Shoutbox
EllieRose101 (10/19 06:27pm): Guys, I am so happy! My fic 'After the End' got nominated for Best Drama, Best NC-17, Best Plot, Best Post-Series Fic, and Best Romance!
Braxen (10/19 08:49am): Apparently my little poll isn't open is open just for Livejournal users. :( I could have sworn that I made it open for everyone, and so are the settings for my Journal - comments allowed from everyone. If anyone tried to vote and couldn't, thankyou for trying! :)
Wonder and Ashes (10/19 04:33am): A big thanks to whoever nominated my stories at the SunnyD awards! :D
Braxen (10/19 02:54am): Thanks jhiz!
jhiz (10/18 09:51pm): I agree with you Braxen... I like your William best
Braxen (10/18 01:16pm): I have this obsession with trying to make Spike's face in the game The Sims 2. Doing a little poll at my journal. http://braxen.livejournal.com/....html
Braxen (10/18 01:13pm): I'm with jhiz there. *grins even wider*
juggler (10/18 12:00pm): I do like a good claim scene, it's often a major step in character or plot development.
juggler (10/18 11:58am): Oh, and by read I mean I often skip not always it depends on my mood, the story, and the writer.
juggler (10/18 11:53am): I usually read sex scenes (unless there are just lots and lots of them) but I enjoy them most when they are part of the character development, and have been part of a building relationship. I don't usually read smut just for smut. I like a good story.
jhiz (10/18 11:22am): I only skim them if they are becoming repetitive in the story themselves. Normally, I enjoy all parts of the tales I am reading (or else, well, I wouldn't be reading them *grin*)
All4Spike (10/18 08:23am): I frequently skip over sex scenes, unless they are claim scenes or are a major progression in a relationship. If it's just 'this chapter's obligatory shag', I don't hesitate to scroll on past.
nmcil (10/18 07:30am): Regarding the sex scenes - wondering for a long time now if the current readers and writers are ready to move on from so much sex in their works. So much of it feels "obligatory sex" - As a years long reader of Spuffy, I more than ever love a good story.
Legen (10/17 09:28pm): @puddinhead that was awesome
Legen (10/17 09:25pm): I love cracked. I have the app on my phone
Mia Vaan (10/17 05:46pm): If Cracked had been around when Buffy went to high school, she and Angel never would've made it to first base. :)
Mia Vaan (10/17 05:45pm): http://www.cracked.com/...rong/
And Buffy should learn number 6.

Mia Vaan (10/17 05:44pm): http://www.cracked.com/...anion
Joyce should have deployed number 2. ;)

Puppet (10/17 04:52pm): Puddinhead; Wow, never realized how often people questioned Spike's presence? Ha, totally made me laugh, poor Vamp. :)
the_bronze (10/17 03:22pm): This made my day! Puddinhead
Mia Vaan (10/17 12:21pm): One of my newest challenges has mysteriously moved itself to the top of my challenges list, where the older ones are. Not quite sure how that happened...
Puddinhead (10/17 12:12pm): It's Friday! I wonder what Spike is doing? https://www.youtube.com/...TYcSE
juggler (10/17 12:19am): I agree with pfeifferpack, it depends on my mood and the writer. I do enjoy well written smut when it flows from the plot and character development.
Legen (10/17 12:18am): ....other ppls life is like. Or this is what they want their lives to be like.
Legen (10/17 12:17am): I, too, will often skip smut. Especially if it's the fifth or sixth scene in as many chapters. But when I do read it, I feel as if it is an insight into the writers own sex life/ideas. I feel sex scenes answers one of three questions: this is what the writers s. life is like. This is what they think

Banners and Review Wordcounts

Many new stories are featuring banners, and they are wonderful. We love banners, and are in awe of the work and creativity it takes to make them. That said, we know they can make it difficult to inconspicuously sneak a peek at the most recent list while at work sometimes you just want things simple and clean. So, you now have the option to hide banners from the browse pages and story index. Banners are always shown by default. To change your settings, go to your preferences, uncheck the box for 'Display banners on browse pages and story index' and click submit. If you uncheck the box, the banners will be hidden, and in their place you'll see a message that says '** Click here to see this story's banner**'. If you want to view the banner, you can hover over that message to see a thumbnail of the image, or you can click the message to view the image full size. Remember that it sometimes takes a little push for your phone/computer...

Awards!

Okay, I know I just posted a news item, and I hate to post them too frequently. However, I felt these awesome new site awards, created by EffulgentEllie, deserved a post all their own. From now on, all our members of the month and members who make our yearly top 10 lists, will get a gorgeous award placed in a new section on their profile. Let's all take a moment to admire the awards that have already been added.
