joiedecombat: (I'm okay)
Things I did not quite realize about my preferences re: fiction until tonight:

1) I like characters whose personalities are based almost if not entirely on their single-minded, obsessive, usually silent devotion to another person. (For example, Hagi from Blood+.)

2) I also apparently like it when characters get their arms cut off. Especially if they have to do the cutting-off themselves, because that's badass.

Sadly, Le Chevalier d'Eon is proving to have much less genderfuck than I'd hoped... although "Everyone knew his sister" is still at least a once-an-episode occurrence and the Queen of England's behavior is awfully subtexty, I am just saying. Also, aw, Durand.

Still hooked on Mass Effect, yes. I've been dabbling with a male Shepard to see how I like it, and although I'm not very far in yet, I have to say that I much prefer female!Shepard so far.

Why is that?

Cut for spam and nattering about gender roles, yay. No particular spoilers. )
