Sorry I haven't been on much. School has left me exhausted. I've been coming home and sleeping.
I'm dealing with some crap from my childhood and my mom is not helping and I'm kind of needing to cheer myself up so I'm doing a lot of thinking of Cassportus stories and trying to write fanfiction. Maybe I'll be in a better mood soon. My feelings are a little all over the place. Maybe I shouldn't listen to Nine Inch Nail's "Hurt" so much. So anyway, sorry to everyone, not that most of the people here care about my shit art. I'm sorry if I'm letting my friends down. I'm not trying too.

Detective Inspector Fyodor Sherman, H Division, Whitechapel- At your service.

Purveyor of all sorts of nonsense. My talents include sewing, making Gatorade, and crying over history. You can usually find me in my office listening to Bruce Springsteen and writing bad fanfiction. I attend college in Indiana as a history major, and my passion is Western Civ. I'm a Christian theologian and my patron saint is Thomas More. In non academic stuff I like Attack on Titan, Achievement Hunter, anything British crime drama, bison, and Pokemon. I used to do a lot of photography but right now I'm working on getting better with the gimp. Please validate my existence.

I have two kittens, named Scout and Boo.

I'm pretty obsessed with Roman history, especially Julius Caesar's time, I love Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, and I ship Brutus/Portia/Cassius and everything hurts. I also like HBO Rome (Tobias Menzies is so perfect I hate him) and am a big fan of Thornton Wilder's Ides of March.

I sew cosplay and do some myself. 2013 Chicago TARDIS I was Eight and for Dashcon 2014 I was Carlos the Scientist.

Interests

Activity


The court echoed with the noise of dribbling and running. Brutus and Cassius had three hours to themselves at the school where Brutus taught, and they'd decided to spend it playing basketball. The court was empty except for them.

"What team do you play for, the Cook County Ball Droppers?" Cassius taunted as the ball bounced away from Brutus again. Brutus glared at hm and chased after it.

"I played on the high school team, actually," he said, throwing the ball at Cassius's chest. "Back at St. Thomas More. We were the Panthers. I just haven't played in a while."

Cassius jumped and dunked in the net like a skinny, white Michael Jordan. Brutus had to admit that was awesome.

"I'd have expected the team to be like, the politicians or something," Cassius said, tossing the ball back to Brutus.

"Ha ha," Brutus said. "So, smartass, what team do you play for?"

"You know I hate team sports," Cassius replied. "Unless you mean I'm gay."

"I know. It's LGBT week, I always assumed you were the gayest shit ever." Brutus aimed at the basket and as usual missed by a mile. "I noticed you're wearing that bracelet I made." He gestured at the red, black, and blue friendship bracelet around Cassius's left wrist.

"I like it," Cassius replied. "They're the colors for polyamory. It's cool." He took a shot but it didn't make it over the rim, instead it mockingly swooshed the net. "What made you ask about all that crap?"

"I just realized I'd be completely straight were it not for you," Brutus said, catching the ball and staring at it. "And I'm pretty sure you'd be gay were it not for Portia."

"And she'd be sane were it not for us," Cassius said. Brutus laughed. That was probably true. Brutus tossed the ball back to Cassius without attempting a shot.

"Actually," Cassius said, catching the ball abruptly, "if it weren't for you two I wouldn't be anything."

"Huh?" Brutus was a little dazed by that reply.

"I never fall in love," Cassius replied. "At least, not til I met you and then I met her. You were the first person I loved."

"Aw," Brutus smiled. Portia was the first person he fell in love with, so he didn't know how to reply without possibly making Cassius feel second best.

"I'd be ace trash without you guys." Cassius spun the ball on his finger, another cool trick Brutus envied. He then threw it at Brutus's chest.

"Heh, not too asexual," Brutus said, catching the ball. It knocked some wind out of him but he didn't want Cassius to know. "If last night was anything to go on."

Cassius grinned. "Sorry, Pacific Rim does something to me." He wasn't sorry at all. He sat down on the bleachers and took a drink of Gatorade. They'd been playing for over an hour straight. "I wouldn't want to with anyone other that you two," Cassius continued."It's funny because I never thought myself capable of falling in love in the first place."

"I'm honored," Brutus replied, looking at his boyfriend. Cassius was just too awesome sometimes. On occasion he was a huge pain in the ass, other times he was the best friend you could ask for. He sat down next to him.

"It's called demisexual," Cassius said, fiddling with the bracelet. Brutus had been bored a week before and to counter it he's gotten some thread and learned to make friendship bracelets. He'd made one for Portia and the polyamory for Cassius. He was working on two more polys and some others. It was relaxing, quiet tactile work he could do while watching tv. It was doubly good because Cassius now had a stim- a stimulation item that he could play with to calm down. Usually he either fidgeted and picked his nails or if he could he'd hold hands with Brutus or Portia. This calmed him down without injury and when he couldn't hold hands.

"That always sounds like a special snowflake," Brutus said, snapping Cassius out of his relaxation. "Just a trendy word for people falling in love and then doing the frickle frackle like God intended."

"Not exactly," Cassius said. "It's like... we're drift compatible, like in Pacific Rim. I'm more than in love with you, I feel you two are my soul mates. Doesn't matter that you're a guy and Portia's a girl, it's that I feel you on the deepest level in me. It took me to really know you to be in love though," he said.

"I suppose that that's how I feel about you and Portia," Brutus says. "I tried dating other girls before I met her but none of them... mattered. Then you and I didn't know what to do for the longest time..."

Cassius put his hand on the back of Brutus's head and guided him so that their lips met. They kissed for a long time and Brutus was beyond happy that Cassius was part of him. Finally they broke away, but Cassius kept kissing Brutus's cheek.

"I'm gonna make you a new bracelet to go with your polyamory one," Brutus declared. "I'll find the colors for demisexuality." He smiled, thinking of a million bracelets to make. "I'm finishing the poly ones for Portia and I, and then..." he paused, and added mischievously, "want to see tonight if Portia wants to finish watching Pacific Rim?"
Gay Demi Trash
Cassius and Brutus play a game of basketball while discussing the most complicated game of all, personal relationships.

Originally published on Ao3 here- archiveofourown.org/works/2525…

It's Asexuality/Demisexuality Pride Week apparently (Tumblr will not shut up) and my friend and I have had a headcanon of Cassius being demi for a long time. This really early morning I couldn't sleep so I wrote this. The title on Ao3 is better, and a Breaking Benjamin joke. Curse you dA and your title length limits.

A note on "stimming"- a stim item (short for stimulation) is a small thing people who need to have some sort of tactile thing to do carry around. It might be a small toy, a piece of cloth, or a random item. My soul matish friend carries around two empty thread spools I gave him. I personally have a cross necklace that I always wear and a tiny crucifix on my keychain and I hold both. So now you know what stimming is. For some reason it seemed something Cassius would need.

My tagline on my page or my post signature? They're both song references.

Although I think you mean the Diary of Jane one.

That's okay. It's kinda long.

TriceraCop was a good friend of mine on here. He still is, we follow each other on Tumblr. We have a lot in common, good and sad.
He once asked if anyone wanted to marry him, back when he was still on dA. It was a joke, of course. For fun. I said yes so we always said we were married. We still do. He actually has a girlfriend offline, and I'm terminally single. And I still list him here as one of my friends because I love him so much and he deserves to be on my list still :)
