When Josh Raped Shelley – the scenes

DISCLAIMER The following is a work of fiction and bears no relation to existing people or events.

– Shelley and Josh on the beach surfing, taking pictures, everything chillax and cool and fun. We do not specify where they are, it could be any beach anywhere in the world where it’s sunny with a beach and waves. They both speak English with an accent but it’s a non-specific accent. We learn that Shelley is visiting Josh from “down under” (do not specify where) and that they met online. Jokes about vegans arguing all day on the social media, they respond to the threads making up snarky comments together. Two quick-witted sarcastic argumentative vegans in love with eachother picking each others brains while complementing each other. I have already shown what Shelley is like in another blog post. Josh is like this guy – in behaviour and manner of speech, not in looks because Josh looks like a mess, part raver, part g-thug, part goff, part dandy, part New Age, just a mess of styles and we can’t readily read him at first. Josh tries to be everything all at once and this mess is represented in the way he dresses. Josh wears a court jester’s hat. We learn he’s bald with fake hair extentions.

– Josh and Shelley at home. Shelley shows Josh her old social media videos about veganism which are crude and badly shot. Josh tells Shelley he can help her make better videos. Josh and Shelley at the Media Markt, buy a digital camera and split the price.

– Josh is an animator and he shows Shelley a black cat animation he has made. This signals the twist at the end of the film, and is also a reference to the ancient Japanese fairy tale, The Boy Who Drew Cats, only here Josh is the bat/rat — just like Alexander was the rat in 1984. Τhese predatory men all want to be rats and they know this of themselves which is why they subconsciously identify with rodents that sneak into places they shouldn’t.

– Some buddhist New Age talk about how Josh views Shelley as The Anointed One who will lead the masses towards their self-manifested evolution as vegans & hence towards higher consciousness. It is very important that these scenes do not become tacky or comical in any way. Josh has to be absolutely convinced of his New Age woowoo, and Shelley has to look absolutely enthralled (film in soft focus to make it look more romantic/intimate?). This is a charisma and confidence driven scene. It’s a scene about the power of men emotionally brainwashing women through love-bombing. The spell should be broken at the end, like a hypnotist snapping his fingers, when Josh makes a monkey joke, in reference to the 100th monkey theory  revealed later.

– Josh and Shelley shoot a Youtube film in the desert near a dead tree trunk. The deadness of the tree should symbolize the deadness of their relationship, the relationship is doomed to fail. Josh is behind the camera, and he instructs Shelley to look like an animal and to act lewed. “Stick out your tongue”. Shelley is reluctant but performs as instructed. Josh asks Shelley to touch the camera, “Get out your bubble Shelley, take it, touch it, pick it up.”. POV shot should look romantic with a predatory undercurrent. Nothing too overt, above all else ambiguous. The male viewer should identify with Josh’s sexual predation, the female viewer with Shelley’s vanity getting the better part of her. The POV has to be confusing because Shelley is touching the camera and is filming herself but Josh is instructing her, so whose gaze are we looking through here? Is Shelley filming herself, or is Josh filming Shelley using Shelley herself as a proxy to do so? Is Josh using Shelley’s own hands to pray on Shelley visually?

– Josh and Shelley at the vegan animal rights convention/festival. Shelley meets
her favourite vegan animal rights film director. This man is everything Josh isn’t: humble, philosophical, together, calm, soft spoken, humorous without being offensive, does not hide his age but acts his age. Josh feels like a third wheel and is revealed by his asinine/rude comments to be a New Age phoney next to the real thing. Josh tells Shelley he wants to be “at the other side of the table, because at this side I am just a fan.”. Everyone wants to interview Shelley at the festival about her new animal rights group. Josh feels ignored.

– A bunch of coloured women spot Shelley with Josh. Josh doesn’t see them because he’s relaying the 100th monkey theory to a bunch of animal rights activists listening just as enthralled as Shelley was earlier. Shelley sees the women in the distance, who are gesticulating and grimacing, upset and frustrated. The women get up and leave the convention room. Shelley follows them and stops one of them in the hall. She just looks at Shelley with sincere pity and says “watch yourself”, walks away with no further explanation just as Josh arrives. “You wanna know what Zeus said to Narcissus.”

– Josh and Shelley at the vegan restraurant. Shelley is eating strawberries and
raspberries. CU of her fingers moving the fruit to her lips. ASMR intermezzo meant to hypnotize the viewer and create a false sense of calm with the overlayed whispers of the coloured women that we previously saw at the convention/festival. They are whispering at Shelley to warn her about Josh but there are so many women’s voices whispering that Shelley cannot make out what they are saying or that these are warnings from the whisper network of women warning eachother about Josh. Shelley keeps eating strawberries as Josh’s voice mansplaining some point about veganism becomes louder and louder. At one point Shelley’s own fingers are replaced by male fingers shoving fruit into her mouth (the sight of male fingers near her mouth has to come as a surprise as the audience was habituated first to Shelley’s fingers). Josh is now feeding Shelley, control of a parter’s food intake is a typical psychopathic trait. Shelley smiles and accepts the offerings. Josh says “I lub uuu” with a childish voice. Infantilization and pedophilia.

– Josh and Shelley fight at the vegan restaurant after Josh makes a sexist comment about the waitress. Shelley tries to make Josh understand why the comment was sexist, Josh does she “I was only joking/trolling” routine.

– Tender scene of Josh and Shelley in bed that ends up violent. Shelley wakes up to find Josh near her face jacking off and shooting cum all over her cheeks and lips (simulated because my movie isn’t porn, fuck Larry Clark and all that art house art porn shit). Shelley freaks out, screams, punches Josh in the gut, and jumps out of bed. Pandemonium in the room, furniture toppled over, etc. Josh pulls Shelley away from the door, locks the door and starts shaking and crying himself, because Josh has to be at the center of it all, it’s about him being abused by Shelley’s response, not the fact that he’s raping Shelley by shooting in her face while she is sleeping and with no prior consent. Josh must look like the “My Abuse Story” video on Youtube (“I have to collect myself” just as he start crying, etc.) The cats observe the whole thing. Josh’s Latina pot-smoking roommate bangs on the door in response to the noise, Josh opens the door just as Shelley is wiping his cum off her face with a towel crying. They both conspire to calm down the roommate with some made up story about what happened. That they were trying out positions and fell over or some lame excuse like that.

– Josh and Shelley smoking pot with the Latina roommate after the rape and fight. More babble about animal rights and veganism only this time completely absurd and incoherent, babble about wanting to kill omnis, wanting to warehouse them in communist style re/education camps, just full on Freely during this scene. Josh reveals his Mormon background, the religious brainwashing of his youth and reveals wanting to be a vegan cult-leader with multiple slaves/wives. Everything in this scene must be like junkie babble with lots of oblivious giggling and laughing. Audience is introduced to the New Age concept of the Indigo Child. Josh sees himself as an Indigo destined to rule the world. We now understand that he’s not just an eccentric but truly a madman with a Jesus complex… or is he just stoned?

… to be continued.
