Hello, and welcome to Quiet Laughter, a community dedicated to the yaoi pairing of Trowa Barton and Duo Maxwell from the Gundam Wing anime series!
This community was created because... well, because there wasn't one like it. XD I hope that through this community I can both meet and bring together fans of this [rather uncommon] pairing, so that we can all bask in our fixation/obsession/addiction mutual romantic preference together. X3
Anyone and everyone is welcome to join this community. Fanfiction and fanart are both completely welcome. However, there are a few things you should know about the comm beforehand.
The most obvious rule: the 2x3x2 (or 2+3+2) pairing MUST be the sole focus of anything posted in this community, or the MAIN and/or MAJOR pairing in addition to others. (For example, you can post a 2x3x2 fanfiction that has 1x4 as a side pairing.) Please remember that the focus of this community is the 2x3x2/2+3+2 pairing.
Fanworks of all genres are welcome here. From sweet and sappy to dark and horrific: this comm welcomes them all!
Also welcome here are friendship fics and fics with a "hinted at" relationship (i.e. the two are not in a romantic relationship, but there are subtle "hints" towards one). As long as it's got Trowa and Duo together, it works!
Flames will not be tolerated. This is meant to be a peaceful, fun-loving community, and I don't want anyone being yelled at for their personal beliefs, thoughts, or point-of-views. If anyone feels that they are being abused by a fellow member, feel free to contact me and we can work it out.
If anything you post contains adult content, PLEASE mark it as such. That means graphic sex, excessive profanity, the works. Thank you!
While I'm expecting fanfiction and artwork to be the main contributions to the community, posts are not limited to just the two. Found a cool 2x3x2/2+3+2 picture somewhere on the net? Feel free to share it! Got a doujinshi featuring the two? Drop it on by! Have a discussion/debate/rant involving the pairing that you want to share and/or get off your chest? Post it here! As I said before, if it involves both Trowa and Duo, it's welcome here! (Just remember to be nice to each other, okay? XD)
NO SPAM, PLEASE! Also, while I'm thinking about it, please try and watch the spelling/grammer errors, not only in posts, but fanfics as well. If English is not your first language, I understand; no pressure if you happen to make spelling/grammer mistakes. Occasional netspeak is fine (heck, I use it every so often), but please don't use it in excess (unless it's being used for a humorous effect). I'd like to keep this community as literate as possible. Thank you! (Sorry, this is just a little pet peeve of mine. XD)
Last but not least, when posting a fanfic, please include a title, a rating, any genres, any warnings (spoilers, character deaths, etc.), and a brief summary. And lastly (as you can most likely predict), please post lengthy fics behind a cut; shorter works don't need to be cut unless you personally choose to do so. Thanks! <3
