I agree with dropping the nuke on this one, and I can say that from experience. In the distant past, I wrote
a fanfic with the idea of showing the harm of sexual abuse - this is definitely not
an Unreliable Narrator Mind Screw
with a Reader Punch
waiting, and I can say that because I know that "vibe" so to speak, how to construct a scene that is creepy and vile in and of itself but that is setting up for The Reveal
of The Awful Truth
... this is not that.
This is being played for straight-out titillation, as something sexy. Nothing
in the construction of it hints at it being played for being seriously fucked up
or a setup for a What the Hell, Hero?
or You Bastard
(ninja'd) Of course, the writer could be trying for it and just be too incompetent to convey it properly, but the result is the same - this crap DOES NOT have the atmosphere of something genuinely deconstructing the concept or setting up a Player Punch
/ You Bastard Mind Screw
. It's just... crap. And pedo crap at that.
