HalloWe have now commenced with the Halloween fanfic features, the first is up now and we will continue to feature spooky stories right up to Halloween to get us all in the mood. Let us know if you have any Halloween story suggestions.
We've added all the prompts that were posted on Twitter for Halloween last year here in case someone wants to write something :D
Some new fields have been added to the bio page such as favourite band member, what you like to write and read etc, don't forget to update yours!
Finally, you may have noticed that series are no longer listed on profiles anywhere, this is due to the high likelihood of this feature causing all the crashes we've been having lately. Unfortunately the coding for it isn't the best and I hope to not have to get rid of series altogether, for now you can still create and edit new ones, add stories to series, and access them from the stories themselves. Sorry for the inconvenience but the crashes are just getting way out of hand. Crossing our fingers we've seen the last of them but only time will tell.
UPDATE: For the meantime we have had to disable series, sorry guys! Contact us if you have any queries about this.

A Few ChangesHi everyone, this is just a quick note to let you know that the lovely Steinsgrrl (Mel) has decided to step down from running Tokio Hotel Fiction. She is still around, and she'll still be around on the site, but she feels it's time for her to move on. She wants everyone to know that she is glad to have helped and she loves everyone.
Please join us in thanking Mel for years and years of running this place, she has kept everything running smoothly and has done a lot to encourage writing, reading and reviewing fanfic during this time.
I have been looking after the site for a little while, but effective from today that is official.
We'd also like to thank our former mod Kirsten (mohanrocks) for her work on the site, Kirsten has moved on and doesn't really spend much time at THF.
Welcome to our new mod Kireinayorudakara!

Strange CharactersSome of you may have seen special characters not displaying correctly, we recently upgraded to a newer version of php and I think it was a result of that, it should now be fixed. Thanks!

Fic Banners & New TwitterHi everyone, you may have noticed a lot of broken fanfic banners on the site recently, this is due to Photobucket cutting off their external linking (hotlinking) unless you pay for the service. Photobucket was a popular image hosting service and I probably wasn't the only one who hosted all my banners there until recently. If your fic banners are broken, you can still log in to Photobucket to save your banner images and then upload them somewhere else like tinypic.com or any other similar image hosts. Also, if for some strange reason you happened to have saved fic banners from stories whose author's aren't around anymore please feel free to send them to us for rehosting :D
In addition to our main Twitter account, we now have one exclusively for story updates so you can get notified any time a new story gets posted or when any story gets updated. It will check for updates on the Recent Stories page every 15 minutes. The updates account is @thfupdate and if you hit the alert button (it should look like a little bell) then Twitter will send your phone a notification when stories are posted/updated. I was going to link it up to our main Twitter account but since I set the thfupdate account up for testing I figured we can keep it there and those who want to follow it can!
Thanks for reading and don't forget upcoming occasions you may want to start writing stories for such as the twins' birthday, Gustav's birthday, and oh yeah HALLOWEEEEEEEN.

New Step for RegistrationDue to all the spam reviews we have had to implement an extra step when registering a new account. You will be asked a simple question which all fans should know the answer to, the question and answer will be updated regularly. While this won't stop all the spam it should hopefully decrease the amount we get. If you have any problems registering please email us and we can assist you.

New skin, new poll!Thanks for celebrating Halloween with us, we had lots of fun and all the stories posted can be found in the Halloween 2016 series. You can always find Halloween fics under the Halloween tag too! Did you have a favourite Halloween story?
There were some requests for the burnt skin to remain, so a slightly edited version has been added permanently, named burntblack, for those of you who want to continue using it.
New poll is up! I was going to ask about VIP packages but then all the options would have just been 'Die, Treehouse, die'.

Happy Halloween!It's time to start posting those Halloween stories! So that it's easy for everyone to find them, please add your story to the Halloween 2016 series (if you go to the series and click 'Add to Series' it will bring up all your stories to choose from). If you have trouble, just put #THF Halloween somewhere in your story summary and we'll add it for you.
Have fun everyone!

Genres!Hello, fellow fic-loving Aliens!
Thank you to those of you who voted in the poll regarding "botTom" and bottom genres. We appreciate you sharing your opinion with us and we've taken your thoughts to heart. In response to the popular vote, we've added BottomBill, BottomGeorg, BottomGustav, and BottomTom to the list of genres. You will now be able to tag your stories appropriately and search by those genres.
Once again, thanks for your feedback! Suggestions are always welcome and we'd love to hear from you on our twitter, Facebook, or tumbrl.
In the meantime, have you heard there's a fest coming up? The Halloween Fic Fest stories can be posted starting October 24th. We hope you'll join us for some spooky stories in the week leading up to October 31st!

Halloween Fic Fest!Halloween is creeping up fast and we want to see your scary stories! Rather than a challenge, we thought it would be fun to just have a little fic fest and try to get as many Halloween themed stories posted as possible in the week leading up to October 31st. If you love scary fics as much as we do and have always wanted to write Georg as an axe murderer or Bill being chased by a possessed pumpkin, then please join us from October 24th for a week of spooky fun! There are no rules, the only set prompt is ‘Halloween’ which leaves it wide open for all kinds of chills and thrills. You don’t have to write anything scary or gruesome - funny/romantic/general Halloween themed fics are all welcome! You will not need to sign up for anything and those who choose to participate will be free to post their story (or stories!) any time during the week.
We will set up a Halloween 2016 series for you to add your stories to, so that everyone can find them easily. When you submit your story please make a note that it’s for the Halloween fest so we can make sure all stories get included!
If you want to join in but have no clue what to write, head to THFic Prompts for some awesome ideas! They will be adding more Halloween themed prompts closer to the time so make sure to follow them on Tumblr or on Twitter - @THFPrompts
If you’re wondering why we are talking about Halloween in August, it’s just because we want to give people plenty of time to get inspired and get writing :)

Feel It All Challenge
Members have been asking for this for a long time, and it is finally here: a new challenge from THF! And what better time to start than right in time for the second leg of the Feel It All tour? The theme for this one is simple:
Write a story based around 4 randomly paired phrases. Half of them will be taken from Kings of Suburbia lyrics, and half will be normal everyday items or ideas. For example, you might get a set like this:
hurts like love/into the daylight/blue lake/long wait
We are hoping to inspire writers to write from the themes of the album and transform them into something new. If you would like to enter, please read the details here!
We are so excited to see what you come up with and hope you all are excited too! Stories will start to be posted on September 13th, and voting for the top 3 stories will be held once they are all up. Get to it!

On behalf of the entire staff, I want to thank YOU for being here. Thank you for supporting the site, for sharing your time, energy and creativity! And thank you for continuing to support, in our own crazy way, this amazing group of goofy, incredibly talented men from Germany that we love.
