    Hello there. I'm new to here a few things about me.
    First thing is I write fanfiction that I am trying to improve upon.
    Secondly I have been a fan for a long time my dad took me to the cinema when the first movie came out.
    Thirdly I have been needing to be around like minded people.
    May the force be with you always

    Pretty sure we are. We have a sister site called Rebelscum but it's more collecting-oriented.

    Not sure what type of fanfic you write but our section caters for both SW and Non-SW. If you have any questions about what goes where feel free to ask one of the forum mods. Their names are in the forum headers.

    Yes sir. I mainly post my fics on AO3. I'm gonna be using the forums as an academy of sorts. Star Wars university like a treasure trove of information. My fics are usually NSFW and why I stick to posting on AO3. But if I do write a humourous fic and sfw I will get permission from the admin to see if it is appropriate for the forums

    Yeah, NSFW definitely wouldn't fly here. Our users are as young as 13 so things like explicit sex aren't allowed.

    I completely understand and post those off forums. But this place is a complete breath of fresh air. Facebook groups are ruthless if you are not interested in reylo. They will try to make sure you don't have a pleasant time in the group. I feel as though I have found a sanctuary and Shangri-La.

    We try to keep things friendly here. Just a note that you can put a link to your fics in your user ID signature. However if they aren't SFW I'd put a warning there as well.

    Edit - we've had our issues with Reylo as well. If you encounter an abusive post you can use the Report function to report it. All of the mods have access to reports.

    Welcome to the boards @Illyrika! Looks like @LAJ_FETT has got you pretty well in hand with the information. :)

    If you need any help, you can also feel free to PM me. Always good to have another writer on board!

    And check out the Imagin-Atrium thread here in the Welcome New Users area incase you feel up to trying another form of creative writing. ;)

    I tried once............didn't last long....My kids grew up knowing this was where I'd be if they needed me. Both joined when old enough but they felt weird being here with mum. :( They both left. :( So I adopt kids here now! :p

    @Illyrika hello! Welcome to the community. :)

    If you enjoy writing then you’d probably like role playing. I highly recommend the RPF. Drop me a note if you’d like help finding your way around.

    Got a question can we link an external fanfiction site on the forum for fanfiction?
