So why the optimism?
Well I've come across what I consider a little gem of a fic.
I've been trying to read more diversely in terms of gender, since at the moment, most of what I read is by and about cis-gendered people who fit into the gender binary of male/female.
Fanfiction is often a great resource when it comes to reading diversely.
(Don't get me wrong - it can sometimes be shockingly mis-representative, but due to the open and accessible nature of the medium, there are also people doing some amazing stuff for diversity through fics.)
This week's fic is a short, sweet, little fic about Harry Potter's friendship with Luna Lovegood.
Both Harry and Luna identify as non-binary in this fic, with Harry using they/them pronouns, and Luna using xe/xyr pronouns.
This week's fic then, my dear nerdlets, is:
Blibbering Humdingers are Allergic to Bread by hanarsweater
See you next week for more fanfiction-y-ness - same time, same place! :)
