FFN is finally implementing a NOTES feature for us! Everyone, REJOICE because this means you will soon be able to get your protests out without violating the guidelines and TOS! THIS IS GOOD NEWS!
Also, I have seen rumors that FFN and AFFN are affiliated with one another. THIS IS NOT TRUE. FFN is only affiliated with FictionPress, their sister site. AFFN was created shortly after the ban in 2002 on the MA rating so that you could go somewhere to put up stories containing sexual content. It is run by fans and not by the staff of FFN. It is a completely separate site that requires you to be over the age of 18 to read, post, and be a member. FFN and AFFN are completely separate. They are in no way connected or affiliated with one another.
Members of FFN that are revolting against the mass purge of stories that has been happening. Please read and understand this: I support you. I understand what you are going through, but VIOLATING THE TOS and GUIDELINES that we have all agreed to is NOT the answer. You are, instead, further the deletion of your own stories. Please, please reconsider posting this petition as a story chapter. Please take a moment to read the Guidelines and TOS to be sure you know exactly what you are protesting.
Since 2002 FFN banned the Fiction Rating MA which is defined as "contains explicit material FOR ADULTS ONLY" which, as some of you may know, is similar to the movie rating NC-17. Before 2002 you could post all the fictional porn you damn well wanted on this site. I remember back then, when I first unearthed FFN, that they had a system in place that WARNED you the content you desired to read was for 18 and older. You had to click YES.
Now there is no warning in place and as such there is no setup to PROTECT FFN from the furious parents. All that sex and porn related stories on this site are out in the open for CHILDREN who should not, in any manner of the word, read porn. Oh sure you have ten year olds hunting down porn sites, its normal, and parents don't always monitor what their children do on the internet, but the fact remains. FFN is LIABLE for all this stuff you put up because they have no system set in place to make their asses covered.
The Ratings Violations are a big problem on this site. We may not know or wish to recognize this, but this "purge" has long been coming. What you need to understand is this: If you want CHANGE then DO NOT BREAK THE RULES for it. That only makes things worse. Notes or non-story content are not allowed as story chapters. This is a basic Guideline which has remained unchanged since 2008. People violate this every day, and I understand the need to keep in touch with your readers. However this won't change, and FFN won't add in any more ways to keep in touch or will even change their guidelines, without prompting from you.
THIS MEANS THE FOLLOWING instead of copying the protest and placing it in your stories, copy it and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org where it SHOULD go. Try and make suggestions for ways the site could be better, such as a way to protest violation claims, or to have violations claims made clearer. For the area that violates the TOS and GUIDELINES to be highlighted and to have time given to CORRECT the violation. Sometimes we violate the rules and we don't even realize it.
The letter that has been going around has made other, wonderful suggestions. Such as making FFN entirely members only. That upon signing up you MUST give your age, which will then restrict what levels of story you could read. That stories can only be READ by members. Membership, of course, would be free. This would do away with "anonymous" reviews that leave you unable to get in contact with your reviewers, and help lower spam. The membership could come with an outright disclaimer and mention that some content within may be inappropriate for children, thus covering FFN's asses on the legal end. Then the site could, perhaps, allow the return of the MA rating and clear a good portion of the stories on this site that happen to be in violation.
I URGE YOU ALL to stop reposting the letter you are finding as chapters. It is not going to help. IT IS A VIOLATION OF THE GUIDELINES even. Instead send them your thoughts and your protest to email@example.com That way your voice will be heard. That way your protest will count.

Reproduction Theory In Destiny's Calling
Reproduction in this story/universe is a bit...convoluted. It doesn't matter what 'gender' you display or if the pairing is 'hetero' or 'homo' sexual. In a hetero pairing the guy can get pregnant instead of the girl, it all depends on certain factors...
First of all in determining mother or father of any ghostly parent you have to look at base power levels. The ghost with the most raw power is automatically the father. This is because the father is expected to protect its pregnant mate in the later months of pregnancy, and is expected to protect its young and mate after birth.
Conversely the mother is the ghost with more control meaning they have less raw power than their mate, but they have a greater control of what power they do have. The reason for the greater control is simply because the mother is the ghost who will teach their children how to use their powers, and will be the ghost to 'extract' the child from its protective sac. The mother will also be expected to contain any untoward accidents the developing child may have, and will, during gestation and growth of the pregnancy, be feeding controlled amounts of their own ectoplasm to the ectoplasmic sac, including taking amounts of ectoplasmic energy from their mates and feeding it to the child.
The Ectoplasmic Sac
Pregnancy between two pairs happens directly after the first copulation. It's an almost instantaneous response. For this reason ghosts do not have sex with multiple partners or have anything such as a quickie or whatnot. The exchange of energies created during sex automatically forms the ectoplasmic sac.
The ectoplasmic sac is a glowing green ball of ectoplasmic energy. It is very durable and connected to the mother by a thin, but extremely hard to destroy, umbilical cord. A child forms outside the mother in the ectoplasmic sac and is only visible by family members of the mother and father ghost.
While pregnant, like a human pregnancy, the mother will go through a phase of 'morning sickness' which happens during the first few months of forming. This is because the mother is not used to the draw on his or her energy, and thus makes them sick. The 'morning sickness' can include either throwing up of food (if the ghost partakes in such, which many of the Zone do because it is a form of quick energy) or throwing up of raw ectoplasm (very rare and very dangerous)
Throughout the pregnancy the mother will exhibit emotional distress and moodswings, cravings for random food or cravings for sex (the proferred method of energy transfer/energy gaining), increased girth due to the amount of excess energy (the mother has to increase energy intake levels for the child and themselves). At the ending phase of the pregnancy (around ten to twelve months) the mother will grow weary or tired and, when the child is ready to be birthed, the mother will fall asleep for up to three days to a week. When they awaken they will immediately have to cut the umbilical cord, which will have weakened enough to be cut by the mothers energy only. Once the umbilical cord is removed the ectoplasmic sac will degenerate. The father should be present to hold the newborn and the sac during the cutting, otherwise the baby may collapse to the ground and perish. Most child deaths happen because of this lack of attendance.
On Miscarriage or Abortion it is important to understand that the ectoplasmic sac is very strong and does not damage easily. However the easiest way for a miscarriage or abortion to happen is to physically damage the mother enough that they cannot risk giving any more energy to the child lest they kill themselves and the child. In this case their instincts will take over and they will view the forming child as a threat to their continued existence, as a leech upon their energy, and end the threat. They will cut off all energy flow to the ectoplasmic sac and attempt to sever the umbilical cord shortly thereafter. Most mothers die in a miscarriage or abortion due to overextending what little energy they do have in getting rid of the child. For this reason the father is vastly overprotective of its pregnant mate and will do anything to make sure they are not damaged to that point.
An abortion is rarely if ever attempted because of the high death rate of the mother. It is also the reason why most ghosts do not have sex unless they are certain that they want a child.
After the first pregnancy and first copulation to impregnate the mother again is significantly harder and takes much more time and effort. Needless hours of either constant copulation or continually days of copulation, one after another, will not even create a dent in how much energy is required for a second, third or forth pregnancy. In fact it is suggested to have years of constant sexual contact if the ghost parents wish to try for another child, as it will take years for the energy levels to reach a peak after pregnancy. Usually a second or third pregnancy will happen after the first child has matured enough to survive entirely on its own. This can be between ten to fifty years. Average is around thirty years.
There you go. All you need to know about this family, and ghostly reproduction in the Destiny's Calling universe. Needless to say...there is a lot of sexual frustration XD
SOME OF THE IDEAS WITHIN THE REPRODUCTION WERE INSPIRED BY SilentWhisp AND AS SUCH SOME CREDIT DOES GO TO HER. PLEASE READ HER THEORY ON GHOST PREGNANCY FOUND HERE Unfortunately SilentWhisp has currently left dA. She does have an FFN account which I do believe holds her Ghost Pregnancy Theories as well. Linkage to that account I lack at this very moment, but I will remedy that in time.
