Hello everyone, and happy New Year~ あけましておめでとう！ ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! Bonne année! Felice Anno Nuovo! ...okay, I'm done abusing Google Translate now.
Mods have been discussing modly business, so a couple different reminders this month~ First off, please
try to make sure your author's notes, summaries, and titles (chapter and story) also follow basic spelling and grammar rules, not just the content! We won't decline anything based on mistakes there, but it's always nicer to see them done correctly, plus people are probably more likely to read if the summary doesn't have, say, five spelling errors. Another thing: the site does say that all fanfiction in this archive is copyright the owners of the original series, but it never hurts to reiterate that in your own stories. It's a good idea to add a disclaimer in your author's notes or something, if only to avoid potential legal trouble.
Now that I'm done lecturing at you all, features~ The theme for January is the "best of 2009," or stories that were started in the past year.
Beginnings 1: Peacemaker

Congratulations to these six authors~
Nominations are now open for February 2010 featured stories. The theme, I think, will be ~ROMANCE~, since February has a certain day of the year that makes candy sales spike almost as much as Halloween does. If you would like to nominate, please do so on the forum post
and read the rules in the first post. Questions/comments/complaints/tomatoes/wishing each other happy New Year in languages I don't know goes here. :D
