Submit everything to desudaily@gmail.com!

We all see this address and will respond from it.

General Information

  • It is acceptable to submit your own work, don’t be bashful! If we don’t know about your awesome creation we can’t post about it.
  • We receive many emails a day from a variety of sources. If you don’t receive an email from us in response to your submission, please don’t assume we ignored you. Not all messages will receive replies!
  • Patience! While we do queue a lot of things for the blog it doesn’t mean they will be posted instantly. Some things submitted may take up to a week or more to be posted, especially in the case of compilations.
  • Generally, it’s best to avoid things that are over 2 Weeks Old, especially on Youtube. Chances are it has already been posted or reviewed over that age. 

Fanfiction

While fanfiction on Desu Daily isn’t quite as in-depth or resource intensive as EQD, we still have general guidelines for submissions.

1. Make sure your submission is edited to the best of your ability. We will not post stories that are riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. While originally created for EQD, the Editor’s Omnibus can help you.

2. Your story should meet the following length requirements:

  • Multi-parters: 3,000+ words overall at submission time.
  • One-shots (complete, one-part stories): 1,500+ words.

3. We will not accept the following:
  • Stories with explicit sex or gore.
  • Incest and other broad cultural taboos.
  • Copy/paste stories (e.g. The text of Harry Potter with character names swapped out)
  • Stories written in a language other than English.
  • Stories involving real people (excluding celebrities)
  • Script format stories.

4. Be sure we can access your story when you submit it. Your story should be hosted on a public website, such as Fanfiction.net, Archive of our Own, your personal blog, or at least a publicly shared Google Doc. If the story is hosted outside of a fanfiction archive, please make sure each chapter (if there’s more than one) has a link to get to the other chapters so readers can easily follow your story.
5. When submitting, please include the following information:
  • Story title
  • Link to cover art (if not provided, we’ll find cover art for you)
  • Link to the story
  • Primary genre tags (See below)
  • Author name
  • Short description (if the story doesn’t include one)
  • Main character(s)
  • Story status (Complete/Incomplete)
Genre tags are as follows: [Slice of Life][Adventure][Comedy][Crossover][Dark][Random][Sad][Shipping]

Pictures and Comics 

Generally everything is allowed. Try to preface your email with COMIC or ART. Also try to include in your email the source link of the picture or comic if you can, preferably from DeviantArt if that is an option.

  • No porn.
  • No gore.
  • Entries that don’t make it won’t always receive a refusal message

Plushies, Crafts, Cosplay, Customs

In regards to plushie, craft, and custom submissions, please preface your emails with either Plushie, Craft, Custom, or Cosplay when submitting. Please provide a source link with your email if you can, preferably from DeviantArt.
  • Customs are created from modified official merchandise. If your piece falls under this criteria, please send it in with the Custom tag in the subject line.
  • Crafts extend to everything outside of modified merchandise and plushies. If your piece fits that criteria, please send it in with the Craft tag in the subject line.
  • Plushies include everything from standard plushies, needle felt, crotchet, ect. If your piece fits this criteria, please send it in with the Plushie tag in the subject line.
  • Cosplay is handled a bit differently, but feel free to send in pictures of people dressed as ponies regardless.

General Hints and Tips for Submission

  • When submitting, try to submit only clear and well lit pictures. Blurry and dim pictures detract from your piece and may end up in it being rejected despite the quality of the work.
  • Please try to submit pictures that don’t have watermarks on them. If you want to keep a watermarked image on your official gallery that is fine, but please include with your submission a copy of the non-watermarked image.

AMV’s, Music, Animation

These will end up in the media section of the blog.

  • No porn
  • No Gore
  • Entries that don’t make it won’t always receive a refusal message
  • Youtube/Vimeo/Deviant Art links only. No other embeds, or direct files.
  • Desu Daily only takes anime/manga related music.  These can be inspired by an anime or manga  in the case of an instrumental piece.

News, Merchandise, and Everything Else

We miss a lot of news, so it’s a huge help when you guys send us something newsworthy. We honestly don’t mind if three hundred people send us the same news – just go for it! Just try to preface your email with NEWS or INTERESTING THING.

Please, don’t send download links though. Upload your stuff somewhere to stream or play it directly.

OPTIONAL: When you do submit, if you would like us to credit a Twitter account, feel free to include one.  Do note though that this will only apply to the person that submits something first so be quick!
