Abstract [pt]

Partindo do contexto da “fandom culture”, este artigo incide a atenção nos subgéneros de ficção de fãs (“fan fiction”) e explora o modo como estes contestam géneros sexuais fixos e posições de sujeito disponíveis na sociedade normativa. Uma vertente, particularmente forte, entre os subgenéros de ficção de fãs é o “slash” (same pairing): o emparelhamento sexual ou romântico entre dois personagens do mesmo sexo que na história original são heterossexuais. A partir do conceito de re-escrita, analisa-se um corpus de textos de slash em Português (do Brasil e Portugal), publicados nas páginas “Archive of Our Own” e “Spirit Fanfics e Histórias”. Estas ficções reelaboram e reinventam narrativas de heteronormatividade, colocando as suas personagens favoritas em cenários alternativos, desta forma explorando o que significa ser queer, em termos de agência individual e de poder. Ao reelaborar as narrativas favoritas (canónicas e populares) e os seus personagens preferidos, os escritores/fãs inscrevem-nos em novas situações e subjectividades que desafiam os discursos de heteronormatividade, deste modo configurando os elementos para uma heterotopia queer.

Slash Fiction on the Internet as Heterotopic Space and Queer Resistance

This article focuses on some subgenres of fan fiction and explores how they challenge fixed gendered, sexual and subject positions prevalent in the normative society. One particularly strong strand among these subgenres is slash (same pairing): the sexual or romantic pairing of two same-sex characters who in the original story are heterosexual. Drawing on the concept of rewriting we analyze a corpus of slash texts in Portuguese (from Brazil and Portugal), published on the online communities "Archive of Our Own" and "Spirit Fanfics e Histórias". These fan stories rework and reinvent narratives of heteronormativity through placing their favorite characters into alternative settings, and thereby exploring the means of being queer in terms of individual agency and power. By rewriting their favorite narratives (canonical and popular) and favorite characters, fan-writers inscribe them into new situations and subjectivities that challenge the discourses of heteronormativity, thus configuring the elements for a queer heterotopia.
