Merry August! I’d like to begin this month’s update with something fun, because this is going to be a long post. So, here are all the featured stories of the month! The theme is music.
Black Velvet and Southern Comfort by SoundofSapphire (Yu-Gi-Oh!, Adult)
In Step by Byakko-chan (Devil May Cry, 17+)
Snap on Me by ViViD Eminence (Kingdom Hearts, Youth)
Then I Did by Perfect-to-stay (Fruits Basket, Youth)
Vampires, Villains and Violins by Penguiduck (Original, 17+)
White Keys, Red Satin by Isis san (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, 17+)
Congrats to all the winners! Nominations are now open for September’s featured stories. The theme this month is war stories.
Now, I want to take the opportunity to welcome all of our new members! :) It’s good to see you all! Here’s a bit of an overview on the site. Lunaescence is a moderated archive, meaning that we screen all stories from unvalidated authors for grammar, spelling, and punctuation. If your story is not accepted, you will get an email explaining why, so be sure to check the email linked to your Lunaescence account as often as possible!
Additionally, if you ever want to contact us about anything whatsoever, here’s a list of active mods:
Sharp Shiny Pickle
A number have contact information on their profiles, or you can use the “Contact Us” feature there, though it’s not always guaranteed to work.
If you like it here, decide to stay, and want to apply for author validation in a few months, you can find information on that here.
Our last message to new members is that Lunaescence has proper categories and spaces for summaries. As such, you should not indicate the fandom or pairing of your story in your title. Furthermore, please avoid using decorative symbols in titles. Besides looking unprofessional, decorative titles often do not display properly on certain computers or phones, resulting in a bunch of boxes that nobody can understand. Please, stick to regular titles!
Sorry to hammer you with all that information! Guess we’ll finish off with something entertaining, which is Round 3 of the 2011 Summer Fic Trade. This round will be a little bit different, as all fics will be posted anonymously and a guessing game will be made of it. Go check it out!
