The technical definition of slash is:
A type of fic, often written by women, involving romantic or sexual involvement between two characters of the same gender. The term originates from early Star Trek fandom, namely "Kirk/Spock" stories -- the term "slash" comes from the slash (/) placed between the names of the characters involved. Also called alternative fiction in Xena ficdom. Pure sweet fluffy romantic slash is sometimes called mook. Powerfully emotional male/male relationships with no sexual element are sometimes called smarm. Also, as slash is traditionally about male characters, F/F stories are often called femmeslash.

Oooh ... that makes things a bit more clearer now, LOL...
So that would make what I wanted to do with my characters "Smarm" (what a horrid word!) - in that it's 'powerfully emotional', but they won't actually have sex or anything like that... Although I wouldn't have minded a "near kiss"
