what is a fanlisting?

To quote TFL: "A fanlisting is simply an online list of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are); they are just a place where you can sign up with other fans. TheFanlistings.org is the original (but not official) web directory for fanlistings, dedicated to uniting the fans." This fanlisting is for fem(me)slash fanfiction, about which more information can be found in the section below this.


about the subject

Femmeslash (also known as saffic, Sapphic, femslash, girlslash, slash, yuri, or shoujo-ai) is a variation on the traditional definition of slash fiction -- homosexual/homoerotic/homoromantic fanfiction. In femmeslash, female fictional characters are paired in a romantic and/or sexual relationship in a fan-written story. The prefix "fem" comes from a shortening of the word "female" and its alternate "femme" from the French for "woman".

Many fandoms are femmeslash-positive, including Hex, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Harry Potter, ER, Firefly, and, the first primarily femmeslash fandom, Xena: Warrior Princess. Older, more well-known fandoms also have growing femmeslash contingents, such as Star Trek, The X-Files, and comic books such as Purgatori, Catwoman and Harley & Ivy.

Femmeslash is a wide and varied genre, ranging from epic romances to hardcore pornography to lighthearted romps to darkest horror.

Thanks to Wikipedia for the above extract from their definition.


about the fanlisting

This fanlisting was approved by TFL in May 2006 after previously having been removed from the network. It's owned by Trialia; if you need to contact me, email trialia@gmail.com. :) I do not own the genre of fanfiction, quite obviously, and the only femmeslash fanfiction I own is what I myself have written. *grin* The layout for this fanlisting was made using an image found with Google, edited in Adobe Photoshop 7 and Notepad, using the font Violation (before it was trendy :P). It's optimised for 1024x768 resolution using the Mozilla Firefox browser; again, if you have any cross-compatibility problems, please contact me. Thanks for visiting!

Notes: The shoujo ai fanfiction listing was approved at TAFL in May 2010, and the yuri fanfiction adopted from Shukaku in the same month.
