Welcome, I hope you find yourself a new home here on dA in our realm of darkness. Anyone may join.
This group is for horror writers & appreciators of the darkness (we DO accept artwork also!)...We want nothing but you're best work, so please make sure it is before you submit it.
NOTICE: There is an explanation of the folders at the bottom of the gallery page! Please check to make sure your work applies to the appropriate folder.
I wish I didn't have to do this but apparently there are people that need this. There are limits to what we accept, content-wise.
1. No porn. What is porn? Spreading, erections, erotic bodily fluids (you know, semen and vanigal fluid), penetration...and shitting.
2. No racism. I wish I didn't have to define this, but racism is defined as demeaning one group over another. This can be unintentional, but sometimes it isn't. For example, you don't repeatedly refer to anyone from Africa as apes. People aren't animals. You are not genetically superior to another person. We're intelligent people regardless of slight 1% differences in our genetic makeup so get the fuck over it.
3. No sexism. I understand the stereotype of women being weaker than men and them being the stereotypical target...and in horror it's kind of unavoidable so I generally don't filter this that much. But when you're showing pictures of men or women repeatedly being murdered in the same way and eroticizing it...then we've got a problem.
4. No threats. Horror is quite threatening in itself. But do not under any circumstances threaten ANYONE. Fictional characters, I don't care about. Addressing the audience, the members of my group, that I and other administrators are responsible for, I won't fucking tolerate.
5. Say fuck as much as you want. I don't give a goddamned rat's ass about profanity so swear like a cunt-gargling sailor for all I care. We're adults on the Internet after all.
