in The Originals Klaus and Rebekah have such a chemistry and subtext is so heavy that it's basically, a text. A thousand years of intense love-hate relationship and counting. Klaus killed almost all of his sister's suitors, he's extremely territorial and possessive of her, always acts like a jealous lover. They often get mistaken for lovers, and actually consider themselves a pair. There's been many confessions of love, and they engage in sexually charged sadistic activities together, such as torture and feeding on humans, and it's been stated on the show that such activities are erotic for vampires. So they're basically canon.

GTA San Andreas also has one. Carl's sister, Kendl, is dating Cesar, a guy from a rival street gang. When Kendl hugs Cesar, Carl pushes him away, at which Cesar replies "Chill out, holmes, you're acting like she's your woman, eh!"

Is there a particular reason why Firefly's Tam siblings are nowhere to be found? Because it seems like a pretty clear case, seeing as they're REALLY close, River watched him have sex with Kaylee and she once joked that they should get married, as well as pretended to be pregnant with his baby, in a deleted scene. I ask this because TV Tropes is about 20% Joss Whedon fansite (which is a good proportion IMO), so I can't see how this fairly obvious example wasn't mentioned unless this happened due to deletions and controversy.

The main thing here is the writers don't see it as such. Only real support for this is that pregnancy/marriage -deleted scene, but Simon is is thoroughly disgusted at the thought and was meant to underline that River is a complete Cloud Cuckoo Lander when she's not lucid. So yes they are extremely close, but the incestious subtext never truly materializes as mutual.

Wasn't there an subtext of incest in "Lemon Incest"...or maybe that was just outright? (For the record, it's a song by Sergei Gainsbourg and his daughter...You Be The Judge.

  • Ben and Gwen from Ben 10 have infamous amounts of subtext applied to them in canon, despite their being cousins.
    • In the original pitch, Gwen was an unrelated classmate of Ben's. The romantic subtext apparently just never got removed after she was retooled into being his cousin instead.
    • Word of God states the reason they were giving love interests in the new series was to dismiss all the Cousin Couple fandom.

"The writers teasing with incestuous subtext in a story. " the 'writers' not the fans seeing incestous subtext
