{sitename} Submission Rules

Submission Rules

  1. This archive is exclusively for fiction written about Rory Gilmore and Logan Huntzberger and their relationship. All stories submitted must deal with Rory, Logan and their relationship. While stories don't need to be exclusively about their relationship, stories must revolve around these two characters. A warning must be included if there is another pairing besides Rory and Logan.
  2. We reserve the right to not validate or delete a story or chapter that we find does not meet the archive’s quality standards.  If this is the case, you will generally get an email from us notifying you of our decision.  Above all, we value the quality of our archive, and will periodically clean the archive of stories that might not fully meet our standards.
  3. Please submit your stories in Arial font size 10.  You will be asked to correct this before your story is validated.
  4. Illusive will submit a disclaimer for you, so you do not need to add one yourself.
  5. There is a section for you to add your author's note at the top of your chapter. Please DO NOT add it in the body of your story. Your story may be rejected until you submit it correctly.
  6. PLAGARISM WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. If we have proof that you have plagiarized a story, that story will be deleted from the archive, as well as their other stories, and their account suspended. If a reader is aware of a story being plagiarized, you are encouraged to come forward to one of the site administrators. Your identity will be kept anonymous.
  7. Stories must be submitted to the proper category.  If there is an appropriate sub-category, DO NOT add your story to the main category.  The submission form allows you to choose multiple categories for your story, and we worked very hard to add that functionality for you.
  8. Please DO NOT add your story to the Featured Story or Classics category. Those categories are reserved for Featured and Classic Stories ONLY.  As site administrators, we reserve the right to choose the stories to be added to these categories at our discretion.
  9. Titles and summaries must be kid friendly.  No exceptions. 
  10. "Please read", "Untitled", etc. are not acceptable titles or summaries. There is no need to add Rogan or Sophie to the summary. You will be asked to edit this out before your story is verified.
  11. Actor/actress stories are not permitted...not even if they're visiting an alternate reality.
  12. Correct grammar and spelling are expected of all stories submitted to this site.  The site administrators are not grammar Nazis.  However, the site administrators reserve the right to request corrections in submissions with a multitude of grammar and/or spelling errors.  If such a request is ignored, the story will be deleted.
  13. All stories must be rated correctly and have the appropriate warnings.  All adult rated stories are expected to have warnings.  After all, they wouldn't have that rating if there wasn't something to be warned about!  The site administrators recognize that there is an audience for these stories, but please respect those who do not wish to read them by labeling them appropriately.  Please note: Stories containing adults having sex with minors are strictly forbidden. 
  14. Stories with multiple chapters should be archived as such and NEVER as separate stories.  Upload the first chapter of your story, then go to Manage Stories in your account to add additional chapters. If you have trouble with this, please contact a site administrator and we'll be happy to help you.
  15. As much as possible, spoiler warnings are expected on all stories. For categories with serialized content, such as series of books or television series, spoilers are mandatory for the current season and/or most recent part. An appropriate spoiler warning to place in your summary would be: Spoilers for 701: The Long Morrow. DO NOT do anything like this: Spoilers for the one where Logan gives Rory a Rocket.
Submissions found to be in violation of these rules may be removed and the author's account suspended at the discretion of the site administrators and/or moderators.  The site administrators reserve the right to modify these rules as needed.
