This template is intended for use in fiction sections, allowing for cross-references to the source of the history being discussed, without needing to break the flow of the story or use footnotes.

In non-fiction sections, it's better to refer to the work of fiction normally, e.g., "The first episode of Digimon Adventure is 'And so it begins...'."

This template accepts two arguments, the first should be the article being linked to, and the second is an optional description which will appear as the link text. If the second argument is omitted, the text of the link will default to the name of the article being referenced.

{{storylink|And so it begins...|Adrift? The Island of Adventure!}}
{{storylink|And so it begins...}}

These examples are rendered in the dummy text below, in the same order:
