Hello, I am a DevianTARTlet (if you want my DA name known you can ask me). I've been reading this wiki for quite some time, and I like it. Browsing on DA I stumbled upon a webcomic called STARFIGHTER, popular enough to have its own fanclub. It's a 18+ Yaoi about two guys, Cain and Abel (duh…), a fighter and a navigator (what they are is never really explained) in space. But let's not kid ourselves, it's mostly about the BUTTSECKS.
First off: the art is quite pretty (although I think Cain and Abel's faces could have used a bit more characterization), the coloring fits the mood, there aren't walls of text and, apart from the central confusing battle scene, the panel flow is smooth and easily understandable.
The reason I'm signaling this is because it reads as a COMPLETE YAOI PARODY without actually being one.
We have our "uke" character, Abel (duh…), a skinny, naive, Bambi-eyed blonde guy sexually harrassed by Kamin…Cain, the "seme": a meaner, darker, manlier version of Abel, complete with a predatory, sociopathic personality. At first, Abel reacts quite beliveabily, considering he's dealing with a psycho.
BUT! When BUTTSECKS TIEM approaches, Starfighters jumps the shark without honor or dignity. After winning a dangerous space battle so arousing it prompted Psychoboy to fap, he decides the time has come for that anal rape he begrudgingly postponed. Oh my. And, what does our Abel do?
After not much resistence, he finally breaks it down: who cares if Cain is a predatory sociopath, with a flashback we are informed that, since Abel's anus has been SOOO LONELY, he wouldn't mind some hot Cain action.
An with this last scene, any pretense of characterization was destroyed.
The webcomic is still ongoing, and I'm still reclutant to criticize it, since the creator must have spent quite some time and effort on it: it's not some butchered sprite comic. But when you handle characterization so badly, all the pretty artwork in the world won't save your work. Beneath all the sugar coating here is a stereotyped Yaoi template, and no amount of detail or spaceships is going to change that.
Which is a pity, since I believe the author could do much better.
