    In Jossverse Fanfiction.
    I've just started posting part 2 of my fan fic. Is it possible for you to alter the title?
    If so........it is THE NEW ANGEL INVESTIGATIONS pt 1
    I'd like it to be THE NEW ANGEL INVESTIGATIONS pts 1 & 2
    Thanks.
    Angel liked to sing 'Oh Mandy', using the Angelus method.

    Look at it, play with it, then torture it.

        Depends what you mean. A lot of the VS writers produce banners and avatars associated with their work, which are displayed within the body of their stories. So in that sense, yes, if you had a piece of artwork that was related to your fic you could display it within the same thread - but you would have to follow the rules of the fanart forum regarding the size of those images. Generally speaking, though, fanart belongs in the fanart section

          Would it be alright to post a collection of drabbles all together if they were written as a complete challenge?


          And I'm wondering if there's a rating limit on the fiction content one may post. I have a ficlet that has some adult language and implied sexual situations. Very dark and angsty as its from Buffy's POV during Season 6.

            I don't know that's there's a rating limit, but just be clear in the beginning of the thread what the fic will contain. If you're concerned, you could also put the particular bits into spoilers, but that's probably not necessary. So a simple Rating: PG, or R or M, or however you like, maybe coupled with Warning: adult language and implied sexual situations seems like it should be fine to me.

            If you mean drabbles in general, again, I think it's fine to post a collection of them together if they go together. But if it's for a challenge, send a PM to the challenge setter to be sure they will accept drabbles. If it's for Thomas' challenge, I seem to recall he'll accept any format, drabbles included. Hope that helps.

              Well it was more a Drabble Meme I did by request through my LiveJournal. So they all go together in my mind.
              And thanks!

                Yes, it's fine to post a collection of drabbles in that way, Emmie. Just to remind you, though, that linking to other forums is not permitted here.

                  Oh, sorry. I was just using it as an example of how I was hoping to post it here.

                    Small question, if I am posting a continuing fic, do I post all of the chapters in the same thread as I write them and make a note that it is a continuing story?

                      Yes, if you have a long ongoing story, then each new update is posted in the same thread - as you can see in this and this example.

                        Thanks! I figured that was how it was based on the rest of the forum but I wanted to be sure just in case

                          I'm not finding the challenges section. Is it removed? I see 2013 fanfiction, 2012 fanfiction the seasons fanfiction, and feedback.

                            Hello. Yes, sorry, the Challenges section has been removed as it had fallen into disuse. Thanks for reminding us that we need to check for and remove all out-of-date references!

                              I'm in the middle of writing an Angel sixth season, but it's in fanfiction format. Do I post it in this section, or the season rewrite one? I'm not going to write it like a transcript.

                                We don't have a season re-write forum. There is a virtual season sub-forum, but members are not allowed to just post there willy-nilly - please read the rules if you are interested in applying. In the meantime, your completed works should be posted in the 2013 Fanfiction forum.
