Fictional Person Slash (RPS), Femslash and Gen fiction centered on actors from The Lord of the Rings movies. We also accept fiction with crew members and alternate universes.

Heterosexual content is fine as long as it's not the main or sole focus of the story.
NOT ACCEPTED

Stories shorter than 500 words. Collections of related drabbles or ficlets are accepted if they come in an single package.

A main pairing of two Original Characters (OCs). OCs are welcome but the main relationship has to have one canonical character. Random orcs, ents, and unspecified Nazgūl are exempt from this ruling.

Crossovers. Middle-earth is complicated enough without having even more characters show up!

Purely heterosexual fanfiction.

The archivists retain the right to ban authors who plagiarize.

  • Teenage Audience. The language is mild, although it can contain a couple of swear words. There can be kissing and mild violence.
  • Mature Audience. For adults only. Contains sex and/or violence in some detail, but the focus is more on the feelings of the characters than on the acts themselves.
  • Adult Audience. Contains very graphic sex and/or violence.

WARNINGS - Use them!

  • Rape: Consummated sex that is fully against one character's will.
  • Non-Consensual Sexual Situations: If it's not clear to the reader that both characters want it.
  • Incest: Use if the characters are closely related, such as father/son or brother/brother. If they're cousins or less, it's up to you.
  • BDSM: Covers bondage/discipline, dominance/submission, sadism/masochism. If it's non-consensual add that warning too.
  • Graphic Violence: For very intense, explicit, and/or disturbing.
  • Character Death: If it is non-canon. You don't need to warn people that Boromir dies, but if you're going to snuff young Pippin, you should use this warning.
