But the key question for me now is:

  • What social action is the genre of slash fic used by writers & readers to accomplish?

Heh.

In this story, Jay loses track of time in a way that’s kind of important. Jensen is highly amused–until it’s clear that they’re not gonna make it back to civilization, to Gen, anytime soon.
