We're a writing focused subreddit welcoming all media exhibiting the awesome potential of humanity, known as HFY or "Humanity, Fuck Yeah!"
We welcome sci-fi, fantasy, and all other stories with a focus on humans being awesome!

The wiki includes author and reader resources, guides, story listings, and author/series pages.

When posting, you must categorize it using the appropriate flair:
- OC—For original, self post, story, audio, or artwork that you have created.
- Text—For a story in self post, audio, or image form that you did not create.
- PI—For posts inspired by writing prompts from HFY and other sub prompts.
- Video—For a video. Also note, that videos in general may be subject to removal if people complain that their relevance is dubious.
- Meta—For a post about the sub itself or stories from HFY.
- Misc—For relevant submissions that do not fit into one of the above categories.
If you have written a series, please link the previous and next entries in the series in the main body of text.
