To cut with sweeping strokes.

In British slang, it means to urinate.

A famous guitarist.

A genre of fanfiction in which two characters are engaged in a homosexual love affair. The name comes from the slash between the two characters featured; Kirk/Spock, Sam/Frodo, Pippin/Merry, and so forth. Gay male pairings are usually referred to as yaoi, and especially with anime.

Femslash or femmeslash is used when the couple is a lesbian couple; Arwen/Eowyn, Galadriel/Luthien, et cetera. Yuri is the term used for femmeslash in anime.

Slash ranges in subject matter from innocent crushes to passionate, endearing love to explicit erotica. The story can also range from perky and humorous to dramatic and angsty to heartbreakingly tragic, and have a sweet to harsh quality.

Although gay males are often thought to be the main writers of slash, young, heterosexual women are the ones who write most of the slash... thus becoming good friends of gay men.

Since straight men are often turned on by lesbian erotica, why not straight women being turned on by gay male erotica?
Barney the dinosaur lay in a bloody heap, slashed to pieces by his detractors.

Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and Highlander, among other works, are fertle grounds for slash writers. LOTR, with the intimacy and love between the male characters, is especially rich with slash material.

One of the BEST gutartists ever. Slash (a.k.a. Saul Hudson) was born on July 23, 1965 in Hampstead, England. He was the lead guitarist for Guns N'Roses, Slash's Snakepit and Velvet Revolver. Slash is married to Perla Hudon and they have 2 children, London Emilio and Cash Anthony. He is DEFINATELY in the top 3 best guitarists in the world, and anyone who thinks differently is a dumbass!!
Slash fucking ROCKS! When he's on stage playing his Gibson Les Paul guitar with a cigarette hanging out of the corner of his mouth - you can see true Rock N' Roll right in front of your eyes!
