Paul Taylor‘s Wapsi Square: SHIT JUST GOT REAL. For reals, though, what I <3 about Paul’s writing is that rape is not the only big bad in this scene: that Brandi would have to watch them torture Jin, that three girls would have to choose between suicide and burning to death, that this torture of innocents was so horrific it knocked the world off its temporal axis… wow.

I don’t know if this DeviantArt link will count for anything, but it’s a fan-fic about a gender-bent Lelouche from Code Geass…I really loved it just ‘cuz I wanted Lelouche to be a girl and imagined him as such because, y’know DAT DEARTH OF FEMALE LEAD CHARACTERS (even though anime/manga has a better ratio than western works) but this comment by Skypirating bugs me and I think warrants discussion:
“I can’t see how switching his gender will change the story in any way. It’s not an interesting plot twist, or any kind of plot twist at all – unless his personality were to change, in which case he would be a different character and the gender-bending would be pointless.”
I’m not eloquent (and too cowardly) to leave a reply explaining why just switching Lelouche’s gender and nothing else is interesting enough but maybe my fellow Hathorites could take a crack?
