It’s a slippery slope of seek and destroy as ideas flood in and you’re trying to make a valid reason for this character to be in this pose. And that’s the thing, POSING is so terribly obvious, so contrived. I personally don’t like it. I’d rather have the character doing something a reason for being–and yet, here we are.
