    Can authors write their own fanfic?

    I would argue yes, considering I've done it. But say J. K. Rowling wrote a story about Harry and Ron in a gay romance and posted it somewhere. It's not cannon or anything...just for fun. Would that be a fanfic? Or just a non-cannon story? To me, I would consider it fanfic. It's not cannon and...

    Cover Art for Book

    So, I'm getting ready to self publish a book and I need some really simple cover art done. I don't have the money for a commission, but I'd be willing to trade a story for cover art and/or give a portion of sales. Here's my idea: In big bold letters at the top we see the title: Cityscape...

    Sex: A lesson in the art of using the five senses

    One thing that I was taught early on in my writing, is to try to use all the senses when describing something. And, I have found that sex is actually a great way to practice doing that. Good sex scenes use all the senses. There's always the obvious ones of site and sound, but there's much more...

    Video Game Idea "Displaced"

    I call it "Displaced" The premise is, about 100 years in the future, time travel has been invented, but the price for such inventions becomes too high when a mad man uses it to travel back in time to go on a killing spree using technology from his time. Where does he start? 1986. Fast forward...

    Bug/Site Problem: Phantom Message and SFW button doesn't work

    My account is telling me there's a message, but there's not. Also, my SFW button does nothing at the moment. Not sure if it's just me or everyone. Anyway, here's a pic of my message box and the Submission Message can still be seen in the corner:

    Expressing Embarrassment

    When writing humans, the typical blushing and turning of the head usually works pretty well for expressing that a character is embarrassed or flustered. However, with furry characters...blushing is a little harder, because, through their fur, you wouldn't be able to see them blushing. So, how...

    Creating Flesh: Building a Character 1: The Idea

    Alright, so I came up with this cool idea for a character and by day, she's a well mannered boss somewhere. She always dresses professionally: blouse, long sleeved jacket, long skirt or pants. She's the nicest boss, too, but she also doesn't put up with a lot of shit. But, when she gets home...

    Do you act out...

    Your action scenes? I sometimes do, I find it helps finalize a scene or maybe come up with something new. Maybe I act it out and decide it would be strange or too difficult for someone to do, and change it. But do any other writers here do it?

    But I'm nervous...(trouble with sex scenes)

    Right, so I've started on a sex scene for this novel I'm working on, and...I'm nervous. I don't know if it's because it's a hetero-sex scene or what? Anyone else get nervous when writing sex scenes?

I really just want the line art. but here's the description of her: a black leather, full body suit with bright red stripes at the hips, on the shoulders and one around her snout. The suit also features red goggles for her eyes and clear sheaths on the back for her...

    Please Properly Rate Your Artwork

    It violates the AUP if you don't, anyway, so do it. Someone of us have the filter on because we use the internet in public places and would get in trouble for some of the stuff that makes it through the content filter simply because someone was too freakin' lazy or doesn't know what "Mature" and...

    Color coded characters Anyone else do this. I've only been doing for a single universe and only with a handful of my characters, but each of them has a different color that they usually wear on their bodies all the time. I have kinda done it subconsciously and am curious if I'm the only one who...

    I don't know what to do. I've checked into a homeless shelter, but.....I REALLY could use a nice warm bed and a friend and a job. I feel so helpless.

    Alright, so AllFurFun in Spokane is returning in 2012. Registering at the forums is turning out to be a pain, and I figure I can talk about it here. I might go to this if time and money allow. I won't be in a suit or anything. Just me. Anyone else going?
