First, your featured stories. The theme for September is Books in honor of Banned Books Week, which happens annually at the end of September and celebrates books that have been banned or challenged by encouraging students (and everyone else) to read them, despite the fact that they may not be found in the school library. More information is available on their website. Now onto your featured stories:
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 by Mozart (Hunger Games, 17+)
Perks and Perverts by Hakkyou Kaosu (Fruits Basket, 13+)
Potatoes by Pendragon (Discworld, 13+)
The Genius and Mediocrity by mangamaniac48 (Artemis Fowl, 17+)
Congratulations to the four of you.
The theme for October is Lunaescence Spooktoberfest. You can nominate stories in this thread on the forums.
Additionally, there will not be a fic trade in September, due to the start of school for many of our users, but there will be one in October. Keep an eye out for signups in next month's announcements.
There's just one little reminder this month. We have recently seen some issues where people who use the br or p tags to format some paragraphs and double space to format others have their stories turn into walls of text. They look fine on our validation page, and they probably look fine if you preview them. The issue seems to occur only after they are posted. In order to avoid this issue, you should either use only one method (either double spacing or using HTML tags, not the combination) or check your stories after they are posted/validated to make sure that this is not affecting you and edit if necessary.
Have a lovely September.
