You’re at Gen’s garden today, helping him plant his new seedlings for the coming change of season ahead. And you’ve got to say: you seem to have a knack for helping Gen’s plant babies into their new home!
“Friend! Come quick!” comes the sound of Xiaolong’s voice.
You look at Gen – you’re almost finished helping him though! – but he gives you a big smile and tells you that you’ve done plenty today.
When you find Xiaolong, she’s standing by the pond’s edge and is adjusting a flag pole that she has pushed into the ground. The flag flutters gently in the wind (though, you think it’s Varian’s probably air-magic that is helping the flag fly) and the flag has a five-stripe design, with dark-green, light-green, white, grey, and black!
The aromantic pride flag! you say, recognising the flag.
Xiaolong gives you a big grin. “Yes, friend! We have a special guest today, and I’m really excited to introduce you to her. But before she arrives, I want to share with you the book that she is editing. I can’t wait to read it, but it needs a little help first!”
Help?! you exclaim. We always help our friends, right Xiaolong?
She gives you a big thumbs-up. “Right! We always help our friends!”
Good morning, good afternoon, and good evening friends! ✨
I have such an exciting feature to share with you all today, and I also have an exciting guest that will be visiting the Pond today! But before I introduce you to our wonderful guest, I’d like to tell you a lovely, upcoming anthology that will feature speculative fiction, aromantic characters, and stories about platonic relationships!
