    Summary

    This is the first of a series of essays I wish to write on the Gender Politics of Sherlock fandom. There are many things I wanted to say at the official panel but was unable to, since it was derailed by a group of individuals who showed up with the intention of intimidating and harassing the panel moderator. In future essays, I’d like to share my thoughts on femslash, Mary Sues and the fridging of female characters, on heteronormativity in slash, and on queer representation beyond slash (bisexual, pansexual, asexual and trans people in fanworks and fan spaces). I’d like to touch on race and being a queer Woman of Color in a fandom mostly interested in White male characters.

    Before I get to those subjects, however, I feel a need to return to the original intended topic: the essay I began writing on my phone on the plane.

    And that essay is on the subject of noncon fanworks.

    Summary

    “Okay, what’s your email?” Otabek asks.

    Yuri can’t help but laugh. “You want a landline number too? Maybe my street address? Come on, nobody uses email anymore. But I’ve got Messenger, Instagram, Skype, Snapchat… take your pick.”

    Otabek wrinkles his nose. “I do not use a single one of those. So I pick email.”

    (After the GPF, Yuri wants to keep in touch. A great deal of lying about feelings ensues.)
