I try to follow this seriously because I've seen it work for me as a reader, but there is also the point of laughing out loud at the sarcastic tone it was written in.
The 27 Commandments of Fanfiction
1. Thou shalt not post a fic until it has been checked for grammar and spelling errors. The fanfiction gods hath given you a spellchecker on the computer for good reason. Use it. (My note: as much as I detest spellcheck- I've hear of cases where people meant to write shot and it wrote s-, its better than half the words being misspelled.)
2.Thou shalt not post a chapter of less than 100 words, unless it is a drabble. This displeases the masses.
3.Thou shalt not put author's notes in the middle of the story.
4.Thou shalt NEVER use text-speak in a fic, unless the characters are actually texting.
5.Thou shalt keep to one tense, and only one, throughout the story. Do not switch randomly.
6.Apply the above number 5 to POVs as well.
7. Thou shalt not get offended when someone makes fun of the crack pairing featured in your fanfiction. It probably is rather hilarious.
8.Thou shalt not use , ;, or :( in a fanfiction to show the emotion exhibited by a character.
9.Thou shall try-eth to keep characters in character!
10.Thou shall not treat every criticism as a flame.
11.The author's note is not a spot for your personal drama, and thou shalt not make it so.
12.Thou shalt not put any form of the phrase "first fic" in thy summary.
13. Thy created characters must not have names that exceed five syllables in length. Nor shall thy name have more than five words in length.
14. Thou shall not insert thyself into the story line as thyself or as a character- yes we know that you are in love with yourself and are very narcissistic, we just don’t want to read about how you end up with the main character.
15.If thou art writing a story that does not follow the original story line, point it out in the beginning.
16.Thou shall not make a person randomly smart or powerful unless stating a reason for the change (a good reason).
17.Thou shalt show and not tell.
18.Thou shalt not EVER use the phrase "I suck at summaries" in-est thine summary. This annoys thine readers.
19.Thou shalt not write the same way thou speak-est- writing is an art.
20.Thou shalt ALWAYS spell the word "okay" correctly. Using the letter "K" is an unacceptable compromise.
21. Thou shalt only use clichés when thou a) art writing a parody or b) find a new and interesting twist to make such clichés bearable to thine reader.
22. Thou shalt always separate dialogue from two separate speakers in two separate paragraphs. Otherwise thine readers shalt be confuse-ed.
23. Thou shalt not EVER make a chapter all one paragraph. THIS INFURIATES BOTH THINE READER AND THE FANFICTION GODS. They have given thee an ENTER key with good reason.
24. Thou shalt not write with thy caps lock on, it displeases the masses and causes thy readers to lose their vision and make angels weep.
25. Thou shalt know how to spell the character's names correctly before you writeth the fic. Misspelling the name of the main characters makes readers angry and distracts from the story.
26. Thou shalt not say in thine summary "summary inside". This shows lack of creativeness and infuriates the masses. The only exception is when a summary is cut short and a continuation of it lies inside.
27. Thou shall use paragraphs and space the story so it is not terrifyingly daunting to thine readers.
I really liked this game and I thought I could give it a shot. Here goes nothing:
List twelve of your favorite characters from your fandom, in no particular order.
1. Percy 2. Annabeth 3. Grover 4. Bianca 5. Nico 6. Thalia 7. Rachel 8. Beckendorf 9. Clarisse 10. Katie 11. Travis 12. Silena
Q1: Have you ever read a Six/Eleven fic? Do you want to? A: Thalia and Travis? No and nor do I want to! She's a hunter and I'm a Tratie fan.
Q2: Do you think Four is hot? How hot? A:No, I don't think so.
Q3: What would happen if Twelve got Eight pregnant? A: Yeah, well, I don't think Silena would get Beck pregnant... More like the other way around. But I would be glad! :)
Q4: Can you recall any fics about Nine? A: Not, really. Only appearances in fics centered around other stuff, mainly Percabeth.
Q5: Would Two and Six make a good couple? A: Annabeth and Thalia???? *faints* No. Just no.
Q6: Five/Nine or Five/Ten? Why? A: Well, Nico/Clarisse just screams wrong, so I guess Nico/Katie is more acceptable.
Q7: What would happen if Seven walked in on Two and Twelve making out? A: Rachel walked in on Annabeth and Travis making out? First, this'd better be an alternate universe. Second, if - by extreme coincidence and scheming of Aphrodite and the gods- it isn't, Rachel would run and tell Percy.
Q8: Make up a summary for a Three/Ten fic. A: Grover just broke up with Juniper who cheated on him with another satyr and run into an equally upset Katie who had just broken up with Travis. What'll happen? (This came out of nowhere, but I don't think it'll ever happen btw)
Q9: Is there any such thing as One/Eight fluff? A: Percy/Beckendorf???? Are you serious? Maybe someone has written something like that, I wouldn't be surprised if they did. But to me this is just not acceptable and plain wrong.
Q10: Suggest a title for a Seven/Twelve hurt/comfort A: Um... NO? MISTAKE? BRAIN SCARRING? Oh, well... DO NOT READ UNLESS YOU WISH TO BE SCARRED FOR LIFE.
Q11: Does anyone on your friends list read Three/Eight? A: Grover/Beckendorf? No way.
Q12: Does anyone on your friends list, write or draw Eleven? A: Yeah, probably in a group photo of Camp Half-Blood.
Q13: Would anyone on your friends list write Two/Four/Five? A: Annabeth/Bianca/Nico? WHAT ON EARTH! NO FREAKING WAY!
14: If you wrote a Song-fic about Eight, what song would you choose? A: Enrique Iglesias - Addicted. Don't know why. It just came to mind.
Q15: If you wrote a One/Six/Twelve fic, what would the warning be? A: Percy/Thalia/Silena? Ahem... WARNING: BRAIN SCARRING, UNREAL AND LIKELY TO MAKE YOU SCARED TO READ ANOTHER FANFIC!
Q16: When was the last time you read a fic about Five? A: Nico? Must have been a couple of moths ago or something. Maybe even more.
Q17: "(1) and (7) are in a happy relationship until (9) runs off with (7). (1), brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with (11) and a brief unhappy affair with (6), then follows the wise advice of (5) and finds true love with (12).
A: Percy and Rachel are in a happy relationship until Clarisse runs off with Rachel. Percy, brokenhearted, has a hot one-night stand with Travis and a brief unhappy affair with Thalia, then follows the wise advice of Nico and finds true love with Silena... Are you mental???
Q18: What title would you give this fic? A: I would never write something like that.
Q19: How would you feel if Seven/Eight were in a heated argument? A: Rachel and Beckendorf? Um... Beckendorf how are you even alive?
Q20: What would you think if you found (5) was a really good friend of a sibling or relative of yours? A: Nico? "I need to see him, immediately."
Q21: How would you react if you saw (8) and (11) in a closet together with a rubber ducky? A: Beckendorf and Travis... "What the- who are you alive? Are you planning a prank Stoll? Why the heck are you in a closet? WTF?!"
Q22: How would you feel if (2) dissed you in the worst possible way ever? A: Well, as much as I like Annabeth, I would have to retaliate verbally and physically.
Q23: If you saw (9) and (3) in bed together, what would you do? A: Clarisse/Grover... "WHAT THE HELL???"
Q24: You just came home from school and all of your friends hate you, your teacher just gave you an F on the most important project of the year (just imagine it happened for the smart alecks out there), and your parents have grounded you as your teacher had already called and told them of your grade. You open the door to your bedroom and you find (10) rummaging through your stuff. What do you do?
A: Katie? ... "How are you at my house? Why are you looking through my stuff? What's going on???"
Q25: What would you think if (1) was emo and had tried to slit his/her wrists? If (1) is already emo/slit his/her wrists already, what would you think if (1) became the most optimistic person in the world?
Q26: What would you feel this second if (4) gave you a daisy right now? A: Bianca? "How are you alive? How do you have a daisy?"
Q27: (6) has just stolen your hairbrush. What is the first thing you would say? A: Thalia... "You have spiky hair... Why do you need a hairbrush? And why mine?"
Q28: (7), (9), and (4) have banded together at 3 in the morning and starts to sing the most annoying song you know as loud as they can, waking you up. What is the first thing you think?
Q29: (2) and (11) are your teachers. What would you do? A: Annabeth and Travis... "YAY!!!!"

When the house lights dimmed
and the concert was about to begin,
the mother returned to her seat and
discovered that the child was missing.
Suddenly, the curtains parted and spotlights
focused on the impressive Steinway on stage.
In horror, the mother saw her little
boy sitting at the keyboard, innocently picking out
"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."
At that moment, the great piano master made his entrance,
quickly moved to the piano, and whispered in the boy's ear,
"Don't quit. Keep playing"
Then, leaning over, Paderewski reached
down with his left hand and began filling
in a bass part. Soon his right arm reached
around to the other side of the child,
and he added a running obbligato.
Together, the old master and the young novice
transformed what could have been a frightening situation
into a wonderfully creative experience.
The audience was so mesmerized that they couldn't
recall what else the great master played.
only the classic,
"Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star."
Perhaps that's the way it is with God.
What we can accomplish on
our own is hardly noteworthy.
We try our best, but the results aren't always
graceful flowing music. However, with the
hand of the Master, our life's
work can be beautiful.
The nexttime you set out to accopmlish great feats,
listen carefully. You may hear the voice of the
Master, whispering in your ear,
"Don't quit. Keep playing."
May you feel His arms around you and
know that His hands are there, helping you
turn your feeble attempts into true masterpieces.
Remember, God doesn't seem to
call the equipped, rather, He equips the 'called.'
Life is more accurately measure by the lives you touch
than by the things you acquire.
So touch someone by passing this little message along.
May God bless you and be with you always!
