Welcome to the new Writers' board! This board is for:

-Non-Buffy-universe fandoms (eg. Star Trek, X-Files, etc)
-Other misc Buffy-universe pairings, so long as they don't involve Buffy or Angel Razz
-Buffy-universe character fiction (no pairing)
-Original work - your own characters etc
-Non-fiction, if you like - articles, diary stuff, whatever
-Works in progress (please mark them in the Subject as WIP)
-Questions, essays, snippets for discussion and help

Just remember - please mark your adult stories, and always critique constructively!

Have fun!

Great idea, Dark Star. I'm sure that this thread will produce some fascinating reading.

One teeny thing...other than submitting finished stand-alone pieces to Scribes, there doesn't seem to be anywhere in the wonderful world of darkstarfic.com for those of us who write non-shipper Angelverse stuff. I understand why other ships than B/A don't have a home here, after all there are loads of places to submit that stuff, but if you like writing Angel, and like me, do quite a lot of non-shippy stuff - there isn't really a home for it. Any chance of including it somewhere here?

From what DS has said to me, that should be OK here. I think the only thing she doesn't want is other shipper stuff. General Angel stuff should be fine.

Thanks Mike. Now all I have to do is start writing something again....this writer's block is now entering its fourth month and feeling a bit permanent *gulp*. Sad

Mike is correct, LisaP. Any general BtVS/Angel (Or other fandoms) fiction is welcome on this board.

I don't have a problem with other pairings either - like... Lilah/Wesley, but given the nature of the board other pairings using Buffy or Angel is likely to be volatile.

Good Luck with that... we've all been there! Don't forget that if you have a problem/question/need advice, etc, you can post that here, too. Perhaps our members will be able to help. Smile

LisaP - write down the first thing you think of when you wake up and try to work that into a short story (even a drabble) throughout the day.

Sometimes that works for me....

I think this is a great idea. I could be very busy with this. Actually I think an essay sort of might be the first thing I post.

Just a reminder here - don't forget to mark stories of an adult nature... Smile

Are you crazy? We'll go around their houses and kneecap them if they're not busy, more like. Razz
