Last year I published a completely self-indulgent novella-length fanfiction with a silly plot where an autistic character falls in love with another character and hijinks ensue.
Today I got my third or fourth comment on it from a parent of an autistic person thanking me for writing something that helped them understand their child, a response that I never would have anticipated.
Autistic writers: Your work matters.
@snep is it up somewhere to read?
@snep give me Link
@snep That's lovely!
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
