Neil (Michael Johnston, "Teen Wolf"), a high-school freshman in small-town Texas, has no idea where he lands on the sexuality spectrum, but at least he has an outlet: He covertly writes erotic stories, having imaginatively turned a famous science-fiction franchise icon into a polysexual adventurer. Upon discovering his secret, all his fellow classmates further ostracize the shy teen—all but Julia (Hannah Marks, "Awkward."), who, impressed with his imagination, becomes Neil's mentor and introduces him to the online world of slash—erotic fan fiction between preexisting characters, usually of the same sex—and leads him to an adults-only website called the Rabbit's Hole. As the two teens' worlds (real and imagined) change with their evolving identities, and Neil contends with the sexual advances of the Rabbit's Hole's editor (Michael Ian Black, Wet Hot American Summer), they prepare for an upcoming convention in Houston, a place where they will be sure to find acceptance. Slash's power is in its love for its characters, keeping the narrative grounded and empathetic in its portrayal of erotic fantasies and sexual anxieties and respecting the internet subculture it represents.
