About Lunaescence Archives

The Lunaescence Archives is an online library dedicated to quality works of literature. This site is intended to be a safe haven for both writers and readers who have become disenchanted with larger, open online archives. Quality is of paramount importance at Lunaescence Archives and we strive to provide a community where quality works can be viewed and appreciated.

We believe that no one should have to dig to find a quality story.

We also understand the frustration many writers feel when stories they’ve put a great deal of effort into are buried under pages of badly-written, yet popular, stories. Due to these issues, we have chosen to moderate submissions for spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Certain aspects of a submission, such as character portrayal or plot choices, are not factored into the moderation process. Only grammatical aspects of a story are considered in the moderation process.


A Brief History

Site founders Sally and Jasson opened their first Web site in January of 1999, which was a fan-page for the anime Yoroiden: Samurai Troopers and its North American version called Ronin Warriors. It was called "The Ronin Dungeon" and offered a little bit of everything concerning this anime including fan fiction, fan art, information, and links. Unfortunately, time constraints eventually led to an extended hiatus in 2003 and permanent closure in early 2004.

Shortly after that Web site went on hiatus, they purchased Lunaescence.com -- though it didn't reach its current incarnation until mid- 2004. Submissions for Lunaescence were opened shortly after FanFiction.net stopped allowing stories with adult content and deleted the accounts of anyone who wrote said stories. Since many of their favorite authors and friends had their accounts deleted, they offered their site as an alternative. Lunaescence.com was registered 19 May, 2003 and uses a heavily modified version of a script to house its growing library of fiction. The name "Lunaescence" is a play on words between the founders’ dog's name, Luna, and the word "Luminescence."

The two were combined, which produced Lunaescence.
