What’s your favorite book/movie/webcomic/etc with one or more officially asexual characters?
I know this is a cliched question, but I’m still really curious, and I think sharing resources and representation are always valuable. Mine are ‘This song is (not) for you’ about two allo kids and an ace kid in a band, and about how they manage their deepening friendships and various attractions. The other is ‘Tash hearts Tolstoy’ about a group of friends who produce a youtube adaptation of Anna Karenina. The main character is a heteroromantic ace, so a lot of the plot is about how her sexuality affects her friendships and love interest.
I’m also VERY excited for Mackenzi Lee’s next novel, which will feature a SUPER KICK ARSE surgeon/pirate woman who is *probably* ace. The author has not confirmed for sure (bc spoilers :p), but there is some very ace relatable content in the first book Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue. I didn’t *actually* enjoy that book, because I found the two main characters constantly pining for each others bodies extremely off putting, but I think the sequel will be spectacular.
What are your favourite ace characters? I specified canon ace bc (spoilers) next fortnight’s question will be who do you headcanon as ace.
