Fanfiction Comes Out of the Closet. Fascinating article over at about fans, slash fiction and TV shows. There's several Buffy mentions including an interesting discussion about Willow/Tara femslash.

Is it still slash if the characters that are being written about are gay?
Whether "slash" should include canonical pairings is a continuing point of debate.
Hubby's always so amazed at how many women love writing and reading and seeing man/man stuff. I figure it's just fair, seeing as for ages it's been accepted that men like girl on girl action!

Very well done article. The author did her research. And the L Word contest definitely seems to be breaking new ground.
