When Quiver Meets Quill: Collected Aromantic Fiction

Jessie's casing an art gallery affords an opportunity to discuss a queerplatonic relationship. The phrase "I don't love" encompasses more than a prince's lack of romantic attraction. A gay aromantic makes a game of his alloromantic co-workers' inability to accept him. Alida finds an accomplice in petty revenge after hir friend sets hir up on a date. An aro-ace wanderer invents their own fairy tales free of weddings as a happily ever after.
