This group is for sharing fan art and fan fiction that is not infested with batshit. (That's right, this group is FOR something, not AGAINST... O.o)
Fan artists who do not focus on Mary Sues, shipping obsession and drama are a rare breed. They rarely get attention in fandom specific groups because they are full of batshit insane fangirls that only cheer for 'smecksi' crap, yaoi or their own/their bff's OC.
This group is for fans who love their fandoms for what they are, not what a perverted teenage mind wishes they would be.
Submission Rules & Guidelines
Detailed version: keepyourbatshit.deviantart.com…
What can I submit to this group? What not?
~ You must be the creator of the deviation; any medium is acceptable. (No screenshots, googled pics,...)
~ This group does NOT accept fan art or fan fiction focussed on romance/shipping/pairings. It is acceptable if your work includes a couple, but it can not be the focus.
~ This group does NOT accept batshit insane fetish fan art. Examples would be yaoi/yuri, anthro and genderbender versions of canon characters, BDSM, vore, guro and such.
Homosexual characters are acceptable if they are homosexual in canon.
Example: Willow & Tara from Buffy are really a lesbian couple and will be accepted. Harry Potter & Draco Malfoy are not really a gay couple and will not be accepted.
Quick reminder: Work focussed on love/romance isn't welcome anyway, regardless of the couple's orientation/gender.
~ Original/Fan Characters are allowed, naturally, unless they are Mary Sues or Gary Stues. It is quite normal that canon characters meet a new person, but it is really really rare they meet TEH MOST BEUTIFUL GURL IN DA WORLD who has MOAR SUPAPOWARS than all canon characters combined and saves the world/galaxy/everything.
In doubt, TVTropes: tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php…
Please also make sure it's clear to what fandom the OC belongs.
~ The main focus of this group is 'western' fandoms, meaning no typical anime/manga. Fan art about non-western live action, novels or games is welcome.
