Ratings


Here is a list of the different rating systems used by fanfic writers. Please remember it's better to be safe than sorry. If you're unsure whether your fic is PG-13 or R, please choose the higher of the two, that way only those who should read your fic will. If you live in a country other than the US, UK or Australia and would like to see your rating system here, email me. Just be sure to tell me which country you live in and include descriptions of the ratings.
