A little PSA for people who use AO3…
Gen refers to fic that is not focused on romance. If your fic is not a romance fic, please give it this tag.
Other refers to fic that is focused on romance, but is not specifically male/female, male/male, or female/female (like an OT3 (ship involving 3 people), a ship involving characters that are not male or female, etc). IT IS NOT FOR PLATONIC RELATIONSHIPS. IT IS FOR ROMANTIC ONES. please for the love of all that is holy do not tag your family-relationship-centered fics as “other” you are going to give people a HEART ATTACK.
“Character/Character” is for romantic pairs. “Character & Character” is for platonic relationships like friendship, family, etc. Please do not tag family-centered or adult-and-minor-centered platonic character relationships as character/character for the love of all that is holy
The E rating is for smut and literally nothing else (unless you have other unusual reasons to rate it E–I’ve seen people apply it to non-smut fics as a deterrent to keep minors away from it, but keep in mind it’ll make it so people who are trying to avoid smut will not find your fic). Your fic that has a lot of graphic violence but no sexual content does not need an E rating.
The M rating is for fics that would basically be rated R if they were movies, and may contain graphic violence, some sexual content, and generally more serious subject matter than you would typically show a teenager. However, if your fic is almost entirely smut, please just give it an E rating.
Also, when you post a fic, you WILL want to give it a rating, or else AO3 will assume you’re probably posting smut and will warn everybody who clicks on your fic that it may contain adult content. If you don’t want that on your fic that contains no adult content at all, please just give it the proper rating instead of not rating it at all.
this post brought to you by PLEASE LEARN HOW THE TAGGING SYSTEM ON THIS WEBSITE WORKS YOU ARE GOING TO GIVE EVERYONE A HEART ATTACK
ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING I FORGOT TO MENTION!
“Creator Chose Not to Archive Warnings” means that at least one or more of the archive warnings (that is, “Major Character Death,” “Graphic Depictions of Violence,” “Rape/Non-Con,” or “Underage”) DOES apply to your story, and you’re choosing not to say which one it is. If you select this option, AO3 will put a warning on the fic that potential readers have to click through.
“No Archive Warnings Apply” means that none of the aforementioned archive warnings apply to your fic.
THESE ARE NOT THE SAME THING. IF YOUR FIC DOES NOT HAVE ANYTHING MAJOR THAT NEEDS TO BE WARNED FOR, PLEASE SELECT “NO ARCHIVE WARNINGS APPLY.”

i said the ranking system guys not their lifestyle im going to lose it
the fuck is a warrior cat
someone’s going to die today and it sure as fuck is not going to be me
Would the time zones become the clans or would it just be randomly assigned
it’s the ranking system. the leader is the president. it’s one clan. we’re one clan can’t you fucking read i’m this close to bursting into tears
ok but what about other countries? would there be americaclan and canadaclan and stuff?
it does say US government system on the original post. you saw that, right? you read the post? the US? just america?
wait does that mean the president rules until someone else comes along and wrecks their shit?
i mean, yeah. until that motherfucker dies he’s leader, that’s how wc works. kill your leader, start a riot & shut the fuck up im so stressed
I, for one, do not think trump should get nine lives
neither should tigerstar but guess what
Isn’t this just a monarchy? Or a dictatorship?
it’s the warrior cats ranking style that’s what it is
hey @tophat-octopus trying to hide this stupid question in the tags. what do you think a vice president is
what are two legs considered?
youre just like the guy who asked what cats would be. twolegs are people we just wouldn’t use that term??? im
probably a dumb question but what about rogues and loners
rogues arent even a part of the clan ranking system i do not think i can handle this thread much longer
what about other government officials? are they just warriors? or would they not exist??
thEYRE WARRIORS. THEY DONT EXIST I CANNOT DO THSI ANYMORE
why the fuck is firefox tweeting abt warrior cats
tweeting? i’m tweeting? tweeting? this is Twitter? huh? is this fucking Twitter?
This post has so much to unpack but let’s just burn the whole fucking suitcase
we are already living in the cyberpunk future and i know this because within a span of 3 days we went from this tweet:
to thousands of people making phony images and replying to them with their passionate desire to have them as a tshirt to overload the bots with nonsense and junk and send out warnings to shoppers like this:
and now we even have people replying to pictures of baby yoda with “i want this on a tshirt” knowing how ravenous disney is being with copyright in hopes to get the stores taken down altogether
i dont know what it is about stuff like this and the whole turn mei into a symbol of hk protesters thing but, its really reassuring for some reason
