Mod Post: Posting Rules & Guidelines (Revision)

Here are the newly revised Posting Rules and Guidelines. Pay close attention to the new section on tagging your posts.


The Supernatural Crossover Journal is what the name says...a community for Supernatural crossovers. Both fanfiction and fanart are welcome. You can also post recommendations for good Supernatural crossover stories found elsewhere.

Tagging Your Posts

Here are the new posting rules in regards to tagging:

When making new posts in this community, please add your own tags. In the tag field at the bottom of your post, just enter the name of the fandom you are crossing SPN over with in your fanfiction/fanart/fanvid/etc.

You can find a list of all of the fandom tags HERE. If a fandom isn't on the list, send a message to dannyblue, and I will add it for you.

There are a few specialty tags you should use if you are posting things other than fanfiction. They are:

.audiofic
.fanart
.fanvids

If you need a specialty tag for something that isn't there, send a message to dannyblue, and I will add it.



Fanfiction Guidelines

If you're posting fic, a header would be nice. Just a little something to let us know what we're getting into. Like this,

Title:
Author:
Fandoms:(Supernatural/Firefly, for example)
Rating:
Warnings: (Any spoilers, pairings, graphic sex, incest, gory violence, slash, character death, original characters, etc...)
Summary: (If you want.)
Disclaimer:
Distribution:

And here's what you should put in the subject line.

Fic: "The Winchesters On Mockingbird Lane" (SPN/Munsters)

or, if posting crossovers with multiple fandoms,

Fic: Crossovers with Smallville, Charmed, and CSI.




Fanart Guidelines

When posting fanart, this is what you should put in the subject line.
Fanart: SPN/Smallville manip (or wallpaper, icons, etc.)

or, if you're posting crossover fanart involving multiple fandoms,

Fanart: Crossovers with Smallville, Charmed, and CSI.

And here are a few more guidelines to keep in mind.


1. If you are posting more than 4 icons, you can put up to 4 icons on the main page as samples, but put the rest behind an lj-cut.

2. If your art is bigger than 300X300, put it behind a cut as well.

3. If you are posting fanart or a fanfic banner that is explicity Wincesty, please put it behind a cut. You can read more about it here:

Fanart and Fanfic Banners





Recommendation Guidelines

If your posting a fanfic recommendation, tell us what the crossover is in the subject line. For example:

Rec: "The Winchesters On Mockingbird Lane" (Supernatural/Munsters)

or, if you're posting multiple recs,

Rec: Crossovers with Smallville, Charmed, and CSI.

When describing the story you're reccing, please try not to spoil it. However, you might want to mention it if the story is slash, AU, etc.

This is what you should put in the subject line when making fanart recs.

Fanart Rec: SPN/Smallville manip

or, if you're posting crossover fanart involving multiple fandoms,

Fanart Recs: Crossovers with Smallville, Charmed, and CSI.





What is the Live Journal cut tag?

It’s a tag that keeps the main Journal pages looking all nice and neat.

<*lj-cut> YOUR POST <*/lj-cut>

(only without the *)

When posting a story, place the Live Journal cut tag after the header. This will put everything after the header (the body of the story) on a separate page readers can get to by clicking on a link. Go HERE for more details about using this tag.




General Rules

1. All stories and fanart must include at least one character from Supernatural, and the characters or concepts from another fandom.

2. No flaming in feedback. Constructive criticism is fine…even welcomed. But flames (rude comments, personal attacks, name calling, etc.) are a no-no.

3. This Live Journal isn’t the place for general discussion, but for the posting of fanfiction, fanart, and recommendations of fic and fanart.

4. Please don't advertise your Live Journal or website in this Live Journal without requesting permission. Just send a message to dannyblue . If your LJ/website/challenge is in the spirit of this LJ (meaning it's somehow related to Supernatural and/or Supernatural crossover fanfiction), there's a pretty good chance I'll let you post about it here.

5. If you have an LJ, you can become an affiliate. Just go to this page and make a post, including the URL to your community.

6. RPF Crossovers are allowed. An example of an RPF crossover would be Dean meeting Jensen.

7. I'm sure I'll think of more later.
