Can you imagine the well-known story “Beauty and the Beast” in style “slash art”? The origin of the slash take place in fanfiction or fanfic (a literature created by fans for fans, in other words an amateur literature). The original slash fiction contains male/male subtext, based on homoerotic relationship. Have you ever heard about other variety of homoerotic amateur fiction – yaoi? It is a manga/anime genre, but the sense is the same.
“What would happen if a boy falls in love with a beast?” – the old story in a new manner. Instead of Emma Watson in an upcoming movie “Beauty and the Beast” try to imagine any male actor. In such version we don`t observe any gigantic changes, the idea is the same, but the love story is based on m/m slash.
