LGBT Fiction Guide Policy on RPF and RPS
Although, like fanworks in general, RPF and RPS represent an enormous de facto archive of LGBT-themed literature and art, the LGBT Fiction Guide will not discuss RPF/RPS characterizations or ships involving living persons to avoid confusion about their sexuality and private lives.
