    Summary

    Discussion regarding fanfiction tropes produced the observation that in one subset of Harry Potter fanfiction, "Harry/Draco slash" [HDS], Harry has a short, thick dick, while Draco's penis is long and thin. We tested the hypothesis that there was a consistent difference in how these two characters' genitalia were described. Additionally, we tested the hypothesis that slash fiction authors in this subset of fandom did not place equal emphasis on the description of testicles as compared with penii. We surveyed 100 HDS stories in online fanfiction archives and collected data on sexual description and content. Here we present the first quantitative test of fanon stereotypes and show that these explicitly sexual stories contain low levels of visual/sensory genital descriptions. Qualitative comparisons demonstrate trends in support of both hypotheses, although sample sizes prevent statistical significance. We use these findings to discuss how fanon may develop despite the incorrect assumption of perceived ubiquity.

    Summary

    Somewhere along the line, Tony had gotten it into his head that Captain America was invincible. Maybe it was the propaganda from when he was younger - comics and clips from the war - or maybe it was the unbelievable things he’d seen Cap make it through in the time they’d been working together. But either way, it had always seemed impossible to Tony that the Star Spangled Man with a Plan could be truly hurt.

    So this man - hooked up to lines and sensors, surrounded by beeping things, eyes refusing to open - this man isn’t Cap, he’s just Steve. And Steve is broken.
