I suppose it would be very strange for an actor to read a slash story without forming some kind of mental picture with distaste at times.

Interesting thought though, especially with same sex relationships - some of them must be quite horrified by some of the stories they've read - if they've read them.
I think they must be a little mentally deficient if they do get horrified!

Slash. Personally, I'm against it, because it doesn't represent the characters as shown.

From a violence aspect, fanfic should be more violent than the programme as shown - living under a dictatorship IS brutal, it IS violent, but the programme went out at a certain time that said extreme violence is a bad thing so it had to be toned down. So the stuff I'm slowly putting together is violent and sometimes graphic at times.

For the same sex stuff, it just leaves me cold. I'm not against it, I just don't care. As long as I don't have to read it, no problem. Others enjoy it, so who am I to deny them that pleasure.

Who does AMS think he is? Start banning fan fiction, next mind wiping people and turning them into mutoids.

I don't think the cast really like the slash stories, but know it's part of the fandom. So the don't endorse them, but won't stop them. Thing is some people forget that the characters are that, just characters, not the actor playing it!!!! ( i have met a few fans like this!!!!!)

I totally agree with that, however I find it rather comical I must admit!

What I find a little disturbing about the same sex relationships is that the people that write these stories have such a facination with it, whether it be man on man or woman on woman. I really think they should get out more!!!

One of my friends has this great theory about slash - its about the fact that the strongest characters are men, therefore women decide that they want to be those characters - play out that part - but that then means that the tension that exists with the other male characters - especially the alpha male relationship has added to it the sexual tension of the the woman who is imagining she's the man...this is beginning to sound very freudian...anyways - it made sense to me at the time that it was being explained...

There was an article about slash fiction (from whatever series) in one of the magazines a while back, which commented that most of the writers of the male-male fiction tended to be women. Odd that.

I used to think it was a little odd - people are only just starting to study it as a genre - I think I find it fascinating because it is such an in-your-face way that people express their interpretations of characters. There's been an increase in interest in fan fiction in general in the mainstream media, at least here in Australia - I think the underground is coming into the mainstream - though I don't know why - maybe all that high-profile stuff with JK Rowling has done it.
