Swimslash

I used to be totally against RPF, until...

The Olympics.

Now I'm totally, completely into swimslash - that is, slashy Olympic swimmer goodness. Anyone else into this?

Ahahaha, thank God it's not just me.

I mainly write for Thorpe/Phelps, although I have experimented with Pieter van den Hoogenband as well, who is just TOO pretty. My fic is all here if anyone wants to read.

There are a few livejournal communities for this topic:

Thorpedo Speedo appears to be the most active Phelps/Thorpe comm. Phelps n' Thorpe is another, newer one.

Hoogenband/Thorpe's Journal (Ian/Pieter)

The Slashy World of Sports is for all Olympic slash, but most of it is about the aforementioned swimmers.

Thanks for the links Pixiedude!

Ashleigh - Whoa. I've just read Fear and Saccharine, and both are fantastic. I'm usually pretty choosy about the fics I read, but your writing totally blew me away. Absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you! I was nervous about posting that here among my supposed peers, so I'm glad yall liked.

thorpedo_speedo is definitely one of the most active LJ communities and I post there often. There's also ian_pieter for Thorpe/van den Hoogenband worship, olympicot3 for the simultaneous worship of Hoogie, Thorpe and Phelps, and olympic_slash for the general love of slashy Olympians.

As far as webpages go, Olympia seems to be THE Olympicslash archive right about now.

Ashleigh - just checked your site and saw that you have two more up, yay! I'm trying to savour them slowly as little pick-me-ups during the day, but I couldn't resist reading The Good Life now. And all I can say is Awwwww...

And also, great writing as usual.

Thank you. I tend to write pretty frequently. I just updated again with four more stories.

Yay! Even more fics to read! I am addicted now. Ashleigh, you're like my swimslash pusher.

Ed: I think I just read everything there is. Sigh. I'm very glad you're a fast writer! (And even more glad that you are a really, really good one. ) I was very glad that there was a sequel to Takeoffs and Landings, but the sequel left me wanting more yet again. Have you any plans to make it into a trilogy of some sort?

Thank you. I do write rather fast don't I? LOL. I'm TOTALLY a swimslash pusher. A friend of mine has a saying - "Gay people don't recruit, but slashers do!"

No, no third piece to the "airport series" is planned. I think the ship is sailed - although if the muse strikes I wouldn't deny her. I'm now working on a series called A Series Of Small Spaces which puts various swimmers in *ahem* small spaces and odd situations that quickly turn adult.

That's very true.

A Series of Small Spaces sounds really good. Can't wait to read it!

Hee! Thank you. I'm currently brainstorming for Part 3 but I swear there will be a phone booth somewhere in here. Just for you.
