If a claim is presented against us alleging that the Work is an infringement or the Work otherwise violates or adversely affects the rights of third parties, we are hereby authorized, at our election: to negotiate, compromise, or settle such claim, subject to your approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed; or defend the institution of any action there under at your expense.

TERMS OF SERVICE PURSUANT TO TWCS LIBRARY

READING AND SUBMISSIONS

By reading and submitting your stories to TWCS Library, you understand that all information (stories, images, links, notes, et cetera) contained within stories and/or pages are the sole responsibility of the person who posted them. TWCS is not responsible for anything an author may upload onto TWCS Library.

By using this site, you may be exposed to offensive, indecent or questionable/objectionable material. This is where the use of "warnings" comes into use, and we cannot be responsible for your interpretation or feelings about certain issues. If you believe warnings have been misplaced or a story is lacking a proper warning, please notify TWCS administration immediately.

By submitting to TWCS Library, you understand and agree that TWCS Library shall not be liable to you or any third-party for any modification, suspension or discontinuance of service. TWCS Library is not responsible for loss of material. Be sure to keep copies of your stories elsewhere.

By registering, you agree to The Writer's Coffee Shop Terms of Service

SUBMISSION RULES

1. All submissions must be accompanied by a complete disclaimer. If a suitable disclaimer is not included, the site administrators reserve the right to add a disclaimer. Repeat offenders may be subject to further action up to and including removal of stories and account. Sample Disclaimer Disclaimer: All publicly recognizable characters, settings, etc. are the property of their respective owners. The original characters and plot are the property of the author. The author is in no way associated with the owners, creators, or producers of any media franchise. No copyright infringement is intended. 2. Stories must be submitted to the proper category. Please choose first the appropriate Main Category and the proper Subcategory for your story. The submission form allows you to choose multiple categories for your story, and we worked very hard to add that functionality for you. Please do NOT add your story multiple times!' Please note the following distinctions when choosing your subcategories. A story can either be All Human, Alternate Universe, or Canon. It should not be a combination of any of these. a. Canon: Does not refer to character relationships/pairings, but rather to the order of events. Missing scenes, or fan fictions that retell the original story from another POV fall into this category. b. Alternate Universe: The events do not follow the timeline or pattern of the original Canon. The events may have a different outcome (alternate ending) or differ in any other way from the Canon events and timeline. c. All Human: A distinction that implies 'Alternate Universe, but goes a step further. This label applies to stories whose Canon includes supernatural or non-human characters. In an 'All Human' fan fiction, said non-human characters, would be human. 3. Please use good judgment with story names and summaries. Please refrain from NC-17 language and nudity in banners. 4. "Please read", "Untitled", etc. are not acceptable titles or summaries. 5. A number of authors have requested that fans refrain from writing fan fiction based on their work. Therefore submissions will not be accepted based on the works of Diana Gabaldon, P.N. Elrod, Raymond E. Feist, Terry Goodkind, Laurell K. Hamilton, Anne McCaffrey, Robin McKinley, Irene Radford, Anne Rice, and J.R. Ward. For a more complete list of authors who support and do not support fan fiction please follow this link: http://fanlore.org/wiki/Professional_Author_Fanfic_Policies . 6. Plagiarism will not be tolerated. If the work you are submitting is not yours it will be removed and you will be banned from the site. 7. 'Real Person Fiction' stories (Fiction that focuses around actors, celebrities, public figures and athletes) are not permitted...not even if they're visiting an alternate reality. 8. 'Original Fiction' is allowed. By submitting Original Fiction, you represent that you own all rights associated with the submission. 9. Correct grammar and spelling are expected of all stories submitted to this site. The site administrators are the grammar police. However, the site administrators reserve the right to request corrections in submissions with a multitude of grammar and/or spelling errors. If such a request is ignored, the story will be deleted. 10. All stories must be rated correctly and have the appropriate warnings. All adult rated stories are expected to have warnings. After all, they wouldn't have that rating if there wasn't something to be warned about! The site administrators recognize that there is an audience for these stories, but please respect those who do not wish to read them by labeling them appropriately. We at TWCS do not condone any law breaking activities. We do permit people writing about them as long as it is written in a tasteful matter. We do reserve the right to remove stories at the discretion of the administration team. 11. Stories with multiple chapters should be archived as such and NEVER as separate stories. Upload the first chapter of your story, then go to Manage Stories in your account to add additional chapters. If you have trouble with this, please contact the site administrator or ask a friend to help you. 12. As much as possible, spoiler warnings are expected on all stories. For categories with serialized content, such as series of books or television series, spoilers are mandatory for the current season and/or most recent part. An appropriate spoiler warning to place in your summary would be: Spoilers for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. DO NOT use anything like this: Spoilers for the one where Spock dies. Submissions found to be in violation of these rules may be removed and the author's account suspended at the discretion of the site administrators and/or moderators. The site administrators reserve the right to modify these rules as needed.
