Mediocre-to-okay media things that have surprised me recently:

5ive Girls - Weird religious horror movie with lesbian schoolgirls = cheesy fun, right? But even though the main villain is very explicitly a Christian demon (Legion, aka the one Jesus banished), one of the girls isn't Christian and makes a protection circle by calling on her Goddess and it totally works. Surprising!

The Listener - Comparisons of telepathy to rape even though the telepath is the hero! And there's even a whole argument about how even though he, Toby, is a good person, that doesn't mean her argument is invalid. Also there is a thing about Toby's third foster home dad who never touched him, just thought about it every night, and how it was before Toby learned to block people out and "it was just a matter of time" and also Toby getting taken over by someone else's nightmare when he gets flashes of a girl's rape.

Death Angel - Romance novel where the hero is a sociopath (assassin, very little emotion, no personal connections other than business, no attachments to possessions) who's kind of interested in the heroine, but still honestly debating whether or not to just kill her (girl he kind of admires/sticking it to a guy who irritates him vs. 2 million dollars). There's some change when he watches her die in an accident he caused, but the big change in his thinking really only comes after he sees her alive again and perfectly okay and it seems to be equally composed of "she's a miracle" and "holy shit there's life after death what does this mean for me?". And he ends the book still absolutely willing to not just kill to protect her, but willing to commit cold-blooded, pre-emptive murder to protect her.

It's slow and sweet, and might be called loving if they weren't both too bitter about other people. It's comfort, and Ianto realises that out of all the people in the world, this woman whose shoulder blades he is following with his mouth, who breathes softly into the flesh of his arm as his fingers move inside her, is the only one he trusts. It could be because neither one of them has a reason to betray the other. Or because even after everything that's happened, everything they've done, they still want to like each other, and it occurs to Ianto that he doesn't feel that about anyone else.

There were other passages, highlighted more tentatively, as if Paris weren't quite sure of them, or as if she were afraid that someone else might see how sure she was. "You are the grace of my life," Rory read, and there was something startling about that, too. Rory traced the light pencil line with her finger and tried to imagine Paris reading those words, reading them and wanting to mark them, to remember them.

"
Tell me what books you read, what music you hear, what company you meet, what thoughts you think. Tell me, my beloved, so that I may read those books, and hear that music, meet those folk, and think those thoughts. Tell me, so that I may know you better by knowing what you know, that I may love you better by loving what you love." Rory shut the book and left it abandoned in the carrel.
