Why is it that 90% of the Germany/Italy doujinshi out there seem to be dubcon-ish at best? I get that Italy tends to get cast as the weepy uke type, but surely that doesn't mean that he literally has to cry during sex all the time... right? Because personally, if someone was crying and seeming distraught for no apparent reason during sex, I might assume that it was because, you know, they didn't want to have sex.
...But that's just me.
Okay, YKINMKATOK, but it creeps me out a little that most of the time, people seem to scan in doujinshi and not even find it necessary to warn that there's dubcon in it. Extra creepiness points when I get the impression that dubcon and fluff are permanently merged in the mind of fandom when it comes to this pairing, or something.
Would it be too much for me to ask to be able to download a fluffy doujin for this pairing and actually have it be sweet and fluffy instead of making me feel sort of gross inside? I'd sort of like to not have to end up thinking, 'Wait, what happened there? Did Germany just rape Italy?' every time.
Still some love,
Granted, all of this could be a subtle reference to the tone of German foreign policy in general during the main time period this fandom covers. In which case, A++ work. ...But given that it isn't really, no A++ for you.
