It looks like I wrote some kind of terrible exegesis of slash fiction. It's down in the comments. Possibly amberite might be interested in what prompted all this, although perhaps this individual might find it too juvenile or "ignorant of the history of slash fiction" (as someone has, bizarrely, claimed). I just don't know anymore; who can say.

Do you know what I also did?

I just did a google image search for "dog in sunglasses." Then, I took this image and made it my desktop background, stretched out all the way, so that it doesn't look friendly anymore, so that it looks neutral and horrible.

Then, I made my screensaver be magenta "system" font quickly scrolling across a blue background, just saying "RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF RUFF."

I now have the most unpleasant Windows desktop configuration, of anyone.

I, too, am ignorant of the history of slash fiction. Except that I remember that it used to be called lemon fiction, like 10 years ago.

Nope. Slash and lemon are two completely different things.

Oh? Elaborate. From what I remember, erotic fanfiction previous to around 2000 were called lemons, and after that they were called slash. I didn't really read enough of either to notice much of a difference.

I can't believe it, Wikipedia has the history of slash fiction:

They have a history of all types of fanfic.

According to the article, slash fiction isn't exclusively fanfiction.

Would a story about Queen Victoria keeping a brood of hemophiliac offspring chained in a secret chamber in order to examine their bodies fortnightly and maybe sometimes suck their blood or rim them be accepted into this contest? Cuz I already got one.

I will examine the rules.

No, but it is story that needs to be told. It could be sent in as one of the regular submissions, of course.
