Y’know, I used to be a part of the whole slash-fic/fanfiction scene when I was in junior high/high school, and if you had asked me about it then instead of now, my opinion would be entirely different… and probably more positive. I was the biggest fan of slash pairings, and I would always look up fan-fictions and fanart of the (non-canon) couples I followed (stuff like Harry x Malfoy and what not).
In retrospect though, I can’t understand the fandom. I feel like I was entirely different person back then — I look at old files I collected as a high school frosh and wonder what I thought was attractive or appealing about it. To be honest, it’s actually kind of disgusting to me.
Well, at least slash.
I mean, not to say I have anything against homosexuality, I just don’t find it… “hot,” if you will. At least not anymore.
I don’t even understand how I did.
Has anyone else gone in and out of the whole “slash” fandom? Is anyone still into it? I just… kinda wanna know what I saw in it that was attractive so long ago that I don’t see now. Maybe it was just a phase. I don’t know.
