Format Rules/Story Codes

From All The Fallen Stories
Jump to: navigation, search

Okay, so we use a story code system to let readers know what they are getting into when they choose a story to read. These were taken for the most part from Asstr.org. To keep things uniform try to use the following codes:

Story Type

This should be part of every story, and should be the first story code.

Code Definition
Traditional A traditional story, to be read, not played.
Interactive An interactive story, with branches and choices.
Game An interactive story with game-play elements such as health, inventory, etc with or without coding.


Age / Gender / Coupling

We use codes to inform readers what age gender pairings appear in the story.

Age and Gender

Code Definition
M An adult man (18 or older)
m Boy - Teenager (13 - 17)
b Boy - Preteen (age 12 or younger)
F An adult woman (18 or older)
f Girl - Teenager (13 - 17)
g Girl - Preteen (age 12 or younger)
H A hermaphrodite adult.
h A hermaphrodite under 18.
all All ages and genders may be present.

Additionally, you can add a specific age in parentheses after the code. This is very important for the b, g and h codes when the subject is 5 years old or younger.

Couplings

Use a slash / between parings, with the more dominant partner to the left of the slash. Examples:

Code Definition
M/F Heterosexual adult sex.
m/f Young heterosexual sex.
F/F Homosexual adult female sex.
M/M Homosexual adult male sex.
f/f Young lesbian sex.
m/m Homosexual, young male sex.
M/g Permutations of this are an adult having sex with a young child.
F/b(4) An adult female having sex with a 4 year old boy.
F/f/g An adult female dominating a teen female who dominates a child female.

Additional partners

humil Humiliation. Some of the sexual charge of the story involves the humiliation of one of the characters.

snuff Killing for sexual pleasure.
spank [Spanking] Mild sm
tort Torture. Severe non-consensual infliction of pain.
va Verbal abuse. [Abusive and dirty language]
viol Violence, not always sad

Generally, (snuff) applies to killing in which the description of the killing is supposed to add to the sexual charge; (viol) includes stories which are violent, even if the sex isn't.


When you have coded for the most extreme, omitting the codes for the less extreme is acceptable. (viol) is generally used for non-sexual violence; you should have some specific code from that list for any sexually-connected violence. If you do not, however, use (viol) rather than having no code.

Relationships

Code Definition
cheat Married or committed people having sex outside of the commitment, cheating on their partner, as distinct from swinging.
cuckold The story involves the feeling of humiliation of a man's knowing that another has replaced him in his wife's bed
inc Incest
interr Interracial
rom [Romantic] The story contains consensual sexual activity. Based, at least in part, on the characters' love for one another.
swing Married or committed couples in which the commitment does not imply exclusivity.
wife Wife watching (participatory cuckoldry)
wl [Wedded Lust] Sex within the marital relationship

Note on marriage. (wl) is the only code which covers sex between husband and wife. (swing), (wife), and (creampie) [see below] imply that the spouse knows and approves of the other spouse's sexual activity with others. In (cuckold) the husband knows, but doesn't approve. In (cheat) the spouse might find out, but -- if so -- this discovery is a major blow to the relationship.
