Fandom Really Is Serious Business!  
Somebody (actually, two people) have conducted a scientific, statistical analysis of relative penis shape and other genital characteristics in Harry/Draco fan fiction. There are tables! There are graphs! There are Chi-Square analyses!

The question, then is whether the authors wrote this piece for an actual university program (if so, where is it, and how do I apply?!) or whether they simply had waaaaaaaaay too much time on their hands.

If anyone's looking for me, you can find me hiding in my closet and waiting for the world to go splodey.
Current Mood: WTF?!

That is the funniest thing I have ever read in my entire life :D

(And it is so going into the bookmarks. *snicker*)

Every time I think this fandom has shocked me for the final time, something like this comes along!

And I think this is just the tip of the iceberg....

For sure. I very much isolate myself from a lot of the weirdness by just hanging around on the Quill... whenever I venture farther away I end up getting scared and running back to safety.

I love that Draco icon!

I think I revel slightly in the weirdness. My sense of morbid curiosity has always been quite strong. I really should stop listening to it, though. I mean, it's the only reason I've seen episodes of Barney and the Teletubbies. *shudder*

Yeah, it's a great icon. I ganked it from someone on Fandom_Wank a while ago.

Fandom is a very, very weird place. Where did you even find this piece of erm, study? Apparently, written by a Professor? I sure do hope that is not just a fandom nickname this person has online, but a title per se.

I love your Draco icon. Tom Felton. :P

From daily_snitch. I just subscribed.

I think the professorial titles have to be fake (I mean, "Chair of Magi-Political Studies" and "Pirate Queen-in-Residence at the Royal Veela Institute"?!), but I do think it's possible that it's a real academic paper, perhaps for some sort of English literature, pop culture/Western civilization, or gender studies department.

Tom Felton is most definitely a hottie. But I'm already engaged to Dan Radclife, so he's yours if you want him!

Oh please God no. Very funny though. Certainly seems they had fun writing it. Love the icon too!
