Subject: Consider what Slash means in this context.
Posted on: 2021-02-18 22:58:17 UTC
When talking about Slash in a fanfic context it means an explicit Male x Male partnership (unless it's Femslash which is Female x Female of course). Although yes, it is the case more often that not that Slash 'fics are written about two characters of the same gender that do not canonically have a same sex relationship, it doesn't stop explicit 'fics about canonically same-sex couples from being counted as Slash, because that does fall within the definition of a Slash 'fic.
And of Course, Bad Slash doesn't really matter if it's canonical or not, Bad is Bad regardless.
