Hello you wonderful members of the Lunaescence Archives!

Got some spare time? Ever wish you could be a bigger part of this lovely community? Do you want to be the very best like no one ever was?

All Pokémon jokes aside, we are, as promised, opening up moderator applications! But don’t be fooled! Being a moderator is hard work. We are looking for people that are mature and able to handle member inquiries, able to sort through the queue, have a general understanding of the English language, and are willing to dedicate their time and effort to Lunaescence.

Still interested? Here are the basic requirements:

• You must be a validated author or currently eligible for author validation (at least 5 stories or chapters with at least 5,000 words total, and no denials in the past 60 days) to apply.
• You must also be a member of the site for at least six months and be a minimum of 16 years of age, 18+ preferred.
• Please also consider that you will be asked to read outside of your fandoms and will be asked (within reason) to read content that you may not like, such as lemons, original fiction, and OOC stories.

Think you have what it takes? Then please send us an email at moderators.luna[at]gmail[dot]com with “Moderator Application” as the subject title and include the following information:

• Your Lunaescence username
• Roughly how much time you realistically feel you can dedicate to moderating and when you’re available
• What you think the biggest problems with stories on the site are
• Links to 3 samples of your writing that you feel are your best work

“I really want to help out, but the only times I’m available are during summer and winter. I guess that means I can’t apply...” Having this thought? No worries! You are still more than welcome to apply for a moderator position. Although year round coverage is ideal, we also understand that life gets in the way (we completely understand--really). That’s why we are also offering part-time positions. We just ask that you please state you are only available during those specific times. After all, it never hurts to have a bit more help during the busiest times of the year!

The deadline for applications is May 1st. We ask that you all remain patient and respectful during the moderator process. And as always, we thank you for your cooperation and support.

We hope to hear from those who are interested!

Drip, drip, drop, little April Shower, beating a tune as you fall all around~!

This month’s theme is April Antics!

Don't Hold the Wall by UneAmielmaginaire (One Piece, 17+)
Man's Best Friend by Kamisori (Naruto, 17+)
My Little Roomie by Cake (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, 17+)
Darum Liebe Ich Dich by ErPo (Axis Powers Hetalia, Adult)
Ah...f*ck by littleduck (Yu Yu Hakusho, 17+)
Daily Lives of Military Boys by Paako (Shingeki no Kyojin, Youth)

Congrats to our nominated authors! Next month’s theme is New Beginnings -- anything that involves new life, a new start, new ideas, etc! Nominate here in the forum. we’re not really banning the word “orbs.” That was an April Fool’s joke. On the other hand...

Your friendly neighborhood mods would like to remind you all about submissions really quickly.

First, please DO NOT submit multiple chapters of the same story to the queue. We will delete them automatically, which wastes our time and yours. The reason why this is is because if one chapter is not validateable, the rest of them are likely not either. Also, with multiple mods working on the queue at a time, we may not validate them in order, which may cause problems.

Second, mind your ratings! If you need a brief summary of what each rating entails, please look at our rules section. If you have any specific questions, you can email the moderators. Just as a rule of thumb, it’s better to rate higher if you’re unsure.

And finally, DO NOT add multiple categories to drabble/one-shot booklets unless the category has already been addressed. Otherwise, this only clutters categories and misleads readers.

With that said, onto more exciting news!

We are opening up moderator applications! We are looking for applicants who have the time to help with the queue, are mature and fair, and who have a solid understanding of the English language. Please be on the lookout for another post for more information and instructions for applying! If you have any questions, feel free to email a moderator or the joint moderator account at

Here is a list of currently active mods:

  • Alastair
  • dark_wing19
  • DragonSilk
  • Kerrigan Sheehan
  • Penguiduck
  • perfect-to-stay

And finally, as an update from Sally, we currently have $1,161.64 in the Paypal account.

Have a wonderful month of April, everyone!

It is our deep regret that we will be banning the word "orbs" from the archive when used in the context of eyeballs. Quite frankly, it makes the moderators roll their eyeballs when they see it. It's not cute, and it's not funny. It's really getting staler than Mary-Sue. You have 60 days to remove all instances of the word "orb" from your stories or you will receive a temporary ban that lasts exactly 2.56 seconds.

Thank you.
