Irrelevant Interruption FTW  
Umm... I read M. Butterfly by David Henry Hwang this morning and on the train. Mind fucking BLOWN, guys. It's loosely based on this real French diplomat who was in China and had a major affair with a Chinese opera singer, who happened to be a Communist spy extorting him for information.

And a guy, which the French dude managed not to be aware of for about twenty years.

It's insanely good, and there's a lot about fantasy/reality, and love, and sex, and sexism, and racism, and colonialism.

I really want to see it performed one of these days. Maybe I'll check out the film.

I also really want to accuse everyone who writes L/Light of being an imperialist pig.

Including ME. >D

In other news, I found a new way to waste time last night.

...guilty as charged.

So here's mine:

And here's eltea's, which makes me lol every time I think about it:

...and yes. XD

Oh, eee hee hee. XD So they talked a lot in the play about how the West casts itself as the aggressor and emasculates Asian men and assumes that The East, as it were, will be happy to submit when faced with a worthy (or even not particularly worthy) dominant Western party, and that the Western sexual fantasy about deferent "Oriental" woman is the same deal. SOOOO... L/Light. XD

Then again, L is almost a world character to me, rather than a Western character, but... everything comes back to fanfiction in my head, so that was my immediate thought.


(P.S. YAY! ^^)

Heee, I... am just permanently slashily-minded. 8D

Yeah, I usually go British for him. ^^ And their relationship doesn't even speak of that to me, really, but it was, uh, the first connection my brain made when I put the play down. XD

Education schmeducation; it's all about looking at fic from new angles! XD
