Prologue: VS. Kacie Boskey
1. Send all stories in regular text format only.Okay, I can’t argue with that. This was back when text formats were the only acceptable formats. What else?
2. No plagiarism; in other words, all stories must be original and not used before in the series, the movie, the magazine or the comic strip.Wait, what about from stuff that wasn’t from the show? You know, like other films or shows?
3. I have the right to check and correct spelling, grammar and puncuation [sic] before posting your story, as well as editing or changing anything that might seem inappropriate.I see both one grammar and one spelling problem. There should probably be a comma after grammar and punctuation is spelt wrong. However, to err is human, that and I don’t really do spelling and grammar jokes, so I will pick on this less. And then there’s this one...
4. Due to the volume of such stories I'm receiving lately, I also have a right to either edit or refuse any story that shows a Rugrats character, or a character developed for the story, either dying, in grave danger, or having a past that changed their lives (such as a dead parent). Remember — this is Rugrats, not an "ABC Afterschool Special".This is a pretty heavy rule. However, it doesn’t exactly translate to “No Dark Fics”, per se, but it still sets up the basis of what isn’t exactly acceptable. However, I doubt characters with actual dead parents (i.e. Chuckie) or adventurous fanfics (something like the first movie) are gonna be on the chopping block for these rules. So those are the rules the Webmaster set up, and as stated before, you’ll know why they’re put up there. Well, that wraps it up for this prologue post. Tune in next time where we begin ripping into the first of many fanfics.
