People have been asking
me about submitting various pieces of work. To simplfy
submissions, I've created some guidelines. Please look them over
before submitting your creative pieces.
Shipping is not acceptable. This is a Beast Boy/Changeling site, not
a shipping site. For those who don’t know the term “shipping,” it
refers to linking two characters romantically. I will not post anything
that is Beast Boy/Raven, Beast Boy/Terra, Beast Boy/Starfire, Beast
Boy/Cyborg, or any other attempt at any other romantic pairing.
Make sure everything is in its “final” version – final artwork, final
Remember that I have a life outside of the internet. I teach full
time. While I used to teach computers, I now teach reading, so I’m not
by a computer most of the day, and by the time I am near a computer,
I’m too exhausted to do much. Please don’t ask me “When are you going
to put my stuff up?”
Submissions should be rated G to PG13. Kids of all ages visit this
site. Everything needs to be “child friendly.”
General Fan Art:
NO shipping. While Beast Boy in a romantic pose is okay, Beast Boy in a
romantic pose with another character is not.
Beast Boy solo pictures are preferred.
If you would like to submit a group pic, he should be front and center,
not stuck in the back.
Please submit a clean, final copy.
Both color and black & white images are acceptable.
Try to keep images rated G to PG13 – while I don’t mind more “adult”
artwork, children do visit this site. Adult pieces will be stashed away
on my hard drive for safe keeping (and yes, I DO have adult artwork of
If your image is large, sending a thumbnail with the image is helpful
and saves me the time of needing to make one.
Again, NO SHIPPING.
Avatars of any standard size are acceptable. Generally avatars are
square (in other words, 50 x 50, 80 x 80, 100 x 100, etc).
Animated avatars are welcome.
Standard avatar formats are .gif and .jpg. Not all sites accept
.png, and most do not accept .bmp. If it’s not .jpg or .gif, I will
need to convert the format.
Say it with me people. . . NO SHIPPING.
Please submit wallpapers in standard screen resolutions (800 x 600,
1024 x 768, 1280 x 1024). These are the sizes most people use.
Thumbnails are helpful and save me time. Thumbnails should be 200
Make sure to check your wallpapers for visibility – images and colors
shouldn’t interfere with icons and text.
This is just a suggestion – when I make my wallpapers, I generally
try to place the main image in the center or to the right on the
screen. Icons automatically line up on the left. We all want to see
Beast Boy’s face. We don’t want to see icons all over his face.
Yes, this is getting redundant. . . NO SHIPPING.
Aim for Beast Boy only or Beast Boy central images in the screensaver.
Please submit any screensaver files zipped by WinZip.
Let me know if your screensaver is PC or Mac. I can not test Mac
Notice how this is number one every time? Yes, NO SHIPPING. It
doesn’t matter if the character is a DC Comics character or a fan
created character. No romance for Beast Boy/Changeling will be accepted
in fan fiction submissions. Friendship is one thing. Romance is
another. Friendship is acceptable. Romance isn’t.
Remember that I am a teacher – spelling and grammar count! If I
can’t read it, I can’t post it. Find a good beta reader (someone to
read, edit, and comment on your story). Please don’t ask me to beta
read/edit your story – I already have to grade reading, writing, and
spelling for 60 sixth grade students. That is why updating the site is
taking me so long.
Beast Boy must be one of the main focus characters in the story. He
doesn’t have to be the only one, but he should be one of the main ones.
Keep all characters “in character.” Each character has a unique
personality. Let it show. The characters should not take on the
personalities of your buddies or generic people. When you read over
your story, it should feel as if it’s another episode of the cartoon or
issue of the comic. Again, get a beta reader. Beta readers are your
Stories from any era of Beast Boy’s life are acceptable. This includes:
his early childhood
his life after his parents died
his time with the jewel thieves
his life with his embezzling guardian Galtry
the Doom Patrol years (I don’t care WHAT John Byrne says in his Byrned
Patrol – Drake’s Doom Patrol lives!)
Teen Titans West
New Teen Titans
Any subsequent Titans events
Teaming up with Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew
Arcudi’s Doom Patrol
Current Teen Titans comic events
Toon Teen Titans
Alternate universe/alternate future stories are acceptable, but must
follow above rules.
Like artwork, fan fiction should be max PG13.
Make sure your facts are correct. If the story takes place from the
Drake Doom Patrol era to just before the 1980’s New Teen Titans, he
will be Beast Boy. If it’s from the start of the New Teen Titans to the
start of The Titans comic book, he will be Changeling. From the Beast
Boy mini-series to present, he’s Beast Boy again. His real name is
Garfield Logan, nickname Gar. Do not change his name. It doesn’t matter
if you don’t like it – he was named Garfield Logan by his creator back
in 1965. End of story. If you need facts on other characters, go
to http://www.titanstower.com for all the
information you need.
Last time I’ll say it – NO SHIPPING. No romance, and NO SLASH.
