I'm wondering why it's so different. HP feels more fictional, less immediate, less hot to me. (Yeah, I'm reading smut.) The writing is just as good, but it's different somehow. I think it goes beyond the fact that I've got much clearer visuals in my mind to work with as far as Lotrips goes.
I'm curious. Are there any other people who read RPS/media and literary slash? What kind of differences have you noticed in the writing? Particularly does the level of sexiness feel different between the fandoms?
