Such prejudice informed his decision to make Kieren bisexual – a deftly-handled element of his character that, for some of the locals, is an even bigger taboo than being a living corpse. “That was the thing I wanted: this poor lad – he’s killed himself, he’s come back, he’s done all this horrible stuff in his untreated state, and now he has to go back to this village with people who didn’t even like him when he was living. I always saw Kieren as me.”

Dominic Mitchell, from this article in The Independent

Just a friendly reminder that Kieren Walker is, in fact, a bisexual protagonist without being a cliché.

In The Flesh Network

what it is: this blog was created for the simple purpose of bringing together fans of this amazing show.  because the fandom is so small, i saw an opportunity to not only help it grow, but to connect all of us through our shared love of kieren walker and his PDS friends

things i need from you: it’s totally okay if you’re a multifandom blog, but you have to have some sort of ITF on your blog if you want to be a part of this network. (it would be pointless to add someone who hardly ever shows interest in the show anyway.)  i will only accept those of you who post about ITF at least a little regularly.  and please make sure your ask is open, or else i can’t send you a message telling you whether or not you got accepted!

want to join? here’s how: 

  1. reblog this post (likes don’t count, sorry)
  2. send me an ask telling me that you actually want to be involved

after you get accepted: all blogs that send me a message and meet the few requirements i have will be accepted!  just send me a short description of you and your blog and a 100px x 100px image to use as your icon. (if you’re sending your message from a blog that isn’t the one you intend on having others see, just give me the url of your sideblog and i’ll use that one instead.)

more info: our tag will be ’itf net’, a place for anything from updates to angry rants about your least favorite character.  as soon as you’re accepted, feel free to update this tag as often as you’d like!

please keep in mind that only one person is running this blog, so you may have to wait a bit before you get accepted, and then possibly a little longer before your description and icon is officially added:P  i appreciate everyone’s patience, and here’s to expanding the beautiful fandom that is In the Flesh!
