Every story on the wiki is issued a content rating, which is based on the material it contains. Ratings range from very kid friendly (K) to adult-only (MA); things such as language, graphic and violent content, sexual content, etc. are taken into account when issuing a rating.
Most stories that are on the wiki were previously published on FanFiction.net, which requires that a rating be selected for the story when it is published. For those stories, their FanFiction rating is transferred to the wiki. For stories only published on the wiki, their content is evaluated and rated based on the administrators' best judgments.
Rating descriptions are taken from FanFiction.
- Not rated – This is a special category for stories that do not have an official rating (either because the story's official rating is pending, or the story was scrapped before being published).
- Fiction K (age 5+) – Intended for general audience 5 years and older. Content should be free of any coarse language, violence, and adult themes.
- Fiction K+ (age 9+) – Suitable for more mature childen, 9 years and older, with minor action violence without serious injury. May contain mild coarse language. Should not contain any adult themes.
- Fiction T (age 13+) – Suitable for teens, 13 years and older, with some violence, minor coarse language, and minor suggestive adult themes.
- Fiction M (age 16+) – Not suitable for children or teens below the age of 16 with non-explicit suggestive adult themes, references to some violence, or coarse language. Fiction M can contain adult language, themes and suggestions.
- Fiction MA (age 18+) – Content is only suitable for mature adults. May contain explicit language and adult themes. Detailed descriptions of physical interaction of sexual or violent nature is considered Fiction MA.
Notes on Fiction MA
A word of warning: FanFiction does not accept explicit content (Fiction MA). Due to the wiki's target audience being teens and young adults, Fiction MA is also discouraged here. Shipping fan fics are permitted so long as they stay out of the explicit range and follow the wiki's fan fiction guidelines.
MARCH 2020 UPDATE: Stories rated MA are now permitted on the wiki. Any chapter that fits this criteria must make use of the mature content template in order to flag it as such, however.
