Jesus guys, can we talk about episode 24? Lord, I’m a big weenie and had to pause three billion times and run downstairs and back up like 6 times (Carmilla keeps you fit) for not even 4 minutes of content but boy was it so freaking powerful.

Damn, I love Danny with all my big gay heart, I do but I loved seeing this scene, seeing Laura have agency and man tell her without any shadow of a doubt “I really like you but you’re doing something wrong and enough of that.”

This protectiveness, this “I decide things for you.” thing is romanticized and used time and time again and frankly I kinda hate it. 

If I had a Euro for every time I saw it in fics or even in published lesbian novels, and I mean by queer ladies for queer ladies ( though here you’ll find all kinds of kickass books full of queer ladies of every flavour) kinda deal the big, tall protector and her little lady ( normally a blonde and brunette but thats another discussion) I’d be veritably rich right now.

And funny enough while we seem to have grown to dislike that when its a guy doing that to a girl, apparently we are still super ok with seeing that when two ladies are involved, judging by the sheer volume of such narratives I see.

It would have been easy for the freaking kickass writers do the same in Carmilla but they go above and beyond and gave Laura, tiny way in over her head freshman Laura, full on damn agency and had her call out someone she really cares about and admires and has a lady boner the size of the moon for.

This whole wow so sexy, very overprotective thing is something that doesn’t sit right with me and of course one’s mileage may vary on this but it’s good being shown something different.

I, for one, applaud the writing team for the way they handled this, 10/10 would super recommend and Elise Bauman and Sharon Belle that delivered it with such freaking mad skills I’m still can’t even-ing here.

One very feels murdered creampuff,

Wolfie out.
