    Would it be possible to rename the Fan Fiction section to another name - such as original writings; or your writings. I say this as there are currently within it several works by members which are not a form of fanfic and thus the name is rather misleading to newer members.
    If not maybe a separate section for original writings -

    There is already such a section for original works called "The Scribe's House". People just don't put their work in there.

    Although the Tales of TFF furthermore is somewhat original, it's in fanfic since I.R.'s the original creator of the storyline.

    he - missed it - but would not it be better sited in the writings section of the forum - that is where I looked for an original works section - just makes more sense to me

    Well it was originally intended as a House for people to gather and write and what not, so it works in that section. Plus everyone who's posted there doesn't seem to have a problem finding it.

    Although technically I should get some of my stuff moved there...hmm I'll have to once I've typed up chapter 1...

    I think fan fics is fine.

    I mean, the poems in Fan Poetry are original, why can't the ones in Fan Fiction? Its just a name that was decided on, and that was that. Work can still be original and in the fan fiction section.
