This forum was moved when the archive was made (or, quite a while after that, but when it got popular) because we thought that it would be nice to have a place to put general writing. We can post other fanfiction, original stories and poetry here, so it's in the off-topic because some of it is off-topic.

If the 2 charecters are gay, what age is appropriate for sex? Sorry, I wonder these things....

There's not an appropriate age on this forum, no matter what the sexual orientation. This is a children's forum, so no M and up stories are allowed.
Keep it T rated and under.

What does T stand for? Sorry about this, in Ireland we use the IFCO rating which goes like; G-General (the lowest one, kinda like Universal)
PG-Parental Guidance (Pretty staraitforwards)
12-Anyone 12 and over, or an under 12 with an adult
15-Anyone 15 and over, or an under 15 with an adult
16-Over 16's only
18-Over 18's only


Which one is T closest to? Also, another thing, I'm writng a fanfic with moderate violence (people get killed but I don't describe it) and moderate language (I mean not crap and hell, actual swears), but what should I rate it? or should I even post it at all, or is it too adult?

It depends on the swears. Excessive language counts as M. Not over-done violence is okay, but you'd have to filter out the swears.

Alright. I'll make sure to keep that out of my work, then. Thanks anyway.

The swears would be the s-word, p-word and b female insult. That O.K.?

No, please keep it clean, or change the words at the very least.
Made-up swears work too. D'arvit included.

What about: Ficumentary?

FanFic+Documentary

Where a FanFiction author does a 'documentary' on a person, group or race from a series of books.
(I'm planning one on the LEP, SAP (SubAustralia Police), UUSAPF (Under United States of America Police Force), and UAP (Under Asia Police)).

I made SAP, UUSAPF and UAP.

*Shudder* See, if I'd read this before venturing onto ff.net, I wouldn't have clicked that lemon...My poor innocent mind...
And I really wish I'd known what yaoi and yuri were too...
Great thread topic. Hopefully this will stop some people from learning it the way I did. *Eye twitch*

Can you have more than one story posted?

Yup. You can post as many stories as you want, as long as they follow the rules. :)
