Quantification is a story written by Kimyō Tabibito and illustrated by The Winter Cynic. It ran in Issue 50 at http://s2b2.livejournal.com/285051.html, and is mirrored at http://www.shousetsubangbang.com/mirror/quantification/. It is a part of the SEQ universe.
Relationship and sexual labels had never been Geoff's friend, but Brannon loved them: Gay. Kinky. Submissive. Geoff’s attraction wasn't something he could quantify or understand. He’d never wanted, to define them before Brannon.
This started out as an effort to write as many sex scenes as possible...and then it swung into a wildly different direction. Twice. This resulted in two major editing overhauls, but I'm extremely happy with the results. I do want t a bit of clarification, that while Geoff identifies as asexual, asexuality is a spectrum, and I would personally label him more on the gray-ace side of things.
This work was a labor of love that would not have been possible without a whole slew of people. My patient beta S, Aosora Hikaru for edits and listening to me moan and whine about this story for over a month, Himawari for a last set of editing eyes, and of course SSBB’s own Shukyou for the wonderful feedback to make my first submission into what it is now. A huge shout out to The Winter Cynic for such amazing art. I also need to thank the friendly tumblr anons, Rachel, and Kat, for answering my questions about asexuality + kink.
