    Regarding Fan Fiction

    I'm sorry, but WF is not a place to post fan fiction (we only allow original work here). But one site that will is: Welcomes most types.

    Previously posted by pgoroncy:
    “The reason it has always been rejected is because of the threat of legal action against WF. If a lawsuit were ever brought against the site you can be sure the site would close shortly after. The risk in other words is simply too great to justify making this a part of WF."

    Based on:
    Fan fiction (also commonly spelled as fanfiction and frequently abbreviated to fanfic or occasionally just FF or fic) is a broadly-defined term for fiction about characters or settings written by fans of the original work, rather than by the original creators.

    Admin Note: The rules have since been updated and fan fiction can now be shared in restricted areas of the forum

    Da Rules
    Fan-Creations: Fan-fiction and Fan-art are treated equally under the law as fan-creations; they are potential breaches of copyright and/or trademark provisions, therefore not allowed on the open forum boards, and will be removed immediately upon discovery. Provision has been made for fan-creations within The Motley Tavern, where adequate visibility limits and disclaimers are included.

    Fan-creations posted by non-Tavern members anywhere in the open forum or members only Workshops may be moved to The Motley Tavern at a moderator's discretion. Members may still post fan-creations in their own Blog pages or in Groups which allow them but do so at their own risk with respect to any third party legal actions.

    How To Get Critiques On Your Work: WF is very much a give and take community, meaning the best way to get constructive critiques and comments on your work is to give them to others.
