Hi, [community profile] housefic!

Two items of housekeeping tonight, no pun intended (but happily employed).

First, a big thank you to [personal profile] greenelsewhere for making a header for the community! Any member (or non-member, for that matter) is free to make a banner for the comm. The dimensions should be 960px by 300px, and as many as possible of the show's major characters should be represented. You can send your banner to [personal profile] zulu at zulu.fic @ gmail.com, and I will rotate them monthly (or other periodicity, depending on how many are submitted).

Second, take a look at our nested tag list! I'm quite proud of it. However, right now the tags are in alphabetical order, which might not be the most intuitive when readers are navigating. With that in mind, what would be your preferred order for the following top categories: genre, pairing, rating, threesome, and wordcount? Opinions solicited!

It's been great to see the stories posted. Much appreciation to our members!

If you have any concerns, suggestions, questions, etc., feel free to drop 'em in comments here.

Greetings and welcome to [community profile] housefic on Dreamwidth. What can I say, I can't go long on any journalling platform without a Housefic community. I don't expect this place to be high-traffic (certainly not at first), and therefore moderation will be very free and easy, as long as we're all getting along. The original community on livejournal is only a click away, but I am not affiliated with them. I've been running the mirror comm on insanejournal for about three years, however. (For definitions of "running" that include "posting my fic when I remember, and happily reading other fic that is posted".)

This community is for fic posts, fic recs, fic discussion posts, and fic head-bashing-against-the-wall-because-the-characters-won't-behave posts. Here at [community profile] housefic, we accept all pairings, all ratings, all genres, all crossovers, and yes, dare I say it, even RPF or RPS.

Given that, here's a basic code of conduct, just like your momma taught you before letting you loose on the internet.

  • All fic and longer posts should be cut for length.

  • Crossposting is always okay.

  • All fic should have appropriate headers. That means let the community know if you think you're going to squick or spoil them. The details are your responsibility. Please, think of the easily squicked! They think of you, and are kind of grossed out. Think of the spoiler-phobes! They think of you, and then wish the surprise hadn't been ruined.

  • A basic tag system is in place in the following format: genre: (gen, het, girlslash, boyslash); rating: (g, pg, r, nc17); wordcount: (drabble, under 1000, under 5000, under 10 000, under 20 000, under 50 000); pairing: (house/wilson, house/cuddy, house/cameron, house/foreman, etc.). Other tags, such as genre: crossover or genre: au are also available. If more tags are necessary (for instance, if I've missed a pairing), please let me know and it will be added.

  • All readers should READ THE HEADERS. Caveat lector. Remember, the scroll bar and the backbutton exist for your protection. Use them!

  • All discussion posts should cut for spoilers.

  • All fic posted here is considered publicly published. There is a possibility that concrit will be offered. Concrit != flames.

  • Those failing in their regularly scheduled upkeep of "general politeness" and "common sense" shall be regarded with disdain.

  • Have fun!

Questions, concerns, comments, etc., can be directed to any entry tagged [admin], or directly to [personal profile] zulu.

I hereby declare [community profile] housefic open for posting.

*cuts giant ribbon with giant scissors*

P.S., if anyone would like to make us a header, I will happily put it up there at the top of the community where it will be very pretty.
