A lot of people seem to be uncommon with the terminology and lingo of yaoi fangirls. That is why I will make this mini vocab list so you know what you're getting into before you find yourself in something..... interesting. Let's go!!
  • Yaoi - Encompasses every kind of male/male relationship, although generally leans towards the more sexual side of the scale.
  • BL - AKA Boy's Love. A term used for manga/anime/fanfiction with male/male sexual relationships.
  • Shonen-Ai - AKA Boy's Love (also), although this term is used to refer to non-sexual male/male romantic relationships.
  • Fandom - Commonly used all over the anime world. Fandom just means everything to do with the fans. AKA Fanbase
  • Pairing - Simply a couple.
  • Cannon - Official to the series.
  • Ship - 'to ship' is a verb which means to support a certain pairing of characters.
  • Crack Couple/Crack Pairing - A pairing that is shipped, but will never officially happen because it it either A) Near impossible B) A cross over couple or C) Just a bad idea.
  • 'X' - Often between two character names, there may be an 'X' this means that they are referring to the two characters mentioned as a couple. I.e. SasukeXSakura. Note: the 'X' may be replaced with a '/'
  • Slash - A fan-fiction of any sort that pairs two male or two female characters.
  • Doujinshi - A fan-fiction, but in the form of a published mini-manga or comic. Commonly found in the yaoi fandom.
  • Lemon - A fan-fiction depicting explicit sexual relations between two fictional characters.
  • Bara - Anime/manga with extreme sexual acts between big, hairy, and burly men. Intended for gay male readers.
