lmao y’all sayin claire/moira can’t be a thing because “claire is too old for her!!!!!” but chris was 40 in RE6 and piers was 26 and y’all think it’s ok for them to suck each other off and ride each other’s ass smh
I’d be straight-up willing to bet real cash American dollars that if the rumors are true and Barry’s in Revelations 2, and you see him alongside any other male character, you will see 10 times more Barry/dude than Claire/Moira even if the game provides a handy wheelbarrow full of Claire/Moira ship bait
and yeah, Claire’s 32 at most in Revelations 2 (19 in RE2 in 1998 and Revelations 2 is between RE5 and RE6 so it’s in 2009-2011) so a 20-year-old and a 32-year-old hooking up should not be anywhere near anyone’s squick radar. that’s just people trynna justify a preference and right-thinking souls should not let them skate on that noise
seriously though Resident Evil ‘fic lesbians now is your time
rise up from your slumber of eons and dive into the game universe where there is no Alice but there are plentiful superior options
for some reason, I now keep imagining Claire and Wolverine drinking coffee and complaining about how no matter what they do they end up with young female sidekicks/wards.
(but seriously, it’s a brand-new Resident Evil game with two female non-sexualized protagonists in the Year of Our Lord 2015, probably passes the Bechdel Test already, playable female lead, etc. Nobody’s played it yet. Complaining just to get your cynical internet snark hat on—and that is exactly what you are doing—is stupid)
if she isn’t in the game at launch, I think I would actually pay real dollars for Alyson Court voice-acting DLC for Claire.
I’m not sure there’s an actual story here but somehow I wrote it anyway, and now it seems to be stuck, and rather than putting it nowhere I may as well put it up here
idle thought of the day: i wonder if some of the people who will show up and complain about racial/gender/LGBTQ representation in scifi (i.e. Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm, etc.) are specifically thinking of the really stupid shit that happened in the ’60s and later when ostensibly progressive writers tried to show how down they were and ended up with something embarrassing written on their tombstones
Like, they’re not phrasing it very well, but they’re thinking of that Superman story “I am Curious (Black)” where Lois turns brown for a day and the original Eisner run on The Spirit and other works on that basic tier and just going, wait, no, do not do this again
It’s still stupid but at least it’s stupidity that’s coming from a slightly more understandable place than just being young and/or privilege-blind
I wonder how long it’ll be before Melinda May and Skye get worked into the 616. if nothing else Not Chun-Li Really as a SHIELD agent would work pretty well in the Secret Avengers book
although Skye reminds me way too much of Suzi Endo.
overall though I think this show’s going to do the “Buffy” arc where it’s only truly worth watching in the second and third seasons and the rough spots have been sanded off
