WHY THIS WOMAN WOULD RATHER READ HARRY POTTER EROTICA THAN WATCH PORN
When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.”
Watch her full monologue here.

I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.
And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.
I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.
Reblebbing for Rosalarian’s comment and to say this: I was actually embarrassed about my Smut Peddler submission for a while, because it featured two people who had backstories and were enthusiastic about sex. Because sex within context rather than BANGIN OUTA NOWHERE is a “feminine preference” and therefore “not real porn” and ugh fuck that mentality, fuck all of it forever
Strong language, but she makes a very good point. :)

Do not wear contact lenses if you are in a situation where you may be tear-gassed. When I went through basic training, we were warned that there was a possibility the tear gas they were using could melt contact lenses.

Some of the Dragon Age: Inquisition origin stories.
(for each race the only difference in the language is between the melee and mage classes)
Human Mage FTW!
Looks like my Inquisitor is definitely going with the fancier sounding English accent (as opposed to American) to emphasize his noble upbringing :)
