I will leave one warning, at my discretion.

Lj-Cut is a courtesy measure taken for members of the group with slower loading time.
It also gives everyone the option to view or not view a piece or pairing.

(You may make any comments, intros, or ask any question under the note header.)


This is an open community. Everyone is welcome here due to the large amount of general art. If a post is rated R or NC17, you agree upon entering the community that you will observe any laws that are applicable to you. You may not click on any R or NC17 artwork if you are under the legal viewing age. Artists are also responsible for following the rules of Live Journal as well as any other applicable laws when posting.

No rude comments IE: "Your art is ugly," ect. You will be banned and the comment will be deleted.

No nasty comments about ships that you don't participate in, everyone's pairings are welcome. Please Be Respectful.

If requested by an artist you may leave comments that apply to the work. I.E. : The nose is a little crooked or the shading could be a bit darker.

Mod Post-It

And feel free to post as much art as often as you'd like!

- Your Mod,


Rules are subject to change or update.
Any changes will be noted in a Mod post.

Work Safe

- A few of you have asked about Work Safe

Work Safe is a rating that tells you whether or not you can view the image at work or a public place.

For instance there may be a PG13/R drawing that is work safe because it's related to violence. But another PG13/R may not be, because of sexuality. Basically would seeing the image get someone into trouble if they were working? If it were you at work would you want your boss to know you were looking at said image.
