"Klaus is uke because.." (complete with picture references)
"Dorian is uke because.." (complete with picture references)
Now, how about my take on the matter. As you all know, I do not like pairings that I do not percieve as to be inequal. I think that Klaus and Dorian both have their times of submission just as they have their times of dominance. however... I see that as far as personalities go, Klaus has the bigger uke going on. Dorian is always the sexual predator where Klaus is concerned whereas Klaus has the biggest self rightous martyr complex going on, on the face of the planet. No matter how much I see Klaus topping, yes.. he's always going to say he doesn't want it and remain a good german choir boy at heart.
Just like I see Dorian being like, "Oooh Major, you can cover me with that strong sexy body any time".
Just like any pairing, it's not clear cut. Not to mention 70s shounen-ai doesn't have alot of the problems that the genre has nowadays. Perhaps it was because women either wanted their gay men to both look like girls (as a case of "Song of Wind and Trees") or both to look like MEN (from Eroica with Love). It's something interesting to think about, certainly.
Now with that being said, now I'm back to oogling Klaus and Dorian oogling each other's arses in chapter 6 (and yes even Klaus was, despite all protestations that he's a good german boy)
