For my Goldenlake buddies: I'm not half keeping up with One Sentence Week, even though it's massively fun. So, if you've written any (or know of any) that are likely to especially appeal to me, please don't be shy about letting me know! Comment here or message me there.

Smut Lite

(Using an icon I titled, "Love at First Sight," which is a statement appropriate to this entry. Because I like my boyslash-y icons, even though I hardly ever use them!)

A very quick, extremely slightly more fun entry: I'd like to thank the ladies of Goldenlake for making me appreciate the joys of R rated, and even PG-13 rated, smut.

This is where my fandom background makes things interesting: fans of Joss Whedon's various projects tend to like their smut hard (you even see an NC-21 tag, once in a while). And.... I'd be lying, big time, if I said I don't see the appeal. Ooh, do I!

So when Smackdown started out and people were talking about Operation: Smut, relating to a board with an R rating limit, my response was pretty much, "WTF?"

I totally get it now! It's the beauty of leaving just enough to the imagination, in literary form. And it's delicious. (And easier to do with originality, to my mind, than full-out porn fics.) This is definitely a lesson worth learning. (Have I  mentioned my extreme love for all things Goldenlake related? <3 )

Further commentary on writing, smut, and gender issues -- along with a March fic round up -- will probably be up Sunday. Which, ahem, is a great way to spend Easter.
