Check the blog over the next couple days, cuz I'm scheduling more posts of me and the cats
The last one, that I've never seen anywhere, is care-giving. You could call it paternal or maternal feelings, but I don't think it has to be. It's wanting to make sure your loved ones are warm, fed, hydrated, happy, etc and/or wanting someone to do the same for you. It's empathy and sympathy. It's a stronger drive for some people than for others, but we all have it. Personally I have an abundant need to make sure everybody, from family members to random people is okay, and I have lots of friends and family that are the same. For some people it takes the form of "food = love, must feed people". For others it's being a sugar daddy. It's definitely related to emotional attraction, but the need isn't emotion based. If anything, care-giving is what drives a lot of the expression of emotional attraction.
First of all, as I've said on Twitter several times, I'm not convinced romance actually exists. That's only like 60% my aromantic butt joking.

I’ve been busy working, and went to Bubonicon in New Mexico and met Ursula Vernon and Kevin Sonney, which was awesome. My job got extended until at least November, which is good money-wise, but not so great stress-wise. I’ll endure. Around working, I’m gardening a bit (the desert heat is a pain) and working on […]
Ed, on the right, and Nayda. That’s a rock on the shelf below them, in case you were wondering. It was supposed to help dull their nails, but it never really worked.
I’m going to rewrite the first issue / story of the White Knight tonight, since I got comments back from the sensitivity reader. Then I just need to set up a specific site for it (besides the tumblr), finish the new logo, and start posting! While working 40 hours a week!
Here’s Nayda, in my lap. I can’t tell what zie’s eating, probably one of their kibbles. In the apartment, which is where I think this was taken, I could move their cage close enough that they could come and go from the cage to my bed.
Here’s another pic from when I had an apartment. There was a Chinese place that would deliver. I believe this is Nayda – it’s hard to tell zie and Ed apart from just the head.
