Star Trek Slash Common People

You learn something every day. Or you should. Today I learnt there is a special word for homosexual fan fiction, and where it came from.
Slash. Slash fiction is erotic fan fiction. I stumbled over this when I foolishly googled Sam and Frodo – well, do you know what those to got up to on the slopes of Mount Doom? Not telling, but it was a bit – a lot – obscene.
And it originated with Star Trek. Slash from Kirk Slash Spock, to differentiate from Kirk and Spock.
And then I watched this. I do hope you enjoy it as much as I did. That’s two of the Shatner versions I like now – Lucy in The Sky with Diamonds lends itself really well to his spoken style.
