Yes, I know this is a little stupid, but a two months ago when I was a little newbie (even though I still am *cough*), all of the abbreviations on this website really confused me. That's why, I have to decided to make a glossary/abbreviation list for all to see. Yay!

Oh, and if any of my definitions need tweaking, just PM me. :] The same goes if you think of any abbreviations/definitions. Thanks muchly. <3

*****

AH - Alternate History (usually appyling to fanfiction): The same characters but with a different sequence of events that brought them to whatever takes place in the fanfiction.

AU - Alternate Universe (usually applying to fanfiction): Fanfiction generally related to the original fiction in some way, shape, or form, though the things have been changed to the author's liking. (For example, a Twilight fanfiction in which all characters are human).

BD - Breaking Dawn, the fourth novel in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga.

Canon - Original fiction. (For example, Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer, is canon).

CP - Often 'Critique Partner' (someone who you swap stories with to critique), can also be Current Project.

FF - Fan fiction.

KS - Kristen Stewart, the actress who plays Bella Swan in the movie Twilight.

LA - Literary Agent

MG - Middle Grade (Readers roughly between 8 and 12)

MS - Manuscript

NM - New Moon, the second novel in Stephenie Meyer's Twilight Saga.

PM - Private message. You can send those on this site. Yay us!

RPatz - Robert Pattinson, the actor who plays Edward Cullen in the movie Twilight.

SM - Stephenie Meyer, the author of Twilight.

WC - The Writer's Chronicle. (The current forum you're on!)

WIP - Work in Progress - the story someone is currently working on

YA - Young Adult. Stories aimed at the young adult market


Edit from Dae - I hope you don't mind me putting some extras in, Moonlight, and I also put them in alphabetical order to make it easy for people to find what they're looking for.

I elaborated on Middle Grade. Maybe I'm just out of it, but I didn't know what MG or Middle Grade was, so I just added in parentheses the age range. Thanks ReNu for the clarification! <3 Ren

@ReNu: Thanks! :] What do you mean "Middle Grade?" Like, middle school? Or a middle grade of novel? :/

@Emily: Thanks! :] And thanks for the suggestions, too.

@Imaginary: That's why I made it! >w< They confuse me, too.

Middle grade fiction is meant for readers between 8 and 12, as opposed to Young Adult (above 12)

Ren - I didn't know what Middle Grade was either. Well, I kind of knew, but only because I've asked someone about it before. I thought it was a more American thing - MG just doesn't exist in British bookshops. They'll break down children's into various age ranges, & YA, but that's all they are - age ranges, with no names like 'MG' attached. Interesting all the things you can learn on the internet Smile

Not that the classification is strictly observed. I've seen Dan Brown in MG and Anne of Green Gables in Adult!

I'm getting really scared. The mods are talking to me in my first post. xD

When they said they'd edit it, I didn't think they would leave messages for me. @_@ Oh well, now my post is better. Razz

In my opinion, I think this topic should be stickied (not a word, is it?). You know, just for...forum purposes or something. >w<
