ah, the fallacy of looking for “intent” - someone obviously skipped the “intro to close reading” course at university….
NO EVERYTHING MUST BE TAKEN LITERALLY AND THE WORD OF THE WRITER IS LAW.
Death of the author, Anon! Barthes! Tell ‘em, Catlady!
And also! The thing I find offensive here is the implication that it would be BAD if Fraser was gay/bisexual. You can dress it up as wanting equality between the Rays all you like, but all this furious denial looks more like homophobia from where I’m standing.
How did you end up liking Gunless, out of curiosity?
Ah, well, I’ve actually seen it before? I just didn’t know it was on netflix.
It’s good though! The perfect mixture of unironic and not-taking-itself-too-seriously. All in all, while it’s not the best Paul Gross movie I’ve ever seen, it’s still something I enjoy when I want to watch a movie that’s just…fun.
I thought I set the bar for success suitably low in that all I want from any film is that it should contain Paul Gross and CKR being very attractive together for an hour and a half; if those elements are in place, it pretty much can’t fail to make me happy. Gunless seemed to promise so much on that front, but then it failed to deliver! CKR was hardly in it and they barely interact! It was also the only Paul Gross screen appearance I can think of where I wasn’t overpoweringly attracted to him (and you all know the depth of my feelings for Paul Gross so that’s really saying something). The long hair, just, ugh. No. So I felt cheated - it was a wasted opportunity, dammit! A wasted opportunity that may never come again! I just want CKR and Paul Gross to co-star in something homoerotically together again, is that really so much to ask from life? I don’t think it is.
This fanfic is basically how I wanted it to go: http://archiveofourown.org/works/416048
