Joss Whedon on Fanficion

This article about a possible remake of Buffy the Vampire Slayer discusses fanfiction including slash: Buffy the Vampire Slayer Without Joss Whedon? That’s Been Going on for Years. Here’s an excerpt:

Interestingly, Whedon has always been positive about fanfiction:

“I love it. I absolutely love it. I wish I had grown up in the era of fanfiction, because I was living those shows and those movies that I loved and I would put on the score to Superman and just relive the movie over and over.”

He has even been positive about slash fiction, which depicts romantic or sexual relationships between fictional characters of the same sex. “In my world, heroes bugger each other senseless. Not all of them, but more than you’d think, and probably not who you’re thinking.”

Article on Real Person Fiction has a feature called Fandom Friday where they post articles about various aspects of online fandom. A recent post of theirs detailed real person fiction and, of course, real person slash got a mention:

Another name for RPF is RPS, Real Person Slash. This offshoot isn’t surprising, since a lot of fanfiction is slashy, playing with subtext to present a more sexual/romantic take on the bonds forged in performance. RPS became more prevalent when the Backstreet Boy and *NSYNC were popular. Young men traveling together, presenting some cohesive image of the perfect guy? Yeah, I can see room for interpretation.
