I saw it after checking the Damien & Lucien [tag] which seems counter-intuitive because as far as I’ve been in fandom, ‘&’ was used for close friendship/familial/otherwise platonic relationships while the ‘/’ was like using ‘X’, it means character A and character B in a relationship so that was confusing. But also I’m just bitching because BACK IN MY DAY a Gothic father/son incest ship would have more than one goddamn fic, that shit wouldn’t be hidden, that would be prime shipping content right there.
Maybe the reason there’s so little content for that pairing is because most people realize that incest and pedophilia are wrong, and should never be glamorized?
For those who don’t know, Claude made a comic back in 2015 about the human personifications of incest and pedophilia. Pedophilia and Incest were portrayed as a father and daughter who were in a DD/LG relationship, and the comic was very explicit. Claude tried to justify this by encouraging people to donate to organizations like RAINN instead of paying for the comic.

K. M. Claude and roachpatrol are missing the point. When people complain about sexualization, they’re complaining about:
People, particularly marginalized people, being oversexualized and reduced to fetish objects.
Portraying harmful things such as rape, pedophilia, or incest as sexy.
I’d like to remind people that both Claude and Roach have made erotic fiction about minors being sexually abused. Claude has also created a lot of rape/incest-themed porn involving their adult characters.

I mean considering I’ve written about a grown woman molesting her teen brother and the deleterious effect it had on him and what damage it did (writings which you can buy for $5.99 or if you prefer physical books $10.99) I think the answer to that is pretty obvious.
But ah, you seem to be under the delusion that I get off on your personal trauma or that my art has anything to do with you. But that is simply a delusion which is a personal problem on your part.
Writing about something is not the same thing as personally experiencing it, nor does it make you an expert on the subject.
