This is a BandFic fandom. Its existence as a documented community begins in June 2003 when the first Canadian Idol-related slash story was posted. Material for this fandom can be found several places on the Internet including FanDomination.Net, but is specifically located at Livejournal's ci_slash. [1] While it is generally accepted that there is not an off-line convention related to this community, many of the members have travelled together to various Canadian Idol events.

The Canadian Idol fiction community has gone through similar arguments experienced by other fandoms (author/character bashing, the definition of constructive critiscm, flaming, etc). ci_slash has adopted the "if you can't say anything nice don't say anything at all" strategy, and involved members of kerfluffles have mostly appeared to leave arguments behind.
