Obligatory Opening Post ^_^
Genfic: Fanfiction that contains either no intimate relationships between characters, or where such a relationship is not the main focus. Also known as friendship-fic. Please note that the only thing ruled out here is relationships. A story about SOLDIER is harldy complete without a good fight. That's fine. I guess what I'm trying to say is this is a place to post plot-centric fic, not smut-centered. There are plenty of other communities out there for that.
Please feel free to post anything that fits that criteria, whether or not it is fanfiction. Icons, AMVs, art, etc. are just as welcome, encouraged, in fact! Post away! ^_^
Before you do, though, please take a few moments to read over these guidelines to help make everyone's experience here as pleasant as possible.
1) Keep it FFVII-related. This includes compilations (Dirge of Cerberus, Crisis Core, Before Crisis, Advent Children).
2) LJ-cuts: Images go behind a cut, please. Icon posts can have a few (no more than 4) teasers outside of it, but the bulk has to be LJ-cut. Fanfiction should have the header outside the cut, everything else behind.
3) Label posts appropriately; especially the 'warnings'. They're supposed to be there for a reason.
4) Abuse of other members will NOT be tolerated. At all. Period. You will get one, and I mean one warning. Do it again and you will be removed. If you don't like what someone writes, don't read it. Plain and simple.
5) Have fun! (Yes, it's a rule!) ~_^
Basic Header for Fanfic:
Subject: Fic: Title (part / of) rating
ex.: Fic: Silver Sunshine (1/1) PG13
Notes: (If any)
Please enter tags when you post. Minimum, your username and the type of media. This is to help newcomers to find your posts. You want them to be able to find your masterpiece three months from now, don't you? ^_^
For example: If I was going to post the above example story (assume it's about Sephiroth), my tag-line might look something like this: [fic, rabid_plotbunny, sephiroth] That way, it can be found by people browsing for fic, or looking for my stuff specifically, or anything to do with Sephiroth.
Well, I think that's it. Feel free to post a comment here if you have any questions! ~_^
