Basically, the Fanfiction rules are as follows.
No swearing unless there is a warning or you believe that it is badly needed. Regardless, please ask if you are not sure what to do when it comes to writing story that nees swearing.
Smut is allowed in some cases. For example, if you are working on a story With someone else and it involves a scene, then please put up a massive warning!! Remember, not everyone likes doing this and they might report it or something. It is also okay in a romance genre, just put a rating on it or a warning. Up to you.
There can be crossovers, just be careful. If you are wondering what crossovers are, for thosewho have never heard of it, they re when two or more fandoms join together.For example, 'Dragon Age/Skyrim' is a crossover. Let me know if you wanna find out more about it, comment or pm me.
No mary Sue's or whatever the male version is. It's not realistic. Give them flaws.
Do not, I repeat, do not use text speakin a story. Som people don't t know much text speak' so nothing makes no sense. You wouldn't get a good mark in an exam of you used it. Actully, you would get disqualified.
Space properly. Don't have everything in one big paragraph. You don't see speach mixed in with detail son it looks like this:
'Alistair held out his hand, and I quickly realized that he wanted me to shake it. I took it, and gave him a firm hand shake. "Congratulations on becoming the Hero of Fereldan." "Thank you, Alistair." The replied to his statement, '
It makes no sense. If it's like this:
'Alistair held out his hand, and I quickly realized that he wanted me to shake it. I took it, and gave him a firm hand shake. "Congratulations on becoming the Hero of Fereldan."
"Thank you, Alistair." The replied to his statement, '
Then it's fine. Also, if yo go onto a next line for speech but there is no gap, then that is also fine as it happens in the books.
Sorry for the rant just then, but I do ramble on sometimes. Now, we will go onto the whole fanfiction contest thing.,
The contest rules are the exact same as fanfiction and roleplay. However, there are some changes due to the name of the contest. After a few months and depending upon the popularity, the name will be changed to the Thedas Fanfiction Contest. If you want to find out more about it, just let me know and I'll respond ASAP. I don't want to give away too much, since this is a new thing.
