Is it as annoying to anyone else when, in a summary, someone writes "Sorry, I suck at summaries" or "Story better than it sounds"? If you suck at smmaries, then just take a line fron the story, or give a brief statement. Ususally the summaries that say those things are not bad until that is said. It usually turns me off reading something, does it to anyone else?
Slash: Slash fiction is a genre of fan fiction that focuses on the depiction of romantic or sexual relationships between fictional characters of the same sex. While the term was originally restricted to stories in which male media characters were involved in an explicit adult relationship as a primary plot element, it is now often used to refer to any fan story containing a pairing between same-sex characters, although many fans distinguish the female-focused variety as a separate genre commonly referred to as femslash. The characters are usually not engaged in such relationships in their respective fictional universes.[
Yaoi: Yaoi (やおい)[nb 1] also known as Boys' Love, is a popular Japanese term for female-oriented fictional media that focus on homoerotic or homoromantic male relationships, usually created by female authors. Originally referring to a specific type of dōjinshi (self-published works) parody of mainstream anime and manga works, yaoi came to be used as a generic term for female-oriented manga, anime, dating sims, novels and dōjinshi featuring idealized homosexual male relationships.
See the difference? Pairing Spock and Kirk is not YAOI. It is SLASH. I am really getting sick of that. Yaoi is a term specifically for Japanese works, Slash refers to everything else.I'm going through Merlin fic right now and I cannot COUNT the number of times I've come accross Merlin/Arthur yaoi. Are Merlin and Arthur from a Japanese Manga? No. Then use the proper term, please. It's slash.
I've even seen the same with Kirk/Spock - The ORIGINS of the term slash - have yaoi warnings on them.
Just NO. Please....
