Technically speaking, shouldn’t asexual/aromantic be the default sexuality for a character? Shouldn’t we assume that a character does not want to have sex until they tell us or in some instances imply (in this case meaning explicitly act upon the idea—none of this blurred lines crap) that they…
Because having a sexuality is the norm, that’s why.
But asexuality is a sexuality, just like hetero-, homo-, bi-, or pansexuality. Moreover, it’s a neutral sexuality.
The logical way to look at a character, whether it’s your oc, or someone else’s would be to begin at a neutral ground, then use the relationships developed throughout the story to justify their sexual orientation.
It’s the same way we discover our own sexualities. Children start out at a basically unsexual level (yeah, I know that’s not a word.) As we grow up, we develop relationships and those relationships show us who we’re attracted to.
I’m not saying that the characters would always be asexual. I’m saying we give them a neutral sexuality to begin with, so we don’t default them one way or the other, all the time. We discover their sexuality the way we would discover a normal person’s.
Simultaneously the worst and best movie ever made
Actually one of my teachers watched every single version of Romeo and Juliet with the original text in front of him to prove that this was the worst version, but to his great dismay its the most accurate film adaptation of it, with the lines closest to the original text and most similar stage direction and relayed emotions.
He proceeded to show it to us in class.
