Community description:Stark Industries: Iron Man fanfiction community
Stark Industries is a fanfiction community devoted to Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, and the other characters from his comics, movie and animation in any genre of fic.

Discussion, art, recs, resource links and other fanworks are also welcome.

I'm Grey Bard, I'll be your mod for this comm, and I only have one rule. The rest are more in the way of suggestions.

Even Tony Stark can't run Stark Industries without help, so if you have a question, comment or brilliant idea please head on over to the Suggestion Box post or email me.


- Be excellent to each other. Disagreements are natural, but no one wants a troll.

Suggestions from the mod

- If someone were to post something directly to Stark Industries that could get the comm shut down, they would be very silly to do so outside of friends-lock, wouldn't they?

- If someone were to read something rated too high for them to watch in a movie theater, and then run and tell us about it, I would have to restrict membership. And that would be sad!

- Ratings are your friend.

Please put some kind of notification outside of link or cut-tag of the age your fanwork is appropriate for. The US film classification system works (G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17) as does a simple statement in plain English (Suitable for adult readers).

If you choose not to use ratings, in lieu of a rating please write something like "Author chooses not to warn for adult content" or some such statement.

- Cut tags are your friend.

- Crossposting is totally okay.

- Reposting older fics that have never been on this community before is not only okay, it's positively encouraged!

- Please don't spoil Iron Man 2 until July 1, 2010 (due to the lateness of the Japanese release) or a comic less than a month old by posting something outside a cut tag, or by failing to warn people clicking on the cut tag that you're going to be discussing these spoilery topics. Yes, spoilery icons count.

Spoiling, in the case of the movie, consists of anything people would not know from reading Iron Man comics or seeing any of the movie trailers or official websites. The existence of, say, James Rhodes is not a spoiler.

- People like to know what they're clicking on the cut tag of. Author, title and pairing or character, as well as what kind of post it is, is a good place to start.

- It's great when people tag their posts. It makes things easier to find. Stark Industries has tag categories for Rating, Genre, Pairing or Character, and Type of Post. Yes, Mixed and Surprise! are valid tags. Also, if you want, you may tag your posts with your name.

- If you're posting something multi-part, linking where your readers can find the other parts is very convenient for them.

- If making multiple posts at once, please consider combining them so as not to spam your readers.

- Robert Downey Jr. is not an Iron Man character, he is a real person. Therefore, if you would like to post fic or discussion that is about him or any other actor and not about an Iron Man character or performance, please post it elsewhere. This is not because the mod doesn't like Robert Downey Jr.! But that is not what this comm is about.

Missing Stark Industries LJ content?

You can subscribe to the Livejournal edition of Stark Industries here: Crossposting is fine, but a lot of people prefer one platform over the other, so I've decided to accomodate both.

Note on the Captain America/Iron Man thing
The LJ edition of this comm does not accept Captain America/Iron Man pairing fic because there are already two livejournal comms specifically devoted to that pairing. However, there aren't any on Dreamwidth at the moment, and some people only use Dreamwidth, so this restriction does not apply to this, the Dreamwidth edition of Stark Industries.
