Textual Proctology

The evolution of fandom

In a meta-meta from there is discussion of real-person crack!fic:

asrimal: ENDS IN SEX

palmer_kun: Errrr... you seem to be implying that there's fanfic, and especially crack!fic, that does not.

deepbluemermaid: In general, I'd agree with you. But I was 9 when I wrote it! Kids these days, maybe...but this was in the halcyon days before the internet, when everyone was pure and innocent and Kirk and Spock were just good friends.

zomg teh gay!! OH NOES

maggiesox ponders the implications of California declaring gay marriage legal:

"I knew something had to be destroying traditional marriage when, around 3:30, wing2j and I (and every other heterosexual married couple I know) spontaneously got divorced. I'm looking forward to meeting the new lesbian wife I've been assigned, and I truly hope that wing2j's assigned husband can cook."

Context, not that there's anything wrong with that. Some of my best friends are contextual.
