corseque:

do you imagine if kylo was a woman and she knelt to Snoke and said disbelievingly, “I’ve given everything I have to you” and then Snoke demanded her to expose herself to him, and derided her while touching her exposed face with his fingers (like he did in the deleted scene, and in both novelizations) that viewers would suddenly understand that dynamic? Like…. this is a bad gender thing, right?

I had a whole draft post about all of this, how the dynamic would be heightened and changed to such a degree if Kylo was a woman, and I ended up deleting it because I just… didn’t want to depress myself. But yeah. I think about this for sure. The predatory implications of it just get exponentially creepier in that case, because they’re absolutely there to begin with. 

I’d wanna say if Kylo were a woman they’d tone it down bc they wouldn’t have to be fighting against gender bias to get across the same point (ie there’s a LOT of really predatory and uncomfortably sexual subtext and imagery in Kylo and Snoke’s relationship as-is, but the extent of it is probably influenced by the fact that people aren’t primed to interpret interactions btwn an adult man and his adult… mentor? idk even what to call snoke, as predatory or sexual, so they end up seeming a lil ham-fisted once u pay attention). People are missing the painfully obvious themes of victimization in Kylo’s narrative bc we as a society are predisposed to interpret women and only women as victims, and it’s a big old stinking problem, but it’s how it is, so imo were Kylo a woman the dynamic would be the same as it is, but they’d be a lot subtler in expressing it, bc they could afford to be, bc the slightest creepy gesture from Snoke towards Rey sends out just…resounding waves of YUCK, and it’d only be more noticeable w/ a female Kylo

Daisuke Niwa: A Primer

riku7se:

Generally, I feel lucky to know that one of my favorite characters of all time (if not my FAVORITE EVER) is generally well loved in our small fandom, both in the manga and in the anime adaptation.

But I can’t help but notice that in many fanworks, Daisuke’s characterization is…well, it’s a little off.  A lot of this I can attribute to the anime, which took Daisuke’s base character and sort of stripped away some other personality traits to create more of an “every man” protagonist.  But even then, anime!Daisuke still has a few moments where his manga counterpart shines through…so the issue of Daisuke’s representation in fandom still stands.

So I present to you a primer on Daisuke Niwa (as rambly as it might be)

REASONS TO READ DNANGEL THAT IM COMING UP WITH ON THE SPOT CAUSE THE LAST TIME I READ IT THE WHOLE WAY THROUGH WAS LAST YEAR MMMM…

• STORY?????? CHARACTERS??????? HOLY FUCK LITERALLY SOME OF THE BEST WRITTEN CHARACTERS EVER?????????

• IT S SO MANY THINGS AND REALLY GOOD AT ALL THOSE THINGS??? DRAMA? IT GOOD. COMEDY? IT GOOD. ROMANCE? JESUS FUCK DONT GET ME STARTED

• Two major characters are twin girls, one short-haired and tough and sporty and one dressy and romantic and at no point are either of them criticized by the narrative for being “tomboyish” or “too girly”

• The art is Wow

• Smallish but nice and cool fandom please come and join our crying circle

• the anime adaptation was absolute shit but it got Miyu Irino as Daisuke and Akira Ishida as Hiwatari and they did a reading of a few pages of chapter in a scene with just the two of them and it s so beautiful I once cried while listening to it

• “it’s not gay if it’s selfcest”

I don’t wanna finish this one. It really was hard to force myself not to. But it’s better like that.

With thoughts of one of my most favourite artists Michail Vrubel.

Thanks to @jesusonthetortillas for the inspiration, though it’s totally not what you’ve asked me for. Sorry)
