Gratuitous Rape in Fantasy novels. Thread starter Hex Start date Jan 20, Status Not open for further replies. Hex Write, monkey, write. ed Mar 3, Messages 6, Location Edinburgh.
So, I was hi-jacking Glitch's thread sorry, Glitch ranting on about rape and virginity but it maybe deserves a whole thread of its own. Slightly coincidentally, Maggie Stiefvater posted this on livejournal on Friday, a post talking about reading five books in a row in which the main Chicks wih dicks character undergoes a gratuitous rape. So there's the pitfall of having a rape Mom sexually abuses son the story where the character bounces back apparently unbothered, but there's also the problem of rape being a shorthand for A-Fate-Worse-Than-Death for a woman but not a man?
What do you think? I hope this makes sense. Scooby Doo is on in the background Mouse ejtett.
ed Jun 2, Messages 10, Location Devon. Rape fantasy fiction said:. Click to expand Jo Zebedee Aliens vs Belfast. ed Oct 5, Messages 18, Location blah - flags. So many flags. I will weigh in because I am one of those writers who has used rape, and I did a lot of thinking about it before I wrote about it. Mine was about a male rape victim, but I think many of the same arguments Trane nomenclature breakdown. I didn't set out to write about such a thing happening, Hot black teen strip when the book took it's own way, as they do, the situation he was in made any other outcome difficult to imagine.
As some of the poor people here know, having read early drafts and later drafts, and many s, I spent months deciding on the approach not just to the act that was easy enough, I did it off camera, and chose Captain picards counselor only have it directly referred to by the main character once, in a very private conversation with his wifebut also the impact. I explored the sexual fall out, the fall out on relationships, the fallout on friendships, particularly those who were aware of the act and unable to help, and spent about words getting them to the place where they had in any way come to terms with it.
I have no problem with rape as a storyline provided a.
The Teen mmf stories I did threw up, very clearly, that there are no quick fixes for a rape victim. I'm currently working on a new wip and it's looking at female pioneers in space, and harsh colonies, where, perhaps, there is a reversion to more traditional roles.
As a passionate supporter of women, it was something I really wanted to explore, as I think in sff the female protagonist is often not written in a way I think either empowers Submissive erotica tumblr, or brings anything new to the traditional views.
Rape is one such trope which continues the circle of cliche and tokenism.
Domestic violence which I think is on the radar in the one I'm writing, because it is another thing I am passionate about having done a lot of training with Women's Aid and seen the fall out it causesis another. And one side of domestic violence is often silent rape ie rape that happens in relationships and is often not viewed as the same. If it comes up, and I am not sure it will, I'm not far enough into it yet, it will be done in Bedtime stories for boyfriend way that's researched, valid, and considers the long-term effects.
If we write about these sorts of things, we need to Seducing your teacher responsible for them, I think, and Rape fantasy fiction put a book down when I don't think it is, or choose not to read the Stories of zoophilia, which is what I did with a book this year when I wasn't comfortable with its approach.
Victoria Silverwolf Vegetarian Werewolf. This is a very important and complex issue. Like any other form of violence, sexual assault can be used appropriately in fiction for its emotional impact. It can also be used in an inappropriate, exploitative way, of course. I can recall a time in the 's when The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction seemed to print a lot of stories in which child sexual Wow worgen paladin often incest was used as a theme.
At times it seemed as if some of these stories were using this theme for its shock value only. I cannot be sure of this, of course, without reading the minds of the authors.
My point is that one must judge each work of fiction on its own. No theme should be forbidden, but the reader is free to condemn a work which uses its themes in an inappropriate way. As far as the idea of a woman being "ruined" by a sexual assault, if such an attitude is appropriate to its setting a historical one, perhaps, or Boys forced to wear girl clothes fictional patriarchal societyit could be part of an effective work of fiction. If I got the feeling that a modern author actually agrees with such a point of view, I Ruthie camden nude have a problem with that.

Beast boy and starfire lemon fanfiction post, springs. The Judge Truth. Staff member. Regarding the blog-post, without knowing the works to which she refers it's difficult to argue whether the rapes in them might be slightly more legitimate, as it were -- for instance, if rape is genuinely the worst thing that the female character fears, no matter how "wrong" that might seem looked at Dressing room peeks, since it's the result of Rape fantasy fiction societal norms, then having a man attempt to mug her and break her arm isn't going to push her into the same trauma, which trauma might be necessary for the novel.
From what she says, it certainly doesn't appear that any of those novels could claim any such legitimacy, but it isn't the portrayal of rape which is the problem, it's the question of whether it is gratuitous, and whether the same plot point Crossdresser kissing guy be reached by different means. I also see that the adult fantasies she read were contemporary, and I don't think her arguments entirely hold water in the context of fantasies which aren't set wholly in the modern era, or even those which are Rachel bilson nipple but are set in some non-Western locales.
True, even then gratuitous rape for the purpose of titillation is still highly objectionable, but if the society portrayed is one where the status of women is Wife fucks house guest part defined by their sexual nature, then again an assault which is non-sexual won't have the same repercussions for that character. AnyaKimlin Confuddled. I have also written about rape although not in my fantasy. Like Mouse says every case and every person is different.
Ship of magic by robin hobb
My story is about male rape which is just as appalling if not more so for the victim because there is a shame that they allowed it to happen. It is amazing how many people Sissify me tumblr to a man he must have wanted it or he wouldn't have got hard.
It was my detectives and I opted not to write the rape itself but the story was about finding the rapist and how their relationship changed and mutated. I did it for NaNoWriMo and off the back of a my story I summary I received three beautiful, heartrending s, two from Sister made me wear a dress who had been raped and one from the wife of a man who had.
They wanted me to write the story and offered me as much help as I needed. I think to portray rape you are always going to misrepresent some people but I think it is worth the effort to portray the effects as accurately Futa interactive story with as much care as possible. ed Mar 8, Messages 1, Location London.
I have a problem with it. It seems to me that you can't get away from the issue of rape in a male-dominated, medieval fantasy setting. A lot of authors might claim that as an excuse for writing it in. Yet we don't write historical fiction. You are the author; you can bend the rules. Eliminating rape may be unrealistic but equally dwelling on it with the kind of fetishism some authors do is equally wrong, and in the end only perpetuates the kind of male-dominated sausage fests that epic fantasies often are, sprinkled occasionally with a fair damsel elf waif in distress for coital satisfaction or child rearing duties.
Like springs, in my current WIP there is a prison situation. It's a mixed prison and there are mentions of rape no description. One of my female MCs is well-renowned as a leader and revolutionary in the prison. She instigates a 'bartering' system Boyfriend fattening me up story the male prisoners can take what they want from the females, with their consent and for a fair price.
This isn't dwelled on but only mentioned. I haven't done any research on this, Rape fantasy fiction now Gaggle of hens wondering if it's a true representation or Demon impregnation erotica.
