Beading Serenity, Day 5

The Dark Emerald Bead-O-Meter

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
2,187 / 8,534

Today's routine was: set sprinkler, do a row of beadwork, stagger out into the nearly unbearable heat and move sprinkler, drink water, do another row of beadwork, and so on.

And behold! My parched garden is slightly happier, my water meter spins upward, and Beading Serenity is one quarter finished.

Oh! So damn cute it hurts! Someone needs to write this fic now.

And I love it when comments give you insight into your personal kinks. I've always known I had a kink for tall men. My dad and brother are both over 6 feet so I am used to men that make me feel small, well, smaller...short men make me uncomfortable since I feel huge next to them. That's a huge part of why I love Jayne/Adam so much and took a while to get into Simon/Sean.

I was already semi-aware that translated into a petite/large kink when it came to my het pairings, but never thought of it in slash terms before. But it was the Simon/Jayne pairing that got me liking Simon and slash in the first place and there's a definite petite/large kink factor at work there. Huh.

Very interesting! *eyes neroli66 speculatively*

For me, the big size difference is kind of an anti-kink. I always have a hard time with the sheer logistics such a pairing.

But I'm right with you on Jayne/Adam. Being 5'10" myself, I've always felt more comfortable around men who, at a minimum, couldn't actually hide behind me, you know? I dated a pretty, Simon-sized guy for a while, and the whole "prettier than me and smaller too" thing got old in a hurry.

Which would be why you prefer the Mal/Simon pairing, more of an equality in height. ;-)

Which kinda brings up something else, is the fact that he's the shorter in whatever pairing one prefers a factor in a lot of us slash readers/writers tending to relate more to Simon? Or why he's generally portrayed as the 'female' half of the pairing?

I know that's a broad generalization there but it just seemed a whole lot of us related to the Simon role in slash more when this topic came up in the hoyay thread.

Well, speaking just for myself, I relate more to Simon because he's the intellectual city kid, out of his element on the wild-west frontier. But yeah, I think the fact that Simon is portrayed by a relatively small--and unusually pretty--man definitely contributes to his slashability.
Aug. 15th, 2005 08:50 pm (UTC)
Oh yeah, the pretty helps.

I, however, have little in common with Simon. In fact, only thing that comes to mind is a certain anal-ness about some things. Only in my case it really is only some things where as Simon it's pretty much everything. *g*

So for me relating to him probably has more to do with the fact that I prefer being the one being dwarfed.

Another random kink admission, for all the I prefer being the physically smaller partner, I have definite Dom tendencies. Which might explain why my one slash story came out Dominate!Simon...LOL

Well, we've seen Dominant Simon more than once (Ariel, with the incompetent surgeon; Trash with paralyzed Jayne; StP over Kaylee's near-dead body...). Simon In Charge is very hot.

This is true, there is canon evidence that Simon has an inner Dom. *nods*

I'm 6'6" and just about that wide. Somehow I usually end up with fairly petite women, but they have, TO A WOMAN, all told me that they liked to ride horses when they were young. I kid you not!

Everybody has a niche, I guess . . .
Aug. 18th, 2005 04:29 am (UTC)
I believe it.

Can't say I rode horses much when I was young, but then again I'm not really petite either...LOL
