Hunters of Artemis, because arrows and FREAKING ETERNALLY AROMANTIC HUNTERS GOING AROUND AND BEING THE COOLEST PEOPLE EVER

 

I 💚 this!! I’m a huge Greek Mythology nerd (I call it “geek” mythology) and I’ve always loved Artemis and her hunters! I think they’re so cool, and it’s even cooler to be able to relate to them now that I identify as grayromantic (and bi).

Anything and everything green that any arospec person has ever liked is thereby collected forever as aro culture. Even vomit/sick emoji's, because that can symbolize our collective disgust towards amatonormativity (and perhaps, depending on the aro, general romance). 

Also, I can't quite explain it, but... blankets. They just are. I mean, you know how some allo people say "Yeah, I hug my pillow every night because I'm so desperate/longing/yearning for a bf/gf/partner lolz"? So I'm saying if that's how they feel, fine, they may have my beloved concept of pillows, but the blankets are mine

*ahem* ours, sorry.

It's because they make us not need anyone else's body heat.

I like this reasoning. By this logic I think hot chocolate is aro, and maybe mint hot chocolate is really really aro

But... I hug my pillow at night because its comfy. Dont give away my pillow! 😂 I tend to hug it even when somebody else is in bed with me!

Can we please have trumpet be the aro instrument?

My reasoning is, trumpets are typically quite loud so they wouldn't be the best instrument to romantically serenade someone with.

- an aro trumpet player

Anything but a muted trumpet, please. Although "horn" sounds better, as in "the horn that signalled judgement day or resurrected the deceased". Either doesn't sound particularly romantic.

I like this reasoning. But if we are thinking about what not to serenade someone with I think the kazoo is a far more aro instrument

No need to limit ourselves to just one aro instrument. How about drums?

Yes, especially one you use in a marching band. Like a big one you wear by your stomach.

Smaller drums can be more romantic I think. Like bongo drums I would not consider aromantic.

Adding onto the aro instrument bit, I feel like violas are the aro string instrument. Yes it's small, but the different range with lower strings and higher strings makes is totally not romantic.

I don't know... it still looks a lot like a violin. I would argue contrabass is more aro.

hang on, when you wrote this i got it confused with the contrabassoon.

I think all brass instruments qualify.

Ahh, I see your point, you are correct. I apologize, I did not realize that, nor did I realized the fact that I have befriended an aro contrabass. Accept my deepest apologies

I feel like almost any large instrument could qualify. Like, I don't know how I'd feel about someone trying to serenade me with a tuba.

Aero bars are peak aro culture, and mint Aero bars especially

"So what are you into?"

"Sorry, I'm just a mint aero kind of person"
