The following contains terms and concepts not appropriate for smaller children

We use state of the art automated content filtering software combined with human audits and reported content. Violation of these terms may result in your content being removed temporarily or permentently. In more serious cases your account may be deleted and in the case of a potential crime reported to the police.

Family Friendly Filter

The simply rule of thumb is "if a grown up is reading a story and their kid walks in they should never feel like they have to put the phone down". In order to be deemed family friendly it must not contain any

  • Bullying: toxic, aggressive, and repeated behavior intended to hurt another individual, physically, mentally, or emotionally. In the family friendly version the antagonists can use mild name calling if it can pass the filter and will not upset a child.
  • Sexual Content: content related to love relationships and dating, sexting, and any content that is sexual, erotic, or suggestive in nature. You can kiss the princess awake but stay away from PDA (public display of affection). We do not explore sexual orientation (including hetrosexual to be fair) at the family friendly level.
  • Vulgarity: content that is coarse, rude, and potentially offensive. It encompasses obscenity, profanity, vulgarity, and most swears and offensive terms.
  • Hate-Speech: content that is abusive or threatening and expresses or promotes prejudice against a particular group of individuals. Typically due to some innate characteristics. The characteristics might include ethnicity, gender, color, nationality, sexual orientation, race, or physical disability
  • Personal Informaiton: Do not share your real name, address, phone number, postal code social insurance number or other ids. Don't upload photos that contain information like your house number or a way for people to find you. This is for your own protection.
  • Filter Breaking: do not try to get around the filter.
  • Pornography and Racy Images: content that depicts nudity even for artistic reasons, sexual suggestive content and too much cleavage or private parts showing.
  • Medical Images, Gore and Violence: content that depicts blood, death, surgery and other elements frightening to children

Exceptions for Older Audiences

Stories deal with difficult topics and we want to make room to allow you to explore these. The following exceptions are allowed if the story is marked as mature.

  • Bullying: the story may use bullying, especially from the antagonist if it teaches against bullying
  • Sexual Content: users may kiss, may suggest they where intimate but we do not allow sex scenes or abuse. Canadian law (where we are) prohits images and even text of underage users having sex and we are required to report it as a crime.
  • Hate-Speech: the story may use hate-speech if the story is a counter message on the harms of hate but be sensitive to readers and keep it in line with what is necessary and not a glorification of hate. For example you could depict a comic in Nazi Germany where a people group is being killed to write a message against it or a message of hope but you must add the tag of older audiences and not focus on the violence and hate but the message of hope.
  • No Vulgarity: we do not believe it is necessary to use swear words to communicate your point. Be a better writer, take us up on this challenge and show depth in your character not by shock and awe but by depth of dialogue.
  • No Pornography and Racy Images: nudity is not allowed, sexual depictions of minors is not allowed and will be reported to law enforcement. We are not interested in the use of people as objects including showing cleavage to get attention, suggestive swimsuits, intimate scenes. This site is not for those kinds of stories.


It is an amazing opportunity to work with brands to create fan art. The brands are taking a risk to allow their characters and art to be used. In return brands can set guidelines for how their brand can be used which are shown when you create a story. In addition fan stories are expected to have the characters act in character and in line with the world they come from. Stories that fail to comply with those rules may be deleted by the brand.


We allow stories about religion, politics and other controversial issues however you must clearly state it with tags. If you use the mature exceptions you must mark it as mature when using the exceptions listed above. Our content platforms and iNSPIRE reserve the right to curate including excluding or including stories that match such tags and align with their editorial goals.

As an example it is common for Christians to write stories about how they came to Christ and encourage others to do the same. This is allowed providing the story is marked as "Christian" and in the case of a particular sect the name of that sect.

In exchange for this opportunity we ask that you respect others who write stories that disagree with you. You may exclude stories like it in your settings or choose a platform partner, publisher or channel that aligns with your preferences. If the story violates these terms of service or fails to add a tag to be honest about it's agenda please report it
