Okay so I feel like people really do not understand fetishization. Like, accusing KS of that is Wrong?? Like, listen, I’m a queer girl (so don’t bother dumping that straight people BS on me), and I have read a lot of yaoi, BL, yuri, GL, etc. and let me tell you something. KS is the least sexual BL/yaoi I’ve ever read, barring the like super cutesy and fluffy kind.
That’s right. You heard me. It is almost entirely unsexy, and the only scenes of sexual content are either interrupted, extremely brief, or focusing on the developing dependence between them rather than the act itself. The sexual content is not “fetishy” and the manhwa isn’t “porn with plot.” I mean, there have been a handful of scenes with sexual content, but they were hardly what I would call explicit. I mean, have you read a yaoi lately? I’m guessing not.
This manhwa was certainly not written by a 13yo and frankly? I’m actually offended on the author’s behalf. How dare you. You owe the author an apology for that. The writing of this manhwa is better than half the things I’ve read lately. It’s consistent and well-paced, not to mention suspenseful without being frustrating. The dark themes are extremely well-handled and are probably more the reason for the rating than the barely their sexual content.
Do me a favor and read through some of Blood Bank (great manhwa, btw) and compare them. THAT reads more as porn with plot to me, though the tone is shifting by the later chapters. The beginning has some kind of sexual content in nearly every chapter, enough that the plot is actually slowed down considerably.
You CHOSE to read a manhwa called KILLING STALKING and expected what? Some kind of healthy little romance? Really? You thought it wouldn’t be dark and potentially upsetting? If you’re so against it, then why did you waste your own damn time reading it??
Personally, I am fascinated by Killing Stalking. As a writer, I’m amazed with the characters and the little details that have been used to build the world. I’m amazed that the author can write something so dark with such consistency and flare, not to mention grace. The relationship building is deeply flawed and unhealthy. Obviously. The two main characters are a serial killer and a stalker. If their relationship was healthy, I’d be disappointed. The complexities of their choices and their motives is what draws me in in the first place.
How do you feel about people who enjoy Dext/er, I wonder? Or Break/ing Bad? What about The Sopr/anos? Hann/ibal? Or any other show about criminals? Are they also sick and horrible? Or is it just because the relationship is abusive that you have a problem? Is it the inclusion of abuse and sex in the context of a relationship between two men? Do you really think that enjoying reading about criminals is something new?? People are always fascinated by the darker side of things. It’s why film noir and true crime and detective fiction in general is still so popular.
Scared they may be, but people are still fascinated by the dark and what lurks within it. If you’re having nightmares or panic attacks, obviously you should stop reading it. Don’t read things you find that scary. For me, I only have trouble with supernatural horror, so this kind of thing is really interesting and intense. I enjoy reading it. I’m on the edge of my seat with every new chapter I read, wondering what’s going to happen next. Finding a story the captures my attention so fully is extremely rare for me, and frankly nothing anyone says will convince me not to keep reading.
If you want to try, you’re welcome to. I won’t stop you or even bother to block you. Hell, I’ll engage if you want. But no one’s ever taken me up on the invitation before, so I doubt anyone’ll bother now.
(okay so I accidentally deleted this so reposting it whoops)
because this sweet angel needs more appreciation
she raised Alcyoneus with her powers at like the age of 12 or 13????
and then she proceeds to stop raising him, so she caUSES AN ERUPTION THAT BLOWS UP AN EFFING ISLAND??
an I S L A N D
then might i remind you that she knew that she’d be risking her own life + she’d get an angry primordial after her
Hazel saves the world b4 Percy Jackson (pass the dam message)
she gives up Elysium, ETERNAL PEACE AND HAPPINESS to save her mother – who basically used her as a money making machine – from ETERNAL DAMNATION (which she should deserve)
she survives the hellish roman wolf training thing with a bunch of wolves which might I add is fucking TERRIFYING because you are being trained by WOLVES who will E A Tyou if they decide that you’d be a lousy soldier
and then she somehow travels all the way to Camp Jupiter from Wolf House. This itself should be some major accomplishment
and she is a big 3 kid aware of her powers and stuff how many monsters do you think she had to fight to get there????
Hazel tames ARION who is said to be tamed by the STRONGEST FEMALE WARRIOR
and friendly reminder that the Amazons are savage female warriors that worship Ares ( the god of war ), Bellona ( goddess of war ) and Athena ( goddess of war strategy)
DO YOU SEE THE PATTERN??
In Alaska, Hazel defeats the giant that she almost raised a few decades back ( with the help of the amazing panda bear Zhang )
Now this is a theory which is totally possible bec i have hard evidence with me, So remember that time she picked up a bunch of battle gear from the water in SoN?? And that time she stole Narcissus’ shield from him with her powers in MoA??
Now imagine her doing that but to people actually fighting her like she can pull out swords from the enemies hands
SHE STANDS UP TO A LITERAL GODDESS BY SAYING THAT SHE’LL MAKE HER OWN PATH
She uses Scirion’s own trick against him with the help of the mist, and it was the FIRST TIME SHE EVER USED THE MIST
She beats Pasiphaë WITH THE MIST, and might i remind you that Pasiphaë is supposed to be AMA-ZHANG at using the mist??
bitch you thought
okay there that’s it, I probably missed something but that’s okay because it’s sort of 2 in the morning and i have homework bye

how does squip feel about when someone mentions illuminati? is he in the illuminati
we all know that the number 3 is commonly associated with the illuminati because of triangles. lucky for us, i have a calculator on hand.
the letters s, q, u, i, and p are letter numbers 19, 17, 22, 9, and 16 respectively. these add up to 83, which contains a 3 in it.
“squip” stands for “super quantum unit intel processor,” and these words have 5, 7, 4, 5, and then 9 letters in them. these numbers add up to 30, which also has a three in it.
if you add 83 and and 30 together, you get 113 which ALSO has a 3. if you multiply 113 by two, since it’s an effed up world but it’s a two-player game, but the squip does his best to separate those two players, you get 226.
the word “squip” is used in the script 226 times. this can’t possibly be a coincidence, you say. yes, i reply. i know.
more specifically, the squip is mentioned in stage/script directions 142 times, and is mentioned in songs 51 times. but how many times is he mentioned in spoken lines?
if you take 226 and subtract the amount of time he is mentioned for the purpose of the script, 142, then you would get 84.
(speaking of the number 84, the original cast recording was posted on october 27, 2016 and the audio bootleg of the musical was posted on may 1, 2017. 27 plus 1 is 28. where does 84 come into this? 84 divided by 28 equals 3.)
but back to the spoken lines about the squip. if you subtract 51, which is the amount of times he is mentioned in song, from 84, you would get the number of times the squip is mentioned in spoken lines: 33 times.
