Seeing vs Reading

Post by Damselbinder »

A question

Are there any sorts of peril scenes that you like in writing, but not in video, or vice versa? Say, perhaps you like seeing superladies being chloroformed, but you find written versions too similar, or sutin.

I think most people would experience the latter. Most people would most likely want to see what they read. I create an image of a story in my mind when I read it. Bushwackerbob once told me that he likes my books' covers because he has a visual representation of the superheroine. He could easily create an image of her in his mind.

I want a video with the same concept from Don SHIP's Ms Patriot: Wicked Witch Switch. A witch becomes a doppelganger of Ms Patriot. His concept presents unique peril. You would need two actresses with similar looks.

Steven Bell's chapter about Solar Flare (pretending to be Miss Marvelous) battling the mob at a pool party would be awesome in a film with the exception of death. I certainly don't want to see a character's death. Anyways, villains fucking and violating a heroine at a pool party would be a great idea.

I like the intimacy associated in writing. It's the best way to 'get in their head' without coming off gimmicky. Lots of SHiP videos now do the voice over thing to try and sell the heroines peril... but it only works so well because that isn't the strength of a pictographic formula... the STRENGTH of film is showing us something in a way that makes us understand... preferably with as little nudging as necessary.

In writting you can't do that, so painting a picture in the mind of the reader becomes an act of putting us in the headspace of the focal characters... for this reason, as a woman whom tends to empathize on the heroines end, being in the headspace of the heroine during her perils is a spectacular turn on that only really is 'grazed' upon in video. "I feel so helpless!" READS much better as part of the scene than it comes off spoken by a mildly bored woman in an audio booth.

I agree, because you can let your imagination go further. In video or audio there is a limit to how you can intepert.

There may be a visual aspect of the performer( she or her has too many tats or annoying voice or the fight scene was lame or the voice is annoying) that you may not like

For my own answer to the question, I think types of bondage are where my appreciation diverges (beyond stuff I'm never into in either medium). Visually, I don't like the looks of frogties, any of the more contortionist-ish bondage, or even simple hogties all that much, compared to more "damsel-in-distress"ish, simpler-looking ways of being tied up. But in writing, since it's so much about the texture, the emotion, and the feeling of the lady involved, I'm much more, uh, tolerant I guess.

I don't HATE it? That's an awful strong emotion too ascribe from what I said? I just was expressing that the voice over thing, while its trying to adopt an element of superheroine peril that's oft beloved in writing, isn't an element that traditionally plays to the strengths of a visual medium. It isn't JUST that the actress often sounds bored in the voice over stuff, the original Dune film is a great example of this since all its voice over stuff in that film is about on par 'performance'-wise with its spoken dialogue... and my general feeling about that has always been that it's one of the great weaknesses of the film that they have to keep expositing to us through unspoken dialogue. It was trying to take one of the strengths of the written format and adapt it to a medium that has different strengths.

I think he was responding to Dazzle, who listed "if the voice is annoying" as a turn-off twice in the same sentence.

My English is poor. I typed something and a pun came out that I didn't mean to look up.
