At Con.txt, I moderated the Asexuality Roundtable panel (which had 10 to 20 people attending, much better than I expected for the last panel on the last day, especially when scheduled against the hockeyfic panel), and promised a resource post.

Here it is:

I'd really appreciate more links for demisexuality and grey-asexuality, either informative or fic recs.

The Freedom Requires Wings blog has an asexual spectrum section that features blog posts by asexual, demisexual, and grey-asexual authors. There are some interesting and useful reads there, and they are frequently looking for new contributors.

For those who are interested I also published a paper exploring the the asexual spectrum and American law and culture (it was for a Sexual Orientation and the Law course at my law school). That paper, What Do You Mean You're Not Interested in Sex?: American Life and Law from an Asexual Perspective, is available for free via Smashbooks in a variety of digital formats.

Hi there. I can add Ace of Hearts (Whitechapel fandom) to the list of fic recs.

At My Back series by [ profile] SallyExactly (Marvel Comics Universe, Natasha Romanoff & Clint Barton, Clint Barton & Phil Coulson, Phil Coulson & Natasha Romanoff, espionage/trust/platonic relationship, just a little short of 400k and counting and they're still sure that sex and/or romance isn't what they want with anyone and this is my favourite fic with ace characters ever.)

Just Wanna Have Fun by [ profile] threewalls (Tales of Vesperia, Yuri Lowell and Flynn Scifo - one genderqueer and one demisexual teenage character fumbling together.)

Steak (and No Blowjobs) Day by [ profile] threewalls (Person of Interest Fandom, Sameen Shaw & Root - f/f, one aromantic allosexual and one romantic asexual doing that "is this a date, are we on a mission?" trope.)

Try this ...

See my big list of my QUILTBAG characters and series.

Particularly relevant:

Love Is For Children series -- Clint Barton is asexual, Natasha Romanova is aromantic, JARVIS is also asexual, Steve Rogers is probably demisexual, and Phil Coulson is likely gray-ace since he's hinted at occasional liaisons in the past but shows no strong hankering after sex/romance.

"The Hawkeye Initiative" -- Clint Barton is aromantic sexual, Natasha Romanova is ambiguous due to her past training.

"Daring Truths" -- Hermione and Luna are asexual.

"What Fireworks Are Like" -- Sherlock is asexual.

"Homicidal Psycho Jungle GOH" -- Calvin & Hobbes are asexual.

The Herolock Series -- Sherlock is asexual. So is Ash.

The Schrodinger's Hulk series -- Hulk is Bruce's animus, which means that Bruce is actually feminine but hasn't really figured that out yet. Betsy Ross is demisexual. Bruce-and-Hulk are still trying to get a handle on their sexuality but are in no hurry.

The Alpha Vector series -- Ash and Alex, good!Schrodinger and evil!Schrodinger are all ace.

"Why Ash Loves Alex" -- Ash is asexual, Alex unspecified.

"Drawing the Triangle" -- Omorth is asexual, and forms a permanent relationship with two dance partners.

"A Doe in Velvet" -- I still haven't pinned down if this trans character is ace or celibate or what, but in any case, isn't with anyone.

Path of the Paladins -- The two leads are ace, as specified in "Bouquets of Bygone Days."

Polychrome Heroics has it all. Damask is a plural person whose headmates include Mira (lesbian), Clarity (neutrois, sapiosexual), Ham (gay), Clement (homoromantic asexual), and Maze (hetero demisexual). Alicia Martins / Dr. Infanta, introduced in "Lifeyears," is essentially asexual due to a body trapped in childhood.

Also I do a Poetry Fishbowl once a month, and often another prompt call or two, where folks are welcome to request whatever they want -- prompts about previous or new asexual, aromantic, demisexual, gray-ace, etc. characters are welcome. If you want more representation, ask and you shall receive.
