Let me say that again.


This blog will be about (predominately) slash fiction, and all the various permutations thereof. Why Slash?

Why not?

I’m not really sure there is any one reason why I’m a Slash Fan, or why (as some would say) I am obsessed with it. It’s one of the things I will be discussing in the blog. But let’s just say, that the short answer is that it’s (to me) infinitely more interesting than traditional romance. And, as much as I hate to admit, it is Romance.

I am involved in more than one fandom, and I will be discussing more than one fandom. There are some I’m heavily involved in, and will be discussing most, and others that I’m tangential to, or have left behind that I wont focus on as much. I am always willing to try NEW fandoms, so if you have something I might be interested in, let me know.

I decided that I should write about fandom, when every other story I told stated with the phrase “So, I was reading this story…”

I am a long time fanfiction reader. I started when the place to be was fanfiction.net, I lost stories to the Great Purge, I have a livejournal to lurk on particular authors and communities, and I knew I hit saturation point when I wrote a Graduate-Level final paper on fanfiction and literacy in teens. So, I decided to write this blog.

I am a Writer. I am a twenty-something. I am a Lesbian. I teach writing in Philadelphia. I am A Fan.
