Pride and Positivity 125 members · 55 stories

Hey FimFiction!

It's Pride Month, and people need positivity now more than ever, so we're holding an event where you write a Pride-positive fic. We're calling this,

PRIDE AND POSITIVITY!

This can mean many things, including showcasing the LGBT+ aspect of one or more characters, exploring discrimination, or even writing a ship fic with a same sex pairing. We also encourage intersectionality! If you want to incorporate race, mental health, etc. then please do!

Positivity is the name of the game here, so the story should be positive in the end. It can be sad for a while, but there should be a happy ending.

The story doesn't have to be complete. Related to the above, that does mean you can leave us on a nasty cliffhanger! Just let us know it'll turn out fine.

We encourage a maximum rating of T.

Optional: To brighten up FimFiction's front page, you can include a Pride flag in the cover art, or in the description. You can see many here, or you can use a variant flag like the Progress Pride flag.
EDIT: I want to give people a heads up that fics that feature pride flags in the cover art are being targeted for downvotes; previous fics in this group that have done so received 18-20 downvotes. My view is that it's good that those people are getting upset, and people who would be interested in your story will understand what's happening, but I understand if you'd rather not receive so many downvotes on your story.

Optional: Stretch outside the bounds of what you usually write! If you've never written a trans character, try it out now. And so on. If you ask, we'll try to offer a sensitivity reader to look over your work. PM SigmasonicX about that.

Now here's the exciting part. For each submitted fic, we'll donate $20 to a charity of your choice from one of these lists!

Black Lives Matter - Where to Donate
Support Black People MasterDoc

The latter especially frontloads LGBT funds and charities. PM SigmasonicX your story and a link to your chosen charity. He'll message you back with the donation receipt.

Make sure to include the above links in the description of your fic and encourage readers to donate! You can do this with a story you already published this June, and we'll still donate.

We'll be donating until the end of June July 13, but feel free to keep making stories after.

EDIT: I just got some exciting news! For every submitted fic, Lord Camembert will donate $10 to the Transgender Law Center, and his company will match that donation, meaning $20 per fic. That means every fic will result in $40 of donations!

So to sum up:

  • Write a positive Pride fic! Doesn't have to be complete, max rating of T. You can also submit an already published fic from this month.
  • With each fic, we'll donate $20 to a charity of your choice from either Black Lives Matter - Where to Donate or Support Black People MasterDoc. EDIT: In addition, $20 will go to the Transgender Law Center.
  • Add those links to the description of your story and encourage readers to donate.
  • We'll be donating until the end of June July 13.

Sorry. Aside from what I mentioned, I'm also not including any M-rated stories besides gara's.

Well since you’re in charge I was wondering if I could add my story called “Love, Sex, & Confusions”

It involves a Rarity and a Non-Binary OC character

Hello! Yes I am. If you're asking about adding to this group, then even for stuff written before the deadline, I'm not accepting any more stories other than ones I was told about before the deadline. I'll need another paycheck or two before I can start donating so much again, lol.

Hello I’m 13 Shades if Sunset rare you in charge of this group

You may have noticed that an M-rated fic was added to the group, and I wanted to confirm that I did indeed give permission for this. The story was written with the possibility of being either T or M, with M being decided in the end. More than that, gara is one of the few authors I'd trust to write a great M-rated Pride-positive fic (and incidentally also sex worker positive), so I was willing to make an exception.

Thank you for understanding!

Oh sure, you're good.

Hi there! I'm currently working on a story (Sorry I'm cutting it real close!) and I'm hoping to get it done today or tomorrow! Hope that's ok and I still manage to make it in time for the donations, this is such an awesome cause 😅:scootangel:

Only a few more days left! I'll be willing to donate for things submitted after the deadline, but you should tell me ahead of time you're working on a story.

I got so busy this weekend that I forgot to donate! Here's the catching up: i.imgur.com/c6FJCzJ.png

Now that we've reached the originally planned end date for this, I want to highlight that we've donated about $1120 to charity! Still another two weeks to go after the extension, so keep it going!

You don't have to, and many haven't. However, the donation will go to one of the charities in the links. Note this includes charities not directly linked to Black Lives Matter, like the ACLU and NAACP, and tons more.
