  5. To hell with the MPAA/MPA. What this means is that the ratings system is still G through NC-17. Stories of any rating are acceptable.
  6. A note on ratings: Stories with sex become R or NC-17, no excuses. Ratings will be changed to reflect content if mislabeled.
  7. Stories do not have romantic or sexual in nature. Extreme friendship stories are certainly acceptable, as long as other pairings don't exist in the story. However, romantic/sexual relationships are highly encouraged.
  8. Almost all content in stories is acceptable, within reasonable perameters. However, Tempest reserves the refuse a contribution due to content. And please, use warnings for anything even slightly off vanilla.
  9. Please use warnings for AU, MU, Character death and anything else in general that you as a reader would like to know before beginning a story.

  13. We DO accept submissions for AOS (also known as movie Trek or reboot Trek). Please simply indicate in your submission if it involves the new movie universe, actors, or characters. Any story not coded as AOS is assumed to take place during the main TOS/TAS/TOS movie continuity.
