GCFF is now accepting stories about other bands as main characters! To add a story featuring another band, you MUST upload it to the "Other Bands" category. This will make your story identifiable to other members that it is not GC-centric. Remember, you can select multiple categories so if your story is a GC/other band member pairing you can add it to both the GC side and the Other Bands category. Same submission rules apply.
Eventually the stories will be searchable by band name in place of characters. Unfortunately this is a manual process for the time being. If you have a story you would like to upload that features a specific band, you can contact us to have us add the band to the character list ahead of time. Or, add your story and we will create the band/character later and add it to your story. Once a band has been created, going forward you can simply select it in the Characters field when you add a story so that it will be searchable for other members.

If you've ever wanted to change your penname but keep your stories, reviews, favorites, etc. we have an opportunity for you! For just $1.00 USD we will change your penname to something of your choosing. Why charge for this? The one time fee will count towards the yearly fundraising and earn you a donator profile badge.

The boys have launched the official GC FAM fan club on their website, which includes perks such as old photos, videos (Cribs, Punk'd, old an new tour footage, etc.) as well as early access to "A G.C. Christmas, Part 1" which will officially be released this Friday, December 8th. As of right now there are three membership tiers to the fan club, a free "Associates", $10/year "Inner Circle" and $50/year "OG", the paid memberships containing more exclusive access and perks. I am unsure what all is included in the "Associates" and "Inner Circle" tiers seeing as I immediately threw money at the boys and signed up for the "OG" membership without thinking twice.
If you have not checked out the official GC FAM yet you can access it here. I have not had much of a chance to play around with the features yet but I am stoked that they are finally doing this and am excited to see what surprises they have up their sleeves!
