This is just my opinion, but isn't one of the purposes of fanfic to show facets of a character not shown in the original story? A good fanfic writer looks at the show, points at something, and asks: "What if this were different?" Then they write about the new situation and the characters reactions to it in such a way as to make the reader say: "Hey, I can really see So-and-so doing that!" That's what a good fanfic is. And if a fanfic like that happens to include Xanderslash..well, what's wrong with that?

I knew it!

Sorry, but I've always thought it would have made more sense if Xander's character was the gay one. Out of curiosity, where'd you find your info?
