We have many many talented writers among us, and here is one of the many places we can share what tales and stories we can see in this scenario! We've been a community of friends and writers for almost a over several years now, and we plan to keep going!
Anyone is allowed to submit stories to the group, so have at it -- the only rule is that it has to be a TCB story! (That is, set in a world where Conversion Bureaus are a thing.)
The only reason we've gotten to be so big is because we always have more writers joining us out of the blue, so if you feel like you have an idea for a story, just write it down and post it. We'll try and give you constructive criticism to help you improve your writing skills and storymaking. From complete novices to fully fledged novelists, everyone is encouraged to participate.
We occasionally run writing events, so keep an ear out!
There are many folders (detailed below) and classification is up to the Author initially, but incorrectly-attributed stories may be moved or removed by a group admin.
Pending Approval: The new incoming folder for all stories that users wish to add to the group. The same standards apply as before, so any previously rejected stories may not be resubmitted. After review by an administrator or a contributor, all approved stories will be added to their appropriate folders.
Stories by Universe: Stories by specific authors within settings of their own design. A myriad assortment of tales await within each of these unique settings.
Emergence Stories: Stories which feature the events surrounding the collision of Equestria and Earth, and the culture clash that results.
Conversion Bureau Experience: Stories that follow characters as they interact with the experience of undergoing Conversion or helping others do so.
Conversion Bureau Adventure: Stories featuring characters within the greater world of TCB, and what secrets the new, unified worlds might hold.
Post-TCB: Stories which explore the concept of a world after the events of a TCB setting have occurred.
Featured Stories: Stories which best display the talents behind the authors in the TCB universe go here. One per customer.
Main: Original primary folder for all TCB stories. Due to the Pending Approval folder, this folder will remain locked for archival purposes.
Finally, this group is one that is for the fostering of a cooperative, friendly and safe creative environment. To that end, any user found to be harassing another will be asked to stop twice. If they fail to heed the second warning, or they have three incidents of harassment, then they will be removed from the group. There will be no exceptions to this rule. Depending on the nature of the incident, the user(s) in question may be reported to Knighty and/or Poultron at administrator discretion. For clarification, harassment is defined as insulting another user personally on faith, sexual orientation, gender, or any other qualifying attribute; If a user asks you to stop, or that they consider a comment of yours harassment, do not take it upon yourself to reply or retaliate. An impartial, uninvolved administrator will handle the incident as quickly as possible.
