SeductiveInkWell Intro and Submission Rules

SeductiveInkWell welcomes all connoisseurs and friends of quality male/ male fiction. We strive to provide a showcase of beautifully woven stories that enrapture minds and hearts of their readers.

SeductiveInkWell is not a general yaoi group because we strongly believe that there is so much more to writing male/ male fiction than portraying idealized homosexual male relationships (as wiki defined the yaoi genre). The works you will find here range from incredibly hot erotic scenes, complicated male/ male relationships or tender romances to writings portraying friendship or even passionate hate.

Stories do not need to be erotic in content to be considered by us as gems of male/ male fiction world. We spend time regularly to find quality stories on dA and request permission to showcase them from thei respective authors. However, we indeed welcome if you send us a suggestion (include a link please) or submit your own work here.

We keep a high quality standard for writings accepted to our group galleries. Please consider these rules before your submissions:

:bulletgreen: Stories need to have an intriguing and well developed plot.
:bulletgreen: Characters need to show emotional depth.
:bulletgreen: If your work is erotic in content, it needs to show knowledge of male body anatomy and its natural reactions.

Bottom line of these three rules is that your writing needs to make us CARE what happens to your characters. For more information please see: What Makes a Masterfully Told Story

Moving to the formal criteria for acceptance on top of the above mentioned:

:bulletgreen: Stories with erotic content must have mature filter on and characters must be above 18 years old.
:bulletgreen: This is a male/ male fiction group. Females are acceptable as side characters in your story. The rule of thumb is that at least three quarters of your story need to focus on male/ male interaction and the relations between males and females in your work submitted here mustn't be of erotic nature.
:bulletgreen: Your story needs to show masterful command of words and a very good grammar quality. While minor slips are acceptable and natural especially if English is your second language, we don't accept works with careless grammar and spelling errors or dull writings which fail to stir imagination due to a too narrow vocabulary range used.
:bulletgreen: Submissions for members is limited to one submission per week

What is not accepted in our galleries:
:bulletred: male pregnancy
:bulletred: F/M erotic interactions
:bulletred: any work implying sensual thoughts about or erotic behavior toward children
:bulletred: erotic scenes with no or weak story plot and/ or superficial character development

Not sure if your story meets the group standards? Please refer to these examples of quality we welcome in our galleries:

Bound by Blood by BloodrainFireDawn
Scarred Chapter 1 by Tales-of-Torment

If you are unsure about acceptable involvement of your female characters you can check it here:
perfectly acceptable: Perfection Ch 1 by ErmengardeSecret

We welcome friendly interactions with our members and group gallery visitors. Feel free to leave us a comment or send a question. We don't bite ;) and will be happy to talk with you and assist you.

And if you do enjoy the stories we bring to you, please give feedback to their authors in the comment fields. It warms every writer's heart to see his work recognized and appreciated by his/ her readers :heart:
