[The Nagisa and Shizuma LiveJournal Community! ♥]
If you're here, you are probably a fan of Strawberry Panic or a fan of either Nagisa or Shizuma... or perhaps both? That, or you want like to learn more about them. This community is for fans to gather and discuss the series/couple/girls, share fanfiction, sites, fanart, icons or whatever else you can come come up with. The main focus of this community is on Shizuma and Nagisa (as a pairing, as friends, even solo) and we would greatly appreciate it if we could stay on that topic! Though, we're not against the occasional discussing of the general series or other characters once in a while. We're very agreeable people here.
The moderators of this community are pyratesss, and omeiensis. If you have any questions or complaints about the community, please direct them thatta way. Contact info can be found at their ljs, of course. If it's about anything within the Strawberry Panic universe or about lj in general (cuts, for example), you can probably just direct it to the community. Someone should be able to answer you, and your question may have already even been asked. In any case, if it's a serious issue, you should be able to get a hold of one of them~
= If you are new to the community and have a question about the series please read the entire first page of entries to see if your question has been asked and answered recently. Not only will this save you time, it'll save the entire community the problem of answering the same question over and over again.
= Introductory posts are allowed.
= This community is open to art mediums of all types, all genres and all ratings. All that we ask of you is that you provide a warning and lj-cuts where needed with adult material. For anything rated R or NC-17, we ask that you please place under friends-lock, and do not forget to label it.
= This community is, obviously, very gay friendly. Go figure, huh? So we won't tolerate any trolling, bashing or bigot-like actions within the community. Break this rule, and you're banned. No questions asked.
= Please, /please/ do not start petty agruments and drama with other members. This is alot like the rule above, and the same applies. Don't break it, or you'll be banned. Don't drag your personal drama and grudges into this community. If someone does something wrong, one of our mods will warn them; there is no need for the entire community to go up in arms and begin bashing the person who is in the wrong. If they are in the wrong, then warned, and do not fix the problem, then they, and the problem, will be removed. Please let the mods do their jobs.
= Though we are quite flexible here, our main focus /is/ leaning toward the girls as a couple, so we'd appreciate it if you didn't post anything too Nagisa/Tamao, Shizuma/Miyuki, Nagisa/Chiyo, and so on and so forth. There is a general community for Strawberry Panic (strawberrypanic), so such couples can be discussed there. However, we would accept something like Nagisa/Tamao/Shizuma, etc. Just try to stick to the Shizuma/Nagisa, if you can.
= Posting of fanart, fanfiction, wallpapers, icons or whatever you've made is highly encouraged here. We love to see what you have to share with us! However, if you are posting something that /isn't/ yours, please add a small disclaimer, or even tell who it /does/ belong to.
= We're always happy to give credit. If you see something here without credit, and you know who the credit goes to, then let us all know.
= No spoilers, if it can be helped. Any entry that you make, be it a question, a random theory about where the plot is going, summaries, etc. must be put behind an LJ-cut if it is a big-time spoiler. If you don't know how to lj-cut, go here and learn. If you are not sure if your question is a potential spoiler or not, please take the safe route and lj-cut it anyway. There are those among us who may not be finished Strawberry Panic as you are, and so please be considerate of the newbies. No one wants a major series plot ruined on them.
= Any fanart, wallpapers, icons or screenshots that you would like to showcase to the community must also be put behind an LJ cut. Especially if it's a graphic heavy post. Lots of people have a fast internet connection, but people in this community may not, so have some consideration, and lj-cut please. Failing to follow this will get you a warning, and you will be banned if we must /repeatedly/ warn you, time and time again.
= Fanfiction must abide by the following guidelines:
- Lj cut!
- Before the lj-cut, it would be great if you would tell us a little about your fiction. You can include, title, author, rating, pairing (if applicable), genre(s), summary or comments. You could even include a word count, if you'd like, just as long as you tell us a few things about your writing and give us a rating! We accept writing rated from G to NC-17 here, but if you give a rating of R or NC-17, please explain to us (in your summary) what warrants this rating.
= Please keep this community on topic at all times! We're here for the Shizuma/Nagisa love, and the Strawberry Panic love, and therefore anything that is radically off topic will get a warning and a deletion of post (if you do not delete the post yourself after a warning).
= BE NICE! Don't flame another community member for any reason whatsoever. We will not tolerate trolling, drama, or any of that. We're all here, we can all get along, and there is no need to ruin this community with petty crap. So just get along, okay? Cause trouble, and you're out.
= /Please/ do not claim other peoples art or writing as your own. If we find out that you've taken claim for something that is not yours, we will ban you. No exceptions to this rule. This, however, does not apply to a fanart dump. Just do not put your name on someone's work, that's all. A disclaimer or no name, then we know it isn't being claimed as your own.
= Please DO NOT comment on any of these entries with an advertisement for your community. Please do not make a post advertising your community. If you want to /affiliate/ with miatorlove, contact one of the mods, and we will put up your link. If you're here to advertise, leave. There are lots of other places for you to do that; don't do it here.
= Our two moderators reserve the right to change any and all rules as they see fit. However, we make the promise to announce any and all rule changes to the community. You will all be informed.
= Breaking of these rules will result in warning. Some rule breaking may result in banning. Repeated rule breaking means banning. Therefore, obey our rules, and you'll do fine.
- If you've made anything used in this community, and you have not been credited, please tell us. Even if a work just has no credit, and you know who made it, then give us a shout.
- All mediums of art work shown in the community belong to those who claim them until proven otherwise.
