Alright, y’all, we’re continuing our 9-week marathon of all things Star Trek, and it’s only fitting that we dedicate a week of Fanfic Wednesday to the fandom that gave life to a lot of what we’ve become accustomed to in fanfiction, namely slash shipping. Fun fact: the term slash fic was invented by the Trekker fandom.

So, set phasers to binge-reading, and settle in for the long haul.
