museofspeed: (Best friends)
[personal profile] museofspeed
Shana: Do you ever look at your friends and think, "in the fanfiction of my life, we're about to have a threesome?"
Sara: haaaa!!
Sara: ...you know, sometimes.
Shana: It's even weirder to look at the people you dislike and think it.
Shana: This might be why I've stopped slashing as much as I used to.
Sara: what was it--oh, I think Zoe explained a fandom thing to her sister by saying "it'd be like you and Sara making out in front of me"
Shana: Aaaaaah, I love Zoe.
Sara: I have no idea what she was explaining, but it was hysterical
Sara: and yeah. I like slash, but I also really like friendship stuff and that happens far less
Shana: Yeah. And het.
Sara: yeees.
Sara: oh fandom
Shana: I want to just... write some epic friendship fics.
Shana: And I wish there was a term for gen shipping.
Sara: that would be awesome
Shana: Because I have so many awesome gen ships.
Sara: yeeeees, me too
Shana: Andrew/Anya, Spike/Dawn, Spike/Joyce, Kon/Tim, (though I like them shipped too, it's just overdone and that annoys me), Paco/Jaime, Cassie/Cissie, Dick/Tim.
Sara: yeeees. <3
Shana: ...I hereby declare that a double slash shall denote genshipping.
Sara: heee
Shana: I genship Andrew//Anya.
Sara: I like genshipping as a term.
Shana: This fic is Kon//Tim.
Sara: ::giggles::
Shana: I have the best ideas at 3 AM.
Sara: clearly!

I...have a list of such things, actually. And I am now currently editing to use the double slash :D

fawerwqrwfe that is amazing. THROUGH THE HELP OF MY FRIENDS, IT SHALL BUILD AND BECOME MIGHTY! And then I will set all the double slashes to explode and through it destroy the world. I MEAN WHAT? WHO SAID THAT?

Oh god, I've got to go to bed. If I have awesome ideas at 3 AM, at 4 I go insane and start plotting to end the world, apparently.

Do it! Tell your friends!

Why not just use "&"?

From: [identity profile] museofspeed.livejournal.com
I mean, you can. But it's in a pretty difficult place to type, and you need to hit the shift key, and it's not as streamlined looking. The slash keeps the person/person look, but there's a second one for added distance! It's like clothes, which you are more likely to wear around your friends than your lover.

Though, of course, you can use &. I just like // better.

This is the most brilliant idea to come out of fandom in the last year. :D Will start using and applying retroactively immediately!

Wow, high praise! I will start grinning manically whenever I see it used!

VERY MUCH SO! And maybe instead of "/" we can use "|." I crazy genship SV!Clark|Ollie, Cyclops|Gambit, Rogue|Sam, and SV!Bart|Lian.

Oh wait, I missed that last bit with the double backslash. *facepalm*

Heee, yes. Though the | is good too, but it shares with the & the problem that it involves hitting a shift key and is therefore difficult. Also, the // puts a little bit of friendly distance, like clothing does!
