Asexual Connor

(Anonymous) 2014-01-15 01:48 pm (UTC)(link)
So in light of my recent orientation discovery, I humbly request a fic featuring an asexual Connor. He never seems to be attracted to anybody and I think he'd be a good contender.

Asexuality means a lack of sexual attraction, not necessarily lack of libido though of course everyone experiences it differently. So please, something, anything. Xx

As a fellow asexual, I can totally see this and would love a bit of representation. I don't know why I didn't see it before, it all makes sense now! Seconding in the hopes that someone will fill (if I don't end up filling it myself).

(Remember, he did stare at that lady in Boston when he was young - perhaps that was an aesthetic appreciation and Achilles misinterpreted it?)

Re: Asexual Connor

(Anonymous) 2014-01-15 07:32 pm (UTC)(link)
Haha I totally have an explanation for that one too: it's entirely possible that's the first time he ever saw a white woman/an umbrella. Of course, aesthetic attraction works for me too!

Not OP, but would you say that Mary Read could also be asexual? I know she has a kid (but then so does Connor, obviously, because Desmond) but that is kind of a survival strategy for a female pirate.

Re: Asexual Connor

(Anonymous) 2014-03-06 02:38 pm (UTC)(link)
Sorry for the late reply - didn't realise the question was aimed at OP/me. Hmm, I see her more as celibate, which is I think what you were aiming for? It can go either way, but if you're describing it as a "survival technique", then it's more likely to be celibacy (which is choosing to abstain from sex), rather than asexuality (which is not really a choice). So while Mary/James could be asexual, it's really up to the interpretation of the character, and for me she strikes me as bisexual/pansexual.

Re: Asexual Connor

(Anonymous) 2014-03-06 05:15 pm (UTC)(link)
I, too, see her as bisexual/pansexual. But what I was aiming at was actually that pregnancy (and therefore sex) saved her from being hanged--unfortunately, of course, it killed her in the end...

Re: Asexual Connor

(Anonymous) 2014-03-06 10:40 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh! I get what you mean now! That the child was a survival technique! Right. Silly me. I was thinking that you meant she was witholding sex because she was disguised as a man.

It can really go either way - her relationship with Anne and Jack could have been in an asexual manner, and the child with the young crewmate could have been from a shared romantic love rather than sexually-based. It's all up to how people want to interpret the game. :)

You've come to a kink meme which is expressly used for smut to ask for notsmut asexual stuff? This literally makes no sense. If you want genfic then go to a normal prompt fic journal. Why request this on a kink meme?

Re: Asexual Connor

(Anonymous) 2014-01-18 02:32 am (UTC)(link)
Not OP, but according to the guidelines listed towards the top of this page, and on nearly all of the asscreedkinkmeme pages, "The fill/request doesn't necessarily need to be smut". Not all good ideas and writing need to revolve around a person's libido.

On another note, I personally find the idea of an asexual Connor to be interesting and I would love to see someone's take on it.

Is there a normal prompt journal?

Re: Asexual Connor

(Anonymous) 2014-01-18 09:27 am (UTC)(link)
OP here and gotta say... feeling a little hurt. I thought this kink meme was to request specific elements you want featured in a fic, as kinky or non kinky as you like.

I think perhaps you misunderstand my prompt, or what it means to be asexual.

For me, it's lack of sexual attraction not lack of libido/desire for sex. Lots of asexuals have sex, lots of asexuals don't, I'm certain there are plenty of ace people in between. I thought it would be interesting to see Connor trying to explain why he feels different? Maybe trying sex and not having it work out and then discussing it with his partner? Maybe his partner doesn't care? Maybe they try it again and Connor is definitely sure he's not as in to it as the partner is?

I never asked for nonsmut, I guess I ought to have made that clear in my prompt. I wanted to see a Connor that views sex a little different from others like, say, Thomas Hickey. I figured a good way to demonstrate this difference was to have him have sex.

As for your final point, I requested this on the kink meme because I wanted to see representation for the A in LGBTQA

On a final note, do you really think I'd be here, on the kink meme where I make fills and have made prompts in the past, if I didn't like to read and write smut? Sex fascinates me and I like to see my favourite characters going at it. Please..... . reconsider your statement.

I find it interesting that only YOUR prompt gets this kind of flame response. So prompts for gen stories about time travel, family bonding, coffee, kittens, the flu, Eagle Vision, etc. are kinky enough to pass muster, but a prompt about asexuality is not? BAH. I smell a bigot.

Re: Asexual Connor

Lol bigoted against what? Their right to not feel sexual attraction? Ooh those oppressed asexuals. They certainly have it tougher than us gays. Yep.

Re: Asexual Connor

(Anonymous) 2014-03-17 03:30 am (UTC)(link)
Wow, I thought it was only bisexuals that were so hated. And transsexuals. Astounding! You don't even seem to realize you're being hateful. Because after all, it's "only" directed at asexual people, right? And you don't want to bother to attempt a little bit of empathy for them.

Isn't it great how people who have been marginalized by society will happily further marginalize others? I learned that lesson well in 3rd grade when the kid who got made fun of because he flapped his hands didn't even want to talk to me anymore because I was too weird.

Because being raped and told that it'll fix us isn't discrimination. Because not being able to enter "safe spaces for LGBTQA" because people don't believe in asexuality isn't discrimination. Because asexuality isn't necessarily mutually exclusive to heterosexual romance and cis gendered people, yet people think it is and perpetuate that myth isn't discrimination.

Because for almost my entire life I have been told that I am broken and if you're trying to tell me that isn't oppression, then you really need to reconsider your viewpoint. Because I have seen the media call me cold-hearted, boring, incapable of love. Because there is nearly nothing on asexuality when it comes to sexual education and as a shy, bullied 13 year old in an overtly sexual world, I certainly had nobody I could turn to.

Get off your high fucking horse. You make asexuality sound like a choice (which it's not) and exclusive to cis, heteroromantics (again, which it's not).

Re: Asexual Connor

(Anonymous) 2014-03-17 11:24 am (UTC)(link)
Lol, don't you just LOOOOVE being told you don't exist? I thought it was just bisexuals like me that didn't exist! And even though we don't exist, somehow we still have it soooo much easier, too.

Makes me wonder if douchebag!anon is a good enough writer to write a believable asexual character. Care to rise to that challenge, anon, or are you only here to flame?

Oh fuck off. Ace people aren't even fucking welcome in parts of the LCBTQIAP+ (please note the A in there. A.) community because of people like you. Let that sink in. They're not welcome in their own fucking community. I'm gunna say, yeah, kinda oppressed. Their gender identity in CONTINUOUSLY degraded and erased and called 'not a REAL identity' EVEN WITHIN THEIR OWN COMMUNITY.

OP, this really freaking sucks that someone had to shit all over your prompt. :( I really would love to see the take on this, I really do, because asexuality gets so little representation and I would like to see myself in the media sometimes.

Hey OP, sorry you had to deal with this, and hope this doesn't get you down too much. I really hope someone fills this for you; I'd be really interested to read something about a subject that gets so little attention!

Re: Asexual Connor

Fellow asexual here, I found this timbit out when I found out the New York assassins are in the Frontier taverns and talked to Dobby (female recruit). Can't find a video but during the conversation Connor seems to be just interested in the idea of a family.

Connor: Hello, Dobby.
Dobby: Connor. You look well.
Connor: I have been better.
Dobby: Do you ever sleep? I really don't know how you do it.
Connor: I try not to think about it.
Dobby: A strong man, stronger than any I've ever met. How is it a man like you has no wife?
Connor: I do not have the time to give a woman what she deserves. Perhaps when all this is over, I will be able to settle and have a family. I hope.
Dobby: Of all the lecherous and deceitful men out there who are fathers you'd be a godsend. But I suppose that's how it is, the good ones are too busy for it and the louts have nothing better to do. In any case, if you ever think it's time, make sure I get the first crack!
Connor: Hmm, I promise.

Fun fact, if you decide to replay the part of Sequence 3 where Haytham and Ziio go to the tavern and Haytham gets into a brawl, before you trigger this conversation, Dobby is STILL THERE WAITING TO TALK. At least in the Wii U version.

I was a little too scared to trigger the conversation as Haytham though. I wasn't sure what the game would do and I thought it might be really awkward.

Dub-con warning is for Ratonhnhaké:ton not bring entirely into the act, and if someone isn't entirely into it, then it's not a full consent that's willing and continuous. Some of these things have been said to me, although I've never had the awkward bedroom situation as I figured out my asexuality long before I ever made it to a situation like that. That said, one of my exes didn't understand, and I hadn't understood what I was at the time, and so we broke up.


When Aveline pulled away, her brows pulling together in a mixture of confusion and irritation, Ratonhnhaké:ton knew something had gone wrong. He wasn't sure what, but that brief second of Aveline's displeasure was enough to let him know that he had managed to stumble and fall over in the proceedings of sex much like that time he'd fallen out of the tree while collecting feathers - a curdling of the stomach, weightlessness, and then the awkward embarrassment as it occurred in the presence of a witness. They had both enjoyed the foreplay of kisses, both climaxed, but it had felt rather empty and Ratonhnhaké:ton wondered if Aveline had made those noises in true delight or a stilted attempt to have him relax.

"I am sorry," he murmured, laying an arm over Aveline's waist, staring into her eyes.

"Whatever for? I have had worse first experiences," she replied. "Next time will be more comfortable for the both of us."

Patting the hand fondly Aveline snuggled down into the blankets. Yet she didn't face him as she usually did, turning over. For a moment Ratonhnhaké:ton was angry (at himself or her, he wasn't sure - the emotion was too quick and intense to recognise the difference), until she wriggled back and slipped his arm into a more comfortable position for cuddling. This was the type of physicality that Ratonhnhaké:ton enjoyed best and he found himself pulling her closer, just to be there and feel her next to him. The scent of sweat and the oil Aveline used in her hair, a crackle of pine needles and a wisp of smoked meat. Her skin, not unmarred by scars but not imperfect for it. The weight of her body resting in his arms, light but not compromised by malnourishment or laziness. A sense of relief trickled from the back of Ratonhnhaké:ton's head, traveling down his back and resting across his ribs, the fingers of the spirit resting gently next to his heart and chest, which had been tight with unease and worry.

It made the intensity of their previous interactions fade. If only for a while.

He knew at some point that he would have to explain himself. Perhaps it was just nerves? Perhaps the next time would be better? He dared not to think of what would happen if the situation was the same, what Aveline would do, that the house would be empty again.

***

"It's natural. And if your first time had a bit of a fumble then it's perfectly fine. Once you get into it, then you're set. There's a reason the whole world, from kings to peasants, likes it so much," offered Norris and Ratonhnhaké:ton frowned, trying to make sense of the puzzle. "Besides you have the tools for it in abundance."

That had only confused him more. Tools? And later Ratonhnhaké:ton realised that Norris had been insinuating his size and he shifted uncomfortably as things clicked - women had been interested in him for a quick fuck in the back alley and that they had been staring at him. Or his cock, rather. Thinking about that and not him as a person.

"You'll get better!" Norris had said as a form of farewell.


But he didn't. And the second time had Aveline slightly more annoyed and the third time had her openly asking if he didn't love her.

And he did love her but he just really Did Not Want Sex after their third time, because by this point he had determined that he did not feel sexual attraction towards Aveline. She was beautiful in every way, but he only wanted to be held and to hold her, and to know that (even if he didn't seek it out himself) that she was enjoying herself during sex. He'd figured out how topleasure her, but for the life of him, Ratonhnhaké:ton didn't understand why she found certain things appealing nor why the whole world was interested in it.

It.

Sex.

His cock.

Whichever was relevant at the time.

And it wasn't as if he hated it. Sex. No, he had physical reactions and desires, but it wasn't ever in reaction to another person being 'sexy'. He simply never liked it as much. Never sought it out.

And now that Aveline was angry with him, Ratonhnhaké:ton realised all of the cues she had made, all of the times she had insinuated wanting sex and it had whipped straight past him like an arrow and made sense to someone else. He felt angry too - he was clearly broken in some way or another, or so he thought. If he didn't desire like others did, didn't crave and hunt like Aveline, then something had to be wrong with him and that was the only possible solution.

So he tried to fake it. Fake that he enjoyed it, that he wasn't becoming more and more convinced that sex was an act he'd rather not participate in. It wasn't entirely repellant to him, not at all, not a sideline activity, and erections were definitely not something to ignore until they went away.

He masturbated without morning wood or an unexplained erection. Masturbated from scratch.

Tried to.

They had sex.

Tried to.

Tried.

Aveline had asked him, "Do you love me?"

And he had said yes.

Yes.

Yes, yes, yes.

Aveline had paused. Flicked her eyes to his crotch. To his flaccid prick, the traitor that didn't act like it should. Or how the world told him it should.

"Then why won't you love me?"

And Ratonhnhaké:ton had responded, but I have and I do, and I love you.

She had left the room and he could hear her sitting next to the doorframe, shivering.

He tried to wrap her in a blanket and found that she was crying.

"You don't love me," she said. "You are a terrible liar, Ratonhnhaké:ton."

That was a disaster.

He didn't say anything after that. Not that Ratonhnhaké:ton was a particularly chatty person to begin with, but the absence of Aveline in the house made it just that: a house. After her initial accusations, she took her belongings and left.

And the silence had been a sharp prickling of needles in his heart and head as his throat closed up with unsaid words. Words that wouldn't have made sense. If he couldn't make sense of himself, what hope would he have of making sense to Aveline? So he watched her vanish into the trees and remain by the door until sunrise, unmoving yet alert, hoping she would come back. The sun rose on a day that felt too peaceful to accompany the previous night's events; she hadn't returned.

Following her wasn't an option.

There were a dozen or more hunting blinds suitable for living in on a short term basis, he knew, but that didn't stop Ratonhnhaké:ton from wondering if Aveline was safe. Eventually he turned to the house and quietly sealed off their bedroom, returning to his former room, the one Achilles had placed him in as a brash young man. It had been far simpler to slash at a hay-stuffed target, to move checkers across a board against Achilles, to rise before the sun and plunge into icy water to swim. It had been easier to knead out the cramps in his muscles all the while commanding a ship, climbing the rigging, keeping his uniform clean.

It was a loss akin to the loss of his mother, his true friend, and his mentor.

The rest of the day he remained as sentinel on the doorstep with a stillness and lifelessness that transformed him into a wooden statue. Still Aveline did not return.

A presence. A curve of skin. A kiss. Someone to hold. Someone to hold him.

All he wanted was someone who didn't leave him.

***

When the moonlight spilt into her hiding place and the world had turned to the noise of nocturnal activity, Aveline crept to the lip of the hunting blind and let her legs dangle over the edge. Her stomach churned after a day without food, but she didn't want to eat. How could a man look at her with such affection and intimacy and yet not desire to take that further? He loved to touch her. She loved to touch him. Surely he knew that they were actions that were construed as sexual?

Maybe he did. Since the beginning of their relationship it had been a slow burn towards physicality, even when Aveline could have jumped Ratonhnhaké:ton she refrained. There had been times where it looked as if they were going to go at it, but Ratonhnhaké:ton didn't notice the implications or drew away before it became more than a hand stroking a thigh. And when they finally managed sex, Ratonhnhaké:ton acted in a virginal manner, as if masturbation wasn't something he engaged in and as if all of his knowledge was gleaned from the slightly unreliable patrons of the tavern at the bottom of the hill.


A flush of indignation and anger gripped Aveline; their relationship of over a year had ended after a few rounds of awful sex (it wasn't that he hadn't fulfilled her physically, and he was good with his fingers, it was he'd have a slightly blank look as if he'd retreated from the act and that wasn't good sex in Aveline's books) and a screaming match.

Ratonhnhaké:ton hadn't even tried to chase her!

Except that hollow, broken look in his eyes as she put together her pack, the silent way he followed her to the door and held it open for her, and the way he had closed their bedroom with an air of finality, like he'd never open it again without her, came back to Aveline in her moment of fury. Misplaced fury, she decided, feeling her heart racing with emotion. He didn't chase her because he thought she wanted to be alone and that was true.

She probably would have engaged in another shouting match and said something she regretted.

She'd already said something she regretted.

Confused and upset, alone, Aveline stared at the tree tops, wondering when their autumnal canopy would start to drop. She had been horribly wrong and she knew it. There was only so long that someone would wait for their lover to return - and that's what they were, lovers, even if Ratonhnhaké:ton didn't seem interested in sex, and Aveline felt foolish for placing the emphasis so heavily on one aspect - and that time had probably passed. She had been gone an entire day; nobody would take that as a good sign.

She was still upset, yes, she had every right to be upset and so did he, mainly because both of them had missed communicating critical feelings about their relationship and they both had a share in the blame. Damning herself for not realising earlier and damning him for not saying anything, but knowing that he didn't know how to define what he was trying to say, Aveline pulled her pack back over her shoulder to trek back to the homestead.

She wasn't going to give up that easily.

And if all was as Aveline suspected, neither would Ratonhnhaké:ton.

***

This was a disaster, but it could be salvaged.
