Also in awesome news, I slept from 8am to 4pm today, yay.
Also, also, this post further discusses the "slash gaze" from that one post on metafandom last week or whenever, and analyses scenes from fics where guys are looking or being looked at.
And while I can't even really express my confusion over the whole of the original post, this is one part where I can. The original post talks about how this is the specific "slash aesthetic", but how can this be possible? The very fact that there are two men involved means there will be men doing the looking and men being looked at. This applies for gay porn, lit, even real life. How can it be something specifically slashy/the defining characteristic of slash?
