Ouran High School Host Club is a shoujo manga and anime. Ouran is a reverse-harem romantic comedy that pokes gentle fun at various tropes and clichés from the shoujo and yaoi genres.
Haruhi Fujioka is a scholarship student at the exclusive Ouran High School. Due to her lack of interest in boy/girl differences, and the high cost of Ouran's school uniform, Haruhi dresses in old, boyish clothes. Her tousled hair, blocky glasses, and unfashionable clothes lead to Haruhi being mistaken as a boy by most of her classmates.
After accidentally knocking over a very expensive vase that the Host Club was planning to auction, Haruhi is roped into the club as a dogsbody. The members of the Host Club--especially it's number one star, Tamaki Suoh--are fascinated by Haruhi and her commoner ways. Haruhi is eventually promoted to a position as a host, as the Host Club's "Shadow King," Kyoya Ootori, promises to waive her debt if Haruhi can attract 100 client requests.

Pre-anime Ouran fandom was very small. The fandom blossomed rapidly after the anime was fansubbed (the anime's release saw the end of Ouran High School's rare-fandom eligibility for Yuletide, for example).
Early on, the fandom embraced Haruhi and a multitude of het pairings. While the anime seemed to be heading in the direction of Tamaki/Haruhi, fans paired her with any--and all!--members of the Host Club. Slash fics grew in number rapidly, the most popular pairings being Kyoya/Tamaki and the twincest pairing Kaoru/Hikaru. Despite the popularity of these pairings, many others--het, slash, and threesomes--were embraced by the fandom.
Due in part to the large number of bishounen that make up Ouran's central cast, many Mary Sues populate FanFiction.Net's Ouran High School Host Club's section.
