Due to the need to cram so much information into the thread titles in Crossover, we're making a few special additions to the posting guidelines relating to Crossover fics.
These guidelines aren't hard to follow and they do not replace the existing board guidelines. This is a special appendix to them relating only to crossovers.
Romance/Couple Designations for Crossovers
Limit thread title information on romantic pairings in crossover to CC or UC (as seen from a Roswellian POV). If a given fic has some UC in it, then for the purposes of the thread title it's UC.
Because some of those crossover couples are pretty far out there we ask that if there is a need for more information, save full names, initials, and lengthy explanations for your summary in the header on the first page of your fic.
Show Titles and Abbreviations for Crossovers
Again, title space is not unlimited so don't spell the name of a given show in full unless you have to. Use commonly accepted abbreviations for show titles. You can explain your particular crossover more fully in your summary in the header on the first page of the fic. (See Abbreviation List below)
- If the name of the show you are crossing over with has more than 5 characters, you should probably abbreviate it.
- There's no need to designate the "Roswell" portion of a Crossover. That is a given with any crossover on this board.
If the show you are crossing over with is not listed below, try to use these as an example to come up with your abbreviation. If you invent a new one, contact a Mod so that it can be added to the list.
Multi = Multiple shows. (Use this to indicate 2 or more)
BtVS = Buffy the Vampire Slayer
DA = Dark Angel
OC = The OC
LnC - Lois and Clark
OTH = One Tree Hill
TDZ = The Dead Zone
