This is a sample article. Its purpose is to display wiki techniques and generally be an example. It is still under construction.
Aside from our general naming policy and category policy, The Devil May Cry Fanon Wiki does not have very strict rules about how to organize your own fanfic, but we can make some suggestions. We encourage users to take full advantage of their category page and use it as a central hub for their writing. You may edit your category to say whatever you want, (within reason,) and sub-categorize your fanfics to your heart's desire. Of course, this does not stop you from creating a title page for your fanfic. It's all what you want to do.
This example will attempt to showcase working techniques in organizing a fanon. With that in mind, let's pretend this is my title page. It does not contain actual prose, but it does contain valuable information about the story such as:
Call it a summary, an overview, a digest, or just a lead-in, this section is used to tell readers what your fanon is about. It is advisable to state here what kind of story this is: Is it romance? Action? Cross-over? Best to make it highly visible. If there's a demand for it, Anobi could be bothered to create a template for such things.
A quick list of characters involved in this story. For example:
Note that it is up to authors to maintain their own pages. We recommend you use a consistant style, and have only one page per character, even if multiple versions of the same character show up in different fanons of yours. Click the link for more examples of how to write up a character page.
A link to all of your chapters, in order. Note that there is no set way to name your chapters, aside from the fact that all of your pages must have your username in parenthesis behind them. Though the following are not actual pages, they are excelent examples of how chapter pages can be named.
- Example fanon: Mission 1: The Title (Anobi)
- Example fanon mission 1: The Title (Anobi)
- Example fanon (Anobi)/Mission 1: The Title
- The Title: Example fanon mission 1 (Anobi)
- Example fanon 1: The Title (Anobi)
These are just examples. Keep organization in mind when naming your chapters. Personally, Anobi is a fan of sub pages--that's option #3--for fanons organized around a title page.
