Found this interesting article today linked from theonering.net. The article, from the 'style' section of the July 2004 issue of Sunday Times Magazine, was obviously written by a fellow Legolas fangirl, and comes complete with a lovely hobbity illustration borrowed from 'The Theban Band'!
I love reading articles analyzing the culture and reasonings behind the writings of slash fic. I can sit and read these things for hours, it's so fascinating...plus, it gives me good logical arguments to use to justify my reading and viewing habits. My dad and my brothers know I read slash and watch QAF, and they thought I was nuts at first, but the 'guys-like-watching-girls-go-at-it-with-each-other-so-why-can't-I-watch/read-guys-do-the-same?' theory made sense to them, so they don't give me any grief about it now. They don't really need to know how deep my emotional responses to slash fanfic actually go. *G*
