  • On a comparatively better subject than Fe~, are you familiar with how Fanfiction.net works? I ask because you're the one who most mentions reading fan fiction, & I don't remember if I asked this before. Mostly I'm wondering what would happen if I submitted an entire story as a single document instead of just chapter-by-chapter, because that sounds horrible.

    • It's technically allowed, but unofficially frowned upon if the work is deemed too long.  Ultimately, it's up to you.

    • Would it split into multiple pages or just be one obnoxiously long scrolling adventure?

    • It'd be one obnoxiously long scrolling adventure. 

      Admittedly, I'm basing this on the works of this one facepalm-worthy WoW fan writer from back in the day.  That was years ago, so something might have been changed since; but I kind of doubt it.

    • That's unfortunate, but thank you.

    • Side note (don't ask why i saw this xD) but if you use AO3, they're much more lax about formatting and such. I say 'lax' but it's more like, so long as the work is appropriately tagged, you have more freedom. Many authors have migrated towards that site as, while they do have moderators, there is far less censorship as goes on (either policy-wise or literally amongst users) than fanfiction.net.

      Also it looks prettier :P

    • Oh, it's fine, I'm hardly one to ask questions or criticize about why people end up in random conversations. I did think about Archive of Our Own, but its workings were something of a black box compared to FFN, which is said to be more popular, & also I was scared off by all the porn tags. My main concern is finding something that'll split a document into several pages, because I seriously don't want to go back & turn each chapter into its own document.

    • Hmm unfortunately AO3 doesn't do that either HOWEVER it *does* enable users to download the story into various formats (html, epub, pdf and one other one that idr because I don't use it) and then, naturally, it is split up into different pages.

      It's true that there are lots of porn tags, but that's only in order to facilitate tagging. If you have porn, you have to tag it, but whereas FFN says "it cannot be rated M" AO3 is like "u want tentacles? non-con? underage? cool, just tag it appropriately!".

      FFN gets more foot traffic but I prefer to both read and post stories on A0# because it's a much nicer experience imo

    • Well, I am looking to expand on readers because it seems like if I'm going to spend so much time on it I should try to expand beyond a handful, but it does sound like AO3 meets my formatting needs better. Thanks for letting me know.
