Foolish Child #93: Asexuality

In a three panel comic, Dickens laughs with their friend. The friend is making a joke about sex and relationships, Dickens laughs over hard on purpose (noting to the reader that it's: "awkward laughter in the key of Ace"). The friend asks, "You've no idea what I'm talking about" and Dickens answers, "Not one clue." The friend deadpans, "You literally write sex in your fan fiction." And Dickens raises their hands and answers, "I have a vivid imagination."
