9-7-13: Machine City Knights page is up and yes there are goodies on it! Yay~!
8-31-13: Five header edits and a new menu over there with one new live category (Escaflowne, with fic 'A Change of Fate' in it) and a few unclickable (but coming soon) links. Yay!
8-21-13: Five header edits and finally, 'Whistlestop' is up on the FFVII page. It's one of those Sephiroth/Cloud fics I've been asked about many times over the years and since it actually turned up again, it is posted. I see I need to clean up my box too.
8-20-13: One new Star Ocean 3 fic 'Reciprocal', five header edits giving drabbles proper titles. Links are staying the same, though.
8-19-13: One little Twin Signal drabble~ (Karma!) and a handful of header edits up. More soon.
5-12-13: April was just one of those months, y'know? Anyway, eleven header updates... which will be the new 'power project' because this should not be taking years ...and added the first interlude to the Transformers-movieverse fic 'Well After Two'.
3-31-13: Before March slips away, five new dishes in the Gundam SEED section - Not Quite a Wedding Dress (Kira/Cagalli), Okay (Gai/Elijah), Every Moment (Elijah & carbon!Veia), Zippers (Gai/Elijah), and Eye Contact (Rau/Athrun).
2-5-13: Happy Ten Year Anniversary (tomorrow)! \o/ Thank you for being some of the most loyal patrons and friends. Special thanks to Tofu for our 10 Year banner, and for banners for the Gundam SEED and Generator Gawl pages. SEED has been split off from the overall Gundam page, and if you're curious what 'Gundam Iscariot' is -- it's an original meta-Gundam series. Basically, it uses a lot of Gundam tropes and has mobile suits called 'Gundams', but the cast is (mostly, lol) original.
New for today are Offerings, a DM:A fic about Marac and Minewin (and the gods); Welcome Home in Gundam (SEED), an Athrun/Kira pwp; and Lost As, a Kingdom Hearts Riku/Sora ficlet.
Here's to another ten years!
1-8-13: Four more Kiddy Grade ficlets, 'Alchemy' in Xovers, and 'Changes' in the Ar tonelico section which is a fun, long Ayatane/Lyner/Shurelia fic. More header edits soon, but for now I'm finishing up a series of Gundam SEED ficlets, Living Without Worry, and a few other goodies for various folks. Never a dull moment!
1-5-13: Whew, and we're back! Two more Kiddy Grade ficlets up, and four header fixes. Really almost done with the C's.
1-2-13: Quick update of one header update. Still in the C's, but nearly done! Got another couple dozen Kiddy Grade stories coming very soon, along with piles of other goodies.
1-1-13: Happy New Year! Five new fics in the Kiddy Grade section, and fourteen header edits. Since we're coming up on the site's tenth anniversary, there'll be lotsa new stuff and tweaks in the upcoming weeks. Maybe I'll finally get certain sections properly sorted and whatnot.
10-28-12: Nine header edits, getting us well into the C's... Edited BBE 9 is up as well, which just leaves the far-more-cumbersome Best Moves edits to go in the B's...
10-21-12: Edited BBE7 & 8 are up, along with six header edits and Surrendering and And After in the Transformers section, and Pudding in the Kiddy Grade section.
[Snipped out old updates~]
3-4-12: 15 more header edits. A's are done, on to the B's! '(As Yet Untitled)' has finally been re-titled 'Club Night', but the file names are staying the same so links won't be broken. Same thing will happen once I hit all the random drabbles. Stuff is going to get titles! ^^;;
2-24-12: 15 more header edits finished -- hopefully will finish up the A's this weekend and also get some new stuff up. \o/
2-14-12: Happy VD, folks. ^_^;; Twenty more header edits done - yes these take kiiinda forever, but I'll be a lot happier with them done. Also moved a couple of fics to pages better suiting them, fixed a couple hilarious errors (who gets the 'report and error, get a fic' fics? me)... Yay?
2-5-12: Five more header edits done. We're going to start alternating between header edits, new goodies being posted, and general editing. ALSO! FUCK YEAH, TOMORROW IS OUR NINTH ANNIVERSARY! (that's a lot of lemonade served)
1-23-12: There is now a handy web-graphic at the bottom of the page that has contact info.
To A-on, if you see this, my linked e-mail has extra letters to prevent spam. The caps need to be removed before it'll work. It's just kalloway0018 (at) yahoo (dot) com. Also, I'm very flattered by the request - please feel free. ^_^.
12-31-11: Happy New Year! The plans for 2012 are as follows: Complete Uploading Backlogged Fics, Fic Header Edits and Standardization, Actual Fic Edits, and Layout Changes. A new layout has been in and out and in the works for years, and there was even a consideration of an eFiction install but I'm just not sold on it.
10-3-11: Four new stories from me + one fanart from Mateem! It's Brightest Blue Eyes fanart, so you can see it Right Here! And yeah, I know the BBE saga still has two chapters left and it's, ah... 2011... I'm working on it! Like I've mentioned, there's been some craziness IRL but it'll pass. For now please enjoy all the stuff that's being coded and uploaded. Most of it is pre-2009, right now, and a lot of request drabbles/ficlets, etc. Today has a new Soul Calibur drabble, two Code Geass pieces and an Ar tonelico bit. Enjoy!
2-27-11: New banner at the top~ Thanks, Cyd!
2-24-11: Here we go again! Since this is a website intended for Mature Audiences, most of the extraneous warnings will be slowly removed. Stories with sex will be marked with a . Some situations/kinks will be marked, but otherwise, please refer to headers for information on a story.
1-6-2011: State of the Lemon Address
Hi! Sorry it's been so long (there were updates during 2010, but never anything major enough to put on the front page) - here are the basics of what's going on:
• We had to change hosts again. Back around mid-year, our host at the time had something happen that basically ate Yaoiville.net and broke a ton of code all around the Yaoiville family. Which is why there's no counter anymore. Someday there will be a counter again, but I don't have a date for it.
• Along with the host change, which took several months of planning, research and actual moving (and then fixing a few things that broke during the move), there was some other drama in the lives of the people who run/host/maintain all of this. Not with each other, don't worry. But RL drama unfortunately always comes first.
• There is a HUGE backlog. There are upwards of 100 pieces which need to be formatted and coded. If they are for fandoms without pages, then those pages need to be created. Yes, it's all done with templates, but there's still a lot of hand-coding involved and it's all done in Notepad.
• The current plan is for a new layout. Maybe. If we can come up with something that isn't ugly. I'll be honest that I've been trying to come up with a new layout for the last couple of years and been a bit stuck. There are probably a few odd pages here and there that show various attempts...
• There has been a lot of conversation in various parts of fandom about headers, warnings, ratings, content, etc. I'm working on a universal header and way of marking content that isn't a mess.
• If you ever need to contact me, send a message to me. I am generally rather punctual with replies, as long as 'punctual' means 'normally no longer than a week'. Email address is at the bottom of this page.
Things That Need To Get Put Somewhere:
IDOL: Forget KH2, what if Jenova were the one pulling the strings?
Interlude: The first bit of smut from Villa Welc0me! That's the best thing I can say about it! Seph/Vin!
Essential: Take someone with silver hair. ANYONE. Let them fuck Cloud.
8-21-13: Totally cleaned up my box here with hopefully some better explanations for things and whatnot. We're still hard at work on things, don't worry. I don't really know what else to say.
2-5-13: Ten years we've been doing this? I suppose this is the year we should be catching up on everything...
About Unclickable Links:
Basically, it's easier to design in batches, so fandoms and whatnot will get added to the menu sometimes before their pages are finished or before I actually have anything to put in them (though something will definitely be in the works if they're popping up).
Also, for the sake of coding/time, multipart fics will often have a link to the next chapter even when the next chapter isn't posted. It's not an error, it's just a time-saver.
If you do find a truly bad link, send a message and we'll get right on it. We've gotten pretty thorough with our checking these days, though.
About Ratings and Symbols...
It can be difficult to assign a rating to words, but for the purposes of the site, we've tried. Ratings are listed within the headers, along with content notes. Prominent characters and pairings are all listed as well. There are also a few little symbols that may pop up while viewing. These are always on the fandom pages:
- this is a recent addition to the site
- this work contains sexual content
- this work contains elements (death, heavy violence, consent issues, etc.) that should be noted before reading
The latter two are rather new to the site and not all works that should have them have been marked. Please always read with discretion.
AA - All Ages. May have some romance/action/etc. but not nothing explicit.
C10 - Children 10+. May contain a bit of bad language, romantic situations, etc.
T - Teen. Either vulgar, violent, or moderately sexual. A fic may be rated this solely for using 'fuck' a lot, or for heavy make-outs/petting, or for blood everywhere. Or all three/similar.
M - Mature. Basically, it probably has glossed over sex or something fairly fucked-up but not super-explicit.
MA - Adult. Probably rated this for explicit sexual situations. Both this and M fics probably have the little 'lemon' indicators beside them.
