Reminder One: The "Original Work" folder is for work that is not part of a fandom
. Exceptions can be made for cameos, but please make certain there is something in your submission that makes it clear you're doing this. An excerpt or world map for that novel you're trying to publish would go here, for instance, but not fanfiction. Or you could add that world map to the "pet theories and prompts" folder instead, as suggested by my previous journal.
The "Fan Art--OC" (here "art" refers to both the written word and visual arts alike) is for your creations within a fandom
--e.g. your own personal My Little Pony made to fit whichever version of the story you follow, be it found in canon, Shadows of Equestria, or whatever else, or your "what if" Sonic the Hedgehog story... these works of your own creation, not part of official canon, but they are
tied to the fandom in some way.
And that leaves "Fan Art--Canon" as fanart and fanfics focusing on canon characters.
Reminder Two: New jobs (yes, that's a plural, hopefully soon that will translate to a larger bank account) plus the recent holiday rush, plus trying to work on my own stuff means my time on this site will be sporadic for a while.
Like it wasn't sporadic already.
Anyway, what I mean is, I realize that I have very few members as yet, and fewer still admins, but those who are already part of this group don't need to wait for me to vote your deviations in. I've set permissions that way for a reason--if you're part of my group and you've got something you really want to include, go ahead and okay it yourself! And if for some reason you can't... let me know. Otherwise, the expiration period for submissions ought to be really long, so if I don't get to your deviation right away, and you don't or can't vote it in yourself, I should have plenty of time to take care of it.
Reminder Three: I don't often go out looking for things to add to this group. Not yet. If something catches my eye that I want to include, certainly I'll request it, especially if it's from a non-member (how else to let them know the group exist?
) But for the members, I'm kind of trusting you to decide whether or not you're interested in submitting your work.
