Joss Whedon quote - fandom gets into eve

request

Hi all.

If this is too OT or not allowed, just delete, but I could use the help.

I'm writing my thesis to earn my undergrad degree on slash, and the stigmatization of fans in general, and slash writers/readers/fans in particular, and I was wondering if anyone would be willing to email me at slashthesis@gmail.com and talk about their experiences with slash:

how they got into slash and fandoms, from the discovery of slash, to the realization that you could/did like it and why, to "coming out" as a slasher to real life/online friends, to being a newbie, to getting involved in slash-oriented communities, to writing/reading it, etc. How do you perceive slash, why do you like/are invested emotionally in slash, how you think others perceive you because of your involvement in slash, why some people see the slash subtext in the source texts (i.e. SGA) and why some don't. How did you become a slasher?

If you are willing to email me, all your responses will remain confidential and anonymous, following the ethical guidelines laid down by my university's ethics board. I'll use a pseudonym or designation (i.e. Subject A) for each person, so not even your online persona will be compromised.

thank you kindly. That’s slashthesis@gmail.com

X-posted. A lot. I’m spreading a wide net.
