Or: Why Ronan is Gay and Yes, That Was in the Book, Quite Clearly and Distinctly
Because I keep looking through the tags and there is a lot of confusion, and a lot of attempts at interpretation, and that confusion still really does confound me. I actually wrote this a couple of days ago, and I hesitate still to post it. Because there’s meta, which I adore. And there’s discussion, which I adore even more.
And then there’s this, which feels a little too much like lecture.
Since it doesn’t seem to be getting better though, come. Gather round, Raven fandom, let’s break this down. It’s not going to be pretty and flowery and academic, and for that, I apologize. Those who know me know I tend to make theses out of blurbs, and I’m trying to avoid that here. In many ways, I almost encourage you not to read this at all. I would much rather you go back and reread the novel because as Stiefvater has said on her own blog, the answer to your question truly is right there.
