I changed this from gen to slash as per Halliday's description. [1] Mrs. Potato Head 14:59, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

hm. the descriptions make it more sound like h/c slavefic with slashy subtext though. Has anyone read the thing and could weigh in?--RatCreature 15:20, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
The way it sounds to me it's gen (because the actor could see it at the con; it would have been under the table otherwise, right?) and there is nothing in the description that indicates slash to me. "Sexual overtones" could just as well be het subtext. --Doro 15:57, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
I have it - my first zine in fact. It is gen, but very h/c with sexual overtones - I call it "pre-slash". Read about it in Boldly Writing - it's mention several times. --Morgandawn 16:17, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
This is what the Agent with style website says: In this hard-to-find, award-winning novel by D.T. Steiner, with beautiful artwork by Karen Flanery, when the landing party that has beamed down to a planet named Atlantis discovers that the economy is based on owning and selling slaves, they object, and are captured and turned into slaves themselves. The Prefect finds Spock fascinating and pulls him from the state slave pool to become his own personal slave. At first Spock refuses, but learns that his resistance causes Kirk and McCoy to be brutally punished, so he gives in, doing the most menial tasks as well as the most objectionable whenever the Prefect snaps his fingers. On the outside, Spock may look and act like a well-trained slave, but on the inside, he is burning with plans to stage a slave rebellion -- no matter what the cost!--Silencio 16:22, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Alright, that seems to clear it up. :) We should go with Morgan's description and maybe add the AWS summary. (And everything else we can find. *g*) --Doro 16:31, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
