Twilight's Library is intended to be an organised collection of good fanfiction, according to the following guidelines. Going from simple origins as a place that arcum42 & Ananse shared fanfiction they enjoyed with each other, the group has grown to 2000+ members, with more than a dozen admins and contributors keeping things running.
Feel free to browse through our archives, looking for any fanfiction that you may enjoy. We do periodically feature fanfiction that the admins of the group feel deserve more attention. Discussion on this group is welcome, as long as you keep it on a friendly basis and follow these simple rules. Or you can take the discussion to our Skype group, which has proven quite popular.
Submitting fanfiction to this group is done as follows. If a fanfic is complete and 20k or less, or it is incomplete and under 10k, submit it to this folder. Only submit two or less at a time.
Everything else should be submitted to this folder. As these fanfics are longer, you are presently only allowed to submit one fanfic at a time here. Exceeding either limit may lead to a temporary ban.
Once the folders hit a certain number of fanfics, they will get locked to the public until we work through them. We'll post a thread when the folders do open. Make sure to read this thread before submitting fanfics, as the rules are subject to change, and the most recent ones will always be there.
Once a fanfic has been submitted, eventually either an admin or contributor will read it (or enough of it to make a decision). If a contributor reads it, they will post their opinion to this thread on whether it should be approved or rejected, and add it to the relevant folder. Then an admin will look it over, and make the final decision. Admins may also bypass this step and judge fanfiction directly. In either case, it will be deleted from the incoming folders. If it was approved, it will be added to all relevant folders, and our group ribbon will be posted in the story comments. Otherwise, a rejection will be posted here.
It should be noted that random rape/gore/death fanfics will most likely be rejected, as will most foalcon. Human in Equestria fanfics and fics with both the mature and sex tags are also held to slightly higher standards.
If any openings become available for contributor positions, a notice will be posted, and the application thread will be unlocked. The application will them be looked at and judged by several admins, and given to arcum42 for a final decision. All admins will be picked from contributors. These rules may be overridden by arcum42's whim as the head of the group, but don't count on it.
If you have concerns, questions, or even complaints, please do not send them directly to the group admins. As it happens, Twilight already whipped up something to cover this. Any pm's should be sent over to Twilight's Automation, and it will be handled from there. Of course, if the automation acts up, you can pm us about it.
Featured fanfics can be found in the Featured folder.
