Deviants

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

Come visit our new chat room! #LitFanFic




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 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. Remember, if you know any great fan fictions, feel free to recommend them to me, SingingFlames! :)

: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.

“I'm so booored!” Michelangelo cried out melodramatically. “Raphie, entertain me!” he demanded, whining loudly as he clung tightly to his brother's left biceps.

To become a man, a boy had to put down his toy sword, and pick up the true effigy. To accomplish that, he had to realize the world was not divided into black and white. He had to find his dragon to slay. Once all was fulfilled, the man would become the hero, the dragon the villain, thus solidifying the black and white world for new little boys.
It was the murder of Gilroy Donne that had designated James Donnelly's monster. In the calm, quiet lake in which he had played as a child, Gilroy's remains were uncovered from beneath an overturned boat, his throat slit. His empty seat in Donnelly's classroom became a shrine to the loss of human innocence. No cared about the kids who weren't as well off. James left the empty chair behind to accompany his father to the textile mill that following spring.

“Gurgi loves the spring time.” Taran turned slightly, looking up into the branches of the tree he'd been leaning against. Leaves rustled above him, and occasional snippets of the furry forest creature’s voice made their way down to him. “Gurgi loves fresh crunchings.”
The sound of scampering feet across the branches made Taran smile as he shook his head. He’d become accustomed to Gurgi’s strange acts over the last few months, despite being annoyed on occasion by the demand for attention at odd hours. “Gurgi waiting for munchings to grow. Gurgi pluck crunchings from tree.” Leaning back, Taran just grinned.

Purple prose is any narrative voice that is overflowing with excessive detail, so much so that it distracts the reader from the rest of the story. While some description is necessary and desired, you don't want to bore or sidetrack your reader from your work.

Hello!


I have been joining quite a few fanfic related groups because I write fanfiction and would like to improve my writing.



I am wondering, do you accept Alternate Universe stories? I know you said things about canon stories but Naruto's canon is pretty flawed in Part 2, even more so towards the end. Even if AU stories are not allowed, I can just stick to Part 1 for the most part or even do events that were partly shown, or only mentioned in Naruto without having to worry about Part 2.

Hi! :D

We do accept AUs, as long as they are at least somewhat canonically plausible (for instance, a future story where some key event has happened and changed the storyline). However, My Little Pony-ized versions of Star Wars characters wouldn't fall under any form of "plausible". If an author can justify how their AU could conceivably happen in their franchise's canon, and do it without relying on random acts of author intervention (i.e. they fell through a portal and "poof" things are different), then it should be fine.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any more questions. :)

Thanks, it helped!


And your examples are great too! :)


Just wondering, are you a fan of My Little Pony? And what is your reaction to seeing Pony-ized characters on this site? Just wondering since I just find that kind of stuff weird. Though I don't comment and be a jerk, that'd be plain rude.


I have only one true fanfic on this site so far. Here's the link to it-


1st-hashirama-senju.deviantart…


Would it be acceptable to submit it to the group? Basically, I made it due to my feelings about the War arc and ending of the second part of the Naruto series. And Neji Hyūga is in the story too.

I'm glad it helped! :)

I actually am a MLP fan, although I'm a season or two behind on it. I find it fairly humorous and light-hearted. I love the art style as well. Overall, it cheers me up. :) As for the pony-ized art/characters on the site, I find some of them quite creative. Translating one art style into a radically different one is not easy. I've seen quite a few Transformers (my main fandom) successfully converted into a pony, and I recognize instantly who it's meant to be. That takes a fair amount of talent.

My main concern with pony-ized characters being used in fan fiction (at least the ones submitted here) is the logic behind it. One of our main goals for our galleries, besides having quality works, is to keep the stories canon or canonically possible. AUs that physically change the characters into different forms tend to fall outside of that plausibility umbrella.

Right now, I currently have a few other stories waiting to be reviewed. Before I could look at that one, I'd need to clear the ones before it. You can certainly submit it to the group now and I'll look as soon as I can. :)

Hi there! I just joined your group and was wondering where I should submit my fan fiction. I've been writing an Adventure Time story but each page has a different title. I mean each chapter has the same name but each individual page is different. For example the title of my first page is "Fiolee, page 1" but the then the next page is "Marshall, (Fiolee, Page 2)"

Then each chapter has a different name as well. So I'm not sure under which folder to submit it too. Should I just submit then under A for Adventure Time or change folders each time? 

Sorry if that's confusing

All stories should be submitted under their franchise title, in the case of your example, Adventure Time. :)

Hi! Is it original fiction or fan fiction? This group is a fan fiction group and only excepts fan fiction. The folders are alphabetized by franchise titles. Find the folder that has the correct first letter for the franchise and submit it there. :)
