I googled "slasher fiction" the other day and all I got was fan fiction based on tv/movie/music entertainers. "Slash"-as in Justin Timberlake/Adam Lambert making love. Now don't get me wrong, I'm glad people are motivated to write fiction, any fiction. But...  

They stole the title "Slasher Fiction" which was based on stories dealing with people escaping crazy masked psychopaths. It kinda pisses me off. Does anyone out there agree?

Actually, guy-on-guy or girl-on-girl fiction (usually fanfiction) is called "slash" not "slasher".
