Are you looking for a place to get constructive criticism on your work?

Are you looking for a place to have serious discussions about certain characters, pairings and/or events that have happened or might happen in your favorite fandoms?

Fiction Haven is the place for you. We are all about helping each other out. This isn't a place for flaming and bashing. It's all about getting the advice or help you need to improve. Let's face it we all need feedback now and again. Fiction Haven is the place to get that feedback.



1. If you are looking for a beta reader or proofreader for a story you are working on. Go here. There you will find a listing of volunteers who have kindly offered their services to help out fellow writers. Free free to post your story to the general community if you are just looking for general advice.

2. You are free to advertise or pimp your stories here just make sure to use the lj-cut. All ratings and all pairings are welcomed here. Just make sure all stories have the proper ratings and warnings. If a story contains a spoiler or possibly offensive material please be courteous and warn everyone in the summary or author's notes.

By the same token feel free to rec good stories you read to members of the community. We are always on the look out for goodfic. So sharing goodfic is most welcomed.

3. Everyone is welcomed to make post about plotbunnies and to have discussions on various fandom related topics. If you have a story idea and want help flushing it out by all means share with us. However, we don't want to hear about your crappy day at school or work. We don't care what you had for breakfast and what not. If you post rubbish it will be deleted and you can and will be banned.

4. No flaming, no character bashing, no pairing bashing. We are here to be open-minded not cut someone down because they have different views. Let's try to be respectful and courteous please.

5. Challenges will be posted monthly all fandoms and originals are welcomed. Only one entry per person is allowed. No Real Person Based Fiction is allowed sorry. The winners will be chosen by the members of the community via poll. All rules for each challenge will be posted with the challenge as well as possible prizes.

If you have any questions feel free to ask your mods ariyanaforever and aiffe.
