games where you get to pick how your character responds to something by choosing one of a few simplified responses but then your character says the complete opposite of what you thought you were going for

whoa, i never thought about it that way but that really hits it. also can someone remind me when the gay sex happened because i only remember het sex happening on page?
That I can’t help you with. I quit around page 108 or something. I’m just glad there are people that understand what I’m trying to say cause my friend seems to think I didn’t give it a chance after the vagina horror bit. It’s more the atmosphere that’s a downer for me Dx

that last pagraph = how I feel this way about a lot of gaiman’s writing in general
I got to thinking about it earlier and I think I’ve only read two of his novels to completion- Stardust and Neverwhere. Neverwhere was fun because of Door, and Stardust was based on the same poem as the curse in Howl’s moving castle so…
I’m not sure how I feel about him in the broader sense.

aside from the surprise gay sex it wasnt really that good tbh
Like when I was young I got my hands on a few books from a yard sale that were actiony things and they were like FOR MEN kind of books. Lots of talk about piss and vomit and sex and women. Jus these kind of. ‘Good old boy’ kind of thing in which realism included a lot of bodily functions and men proving themselves (usually with sexy/beautiful or dead women around)
And American gods reads that way to me. Like bar fights and dead bodies and man getting eaten by a vagina near the beginning. It’s just got that same atmosphere to me as those other books and it’s an atmosphere I don’t particularly like??
Sometimes I feel like people judge me because I couldn’t get into American Gods.
