Fan Fiction Has a New Home

Tue May 20, 2014, 9:36 AM

As many of you have noticed, the Literature gallery gets a huge influx of fan fiction submissions. We're hoping that by having Fan Fiction under the Literature umbrella, the number of miscats in the overall gallery will drop. And, for those of us who frequent both galleries, it'll simplify submitting and finding work. :boogie:

Of course, we can't cut down on miscats without your help! Please spread the word by favoriting and sharing this journal, and by moving any of your own submissions as appropriate.

Not sure whether your submission counts as fan fiction? FAQ #572: What does deviantART consider "Fan Art" to be?

(Note that gallery updates for both Literature and Fan Fiction is in the works. Please continue to use the category that best fits your work.)

You're welcome to bring your concerns to us at any time!

Thank you for moving the fanfiction category. I can honestly say that as a fanfiction writer myself, I had no idea that there was even a fanfiction category. But a few days ago I saw that pop up in the Literature category and I took the time to move all my fanfiction chapters to that category I thought it was a new category completely and had wondered why we "didn't" have it before this week. It makes much more sense to have it in Literature. I'd never think to look in "fanart" to place my piece of literature in.

I was worried sick, I went to look up fanfictions and I saw that there was no folder, so I started freaking out.
Then I saw they moved it to the literature section and I was like "Oh, okay, that makes things easier I guess."

Now if only people started submitting fan art in the fan art section.

This is so exciting! :nuu:
I'm all for fan fiction, but it's been really hard to find original lit amongst all the incorrectly categorized fan fiction. I really hope people take notice of this and make use of it!
