Check out the catalog for a directory of fics from fellow writefags,
>Can I post NSFW fics?
Absolutely! There are no rules against NSFW text links.
>How should I post my fics?
Please, for the convenience of everyone involved, link to a host like Fanfiction.net, Pastebin or Google Docs rather than dumping your fics in text posts. This not only keeps the thread tidy (and keeps you from getting an infraction for spam), but it also provides a more permanent place to store your work.
>Can I add a fic I wrote to the catalog?
Sure! Check the catalog for the submission link. In there, you can find a link to a Google Form - fill out all the necessary information and it will be submitted for review automatically. Technology is incredible!
We're also looking to collect ideas for fanfics as a resource for stumped writers. Feel free to throw an idea out there; someone may choose to use it themselves!
Topic of the Thread:
Other than making pairings of lovers bump parts with one another, how do you make romance stories interesting?

Why is the Japanese competitive scene so comfy compared to the Smogon-drone infested playerbase of the west?
>best players in the world
>exclusively play official rules and on the real game Battle Spot ladders, only use showdown for testing/messing around
>take all formats seriously: singles, doubles, triples and rotations
>positive attitude towards adapting and trying new strategies
>positive attitude in regards to using laddering to practice
>no Smogon/Nugget Bridge equivalent to create a hivemind, chill on blogs and twitter
Meanwhile the west suffers from Smogon's terrible 2005-esque influences
>poor official rules scene outside of doubles
>almost completely ignore triples and rotations
>brainwashed by Smogon to think fan rules/6v6 singles is the only way to play
>brainwashed by Smogon to think simulators = competitive
>Smogon's awful ban culture creating a generation of scrubs who can't adapt
>negative attitude towards laddering (mostly only a showdown thing though)
I want to get out of this hell, it's embarrassing. After Japan dominating the fuck out of worlds this year it's about time to get things moving forward.
