July Feature: Same-Sex Pairings
Having just trawled through the Quicksilver Quill Award nominees, I realised that the past year has brought a lot of new SSP works to MNFF. Not only from the Cotillion, but from some of the established authors working through each and every corner of the archives. Same-Sex Pairings is a bit of a niche writing category, but some of the products of that category are stunning, indeed.
Your challenge, my dear SPEWers, is to find a same-sex pairing story and review it. It doesn't have to be specifically in Same-Sex Pairings; it could be in Femmeslash, Harry/Draco, Remus/Sirius, or even in a completely different category but featuring a same-sex pairing.
As usual, ask and answer one topic question (TQ). Here are a few to get you started:
As a reader, to you approach SSP differently than het romance stories?
Do you, as a reader and reviewer, hold SSP fics to a different standard of pairing plausibility than you do for het pairings?
Do you find rarepair SSP to be more or less interesting than more mainstream pairings?
This activity must be completed by no later than the end of the day on 15th August to count as your monthly activity in your July requirements.
