hi! Sorry for bothering, but do you happen to know what a grey-romantic is? I've read about it but I can't quite grasp the concept, I always end up confused. You're probably the wisest person I know in what comes to sexuality, so... can you help me? :3
Okay, so I went onto asexuality.org for some info. I’m really not versed well in the different romantic attractions that fall under the ace umbrella but I’ll tried my best. The site describes grey-romantics as people who may
- experience romantic attraction, just not often
- experience romantic attraction, but do not want a romantic relationship
- want a relationship that floats in between romantic and platonic
I think it depends on the person, because every one is different! They cite demi-romantic as a type of grey-romantic: they’re people who only experience a romantic attraction to someone after they’ve already developed an emotional connection with that person. So, they wouldn’t be able to desire a romantic relationship with someone they barely knew. I think the “friends to lovers” trope would be best used here! Again, every body’s different, but I hoped this helped a little bit?
I think grey-romantic and grey-sexual can be a little hard to define/understand because it’s not very definitive! It’s not black and white, not “I experience romantic attraction” or “I don’t experience romantic attraction.” It’s conditional. :)

People don’t like her because it’s the making of her, right now. When she, sometime soon in the future, becomes this person that she’s been kind of building up to, for the past three seasons, now four, then people will really begin to root for her. I think even the audience doesn’t realize she’s such a dark horse. If she acted badass and tried to kill everyone there, she would be dead by now! She’s so intelligent, and I can’t stress that enough. Courtesy is a lady’s armor. She’s using her courtesy to deceive people, and she’s using her former self as a facade, and it works so much to her advantage, because people still think she’s this naive, vulnerable, little girl, and she’s really not. She knows exactly what she’s doing. She knows what game she’s playing! And no one else does. And she’s learned from the best — Cersei, Margaery, Tyrion, Littlefinger, even Joffrey. She’s learned so much from these people, and they don’t even realize it. They’re unwittingly feeding her to become this great kind of manipulator. King’s Landing can either make or break a person, and in Sansa’s case, it’s making her.
