I thought this was just about not being blood siblings, not a love/incest trope. D:

"In The Lion King 2, isn't it so convenient that Kovu isn't really Scar's son, making it perfectly okay for him to get it on with his cousin?"

Anviliciously hammered in within the first twenty seconds of Kovu's appearance. And Kovu would be Simba's cousin, Kira's second cousin or once-removed cousin or something, so it's not even that squicky from that perspective.

Although if Nala's Scar's kid, that means he's dating his niece... Mufasa's, half-brother/half-sister romance. Or Nala's mom just showed up in the territory already pregnant one day. :p

Big example missing under Comics. The original back-story given for the Post-Crisis Lex Luthor involved him falling for his step Sister Lena.

I'm normally a huge fan of trope images, but this is the perfect example of a bad one. Doesn't illustrate the trope at all, other than his quote.

Do in-laws belong in this trope?

Does it bug anyone but me that saying not being blood related means its perfectly acceptable for two siblings to screw? (In the sense that it shouldn't matter if they're related, its their lives their choice)

Or that Not Blood Siblings seems to be overly used as some kind of cop out when writers want to get all that "Forbidden Romance" stuff but are too pussy for the squick associated with Incest?

The second part does bug me. As for the first I think "it's their lives, it's their choice" should apply even if they are blood related however further discussion of that belongs on the forums I think.
