The T*M Slash-O-Meter

. . . a scientific method which helps us gauge the T*M slashiness of each episode!

Rating System:

1/ - Minimal, if any, T*M Interaction

2/’s –Some T*M Interaction; a scene or two together with others in the frame

3/’s – Average T*M Interaction; working together on a problem in a minimum fashion

4/’s – Above average T*M Interaction; working together on a problem. This rating suggests strong friendship bonds being forged; often results in “missing scene” fanfic not involving sex.

5/s – Extremely slashy T*M Interaction: going on shore leave together; facing a life or death situation together. This rating encourages “missing scene” fanfic involving lots of hot sex.
