I'm vexed

Why can't people agree what Real Person Fic/Slash is? At least when it comes to posting it?

I've heard ten different definitions this week - all designed to exclude one type of RPFic.

It vexes me. I'm exceedingly vexed </commodus>

The only one I can, maybe, agree on as questionable is when an RL person is portrayed in a movie (eg, Dorie Miller in Pearl Harbor, played by Cuba Gooding Jr, or even John Nash in A Beautiful Mind). I could accept that kind of fic being acceptable on non-RPFic lists.

But I'm rather annoyed at people accepting RP character/FP character and yet saying RPS is not okay. That's a double standard.

But I suppose expecting fannish consensus on anything is a bit of a Sisyphean task.
