I've always known that the classic 1941 movie The Maltese Falcon was actually the third film adaptation of the novel of the same name by Dashiell Hammett. Recently I got a DVD of the film out of the library, and as special features it included the previous two movies. I decided to watch them, and they inspired thoughts (spoilers! also assuming you are familiar with the story!):

Seeing Red, unfortunately, ends up taking the opposite tack: A realistic scene of attempted rape is resolved by the fantastic device of a soul. This entry was originally posted at https://itsnotmymind.dreamwidth.org/142880.html. Please comment either here or there, whichever works best for you.
But for the first time, it hit me: Mai knows this, too. She was there for there for The Beach. Mai's not a character whose head I spend a lot of time in, so I don't know quite why she chose to deliver this line the way she did. But she was not innocent of how it sounded to Azula.
In Buffy vs. Dracula, Joyce tells Willow and Tara, "Oh, when you girls are older you'll understand. It's hard to date. Sometimes you just ... feel like giving up on men altogether." Willow and Tara, per the transcript, "sneak little looks at each other and try not to grin."
So…Joyce doesn't know?
But in the very next episode, The Real Me, Dawn write this in her diary: "[Willow and Tara] do spells and stuff, which is so much cooler than slaying. I told Mom one time I wished they'd teach me some of the things they do together. A-and then she got really quiet and made me go upstairs. Huh. I guess her generation isn't cool with witchcraft." The implication is Joyce is well aware that Willow and Tara are a couple, and doesn't like the idea of her own daughter being a lesbian.
But is Dawn aware? She doesn't seem to have considered Willow and Tara's lesbianess as something that her mother her mother wouldn't want her to emulate. Did she not know, or did she just not realize her mother might have such a problem with it?
And if she didn't know - when did she find out? This entry was originally posted at https://itsnotmymind.dreamwidth.org/142057.html. Please comment either here or there, whichever works best for you.
