Literotica is a condensation of "literary erotica," in this case, Doctor Who, Torchwood and Sarah Jane Adventures literary erotica. What do we mean by this? "It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive," or "It is better to describe and experience every nuance of feeling and arousal rather than to experience the pinnacle of climax". As has been said, porn is the arrival, erotica is the journey.
The input of this group is subjective, and there is no helping that. We do not pretend to be impartial, unbiased, or fair. Our definition of literary erotica may be different from yours, and almost certainly is. We seek to showcase and encourage the emotive over the physical, the sensual over the sexual.
There are multitudes of sterling communities that archive Dr. Who fanfiction of all kinds, and we laud and love all of them. We do not wish to rival any of them. Rather, we wish to provide a niche for the outstanding literary efforts that we stumble across from time to time. There is an enormous wealth of talent in this fandom, writers diverse and unique. The ones we love best are the wordsmiths, those who take the simple act of a kiss and turn it into a stomach fluttering moment that you finish reading only to realise that you have been holding your breath the whole time without knowing it. Sometimes these are by people that we've all heard of, and sometimes we find a hidden gem that turns out to be the only erotic piece that writer has ever done.
We want you to write about sex, but we also want you to write about Desire, Lust, Unrequited Love, Voyeurism, Bitterness, Denial, all the light and dark that makes us human. And we want you to write about interactions that aren't necessarily sexual as well.
This is a closed community for one reason only: the input is subjective. Our viewpoint on what is literary in quality is only our opinion. We operate on an invitational basis because if we were to set up an application process, we would inevitably hurt feelings, which is quite opposite of our goals in this endeavour. You are, however, welcome to point out any worthy stories you may come across, either your own or someone else's, if you believe they merit our consideration.
The authors appreciate your comments, both glowing reviews and constructive criticism. However, the Mods will not tolerate rude, abusive, or non-constructive comments. Anyone leaving a pointlessly negative comment will be banned from further commenting.
We personally don't mind who/what you ship. Any Doctor, any companion, any combination. Everyone has their own favourite Doctor(s) and their favourite companion(s). Please respect people's choices, just because one person's otp may be Ten/Romana or Nine/Jack does not mean that they are 'omgtehevol.' Variety is the spice of life, after all. Besides, if you take a moment to read the story before going off in a huff, you might even find you like it.
Every month, there is a challenge posted that both members and non members can particpate in. As part of LJ's TOS, we cannot accept works with a higher than NC17(USA)/R(UK/Australia) rating. Fic written for the challenges cannot be old, previously posted works or parts of a work-in-progress or chapters from a fic. Fics must also not contain any RPF(real person fiction) as this community is a FPF (fictional personal fiction) community only.
