Submissions - Fanfic

Why don’t you host fanfiction on the site?

While it is possible to create an archive here on the site or host stories here if authors would like to, many authors would prefer to keep their stories hosted on their original locations, especially if they already have an established reader base, have quite a lot of chapters, or would just prefer to keep their fics in one or two locations. (ie, FFNET, AO3 or personal archives).

Can I recommend someone else’s story?

Yes absolutely. The initial idea of this site was to build a recommendation list of stories that have been nominated by the readers.

Do I have to ask an author’s permission to recommend their fic?

No it’s not a mandatory requirement. As the site links to where the stories are already archived, it’s not taking anyone’s work away from them. However, it would be a nice gesture to let an author know you’ve recommended their story!

I know of this brilliant Thor movie fic but Loki isn’t the main character. Can I still submit it?

Yes. Although this site is Loki-centric, it embraces all things related to the Thor movie-verse.

Also if the story is Avengers based and Loki is a character within the story, then yes.  Loki doesn’t have to be the central character to a story, as long as he is one of the key characters in a story and overall the fic meets the criteria.

Isn’t it a bit unfair to expect stories to meet a checklist of requirements to be listed here?

No. I don’t. I’m truly sorry if anyone is offended by the requirements, and I don’t wish to beat down on anyone’s writing ability – gods know my own writing is deeply flawed (thus you won’t see my fics here!) But there is no point in listing any and all Loki fanfic here. Between FFNET and AO3, the open door policy is already covered, and it’s very simple to find Loki-centric stories on these archives just by using the search filters. It is, however, slightly more frustrating to filter the well written stories from the not-so-polished fics.

When I stumbled into this fandom, I spent a lot of time sifting through armloads and armloads of stories that I couldn’t adhere to. For some, the characterisation or storyline was too off-key, for others the poor formatting or lack of proofreading made the stories difficult to follow… It became quite defeating after a while and I probably missed dozens of really incredible stories simply because I fell into an apathetic auto-pilot mode after a while, where I began seizing stories at random in the hope of finding a diamond.

That is why I decided a directory of  Loki fanfic recs would be beneficial not just to myself, but to others who would like to spend their lunch break reading great fic rather than searching for it.

Of course, not everyone shares the same opinion on what a ‘great’ fic is, which is why there are guidelines to cover the basics, and then readers have the option to submit their own recommendations for consideration.

Where are stories hosted?

The fanfiction found here is linked to the external websites where they’re originally hosted such as FF.NET and AO3, Tumblr, their own private archive… Where ever. However if an author would like their story hosted here, this can be arranged.
