    Summary

    You’re worldbuilding, and you need a legal system.

    Or more accurately (probably), you’re writing a fic that may not be about law, but which might be law-adjacent. Something like casefic, or maybe your characters are going through a separation, or pretty much anything involving deep political intrigue. And you want to make sure your fic hits that critical suspension of disbelief threshold, and you want some nice, tasty details to throw in to make your readers salivate.

    This is a guide on how to do that.

    Summary

    What this is, is a bunch of tips and tricks. There’s a Quick Start Guide at the top, for if you’re staring at your very first podfic and don’t know where to start. After that there’s a lot of the podfic equivalent of, ‘Have you tried a baking strip?’ and, ‘This is what butter creamed with sugar should look like.’ Etc. Take what’s useful; forget about what’s not. Cheers.

    Summary

    In the news announcement for the tag limit, some users have suggested ways to determine your current amount of used tags on the fly. I realized another method, but comments have since closed. Therefore, I'm posting it as meta and hope this will be of use!

    Summary

    It seems the normal course of a Passenger's journey is learning lessons and achieving emotional growth through introspection. traveling from car to car, and interacting with Denizens.

    But can someone "speedrun" getting their number to zero by ignoring all those expectations?

    Absolutely.

    Summary

    As I'm writing this, AO3 just announced a new limit on the number of tags that authors can add to their works. The limit is 75 total tags across Fandoms, Characters, Relationships, and Additional tags. The limit does not apply to Ratings, Warnings, or Categories.

    This work is going to explain what a tag is, how it works on AO3, and what an author can do to limit their tags but still get the most use out of them. This work is aimed at authors on AO3, but readers might find it interesting as well.

    This work is not going to tell writers how they should or should not tag. My goal is just to help authors make informed decisions for their own tagging preferences.
