FIC CHALLENGE  
I don't know why I didn't think of this before.

So, the majority of slashers are girls writing about boys, yes? We all agree on this.

Thanks to ali_wildgoose's hacking into a particular gay boy's LJ and stating he was writing femmeslash, I decided that it was time to issue a challenge.

Some of you gay boys have bitched about us girls crowding your territory. Here's your chance to turn the tables. That's right - you too can write what you don't know! Find out how hard it is firsthand!

THE RULES

* Gay boys only. Sorry, but girls in general, regardless of being bi, lesbian, or het, have all written boy on boy slash. Not exactly anything challenging there.
* Pairing is irrelevant. It simply has to be either het or femmeslash.
* It has to be explicit, either R or NC17. Anyone could write a little lemon fic where all they do is kiss. Come on, you can do better.
* Fics are due on October 1st.

Any other questions? You know where to find me. ;)

Can I write more Weasleycest instead? :)

Umm...see, the problem with this whole thing is that femmeslash does absolutely nothing for me sexually. Nothing. Much as women in general do nothing for me. I don't know why, but I have absolutely no inclination to write HP femmeslash.

Perhaps it's something to do with the lack of strong females in the series in general? Does Lark/Rosethorn from Tamora Pierce's Circle Of Magic series count towards this? Because I could try some of that.

How about girls with strap ons?

Seriously though, I see your point. But I do like this fic challenge!!!

Oh, how I laugh.

Of COURSE it doesn't do anything for you sexually! (I mean, if it did, we'd have talk about giving up the turkey baster and all) But are you saying that as a writer, unless it is something that turns you on, you can't write about it?

While I can't entirely disagree with you, it still can be done, and has been done, by women already. The question is - are you man enough to take the challenge? And I've never heard of the other author you mentioned.

And even though I'm giving you a hard time, you know you don't have to do this. It would just be interesting to see what you lot would come up with

This is *such* a great idea.

Might it be expanded to allow straight boys to write femmeslash? since it seems *none* of them do? As in, *actual* lesbian encounters, not staged-girl-on-girl-for-the-benefit-of-watching-straight-boy crap.
Vicki: Well....hermorrine on September 16th, 2002 11:12 pm (UTC)
I don't see why not. But are there any straight boys in this fandom??

Huh, I wonder if anyone's sent him to hell yet.

erm, how interesting...
*evil laughter* HET or FEMSLASH? how wonderful... *is DEFINITELY entering*

You don't know me. I found a link to this on my friend's page, and I went to someone else's friend's page and found a link to you through a comment on SOMEONE ELSES journal and decided I'd reply! I fit all the requirements, I think...

I'll start on one right now, :)

1) I so won't meet that deadline
2) I will so blame all results purely on you
3) I will so ask you questions. I will so not start to read the nifty lesbian section for this.
4) I will so abuse the word 'so' from here on
