"I'm Not Cutting My Hair" is a slash Sentinel 132-page anthology. The title of this zine reflects a trend in the Sentinel fandom. As Senad developed a list culture that tried to keep from offending anyone, Sentinel slash fiction developed a growing list of warnings. The trend peaked in late 1999 or early 2000, when during a Senad discussion about warnings—with many people suggesting things that should be warned for—one fan asked that people warn for stories where Blair cuts his hair, which she personally found traumatic. The idea was quickly shouted down and the fan withdrew her request, but it was such an extreme one that word spread out to other fandoms, cementing Sentinel fandom's reputation at the time as the most-warned-for fandom ever.

Reactions and Reviews

Blair's hair is, of course, the theme of this 'zine. Specifically, cut the curls and die! If you've never seen ENG's artwork go to AngelWings Press site and take a look at this cover. There ya go! We don't really have to review this do we? What more reason would you need to buy this 'zine? I would love to have this in a print. Hope that happens someday!

Just The Way You Are: Blair comes home from the academy where the hair isn't as popular with the cadets as it is with us. Blair's prepared to chop the locks but Jim convinces him not to. First-time story! Blair angst.

Desperate Measures: Blair shows Jim the hair's good for more than keeping the scalp covered! First-time.

All That I Am: Jim has a thing for Blair's tresses! Established couple.

The Perfect Blind Date: First-time. Blair sets Jim up with his idea of Jim's perfect mate.

What We Are: AU. Think Blair in cutoffs and a tool belt. Sigh. Angst, Blair owies and first-time!

Without Wordsv Jim and Blair go camping. I love camping stories! Hee. Established couple. Interesting non-dialog style. Pretty sensual.

The Short Of Things: Established couple. Jim thinks Blair has cut his hair and goes into a primal fit!

Only Promises: First-time, song lyrics. Blair gets a case of unrequited love blues and Jim catches the clue bus.

The Play: First-time. Jim finally notices Blair. Some primal Jim action!

It's Part Of Me: Established couple. Blair has a bad day and Jim has a hair fetish!

Long Hair And Leather: First-time. Blair gets stuck in a tight place and Jim helps him "out". Hee. Sexy Blair-in-leather color piece from K9! Totally yummy.
