Welcome to the Fan Fiction Boards! We?re so glad you?re here! Now that you are here, you probably have a lot of questions about the Fan Fiction Boards, posting stories, and how to fit into this crazy community. That?s why I created this Fan Fiction Orientation Guide. This Orientation Guide should help answer any questions that you may have about the boards and fan fiction. If it doesn?t, just feel free to ask! I?ve recruited several helpful volunteers that have offered their services as ?Orientation Leaders.? They?ve agreed to try to visit the thread every now and then and answer questions and to also be available via PM to answer any questions you may have. I?d like to say welcome to the Fan Fiction Boards again, and I hope you find your stay here to be a good one.
