I don’t know about you, but slash fiction is something I’ve been blissfully ignorant of. I’m usually pretty open minded but slash fiction involving underage characters seems, well, pretty weird to me.
I mean, I know a person or two who played with this genre—explained at Wikipedia— particularly with X-Files
But I admit I was a little bit surprised that when I typed “Harry Potter blog” into Google, it led me to slash fiction sites where people imagined sexual situations with Harry Potter characters.
Am I a prude to find this a bit, well, odd?
Do you read and like such things? If so, what’s the appeal?
I came across the slash fiction while preparing for a book discussion at my blog. Here are some more harmless but fun Potter-related links:
- Harry Potter thoughts in another language.
- The Harry Potter personality quiz, courtesy of this blog.
- An excellent Harry Potter quiz (with some spoilers)
- A complicated house sorting quiz.
And here are some good ones I previously shared:
- You can go find out what your Harry Potter alter ego is.
- Just how popular is Harry Potter at Guantanamo Bay? The answer.
- Here is an excellent review I may use as a jumping off point for the discussion.
- Here are some spoiler thoughts for those who finished the book.
- And here are other related links.
