Dear friends, I realise that the reason that you follow this blog is because of the amusing/odd/weird pictures I take and other ones I share about my wonderful city. And I thank you all for that. Never did I imagine that I would have over 1500 followers, because I really just started taking…
Look, no-one said I was or wasn’t writing Coulson in Secret Avengers as gay. One beautiful thing about fiction is that we fill it with our own meanings. For example: was Coulson really created and written straight, instead of, let’s say, bisexual? How do you even do that unless you explicitly identify him as straight and choose to believe the character is telling the truth? You see my point? In case you don’t: fiction is infinitely malleable. There is no certainty, and there is no certainty in the universe, except perhaps change.
I sense a certain dose of entitlement in your request — which, by the way, says a lot about you and nothing about the fiction you consume. I don’t react to entitlement well, but I am transforming my initial reaction into something positive here, and perhaps you’ll use that as a guiding light for yourself, too. Perhaps the question you want to ask yourself is, “Why am I so hung up on my perception of a fictional character’s theoretically heterosexual identity, and does me being hung up on it have anything to do with my possible uncertainty regarding my own sexual identity?”
It might. It might not. U-decide.
I just became a fan of Ales Kot. Now to figure out what he writes and buy it.
Zero (vol. 1 is out, vol. 2 comes out in 10 days), Change, Winter Soldier. And Secret Avengers.
