If you could go back in time -- knowing what you know now -- to the dewy days when you first discovered m/m, what do you think you would give your younger self to read? What would be the best launching pad for you to get into m/m?
Would you give yourself the Adrien English series? Or start with Vic and Jacob from Psycop? Or maybe you know you were secretly into alien dub-con even back then and some hot tentacle read right at the start would have cut down all that wandering through the genre?
Maybe you wouldn't change a thing. In which case, what did you start off with?
A fandom friend of mine is about to start reading published m/m and I'm her Gandalf, leading her through Moria. It got me thinking about my own reading journey and what it might have looked like if I knew what I know now.
What are your drums in the deep, friends?
