I've always wanted to make a transformative works policy because I'm all for it. But I never did it before because I'm not well-known. I'm following the snowflake_challenge
right now and someone made a wishlist and hoped that more people would make a transformative works policy. I read what others had to say on the topic, especially from the point of view of podficcers, and I'm in. So here is mine.
- Very Important Note on Works-In-Progress:
Please do not create any transformative works based on my fanfiction or series or challenges or other fanworks that are currently Works-In-Progress. Please wait for me to complete my current/ongoing WIPs before creating any transformative works for them. Also, please refer to the list under bullet point #4.
- Meta and other non-fiction fanworks: this policy also covers my meta fanworks posted to AO3, to lizzys_study, and any review or commentary posts etc. I'm editing the post to reflect that.
- Podfics and illustrations: please feel free to create podfics and art/comics for any of my completed fanfiction or fanworks, you don't need to ask for my permission. Please feel free to add or alter dialogue tags, etc. for podficcing purposes. But I am sorry to inform you that I don't listen to podfics.
- Remixes, sequels, prequels, AUs, etc.: please feel free to use any of my abandoned fanfiction, you don't need to ask for my permission. Currently, my only abandoned series is Short Stories.
If you wish to create remixes, sequels etc. for any of my completed fanfiction, please check the following list first for the exceptions. I will keep the list updated.
- Please do not create remixes, sequels (including art/comics), AUs (including art/comics), etc. for the following fanfiction:
(1) Love and Friendship and Unexpected (this series is my current WIP).
Make a Wish. I'm taking this one off this list so now it can be transformed further if anyone wants to.
(4) Tradition (this is a gift but I wish to continue it).
(5) Won't Hold Back Tonight (this is a gift but I wish to continue it).
- I reserve the right to write remixes, sequels, prequels, AUs, etc. to all of my fanfiction and fanworks, including stories that I've abandoned.
- Translations: please do not translate any of my fanfiction or fanworks.
- Crediting etc: Please include a link to my fanfiction or fanwork on AO3 or lizzys_study in your notes. If you wish to send me a link to your work or wish to ask me any questions, please contact me via private messaging (either at DW or LJ) or leave a comment at any of the following accounts: elizabeth_rice, fanfic_by_lizzy, lizzys_study, elizabeth_rice, elizabeth_rice, or fanfic_by_lizzy. Thank you.
- Linking: you may share the link to any of my fanfiction or fanworks. But please link to my fanfiction on AO3. I've posted some meta to AO3 and others to lizzys_study, so please link accordingly. Please note that the share buttons for my fanworks on AO3 are active.
- Downloading: I love AO3's download options for offline reading. If you wish to download any of my fanworks via AO3 for offline reading, please go ahead.
- Archiving and Distributing: please do not archive or distribute any of my fanfiction and fanworks without my permission. Thank you.
- If I've missed something or if you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
