I have a lot of very good friends. I like being able to care about people without having to concern myself with whether it's technically supposed to be a romantic relationship, or a sexual relationship, or anything like that. (In point of fact I'm aromantic asexual.) There's a couple interesting words in the Queer Community about this, actually, although I'm not sure I can use them.
I don't just up and forget people. I drift. That's just a thing that happens. I don't stop caring, though. So here's a pinky promise with a Prospitian carapace.
