Jenn. 20 something living in the DC metro. This used to be a multi-fandom blog and then Marvel happened. Expect a mixed bag of television, comics, science, politics, and wailing about my inability to Adult properly. But mostly Marvel. And a hell of a lot of Steve/Tony. *In an effort to keep my dash manageable, I do not follow tumblrs that don't use tags. Use tags! They are handy and make the world a nicer place!*
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.
