"While many people think fanfiction is about inserting sex into texts (like Tolkien’s) where it doesn’t belong, Brancher sees it differently: “I was desperate to read about sex that included great friendship; I was repurposing Tolkien’s text in order to do that. It wasn’t that friendship needed to be sexualized, it was that erotica needed to be … friendship-ized.” Many fanfiction writers write about sex in conjunction with beloved texts and characters not because they think those texts are incomplete, but because they’re looking for stories where sex is profound and meaningful. This is part of what makes fan fiction different from pornography: unlike pornography, fanfic features characters we already care deeply about, and who tend to already have long-standing and complex relationships with each other. It’s a genre of sexual subjectification: the very opposite of objectification. It’s benefits with friendship."

Und immer noch ein herrliches und herrlich wahres Zitat. ❤
Genau das ist es!

Ich habe gerade ganz viel getippt, darüber, wie episch Frodo und Sam sind (und Legolas und Gimli) und wenn die Sex haben, dann ist das ganz sicher nichts, was da nicht hingehört.

Dass Tolkien es nicht reingebracht hat ist verständlich, aber die Zeiten haben sich geändert und oh Gott, ich sollte den Kommentar auch löschen.

Alles was ich sagen will, ist: ich stimme dem Zitat zu. <3
