I can't tell the stars from the downtown lights

Darren Criss and Matt Lang talking about fanfic, ships, and slash.

    Darren Criss: I think one of the main things [that inspired AVPM] was the Hermione/Draco thing, that was probably one of the planning seeds, I think for—
    Matt Lang: Yea, yea. We always figured Draco had a crush on Hermione, and I guess that—I didn't know this, but apparently there's a whole community of—
    Interviewer: Yea, it's quite a popular ship in the fandom. There are a lot of fanfics about it.
    Darren: Oh we've, we've discovered.

    Darren: Ship, fanfic, or, um what else? Sla—slash?...
    Matt: I had no idea what a ship was.
    Darren: Yea. Yea, we always tell people, like, when they're, like— You know at first people were like, 'I ship Voldemort and Quirrel,' [we were] like, 'No, don't do that! You can't ship human beings, that's unhealthy.'
    Matt: Put 'em in a box on a boat. Like, watch out, Joe [Walker]!
    Darren: Yea, we were like, 'Joe, Brian [Rosenthal], don't get on any boats. If anyone tries to put you on a vessel, don't do it!'
    Matt: Somebody's gonna try to ship you somewhere.
    Darren: As well as these slash things! People were like, 'I'm gonna slash these guys!' but oh my god, that's even scarier than the boat! Stay away from, stay away from slashers!
