bowsette, queer representation 

bowsette is a horny thing to some folks but i think more broadly it reflects a hunger for queer representation, and the ways in which fan works can agitate corpers to take action.

fan art demonstrates that creative franchises do not belong to their authors, but to the collective culture that draws meaning from it. any sufficiently mature franchise faces this. for instance, star trek is a franchise and a genre and a mythology above and beyond whatever corper currently owns the rights.
