So, finally I have got round to answering azdaja_dafema's query about my thoughts on yaoi. First of all I will admit that I didn't actually know what yaoi was before being asked this question, and a quick look on wikipedia has left me puzzled. Mostly my thoughts are puzzlement. I in no way want to stand in the way of the homosexual pretty on either side, but I'm just not interested in the male homosexual pretty (apart from in a "yay, my universal literary theory is working" way). My interest in men is very limited, restricted to my boyfriend in fact, and I have a slightly egotistical problem with much erotica (I don't want to necessarily want to see two people involved, I would rather be involved myself and in fact develop slight jealousy issues, unless the two people involved are both so amazingly beautiful that really they belong together) means I probably won't be reading any yaoi soon. Also I have a problem with the apparent (bear in mind that I have read none of this genre and my research was minimal) preponderance of "loving rape" plots, which I doubt I need to explain. So anyway that was mostly about me and not about yaoi, because I know hardly anything about it, but at least it's done. Meme (the "ask me anything" one) is still open if anyone wants to ask anything else.

In other matters, I am trying to work out the plot for my next play, and around how autobiographical it should be. (This is on the grounds that I am going to have to write an autobiographical play at some point and I might as well get it done now.) Any suggestions?
