You're definitely not mad. I had a similar experience. I also had many people try to guide me away from what you're experiencing. Your story is one that makes people very uncomfortable - the possibility of being completely wrong about being gay and

I definitely don't think it's weird. (And fantasy and romance are two of the biggest genres in fiction, so if you're weird for liking them then so is everyone else). I want to be a writer, but I do just write the same thing over and over. Some kid (

Thank you! I'm glad that no one thinks I'm crazy. Just with the way everyone else seemed to doubt me or dismiss me it made me feel like maybe I was. Or that I had no right to be bothered by it. We're not supposed to carry personal money at work, in
