Gay-themed fan fiction, often known as “slash” for the subgenre focusing on same-sex pairings, has a surprisingly long history, dating back to Kirk/Spock stories in fanzines from the late 1970s. But today, the Internet has made an incredibly diverse range of prurient gay fiction available, catering to every imaginable fandom, pairing, and fetish; even those who fantasize about gay orgies with shape-shifting were-cuttlefish aren’t left out - though thankfully, Someone to Cuttle is set in its own world rather than the Finding Nemo universe.
And yet, there still remain a handful of niches yet to explore. While the interests of time, space, and decency prohibit me from filling the Geeks Out blog with the next slash epic, I’m going to take my crystal ball and gaze into the very, very strange future of same-sex fanfiction.
Tetris: Blocks of Passion
Plot: Tetriminos S and T are used to falling together - but they never thought they’d fall in love! But as the screen fills up, can their red-hot romance survive?
Excerpt: T gasped as S landed on him with a hard drop, perfectly filling the empty square on his left side. “Oh, S,” T sighed with pleasure. “I’ve stacked up with Tetrominoes around the world. I thought I’d found my perfect fit before. But Z’s, L’s, O’s - none of them can make me feel the way you do. Make a line with me, S.”
Rocket Raccoon and Groot: Arboreal Ardor
Plot: The stars of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy are splitting from their teammates to blaze a trail of destruction across the cosmos - and into each other’s hearts!
EXCERPT: With one blast from Rocket’s pilfered Badoon rifle, Xemnu the Titan lay dead, his thick white fur now streaked with jets of red. The planet was free from the beast’s tyranny, and the Infinity Gauntlet was now forever out of Xemnu’s grasp.
Standing atop Groot’s shoulder, Rocket’s tail twitched with the joy of hard-fought victory... and of anticipation. “Now, it’s time to get your own big gun ready,” he whispered suggestively.
“I AM GROOT,” said Groot.
Groot’s sap began to flow.
