I have to chuckle. I'm so not a slasher in any way shape or form. Don't read it, don't write it. But the majority of the folks I've run into here in LJ land, whose posts I enjoy reading, are slashers. It's just like my RL :) All my best friends are what we call "slash sluts". My entertainment comes from tossing out pairings that squick them. I actually verbally 'wrote' a fic on a car trip that was Red Dwarf, Cat/Lister with lots of fish oil. I hurt their brains [beam] Yesterday, I made my roommate scream when we were talking about Gilmore Girls and I suggested Luke/Jackson. .... how does my garden grow?
