What is //?


The symbol "//" is used mostly in roleplaying forums to denote "slash," or roleplays containing male/male or female/female romantic pairings. In contrast, "straight" romantic roleplays are often denoted with two upright lines (||). The use of "//" was popularized on the Neopetsroleplaying board, where the use of the word "slash" and other synonyms (shounen-ai, yaoi, etc.) have been banned. However, as Neopets staff members have apparently begun to catch on to the meaning of "//," shutting down boards that advertise it, it is likely that this term, too, will soon be replaced by something more obscure.

common roleplaying board titles, particularly on Neopets:


// highschool

{modern fantasy}{//}{||}

See slash, shounen-ai, yaoi, ||

The two slash marks // when used in texting,short communications like Twitter, Facebook updates, and pictures represents loveor the love of someone or something.
