Is it OK for me to add a FE 14 section? I know of quite a few Fates fics that are pretty darn stellar.

I think there's also quite a few one-shots that I'd like to add, could we add a "one-shots" section, too?

And one final question: Should I add a list of fics I'd like to add to this discussion page first, or should I just add them to the page? Because, uh...well, let's just say I have 184 stories on my favorites list. I won't be adding them all, but uh...quite a few deserve to be here, IMO.

I'm thinking of adding folders to General Fics and Shipping Fics. The page would look like this:

  • Authors and Websites (unchanged)
  • General Fics
  • Shipping Fics

I'm hesitating because it might be a little confusing when FE 14 is released in 2016. Thoughts?

A second point: There's a lot of review-ish text under Invisible Ties, Asleep, Queen of Sorrow, and Person's Unknown. It takes up a lot of space. Ideally, I'd like to add Review Buttons on these most popular stories. The only problem is that I can't transplant the current text into the Review pages; individuals would need to re-paste their comments/reviews under their own Troper name-tag. I know this isn't going to happen.

So, would you guys be cool if I straight-up deleted the extra reviews on those stories so far, and added review buttons? I would leave the first comment in the "comments" section, but everything else would go. People could add on their reviews again later, if they'd like.

Finally: I skimmed "Fourteen Days" and "Hey Father Which Ones Mother" and I wasn't a fan. Does anyone have any opinions on whether or not they should stay as recs? My issue with Fourteen Days is the number of OCs and the OOC characters; it feels like a random story with FE character names thrown in at times. Its saving grace is that it's long, and going through the reviews, some people seemed to like it.

Hey Father Which Ones Mother had really poor grammar and felt weak. Still, it's crack, so some people might like it anyway.

If others agree that the stories should go, I'll take them down. I know the recs discussion page doesn't get a lot of traffic, so I'll wait for a week or two before making any changes.

I skimmed it and it seems amusing. It's not dead yet, either. Go ahead and rec it. EDIT: I noticed it has a TVTropes page. If you rec it, feel free to link to it.

I generally like unusual stuff. It's not rec-worthy, though, because there's no context and I'm honestly not sure what I'm reading despite a few re-reads.

I'd like to split off the FE 13 examples into its own page. Or at least all the After-Action Report fics.

Interesting idea. Go for it if you want, but keep in mind we might revert it if it ends up being ugly or non-navigable. EDIT: Perhaps just split them up into different sections on the same page?

I made a recommendation on this page, but I'm having a bit of trouble with the links. A little help here?

You need to add it in this format: [[URL Workname]].

Okay, so I actually had the format backwards. Thank you for your help!
