| What is DBZ-Fanfics? |
DBZ-Fanfics is a group created specifically for the readers and writers of Dragonball and Dragonball Z fanfiction. In this group you will find fanfics held on DeviantArt and links to great DBZ stories that are housed on other sites, recommendations and reviews on DBZ fanfics, and monthly drabble contests.
Why join DBZ-Fanfics?
If you like reading or writing fanfiction, then this is a great community to belong to! You can find something new you haven’t read yet, enter the monthly contests, and find others within the fandom.
When you join, please put the group icon in your journal
Pairings and Genres
Here at DBZ-Fanfics we like to cover as much of the fandom as possible, so all pairings and genres are acceptable. Because we know everyone has different tastes, each month there will be at least one review on a het pairing fic, at least one review on a yaoi pairing fic, as well as the occasional review on a yuri pairing fic.
Fics don't necessarily need a pairing, though. We have a 'no pairing' folder, so if your story fits into that, feel free to add it!
What do you mean by review?
By review, we mean that the reviewer (for now one of the admins) will pick a story they thought was really good, and will simply write why they think this fic should be read by others. A link to the story will be included in the journal, as well as the pairing(s) involved, the rating and any warnings.
Each month we will hold a drabble contest, either based on a particular character or a particular theme. At the end of the month members will vote for a winning drabble.
Can I submit my own stories to the gallery?
If they’re on dA, then sure! If you would like to contribute to the group’s gallery, click on the ‘contribute’ button, and submit it into the right category in the group’s gallery.
The gallery is organized according to pairings, so please submit your fic into the correct pairing (just choose the main pairing in the fic). If you find that a pairing is missing, contact an admin and we will add it for you
Can I submit art here too?
Because this is a club dedicated to the fanfiction side of things, we’re actually going to limit the art submitted to pictures that were inspired by a specific piece of fanfiction. If you submit a piece of art, please make sure that in your own author’s comments you have a link to the fic that inspired your piece.
Could I review a story I thought was really good?
Sure! If you’ve read a story that you’re crazy about, feel free to write a short review on the story and send it to the group in a NOTE. We will then add it to the next journal along with your icon.
Reviews need to include:
The title of the story
A link to the story
The main pairing(s)
A brief account of why you think the story is a good read
The stories don't have to be complete, either. If there's a fic you're currently following, feel free to give us a review for it. Likewise, if there's a dead fic that you still think deserves recognition, tell us!
Are there any rules?
Here at DBZ- Fanfics we just ask that you be courteous to all other members. You don't have to like every pairing/genre/story, but we ask that you respect the work of all authors, and do not flame any fics. However, polite constructive criticism that can help authors improve is absolutely fine.
This group is affiliated with the DBZ Fanfic Salon found here z8.invisionfree.com/DBZ_Fanfic….. The Salon is a great place to discuss DBZ, DBZ artwork and DBZ fanfiction with other fans.
If you have a group or club on dA and would like DBZ-Fanfics to be affiliated, please send a NOTE to the group.
This group is all about supporting the fanfiction side of the DBZ fandom, so help show your support to the authors out there by joining this group!
