INTRODUCTION TO THE DAMIEN MOLONY FAN FICTION SECTION (please read before using this area)
Permalink  
 

 

Welcome to the area of the forum for Damien Molony Fan Fiction!


Here members can share Damien related  poems, fan fics, haiku or any other creative writing.

Please feel free to begin a new topic for each new project, in the case of a fan fic stating your member name in the topic title so other members know it is yours. This way members can also add to a fan fic gradually over time.

Where sharing and recommending the work of others, please always credit the source and provide a link to the source website.

 If any of our visitors or guests wish to share content from this area of the forum please ask permission of the member concerned, and always credit the source!

 All original works posted here by our members, belong to their creator, with all rights reserved.

Please note this is a public forum for an actor that is viewed by people across the world of all ages and has a family friendly policy. For that reason, we do not allow fanfic that is very adult/explicit in nature in this public part of the forum. Fan fic with some profanity/adult themes is allowed, but if there is any language or content that may offend some people in your fan fic, please indicate that in the topic title, for example 'some adult content' / 'some profanity'. Any mega offensive words, bigger than the f-bomb, will automatically be removed by the forum profanity filter.

If you are unsure of the suitability of your work for this area please check with admin first before posting.

 

Members may also post very adult content in the private part of the forum 'The Member's Lounge'.

 

Thank you and enjoy!

I like the idea of a fan creation section, but i have one question regarding fan fiction.

There is a profanity filter here and there is bad language in the Being Human fandom as a whole which will be filtered out here or can you adjust the profanity filter as such? (also innocuous words get starred out too even if they're part of another word which could be problematic)

Hi Lisa!

interesting point, it relates the the forum as whole I think, not just fan fiction and maybe needs more thinking about. (perhaps it needs a topic in our Q & A section.)

The profanity filter is there because this is listed as a family friendly forum, if we were to make it 'adult' we would lose a potentially large part of the audience. not only that but while we are all friendly and lovely peeps, this is a public forum and it prevents offensive spamming.

Only really a few major swear words are in our profanity filter..but there are ways around it that would not impinge on the flow of a fan fic... for example just write f*** everyone knows what that means. Do you mean included words like c ocktail ? maybe just writing it the way would work? what do you think?

Yeah, that's what i mean and it is an idea to write it as such but that means possibly going into the fic and re-editing (i guess i'm just lazy).

We don't know unless we try. :)

Since chatting with you about this Lisa i have edited the profanity filter (but we can only do this with the forum upgrade which is only a month's trial at the mo and may not apply retrospectively) Now only really hardcore and offensive racist swear words will be edited out...i cannot imagine them being used in a fan fic and if they were i wouldn't want them here anyway.. my suggestion now to circumvent the family friendly rule would be to put a little 'strong language' warning if it contains the f word or worse, is that ok?

That sounds okay Domino and that is also very accommodating of you, thank you. 

How about i test it out and i'll post up 'The Eve Of...' first chapter as a test and see how that goes?

Short question about posting fan(g)-fic here: Would you prefer that we copy the fic into the posts or can we post links to the fanfic site (ff.net, archiveofourown.org,...) we posted the fic on? *me being lazy* XD
Also how much Hal should be in it for us to post it here? My fic has Hal in most chapters but not in all of them.

Hi 0positiv, thanks for those questions.. i had not really considered them before. I kind of feel it is up to us as a community to decide, not me in particular, but my initial feeling is links to fan fic are fine, any sharing of members creativity is good! Also if anyone stumbles across and great Damien related fan fics as I sometime do, then the link would be preferred, it is a better way to credit the source in that case.

However, it would also be cool to see some fan fic starting and being posted here, so I would like to encourage that too!

If your fan fic is a whole story with different chapters mostly with Hal in, then that is def on topic I'd say 0po, and fine to post it here!

I am sure I speak for us all though in saying if anyone has done any kind of fanfic that is not related to Damien, it would still be awesome to read it, please feel free to post it in the 'off topic' area (The Cafe).

How does that sound to everyone? As always, your opinions / views appreciated!

Just to let everyone know, the introduction guidelines to this section have been updated, the part about language and adult content was misleading and should be clearer now.

Hi Steelmoth!

Actually these guidelines were created as a result of a PM you sent me advising that we did not have adult themed fan fiction on the public forum!
The forum is categorised as family friendly whether BH is adult or not, but if it the content you refer to s euphemistically presented it is not really adult, an R rating usually refers to something explicit, in the film world at least.  it depends what you means by adult? maybe send me a link by PM and i can have a look?

These limits do not apply in The Member's Lounge, so please feel free to post anything there.

Also just a reminder to everyone this area is for Damien fan fics, or fan fics that at least contain a larger proportion of Damien! thanks

On the subject of linking fics on other sites, does the rating thing still apply? I'd like to link my fics, but I'm not sure if you'd consider them too adult.

My fics are rated R for posting the Livejournal comm where I promote them, but there's not really anything that explicit, it's more about UST, and it's mostly alluded to, or euphemistically presented, rather than detailed biology! And also, some of the sex scenes in earlier series were quite explicit, so surely it's not that far outside the remit of fan creations to include some sexual themes, given that BH airs post-watershed?

Aw, thank you for the support and the praise!

We've spoken in pm's and Domino has read them now, but I do agree with her  that they might possibly be too adult for this forum; it's a fine line, one person's explicit is another person's mild. I wouldn't personally say they were explicit (compared to the kind of things I had in mind when saying we should be careful, and believe me, I've written and read things elsewhere that would make the boards implode!), but I'm of course happy to go along with her decision either way, and if people want to read them if the answer is no, they're linked off my Tumblr, or I can pm people links. :)

But thanks. <3

Yeah fair enough :)

Personally I'm not into fic that's too explicit, but yours was not too much :p
I would love to read more *hint hint* biggrin 
You're welcome

Oh! is this making way too bigger deal out of something already written in the guidelines here..?

To be clear, it is not about my personal tastes or preferences, i am not in any way offended by very much..but this is a public forum where people do have different views and thresholds, and considering that the rules were amended based on something you pointed out to me a while ago in private Steelmoth - you rightly pointed out that anything much above PG13 could be dodgy and awkward, and that one of our far less explicit topics than your fanfic could be an issue, which i then moved as a consequence - I guess i can only refer to the guidelines: Some explicit language is allowed in fanfic in this section of the forum, but not explicit or adult themes.

Personally I have always found rating systems too abstract and unrealistic, and hate censorship but at the end of the day this is public forum for an actor that is viewed by people across the world of all ages ..and Damien ain't just a BH actor.

Also, it would be very difficult further down the line to justify not allowing something that was just a little more racy_ it would be opening a whole can of worms!

This forum is listed as family friendly with the forum hosts, but we could change that to 'adult', but that would potentially be hard to justify as many of our members are under 18 and to restrict access would be ridiculous.

As a compromise I feel it would better placed in our Members Lounge, which is for regularly posting members and where perhaps more adult themed things can be shared, with a suitable warning in the topic title. Only people who regularly post on topic here have access to that section of course!
