When posting, you must categorize it using the appropriate flair:
- OC—For original, self post, story or artwork that you have created.
- Text—For a story in self post or image form that you did not create.
- PI—For posts inspired by writing prompts from HFY and other sub prompts.
- Video—For a video. Also note, that videos in general may be subject to removal if people complain that their relevance is dubious.
- Meta—For a post about the sub itself or stories from HFY.
- Misc—For relevant submissions that do not fit into one of the above categories.
If you have written a series, please link the previous and next entries in the series in the main body of text.
Always host image links on imgur for easier viewing.
