    Summary

    "Would you like to take a walk with me?"

    Hopeful eyes. Polite smile. A hand offered to take his.

    「 I'd love to! + 」
    「 I would prefer somewhere… private. ♥︎ 」
    「 I'd rather not. × 」

    "I'd rather not." The guard visibly deflates.

    "Never approach me again."

    Summary

    Summary

    “Tony, listen to me," said Steve. "This isn’t you. You’re not a PI, you’re a genius billionaire playboy philanthropist superhero. You and everyone else who lives in the tower have all been put under a spell, and you need to come with me to break it.”

    I suppose that’s what I get for saying I’ve heard it all before, thought Tony.

    ***

    Someone's cast a spell on Avengers Tower that has changed each floor into a different kind of story, and trapped the Avengers inside. Steve mounts a rescue mission, starting with Tony Stark, PI, a noir detective who's got a thing for blonde bombshells who bring trouble to his door.

    IMPORTANT: If you've turned off skins, you need to turn them on for this story.

    Also, actual word count for this fic is around 30-35k words, because many words are hidden visually to make this work accessible for assistive technology.

    Summary

    Discussion regarding fanfiction tropes produced the observation that in one subset of Harry Potter fanfiction, "Harry/Draco slash" [HDS], Harry has a short, thick dick, while Draco's penis is long and thin. We tested the hypothesis that there was a consistent difference in how these two characters' genitalia were described. Additionally, we tested the hypothesis that slash fiction authors in this subset of fandom did not place equal emphasis on the description of testicles as compared with penii. We surveyed 100 HDS stories in online fanfiction archives and collected data on sexual description and content. Here we present the first quantitative test of fanon stereotypes and show that these explicitly sexual stories contain low levels of visual/sensory genital descriptions. Qualitative comparisons demonstrate trends in support of both hypotheses, although sample sizes prevent statistical significance. We use these findings to discuss how fanon may develop despite the incorrect assumption of perceived ubiquity.
