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.

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.
Flash Fan Fiction Friday (4F)

Last week, we explored how "Opposites Attract". Please take a moment and check out our submissions!

Unexplainable AttractionDisclaimer: I do not own Final Fantasy X. I make no profit from this work of fiction.

Staring into the darkness, she waited. Staring out over the ocean, Lulu could not help but smirk. She had never thought of herself as the maiden waiting at the seashore for her sailor to come home to her. She was a warrior, a dark mage, and one of the guardians of a Summoner. But even warriors had their weaknesses. He was hers.
Feet crunched the gravel behind her, and she relaxed into the arms that wrapped around her, leaning into the warm chest behind her. “You know, Chappu really loved you with all his heart.” His chin rested on her shoulder, allowing her to feel his breath on her ear as he spoke.
“I know, Wakka.” She sighed, stepping forward and turning, a small space separating them as a chill breeze blew in from the ocean. “I loved him also.” Lulu stepped toward him, reaching out and caressing his cheek gently. “But my heart has ro

“Rodimus, what are you doing?”
“Nothing.”
“Why are you currently attached to my arm?”
“Because.”
“…let go.”
“No.”
“Why not?”
“Because we’re opposites, Mags.” Ultra Magnus’ usual frown deepened in response to the huge grin he was being subjected to. “We attract each other.”
 “Remove yourself before you compel me to use force.”
“Aw, Magnus! You’re no fun!” Rodimus pouted while Ultra Magnus walked away. He waited until the other mech had cleared the corner before turning to Drift. “How long was that?”
“2.3 klicks”
Thankless (L.A. Noire 4F)It's ten forty-five at night, and Elsa is on break.
Cole's fingers shake slightly as he flips open his lighter. She steadies his hand. Placing her cigarette in her mouth, she lowers it toward the flame. The pack wavers in her hand as he takes one.
Leaning back on the stairwell's safety bar, he takes a liberal puff. His suit is rumpled, and his chest rises and falls hard. "You'll be seeing more of me," he begins softly, "I've been promoted to Vice."
She smirks. "I'll be on my best behavior."
His smile does not meet his eyes. "The Dahlia Killer, he won't bother you."
At the slight catch in his voice, Elsa drops her cigarette to stamp it out. She throws one arm about his shoulders. His knees buckle, bringing the two of them down. Cole's cigarette falls out of his hand as he buries his head in her shoulder, drinking heavily the smell of her perfume.
Elsa kisses the side of his head and neck. She can smell the odors of his cologne, and alcohol. Cole hiccups, his body jerking against hers.

Let's try something a bit different (and perhaps challenging) next. This week, our theme is an "Alphabet Challenge"! Write your first paragraph as normal. Take note of what letter it starts with. The next paragraph begins with the next letter in the alphabet. Each sequential paragraphs start with the following letters, in alphabetical order. For example, if your story begins with the letter D, the second paragraph will start with E, the third with F, the fourth G, then H, and so on. And have fun!

:star: Contests :star:

None currently. Feel free to let us know if there's a contest you'd like us to include in our journal. :)

:bulletgreen: We now have a chat room! Come over to #LitFanFic and hang out a bit! SingingFlames tries to hop in there whenever she's on. :)

:typerhappy: Guidelines :typerhappy:

:bulletblue: 300 or 500 word count limit. If you really want to challenge yourself, try a 100 word 4F.

:bulletblue: You have until next Friday to submit your 4F.

:bulletblue: Include the theme in your 4F.

:bulletblue: Post a link to your 4F in the current Flash Fan Fiction Friday journal. When the next one is announced, I'll feature them. As of right now, there is no limit to how many you can submit (but I will only feature one per person).

:bulletblue: Submit your 4Fs to the gallery folder named "Flash Fan Fiction Friday," located at the bottom of the folder list. These submissions won't be as highly monitored as regular submissions, since you only have a week to work on them. However, grammar and spelling do still count.

:la: Did You Know? :la:

Have you heard about Amazon Worlds? It is a new feature offered by Amazon that allows authors to electronically publish and sell fan fiction stories. There are, of course, limitations to this service.

Amazon Worlds is only available for select franchises: Gossip Girl, Pretty Little Liars, The Vampire Diaries, Archer & Armstrong, Bloodshot, Harbinger, Shadowman, X-O Manowar, Hugh Howey's Silo Saga, Barry Eisler's John Rain novels, Blake Crouch's Wayward Pines series, and The Foreworld Saga (by Neal Stephenson, Greg Bear, Mark Teppo, Eric Bear, Joseph Brassey, Nicole Galland, and Cooper Moo), with more on the way.

There are also potential downsides to Amazon Worlds. The main legal concern is the that once you post any content in Amazon Worlds, the original franchise owners gain "a license to use your new elements and incorporate them into other works without further compensation to you." So, any unique ideas you publish, they can use without paying you anything.

What are the chances of Warner Brothers or Valiant Entertainment (or the others) doing this? Probably unlikely, but it's out there.

Another concern raised is whether the fan fiction community, which has thousands if not millions of free stories to pick from online, is willing to pay for something they can find elsewhere?

It remains an interesting option to explore, for those who write in the franchises available. Only time will tell if it is a successful venture for authors and Amazon.

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. :)

I have to ask, in the Hetalia: Axis Powers fandom it is canon for the male characters to have a female counterpart, so is it alright for me to submit a series where the main character is a fem!character? And are X Readers allowed in this group?

Hi! Sorry for the delay in replying! That should be fine, as long as your OC is not written in to replace an existing canon female counterpart. :)

Reader inserts are allowed as long as they don't have "fill in the blank" sections, for example (name), (e/c), (f/n), etc.
