It is up! And the art is pretty! And I totally remember a time when we were young and innocent and went, "a/b/o is awesome, but could we really write it?" And then you did, and it was lovely. Yay for your first bb! :D

YAY. \o/

Yep. Yep. It's even sweeter that Verity was right there along with us, being innocent (and grossed out). :D

Today the subject was found to have named a character "Sassy Ass." My fellow researchers and I indulged in a long debate over the origins of this curious phrasing. Richards held that the character was both "sassy" i.e., "had sass, or was insolent and saucy" and was "an ass" in the modern sense, "hostile" or "anti-social," stating repeatedly that the most literal reading was always the best. The rest of us practically booed him down, with the exception of Dawkin, of course, who never does anything that can be construed as constructive. Childers offered that the "ass" as in "the posterior" was literally "sassy," and brought up that vulgar class of metaphor wherein one "talks out of one's ass" or "pulls [a thing] out of one's ass." I pointed out, quite correctly, that this would not promote instinctive trust in the readership, and wondered aloud whether the word was chosen merely to promote a raucous sense of mischief and appeal to l'adolescent émo. Here Dawkin tried to deconstruct the whole discussion, asking us to return to "the main ( ... )

Have read the latest entry by one Thomas, which contains the above suggestion. Authorial intent being the corpse it is widely considered to be by the academy, it would no doubt be pointless to affirm or deny any conjectures made by its members. However, were that not the case, it is highly likely that the above hypothesis would be selected as being of particular note. Additionally, under the same condition it would perhaps be fruitful to question whether an "ass" itself might possibly be considered "sassy" due not to its speech (of which the academy, that august body, would surely prefer at all costs avoid discussion) but its motion.

In any event, greatest sympathies are felt re: obtuse co-writers.

Wow, thank you so much! I'm thrilled that you liked it so well. (Also, I'm glad to connect your LJ ID with your AO3 ID. I thought that might be you, but wasn't sure.)

Love how Jared are Jensen are such familiar and recognizable male adolescents even in the midst of weird AU anatomy. Love the weird AU anatomy and the world building.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the fic! One of the things I love about the a/b/o verse is getting to mix the familiar with the very unfamiliar.
