Hello my good viewers! Yes, it has been over a year since my last update. I would like to now apologize and tell you why it has been taking so long. Note- taking. Not took, as in it's ready (not yet), or took as in I quit writing. As I've said before, I never quit an unfinished story.

I now have a new laptop. Sometime after the virus wiped the first draft about half way through, an electrical surge about 5-6 months ago wiped out the WHOLE DAMN COMPUTER. I know it's been a long wait, but please bear with me- I want to finish this story too!

But there is another reason I have come back from the dead today. I know some of you have heard already, but for those that didn't, they are taking down stories with lemons and extreme violence, even if they were rated M, since there hasn't been an MA rating since 2002. I understand that it's been kind of illegal since 2002 (though I only learned it yesterday), and appreciate how kind the admins have been to let authors slide on that one. However, besides the stories written for smut, or as snuff stories, there are a LOT of now really long, very excellent stories that happen to have a little excessive violence, or one or two scenes of lemon, in an otherwise amazing work of fanfiction. It seems a real tragedy to permanently delete them. While I'm pretty sure my story can get clear from all of this craziness (we've had a few scenes named after fruit, but none got as far as lemons, and none of my violence has been that excessive), I'm hoping you'll help save a lot of good stories. Please take the time to email the support, and if you have stories, pass this along.

Greetings to the fine folks that moderate our site.

Myself, along with many, have been writing and posting on your fine site for years now, some of the better examples of up and coming writers out there are now suddenly finding some of the stories we've come to love at risk of being removed without the chance to even rectify our errors.

For some, that means the permanent loss of a story. While I don't have anything that I believe violates your terms of use, there are those out there that are never able to recover a story in its original form, this is something I find to be almost worthy of a legal action, as while we cannot claim ownership of a character, the stories are OURS and simply destroying them is something that is inexcusable.

It's quite easy to simply add an MA rating, additional filters or even a simple requirement for a free membership to read the stories presented here, and would cut down on hateful anonymous reviews and posts at the same time, so I have to question as to why such a thing, in all this time, simply wasn't added.

If you're worried about falsification of a registration then have an appropriate disclaimer and then there can be no dispute, you took your steps and the PARENTS didn't monitor their children, if that is even your concern. If it is more of a personal view or desire then please at least let people know and give them a chance to remove a story that you and yours find offensive, most people on the site are actually rather cordial when it comes to such requests.

While I cannot say for sure if this letter will even reach those that may be willing to listen, or if it's more akin to a wide spectrum purge in preparation for something bigger, please understand that you are going to be losing a LARGE number of your writers, and thus your income from a lack of readers if there is not some level of action taken to help with this situation.

For those that may agree with this, please feel free to sign on and send this to the support server, maybe we can get some movement on this.

If you could do what some other authors have done and post this petition as a temporary new chapter on some of your stories to help spread the word? It would help a lot, it's how I found out about this.
