Now that was interesting.

Several years ago, I wrote an essay, The Slash Edge: Why "Queer as Folk" isn't Slashy. It got some mention at the time (whoa - six years ago!) and that was that.

I did an ljseek today, just out of curiousity and boredom, and I discovered that two people whom I have never met, shooting2kill (a Pros fan) and lemurgrrl (an ER fan) have both quoted this essay in the past couple of months - the second quoting from the first.

It's interesting reading what I wrote six years ago - the media landscape has changed, and certain definitions have changed - and I've also realized I wasn't defining "slash" so much as "slashiness", which has a sort of Colbertian shape to it.

I'm amused (although I do wish the first person had linked to the essay instead of quoting it whole.)
