Re: Meta on "Lost in the life" dub!con and non!con and canon!Marcone

I also figured in that fic he's manipulating Harry at least somewhat on purpose. Which seems perfectly consistent with what we've seen of his behavior in canon, our strange little fanon version of him aside.

Not that I think our fanon version is unrealistic, either! That is to say, he does cruel and ruthless things all the time- when it's necessary to keep his little empire together. I don't think that he would have an ethical objection to rape. But that doesn't mean he doesn't have a personal objection to it. That is to say, if John Marcone is vigilant against ever coercing anyone into sex, or to coercing certain people into sex, it's not because he believes it's wrong, but because that's not the sort of sex he wants to have.

And, you know, for an unscrupulous, ruthless bastard who spends his whole life manipulating people and backing them into corners, I don't think it's unrealistic to think that he'd want this one area of his life to be not about doing that.

But I don't think it's unrealistic for him to actively get off on coercion, either.
