Welcome to camelot_love, the shipper comm for the Prince & the Handmaiden. This community was specifically created to celebrate the relationship of the future king and queen of Camelot, as based on the BBC fantasy/drama, Merlin.
If you hate Arthur/Guinevere or even Guinevere, this is most definitely not the place for you.
* And last but not least, special thanks to our amazing members who have made this COMM come alive with the squee, the fics, videos and the fanart.
*All entries that are not fanart, fic or otherwise graphic related(like screencaps) must be locked.* See this POST for the listing.
1). Absolutely no Actor/Character bashing in this community. If you don't like Arthur or Guinevere or Arthur/Guinevere together, you shouldn't be here. Any post against the couple, the characters, or Bradley and Angel will be deleted, and the poster will be banned. I hope you're all grown up enough to know what is bashing and what isn't.
2). Discussion regarding Lancelot cannot be avoided and we welcome it. However discussion on Lancelot as a stand alone character isn't allowed, nor is discussion about the Lancelot/Guinevere pairing allowed in this COMM. If you want to discuss him as he pertains to Arthur/Guinevere that is a-ok by us. A/G vs. L/G discussions are a big hell no and will get you banned with a quickness if you dare start such discussions. Keep in mind that not everyone here will have love for Lancelot, you will need to respect that and not bitch/whine/moan/complain about folks not liking him, for whatever reason.
3). Tag all entries. If it isn't tagged, one of the MODS will request that you tag it. If you don't respond to the request, the entry will be deleted. This is what our tags system looks like, so please familiarize yourself with them: TAGS.
* All entries must have a subject heading. As with tagging the same rule applies: If we sent you a request to add a heading and you don't respond the entry will be deleted.
* Anything posted under a lock should not be posted or cut/pasted off the COMM. Any entry with a download link must be locked. Mvids(of your own creation) are the only exception.
* DO NOT HOTLINK IMAGES FROM OTHER PEOPLE'S PHOTO ACCOUNTS. IF YOU SEE AN IMAGE YOU WANT TO USE, UPLOAD IT TO YOUR OWN SERVER FIRST.
4). We accept all fan art, fan vids, and fics pertaining to the Prince Arthur/Guinevere pairing. Any adult material should be clearly marked and under a cut.
All fanfic must have the following heading: Just copy and paste:
* Arthur/Guinevere MUST be the pairing of any fic posted on this COMM and not in a 'Arthur or Guinevere is in love with Merlin/Morgana/Lancelot/Gaius/Uther/Sir Leon/Spock/Bella/His Horse, etc' and is only using/abusing each other until their true love comes back to them.
* Absolutely no incest or 'implied' incest fics allowed.
* All fanfic must be tagged with a rating along with a pairing tag if A/G is not the only relationship being featured.
* Only 3 icon previews are allowed and they MUST all be of A/G, Arthur or Guinevere.
* Only 1 preview allowed for wallpapers/headers.
* All graphics above the cut must only be 400x300 px or smaller. They can be up to 10 px bigger but any larger than that and you'll be asked to re-size or place it under a cut.
* All embedded videos must be re-sized to 450x200 or go under an LJ_CUT. Non-compliance will result in your entry being deleted.
5).We love spoilers, however we have to respect the fact that some members will not want to read them and therefore the LJ-CUT is thy friend, so please use it. Put all spoilers under a cut and put in the subject heading that there are spoilers ahead.
6). Do not disable comments on a post and do not post entries that lead to locked journals. Such entries will be deleted with no warning.
7). We don't accept posts that are gossip, i.e. about who is dating whom, etc.
8). Do not under circumstances promote or prompt anything without asking the MODS first. We don't care it its another COMM, a ficathon or whatever. Common courtesy dictates that you ask first or the entry will be deleted as soon as its seen by a MOD.
9). Posts about Bradley and Angel's solo projects, pictures, news about the show, etc. are all welcome - we love any excuse to stare at the pretty and flail!.
10). Be respectful.
11). This isn't a rule, more so a piece of advice: For your own sanity stay out of places that engage in A/G wank/bashing and hate. Trust us, you'll be the better for it.
