SPN Dean girl
Hello, and welcome to my LJ.  I write Free! (Makoharu) and Supernatural (Destiel) fanfic, which can be found here on AO3. In the past I have written Doctor Who (mostly Ten/Donna) fic, and Smallville (Chlark and Clex) fic.

Fandom: Supernatural
Rating: G
Genre: Angst

Note: I don't usually post my Destiel stuff over here, but since I wrote this as one of my "in memoriam" fics, I thought I'd go ahead and post it here too.

Written on the seventh anniversary of my soulmate's death.

This is from Amazon KDP (the standard self-publishing program):

Pornography
We don't accept pornography or offensive depictions of graphic sexual acts.
Offensive Content
What we deem offensive is probably about what you would expect.


This is from the new "Worlds" program:

Pornography: We don't accept pornography or offensive depictions of graphic sexual acts.
Offensive Content: We don’t accept offensive content, including but not limited to racial slurs, excessively graphic or violent material, or excessive use of foul language.


You can see there's not much difference. There is plenty of slash and smut up on Amazon (though they generally refuse to publish incest and underage material), so there's no reason to assume yet that slash and NC-17 material will automatically be excluded from the "Worlds" program (unless there's something I've missed, which is possible). Basically it will probably come down to A. the content guidelines each license holder provides, and B. how Amazon applies its extremely vague guidelines to this particular program.

Writing in progress
Unfiltered post. Wow, this is huge:

"Amazon announced a new publishing platform today called Kindle Worlds, which will give both established authors and aspiring fan fiction writers the chance to earn royalties based on their work."

So far there are only three licenced shows (Gossip Girls, Pretty Little Liars, and Vampire Diaries), but the list will presumably grow. This will include both commissioned works (for which Amazon acts as a publisher) and self-published works. What this might do to the world of free fanfiction I won't speculate. There currently seem to be no limits on content imposed, but I wouldn't be surprised if some materialized at some point.

"The new Kindle Worlds platform will enable any author to publish stories based on these characters and then make them available for purchase through the Kindle Store. Amazon will then pay royalties both to the author of the fan fiction and the original rights holder. The standard author’s royalty rate – for fiction that is at least 10,000 words in length – will be just over a third (35 percent) of net revenue."

ETA: There will be content guidelines. From the Amazon page: World Licensors have provided Content Guidelines for each World, and your work must follow these Content Guidelines. We strongly encourage you to read the Content Guidelines before you commit the time and effort to write.

And this is a bit of verbiage that is somewhat worrisome, although I doubt it will disturb many fanfic writers: We will also give the World Licensor a license to use your new elements and incorporate them into other works without further compensation to you.

Actually liked this Who episode, which was a rare and nice thing. I posted a loooong set of thoughts over at TWOP, and thought I'd repost them here as well. Spoilers for "The Crimson Horror" behind cut:

I'm looking forward to the final episode of this, and hoping I can lay hands on it and watch it before I'm utterly spoiled (I know Tumblr in particular will be a mass of spoilerish gifs). Thoughts and speculations behind cut (SPOILERS for the show, do not read if you haven't seen the show yet):
