Welcome to December, Lunatics! Is your holiday season as hectic as mine? Life has just gotten away from me!

Let's take some time to bring the holiday spirit to Luna with some exciting things! But first… please donate if you are able! We are still slowly working our way towards our goal. If you love Luna and wish to see it continue on for years to come, click here to donate to our fundraiser.

Events

The Holiday FicTrade is underway! If you didn't have a chance to participate, hopefully you'll have time next time! For those who are participating, happy writing! Our next event will be in the March-April time period!

Challenges

Our November challenge was "NO Shame November", which was unfortunately not very inspiring… So let us try again!

This month, our challenge is taking on a different spin! It's called "12 Days of Winter Writing". If you are in need of some help getting those creative juices flowing, this is the challenge for you! Click here for more information!

Monthly Features

Our theme was "Happy Holidays", but nobody nominated! In the spirit of still having features, I will start randomly pulling a story from a different genre each month if there are no user nominations. So… here we go!

Just a Myth by Straw (the Avengers, 17+)

Next month, our theme will be "Best of 2018". Click here and nominate your favorite story from 2018!

We'll see you in the new year! :D

Great news everyone! We are over halfway to our fundraising goal of $10,000! This is thanks to each person that has donated and shared the fundraiser. With your help, we will be able to reach our goal in no time. Don’t forget that we have incentives for those of you that donate. Click here to see what kind of goodies are being offered or to donate.

Events

As we mentioned last month, we will be hosting a Fic Trade in December! We'll be doing a few things slightly differently. Mainly… you will have more time!

Holiday 2018 Fic Trade Timeline:

November 1st - Registration opens.
November 30th – Registration closes.
December 3rd - By this date, you should have received your recipient.
December 18th - All fics under 5,000 words due.
December 19th- IF NEEDED, Spares will be given their prompts.
January 5th - All fics over 5k due.


“What exactly is a fictrade?” you ask? Well, close your eyes. Picture a magical place where you could put out an idea for a fic, and a wonderful stranger over the internet would write it for you. Okay, now open your eyes. You could be at that place right now! Good on you! This is basically a gift exchange but with fics. Remember, to get one, you must write one. If you’re interested in joining in or learning more about it, you can pop in here! Registration begins November 1st and will close on November 30th, so you have lots of time to decide if you’d like to participate. It’s sure to be a blast! Hope to see you there. ;)

Challenges

October's monthly challenge was Pumpkin Spice and Everything …Nice? Sadly, it seems nobody was able to meet the challenge this month.

November’s challenge is NO Shame NOvember. The idea of this challenge is to rewrite an old story you’ve shared. For more information, click here!

Featured Stories

Our nomination theme for November was Doubletake. Unfortunately no stories were nominated.

The theme for December’s featured stories is Happy Holidays. With all the holidays that are coming and going, this seems like a good time to celebrate ALL OF THEM. Nominate ANY HOLIDAY story here!

 

Spooktacular October

Have you heard of Trick-Or-Treating for a cause? Maybe your cause this year can be Luna! We are still working on our fundraiser for Luna! Please consider donating if you have some spare change! You can find out more about it: here. No amount is too small!

Events!

Firstly, there are some changes to these in the works! We will no longer be having monthly events. Instead, we're going to have roughly 4 events a year. 'Why?' you ask? Life has just been too crazy on our end to really go that extra mile for you guys during events. If we drop the number down, we can spend more time organizing the events to make sure they're a real pleasure to participate in and run as smoothly as possible!

In December, we will be having our Holiday FicTrade as always! With a few twists… most notably that registration for the FicTrade will run the entire month of November! This gives you guys more time to sign up… and also to write! Writing will be the entire month of December instead of just the 2.5 weeks it has been in past years.

Around March or April (we haven't pinned down an exact timeline yet), we will be having a Round Robin writing spree! Keep your eyes peeled for more details on that once the new year has rolled around.

Challenges!

'So… what about challenges?' you may ask. Have no fear! Monthly challenges are here to stay! As are the monthly features!

September's monthly challenge was the "Silver Linings" Challenge. Unfortunately… we forgot to post a forum link for responses! Please comment with the name of your challenge response and I will add it here!

October's monthly challenge is: "Pumpkin Spice and Everything …Nice?" For more info, check out our forum post: here. Please leave responses! :D

Featured Stories

Our nomination theme was "Doubletake" for October. However… we just really didn't feel like making a forum post for it last month. So we will ALSO be using "Doubletake" as our nomination theme for stories to be featured on the November announcements. Please go nominate on our forum post: here.

Closing Remarks

Everyone has been having a CRAZY 2018, it seems. So we understand that Luna has been a little slow. But WE ARE STILL HERE. Show us your love for Luna and nominate a feature, respond to the challenge, or eagerly await our next event! :D

We'll see you in November! Happy haunting until then~!
