We're catching up on some of the admin tasks that we're a bit behind on, and we're noticing something that we need to call attention to:maleslashminis is for male/male slash stories.
(Be grateful: we resisted our urge to make that sentence blink.)
That doesn't mean that other pairings aren't welcome as part of the story--heck, with so many of our stories being set in the Buffyverse, which has both f/f and m/f canon pairings, that would be ridiculously limiting. And it doesn't mean that every story has to include NC-17 smut, lovingly described in every minute detail. (They totally can, if you want. Especially if there's Giles. But we digress.) It doesn't even mean that every story has to be relationship-focused; there's a definite place here for stories in which Wesley and Gunn are in an established relationship, and they fight
demons while bickering about whose turn it is to do the laundry.
What it does
mean is that if you
think your story is primarily gen, or primarily het, to the point that you'd label it that way in your header, then it doesn't fit here.
It's probably an awesome story, and if you wrote it to fit your assignment, you might even want to drop a link to the requester, who may very well enjoy stories about Xander and Andrew tooling around the country in a Ford pickup, looking for slayers and not
being attracted to one another at all, if she wanted Xander/Andrew fic in which they did the same thing but also made out a lot. But it's not a maleslashminis
We have no plans to read the posted stories and decide whether they're "slashy enough" to belong here. When we're reading your stories, we're too busy enjoying a good read to worry about any concept like "slashy enough," never mind how utterly nit-picky that would be. We're leaving that decision up to you, the authors. But if you
don't think your story is really slash, then we trust you to try again to give your requester the story that she (or he) asked for.
