The goal of Anime Reality is to serve as an
fanfiction archive for stories written in the style of a reality series,
whether created by the author or adapted from television. We only accept
stories with permission from the original author and they may request to
remove their stories at any time. Stories will be posted at the
discretion of the site's staff, and submissions may be turned down for
any reason. Once posted, we will not modify stories for content reasons,
nor will we correct spelling or grammar.
At least half of the contestants must be
indisputably anime characters. This allows plenty of leeway for gray
series (like IGPX),
American cartoons and video game characters so long as the story's
not full of them.
If the story is unfinished and posted
episode-by-episode, the author must try to produce new
chapters/episodes in a reasonably timely manner. Every two weeks has
become the industry standard. Delays and unexpected cancellations
happen, and readers are willing to forgive them (for the most part),
but at least go in with the intention of finishing.
Either script format or novel narrative is
acceptable. However, neither format is an excuse for sloppiness.
Whatever format you use, there needs to be enough details and stage
directions to be able to picture the scene and bring it to life.
Spelling and grammar are important! We won't turn
you down because of a typo, but several of them will reflect badly
on your story and will make it less likely to be accepted.
We have a ratings system stolen from American
television, so don't refrain from sending a story because it has
strong language, themes, or is downright dirty. We won't publish
complete filth, but I'll pull out the TV-MA icon if a good story
Any reality format is allowable, but we highly
discourage any story where readers influence the story (like Big
Brother) or stories based more on talent than character interaction
(like Pop/"Insert Nationality Here" Idol). On the other hand,
original reality formats are highly encouraged.
This should go without saying, but it has to be your
story. If it was written by somebody else and you think it's
appropriate for the site, please tell the author about us, and/or
tell us about the author.
Being posted on this site does mean readership. We
will post updates on both the Anime Reality and First Agent main
pages, and a mailing list is in the works, but other advertising is
up to you. Do not complain if you don't get any response to your
stories; likewise, do not complain if it becomes a big hit, gets
Slashdotted, and you have 500 e-mails begging you for the next
This part's easy. Send a sample
firstname.lastname@example.org and request to be archived on the site. If I
like, we'll talk. Once you're in, you will send episodes to me, in HTML
format along with an episode title. Other issues, like content rating,
will also be worked out. For having a story posted, you will
automatically receive a link to your site, especially if your page has
extras like author notes or omake.
