    @Alex Fierro: What even is sexuality when you don't have a defined sex? In all honesty, Alex is likely demisexual. Or Chasesexual.

    @Alex Treveney: .......she kills anyone she expresses affection for, so ace, bordering on bi.

    @Elspeth Gordie: Demi? She's straight (fell for Rushton), but it isn't likely to happen quickly.

    @Eve : SHE'S A TWELVE YEAR OLD, HOW ABOUT FUCK NO. In all honesty, as she grows up, she'll probably end up bi.

    @Jade Nguyen : Pan, with a side of uber-comfortable in her sexuality (she'll flirt with anyone and everyone).

    @Melissa McCall : Straight, by way of experimenting in college.

    @Sky Smith: NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

    @Tessa Gray: Straight, and quite comfortably repressed, except when it comes to her Shadowhunter boys, who she will fight you for.

    oh niceeee
    here we go

    John Silver - Bi. Yes, alright, this is a headcanon but anyone who's seen the show has also seen the utter ~chemistry~ between him and Flint. Either way, every time sexuality in any way or form is mentioned, he doesn't seem to care whatsoever about who loves whom, no judgement from his side at all. And he is, after all, an opportunist.
    He loves all the beautiful peopleeee.
    I would say he is pan, but, let's be real here - he's from the 1700's. Something other than male or female was non-existent in the public eye, so I doubt the mere idea of it has ever even crossed his mind.

    Eliot Waugh - the gayest of gays. No need for headcanons here, that's canon material. My gay sad magician with a way too strong sex drive

    Elias Ryker - well uh, much like Blix has mentioned in this thread before, he's from a world where people can switch bodies, basically?
    I would still say straight, honestly. As much as straight can even be possible in that scenario, but you get it. Actually he might be the straightest one on this list, yes, despite the last character on this list. don't ask me why. I don't even know.
    Not like it matters much, because for now he is heavily and tragically in love with Kristin anyway

    Kratos - should probably be the straightest character on this list buuuuut honestly I don't even know. I mean. It isn't like I can't picture him with a guy? And I could even imagine him having experimented in that regard in his teen years maybe? Like, come on, this is ancient Greece, whom are we kidding?
    However, I still feel way more comfortable saying he's very much straight - though most likely not without experience when it comes to guys, either

    @Alec Lightwood This boy is gay. Straight up 100% gay. Canon and confirmed.
    [​IMG]

    @Daryl Dixon In canon? Who tf knows. My personal headcanon is that he's demi/gay. Repressed, but gay. That's what I'm playing with on the board so I'm sticking to it and its' super slow going. He's got a thing going with Jesus and it's taken him fooooorever to get there. In the show, I could see an argument for ace Daryl but I just zero percent see Daryl as straight.

    @Eddie Kaspbrak This is a smol child who has been busy fighting clowns and having asthma attacks, so I doubt he's really put much thought into it ATM. I haven't read the book, but going by the movie verse and what I've seen on tumblr/discussions, I'd say he's gay and v. closeted. I'll be super interested to see what/if they do anything with it in the movie coming up next year with adult!eddie.

    Here I am with my one lonely character.

    @Noctis Lucis Caelum - I'm gonna have to go with bisexual, not that he's had any experience with anybody of any gender. He's way too awkward for that. But he's probably kind of closeted bisexual, because there's that understanding that he's gonna have to marry a lady someday for royal lineage and magical bloodline stuff and making cute babies.

    • @Chanel Oberlin: Very straight (because quite homophobic).
    • @Irina Clockworker: Asexual and I would almost say aromantic, because she only ever fell in love with one man her brother. She likes to play the seductress with her current medium, though!
    • @Kayo Sudou: Bisexual, but she's more into men!
    • @Mami Tomoe: I'd say that she's attracted to girls, even if she's still a teenager because of the canon elements that could make you believe she had feelings for some of her friends those are mandatory in a Magical Girl anime tbf

    okay my two gals rq

    @Sara Lance -- bisexual. this isn't even a headcanon, legends of tomorrow goes out of its way to assure you that she is bi at every given opportunity. that being said, she has a pretty obvious preference for women. part of that is just that, y'know, bi people naturally have preferences sometimes, but the other part of it is rooted in some of her previous trauma and her tendency to be a bit self-destructive re: the men she's attracted to. women she can flirt with and sleep with pretty casually, men... usually just require more trust and connection first.

    @Dolores Abernathy -- most people would probably field her as bi or pan, but she's. she just doesn't have enough conscious awareness of those kinds of identities to really feel more comfortable as one or the other. basically it boils down to the unfortunate reality that hosts are generally built without gender preferences, so guests can have free reign of who they want to romance, so to speak. i like to think that once she's fully conscious she'd maaaybe form some more individualized preferences and opinions on the whole thing, but she probably won't lean COMPLETELY towards a specific gender over any other.

    oh yeah might as well do this

    @Laurel Lance - definitely bisexual. if rumors are correct, this was supposed to be canon but got scrapped, so thanks canon. she's only dated men in the past, and she's not really conscious about her feelings for women. she hasn't really gotten a chance to reflect or explore that, but... it'd only take the right situation, or the right person. once she's more comfortable with that, i don't think she'd have much of a preference?

    @Veloce Visrin - In the webcomic, Veloce has shown precisely zero romantic interest in anyone so far and we're almost done with book 6 -- but! The author also casually draws an AU slice-of-life comic on the side where Veloce is in a loving relationship with another woman. So if she wasn't so closed off and paranoid and generally gripped by angsty backstory, I think Veloce would be perfectly happy with a girlfriend.

    @Oerba Yun Fang - The subtext between Fang and her longtime childhood friend Vanille is just so heavy that it's hard for me to see Fang as anything other than a lesbian. Many a fanfic has also argued a case for Fang and the other female playable character, Lightning, and you know what, I don't disagree.

    @Hime Yarizakura - Per the manga, Hime has a severe crush on her male childhood friend, Akina (I guess I have a thing for childhood friend pairings), and despite being surrounded by plentiful other female characters, Hime firmly treats them as friends. I'm pretty comfortable with the thought that she's straight.

    oh right meant to post here before now but accidentally forgot to whoops


    @Likulau -- in most any other case, this might be a little hard to pin down bc deities of his world dont have a static appearance as any gender and thus dont quite have a preference in the same way as humans would. a god could appea male to one mortal and female to another, or anything really; it all depends on how their worshippers imagine them, they dont have set characteristics themselves. that being said, he is gay. very, very super duper gay. thats because the sole mortal he hols any bit of interest in his a gay man and so he also chooses to reflect that preference. and because of that influence, he chooses to present as male and has a preference for men. so, hella gay.

    @Ruth -- if we were talking about pre-death, id just say "dog" and leave it at that. buuuuuut since were talking about him in the context of him being a faerie... fae dont really have a preference for gender, largely because romance for them also usually entails...feeding off of the person theyre in a relationship with... in that, hes very much pan. however, due to the fact that hes contracted with and forever bound to a girl who has become his sister, he doesnt even have any interest or drive to enter into any relationship. so, hes pan, but likely nothing will ever come out of it.

    Oh lord.

    @James McGill was a boy who sneaked peeks at porn magazines at the ripe young age of 12, so he is very very straight. I imagine if push came to shove and he had to adapt to a certain situation he might explore more, but it would just be another one of his cons-- or one of the many other things he'd keep tightly under wraps.

    @Qrow Branwen has been judging the length of women's skirts for decades and he too is very straight, though everyone and their dog likes to ship him with males and females. If Qrow was bisexual, I don't think he would broadcast that to anyone let alone acknowledge it himself. If he sees an attractive male body, I think he'd be more jealous than anything. But he is not shy about adult content, if no children are around.

    @Matilda Wormwood is just a child, but I imagine she'd grow up to be straight.

    @Danny Fenton -- Canon says straight for the most part since we only ever see him crushing on girls, but it's also a Nick show and came out in 2005. Personally, I headcanon Danny as Bi with a heavy lean towards women. It's not that he can't crush on a guy, he just hasn't found one that he's attracted to yet.

    @Lunafreya Nox Fleuret -- Straight as her trident. She is attracted to and was supposed to marry a man. She's technically still engaged though, but not sure how valid that is in Pandora what with the whole political marriage setup and how she doesn't really live long enough in canon to actually see it through.

    @Toboe -- Is a puppy. Thus, he gets to claim puppy status of too young for this stuff and isn't going to get older. He kind of had a bit of a flutter when he saw Cheza for the first time, but that was more instinctual excitement to meet the flower maiden. He might be straight if he was older, but that's not happening.

    @Link Well, since I have him now I might as well add him. I envision him as pansexual. That being said, I feel like he may also require an emotional connection, thus making him Demipansexual.

    This is old an I didn't even know this was a thread 8D

    @Dorian Pavus I mean... it's not really a headcanon 8D He's a gay wizard. 100%. Look at him. He's fabulous.

    @Drizzt Do'Urden is canonically a minimum of heterosexual because there is a girl in the books that he's into. I say a minimum of, because you never know. I don't think he's really thought about relationships in this way very much, if at all. His homeland is very... gender-divided and predjuced. The women are straight crazy. Then he's been living in the tunnels on his own, and he's just gotten to the surface. I'm going to say... pansexual. He just wants to form connections to people, whoever they are, and romantic relationship would just come from that.

    @Pietro Maximoff, sorry homeboi. He's clearly into women, since he flirts with them in the MCU and steals them dresses... but... he's kind of been throwing off closeted vibes when talk of guys being attracted to him comes up, and even though it is largely in jest... the muse says.... bisexual, largely women.. but you're going to have to pry real hard otherwise. He's already a sassypants. Good luck.

    @Ratonhnhaké:ton I feel like... he's straight with a question mark on the end. If he had any romance with a dude, it would like be like.. a bromance. He's Native American, and they historically don't have a negative association towards people with differing genders/sexuality, so I don't think he'd be really bothered by the idea.

    @Spyro Well, he's a dragon. He's 12. And he thinks relationships are just sad. But I also think that's just being an emotionally-stunted preteen boy, so... I dunno. Probably straight?

    Oh hey, this is neat.

    @Lusiphur Malaché is a die-hard heterosexual. Even after he's turned into a woman, he can't really bring himself to look at men-folk. It's just not his jam. Somehow, he manages not to get slapped by every woman he meets, too.

    @Ignis Scientia would be... demi. Bi, I think, but definitely demi.

    Bumping this again as I love this thread!

    Carrie White: I see her as demisexual/romantic. Her one and only experience with romance was a boy at prom and she is very repressed thanks to dear Mama, so it’s hard to say what she really prefers right now.

    Clara Oswin Oswald: Bisexual - very flirty, cheeky and comfortable in her own sexuality.

    Leia Organa: Straight, in love with Han and had a relationship in her teens with a boy.

    Misty Day: Pretty much just Delia-sexual, but I see her as a lesbian.

    Trish Walker: She appeared straight, dating a few men in the series but I believe the only person she’s ever been in love with is Jess. My head canon is that I think she’s likely always been a closeted or unaware bisexual (at least for Jess.)

    Sister Mary Eunice: Demiromantic, and though she’s likely never had a sexual experience before the devil took over, I see her as bisexual, leaning towards women. And as for the devil...well, anything goes.

    I forgot about this! I'ma update it with my other characters!

    Bill Denbrough: I see him as heterosexual. He's just a kid right now, but he did have a large crush on another girl, and he does grow up to marry a woman.

    Desmond Miles: Well, he's definitely heterosexual. He's got an illegitimate kid he doesn't know about, and had a thing for Lucy. But... if the right someone else came along, then... I wouldn't say no. lol

    Zevran Arainai: Uhhh... Canoncially pansexual and polyamorous. Not even a headcanon. lol He is attracted to many types and is pretty open about it.

    Emma Swan- I WOULD say straight, and probably should considering in her canon she's quite frankly bad boy crazy XD but I'd be lying if I said I didn't pick up a bicurious vibe, for example Let's be real; Emma's dress sense is pretty damn gay; Leather jacket, pocket tees, combat boots, baseball tees, beanies in the summer, plaid and flannel t-shirts. I could go on, and she rocks it all! So I'd say, she's Bisexual but hasn't had an "Awakening" to that side.

    Heather Chandler; Honestly Bi curious tendencies would make her a more fully rounded person, but nope; Straight as an arrow basic, what you see is what you get

    Clare Devlin: Well, this is an open and shut case;[​IMG]

    Most of my characters are listed already but:

    Jaesa Willsaam: My previous headcanon was confirmed with a recent chapter addition to SW:TOR where female player characters were finally able to initiate a romance with her. Not only is she romanceable in-game by both men and women but she's not narrow-minded when it comes to species either (she'll be as happy with a twi'lek or a cathar as a human). Granted this is game mechanics but whatever, I'm taking it as canon, so she is confirmed pansexual.

    Daenerys Targaryen: As I play Dany based mostly off the books (don't even talk to me about how she is portrayed in the show), I have always seen her as straight with some bisexual tendencies. She prefers men, but she has - in the books - slept with one of her handmaids a few times. Not romantically, and she didn't seem to enjoy it as much as she would have with a man (though this could simply be argued away by her husband having just died), but she was still a willing participant. I certainly wouldn't consider her fully bisexual, but I think if the right woman ever came along, she wouldn't be against giving it a go.

    Semirhage: Very pansexual. Doesn't give a shit. Lbr, she's painsexual too tbh, which isn't even a thing but you know what, I'm making it a thing just for her.

    I did this before but I only have one of the same charries so:

    @Pennywise aka IT – Technically speaking…this thing gets pregnant and is possibly female but also not female in a sense we would understand? Which indicates canonically something probably went down at some point. However it wouldn’t surprise me if IT can reproduce asexually because I really don’t see IT getting down and dirty with anything aside from itself because WOW that ego, only IT would be good enough for ITself. Pfft like anyone else is good enough or worthy though. Also ITs pathetically lonely boohoo. So I guess, Autosexual?

    @Billy Hargrove - How do you close a cabinet? You CLOSET. Yeah he's in that closet so far he found Narnia I s2g. In the show he specifically likes older married women and while I do think he gets off on luring them in, that's probably connected to some deep mommy issues from the past. He also over compensates by bullying attractive guys around his own age and, I mean, that's just classic bullying because he's in the closet behaviour. So I certainly write him that way!

    @Michael Langdon - Oh, Michael, my sweet child. Where do I even start you fascinating little precious creature. He is quite literally whatever you want him to be. I'mma just let Cody tell you, he said it so nicely: "In terms of his sexual nature, he needs to be very liquid in everything that he does," Fern described. "He needs to straddle the fence between what is considered feminine and what is considered masculine, between how he dresses and how he presents himself. I don't see the Antichrist as being--he doesn't have a sexual orientation. He is the embodiment of something sexual, so whatever that is in a person, whatever their deepest desire is, he'll draw out." So basically that. However that being said he never once gets it on in the show so I think he mirrors, reflects and represents people's desires and wants but he doesn't actually give a shit about fulfilling it for them, so don't expect him to be some hyper-sexed anti-christ around town, lmao, he'll seduce you but he won't give you a happy ending. ​

    Hal Jordan - Probably the straightest character I have, the only thing Hal loves more than women is his duty as a Lantern. Which often ruins his relationships with women. Though he's very comfortable with his own sexuality and the way his body looks, so he doesn't really mind people mentioning just how snug his Lantern outfit is on his ass from time to time. And the man certainly has a type when it comes to women, he literally goes head over heels for a badass lady who's a little bit authoritative and is absolutely willing to call him out on his shit at every corner.

    Tony Stark - Tony tends to be with women more often than not, but I'd say he's very pansexual and much like Hal is very comfortable with himself. He's Tony Stark, nobody can say or do anything to him that he either hasn't said to himself, that his father hasn't already told him or done to him. And since he's very much so touch starved so his type tends to be very flexible given the man just wants to be held from time to time.

    Bucky Barnes - Buck is also pretty damn straight, he's not really into many people romantically since he sees himself as just another man broken beyond repair. So, unless he finds someone capable of finding a way past the barrier he tends to put up with people, the man's likely going to stay in his broody corner.

    Erik Lehnsherr - Also straight, has a number of kids but for some people tend to assume from the way he dresses that he's gay. Which isn't true, or else he would have already been with his platonic soul mate Charles.

    Odin - The God of Wisdom and War at the moment is Friggasexual since he misses his dead wife and wants nothing more than to be with her in the afterlife. But besides that, he's likely Pansexual given how Asgardians sort of just view all that as normal I'd say. But also he's had a fling with cosmic energy known as the Pheonix force....thousands of years before it inhabited a kid named Jean.

    Since I have all new characters!

    Nancy - I hesitate to define Nancy one way or the other because there's only been one season of the show, and romance/sex really isn't a huge part of it (which is super refreshing tbh??). There is some definite chemistry between Nancy and the priest, Father Ventura, so it's safe to say she is attracted to men (or maybe just alcoholic Holy men with sad pasts???). That's not to say that she'd never be attracted to women.

    Vignette - it's actually canon in Vignette's world for fae to be pansexual/panromantic. They see others for who they are and don't really care about race or appearance (at least not in the sense that appearance applies to gender). Love and sex are often intermingled, but not exclusively so. Fae are also capable of loving very deeply and passionately without sex. Sex isn't something that makes or breaks a relationship as it often is with humans. For example, Vignette was once in a sexual and romantic relationship with another fae woman named Tourmaline. However, they became separated during the Pact war and Vignette met and fell in love with Philo, a man. Vignette and Tourmaline were reunited soon after, and though Tourmaline expressed some regret that Vignette had fallen in love with someone else, there was no bitterness directed toward Vignette. In fact, the two continued to express deep love and affection for one another throughout the show, and it was clear that they wanted only what was best for the other. Their relationship/friendship always came first, where sex was secondary.

    Emerald - I honestly don't get super strong feelings one way or the other. While Emerald is solely devoted/loyal to Cinder, I've never gotten sexual or romantic vibes from that bond. I can understand where someone else might interpret it that way, though! I love the idea of her and Mercury as a ship, but I can see why someone else might just see it as a friendship/bond of teammates (keep in mind I have not seen the most recent volume all the way through). When I don't have any clear indications one way or the other, I tend to rp my characters as fairly fluid and kind of go with the flow of writing as far as seeing who they mesh with in that way.
