    EDIT by Minion:
    This once was part of this review thread: The Art of Self-Fashioning by Lomonaaeren - M

    It's slash without slash. There is everything you can find in slash, psychologically, without the ships part. It is propaganga of homosexuality, and dangerous besause at first you read this, safe, story, not understanding what is wrong with it, then you get involved more and more, start sharing some of their views, and then one day you find youself sailing the wrong ship. The two posts above illustrate my point. Kids must read this story with their parents present so they can explain and comment on it.

    He's from Russia. They hate the gays over there. Their hatred defies all logic and reason. Just ignore him and move on.

    Damn those homosexuals and their proper ganja.

    First it's just one hit, then next thing you know the whole bowl is gone and you're all too chilled out to hate anyone anymore and everyone is getting along.

    Perish the thought.

    The story is fine, and if the fact that the author also writes slash keeps you from reading it, it's your loss.

    Take a generic Harry Potter slash fiction. In there Harry Potter's day goes like this.
    1) He does some awesome and heroic stuff.
    2) Some guy's remark upsets him.
    3) He gets wimpy/emotional/depressed/crawls into a hole to cry.
    4) His mate comes out, and says, `hey why are you upset, mate?` And Harry answers something to the effect, `this bad person says I'm bad/dark/arrogant/not good enough. It's my fault these people died,` and on, and so forth. And then his mate tells him, `hey, you are actually awesome, don't listen to what these bad people are telling you.`
    5) Harry stops crying, realizes that he is actually awesome, that these bad people were trying to upset him on purpose, and eventually recovers his good spirits.

    The next day the cycle repeats exactly to the letter. There's no character growth at all.

    This story, it poses itself as though there is no slash. But it does not matter because the same steps happen anyway. No character growth happens.

    Harry Potter's day in the Art of Self-Fashioning goes like this.
    1) He does some epic stuff - check.
    2) Upsetting stuff is less straight forward. Goes like this. He gets lonely/starts to actually enjoy life (takes to flying)/gets too attached to people (like Terry, or McGonagall). As a result he starts resenting his self-appointed mission or his parents, and wishes to be like everyone. This upsets him because he thinks that the touchy-feely stuff will derail his mission, or that the guardian/confidant person will forbid him from taking this mission. Upsetting stuff - check.
    3) He gets emotional, depressed, and starts to run away. As in literally running away. He just stops mid conversation, turns, and flees. Check.
    4) A nifty trick here, seeing that Harry has no mate or confidant.
    4a) He either does some heavy duty self-analysis that allows his to get his emotions under control and prevents him from doing some stupid over-the-board stuff.
    4b) Or his transfigured pets will rub his cheek in affection/do whatever, smart fellas.
    4c) Or there's just a sceen cut to fast-forward to step 5.
    5) Check

    The cycle repeats itself - check. No character growth - check. Hence, slash. Q.E.D.

    You're an idiot.

    Edit: Maybe so, or perhaps not, but how about you write more than three words if you're going to comment? Warning. -Sesc

    High Score:
    Hey let's take a generic look at Alexeyy's post history.

    Woo lads! Gay bashing!

    The problem with all of that, before I get infracted, is that it's actually the formula for all Harry Potter fanfiction. Insert harems and magical cores where applicable.

    What Lungs said.

    This list itself is rather generic and covers such a wide range of possibilities that most fics fit into its scheme.

    But then - isn't all fanfiction just gay?
