- The Ksares Archive is only for writers subscribed to the Ksares mailing list.
To subscribe, mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Fic posted to the list is not automatically archived.
Writers must email their stories to Adrastea at
Attachments as text files, Word documents, rich text files are preferred.
- Ksares has exclusive archiving rights to submitted stories.
Please don't submit fic posted to other lists with automatic archiving policies (e.g., Joxerotica),
unless that list is not within our fandom.
This is to keep down on crossposts, a breach of netiquette.
Fic submitted to Ksares can also be posted on personal pages, or on independent archives not affiliated with a mailing list, like Ashera's Adult Xena Fan Fiction Archive.
- All stories must be edited by the author for grammatical errors and spelling mistakes.
If grammar's not your strong suit, find a
beta-reader who will help you (a beta reader is a person who volunteers to edit a story).
Also, run your work through both a grammar-check and a spell-check before you submitting it.
For further help with grammar and punctuation, go here.
- Stories must be formatted according to established fanfic conventions.
This means each fic must be single-spaced, but double-spaced between paragraphs, with no indenting at the start of a new paragraph.
- Stories should not depict real people, including but not exclusive to the actors from the shows (Kevin Smith, Michael Hurst, etc).
Stories following "Yes, Virginia" and its sequel may be exceptions, if the author remains very carefully within the perimeters established by these episodes.
We reserve the right to delete fic that exceeds these boundaries.
- Slash, gen, and het fiction featuring characters from the shows Hercules: the Legendary Journey, Xena: Warrior Princess and Young Hercules, as well as classical mythology is welcome.
Fiction featuring other characters played by Kevin Smith (Ares, Iphicles, Bacchus, Timor from HtLJ, XWP, YH; John Lawless from Lawless; Ricky de la Cruz from F/X; Lawrence Hayes from Desperate Remedies, etc.) is also welcome.
- There are no length requirements or restrictions for stories.
