I have several people I want to get fic recs from, and I have e-mail addresses for them. (Later: I wrote to one.)
I ordered a book of essays about yaoi manga. The introduction says that there's no Western equivalent, nothing like m/m Harlequin romances. I texted S. about it, noting how wrong they were. I hope the people who wrote the essays did more research than the person who wrote the introduction.
Later: I talked with A. for a couple of hours. He caught me up with his life in Green Bay, and I caught him up on my life here in southeastern Pennsylvania. He had more to say.
