Group Info

Fan fiction is literature too, and this group is for authors who treat their stories seriously. This group gathers quality fan fiction together in one place, including the fanfic Daily Deviations. Our purpose is to be the place deviants come to when they want to find a well-written fanfic, post their own, and give and receive thoughtful comments and critiques.

Rules and Guidelines

Welcome to LiteraryFanFiction!

We are the gathering place for quality fan fiction. Our goal is to raise awareness of quality fan fiction and to improve the community's overall opinion of it. Fan fiction suffers from a stigma that it is poorly written, plotted, full of poorly developed characters, and basically that it is "bad writing." We wish to show the community that we are serious writers and we take our fiction seriously. This is not to say "bad fan fiction" doesn't exist - it does - but there are numerous well written fanfics out there as well. We want the community to see how wonderful our chosen medium can be. We wish to share with the community the all great fanfics available.

Please feel free to look around and enjoy! :D

Rules & Guidelines

Since we are striving for quality fan fictions, we have strict guidelines for submissions.

:bulletgreen: Fan Fiction - This is a fan fiction group. Your submission must be fan fiction (or tutorial/community information - like contests - applicable to fan fiction and submitted to the 'Tutorials, Informative, Contest Info' folder) in the English language, as we are not qualified to judge literary standards in other languages.

:bulletgreen: Format - Please submit only pieces that are narrative prose (stories), poetry, or non-narrative prose about writing or fanfiction. Prose should not contain in-line citations, excessive footnotes, or "fill in the blank" passages.

:bulletgreen: Grammar, Spelling, Punctuation - Please make sure your fic is well-edited before submitting. A typo can be overlooked, but a fanfic that's full of errors is just sloppy. This includes punctuation of dialog.

:bulletgreen: Gallery Folders - Submit to the proper folder. Each folder has 'Fandoms' and then letters listed after it. Those letters are for the first letter of your fan fiction's series title. Do not use articles (a, an, the) when alphabetizing your series. (Ex. - The Dresden Files would go under D, for Dresden, not T.)

:bulletgreen: Crossovers - Crossovers are allowed, if the story premise is possible (please nothing wild, like humanized My Little Ponies traipsing around with sparkling vampires). Please submit crossovers under the fandom name the main POV character belongs to. Example: in a Superman/X-Men crossover, if the fanfic is told from Wolverine's POV, submit the story into the "Fandoms V, W, X, Y, Z" gallery because Wolverine is from the X-Men franchise.

:bulletgreen: Featured Folder - The Featured folder is reserved for the Fan Fiction Daily Deviations, and other DDs related to fan fiction.

:bulletgreen: Canon - To avoid reader confusion, stories should remain canon or, at least, canonically possible (something that is conceivable in that fandom). :new: Stories that contradict canon are at risk of being declined. Be prepared to defend anything that isn't, or may not be, canon.

:bulletgreen: Romantic Relationships - Please keep all relations in your fanfic canon or canonically possible (i.e. the 'other' person in a romantic triangle). We accept all orientations, as long as it's canon. Don't change a character's sexual orientation to 'fit' your pairing.

:bulletgreen: Original Characters - OCs are allowed, but canon characters must also be present or be set in an immediately recognizable setting (i.e. having your OC wizard students attending Hogwarts is fine, however, an OC wizard with a wand and no recognizable locales or spells being used is not enough).

:bulletgreen: Continuity - please submit chapters in order. We reserve the right to decline chapters of a work if all previous chapters have not been accepted into our gallery.

:bulletgreen: Submission Limit - At the moment, submissions are limited to two a week. This may change as the group grows.

:bulletgreen: When posting a new story, please submit only the first chapter. After that one is approved, you may post new chapters at your leisure within the submission limits.

:new: Mature Content - While you are allowed to submit mature content and works with ideologically sensitive material, admins are not required to read or act on things that make them uncomfortable. We thank you for your patience.

:bulletgreen: Flash Fan Fiction Friday - If your Flash Fan Fiction Friday entry would put you over the week's limit, please tell us this in your comment on the entry when you link us the story, and hold off on submitting it to the group gallery.

Reasons Why a Submission Might Be Declined

:bulletred: Mary Sues - Mary Sues/Gary Stus are overly perfect characters with little to no flaws, and they outshine the main cast.

:bulletred: Grammar, Spelling, Punctuation - Please, please, please edit your stories. An occasional typo happens to everyone, but basic grammar rules need to be understood and followed. Fics with multiple errors will be declined, as will fics with "fill in the blank" sections.

:bulletred: dA Rules and Guidelines - No submission that breaks dA submission policies will be accepted. Please don't argue with me about the rules. It's dA's site, it's their rules. If it's mature, tag it. FAQ #554: Is my deviation Mature Content? FAQ #251: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic literature'; what do you consider this to be? Repeated attempts to submit works that flagrantly violate dA's rules on pornographic content will result in being banned from the group. :(

:bulletred: Quality - 'Quality' is a very subjective term, but your fic should be well organized, interesting and easy to understand.

:bulletred: OC x Canon - All relationships should be canon, or at least conceivable in that fandom. For this reason, we don't accept OC x Canon fics if that Canon character is in an established relationship. Any OC x Canon relationship must be conceivable (i.e. it is believable, even expected, for Captain James T. Kirk to have numerous "flings" with pretty much any female around).

:bulletred: Wrong Gallery - Deviations submitted to the wrong gallery, or not labeled so we can tell what fandom they belong to, will be declined. We want our galleries easy to navigate.

:bulletred: Plot - Have one.

:bulletred: Implausible Crossovers - As mentioned in the crossover rule above, any crossovers have to make sense and be conceivable. No human!Ponies with sparkling vampires (I haven't seen that, but I'm sure it's out there).

:bulletred: Moderator Discretion - This is similar to the 'Quality' issue listed above. Sometimes - for varying reasons - a story may not quite fit inside our guidelines. For that reason, we rely on Moderator discretion. Our Moderators have to right to refuse any story as necessary.

:bulletred: "Submit and Run" Members - Please do not join our group long enough to submit, and then leave the group.

:bulletpurple: Special Note - There are so many fandoms out there, it's impossible to be familiar with each one. We will do our best to insure all the fanfics here are canon (or canonically possible), but if you find one that is not, please note the group so we can investigate it.

As we are still new, these rules are subject to change. Any major changes will be announced in a blog. If you have any questions, please send us a note.
Flash Fan Fiction Friday (4F)

Last time, we celebrate "Halloween"! Please take a moment to read our submissions!

Skin (L.A. Noire 4F)It was a nice suit, that first one. After wearing a uniform as a policeman, and before that as a Marine, it felt slightly more human in its way to go to work as a man in his own clothing.
With a smile, Marie adjusted his tie. "Hurry back," she whispered with a peck on the lips.
The suit had taken a few nicks from falling plaster and a grazing bullet on Bishop's set. Covered in dust, Cole thought he looked a sight. It was time to retire it.
So then came Homicide, and the driving into the dark underbelly of Los Angeles. Cole, in a sort of gallows humor, thought of himself as the Grim Reaper, drifting over graves in his dark suit.
Splattered with Garrett's blood, Cole stood in disbelief at Donnelly's quick reassurance of "Go home, and celebrate with your wife."
Rusty's cigarette smoke coiled underneath the church overhang. "Come on, we'll get a drink."
"I'm not dressed for the occasion," Cole replied with a clear sense of irritation.
Rusty's chuckled. "I'll think you look better than most
Trick or Treat (4F)Rating: PG
Disclaimer: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and all related characters belong to Nickelodeon.
Summary: 'Haunted houses sit atop every corner and jack-o-lanterns abound.' For the first time, 9 year old Mikey is topside for Halloween but he and his brothers were meant to stick together. 2k12 'verse. 500 words exactly. Thoughts, comments and concrit welcomed.
Written for Flash Fan Fiction Friday 30 October '15 at LiteraryFanFiction
This week's challenge is 'Halloween. If it could be tied to Halloween, it could be used.
Trick or Treat
Nine year old Michelangelo races through the crowded, noisy side-walks as excitement pervades the air. The sun's barely reached the horizon, yet bright Autumn colours and glowing lights fill the streets. Haunted houses sit atop every corner and jack-o-

This week, let's tackle some commonly misused words, specifically "All ready vs. Already". Include both sets, used correctly, in your 4F. Here are some hints on using them, from Grammar Girl (… ):

“All ready” as two words means “prepared” (3), as in “The cookies are all ready to be eaten.” Again, you can separate the two words and the sentence still makes sense: “All the cookies are ready to be eaten.”

While “all ready” as two words connotes preparedness, “already” as one word is concerned with time; it means “previously,” as in “I can’t believe you ate the cookies already.” As with “altogether” as one word, you can’t do the separation trick. You can’t say, “I can’t believe you ate all the cookies ready.” That doesn’t make sense.

Enjoy yourselves!

Hi, I am new to deviant art so I don't know how most stuff works hehe ^^" I have just uploaded a fanfic of mine and I don't know how to submit it. And I am not even sure if it deserves to be submitted here >.> please check it if you can ^^
Leenaofdarkness Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I got a site(not owned by me) that needs active writers. Anything is welcome!
ParisWriter Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Just had a submission actually time out for the first time ever in this group, despite the weekly Flash Fiction prompts still going up on time. (Does anyone even participate in those? Just curious.) I know you said you've been busy lately... but since you're running this group on your own, might I suggest hiring some help? I'm sure I'm not the only person who has had/will have this issue.
SingingFlames Featured By Owner Jun 26, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
My apologies about the submission expiration. I reviewed the story and requested it for the group. As for the prompts, we have a few people who regularly participate in them, although they don't all always participate each week. I used to have a Co-Admin, but real life called her away and I have not had a chance to find someone else to help out. Please accept my apologies for the delay and the submission expiration.

Pardon me, but I have a deviantion submission which is pending for almost four weeks, and I was wondering if it is either due to the large amount of submissions or that my deviantion does not meet the standards of the group. Could anyone kindly clarify this for me, please?
SingingFlames Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2015  Hobbyist Writer

My apologies on the delay on your submission. I have been uncommonly busy in real life and am trying to catch up on the submissions. I just approved your story 'The Patient'. Was that the one in question? I will look for another, as well, just in case it was not. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Thank you!
SingingFlames :)
Madremonte Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2015  Student General Artist
I see, hopefully will it all be sorted out for you. And yes, 'His Patient' was the deviantion in question, but thank you for the approval. :aww:
