darkauthor26: ([books]Fuck You Said the Raven)
I love this man. I'm still reading American Gods and I encountered a casual mention of bisexuality. I actually had to do a double take it was that nonchalant. An older sister is talking to her younger sister who mentions meeting a cute boy while hitching hiking and she says half-jokingly, "After the bitch-from-hell maybe I'm ready to give boys another shot." The sisters continue bickering over the younger sister's habit of hitch hiking as if that line (revealing she's bisexual or at least bi-curious) never happened.

Also, is it sad that I thought "wow, there's a lot of GLBT characters in this", despite the fact there have only been two? It's kind of sad when two (minor) GLBT characters counts as "a lot."

However, back to my original point: I love you, Neil Gaiman.

I'm loving this book. It's now one of my favorites. I'll post something more coherent later covering more of my reasoning for placing this book in my top favorites. Because there's a lot of reasons, and not all of them are things I can explain. Maybe I'll write it up after I finish the book.

I watched the first episode of a new British lesbian drama called Lip Service. It's pretty good. It's kind of like The L Word, but it's also very different. It has a different kind of feel to it. Frankie (see my icon) reminds me of Shane.

I feel really bad for Frankie. The way she broke down after seeing her aunt at the wake make me sad; I wanted to punch her uncle in the face for being such a jerk to her. She doesn't have the best judgment, and she's clearly afraid of commitment and that hurts the people she loves, but at the same time she's vulnerable, and I want to give her a hug. :( And I want her and Cat to get together. I love the way they interact, and the way that Cat understands Frankie, and how Cat's there for her even though she's pissed at Frankie and wants to forget about her feelings for her. I don't think I've ever shipped a pairing this quickly before. But I want them to work out. I really do.

I also want to know what Frankie's (now deceased) aunt had to tell her that she couldn't tell anyone else.

All in all, while there are some things that I find incredibly unrealistic (WHY AREN'T LESBIANS THIS EASY TO FIND IN REAL LIFE?), I think it's a real interesting show, and I'll definitely watch the next episode. I found it on youtube; I'll watch it tomorrow. :)
