... awful-ly great. Really, this is so sick, it's beautiful. I'd love to see Jon Stewarts expression as he read this stuff....

Not sure what that was, but I suddenly feel teh need for an enema and a mindwashing.

Bwaaahahahaha! Good lord, this is mind-bending.

I really wish Jon would mention this on the show.

Bored housewives popularized this Slash trend with Star Trek. To study the pathology of these types demonstrates they're quite normal. Intriguing.

“Stephen, they know we’re sharing a room,” said Jon as he pointed to the other bed, which was still made. Their suitcases were the only thing that had touched it since they arrived. “They just don’t know that we’re sharing one of those.”

Do you think JS is really using that line? I mean, c'mon. This story is totally unrealistic.

Howcome no one every writes any hetro slash?

Just when I thought I'd run out of things to think about to keep me from getting an erection at the wrong times. Excellent.

Because there is no such thing as hetero slash. If they were hooking up Jon and... I dunno... Sandra Bullock, it would be called het.

Of course, once you hear about it, you think, how could there not have been Daily Show slash fiction?

Which led me to Google, oh, "NASCAR slash." Of course. Again, how could I not have known?

Maybe because, by definition, it would be an oxymoron. Hetero fanfiction is just called "het" (don't know if there're any real-person het fanfics, though).

(and don't ask me why I know all this >_>;;;)

My favorite quote about fan fiction in general is one that I've forgotten the source to. It's, "fan-fiction is an insult to anyone who has ever liked anything."

Timeless wisdom, once again horribly, horribly confirmed.

Mmm. How about some metafilter slash? I am seeing ParisParamus/Pretty_Generic.

Here you go.

Unfortunately, my all-time favorite find - Airwolf slashfic - seems to have fallen off the 'net. A tragic loss for us all.

Funny thing about slash fiction is that it's almost exclusively written by straight women. The weird, stay-at-home-with-a-hundred-cats type.

oh shit!

At first I didn't see what this was, and I was thinking, why is this important to me.. then I clicked some pink text.
I might have to clear my history now..

k,hmc - Mmm. How about some metafilter slash?

ask.metafilter sighed, one of those long languous sighs that end up deeper than they had planned to be. "metatalk is all talk, no walk. What was it that metafilter always says..., 'All hat, no cattle...?'"

"Damnit, I'm ask.metafilter, I deserve more than just empty bluster. I need a *real* 'page. metafilter, well now that's a 'page. Tall, blue, and interesting. Complex, yeah."

and the scripts within ask.metafilter's database, covered with soft flowing curls, started churning, "Yeah, that'll show metatalk up, make metatalk have to pay attention to me now. I'm ask.metafilter, not even metafilter can resist me! And if that doesn't work out, there's always that monkey, or even what's-it's-name chat, that chat guy."

Well, consdering how many Republicans that seem to be coming out of the closet lately... it really wouldn't be slash then, would it? That's just boring ol' plain vanilla gay porn.
posted by Talanvor at 8:03 PM on September 26, 2005


I was just wondering the other day if there was TDS slash. It's an internet barometer of a certain level of pop culture saturation--somewhere in between x number of fawning geocities sites and having your head photoshopped into a bunch of porn.

So nice to see the boys have arrived. I will be mentally filing away some of those Colbert vignettes for future recall. rrrrrowr.

Please, God, let all the NASCAR slash feature Dick Trickle in one way or another.

And please let most of the stories feature someone getting a rubber pulled from his right rear.

OK, now that I posted this to the right thread. I found Harry Potter-George Bush fanfiction. I kid you not.

Draco sniggered. Sirius shot him a dangerous look. But George apparently had something more to say. He looked from Draco to Harry and then told them, very much in earnest, “You boys want to think about the sinful way you’re living your life. You could each-- you could find a girl. Two girls. I’m sure you would like some girls. Boys should like girls, you know.”

Harry was nonplussed by this impromptu speech, but Draco didn’t miss a beat. “Naw,” he said, looking George straight in the face, “Girls are ok, but Harry’s got a great dick.”

George looked scandalized; Sirius rolled his eyes. “Goodbye George,” he said. “Have fun running the country.” And then on impulse, and because it seemed a primo joke, Sirius grabbed George Herbert Walker Bush and kissed him full on the mouth. Draco whistled. Harry gaped. George grabbed the back of the couch for support.


I win.

Why exactly did the Daily Show people have to be contacted about this? I'm just wondering.

Personally, if I were to stumble upon a Livejournal community whose members write silly porn about public figures, my last thought would be to tell said public figures about the existence of said community.

Seriously. Why?
posted by mumble at 12:52 AM on September 27, 2005


For the love of sweet sweet comedy, of course, silly.

Seriously.

Forwarding Dick Cheney (for example) some trousersnake haliburtonporn that someone wrote wouldn't be much more than pestering the old bastard, and would probably get you frogmarched down to the nearest re-education centre. Pointless, sure.

But sending a link to this stuff to those wacky folks at the Daily Show (who dedicate part of each of their shows to 'interviewing' slightly off people, which one kinda assumes slash authors must be) just maybe might result in a few more laughs for everyone. And god knows we need more of those these days.

Why?

Just the price you pay for fame, I guess.

(I'm not sending anyone any email, though.)
posted by gohlkus at 2:04 AM on September 27, 2005


stavrosthewonderchicken, for me there's a difference between interviewing "slightly off people" and knowing that someone out there is writing angsty porn about me. Why can't you just a) leave the slashers alone and b) let Jon et al. live on in ignorant bliss?

Informing them serves absolutely no purpose you could convincingly explain to me, other than fuelling the righteous outrage among the sexually well-adjusted members of Teh Internet Police.

(All this assuming, of course, that the "omg look at this!!11!" emails even reach those guys, that they don't know about TDS slash yet, and that they actually care.)

lol. Like lodurr, I'd love to see Jon's face when he reads the site. :p

Cause hope springs eternal for a special segment where they'll re-enact it? Or at least Jon and Colbert will look all doe-eyed at each other some more?

Outrage? Do you really think people are sending it because they're outraged? It's amusing and funny. I'm pretty sure the folks at the Daily Show have a sense of humor and will appreciate this amusing and funny stuff.
posted by lazy-ville at 5:37 AM on September 27, 2005


Seriously, man: This is comedy gold to them. It will make them uncomfortable, queasy, uneasy, and it will get them big laughs. They'd seriously want to know.

(Actually, it occurs to me that thye probably already know, but figured that it was too hard to play the fish until people were watching. I.e., someone will have to report it about them before they can really use it. Anybody got any media contacts <g />?)

Jeez, mumbles, lighten up. They'd probably think this was hilarious.

If the Daily Show doesn't pick one of the most egregiously alarming stories, drive over to the author's house and re-enact it word for word in front of them, the terrorists will have won.
posted by felix at 9:31 AM on September 27, 2005


If the Daily Show does anything about this, it will only give fuel to the fire of fanfic writers.

I take it most of you don't spend much time in fanfiction communities? :)
