The GabeNath Book Club and Art Club Discord server (originally known as just GabeNath Book Club) is a public server for fans of the GabeNath relationship from Miraculous Ladybug. The server was created on November 21, 2019 and is currently active.
Shadowmayura is the founder of the server. dishwater-blondie and retsukige were also original moderators. On May 11, TheHopeElias was invited to join the mod team. In July, dishwater-blondie stepped down, and kissmyapplejuice, novatheastropirate, and MTwirl stepped in to provide more support.
The server currently has 100 members, and it continues to grow.
- Complete the #welcome-checklist.
- Please keep discussion to the appropriate channels. View channel descriptions if you are unsure.
- You are allowed (and encouraged) to request other fics to be featured! Just drop them in #fic-requests-📚. You can also suggest additional discussion channels. This can be for fics you've written or have read.
- Critique is NOT allowed unless specifically requested by the author, and only on the requested topic.
- The author has final say/control over channels related to their fics.
- No bullying, harassment, and other general unkindness. This applies to outside the server as well. If wind of it gets back to us, this will still earn a ban.
- Just use common sense.
- You are welcome (and encouraged) to invite others to the server, please just run it by one of the @👸 s first.
- Report any issues and arguments to a @👸. Do not intervene yourself. Once a mod has been tagged, we ask that all members refrain from speaking in that channel until the issue has been resolved. Backseat modding or other violations of this rule may result in a temporary mute.
- Everyone has pronoun roles. If you are referring to someone in the server, please check that you are using the correct pronouns first!
- We love our wonderful discussions here, but sometimes they can distract us from engaging with the work itself. Please make sure to comment/leave kudos/like/reblog/etc. if you discuss a fic in here!
- Remember that this is a GabeNath server. Other topics are allowed, but please use restraint. Frequent discussions of other fandoms may lead to a warning.
- Be mindful of rants, drama, salt, etc. We want this to be a place of free conversation, but we also don't want it to be a downer.
- No venting or attention seeking behavior. If you have a pattern of being excessively negative, self-deprecating, or sharing TMI, we may ask for you to tone it down.
- When sharing fic, art, or posts, please share with a link to the original work.
- No politics or controversial topics please. Let's try to keep it lighthearted.
- Keep all Miraculous Ladybug spoilers in the dedicated spoiler channels (active only during new seasons). Please refer to our pinned spoiler policy in those channels before discussing new Miraculous Ladybug episodes.
- When discussing spoilers of off-topic shows/movies/books etc., be mindful of others in the server. Give fair warning before starting the conversation. If asked to move to a relevant server or to DMs, please do so. And remember Rule 12.
- If you need a break from the server, please mute it rather than leaving. Reentry may eventually be denied depending on the circumstances.
- Proxies for Club fics are not allowed, and we cannot allow another member to manage your fic. If you wish to have special channels for your fic, such as spoiler channels, you must manage them yourself. If an author of a Club fic is not part of the server, their links channel will automatically open up to all members for new chapter notifications, and any special channels will be deleted.
The server features channels for creative inspiration, sprints, help, brainstorming, commissions info, artist stores, and resources for writers and artists. Prompts channels house hundreds of plot bunnies. There is also a channel with fashion inspiration.
In July, Writers' Workshops were implemented.
In-depth Fic Discussion
Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of the server are the categories designated for ongoing GabeNath fics. These categories include links and updates to the fics, discussion channels, spoiler channels for the authors to give sneak peaks, speculation channels, meme channels, fanart channels, and more! The emphasis on these fics increases engagement and helps the fandom grow.
As most servers do, the GabeNath Book Club and Art Club includes an off-topic channel for general socializing. There are also streaming channels, voice chat channels, party rooms, and best of all, Cards Against Humanity channels with a custom server deck.
In January 2020, the GabeNath Mini Bang was announced, which is officially partnered with the GabeNath Book Club and Art Club. The first cycle of the challenge completed in June 2020. Later in the month, the GabeNath Reverse Bang was announced, which will begin in July 2020.
Sometimes unaffiliated events are featured on the server. In June 2020, the GabeNath Wedding Style Pile was shared to the Book Club and Art Club members.
