@naga Dear fucking god... I don't actually know who Cormac McCarthy is, but he is now and forever on my Do Not Read list.

Gah!

Okay, so far so good story and rep-wise, but the only way this author is distinguishing between English and ASL is English is in double quotes and ASL is in single quotes. And I really wish they'd used something more distinct bc I'm GOING to get confused with my executive dysfunction being as bad as it is.

After seeing so many poorly done characters in the past year, I nearly passed on this book just because it has a Deaf character.

I haven't even started reading yet and I'm so happy I gave this a shot. I don't know if the author is Deaf or has Deaf family or what, but they opened the book with a quick rundown on Deaf vs deaf, the difference between English and ASL grammar, and generally made it clear that THIS author knows what the fuck they are doing. (and is fluent in ASL)

Went looking for something to read and found what looks to be a fun MM romance with an disabled sub.

Lots of feels about his struggles bc my pet can't kneel and reading this character feeling like because he can't kneel he isn't any good as a sub... it resonates a bit too much with some struggles pet and I have had.

I'm looking forward to seeing this character learn differently.

I'm doing really bad when Civ moves too fast for my brain...

Friday? Sorry, you're taking a three day weekend. Kobolds' orders. Yes, that apostrophe is in the right place.

I'm not sure how many kobolds it will take to carry you out of the office on your rolling desk chair but we'll figure it out.
