How to submit your fan fiction to the Fan Fiction folder:

Click "Submit."
Enter your Deviation title.
Choose category > Fan Art > Fan Fiction > Drama, General Fiction, Horror, Humor, Romance, Sci-Fi
Upload a file or Add Text.
Enter your Description.
Enter your Keywords.
Select Mature Content and Creative Commons options.

I should not have to scroll through six pages of the Literature category to find a single piece of original prose.
I am not disputing the legitimacy of Fan Fiction as an art form, or even as a form of literature. People write fan fiction for a living; they call it pastiche. It's notably prevalent in the Sherlock Holmes fandom. One of my favourite book series is basically glorified fan fiction.
But for the sake of my sanity, please, PLEASE use the appropriate DA category, fanfic writers. It was made just for you.

EDIT: And it's actually much easier now that the folders have been rearranged: You can get straight to Fan Fiction from Literature!
Don't mind me; I'm just airing a pet peeve.
But really, there is a fan fiction category on DA. It should be used. I should not have to trawl through heaps of Hetalia and Vocaloid and MLP to find original work in the folders intended for original work. It makes it very hard to find original work to request for my groups, which promote original work.

Use the damn folder.

o3o Ooh, good!
Actually, I need to update this. The arrangement has changed since I posted it, and I think you can actually get to the Fan Fiction folder under the Literature heading, now. Going to have to check up on it, though, because I don't post much fanfic.

Oh, good. ^^
I was feeling sort of snarky when I wrote it, so just ignore the angry bits. >>;

someone who agrees that there is way too much fanfiction in the litterature section. I am getting sick and tired of searching through pages and pages of bad hetalia fanfiction just to find original stories. It's gotten to the point that I don't even want to look anymore.

It's so nice to learn that I'm not the only one that feels this way.

Thank You! :clap:
