Ship Manifesto Formatting

This should be the basic structure of your manifesto. Feel free to get creative with it, but all elements should be represented, if only by a sentence or two. There are two options for posting:



For direct posting to the community:

title: [title of manifesto]
author: [your username]
fandom: [fandoms]
pairing: [paring]

canon recap:

this is the area where you give a general overview of what the actual fandom is

[character a]:

this is the area where you talk about the first part of your ship

[character b]:

this is the area where you talk about the second part of your ship

the ship:

this is the area where you provide canon or subtextual evidence for your ship.

meta:

this is the area where you explain why you love the pairing. sell your ship to people! humanize the ship.

fandom guide:

this is the area where you rec communities/blogs, fanart, fanfic. a how-to guide for getting into your ship for newbies looking not only to dip their toes in, but also to find what you think to be the best of the best fanworks.





For posts linking to your manifesto on AO3:

title: [title of manifesto]
author: [your username]
fandom: [fandoms]
pairing: [paring]

ao3 link: [link]





This format was created by the absolutely wonderful [profile] backland.
