This asylum is for interested users to post and read fanfiction about characters from the Bourne franchise of books and movies. All pairings and all ratings are welcome, provided that they are appropriately labeled.
A few simple rules:
1) Cut tags. They are your dear friends. All fics longer than 100 words, and any fic with a rating higher than PG, need to be behind a tag. While all ratings are welcome here, no one wants to stumble across something more intense than what they were looking for, or have to scroll past your 40,000 word post-Ultimatum epic when they really just want a drabble to hold them over between classes.
2) Ratings and disclaimers. All headers should look something like this: Title, Rating, Pairing, Part Number/Number of Parts Total. I won't be too much of a stickler on the exact format, but please keep in mind that your header is helping your potential reader find their way to your fic.
The body of your post should likewise look something like this:
SPOILERS: (While we're dealing with a closed canon at this point, some people may be lagging behind on the DVDs, or they may be reading the books rather than watching the movies. Specificity helps.)
AUTHOR'S NOTES: This part is optional, but if you want to talk about your writing process, thank your beta, or give your audience any other miscellaneous info that doesn't fit anywhere else, this is where it goes.
3) While crossovers are welcome, every work of fiction must include a character from the books or movies (not necessarily Jason himself) in a starring role.
4) Play nicely with each other. This is a multi-pairing and multi-character comm which welcomes many different genres. If you see a fic that features a pairing or character that you don't like, just scroll on by. That one's easy. On the matter of constructive criticism, I'll only say this: you know when you're tearing down the author rather than talking about the fic. If you're in a situation that you feel is borderline, please ask the author how they feel about concrit first, or take it to email.
5) Since IJ is still very much considered the wild frontier of fandom, and Bourne is such a small fandom to begin with, I don't know how much of an impact this will have, but. If you post three or more fics in this comm, you will have the option to create an "Author: YourName" tag within the comm so that people will be able to find your fic more quickly.
