FAQ

additional FAQ may be added as the project progresses

Can I use AI for my art/writing?

No. Any use of AI will get you immediately disqualified from apps, kicked from the zine, and blocked from the project. We do not support AI tech for art/writing in any way, shape, or form.


Why no shipping?

Over half of zine projects are all about shipping. We would like to focus on appreciating Kirishima himself – his personality, his history, his platonic relationships with friends and mentors, and his adventures as a hero-in-training (or pro!!). It is nothing to do AGAINST shipping, we just would like to focus on the other stuff :D


Can my portfolio have ship art/writing in it?

Of course! Use your best works, shipping or not. It is only the zine pieces themselves that have to be gen.


WHAT IS SPOT ART?

Spot art is smaller illustrations that are set within the body of a story to illustrate what is happening at that point. These can be characters, objects, or small scenery. Backgrounds are not required, but are of course allowed! Think of the small illustrations on the title page of fiction novels.
Zine spot artists will be required to make at least 4-5 spot art illustrations for their assigned fic, but are encouraged to do more if they are able!
Spot art should be anywhere from 1"x1" to 3/4 page size (though we ask that not ALL of them are tiny! Variety is good). They do not need to bleed over the side of the page (we will have decorative fic borders!) but are welcome to if it suits the illustration.


How do I make a google drive folder?

You can find Google Drive tutorials Here


Is this zine for charity or for profit?

This project will be for profit. Funds will first be used to fulfill all orders and cover full bundles for each contributor as compensation. Any leftover funds after that will be split evenly among the contributors.


How many page artists / merch artists / writers will you be accepting?

This will depend upon interest check results! We need to keep the project manageable from both a modding and financial standpoint. An estimate may be made once IC closes, but exact numbers will not be decided until the time of application judging.


Will you be opening moderator applications?

Nope! Our Mod Team is complete <3


Will you email applicants regardless of acceptance?

Everyone will get an email response to the email address provided in their application, regardless of whether they are accepted as a contributor, accepted as a pinch hitter, or rejected from the project.


How will we submit files for check-ins and final submission?

Check-ins will be done by sharing Google Drive folder links in a google form, which will be provided to contributors at the beginning of each check-in. Please include your credit name in the file names & ensure share settings are set to “view by anyone with the link!”
Please put your name on your files :)
Please :')


Can you ship the zine and merch internationally?

Yep! Our only shipping restrictions will be to country-specific postal closings.


Why is shipping so expensive?

Because we cannot have nice things [insert crycat emoji here]Believe me, if we could, we would offer cheaper shipping. We do use Simple Export Rates through Pirate Ship, however, to reduce the costs as much as we can.


Will there be leftover sales?

Once shipping is complete and we are positive all customers and contributors have received their goodies, we will open a store to sell remaining stock! There is no promises on what will be remaining but we will be able to have at least some. Keep an eye on socials for any announcements related to the timing of leftovers - it depends wholly on production & shipping times.

Any FIC pieces must have trigger warnings listed at the TOP of the document.If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to DM us on social media or submit a question using our Ask Form.

At least one work sample
must be BNHA.


As of 6/6/2023:Due to popular demand, from this point forward, our applications will accept NSFW as part of the required samples. The mod team would like to still require (1) piece in your portfolio be SFW. This can include "finished" sketches or pieces without a background.SFW samples are still vastly preferred if they are available, but we understand that not everyone has SFW as part of their portfolios.Please keep ALL NSFW in Content Warning-labeled SUBFOLDERS. No drugs, alcohol, or abuse is allowed still.Per Mod Atlass's request, please avoid any shibari/bondage, as it is a bad trigger.
Not following our request to label CWs or avoid certain topics could result in disqualification.
Please know that all members of our team may not be comfortable viewing NSFW content, as this is a SFW project. Therefore, some apps may not be able to be graded by the entire team.Thank you for your understanding and for respecting the comfort of our mods!Also, thank you for your patience as we work to reflect these changes across all of our socials + carrd. Applications have already been updated in the portfolio sections.


Our applications will have a section for pitches. If you have ideas already, we'd love to hear them! Pitches are not required for applying.
Contributors will fill in a pitch form after accepting participation.
Writers will be expected to write at least one fanfic.
Page artists will be expected to create at least one page of artwork.
Spot artists will be expected to create 4-5 spot illustrations for their assigned fanfic.
Merch artists will be responsible for at minimum one piece of merchandise.
You may apply for multiple positions. For the most part, contributors will be selected to fill only one position.

The "spicy" add-on will be an additional piece for those participating. As such, we will not be accepting applicants JUST for the side project.

Pinch-hitters will be chosen from the pool of applicants based on moderator voting. There will not be the option to apply specifically as a pinch-hitter.

We will not be providing application portfolio feedback at this time. Thank you for understanding!

If you are accepted to this project, please note that you will be required to be responsive on Discord for Check-ins and Announcements. "Ghosting" for more than one Check-in will result in removal from the project.
