Please read the :star:submission rules:star: fully for instructions on how to join.

Seriously, if you do not THOROUGHLY READ THE RULES before pressing that "Join Our Group" button, YOUR MEMBERSHIP REQUEST WILL BE DENIED.

We really hate denying people, but we, the founders, will no longer waste our time holding everyone's hand on this matter. For the love of sweet Gaia, this is a fan-fic group dedicated to reading, and READING THE RULES should be NO EXCEPTION!

This is a group dedicated to Final Fantasy VII literature of most kinds*. Whether it be haiku, drabbles, or epic multi-chapter stories, as long as it's Final Fantasy VII, it belongs here.

Sadly, sometimes literature is overlooked here on deviantART, and there are many wonderful works of literary art floating about, so our goal here is to bring to you – whether you're a member or a watcher – a comprehensive collection of these works.

All submissions will be reviewed by staff for basic structure, proper grammar, punctuation and spelling. No one is perfect (Aerith's famous “This guy are sick” come to mind?), and a literary work will not be declined for the occasional human error, but will be declined if it lacks some of the basic fundamentals of writing.





:spotlight-right:We do have a specific requirement for submissions, so please see the submission rules for more information. If you do not have the requirement in your submission, it will be declined.:spotlight-left:

No One Cares About Your StoryGOOD NEWS: This is perfectly normal!
I can't remember the source, but a few years ago I read this famous author's account of how it felt to have his first book come out, and he mentioned buying a copy himself because he was afraid no one would take an interest. Now this is a guy who managed to get not only an agency but a publisher (which is a whole pile of people who were like yesplz), and he's still afraid readers won't care. I was like, 'whoa mind blown.'
But anyway, the fact is that we are all strangers on the Internet and, by default, there is no reason for you to read my stuff or vice-versa. If you went and stood in Times Square with copies of your latest story, how many people would give you more than a passing glance? And how many of those people would get to the end of your work, and how many of those would offer critical feedback?
And, if you were one of the passersby, whom would you stop for?
Okay, I'm done scaring the shi

Nobody Loves My Character!
On making characters lovable, in your story and online
Brought to you by Super Editor
Disclaimer: This is a troubleshooting guide, and it doesn't necessarily cover every possible solution. It's based on my own experience, and not every idea may fit every character or work. Please use your common sense and personal taste when applying this information. Thanks for reading!

It's every writer's nightmare: your characters, after all the things you've put them through and all the months or years they've inhabited your head, have been eagerly displayed to the public and received an unenthusiastic response. Your audience has not been enchanted. They do not drool, fall hopelessly in love, or draw fan art in droves. They don't even pick favorite characters or whine for more information! You've failed. Nobody understands your characters. Nobody understands you.

Art Block Banisher
Do you find yourself staring like a zombie at a blank piece of paper on your desk? Do you whip your pencil in a circle to draw a head, erase it, draw it again, and still find yourself dissatisfied and uninspired? Do you long to draw your characters in some crazy or adorable situation but lack the ability to come up with an idea?
Never fear! The Art Block Banisher is here!
This is a list of possible scenarios you can evilly dump your favorite characters into, whether they belong to you or someone else. So think about a few favorite characters, pull out a pencil and paper, and let's go!

Cooking Who can cook what, and how well? How many fire extinguishers will be necessary? Try drawing a full-out scene or just little doodles.
Age: What did your characters look like when they were little? How did/would they interact? What about when they're older? Try drawing them as grown-ups or (gasp) geezers. (Here's a great tutorial on faces at differen
Planning the Evil Plot
A half-guide, half-narrative on writing a story
brought to you by Super Editor

Basics
Before I start writing, I like to have some idea of where I'm starting, where I'm going, and how I'm going to end up there. Let's say that I want to write a comedy about an author who suddenly changes places with her Mary Sue. I usually jot down some basic ideas:
Characters:
Sarah, the author: ~13 years old, average-looking, glasses, rather tall and gangly
Ellemere, the Mary Sue: ~16 years old, long flowing hair, violet eyes, etc.
Forrest (Ellemere's love interest) : ~18, stereotypical pretty boy who is too dark and broody to make a good love interest
Leon: ~17, Ellemere's somewhat dorky friend who falls in love with her but is cast off to side in favor of Forrest
Tangent: For those of you who are confused, the ~ symbol means "about." I think it comes from math.
I like to draw, so I'd probably make doodles of these characters too. Drawing characters is a great way to develop th

Writing Tips - Organisation
Writing Without Confusing Yourself (Or Your Readers)
Writing is a very personal, individual undertaking. Everybody approaches the activity a bit differently from the next guy. Some people can come up with concept, plot, characters, and everything else and just sit down and write. Others need to take time to figure out what's going on; what's going to happen in the story, and how it all fits together. Others still will find themselves getting stuck somewhere along the middle, losing track of everything or changing an idea mid-way through, or never know how to end. These are the people for whom this has been put together. Those of you who can barrel through a story overnight are still welcome to look, though.
Intro:
There are different ways in which a writer can and will get stuck on any given piece. Motivation, immediate environment, too few (or too many) ideas available, lack of organisation; the list goes on, but life is short and I am lazy. The sticking point that we're going
Writing Tips - Description
Description: Balancing Too Much and Not Enough
There’s an old adage about writing that says, “show, don’t tell.” But what does that actually mean? Surely, we’re not expected to illustrate our stories, are we? Christ, I hope not. Some of mine are rather long.
No. What that means is that you should use your words to paint a visual picture for the reader. “Talking heads” are both boring and confusing, and should generally be avoided. If you’re unfamiliar with the term, “talking heads” refers to the phenomenon where all, or most of story is carried out through the characters’ dialogue. You see it like mad in web and news paper comics, but it happens in prose as well.
The first, and arguably the most fun way to banish the talking heads is to make your characters act. This doesn’t mean action, necessarily. The character can do any amount of “going” from place to place or thing to thing, but so what? He’s still not rea

Hello.

Huge delay in response.

The best thing to do is try to keep the characters in character. Crack is fun too, but you have to keep everyone consistent and then it will roll.

Read a few of our journals with this groups for grammar tips and such, because that will help make it more readable.

I am hoping to put more journals in the group as we go to help aspiring writers ... after all, we have to start somewhere.

Hi! I was wondering if I could make a suggestion.... Could "Hetero" and "non-pairing" fics have separate folders? It's nice to be able to go into a section and know that none of it will contain any romance at all. ^^ I like gen fics.

Hello, I don't know if you are or are not aware of this, but Fanfiction.net is facing a crisis of being purged and removed from the internet, an I was wondering if you'd be able to help spread the word around to help keep it online?

More information and the petition can be found here: [link]

Thank you for taking the time to read that and in advance if you decided to help out, Becci the Bemo.
