    No, it does not. It can be based on another fandom, or be an original story. Just use the [Other] tag when posting the thread for the title.

        I have a question, if I am about to post a chapter with a particularly violent or sexual scene would I be allowed to give a warning and then place the chapter into a spoiler? That way people wouldn't have to read the chapter if they didn't want to read the type of content inside it.

          I am not exactly sure about this(but posting anyway, lots of time in my hands), but even if a single chapter or a single line has something that is above the current rating, then the rating of the entire fiction should be that of that single scene. At least that's what they do in movies. Even if there's only a teeny tiny bit of a matured scene the entire movie is normally considered inappropriate.
          (Even if releasing one chapter with warning is allowed, I don't encourage you to do so. It can disturb your flow, unless you release an alternate version of the scenes maintaining the same flow as the original)

          Anyway ignore me, Astinus/bobandbill is your man, he will tell ya what to do.

              A warning at the beginning of the chapter would be nice, but as DracoFlare said, changing the rating of your story is even better. However, it's still good to warn readers in case they do feel uncomfortable. Also, I'm pretty sure PC doesn't allow any sort of sexual scenes, aka smut fics, so if you're planning on sexual scenes, it's best that they're implied rather than fully described. Otherwise, you could get banned. Violence is acceptable, though.

              And I don't like reading anything in spoilers, but that's just my annoyance more than anything.

                It was really just an example, I am writing about a wartime Kanto and there will be violence and death throughout which the main character is pulled into. It obviously wouldn't be every chapter so I was just checking about it here.

                  I was reading over the rules and the other questions and found nothing in regards to interactive stories, so I'd like to ask if it's okay to write and post those here? By interactive stories, I mean writing a segment (chapter), posting it with questions or whatever at the end, and having the readers make choices as to where they'd like the story to go. Essentially, I'm talking about writing the equivalent of a fanfiction 'choose-your-own-adventure' type story. Is that all right?

                    I am 8 years old and a huge Pokemon fan. I have an idea for a new game, but I don't know where to go to get someone to make it. Can you help me?

                    You don't ask for ideas for games here as this section is for writing stories... you're better off checking the game development section. Note people there are usually working on their own projects already though.

                      Rules have been updated! I removed the section about applying ratings to your story because no one does that. Just warn for anything that will bother readers.

                        Hi,
                        Is romance allowed at all? I'm just wonderin' aloud.

                        Yes, it certainly is. All it needs is a warning at the start of the thread if stuff gets too steamy, so to speak. ;p

                            I personally do apply ratings on other sites where I've posted my fanfics, namely as a precaution so that people are aware that they're not meant for little kids (I write PG-13 range stories). Would it be a problem if I do that here, or should I just include a brief memo (rather than a thing labeled "rating") in an introductory section I have written out before the prologue to make people aware that there are some scenes that may come across as slightly graphic (not over the top graphic, but described in a way that's meant to leave an impact)?

                              Adding a rating is fine. A lot of people weren't following this rule, so instead of closing a bunch of threads, the moderators just decided to change the rule to include warnings. Maybe include both a rating and a memo? We have a few mature stories on here as well, so you're fine.

                                Slayr's right. It was easier to just take away the rule rather than demanding that people rate their stories. (I don't even rate my own.) You can still rate and warn in any way that you wish to help readers avoid any problems they might have with some scenes in your story.

                                  Alright then. Thanks for the input. I was just confused since some sites require distinct ratings, while on others it just didn't matter.

                                  Additionally, I should ask if curse words are allowed in fiction here. I don't go overboard with swearing in my stories, but I do include some profanity. Should I edit it out, or just censor it with asterisks or something? (Sorry if I'm sounding cautious, I just don't want to get in trouble for posting something that isn't allowed...)

                                    As long as you include a warning, you should be fine. Unless it goes overboard, then you should edit it out. It might be hard to define what "overboard" is, but it's easy to notice. Don't worry, you're fine with the questions. Better to be safe than sorry.

                                      Overboard to me is constant swearing predominantly with a lot of strong swears. I try to keep them to a minimum, but they still do get used.

                                        PC will pick up most swear words with our own filter unless you do the tag work to uncensor them.It's fine to have swear words in this section, but some people will be put off if every other word is interrupted with four asterisks.

                                        If kept at a minimum, then you'll be fine, Skunter. Having swears in your writing is okay, especially if you want to be true to your characters.

                                          Question.

                                          I want to make a poem collection thread. The person who wrote them has passed on and thus she can't say if she approves of me posting her poems here. She was a girlfriend of mine so I'm wondering if me posting her poems here would count as plagiarizing? I wanna post everything she wrote so everyone could gaze at her works.

                                            So long as you say that they're not poems you wrote and that you're posting them here because you want to share them, it's fine with me.
