As readers are aware, I am not a fan of the Twlight phenomenon in any form. But one thing has become obvious even to a militant non-fan such as myself. The consensus is clear, the werewolf is cuter than the vampire.
Out there in the naughty image blogosphere, there are remarkably few pictures of Edward Cullen. Jacob the werewolf, however, is clearly very popular, even omnipresent, in slash/fake celeb picture realm.
For those not-in-the-know, slash fiction is erotic writing pairing male heroes, or heroes-and-villians–Spock/Kirk, Bodie/Doyle, Harry/Snape, etc; it has its pictorial equivalent. The written version is dominated by women, the pictorial version has a higher male fanbase, as one would expect. Supernatural—which has inspired its own slash subgenre of Wincest–even included a scene commenting on slash. (Supernatural can have its moments, including a lot of fun with the couple line.)
One of the fun features in looking at religious art is decoding the (pretty thinly disguised) queer subtext that turns up here and there. Film poster art often begs to be decoded, in all sorts of ways. So, decode this Twilight movie poster.
This is also the Saturday chit-chat post.
