingly familiar to me (even as Murderbot’s narration and dry delivery cracked me up more often than not), as I looked back at various pressure points in my own transition. The novella has a lot to say about building a personal identity on the fly.

‘Whatever I understand, I know that you have won renown and glory on the field, and shown yourself to be mighty in arms, and fearless, and fair. And I know that you are a lady of great heart, and that it is softer than you have made it. And that I would not for my life have you made less than you are. And I would wed you, and live with you in peace, as Éowyn, or Dernhelm, or whoever you wish. And what I do not yet understand, I will learn, and gladly.’

Never Let No One Man Worry Your Mind - cimorene
"Cos! Thank God you're alive, I thought my double act was about to become a single," Don said. "Where have you been?"

"In jail," Cosmo whispered back, "Happy birthday."

Don clapped him on the shoulder. "Thanks; you're a little late, but... in where?"

"Keep your voice down," hissed Cosmo, just as a hail of applause blew the curtain back and practically deafened him. "In jail."

Dangerous Jam - The Agency Has Come Forward
The unnamed agency in our previous post has chosen to present their perception of the exchange. We confirm that it was the agency we referred to. We stand by every word we wrote in our original article.

We did not wish to name them, because we preferred to focus on the larger issues. We did not spread rumors about them, and we don't know who did.

I have numbers! Stats on LGBT Young Adult Books Published in the U.S. – Updated 9/15/11
On Monday I noted that in light of this post from two authors who were asked by an agent to de-gay their book, I was planning to do some statistics wrangling and see if I could quantify some of what’s happening in LGBT YA publishing.

lgbtfest: Discworld: "Modern Love" by Penknife
Prompt: Discworld, any character, The ongoing changes in dwarven views on gender and sexuality have any number of repercussions. How many young dwarves are "coming out" as the gender they weren't born as? Conversely, is all this openness actually eroding dwarven freedom to view themselves however, and marry whomever, they wish?
Summary: It's amazing how the world rarely gets less complicated.
