"...lots of men write fanfic too... they can get away with calling it “homage,” or “public domain,” or “licensed work,” and get on with their bad selves. Maybe more importantly, the world calls it all those things.
Fuzzy Nation? Fanfic. Wicked? Fanfic. Every X-Men comic written since Claremont stopped? Fanfic. Your beloved Hamilton? Real-person fanfic. Songfic, even."

I just finished “the princess saves herself in this one” which is a fantastic, though tearful, book of poems. Lots of CWs needed for it and I was surprised it was recommended to me as a gift for someone else. Still, I really enjoyed it and wanted to share one particular poem that I was happy to see:
Especially when he came into my room and tried to like strike up a conversation when he’s drunk? And my brother and his roommate are sleeping? And fucking closes the door behind him. Like no, not a fucking again. People are going to fucking respect my fucking boundaries. Got him the fuck out my room and locked the fucking door.
He also wouldn’t let me not talk to him. Like if I walked by, in his eyes I have to engage with him. Once he even barged into my room when I was trying to leave for class and started yelling at me. I had to freaking yell at him to leave me alone and basically broke down when I got to class. So, not good memories. So the fact that this guy my brother brought over reminded me of him set off my alarm bells in my head.
So my younger brother and his college roommate brought a friend to thanksgiving. He’s from South Carolina so yay them being good friends. But he’s skeeved me out the entire time. I couldn’t figure out why at first, but it dawned on me that he reminds me of this guy who would never leave me alone in college. Like we were friends with the same people but he was always. fucking. There. I would avoid leaving the room unless I knew he wasn’t in the common room outside my door.
