New Category and Warning

Hi EF,

The written word is powerful, even transformative. It can also be extremely cathartic for creators who need a place to channel their feelings about current events into something constructive. With so much civil and political unrest occurring globally, we decided we would be remiss if we didn’t accommodate space on our archive for authors to express themselves.

We also understand that, for many, fanfiction is a point of escape from real-world anxiety and stress, and stumbling onto a fic with overtly political themes might be triggering. As a reader-first archive, our foremost concern is to promote an environment where readers can curate their ideal reading experience without worrying about stumbling into a story that causes stress or upset.

As such, we have created a category for Political/Protest, with the following definition: Stories with political or social...

Event Announcement: Mystery Challenge Month 2022

That’s right folks, we’re running this again––but with a couple of changes from last year. 

If you weren’t around last year, or need a refresher, here’s the crux:

For the entire month of July (with a little spill over into August), participants will be writing fics that are five chapters long. Each chapter must respond in some way to a given prompt, and the fics must be complete at five chapters––no longer, no shorter––with said chapters posted within the relevant time windows (detailed below). 

Your fic can be a sequel to a mystery fic you wrote for last year’s event, but it doesn’t have to be. The only requirement, beyond what we mentioned above, is that it be a brand new fic, not an existing WIP, and written specifically for this event.

Last year, each Mod provided a different prompt, but this time, we are crowdsourcing prompts from you guys to allow Mods an opportunity to take part without giving us an unfair advantage.
