Community description:a multi-fandom recommendation community focusing on gen fanfiction

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY GEN?

We mean a story of any length or genre, in which the focus is not on a romantic or sexual relationship. Fics may acknowledge romance/relationships/sex, but these things should not - at all - be the focus of the story.

Instead, we request that you rec fics that focus more on family, friendship, plot, character exploration, adventure, whatever! So long as the primary focus is not a romantic or sexual relationship, you're good! If you have any questions, ask!

I'M NOT SURE IF MY REC IS GEN...

Gen can be a bit blurred with other genres sometimes. We get it! If the fic you want to rec really is open to interpretation, we won't stop you recommending it. But we ask that you think very carefully about it. There are plenty of places to recommend and find shippy fic. This is not one of them, so please think carefully about each rec and, if you're in doubt, perhaps hold off for a bit and try to find something more fitting to the genre we're really looking for.

CAN I RECOMMEND ONE OF MY OWN FICS?

At this stage we won't be allowing self-recs.



HOW DO I POST?

Please use this handy template! (Note that you will need to use the HTML updater, not rich text.)



HTML MODE? WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME?

Mwahahahaha!

There's nothing complicated there. It's all just copy and paste. But if you're not sure how to pretty your links up so it displays as the fic title, or you're not sure how to code somebody's user name, Dreamwidth has some handy instructions!

DW FAQ: How to code usernames.

(Or you can copy and paste from these text boxes) -

Dreamwidth username or community:



Username on another website, like AO3 or livejournal:



To display a link as the fic's title:



HOW MANY RECS CAN I POST?

As many as you want! But please don't take to spamming our flists! If you want to put your recs in separate posts, that's fine, but please limit it to two recs per day. If you're going to combine your recs into one post, we'll allow two recs outside of a cut - but the rest should go beneath. (If you're not sure how to create a cut, the dreamwidth FAQ has a great guide.)



WHAT'S UP WITH THE TAGS?

We're pretty informal around here! Just tag your post with - fandom name, and then you can add a few fun/squeeful/whatever tags to go with it! If the tag you want to add can apply to more than one fandom, that's great! But don't worry if it doesn't. If your fandom has pet nicknames for brOTPs, families, or friendships, use them! If the fic you're reccing has a list of tropes, tag them! The only mandatory tag is the fandom tag, and even if you miss that, one of the mods will add it for you. (We'll also merge any similar tags, purely for searching purposes - similar tags just split the searching into too many little threads. But if you've noticed one of your tags has disappeared and you really want to keep it, just say so!) The point is, don't stress about the tags! Feel free to have a bit of fun with them.

That said, however, one tag does have a restriction on it, and that is the 'gensploder' tag. This tag needs to be earned through the GENSPLODER OF THE MONTH challenge before you get one of your own.



THIS COMMUNITY SURE IS AWESOME.
HOW DO I SPREAD THE JOY AND WONDER TO MY FRIENDS?

Why, thank you! If you'd like to promote gensplosion to your flisties, we have a selection of banners that can be found here. We're always keen for more recs and for more fandoms to be represented.



I HAVE ANOTHER QUESTION!

Ask away! One of the mods will answer you as soon as we can, but please give us a day or so to get back to you, due to time zones and such. Your mods are [personal profile] isabelquinn and [personal profile] ozqueen.
