Are you crying yet? Because I am.
Alright, I’m probably going to lose followers over this, but I’ve got to ask.
Why Hansencest and Becketcest?
I have a passion for human psychology, and I’m trying to figure out where the attraction is in incestuous ships – not judge – just genuinely curious to understand where this one comes from.
At first, I believed that it was basically a kink or some kind of fantasy.
I mean, some people are into stories depicting rape, snuff, necrophilia, non-consexual sexual relationships, etc. So I figured that this was pretty much in the same category.
i.e. something about (grown) child abuse and psychological parental violence in the context of pure fantasy is appealing to people.
And it’s fine. I can respect people having these fantasies and writing about them.
But it seems so popular in this fandom, that I’m trying to figure out “What am I missing?”
Honestly, in my first viewing of the movie, I barely noticed that they were father and son until that last goodbye scene where Herc calls Chuck his son /facepalms (I think I was still trying to tell Chuck and Raleigh apart while keeping an eye out for awesome Jaeger vs. Kaiju fights.)
For me, I ship Hansencest and Becketcest because I think the prospect of the PR universe allows that, that in this particular world, it would be okay if the world was ending, if they were co-pilots, if they had the kind of connection that a drift allows, and that a romantic/sexual relationship could develop without all the underlying abuse that is very much real in reality.
Certainly, there is that kink in there, the taboo, the immoral aspects to it that makes it appealing to some (to me, at times, depending on the day really). I write quite a bit of Hansencest but for me, I don’t always want to explore the darkwrongawfulbad aspect so of course I would write fluff pieces where that problem gets swept under the rug.
However you boil it down though, incest is incest is incest and those are issues that needs to be addressed, and that also makes quite the topic for another fic too.
tl; dr: the premise of the PR universe gives me the OK (that or I’m completely delusion and have a warped sense of what’s what).
