Quick update for my post: 38, female, Swiss 🇨🇭 , ace-aro :heart_ace: (aegosexual), fandom old. Writer, vidder, giffer. Currently mainly into but also lots of other fandoms (mostly tv).

Came here after seeing posts on fandom-after-tumblr - really enjoying this place, especially because I never did fandom twitter.
I'm shirasade pretty much everywhere else - :dw: :tumblr: :ao3: :pillowfort: also Hubzilla (, previously LJ (deleted).

@TheWebRecluse The ace-umbrella is vast, and last year I stumbled across that term, which just fits my own brand of asexuality perfectly. I'm not sex- or romance-repulsed in the least, as proven by my love of writing/reading smut and of shipping in general. I just don't want either for myself, I like to keep it one degree removed, so to speak.

@TheWebRecluse sexuality is so complicated. It took me ages to realize I fit under the ace umbrella, because I didn't match the most obvious definition. A lot of people don't get how good it feels to find acceptance.
