…..Then I went to “The Evolution of Fanfic,” which interested me since I caught the end of the era where fan fic was something found in fanzines and sharing them was a very private, under the table thing.  I remember that I didn’t get into fandom until college, when I finally had internet access.  This panel felt very academic, and was interesting.  The very first slash story, for example, was a Kirk/Spock story that started as a writing exercise in which the writer didn’t identify the characters or their sexes, though the author said in her notes that’s who she was writing about.  Apparently, it’s online somewhere, and now I have to find it….  Anyway, the gist of this panel is that we all have it easy these days…

The Star Trek story is called “A Fragment Out of Time”. You can read more about its history at Fanlore, the fan run wiki about media fandom.
