This journal is to write parodies about bad fanfiction. We make fun of Mary Sues. If you write Mary Sues because you want to, don't join. Otherwise, feel free.
Mission Statement of the Community: To make fun of bad fanfic by creating ridiculous characters to show suethors what they should NOT do.
The Ten Commandments
Rule #1: I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod. Thou shalt have no other Mods in this commmunity before me. Think of it as sort of being like God, except with the letter M instead of a G. I rule with justice and common sense. I reserve the right to ban anyone who isn't playing nicely. If you don't like it, don't join. I also reserve the right to change the rules (with appropriate notice) at anytime. I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod.
Rule #2: You will treat all the other posters with respect at all times. I mean it. Don't make fun of each other, make fun of the bad fanfiction. If you troll or flame I will be ban you without question. I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod.
Rule #3: You will only post your own work. If you plagarize (that is, copy someone else's work without permission and without citing your sources) and you are found out (this is the internet. Sooner or later, you will be) I will ban you without question. I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod.
Rule #4: We are here to make fun of bad fanfiction. We are not here to discuss puppies, kittens, other communities, or why cheese smells bad. The one exception to this is your very first post where you may introduce yourself. Keep it short and sweet. I would like it better if you simply posted one or two sentences, but whatever. The best way to get others to know you is to participate in the community. If I'm in a good mood, I will let an OT post slip by. Make too many, and you will incur my wrath. I will ban you without question. I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod.
Rule #5: You probably won't agree with many of the sentiments expressed in my private journal. I don't care if you do or don't. If you agree with the sentiments expressed therein, you may friend me, and I may friend you back. The key word there is "may." If any of you in any way incur my wrath by flaming or trolling my private journal, I will BAN YOU WITHOUT QUESTION. I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod.
Rule #6: a.You must place your parodies under an lj cut. If you don't know how to do this, go look it up in the FAQs. If you forget or accidentally miss a tag, I will politely remind you. If you continually ignore my polite reminders, I will think about banning you. If you are an incredibly obtuse member who can't be bothered to look up how to do a cut in the FAQs, I will ban you. If you learn how to do an lj cut and then ask nicely to come back, I'll think about it.
b. Further, you must have good spelling and grammar in your parodies. I know authors of Mary Sues (referred to as "suethors") can't spell, but the point of these parodies is to show the suethors how ridiculous they look. It is not to give me a headache. You are allowed to use some internet chat speak, but most of you parody must be written so I can read it. Bad grammar and/or spelling gives me a headache and makes me cranky. Making me cranky will make me want to bring down the Clue Bat with swift and deadly force, as well as the Stick of Bannation. I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod.
Rule #7: If, in the future, I decide to add more mods to this community, they will be listed here. They will be subject to my authority, but I will give them mini mod powers. I will pick mods whose decisions I feel I can back. Appealing to me about their decisions will not likely get you anywhere. If you continually gripe, moan, and whine to me about their decisions (or about my decisions), I will ban you. I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod.
Rule #8: If your parody is Not Work Safe (NWS) or not safe for young eyes, place a notice above it. If it might be offensive to anyone, place a notice above it. If you get me in trouble with LJ's TOS, I'm sure it comes to no surprise by this point that I will ban you without question. I am currently toying with the idea of instituting a ratings system and making it required for all parodies. You don't want me to do that, trust me. I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod.
Rule #9: If you feel you would also like to be a mod/evil lj overlord, say so. I would prefer it if you 1. Have been a member of the community for at least a month and 2. If you feel you can respect my authority. I can and will reject your application for any reason. If you don't like rejection, don't ask me to be a mod. I hate drama. Creating lj drama will get you banned. I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod.
Rule #10: If you have read through all these commandments and wish to join the community, reply with a post to the post stating that you have read the rules and agree to abide by them. Attempting to join the community without doing this will get you laughed at and then rejected. I, prncsbkwrm, am the Mod. ---------------------- I ripped this off deleterius and then edited it to suit my nefarious purposes.
Unless you are continuing a story, your posts should have this above the cut: Story Or Series Title: Fandom: Body Count: (# of fandoms abused)
Full Name (plus titles if any): Full Species(es): Hair Color (include adjectives): Eye Color (include adjectives): Unusual Markings/Colorations: Special Possessions (if any):
If you are continuing your parody, please place a link above the cut to the previous chapter.
If your parody is going to be/turns into an exceedingly long one (above ten chapters), please repost the original info every so often. If you are so inclined, you can create another personal journal for your story, and link people there for previous chapters.
I may in the future create a limit of how many parodies people can post per day, but we'll just see how it goes for now.
If you're wondering if your character is possibly a Mary Sue/Gary Stu, this is not the place to ask. If you are properly ashamed of your old Mary Sue/Gary Stu fanfiction, and wish it to be mocked, this is most definitely the place for that.
