Great Tales “Don’t the great tales never end?” “They never end as tales” --J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King
No one wants the great tales, whether found in books, movies, or television shows, to end, and that is why many of us continue and expand on stories and worlds of authors who we know and love through fan fiction and fan art.
This is a community for writers and readers of non-slash, gen fan art and fiction to share their work, give feedback to one another, and discuss issues related to fan fiction and fan art. All fandoms are welcome, so if your fandom is not found in the description or the tags, please contact the moderators and we will add it. We hope this will be a fun place to share our love of fiction and fan art.
These are defined fairly broadly right now. They will be made more specific if the need arises.
1. Posts may deal with the production of fan fiction and fan art or the fandoms themselves. 2. Posts and comments may at times deal with mature issues, but those issues must be discussed in a language-free, under-age friendly way. 3. Please introduce your topic, and then put the body of your post under an lj-cut, so as not to clutter the journal page. 4. Posts must be properly tagged. In particular, be sure to tag the fandom(s) under discussion, and in the case of art or fic, an author tag (First time posters, please select "need tag!" and mods will create an author tag for you). 5. Posts and comments must be respectful. There is to be no bashing of other fandoms or fan works. You may thoughtfully criticize, but do so in a civilized manner.
Fan Art Posting
1. All fan art should be slash-free and safe for work. 2. Post art with this heading, and then put the art itself under an lj-cut:
1. This is a gen fic community. As such, while your work may include romance, hurt/comfort, angst, etc. that should not be the sole focus of the work. This is a judgment call, of course. If your fic furthers the “great tales” in some way, it should be fine. If you have a question about your fic, please contact the mods. 2. Fics rated up to and including R are allowed on this site, but gratuitous violence, language, or sexuality is not. That is to say, the elements of the story that necessitate the R rating must play an integral part in your story, and must not be the focus of your story. If your story is rated above PG, you must clearly indicate the rating, and the reason for the rating in your heading. 3. Explicit sex, whether slash or het, is not allowed. 4. No slash of any rating is allowed. 5. Please keep all content in your header (aka not behind a cut, or a hyperlink) PG or below. 6. Post all fiction with this heading, and put the text under an lj-cut:
