Artist's comment:
This is a stupid story, but that's what I feel like posting. Also an old one, which I'm not going through the trouble of re-writing.

Back in olden times there was a lot of discussion of who topped and bottomed and etc, so I decided to write it into one of the Kostas stories, because while the world is not one where gendered and heteronormative assumptions are predominant (or, at least, the same), there's DEFINITELY still a conversation relevant to that world about dominance and submission, and roles of power generally. And while that doesn't necessarily equate to sexual position or penetrative acts, in the world of the Academy, with its extreme devotion to ranks and hierarchy, it's certainly relevant to who has who in the pin, or at the wrong of the sword, so to speak.

Anywho, and it's dumb and it makes me laugh, so here it is.

I think I just see it less. Discussion of 'tops' and 'bottoms' then was really attached to the seme-uke thing (don't know if I'm spelling that right... it' been a while since I've thought about it), which kind of ties into the widespread fetishizing of gay men in online fiction, at the time. Or, at least, since the fetishization conversation has died down, and the yaoi tropes stuff died down, I haven't seen a lot of 'top or bottom' essentializing.

I did read Moab is My Washpot based on your recommendation, and it was quite good! That was a while ago, though, so I don't recall that part :sweatdrop: My memory is a bit unreliable these days.

But yeah. I think it would be that sort of thing. And it is literally a trope of the Kostas world that Academy romances are full of intrigue and gamesmanship and drama, so even if it's not exactly canon, it's pretty much canon.
