Description from community info page:

For readers who want to read a good story without the smut, and for writers who want to write a good story without the smut.

The vast majority of slash or yaoi fictions seems to be comprised of sex. I don't have a problem with sex or smut in stories. I read it and enjoy as much as the next person. But I think there are more than a few authors out there--like myself--who don't write it and feel that, as a result, they lose some credibility as slash or yaoi writers.

I think many of us, at one time or another, have received a review suggesting that a story might have been better had their been sex in it. As though a good plot and characters are not enough to sustain a story and make it worth reading.

So, too, I imagine some readers are not necessarily always inspired to wade through a lot of sex for the sake of advancing the plot. Again I stress, I am not against sex in a story. But sometimes I--and I would imagine others--would just like to read a simple story without the sex or the smut. Something modest and PG; just as enjoyable, but not as hard.

So I open this community to readers and writers both who want a simple slash story, without all the explicit detail.


Thoughts, anyone? I'd like to hear the opinions of fellow smut-lovahs and writers on this one.

Though still awaiting several additions. Proof the universe cannot live on slash alone.

Now on to my sci-fi fridays.
