I've tried writing several descriptions for this, and none of them seemed to fit. I just...I feel like for someone who has so many things that isolate him from others (his homosexuality, his atheism, his autism, etc.), to have something that is crafted towards them, like a simple bedtime story, is the best thing in the world.
It's even better when the subject is not made the focus of the story but is just casual and natural.
Also, on a sidenote, R.J.'s parents (and R.J. himself) sort've guessed that he was gay, and both Marion and Richard coaxed R.J. into being okay with it (since because of his autism R.J. had a really hard time adjusting to all his differences and how society could take them).
Also, since R.J. takes so much after Marion in personality and intelligence (in fact it's probably her side of the family that gave him his autism), Marion finds it surprising that he as Richard's taste in romantic partners (as both father and son go crazy for gingers).
Anyway, just a little somethin'-somethin' I wanted to get out.
