Keeping the Keep

by: Smoker

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.

#379360 · 1w, 1d ago · · ·

It's almost like there's little spy cameras watching, waiting, for us to leave our desktops and laptops alone...unlocking folders only whilst nobody is around to watch.:raritydespair: I haven't seen them unlocked in months.:twilightoops:

#379208 · 1w, 2d ago · · ·


#379041 · 1w, 4d ago · 1 · ·


You're welcome. I'm just tryin' to help. :twilightblush:

#379038 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·

>>379036 It's fine either way, I'm not upset about it...

Thank you for being polite about it though... :twilightsmile:

#379036 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·


The folders'll open again soon. Just gotta be patient. :twilightsmile:

#379033 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·

>>378985 I didn't blame anyone for anything...

I've never had the chance to submit a story, I'm fine with that though... I'ts just a website.

I just stated, I wasn't going to try on this group anymore... :applejackunsure:

#378985 · 1w, 4d ago · · ·


Did you submit one and it was rejected, or do you mean the length of time it takes for the folders to re-open? Don't forget, it's a small staff and there are a LOT of fics to get through. You can't blame them for taking a break. :pinkiecrazy:

#378813 · 1w, 6d ago · · ·

Hello my fellow writers and readers, it truly has been a long time but I have com back for this short amount of time to present what I was working on. :twilightblush:

Blank Canvas has been a story that is long over due from showing but I have now FINISHED IT! :yay:

So if you would like to read it here is the link. :moustache:


#378127 · 2w, 5d ago · 2 · ·

Welp that's it, I give up getting a story in here. :rainbowlaugh:

Never again. :ajbemused:

#377718 · 3w, 1d ago · · ·


... and reopen within a week or two of it being cleared, schedules permitting.

Complete Under 20k/Incomplete Under 10k has only just been cleared, and Complete 20k+/Incomplete 10k+ still has ten stories to go (as of this posting).

#376978 · 4w, 1d ago · · ·

Any idea on when fanfics will be allowed to be submitted again?

#376276 · 4w, 6d ago · · ·


Thank you!

#376275 · 4w, 6d ago · · ·


This is odd... It's possible that it was a victim to one of Knighty's glitches.

It's on my Read Later list; I'll look into it myself.


#376238 · 4w, 6d ago · · ·


What was the name of the story?


#374738 · 6w, 4d ago · · ·

Huh...I sent in a story a month ago, and I got no response...weird.
