I finished washing my hands and saw Andy was, just as he’d said, all tucked in for bed. Of course, his bony ass was sticking out so he took up way more than half of the bed, but I didn’t bother to wake him. I snuck under both the cover and sheet, doing my bed not to jostle Andy too much.
“Lights, Kama.” The lights went out, and I tried to get comfortable.
I was wondering if I could, just subtly, knee Andy in the ass, to get more room for myself, without waking him up, when I heard him sigh. So he hadn’t been asleep after all!
“Having trouble falling asleep?” I knew I certainly was; my ass was partially hanging off the bed!
Andy groaned and I heard him fussing with his hair. “I need to be asleep, like, right now. Before I get a boner!”
Again, I couldn’t help but chuckle. “I’ll just pretend I don’t notice it-“
I could just see the outline of Andy’s head as he briefly turned it in my direction before curling in on himself again. “You don’t understand! Something happens to me, it’s like I’m nothing but my penis!”
I smiled. “Good thing you’ve got a decent cock, then.”
Andy snorted and muffled into the pillow. “Thanks, I ------ don’t wanna talk --- that. ---- trip some sex trigger.”
I sighed. “I can’t hear you, your face is in your pillow-“
Andy jerked his head around. “Why do you say that? Are you horny; are you trying to get me to flip around so you can seduce me?!?”
I groaned. “No! And I never seduced you! You’re the one that was pumping your sausage-“
Andy cut me off. “-Why the hell weren’t you wearing a bathing suit?”
I scowled, irritated. “I didn’t have one! What the fuck does that matter? You-“
Andy interrupted me again, defensive. “-I said I was sorry, and I meant it! I can’t seem to stop it when it happens! I’m afraid for when it happens again. I love my girlfriend…”
Andy trailed off, and, after a second, I saw his shoulders shake. “Hey, are you ok?”
I tried to pat his shoulder, but he shook me off. “No! Don’t touch me, please! I have to fall asleep before I get wood!”
“Ok, ok!” I moved to try and give Andy as much space as I could.
As I started to drift off, I noticed how good Andy smelled. Really clean, but masculine. His bare back was radiating a comfortable, warm heat, and it called out for me to touch it.
In my sleep-drunk haze, I reasoned that Andy felt all alone, he needed some comforting. He needed to know I was here, on his side, too. Thoughtlessly, I pressed closer against him, slinging an arm around his waist, before finally passing out.
This was unacceptable. The ratio of time spent engaged in sexual intercourse versus time spent otherwise was far too low, even when the initiation stage was accounted and compensated for. Additionally, the time spent in confrontational interactions was undeniably statistically significant.
Action had to be taken, and immediately, to drastically alter those percentages. Time was a factor. There was a finite amount of it in which to get the desired results. Failure was not an option.
With hope in its mechanical, insubstantial heart, Kama opened the vents into (Y/N)’s sleeping chambers. It started pumping aerosolized pheromones into the room. Not just the generic ones designed for all Homo sapiens, but those that were specifically tailored to (Y/N) and Andy. It would not stop the current until results were achieved and errors in projected implementation corrected.
Feedback/etc. is always appreciated.
On a serious note:
In Nazi Germany, there were many people who did nothing to support Hitler and the Nazis, but who did nothing to stop them, either. Inaction at a time of crisis is unacceptable. Learn from history and stand up for what is right every moment of every day. The time is NOW.
The FBI determined some months ago that hacking, originating from Russia, was having an influence on our electoral process. These hackers interfered with our presidential election through attempted and successful penetration of email and voter registration databases, among other systems. This created fear, uncertainty, and doubt about the safety of our electoral processes.
Computers tabulated the vast majority of the 129 million votes cast in the presidential election, and polls were wildly off. Did hackers manipulate the results by compromising voting equipment? Did other problems, glitches, or errors affect the outcome?
There's a simple, relatively inexpensive way to find out: audit the electronic results against the paper ballots used by about 75% of U.S. voters.
American democracy depends on public trust of our electoral process, and public trust requires a trustworthy process.
Please sign to demand that election officials double-check the electronic results by conducting a "risk-limiting" audit of the presidential election in every state that uses paper ballots.

As my arch-nemesis has also mentioned in her notes recently, there is a petition online to ask the electoral college to change their votes to reflect the will of the majority/popular vote. They certainly are allowed to do this, and even in states where they are not supposed to, they only need pay a fine. Additionally, in several key states ('won' by trump, including Pennsylvania), the validity of the electronic voting has recently been called into question.
Thus, it is the only just course of action to sign the following petition. It already has the support of well over 1% of the USA's population, which is record-breaking:
