Content that we do not accept
Modernizing. The events of Eä locate in epic ancient times in an alternate history - try to keep the atmosphere.
Gary Stus and Mary Sues. Keep the characters realistic with themselves and the others.
Original characters that are too closely related to the canon characters. Tolkien designed quite detailed family trees for the heroes and heroines. You may understand why such characters might not fit too well in the orientation of this group.
Non-canon pairings of Tolkien's original characters - this also includes slash, mpreg and fpreg. Canon pairings are allowed, but also remember which characters Tolkien meant as bachelors.
The main purpose of this DA group is collecting deviations that are as canon or loyal as possible to Eä - the original rich vision, lore and fantasy universe of J.R.R. Tolkien. Any theme from Arda (the world of the universe of Eä) is welcome.
Many styles of arts and crafts are allowed, but the style preference of art is mainly realistic or something fit for a storybook. What is especially welcome is originality - we encourage you to show your original products of imagination which came from reading the books. You can also post your own original fan made characters.
Remember that the group is book based. You can submit deviations about characters which bear the resemblance with the depictions in other Tolkien media, but if you do, use the book scenes rather than the possibly rewritten scenes in that media.
Featured - This folder can be edited and submitted to by the appointed moderators only who are granted a permission to edit the gallery as a whole. Especially wonderful deviations go to Featured, and a random deviation is being displayed as a large thumbnail each time someone visits the page.
Beginners - This folder is for deviations of beginning artists who wish to read some advice, tutorials and constructive criticism on the way to evolving to their own peak as artists. We all started from somewhere, so if you want these things, Beginners folder is the way to go.
UT and HoME - Silmarillion is a grand source of Tolkien's lore, but Christopher Tolkien also published more of his father's text in Unfinished Tales and History of Middle-Earth series (which the folder name stands for). While some parts of the lore correlate with Tolkien's main books, some lore in them is either peripheral or abandoned. This folder accepts the deviations from them, was the lore open for debate or not.
Journals - Do you have WIP to talk about or something other Tolkien related to promote? This is where your blogs and journals are allowed. For members only.
Humor and Memes - This folder allows modern references and Mary Sues as a stock for good laughs (though non-canon shipping and slash are still prohibited).
If you accept these rules, you might feel at home with us!
