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. 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.
Somehow I lost a week there. Not sure what happened there. My apologies for my temporal difficulties.

Flash Fan Fiction Friday (4F)

Last time, we avoided 'be' with our "Not To Be" theme! Please check out our entry!

The Show Must Go On (L.A Noire 4F)Nice guys finished last.
Roy, traversing Hollywood as he did on a daily basis, could list many more unfortunate clichés like that which proved, in his experience, to be true. The bright-eyed Hollywood hopeful sucked the director's cock for a part. The "devoted housewife" fucked a guy ten years her junior behind her husband's back.
"Hey handsome, come back to bed," invited some floozy with a nice rack and long blonde hair. She dropped the sheet at her chest ever so slightly to reveal a nipple.
"Clean yourself up, and get out," Roy tossed over his shoulder as he shut his bedroom door behind himself.
Common men romanticized the polished of image of the gangster, presented to them by Hollywood to capitalize on the monotony of their lives. Crusty old men felt up little boys and girls who cried for their parents.
Roy couldn't keep the shit-eating grin off of his face, despite the loaded gun in front of it. Cole barely kept his anger at bay behind his Colt, and all the while wore his nic

This week, let's work on "Irregular Verbs"! Here is a list of irregular verbs:…

Choose at least three irregular verbs from the list and include them in your 4F. For an extra challenge, include more verbs (five or ten, more?). 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. :)

: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 Tumblr? Check out The YUNiversity:…

They have great grammar and writing tips. The front page is a bit crowded, but it's worth wading through.

I got a site(not owned by me) that needs active writers. Anything is welcome!

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 :)

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:

I'm sorry. I'm not sure what "4 day5 ???" means.

I'm replying to your comment you left on my group's profile page.… I didn't understand it.
