slash

A type of fan fiction that explores a sexual and/or romantic relationship between two characters (usually male) that are not romantically involved in the source material. The name comes from the slash (/) that typically separates the two characters' names in the story's title or description. Dean and Castiel are my favorite characters on Supernatural, so yeah, I've read Destiel slash.
