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+)

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!

Oh, gods, YES, please, let's enforce this x1000. I can't tell you how many times I've been annoyed to find out that a fic didn't have mentions of a certain show I wanted to read about even though the category was listed.

And good luck to all future mods and best of luck to all current mods - we all appreciate your hard work and time.

Like Zelos said THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT!!! It is sooooo obnoxious to search for a character or category and I see their name listed and I'm like OMG YAY!!!!...Only to see the story has one chapter and it's the intro to the book V_V so depressing...

Also it's still "illegal" to have more space than necessary in story summaries right? Like if there's five spaces between lines or whatever? I don't see it often but when I do it's just annoying that it takes up so much of the screen ^^; So was that rule relaxed? Or should we report it if we see it or what? @_@

Zelos & SacredTear - If you see it, send one of the moderators an email about it. We don't see every single thing on the site, just what goes through the queue and what we randomly find while browsing. Sometimes, validated authors do it, and we just don't see it. There aren't enough of us to fully sweep the archive, so we depend on users reporting these things when they see them.

SacredTear - People shouldn't have more than a double space between lines in summaries. It's probably an HTML issue, but, as with the massive category spam, please do let us know.

Hey mods :-)
I couldn't find anywhere to contact you so here I am !
It has come to my attention that one of my favourite authors, ViVid Eminence , is being banned ? She's hasn't even come online since 2012, and she's banned ! I'm pretty sure some of her stories does not have the word ' orbs ' or anything. And she's a really good writer, so why the ban ? Please reply soon, thank you.

If it's anything, please at least , just leave her stories on Luna. That would be amazing. Her stories are wonderful and I re-read them from time to time. Thank you!

@ chokoretonkokoro
She was banned long before now--in fact, I think 2012 was when she was banned. As for the deletion of her stories, that's a private matter that really shouldn't be disclosed to the public. Just know that we were required to remove her stories. Other than that, I can't really divulge anything else. We apologize for the inconvenience, but we really had no choice in the matter.

dark_wing19 pretty much covered everything worth saying. I would like to note, however, that this is a very inappropriate public inquiry, as the status of another member or his/her stories does not concern anyone else. In the future, please email the mods directly. The staff email is readily available in this news post and the active mods are also listed for contact.

I know I'm late to the party but I just wanted to say how freakin' happy the third reminder makes me. Drabble books with 30+ sections and two chapters dri/ove me insane.

Oh wow, I'm super delayed. Thank you for the nomination! ♥
