Harry Potter, Albus Severus/Scorpius "just remember that sometimes, the way that you think about a person isn't how they actually are" ~ John Green

Harry Potter, Alastor Moody, Moody's 'constant vigilance' is less a result of his encounters with criminals, and more about the reactions he's gotten when he's granted supposed friends a glimpse into certain aspects of his private life.

Harry Potter, any character (including OCs), the difficulties of being in a same sex relationship with a Muggle.

Harry Potter, any character from before the Trio Era, Character A does not want to fill the expected pure-blood role of having married heterosexual sex so that the couple can produce children. So A pretends to be a squib (or finds a way to become a squib) as a way out of this destiny. (You could use a canon squib character such as Mrs. Figg or Apollyon Pringle if you wanted. Filch might work too if you say his mail order magic course was part of his cover.)

Harry Potter, any character, A canon character uses spells/potions to transition from one sex to another.

Harry Potter, any character, coming out to your best friend

Harry Potter, any character, Figuring out you like girls too is surprisingly easy. Figuring out how you flirt with one is surprisingly hard.

Harry Potter, any character, No matter what character A's body supposedly says A is, and no matter what anybody says about A, A is neither straight nor human. A knows that they are really a werewolf/vampire [your choice of either creature] and a [your choice of orientation]. For now A has decided to experiment with polyjuice and creature hair so that they can see what it feels like to act in all ways like their true self without coming out about either of their two secrets, but A is wrestling with whether to make the physical change permanent and get bitten.

Harry Potter, any character, the aftermath of a homophobic assault in Diagon Alley

Harry Potter, any character, The highlights and pitfalls of deciding to present as their chosen gender all the way through Hogwarts.

Harry Potter, any character, There are better alternatives to hormones and surgery in the wizarding world - but it's still a long process. The experience of transitioning in the wizarding world.

Harry Potter, any character, there are magical ways to transition, but gatekeepers still control access to them.

Harry Potter, any character, When they were a child Caracter A accidentally outed one of their parents as a witch/wizard to a muggle relative. Character A didn't understand why his parents acted like it was such a big deal. Afterall it was just a slip of the tongue. However, now A has their own secret that A is struggling with whether to reveal. [The secret could be orientation, identity, a crush, whatever...] Suddenly A understands how large his or her mistake of years ago was and looks for a way to make amends.

Harry Potter, any character, With magic, there are many ways to change one's body; a trans character is determined to bring those avenues to muggle trans folk, in direct opposition of Ministry laws governing muggles/magic.

Harry Potter, any character, With magic, there are many ways to change one's body; a trans character is determined to bring those avenues to muggle trans folk, in direct opposition of Ministry laws governing muggles/magic.

Harry Potter, any character/s, reflection on how gender and sexuality interacts with House-based bullying (Everyone knows Slytherin boys are a bunch of queers!', 'Big butch Hufflepuff girls!', etc).

Harry Potter, any characters, A spell goes awry and the entire population of Hogwarts swaps gender. When they find a way to fix the spell, some people refuse to change back.

Harry Potter, any characters, Character A wants to know why Character B needs to make such a fuss about coming out. After all Character A doesn't blather on and on about being straight. Character B responds by casting a spell on A that makes A go silent (or still) and time they are about to use words (or actions) to comment on aspects of their own straightness. Could be played for laughs if you want.

Harry Potter, any characters, Every morning, he wakes up with another memory missing. He doesn't notice it's happening at first, but then the big ones start to go and soon he doesn't recognize the man he's living with anymore. It's definitely a curse, but very few think it's a hate crime, even though it seems the only memories the curse takes include the man everyone tells him he's in love with.

Harry Potter, any characters, I'd love to see a real British LGBT place or event from the 50's, 60's, 70's or even the 80's in a Harry Potter framework. An actual 60's muggle cafe that had a gay clientele? A real muggle novel or movie? A news event? I'm just hoping for some historical or sociological context. You might find ideas at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_LGBT_history_in_Britain

Harry Potter, any characters, someone finds strength to come out after they hear that Dumbledore was gay, too

Harry Potter, any characters, The Hogs Head pub may not be scenic, but it's always been discreet.

Harry Potter, any characters. A spell goes awry and the entire population of Hogwarts swaps gender. When they find a way to fix the spell, some people refuse to change back.

Harry Potter, any half-blood, quarter-blood (muggle grandparents), or muggleborn character, Character A gets so confused. Their orientation (or identity) breaks rules and expectations in the muggle world and in the wizarding world. Only it breaks DIFFERENT rules in each world! (The rules and expectations could be verbalized or they could be unspoken rules of the kind that everybody within a culture knows without ever stating them.)

Harry Potter, Any Hufflepuff (OC), asking the hat to go into Hufflepuff because they know they're different and that they'll find acceptance there, even if they can't count on it from their Muggle family. (prompter doesn't object to canon characters, but really loves OCs for this)

Harry Potter, any magical character, Character who grew up in a repressive family finally gets a chance to express and explore hir sexual orientation/gender identity and the LGBT community when ze gets to Hogwarts

Harry Potter, any muggleborn character, a muggleborn trans character, entranced by the possibilities of magic, sees no good reason why the (unfortunately conservative) wizarding world has not yet developed a workable method to permanently reassign gender, and so sets out to develop it hirself.

Harry Potter, any muggleborn character, when ze came to Hogwarts ze realises that in some things at least the Wizarding world is further ahead than the muggle one, in more ways than one, what does that mean for hir both there and in the muggle world? (Trans character)

Harry Potter, any nextgen character paired with any characters you want, Character A doesn't like sex, but in a BDSM context they like doing things they don't like. It makes sense to A, but nobody (or very few) people around them seem to get it, so sometimes they lie and say they like sex just to avoid being grilled by a potential BDSM top or dominant. (Take this beginning anywhere you like.)

Harry Potter, any of the Trio's kids, Coming out would be daunting enough if their parents' fame didn't mean they'd be in the national spotlight whether they want to or not.

Harry Potter, any older character, watching as the Muggle world changes in its regard to LGBT issues (from illegality to civil partnerships) while the wizarding world stays stuck in 'don't ask, don't tell' mode.

Harry Potter, any or original characters, Dumbledore's Army was such a rousing success that some students decide an LGBT support network in Hogwarts would also be a good idea.

Harry Potter, any pure-blood character in their late teens or early twenties (one possibility is a Draco/Harry story), Character A thinks their parents are being accepting because they politely greet the same-sex half-blood person who takes A out on a date. They mostly treat A's date how they've treated past dates. Sure A's parents might be a little stiff or cool towards the date, but A is still thrilled with the level of acceptance they are showing. Then A mentions the possibility of a date with an opposite-sex half-blood person, and the reaction is astounding. Possibilities include screaming, ultimatums, sobbing, a where-did-we-go-wrong speech, a your-father's-health-can't-take-this speech, etc.... Character A realizes that their parents' earlier acceptance was never actually there. To A's parents, only relationships that could produce children are real relationships. Anything else is just play. [Writers, take this beginning anywhere you want and go with any orientation you want for A. A could be bi, gay, lesbian, pansexual, etc...]

Harry Potter, any Slytherin, A House that is so devoted to keeping up appearances is... not the most welcoming place to be anything but straight and your assigned gender. On the surface, anyway. claimed by Tsukino Akume

Harry Potter, any Slytherin, A House that is so devoted to keeping up appearances is... not the most welcoming place to be anything but straight and your assigned gender. On the surface, anyway.

Harry Potter, any Weasley, Character fears his brothers' reactions when they find out that he's gay or bi.

Harry Potter, any, in a world where it's easy to change bodies with spells and potions, it's hard to make people believe that being trans* isn't just a temporary phase.

Harry Potter, Arthur Weasley, For all his interest in muggles, he’s completely baffled when he encounters their prejudiced attitude to gay and bisexual people.

Harry Potter, Bellatrix Black/Andromeda Black/Narcissa Black or some permutation thereof, They justify having a physical relationship by saying that it's practice for when they're married. But when they are married, they find that their husbands can't please them the way their sisters can.

Harry Potter, Charlie Weasley and Viktor Krum. Viktor meets Charlie Weasley at Fleur's wedding and realizes why he smells brimstone and burn ointment when he makes the amortensia potion.

Harry Potter, Charlie Weasley, being gay on the dragon reserve was easy. Being gay back in the UK proves to be harder, especially since he hasn't told his mum yet.

Harry Potter, Charlie Weasley, Charlie didn't go to Romania to get away from his family, but the distance has made it a lot easier to avoid explaining his love life to them. Lately, though, he's started to think about coming home - and coming out claimed by cj

Harry Potter, Charlie Weasley, How do you admit to your mum--who expects you to marry a nice girl--that you're asexual (or just don't swing that way)?

Harry Potter, Charlie Weasley, The Weasleys thought they had a daughter much earlier than they did. Charlotte disagreed.

Harry Potter, Dean Thomas, Dean is happy to find out wizards don't care about the colour of his skin and horrified to find out how much other bigotry exists instead.

Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy, the wizarding world isn't exactly accepting of homosexuality, but his parents stand by him

Harry Potter, Draco Malfoy(/Blaise Zabini), Bellatrix Lestrange spent the summer raping him when she had the time; it shouldn't have changed anything with him and Blaise, but his trained and innate responses are clashing with each other tremendously every time his boyfriend lays a hand on him.

Harry Potter, Draco/anyone, everything he ever did was in order to conceal his true desires.

Harry Potter, Draco/Ron, there's one thing Lucius Malfoy and Molly Weasley agree upon: their sons are as straight as they get.

Harry Potter, Dudley Dursley, He doesn't know what will upset his parents more--marrying someone who can do magic, or marrying a guy.

Harry Potter, Dudley Dursley, Now that Harry's no longer around to serve as a distraction, Dudley's afraid his parents may begin picking up on his own 'freakish' inclinations.

Harry Potter, Dumbledore, Grindelwald, two dangerous, gifted wizards meet and fall in love. How can two young wizards come out in a world that's not only homophobic but also anti-wizard?

Harry Potter, Either Fred and George, Padma and Parvati or Lorcan and Lysander, How do you tell the person who's most like you in all the world that you want to be a member of the opposite sex?

Harry Potter, Fred Weasley II, FtM - Fred's always been one of the boys claimed by Tsukino Akume

Harry Potter, Gellert Grindelwald, Grindelwald has been in loose alliance with the Nazis for the Greater Good; then he finds out what the Nazis do to people like him (and Albus).claimed by gamma_orionis

Harry Potter, George Weasley/Angelina Johnson/Lee Jordan, Love is what makes a family, and George, Angelina and Lee's just happens to have one mummy, two daddies, and one pair of very mischevious twins. How does a queer poly family fit into the wizarding world?

Harry Potter, George Weasley/Lee Jordan, Lee has been best friends with the Weasley twins from their first year, but now they're gone and he finds himself missing George in ways he doesn't miss Fred.

Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley-Potter, It's a bit frustrating to realize, after years of marriage and the births of three children that she would have much rather been with a woman all along.

Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley, Ginny finds the courage to come out to her brothers. Some are more understanding than others.

Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley, Ron seemed to judge her for dating boys, so Ginny is a bit worried about telling her brother that she'd have actually liked to date a few girls as well.

Harry Potter, Ginny Weasley/Harry Potter/Hermione Granger, as part of a happy triad, Hermione struggles with the common misconception that Harry has two girlfriends and is frustrated that her relationship with Ginny is rarely acknowledged.

Harry Potter, Gregory Goyle, after spending the 6th year polyjuiced into a girl, Goyle realises something, but it's only after Crabbe's death that she even begins to start dealing with the fact that she's trans and what it might mean to come out.

Harry Potter, Gryffindor as a house prizes masculinity. What's it like to be gay in the house of the brave?

Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Every time someone calls her the Boy Who Lived is like a punch to the gut. claimed by minkhollow

Harry Potter, Harry Potter, He'd hoped that by outing himself as asexual, the media attention on him would die down. He was wrong.

Harry Potter, Harry Potter, It isn't until he has children at Hogwarts that Harry realizes that he fell in love with Ginny because she's a female version of Ron. Trouble is, after all these years, settling for a version of the real thing is no longer enough.

Harry Potter, Harry Potter, Maybe all the time he spent noticing Tom's handsomeness, Sirius's handsomeness, Cedric's classic good looks, and Draco's gleaming white-blond hair should have clued him in earlier. Will he keep this secret like so many other things he'd rather not talk about, or will he be The Boy Who Came Out?

Harry Potter, Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy. Harry and Draco have become friends after the war, but this friendship also brings to the surface their long time attraction to each other. How their loved ones will react? How will it affect their relationship, and their own emotional side?

Harry Potter, Harry Potter/Ron Weasley, it never occurred to Ron that marrying Hermione would mean spending less time with Harry.

Harry Potter, Harry, Hermione, and anyone else at Hogwarts with Harry (at least one of whom is queer) five conversations about sex.

Harry Potter, Harry/Draco, their wedding is the media sensation of the decade. How does it feel for the participants?

Harry Potter, Harry/Ron and Hermione/Ginny, The marriages were just to cover up Harry and Ron's and Hermione and Ginny's relationships - what happens when this comes out in the Daily Prophet?

Harry Potter, Harry/Ron/Hermione, the wizarding world is slightly more accepting of bisexual polyamory than the muggle equivalent, but not that much.

Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Hermione is surprised by her parents' reaction when she comes out to them.

Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, the first thing Hermione does after coming out is to form a queer-themed campaign group

Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, while researching for a History of Magic project she discovers that the Wizarding World is surprisingly relaxed about transgender people and same-sex extramarital affairs, but absolutely draconian when it comes to a lack of interest in getting married to or having children with the opposite gender. This may lead to some problems in her future.

Harry Potter, Lee Jordan & Fred and George Weasley, Lee's had the twins' help hiding that he was born female, but now puberty's hit and he can't hide it as easily. The twins come up with a way to keep his secret. (FtM Lee)

Harry Potter, Lily Evans, Lily isn't sure whether Petunia is more offended by her witchcraft or her bisexuality. She only knows that she can't stop being either magical or bi, even if it would be less risky.

Harry Potter, Lily Luna Potter, The Wizarding World has always been socially conservative, and--thanks to the small population and the many war deaths--is now both overtly and covertly stressing the importance of marriage and children. Lily, now grown-up, is perfectly willing to marry her girlfriend and eventually adopt a child or two, but that's not what her family or her fellow wizards had in mind.

Harry Potter, Lily Potter (II), The Wizarding World has always been socially conservative, and--thanks to the small population and the many war deaths--is now both overtly and covertly stressing the importance of marriage and children. Lily, now grown-up, is perfectly willing to marry her girlfriend and eventually adopt a child or two, but that's not what her family or her fellow wizards had in mind

Harry Potter, Lucius and Narcissa Malfoy, They never talk about it, but they're both greatly relieved Draco was a boy; between Narcissa's preference for women and Lucius' total disinterest in sex, neither of them wanted to go through that again. claimed by gamma_orionis

Harry Potter, Luna Lovegood, being LGBT was just one more thing they teased hir for.

Harry Potter, Luna Lovegood, Luna comes out as bisexual and encounters biphobia. She finds understanding in another out character.

Harry Potter, Luna, Luna never really was sure what the big fuss about being GLBT was - not until she has to defend one of her loved ones.

Harry Potter, Luna, Luna sometimes runs into trouble because she doesn't think in term of gender divisions or really understand them. So the all (or mostly) heterosexul mating dance that is the Yule Ball puzzles her greatly. She had thought each house was subdivided into seperate dorm rooms somewhat arbitrarily. So why is it that who you are expected to ask to the dance is limited by which dorm room they live in? (Referring to divisions of Ravenclaw girls dorm, Ravenclaw boys, Hufflepuff girls, etc...) It's up to the writer whether Luna figures out that the division is based on a couple arbitrary physical features.

Harry Potter, Narcissa Malfoy, she loves her husband dearly, but she's never been attracted to men.

Harry Potter, Narcissa Malfoy, The House of Black is used to getting what they want - but what happens when what you want isn't the acceptable path for a pureblood lady to follow?

Harry Potter, Neville Longbottom; the reason Neville is so good at Herbology and so bad at romance is because plants don't care if you're not sexually attracted to them, and people, it seems, do.

Harry Potter, Nymphadora Tonks is bigender, but can only express this in secret - and, later, in undercover ops.

Harry Potter, Nymphadora Tonks, As a bisexual, Tonks has a difficult time explaining to her lesbian friends why she wants to get married, especially knowing that her friends can't.

Harry Potter, Nymphadora Tonks, being a Metamorphagus, Tonks doesn't think of hirself as male or female: zie's both

Harry Potter, Nymphadora Tonks, Tonks can change sex as easily as she can change her nose, which is invaluable to the Order's war effort. While she's working undercover as a man, she gets romantically involved with a male Muggle, forcing her to evaluate her own gender identity...as well as how the Muggle world's attitude toward gay rights compares to the Wizarding world's.

Harry Potter, Nymphadora Tonks, What nobody knows about Tonks is that she wasn't born with all the right bits, so when she discovered she was a metamorphmagus she pushed it harder than any had before.

Harry Potter, Nymphadora Tonks; Tonks comes out as lesbian or bisexual to her parents.

Harry Potter, Nymphadora Tonks/OFC; Sweethearts after "high school" supporting each other as they move into Wizarding adulthood.

Harry Potter, Nymphadora Tonks/Remus Lupin, Tonks loves Lupin. Lupin loves Tonks. They discover that they both prefer sex when Tonks is in male form. Tonks reevalutes zir gender identity, Lupin realizes he's bisexual.

Harry Potter, Padma and Parvati Patil, Their House isn't the only difference between them.

Harry Potter, Parvati and Padma Patil, They're not scarily similar twins the way Fred and George Weasley are, but they do have very similar taste in girls.

Harry Potter, Parvati or Padma Patil or Dean Thomas or Blaise Zabini (or anyone else who might fit), They're already a minority as one of Hogwarts' few non-white students. Is it worth coming out as LGBT and adding yet another minority to the list?

Harry Potter, Percy/Oliver, Percy dances with Oliver at Ginny's wedding so he doesn't have to do the whole coming out speech. He's worried about his brothers' reactions but Molly is the most upset because he didn't trust her enough to confide in her.

Harry Potter, Petunia and Lily Evans, Petunia Evans hated her sister ever since Lily laughed and told her that there was no magic spell to make these strange feelings go away.

Harry Potter, Petunia Dursley, the reason why Petunia hated Lily so much was because Lily was allowed to be different. Petunia had to keep all her differences inside for appearances sake. (Petunia is closeted lesbian or trans.)

Harry Potter, possibly Merope/Riddle Sr, The Harry Potter universe has some very powerful love potions. How do you make sense of your life if you intellectually know you were once a different orientation, yet your feelings don't match your memories? Which one is real? And do you give different answers to the question at different points in your life? If you want you can use the story of how Merope Gaunt fed Tom Riddle Sr. love potions. There was a before (when he was not attracted to women), a middle period (when he was emotionally and sexually attracted to female Merope), and an after (when he was no longer attracted to women). What is his internal story at each stage?

Harry Potter, Remus Lupin, Remus thought life was hard enough, being a werewolf, but when he realized he was gay, too, he sometimes wondered if it would be easier in the Muggle world.

Harry Potter, Remus Lupin, The fact that he has a thing for Tonks doesn't invalidate his relationship with Sirius. And the fact that he's had insecurities in both relationships has nothing to do with his sexuality.

Harry Potter, Remus Lupin/Sirius Black, Sirius left home because his family kicked him out when they found out about him and Remus.

Harry Potter, Remus, Sirius, Tonks, Tonks seduces Remus Lupin by shapeshifting and turning into Sirius Black. Does this make her transsexual? Do shapeshifters have to pick a gender?

Harry Potter, Remus/Sirius, Remus thinks they should just tell Harry about their relationship, but Sirius is worried that Molly Weasley will use it as an excuse to further limit his access to Harry.

Harry Potter, Remus/Sirius, The day they told Harry about their relationship.

Harry Potter, Remus/Sirius/Harry, No matter what Molly says, this has nothing to do with Harry looking like James. James was completely straight, for one thing.

Harry Potter, Remus/Tonks, Remus wouldn't have married Tonks if she hadn't gotten pregnant by a person or persons unknown and he hadn't felt obligated to do the honorable thing before considering the problems of being a gay werewolf married to a straight human. Tonks doesn't know how to tell Remus that her 'lovelorn' behavior was a yearlong act to convince the Death Eaters that she'd lost her powers, that she knew all about Remus's lover (or lovers) and that she has a girlfriend in Chelsea.

Harry Potter, Ron Weasley. Ron gets crushes on both his male and female friends at various points in his life, and doesn’t have a lot of guidance or support available to him at Hogwarts.

Harry Potter, Severus Snape, Marauder era: Snape loved Lily because she was the only one who never judged him for being queer. After the 'Mudblood' incident', the Marauders now have new arsenal for their abuse.

Harry Potter, Severus/Kingsley, Coming out and living well. Postwar Snape survives and opens a pub/meeting spot for lgbt folks both magical and non. He goes into this venture with the help of a man who is also attempting to woo him, Kingsley Shacklebolt.

Harry Potter, Sirius Black, never looking back at all the girls ogling him is less to seem indifferent and more because their glances don't register.

Harry Potter, Sirius Black/Remus Lupin, AU, Some people don't think that a gay couple should be raising a little boy. When little Harry innocently tells a reporter that the name is short for Harriet, the criticism becomes a firestorm, and the two men have to fight to keep their family together

Harry Potter, Teddy Lupin, no one things anything of it when Teddy's hair or his nose changes, so why are they having so much trouble accepting this? (MtF!Teddy)

Harry Potter, Teddy Lupin, no one thinks anything of it when Teddy's hair or nose changes, so why are they having so much trouble accepting this? (MtF!Teddy) claimed by ang_the_adverse

Harry Potter, Victoire Weasley, Victoire's tired of the assumptions and innuendo surrounding her Veela heritage - which may have something to do with her reluctance to acknowledge her pansexuality. 


Harry Potter, Xenophilius Lovegood, Xenophilius has always told Luna that her mother died in a magical accident. As she grows up, he wonders if he'll ever be able to tell her that he IS her mother.

Harry Potter; Hermione Granger; she's used to seeing things in black and white, but as she grows older, she has to deal with her own sexuality being more nuanced and complicated than she thought. claimed by Norwegianpornfaerie

Harry Potter: Nymphadora Tonks/Remus Lupin, Tonks loves Lupin. Lupin loves Tonks. They discover that they both prefer sex when Tonks is in male form. Tonks reevalutes zir gender identity, Lupin realizes he's bisexual.



Haven, Audrey Parker, Audrey learns some things about her previous incarnations that makes her reevaluate her own sexuality.



Hawaii Five-0 (2010 series), Danny Williams, just because he was married to a woman doesn't mean he's straight. Tell the story of Danny's decision to come out.

Hawaii Five-0, Danny, Steve, It's not that he was afraid that Steve was going to be a dick about it, but...okay, maybe he was a little bit afraid. In Danny's defense, coming out to co-workers has never gone well for him.

Hawaii Five-0, Kono, Grace, Kono supporting and mentoring Grace with regard to her sexuality. (Both women are queer.)

Hawaii Five-0: Danny Williams. He doesn't understand how people can just find others attractive - there has to be a personal connection first, for him, anyway.

Hellsing: Heinkel Wolfe. Heinkel's body is intersex, and ze usually presents as male, more for the accompanying privileges than out of an internal sense of gender identity. Then a mission requires hir to pass as female, leading to a few surprising revelations about hirself.

Hellsing: Integra(/Alucard, Seras, or others). Integra's famed virginity isn't a triumph of the will; she's just plain not interested in sex. But she does kind of have a thing for ordering people (regardless of gender) around.

Hellsing: Seras, Alucard. When Seras first meets Alucard's teenage-girl form, and what advice Alucard gives about vampire sex and gender.

Hellsing: Seras/Pip. Now that Pip is sharing a body and soul with the woman he loves, it's not messing with his sense of gender at all. But he totally wants to see if they can pull off lesbian mindsex some time.

His Dark Materials, any character with a same-sex daemon, What does having a same-sex daemon mean about your gender or sexual orientation, if anything? Or does it just mean that people assume things? What is it like to grow up with everyone knowing you have a same-sex daemon?claimed by thecolourclear and hopefulnebula

His Dark Materials, Lyra Belacqua, She was the one who said they should try and move on, but being with women means she'll never really risk falling in love with someone who isn't Will. Or so Lyra keeps telling herself. But the argument's becoming less and less convincing...

His Dark Materials, the witches (canon or original characters); The witches sometimes take comfort in each other's company.



Hogan's Heroes, Andrew Carter, He's not stupid as all that. He likes women too. He just doesn't get why the other fellas are so obsessed with getting together with them.

Homestuck, Bro Strider, queer parenting at a young age. Bro Strider is flying solo, raising a little boy who isn't exactly his. He's not sure which part the authorities have the biggest problem with: the fact that he's a young single dad - so weird - or that he occasionally hooks up with dudes.

Homestuck, Dave and Dirk, Dave has known he was queer for a while now, but he always hesitated telling Bro for fear of how he would react. Imagine his surprise when he meets up with Dirk and finds out he's queer as well.

Homestuck, Dave Strider, coming out to everyone as trans is hard- some of it goes well, some of it really doesn't.

Homestuck, Dave Strider, Dave is all talk and no action. (Asexual!Dave)

Homestuck, Dave Strider, hearing your best friend say "I'm not a homosexual" in the same tone of voice he'd use to say "I don't have rabies" wears on a guy. Even if he doesn't know he's bashing you, it still hurts.

Homestuck, Dave Strider, Seeing his brother swapping spit with a guy who looks almost exactly like his best friend is very disturbing, though it takes him a while to work out exactly why.

Homestuck, Dave Strider, You'd expect the world's most ironic dude to struggle with his own queer identity but Dave is just as chill about this as he is about everything else.

Homestuck, Dirk Strider and/or Roxy Lalonde, how the hell do you figure out gender at the end of the world when all you have is some pop culture and three friends who really aren't up on this stuff themselves?

Homestuck, Eridan Ampora, he says he's bi because that's what's expected of him, but he's really not interested in filling a concupiscent quadrant with a woman.

Homestuck, Eridan; he's asexual, and is pursuing his quadrants so strongly out of fear for his life, but everyone assumes he's just trying to get laid. Probably works better as an AU where he lived because just barely thirteen is probably a bit young for this.

Homestuck, Jade Harley, after the game Jade has to try and integrate into society after living alone her entire life. Most people seem to have a very different take on who she's allowed to be than she does. (Any queer Jade, gender or sexuality)

Homestuck, Jake English, Jake turns out to be aromantic after all the fuss.

Homestuck, Jake Harley, Growing up with minimal human contact and mostly taking his societal cues from movies has given Jake some very strange ideas about what it means to be non-straight.

Homestuck, John Egbert, John is shocked to realize that he's queer...but after everything else they've all gone through, he's the only one.

Homestuck, Karkat Vantas, one of the reasons Karkat is so glad that he's no longer on Alternia is because he didn't want to fill a pail with anyone. Now he doesn't have to.

Homestuck, Karkat Vantas, the humans' obsession with sexuality is weird. Weirder still is how Karkat, after learning a bunch of the human terms for different kinds of sexuality, finally finds one that fits him. [Karkat's identity up to the author.]

Homestuck, Rose and John, John has never seen any reason to question his heterosexuality. Rose, who has identified as a lesbian since she was young, always felt similarly. But now they're both starting to realise that boys are actually kinda hot, and neither are talking it all that well.

Homestuck, Rose Lalonde, three years on the meteor surrounded by trolls gave her a very different perspective on gender and sexuality.

Homestuck, Rose Lalonde/Jade Harley, Rose identifies as gay and Jade identifies as genderqueer. How they navigate that.

Homestuck, Rose Lalonde/Kanaya Maryam, Rose is comfortable with being a lesbian and she loves Kanaya, but when they're finally ready to have sex, she has no idea how she feels about Kanaya's anatomy.claimed by hamimi_fk

Homestuck, Roxy Lalonde, Roxy has trouble figuring out her sexuality; she thinks everyone has a neat label to use, but she just can't find one that fits her.

House, Chase/any, he got thrown out of seminary school because he was found with another boy

House, Chris Taub, Taub has always admired beauty in all its forms, especially the human body. That's why he went into plastic surgery, after all. This fascination with beauty led him to realize his bisexuality as a teenager. However, he forced himself back in the closet upon meeting Rachel (he was going to be with her, so it didn't matter that he liked men too), and it isn't until taking the job with House that it begins to resurface. He tries to quash any sense of closeness with Kutner to hide an attraction he won't admit, and Thirteen notices and calls him out on it.

House, Greg House, He's never been one to abide by social norms

House, Gregory House, House plays the pronoun game, not out of any desire to be closeted, but because he loves to toy with his team.

House, Thirteen, College provided her freedom from her past and her dead mother, but mostly freedom to date whomever she wanted without her father knowing. But every time she went home she felt more and more uncomfortable lying to her father about her girlfriends and going back into the closet. How did she deal with it?

House, Thirteen, Thirteen wonders why people think that her liking sex has anything to do with her bisexuality.

House, Thirteen/Cameron, AU How would things have been different at work if Thirteen had set her sights on Cameron instead of Foreman?

House, Thirteen/Cuddy, 'I wish I could be who you are, Remy.'

Inspector Montalbano (TV series), Giuseppe Fazio, in all the years he's worked for Salvo, he's never once thought about coming out to him until a case hits too close to home, forcing his hand. Salvo turns out to be more compassionate and understanding than Fazio had anticipated.

Inspector Montalbano (TV series), Salvo Montalbano/Mimí Augello, they fight like a married couple for a damn good reason. They're just not going to tell anyone what that reason is because it isn't worth their jobs to come out.

Jane Austen, Jane Bennett, Lizzie Bennett, Miss Bingley. Miss Bingley has traveled among people and knows who and what she is.

How will they be able to correct this misunderstanding in a world where most people prefer to ignore the crime of homosexuality, much less speak about it?

Jeeves & Wooster, Bertie Wooster/Reginald Jeeves, through a disastrous misunderstanding, Jeeves believes Bertie has discovered that he is a homosexual, and is firing him for it. Bertie, however, only meant to confide in him about his own homosexuality.

Jeeves & Wooster, Reginald Jeeves (or Bertie Wooster/Reginald Jeeves), he is a man and a gentleman, in every sense of the word... except the purely physical. The term 'intersex' has yet to be invented, but Jeeves is well read, and knows perfectly well what he is. No one must ever know.

Jeeves & Wooster, Reginald Jeeves, many is the time he has so very narrowly avoided scandal, surviving only by his wits. He is certain, however, that his luck will run out, one day.

Jeeves & Wooster, Reginald Jeeves, Sexual orientation is an arbitrary concern for a gentleman's personal gentleman; his leisure time is restricted and his options limited. That doesn't mean Jeeves is straight.

Bertie, meanwhile, is deeply in love with Jeeves but hesitant to endanger him by beginning an illegal sexual liaison.

Jeeves and Wooster/Jeeves PG Wodehouse, Florence Craye (and any others), Florence was no stranger to the activities of the Bloomsbury scene, but never considered her preferences.

Les Miserables, Courfeyrac, he's charming to everyone because he always means it.

Les Miserables, Eponine, if he had a man's body, he could stand by Marius as a brother and be taken seriously.

Les Miserables, Gavroche/any of the Amis, is it just a puppy crush if he's willing to die for it?

Les Miserables, Grantaire, he stares after women so people don't see who he really wants to look at. Usually it works.

Les Miserables, Jehan/Bahorel, every time Jehan laughs Bahorel wonders whether one of the others will figure out who his "mistress" really is

Les Miserables, Joly/Bossuet/Musichetta, the only stroke of luck Bossuet ever had was finding two people who accept him because they feel the same way he does.

Les Miserables, Montparnasse; Montparnasse hacks out an identity for themselves with a vengeance (whatever that may be).

Les Miserables, Valjean/Javert, post-Seine AU: this is a kind of love that neither of them have ever known, and it is not easy to learn

Les Miserables: Eponine wasn't dressed as a boy at the barricades for disguise; he was coming out of disguise for the first time. He couldn't bear to be dishonest at that moment -- especially when he could be dead in a few hours' time.

Les Miserables: Jean Valjean/Javert - Valjean pulls Javert back just as he's about to jump. Valjean has to come to terms with why he couldn't let Javert do it. Javert has to come to terms with the full reason that he was jumping in the first place.

Les Miserables: Marius has this idea that if he acts really really excited and totally head-over-heels about a girl he'll start believing it soon. This also involves trying to believe it means nothing that he actually is really really excited and totally head-over-heels about Enjolras. None of it is working.



Leverage, Alec Hardison/Eliot Spencer(/Parker), Alec doesn't do anything his Nana said don't do. He's not sure what she'd think about this.

Leverage, any character, before you had a team, bisexuality was the smartest business decision. Now that your life's not in danger, how do you figure out if it's right for you?

Leverage, any character, Five lies s/he wouldn't have told if s/he'd been straight

Leverage, any character, Maybe the team will never be entirely honest, but this doesn’t have to be a secret anymore

Leverage, any character, travelling all over the world, always working alone - picking one label and sticking to it didn't really seem to matter. Now they're supposed to be one person, all of the time, and maybe this is going to take some thought.

Leverage, Eliot Spencer(/Parker/Alec Hardison), Eliot's tough enough that he can usually handle any problem that comes their way, if Hardison can't get rid of it first. But he's never really dealt with homophobia before either.

Leverage, Eliot Spencer/Alec Hardison/Parker/Sophie Devereaux/Nate Ford, How do thieves negotiate the idea of possession in a poly relationship?

Leverage, Eliot, Eliot has slept with a lot of models, he never said they were all women.

Leverage, Eliot, Some days he understands women, some days he doesn't. This usually coincides with whether he feels like a woman that day.

Leverage, Eliot(/Parker/Hardison), Eliot had lots of sex because you couldn’t pick someone up at a bar and ask if you could hold them for an hour. Now that he’s met Hardison, who loves computers more than people, and Parker, who… well he hasn’t really figured her out yet. But maybe they can make this a win/win/win.

Leverage, Eliot/Hardison/Parker, Hardison gets annoyed when Eliot takes issue with them touching during sex. Parker can't always be in the middle like a barrier.

Leverage, Elliot Spencer, Elliot is FtM. How does he deal with Hardison and Parker finding out his history? claimed by error_page

Leverage, Elliot, Elliot isn't used to being around people who encourage him to be himself. (Elliot is G/B/T)

Leverage, Hardison/Elliot/Parker, Hardison is surprised when, after a post-crime celebration, Elliot kisses both him *and* Parker. He thought he was the only queer on the team

Leverage, Hardison/Elliot/Parker, How can Hardison bring home his partners-in-crime - and his male and female lovers - to meet his nana? claimed by M14Mouse

Leverage, Hardison/Parker, He’d be lying if he said he didn’t want to sleep with her, but he loves her anyway. Asexual!Parker.

Leverage, Hardison/Parker, heteromantic-asexual!Hardison/aromantic-bisexual!Parker, Hardison is crazy about Parker, but he doesn't want to have sex. Parker is okay with having sex, but she's never really figured out how relationships are supposed to work.

Leverage, Nate, He was alright with Maggie being bisexual, but he doesn't know if he feels the same with Sophie

Leverage, Nate/Eliot, Nate spent all his life trying to be the good Catholic boy from Boston, even if he knew it wasn't really who he was; he had the wife the kid and the great job... Now that it's all fallen apart, how does he find the strength to finally be himself, especially when the person he's fallen for is as deeply in the closet as he is?

Leverage, Nate/Eliot, Nate spent all his life trying to be the good Catholic boy from Boston, even if he knew it wasn't really who he was; he had the wife the kid and the great job... Now that it's all fallen apart, how does he find the strength to finally be himself, especially when the person he's fallen for is as deeply in the closet as he is?

Leverage, Parker, Parker has always been a tomboy. Now she wants Eliot to teach her how to be a man.

Leverage, Parker, Parker never understood why Eliot thought it was funny she said crime was better than sex. (Asexual Parker)

Leverage, Parker, she doesn't get why it's such a big deal to the team that she got caught making out with a girl. Eliot's done it before, she's made out with Hardison - why should this be different?

Leverage, Parker(/?), Parker doesn't understand why the team (well, Hardison and Eliot anyway) can't seem to figure out that she likes girls too

Leverage, Parker(/Alec Hardison/Eliot Spencer), Sex is sometimes a useful tool, and she likes the kissing, but Parker really isn't interested in sex for its own sake. The others seem to think this has something to do with her childhood - she tries to explain to them that she's not damaged or broken. She knows what she wants and sex isn't a part of it. (It doesn't mean she doesn't love them all the same.)

Leverage, Parker/Sophie, Parker's always known she was pansexual, while Sophie's just finally figuring out who she really is, how do they forge a relationship together while living on the run and going from job to job and con to con

Leverage, Sophie and Nate, Sophie's favorite part of the flirting dance she does with Nate is that they both know nothing will come of it. (Sophie is a lesbian, Nate is gay) 
Leverage, Sophie Devereaux, the characters she's created have various orientations and Sophie Devereaux, who she's been for so long, was firmly heterosexual. But while there are many things about Sophie that she is or wants to be, that isn't one of them.
Leverage, Tara, Tara is having enough trouble gaining trust and acceptance from Nathan's team; she really doesn't want them to know she used to be a man. Problem is, if information exists in electronic form anywhere, Hardison will eventually find it

Leverage, Sophie Devereaux, Sophie is ftm, and has to choose between being himself and being read as an attractive woman capable of manipulating any man into doing his bidding.

Leverage, Sophie, Long before she met Nate the first time, Sophie was actually Steven.

Leverage, Sophie, Nate’s the only man who ever accepted Sophie’s gender identity without the possibility of a payout.

Lewis, James Hathaway & Robbie Lewis, James tells himself Lewis is too old-fashioned to deal with him coming out, but the truth is he's the one who's really struggling to deal with it.



Lewis, James Hathaway: He just wants to be left alone on this issue. Is that so much to ask?



Lie To Me, any character(s), a suspect in a case says that they're LGBT as part of their alibi, even though they're really straight/cis. How does an LGBT employee of the Lightman Group respond to this?

Lie To Me, any character(s), if being abused is something that may make someone become a natural at reading emotions, what does being closeted do to a person?

Lie to Me, any member of the Lightman Group, On trying to be closeted in an environment where everyone is an expert lie detector. Bonus points if the character concocts all sorts of schemes (e.g. drugs, expertly-constructed and practiced lies, etc.) to stay closeted, only to find out in the end that everyone knew all along.

Lie to Me, any member of the Lightman Group, Someone they're interviewing for a case claims not to be LGBT (which is important to the case in some way), but one member of the Lightman Group can tell otherwise. How does this character's own LGBT identity affect hir feelings and ultimate decision re: whether/to whom/etc. to tell the truth?

Lie To Me, Cal Lightman/any man, explaining this to his daughter is not going as well as expected (Bonus points if it's Cal/Richard Castle (Castle) and one daughter takes it well were the other doesn't.)

Lie to Me, Eli Loker, coming out as gay to the rest of the Lightman Group actually is a big deal - none of them figured it out.

Lie To Me, Eli Loker, having a policy of radical honesty doesn't mean that Loker has to be out at work, does it?

Lie To Me, Emily Lightman, Emily's not ready to come out to her parents, but she's well-acquainted with the futility of hiding anything important from her father.

Lie To Me, Gillian Foster, taking her statement of 'I was that [basketball-obsessed] little boy' literally, what was her childhood like? What does it mean to her now?

Little Women (Louisa May Alcott), Beth March, She never cared to find herself a husband.

Little Women series, Nan Harding and Jo Bhaer , Knowing that Jo was a tomboy and scamp, Nan consults with her about the impossibility of living a traditionally female life (either because she's romantically interested in women or because he's a man, or both).

Little Women, Jo Bhaer, Just days before Jo March's wedding to Professor Bhaer, she confesses to her brothers-in-law John and Laurie the real reason she's so nervous -- she's actually a he, and has never told anyone.

Now all three have to come to terms with Jo's identity and inability to tell them before he becomes a wife, and Fritz realizes that he doesn't care.

Little Women, Jo March, Jo was very serious when she told her family she was the man of the house, though they never really believed her. But everyone said she would never publish a book and she managed to do that, so why should she believe that this is impossible?

Little Women, Jo March, She really loves Laurie, she truly does, but not the way he wants her to.

Little Women, Professor Bhaer, He understood Jo's conflict before Jo did; after all, he'd had an extra decade of experience being a gay man.

Marvel (any verse), Steve Rogers, He's sure people mean well, but he doesn't actually need help in "dealing" or "coming out" just because he is more private than some of his teammates. (Steve's queer identity is up to the author.)

Marvel (X-Men - any version), Jean-Paul Beaubier, He wasn't always an out and proud gay mutant superhero. At first he tried to stay inside his closet. But trying to remember who he could be gay in front of, but not a mutant, or vice versa, or neither, soon caused him to crash and burn in spectacular fashion.

Marvel Comics (Comics or movie), Any member of Team X (Wolverine's old black ops team), A mission required them to cross dress. The photos are a bit of a revelation.

Marvel Comics (Howlin' Commandoes) Pinky Perton, the Howlin' commandoes look after their own.

Marvel Comics (Invaders) Roger thinking back on how things have changed and how they have not.

Marvel Comics (Invaders) Union Jack/Destroyer, The British LGBT movement

Marvel Comics (Invaders), Bucky Barnes & Invaders, Between his typical middle class, religious upbringing, and his days in the military, Bucky learned from an early age that being queer is not ok. This causes not only issues with Brian and Roger who don't hide their relationship from the other Invader, and Toro who has a badly hidden crush on him, but also himself as he struggles with his feelings for Steve and Toro (please have Bucky be bisexual or pansexual in this- also given the nature of this fest, of course Bucky moving toward self-acceptance is what is being looked for here)

Marvel Comics (Invaders), Jim Hammond (Human Torch I)tries to come to terms with his asexuality in a world that seems primarily motivated by sex, and tries to decide if he thinks it's a flaw in his design, or simply who he is.

The perils of being outed while very much in the public eye, particularly when the media doesn't have a good relationship with you to begin with.

Marvel Comics, Bucky Barnes, having missed the gay rights movement altogether, Bucky adjusts to being LGBT in a post-Stonewall America.

Marvel Comics, Bucky Barnes, Of the many problems that haunt Bucky from his days as the Winter Soldier, one lingering one is his handlers attempt to modify his attraction toward men. This leads to him and Steve (and possibly other heroes, though not the focus) taking a very vocal stance against any sort of conversion therapy aimed at "curing" queerness (assumption is current Bucky/Natasha, Past Bucky/Steve, possibly current Bucky/Steve/Natasha if that works for the fic).

Marvel Comics, Bucky Barnes, That they couldn't change his bisexuality, no matter how hard they tried, was the one act of defiance Winter Soldier was able to show.claimed by comradecourt

Marvel Comics, Northstar + another character, Northstar is openly gay, but he knows another mutant/other mutants who are closeted. He talks with one of these character (your choice, any gender) in a non-shippy way, about his choice to be out.

Marvel Comics, Northstar, being called a walking stereotype bothers him far less than it probably should.

Marvel comics, Quentin Quire; for once in their life Quentin's not trying to make a capital-S Statement or strike a rebellious pose by coming out, but the hard part is getting other people to believe it.

Marvel comics, Quentin Quire; if you get to choose your own name, why in God's name would you keep it up with the alliteration?

Marvel Comics, Reed Richards/Sue Storm, Reed may be asexual, but he loves his wife and is willing to do anything that makes her happy; he just worries that she needs a spontaneous passion that he can't provide.

Marvel Comics, Sabretooth, because Logan doesn't have pig tails to pull, and he didn't notice when he tried being nice to him

Marvel Comics, Sam Wilson/Steve Rogers, An issue of the Avengers tells us that Sam's parents were very open and tolerant towards most things. Likewise, Steve is pretty accepting of differences. Despite their other differences and conflicts, that makes the actual getting together go pretty smoothly. So for Sam and Steve, it is both amusing and irritating when people automatically assume otherwise.

Marvel Comics, Sharon Carter/Natasha Romanoff, the first person Sharon came out to was her aunt and rolemodel. Natasha didn't have anything like that experience. It doesn't affect their relationship at all.

Marvel Comics, Steve Rogers, Drag balls and cross dressing before, during and after the war. claimed by cat_13145

Marvel Comics, Steve Rogers, the younger generation's attempts to lecture him on the proper way of being queer is both sweet and intrusive.

Marvel Comics, Steve Rogers, Yes, Namor's haughty revelation to that homophobic politician that the heroes of WWII frequently had homosexual orgies did shut them up. But now they have to deal with the actual fall-out.

Marvel Comics, Steve Rogers/any, his boyfriend's attempts to read up on Steve's time period are sweet, really. But Steve wishes that people in the 21st century would realize that what historians have captured of queer culture in the 1930s and 1940s is an incomplete picture and does not reflect the queer culture of everyone who lived then - including Steve.

Marvel Comics, Steve Rogers/author's choice, being gay was completely illegal in Steve's time. He's still adjusting to the present day.

Marvel Comics, Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Steve has always maintained that his sexual orientation -- and his relationship with Tony -- is a private matter. But with so many states passing laws against gay rights, he decides he's morally obligated to go public. Tony's not so sure it's a good idea.

Marvel Comics, Tony Stark, Tony is bisexual but has never been open about it due to his father's homophobia, which caused a lot of abuse when Howard suspected something was going on between Tony and Tiberius Stone. Tony struggles through adolescence and adulthood, trying to keep one side of his sexuality hidden and fight the feelings he has for some of the men in his life.

Marvel Comics, Tony Stark, Tony likes sex, you feel good and makes someone else feel good and there is usually touching (Tony loves touching), but sometimes he wonders why everyone seems to treat it as the be all end all of human interaction.

Marvel Comics, Toro Raymond, It's easy to look back on the past and think that being queer in the middle of War was terrible, and in a lot of ways it was. But the open acceptance of Toro's loving men and women almost makes (current queer teen character of your choice) jealous.

Marvel Comics, Toro Raymond, Toro has been living with Andy for a very long time, when Andy begins to transition to Anne. They're both determined to still make the relationship work though.

Marvel Comics, Toro Raymond, When people find out that he and Bucky were together during the war, even his closest allies assume Toro's wife was a "beard." They're wrong, but that doesn't make him straight or confused, either. (Toro is Bi.)

Marvel Comics, Toro, when he heard what Jeff Macey (the patriot) had to say, it was the first time he realised that it was O.K. to like other men, that your friends could still support you.

Marvel Comics, Thomas "Toro" Raymond and Anne Raymond, Toro was gay and Anne was a lesbian, and their marriage was one between friends to get nosy government spies off Toro's back. Now that Toro's come back from the dead, Anne's with a woman and Toro is free to find love with a man.

Marvel Comics , X-men (Comicverse) Wanda Langowski She died a man, came back a woman and is realizing that she's more comfortable being Wanda then she ever was being Walter. It hurts that Jeanne-Marie rejected her and she's not sure what to make of her attraction to Jean-Paul.

Marvel Comics , X-men (Comicverse)Jean-Paul Beaubier, any character Jean-Paul has referred to himself in canon as a "freak among the freaks" but he also has a strong personality and refuses to back down about what he believes in.

Marvel Comics, X-Men, Anole (Victor Borkowski), Santo "outs" him. Everyone had figured it out already and the only embarrassment is that Santo hadn't.

Marvel Comics , X-Men, Jean-Paul Beaubier, He wasn't always an out and proud gay mutant superhero. At first he tried to stay inside his closet.

Marvel Comics , Young Avengers, Any, The team discovers Cap is queer and closeted. They react.




MCU; any/all Asgardians; orientation is a slightly different question for an alien species that lives for centuries

MCU; any SHIELD agent; traditionally, not straight agents were barred from the highest security clearances. But SHIELD has always circuited the rules, and outright broken them, when they saw fit.

Marvel Movies (Avengers ) , Tony & Thor, Tony's always been known as a ladies man. Nobody expect Thor to be just his type... not even him.

Marvel Movies (Avengers ) : Tony Stark, Steve Rogers. Steve doesn't have a clue what to call this thing between him and Tony, but that doesn't stop him from wanting whatever it is.

Marvel Movies (Avengers movie verse), assorted characters, the clash between Thor's classical Norse views, Captain America's forties values, and the modern world's values--and how that affects the LGBT members of the team.

Marvel Movies (Avengers) Bruce/Tony Bruce doesn’t think it’s safe for him to date and he’s always assumed he was straight, except the more time he spends with Tony the more attractive Bruce finds him. Tony’s bisexual, but only out to the friends he trusts. How do they make it work?

Marvel Movies (Avengers) Clint Barton, Hawkeye Finding to the words to explain that attraction to him isn’t about looks or personality, but it’s about his ability to trust the other person.

MCU; Christine Everheart; even feminists who went to Brown can take a while to sort out their sexuality/identity. [author's choice]

MCU; Clint Barton; contrary to popular opinion, Clint's visits to his favourite gay bar? For friends, beer, cards, and playing pool. Hook-ups are mostly for other places.

MCU; Clint Barton & Natasha Romanoff; friendship is when he knows that she doesn't judge him over being ace, and when she knows that he's safe to admit that she is lesbian.

MCU: Clint Barton; being a guy isn't a 24/7 thing.claimed by error_page

MCU: Clint Barton; Everyone else thinks Clint is a guy. Clint doesn't really bother correcting them.claimed by lar_laughs

MCU; Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff; just because they are in a romantic relationship with each other doesn't mean that they aren't queer.

Marvel Movies (Avengers) Phil Coulson and Pepper Potts They talk about everything. He’s dating Clint and Natasha while Pepper is dating Tony who is also dating Rhodey. They share the ups and down of their relationships, give advice and support to one another.

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Clint & Natasha, they are both aromantic and asexual, but they're okay with people describing them as "partners".

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Darcy Lewis/Sif, Darcy's never been with a woman before, but Sif's sudden entrance into her life makes her realize she might not be as straight as she always thought.


Marvel Movies, Howard Stark, the reason he was tough on his son was he didn’t want Tony to have to go through what he did

Marvel Movies, Howard Stark, just because he married Maria does not make his feelings for Steve any less valid.

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Maria Hill/Natasha Romanova, Natasha is aromantic and Maria is best described as career-sexual. That doesn't mean they're not committed to each other - Natasha respects people who will kill her if necessary, after all.

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Peter Parker and Steve Rogers, After a blind date gone wrong - you guys have so much in common! You're both from New York, you're both in your twenties, and you both like art - Steve and Peter don't expect to see much of each other. Neither one is entirely sure how Peter ends up being Steve's guide to modern gay New York.

Marvel Movies (Avengers), pretty much everyone, Six Avengers, three SHIELD agents, nine ways of being queer.

Marvel Movies (Avengers), someone objects to Logan joining the Avengers because they're afraid that his heightened senses may pick up what they've managed to hide from everyone.

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Steve Rogers, He's nervous and excited about his first time with a woman. But that doesn't mean that all the times with men didn't mean anything.

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Steve Rogers, Steve watches a lot of news and he knows this whole "we're fine with queer people" stuff isn't exactly true so he'd like it if people would quit acting like it was just his time period that was awful.

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers/Peggy Carter, Upon waking up, Steve discovers that Peggy's relationships with Nick Fury, Howard Stark and Maria Stark and realizes that of all the people he could have confided in about Bucky, she would have understood the best.

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Steve Rogers/Thor, "No, we've discussed this before. The Avengers cannot declare war on an entire political party."

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Steve Rogers/Tony Stark; The team helps Steve accept his sexuality. He's not as subtle as he thinks. (I hope this one is mostly warm and fuzzy feelings.)

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Thor, Yes, Thor likes having sex with men and women. He's not really sure why people keep bringing up Loki's incident with the horse when he tells them, though. claimed by anassa_anemou

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Tony is outed as Bi-sexual by one of his exes (Tiberius Stone is my personal choice, but I'm happy to hear others) how does it change the way people view Iron Man?


Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tony Stark, Tony stopped trying to live up to his father’s expectations years ago. He’s rich, he’s a genius and he’ll do whatever he wants whenever he wants. Except men. But that doesn't count. Because he doesn't want to. And because it's a Bad Idea. And because… yeah, okay, maybe he does have just a few residual issues there.

Marvel Movies (Avengers), Tony Stark and Steve Rogers, Tony had never came out to his father, for fear of disapproval. When he finds out that Steve and Howard were happily together during the war as part of a poly relationship with Bucky and Peggy, he has even more reason to resent and dislike Steve than he already did.

Marvel Movies (Captain America) James Falsworth, in an attempt to build trust, the Howlin' Commandoes each agree to tell something that they've never told anyone else. James is worried because he doesn't think that most of their secrets could get them court martialled.

Marvel Movies (Captain America), Steve Rogers and the Avengers, Fury doesn't want any trouble with public relations so he holds a sensitivity training seminar for the Avengers. Many were expecting Steve to not take some parts well, they were surprised

Marvel Movies (Captain America), Steve/Bucky, In the modern world, history authors realize that when Captain America's only special request was that a certain James Buchanan Barnes was always stationed with him, it strongly suggested homosexual leanings.

Marvel Movies (Iron Man) Rhodey/Pepper/Tony Despite Tony’s constant flirting Rhodey has been careful that his relationship to Tony is perceived as nothing more than friendship. Even with DADT repealed he doesn’t think the military will approve of him dating Tony and Pepper.

Marvel Movies (Iron Man), James Rhodes(/Tony Stark), Rhodey lived under DADT for half his life. Rhodey has been friends with Tony for half his life. All the public womanizing that comes along with being Tony's friend also makes Tony a safe person to crush on... until the repeal, when Rhodey can finally do something about it. How does Rhodey navigate finally being able to be honest about how he feels? How DOES he feel? Gen, slash, or unrequited. Tony/Pepper welcome.

MCU; James "Rhodey" Rhodes; the habits of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" are hard to shake.

MCU; Jane Foster; her tastes in men don't reflect her tastes in women.

Marvel Movies (Iron Man), Pepper Potts, Pepper tries to keep it secret when she starts dating a woman, because she's sure that Tony's reaction will be crude and offensive.

Marvel Movies (Iron Man), Pepper Potts, Pepper's ex-girlfriend is Tony's date to the Tonys (or other event). Jealousy sparks off revelations and discussions ('Why didn't you tell me?' 'I'm too busy cleaning up your messes to want to let you know about mine.')

Marvel Movies (Iron Man), Pepper Potts, She's gotten used to herding girls out the door in the morning. It's mostly not a problem, but sometimes, she finds herself agreeing with Tony's taste - and maybe being a little jealous he got to them first

Marvel Movies (Iron Man), Rhodey, everyone assumes that Rhodey's straight, but they wouldn't be surprised if he'd once had a fling with Tony; the irony is that Rhodey is the one who swings that way, and Tony was the one who had to let him down gently.claimed by zarabithia

Marvel Movies (Iron Man), Tony Stark, The paparazzi follow him everywhere and he has an image to keep up, even if Pepper promises no one will find out that he didn't bring home a woman this time.

Marvel Movies, Pepper Potts/Tony Stark/Natasha Romanoff, Pepper's not sure what's more insulting - when people insinuate that she got her job by fucking Tony or when they say that her relationship with Natasha is for him. claimed by arsenicjade

Marvel Movies, Steve Rogers, Steve's asexual and it's incredible to finally have a word to describe what he's always felt.

Marvel Movies, Tony Stark, "I've slept with women while I was blind drunk too, but you don't see that explained away as a drunken binge"

Marvel Movies, Tony/Pepper, Tony and Pepper have begun a relationship and though Tony knew Pepper was ace, now they have to find their way with what they are both comfortable with. Bonus for Tony worrying he's pushing Pepper beyond her comfort zone.

MCU; Steve Rogers; bi!Steve, and the queer subculture of 30s/40s Brooklyn

MCU; Pepper Potts; she had decided not to tell anyone that she was MtF - but she finds herself changing her mind.


MCU; Natasha Romanoff; "coming out" as lesbian is a bit hard when you can't "come out" as a spy in the first place, even if you want to.

MCU; Natasha Romanoff; she uses aliases with her girlfriends, just like she uses aliases for the rest of her life.

MCU; Natasha Romanoff; gender is just as fluid as everything else in Romanoff's life.claimed by sharpeningthebones

MCU: Natasha Romanoff; she was born Nikolai.

MCU; Peggy Carter; she had an affair with Howard Stark, and fell in love with Steve Rogers, and she utterly owned her sexuality when it came to women, too. Propriety be damned.

MCU; Loki; The Jötunn do not have gender as the Asgardians understand it, and that really didn't help Loki's identity issues/sense of fitting in.

MCU; Laufey; "King" is a gendered, Asgardian mangling of Laufey's true title.

MCU; Maria Hill; it's not that she's focused on her career and her job to the exclusion of relationships - she genuinely doesn't see the need for a romantic relationship. With anyone.

MCU; Maria Hill; just because she wears a uniform to work and is no-nonsense doesn't mean she's butch on her time-off.

MCU; Pepper Potts; she is asexual; this doesn't mean she doesn't get jealous.

MCU: Pepper Potts; being asexual has got nothing to do with her love of pretty clothes.






Mass Effect, any Asari, prefers using male pronouns when dealing with bigendered species as opposed to the majority of his species who use female pronouns.

Mass Effect, Female Shepard/Tali, Tali teaches Shepard about how to take of the Normandy's engines and a few other things.

Mass Effect, Jack/Miranda, the night at Commander Shepard's party takes some surprising twists and turns that have both of them questioning more than each other's choice in wardrobe.

Mass Effect, Shepard, MtF trans!Shepard, The boy she keeps seeing/dreaming about in ME3 is the boy she used to be, when she had a male body, and that is the shape the catalyst takes at the end.



Matilda, Agatha Trunchbull, Years and years later, she realizes that being a closeted lesbian may have be hard, but it is *not an excuse.* She tries to make amends.

Matilda, Jenny Honey, Miss Honey always promised herself that when she was free from Aunt Trunchbull, she'd find herself a nice woman and settle down. Or at least start dating. Or at least go out to a bar once in awhile. But now she finds herself the mother of a six-year-old. Are her dreams still possible? claimed by perfectworry and bring_me_sugar



Maurice, Alec Scudder, he can't quite stop trying to think of one of them as the wife, for all Maurice's talk of friends.

Maurice, Alec Scudder, he's never been in a relationship before, girl or boy; it's not entirely what he'd expected.

Maurice, Clive Durham, it's a bit of a relief, really, that Anne's too proper to show interest in the whole... sex thing; he had thought, once, that his reluctance with Maurice was because they were both men. (Clive as bi-romantic asexual)

Maurice, Kitty Hall, no one in the family ever knew that there were two queer Hall siblings. claimed by queen_ypolita

Maurice, Maurice Hall/Alec Scudder, Maurice had nearly forgotten that he had once seen Alec enjoying the favours of two women at the same time, it hadn't seemed relevant for years.



Merlin, any characters, Camelot has a GSA. Who's in it, is it well-known or secret (or both) and how does it change over the years?

Merlin, any female character, nobody in Camelot seems to mind if fall in love with another woman, provided that eventually you get married and have kids. How long is it possible to put off 'eventually'?

Merlin, Arthur ?/ Merlin, Merlin is the only one who knows he’s actually a woman, and that can never change.

Merlin, Arthur Pendragon, being gay and in the closet means his desires take him to seedier places each time.

Merlin, Arthur (Arthur/Merlin optional), Uther knows that Arthur is interested in men, and accepts it as long as Arthur is willing to keep it a secret and get married. But for Arthur, the issue isn't whether he can live by these terms but whether he's okay with receiving such conditional acceptance from his father

Merlin, Arthur (Arthur/Merlin optional), Uther knows that Arthur is interested in men, and accepts it as long as Arthur is willing to keep it a secret and get married. But for Arthur, the issue isn't whether he can live by these terms but whether he's okay with receiving such conditional acceptance from his father

Merlin, Arthur Pendragon, 'You're gay? But you're a guy's guy!' Somehow, it's harder coming out to new people when you don't look stereotypically gay.

Merlin, Arthur, (Canon or modern) When Uther asks if Arthur is straight, she's able to look him in the eyes and honestly say yes.

Merlin, Arthur, (Modern AU) How does the world react to the first openly gay monarch?

Merlin, Arthur, the regard of his people means more to him than almost anything, and that is why the truth can never come out

Merlin, Arthur/Gwen and Arthur/Merlin, How do the people/ the aristocracy take it that their king has not only married a woman, but publicly taken a male lover?

Merlin, Arthur/Lancelot, the real reason they were never quite as close as they should have been was that Arthur knew he wouldn't be able to resist temptation.

Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, Arthur/Gwen, Arthur and Merlin are in a relationship prior to his marriage to Gwen, and it continues during the marriage, with Gwen’s knowledge and consent.

Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, Merlin hadn't considered that he might fall in love with another man, but when he thinks about it, what makes his growing fondness for Arthur any different from love

Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, Merlin is MtF and starts using magic to 'fix' his body. Arthur starts noticing that Merlin is starting to look different, and confronts him about it.

Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, Modern AU; Arthur thinks homosexuality is private, Merlin is politically gay. How does that affect their relationship?

Merlin, Arthur/Merlin, there's nothing going on between them, there can't possibly ever be, they both know that, so why does Merlin keep spending nights in Arthur's bed anyway?

Merlin, Elyan, His sister’s not the only one whose love for Arthur is more than that of a servant for a king.

Merlin, ensemble, Merlin hides being magic. Arthur hides being bi. Gwen hides dissatisfaction with gender. Morgana manages to figure it all out.

Merlin, Gwaine, Being GBTQ didn't matter when he never spent more than a week in one place, but now that he's a Knight of Camelot- now that he has so much to lose- how can he tell his friends? Bonus points for having to come out to object of affections as well, but not required.

Merlin, Gwaine/other characters, Gwaine doesn't see anything wrong with loving more than one person at a time, but another character/s is/are having trouble understanding and/or accepting it.

Merlin, Gwaine/other characters, Gwaine doesn’t see anything wrong with loving more than one person at a time, but another character/s is/are having trouble understanding and/or accepting it.

Merlin, Gwen/Arthur/Merlin, Triad: After Arthur's return, Merlin and Arthur try to live as a couple on their own and quickly discover they can't. They need Gwen. Not just for her common sense but because they love her. They don't rest until they find her in the present. I'd like both Arthur and Merlin written as bisexual (not straight, not gay), and the relationship between them and Gwen explored as a triad where each party is invested in the two others.


Merlin, Knights of Camelot, there have being so big changes in Camelot since Arthur took the throne, but some of the old ways still remain.

Merlin, Lancelot, It's easier to let people assume he's in love with Gwen. The truth is he barely notices her when Arthur's around.

Merlin, Lancelot, It's easier to let people assume he's in love with Gwen. The truth is he barely notices her when Arthur's around.

Merlin, Leon, As captain of the Royal Guard, Leon is a well-respected public figure with an open-door policy. He's often counseled young knights, citizens, even lords and ladies about private matters.

Merlin, Merlin/Arthur, five Reincarnations where they weren't able to be together and one where they ended up together

Merlin, Merlin/Arthur, Merlin had hoped that in this modern age, Arthur would be able accept who he was and what he wanted. The scars on Arthur's wrist said it wasn't that simple.

Merlin, Morgana or Morgause, coming out to her sister

Merlin, Morgana, there's nothing royalty hates more than a lesbian

My Beautiful Laundrette, Omar Ali/Johnny Burfoot, Omar loves Johnny, but he identifies as bi, not gay, and doesn't understand why that makes Johnny feel so insecure.
