Incest is a popular topic in English erotic fiction; there are entire collections and websites devoted solely to this genre, with an entire genre of pornographic pulp fiction known as "incest novels". This is probably because, as with many other fetishes, the taboo nature of the act adds to the titillation. With the advent of the Internet, even more of this type of fiction is available.
Besides this, incest is sometimes mentioned or described in mainstream, non-erotic fiction. Connotations can be negative, positive, or neutral.
Sons of Anarchy is an American television drama series created by Kurt Sutter about the lives of a close-knit outlaw motorcycle club operating in Charming, a fictional town in California's Central Valley. The show centers on protagonist Jackson "Jax" Teller (Charlie Hunnam), the then–vice president of the club, who begins questioning the club and himself.
Sons of Anarchy premiered on September 3, 2008, on cable network FX. The third season of the series attracted an average of 4.9 million viewers per week, making it FX's highest rated series ever, surpassing FX's other hits The Shield, Nip/Tuck, and Rescue Me. The season 4 and 5 premieres ("Out" and "Sovereign", respectively), both directed by series executive producer and principal director Paris Barclay and written by series creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter (along with staff writers Brady Dahl and Roberto Patino), were the two highest-rated telecasts in FX's history.
An outlaw motorcycle club (sometimes known as a motorcycle gang or biker gang) is a motorcycle subculture which has its roots in the immediately post-World War II era of American society. It is generally centered around the use of cruiser motorcycles, particularly Harley-Davidsons and choppers, and a set of ideals which celebrate freedom, nonconformity to mainstream culture and loyalty to the biker group. Many of the outlaw clubs operate criminal enterprises to support their way of life.
In the United States, such motorcycle clubs are considered "outlaw" as they are not sanctioned by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and do not adhere to the AMA's rules. Instead the clubs have their own set of bylaws from which the values of the outlaw biker culture arise.
Filip "Chibs" Telford is a fictional character, on the FX television series Sons of Anarchy, played by Tommy Flanagan. He is the Vice President of the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club. Unlike most of the club members, who are American, Chibs is from the United Kingdom and is Scottish. He is nicknamed 'Chibs' because of his facial scars ("chib" is Scottish slang for a knife or other stabbing implement), which are real scars Flanagan received in a mugging. He is extremely loyal to Jax Teller, the club's President, seems to have a good relationship with Tig Trager, and appears to be an increasingly fatherlike figure to Juice Ortiz.
Telford is originally from Glasgow, Scotland, but grew up in Belfast, Northern Ireland. He served as a medic with the British Army for five months, before being court-martialed. He is married to Fiona Larkin but estranged and has a daughter named Kerrianne. However, when he was thrown out of the True IRA, the group's leader, Jimmy O'Phelan, took his family from him because of jealousy. Chibs was originally a part of SAMBEL until he transferred to SAMCRO in the United States. O'Phelan also scarred his face and told him never to return to Ireland. It is likely that he gained entry to the Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Charming chapter, easily due to the IRA's links to the club's Belfast chapter. He is also SAMCRO's connection with the True IRA, who sell guns to gangs within the United States. He is heard to speak Irish and Scottish Gaelic.
In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.
Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
