    Thanks for the response; I'll ask Darren, then. Sucks to think that people even used fanfic as a means to screw up GW. WTF is it with some people? /rhetorical

    I'm just going to throw a link out there, because I have to go and do work I actually get paid for and I'm running behind... but give this a read and see if you recognize any of these in your own writing or in stuff you've read. It gave me the urge to go back over my own past work, cringing in dread of what I might find there. (No, I haven't yet succumbed - er - found time yet to act on that urge. But I will.)

    Eh. It's all in delivery and moderation. It's just more TV tropes and tropes themselves are neither goo nor bad.

    Is the fanfic only of Stargate or can it be of other things?

    Originally the idea was Stargate fic only. but people have posted fic for other shows. they either do it in the folder for that show or the off topic area.

    The best way to do it is to post your fic on another site, like fanfiction.net, and then link back here. We're not an archive so there are character limits on posts and if hte forum crashes and you lose your fic....you lose your fic.

    So yes, it can be other shows...but it does need to adhere to the 'keep it pg' and 'no slash' rules for the fanfic area.

    I am new to the site.. so sorry if i am posting this in the wrong section.. But i have just recently decided i want to start a new StarGate fan fic. Hopefully as big as Horizon is i can get enough people behind the project. I have a friend that is working on some graphics for this project as soon as i tell him what is needed. I do have a general idea for a story, but i would like to get atleast 4 to 5 others writers and get a good team set up, so we can all alternate on writing episodes.

    If anyone is interested let me know and we can begin the brain storming process. I don't want to start this until at least half a season can be planned

    Hey, Sky, is there a way to browse the archive, or is it only searchable?

    Here's the rules guys:

    PG-13 or lower fic is fine to link to.
    R or M Rated or higher is not although you can link to an author's main page just not directly to the fic. (preferably a page that has the full content warnings so that readers know exactly what they're getting into)
    For slash fic of all ratings you can link to the author's page, just not directly to the fic.

    Wincest and other incest fic of any rating is forbidden.
    Real person fic of any rating is forbidden.

    I'm wondering what the ratings for each of my fics would be.

    Burn It All Away is probably the worst, as it has an Aztec-like cutlure (no offense to Aztecs, but...messy).

    Whiskey Tango Foxtrot has one instance that can be considered extreme violence. Everything else is pretty much as 'bad' as stargate got after showtime dropped it.

    Mahood has violence, and I'm not sure if it crosses the line to R.

    I want to label these corectly without having to warn people about EVERYTHING (Warning: mention of a banana in case people are afraid of those)

    @WraithRichard

    Here's a general guide to the going ratings as explained for movies but applicable for fanfic too, just swap film for the written word: Guide To Movie Ratings

    Depending on the messy with regards to the Aztec culture, i.e. human sacrifice, you'll have to go with R for extreme violence, even if the rest is PG-13/T(eens). Same with WTF -- extreme violence always classifies as an R-rating, even if the rest fits in with a PG-13 rating. You could classify it as PG-13 and warn for the extreme violence bit in advance -- it's always good form to mention that.
    Manhood could be rated R because of the violence, but if it's nothing extreme, you'd be okay with an NC-17 rating (not for sexual content but (mild) violence).

    I have one R-rated fanfic f.e. because I have scenes with graphical violence and one suicide attempt. There's no way I'm going to rate that as PG-13 and then warn for the violence and the suicide attempt. It's R with the proper trigger warnings.

    Thank you Falcon, that clears things up. I'll put 'PG-13, with an R scene' for now.

    How much does one have to create to make their own thread?

    You can create your own thread even if you have only 1 creation to show.
