OutFest LA 2016 Top Choice Slash

Woah, coming of age writing slash fiction never seemed so funny. Our top choice for Outfest is the incorrigible Slash about a young teen trying to just write fan faction, fan fiction with hot action. If the trailer is any indication it's going to be a funny coming of age classic for nerds. Gotta love that wand love for Harry Potter and Dumbledore.

Neil (Michael Johnston, Teen Wolf) is an introverted, questioning high school freshman. Lacking any friends IRL, his main social outlet is the steamy fan fiction he writes about Vanguard, the brawny, galaxy-hopping hero of a popular sci-fi franchise. When his stories are exposed in class Neil is mortified, but the slightly older, effortlessly cool Julia (Hannah Marks, Awkward.)comes to his defense. An erotic fan fic writer herself, Julia pushes Neil to publish his stories to an online “adult” forum, where they quickly grab the attention of the site moderator, Denis (Michael Ian Black). When Neil is invited to present his work at a comic con live-read event, he has to face the fact that Denis’ interest in him may be more than simply professional… perhaps like his own feelings for Julia.
