I’ve had this thought recently and I need to let it out. I always keep saying that we just can’t expect much positive TV representation of consanguinamory in 2017, that it’s way too soon, but that this is going to change in the future because we’re making slow but real progress.
And yet… Continue reading “A reflexion”
I have an idea for a game story about consanguinamory which we could work on using Twine.

Okay so I just spent like 30 minutes making this because I couldn’t stop thinking about last night’s Bates Motel heartbreaking episode. No actual spoilers for the show, but the context is.
I just watched last night’s Bates Motel episode.
HUGE SPOILERS AHEAD

I have only watched the first season of GoT, but I found this beautiful video (not edited by me) and thought it was worth sharing.
Posting this info here for reference.
Some of the most popular non-canon consanguineous ships on TV seem to be:
- Sam/Dean – Supernatural
- Stefan/Damon – The Vampire Diaries
- Sherlock/Mycroft – BBC Sherlock
- Harry Potter (several different ships)
And the most popular canon ship is obviously Jaime/Cersei from Game of Thrones.
Some TV shows with at least “not-that-bad” portrayals of consanguinamory are:
- Game of Thrones
- The Borgias
- Another Period
- Flesh and Bone
- Bates Motel
- Hemlock Grove
- Boardwalk Empire
- The White Queen
Finally, there’s this Wiki page where many incestuous relationships in the media are covered.
(No sexual content included; G).
It’s amazing how similar these two brothers were/are to me and my brother.
It’s the most positive portrayal that I’ve seen of consanguinamory, happy ending included, and also the one I can personally relate to the most; two brothers who fall in love with each other and are accepted by their family and society. Someday this will stop being only fiction. Someday this will happen in real life, and people will look back and think how wrong they were to deny love.
I’d like to recommend three shows that have incestuous themes and relationships:
Águila Roja (Red Eagle): Brother/Sister and Aunt/Nephew.
[Ending Spoilers] Irene kills herself soon after she finds out that she’s been sleeping with her blood brother, Hernan. Her nephew, Hernan’s son Nuño, who she was in love and had an affair with, never finds out about their blood relationship. Hernan and Nuño survive.
Nissaga de poder (Lineage of power): Brother/Sister.
[Ending Spoilers] It ends in suicide as well, but at least both characters, Eulalia and Mateu, die together and in love. They also had a son together, Eduard. It’s the relatively most positive portrayal of consanguinamory out of these.
Lo que escondian sus ojos (What her eyes were hiding): Half-Brother/Sister. Based on a true story, real-life incest.
[Ending Spoilers] Yet another suicide after the reveal of their blood relationship. This time only attempted however, because the brother, Rolo, talks his sister Carmen down from jumping off a cliff. Carmen locks herself into a convent for the following years. This happened in real life too.
Very mild spoilers for Taboo FX/BBC, up to Season 1 episode 4.
