Hi Skyť of Nyx! Welcome to Portkey!

In response to your first question, it's okay if you mention Ron/Luna (that's the R/L you're referring to, right?).

And in response to your second question, it's fine if you do songfics. They're accepted at Portkey. Just as long as you have story and not just lyrics. wink.gif

Hope that helps.

Nousia's right. One more note though: if by "R/L" you meant "Ron/Lavender", that's allowed as a sideship. Sideships do not need to be confined to Draco/Ginny or Ron/Luna. Here's the rule about ships in Portkey's hosted stories.

Hi! Call me Caroline. :)




My story has Harry falling for someone other than Hermione. They get get together at the end of the story. Is that okay?

(MODS' NOTE: Also applies to other characters in Portkey's ships)



The fic starts with H/Hr... but can Harry be with another girl/woman in the middle of the story, and then get back to Hermione again? Or does he have to stick with Hermione all along?
I'm just asking, because I really want my story to fit in here! innocent.gif *love H/Hr*

Sincerely,
quizgirl

I'm pretty sure that that's absolutely fine. As long as Harry and Hermione are romantically involved by the end of story, you're not breaking any rules. smile.gif

Hi! Call me Rachael. :)




It's fine, as long as the pairing ends H/H and there are no graphic [love] scenes of H/OFC.

ADDING THIS:
H/OFC = the "anti-PK" ship. I guess OFC means "orig fictional character".

Plus the story should have far more H/H moments than the "anti-PK" ship. smile.gif

NAPPA's answer applies to this question:
Can I submit a story that only has R/LL or D/G or L/J, but no H/H?
-gal-texter



I have a question about the submission criterias. I read them very carefully and understood that Harry/Hermione cannot be broken or contradicted. I have a Ron/Luna fic which I'd like to submit to the site, but the story doesn't have any other ship except R/L. Is that acceptable? While my story certainly doesn't contradict H/Hr, they are not together nonetheless.

Don't get me wrong, I am a H/Hr shipper, but I grew tired from people blaming us that all R/L fics have H/Hr in them, which made me write a fic in which R/L is the only ship.

To sum it up - will I be allowed to submit a fic in which R/L is the only ship? Thanks in advance!

Hi! Call me Diana. :)




MOD NOTE: merging this into a related thread.
~gal-texter / Pen May2008


Hi there,
I liked to know whether this rule:

QUOTE
Ships contained in the Fanfiction:
The submitted Fanfiction must fall into one of four categories:
A. Harry/Hermione ( * )
B. Lily/James ( * )
C. Draco/Ginny
D. Ron/Luna
( * ) The star next to a ship indicates a ship that may not be broken in any stories. This means that this ship cannot be broken, even if the story isn't classified in that ship. So in Draco/Ginny fanfictions a romantic pairing between Ron/Hermione may not occur. Ships marked with a star will not be contradicted in any stories, and graphical scenes between characters that contradict a ship listed above are not accepted. This means that graphical scenes between Ron/Hermione may not occur as it contradicts Harry/Hermione. Graphical scenes between characters that do not contradict a ship with a star next to it are acceptable.


still counts if in a FanFic Tonks is transformed to Hermione and has sex with Ron?
How graphical can a kiss be between those two? After that rule I did expect in a Fanfic I can't write how they make out nor how passionate they kiss or even describe a French-kiss through and through. Am I wrong with this thinking? It would be nice to know.

Thank's in advance.

Geepers! I didn't notice this question before.

While on the surface it may seem alright, it's not. Not if

1) we don't know from the beginning that it's Tonks
2) It has to be a mild in nature. IE : Ron and Tonks!Hermione kiss, and the scene ends. Nothing explicit.

The NC17 rating on the site is reserved for H/Hr, R/L, L/J and D/G. Any other R or NC17 rating between other people can be hinted at, but not shown. We do make exceptions to that for characters that aren't that major. I recall a wonderful work of H/Hr, that had a few chapters dedicated to Sirius/Original Female Character. And features one such scene.

It's generally more flexible if the people involved aren't PK ship people.
