Movie

Neil is a questioning high school freshman whose main social outlet is the steamy erotic fan fiction he writes about Vanguard, the brawny, galaxy-hopping hero of a popular sci-fi franchise. When Neil's stories are exposed in class he is mortified, but the effortlessly-cool Julia comes to his defense.

An erotic fan fic writer herself, Julia pushes Neil to publish his stories to an online "adult" forum, where they quickly grab the attention of the site moderator, Denis. When Neil is invited to present his work at a comic con live-read event, he must face the fact that Denis' interest in him may be more than simply professional... perhaps like his own feelings for Julia.

For a movie about proud outcasts, Slash is a little square.
