Whew, I finally got an account!
Interesting topic Cat, I've also noticed these disability fics and most of them seem to be frame the character as a victim or an avenger. And I think both are problematic in their portrayal of disability as objects of charity and pity, or justifications of retribution/reason for retribution. I think that even if these sentiments are "merely" fantasies, they do provide snapshots of a type of mindset that deems them as "possibilities," and it makes me wonder about the effects of our research as disability scholars in areas outside of the academy or legalities.
I'd like to see what your research can turn up about that Cat, keep updating pls!
