First off, I’d like to thank everyone who contributed to this month’s carnival. As a first-time host it was an amazing experience!
We’ve got some really good stuff going on this month. The topic was humor, for those who don’t remember. The featured topic next month is Naming It and is being hosted by Valprehension. Make sure to check it out and post a submission!
*note: Round-Up is ordered via submission date
Here we go:
thistooshalleventuallypass (Mara Jane, aka your Carnival Host) shares a time when friends’ dirty jokes went too far for comfort
luvtheheaven provides this carnival with the requisite amount of serious/educational material in a two part series titled “How to Positively Represent Asexuality within Humorous Fiction.”
- Part one, “What to Avoid,” shares explanations of how not to write an asexual character
- Part two, “Options that can be funny without being hurtful!” provides examples of how to write an asexual character without making their orientation the butt of the joke (with bonus fandom examples thrown in for good measure!)
Thanks again for participating this month. If you are interested in hosting or learning more about the Carnival make sure to check out the Masterpost over at The Asexual Agenda!
