    Summary

    Akaashi never wanted a soulmate. He didn't know what it was to see in colors, so it wasn't as if he'd miss them. His whole world spins on it's head with one smack.

    Summary

    This is the first of a series of essays I wish to write on the Gender Politics of Sherlock fandom. There are many things I wanted to say at the official panel but was unable to, since it was derailed by a group of individuals who showed up with the intention of intimidating and harassing the panel moderator. In future essays, I’d like to share my thoughts on femslash, Mary Sues and the fridging of female characters, on heteronormativity in slash, and on queer representation beyond slash (bisexual, pansexual, asexual and trans people in fanworks and fan spaces). I’d like to touch on race and being a queer Woman of Color in a fandom mostly interested in White male characters.

    Before I get to those subjects, however, I feel a need to return to the original intended topic: the essay I began writing on my phone on the plane.

    And that essay is on the subject of noncon fanworks.

    Summary

    On the first train home, there was a dead man.

    The man was never anywhere else but on that green, old train that left the platform seventeen minutes after Akaashi was excused from his volleyball practise.

    The day the two met, Bokuto Kōtarō had already been dead for almost twenty years.

    ***

    This slice of life story covers the fleeting meetings of a boy still alive and a boy long dead on their ways home; one that the other can, and the other cannot reach. Please read the start notes for explanations of what has been changed for this AU for the sake of your own reading pleasure.

    Summary

    “Every time you light a match, you’re supposed to blow it out and make a wish!” Bokuto announces while they’re trudging up the stairs to the school building.
    It's not true. It also doesn’t phase Akaashi in the slightest. He has heard worse, considering this is the same man who once told Akaashi he was only going to respond to the name “Beefmaster” for the rest of the week.

    Guess there's no keeping down the Grim Reaper, huh?

    Relax, Mr. Reaper. I'm headed toward the front gate of R.P.D. Pick you up there.
