Coming Out

Work Text:

"I'm just not sexually attracted to people."
Elizabeth could see Peter's brain start to present him with things other than people that people could be sexually attracted to.
"Or animals." Neal wrinkled his nose, cutting Peter off before Elizabeth could. "Or… nouns." Neal nodded, satisfied that he found the right words. "I'm just not attracted to nouns."
"But, we've had sex." Peter frowned, concerned.
"And I liked it." Neal was quick to reassure. "I like verbs- gerunds even! Loving, caring," he looked at them with a wicked smile, "tying, spanking."
"But not people? Ever?"
Neal shrugged. "Not one person, ever."
