very much want your stories! If you think your writing isn’t
good enough, email us with the rough draft, and perhaps we can
help. If English is your second language, don’t worry about
all the little mistakes. We do our best to proofread things before
putting them onto the website.
we have these guidelines is to spare ourselves the pain of rejecting
stories and let you know in advance what we don’t accept.
Each of these items were added after a story crossed our paths
that we disliked for one or more of these reasons:
- We don’t
want pro-Rebel fiction that only mentions Imperials in passing
or depicts them as cardboard villains. We Imperial Chicks don’t
like it when our beloved men (and women) are only there to make
the Rebels look good by contrast.
- A story
with the Imperials being the bad guys is acceptable as long
as the story is about the bad guys…and the bad guys are
being cool. (Imperials being the good guys would be better!)
is welcome, but Imperial characters can’t be the target
of the joke and definitely can’t come off as looking stupid.
- Be careful
when writing about children in danger…we probably don’t
want to read about that.
- We really
don’t want stories about Rebel terrorist Princess Leia…unless
she’s repentant or has dumped her smuggler
boyfriend for one of our men.
- Keep the foul language and swear words to a
bare minimum. Better yet, do not use them at all…or
make up a word or oath that might be used by people in a moment
of anger/passion in the galaxy far, far, away. Our pet peeve:
“Oh, god” or “gods” as a casual exclamation
in a Star Wars story. In the GFFA, intelligent persons would
either consider or dismiss the existence of the Force. (There
was a “maker” in the OT, but it was mostly worshipped
- NC-17 stories are okay. Adult fiction is kept separate from our mostly PG and PG-13 offerings,
but absolutely NO SLASH is allowed. Think romance…think monogamy…think
male and female. (Yes, we’re old fashioned in that respect.)
Some of us Imp chicks do love to talk and read about sex though; our ancestors
have been enjoying sex for thousands of years, hence, us. (And
we strongly suspect that the denizens of the galaxy, far, far
away have been enjoying the same!)
- Any adult story we accept needs to have something definitely
Imperial about it plotwise. However, if you have established for half
a page that your characters are Imperial people living Imperial
lives, and then they go and make whoopee for ten pages…that
is wonderful and we want to see it.
- Any sort of disgusting perversions,
(ie. scatological references) incest, or graphic, sadistic violence
will be rejected outright.
- An Imperial forcing himself on a female is
acceptable only if the victim is definitely enjoying this. Otherwise,
it isn’t. We don’t want to hear about war crimes…unless
the Rebel Alliance is deemed responsible.
FINAL NOTE: The main purpose and goal of the Imperial Chicks website is the overt, shameless glorification
and romanticizing of Star Wars Imperial officers and soldiers. Any stories accepted for
this site must have the Imperials coming off as cool in some way…preferably
noble and heroic…but if not, at least capable and efficient.
Got it? Great! Now, start writing…and then
send us your story! (Check out

Along with your submissions, please send us a
brief summary that tells readers what the story is about. We are
hopeless at writing blurbs. (A “blurb” is the text
description on the back cover of a book designed to entice people
to read it!)
If your Imperial story is already archived on
your website or a public archive, just send us the link. Our standards
are slightly more relaxed when we link to another site…probably
because we don’t feel so responsible for the content.
