Quick quest for AN length. If you put a 'previously in' at the beginning of a story, such as I did with They are Pack, and plan to do with We are Mates, does that have to meet the 300 word limit? Cause technically that's not an AN, but with Mates I plan to do a recap for both Alpha and Pack, since it's been a while, and am quite sure it goes over 300 words.

Anyways let me know please.


My own feeling is that a recap is part of the story, not an Author's Note. As such, the 300 word limit has no bearing. If I hear anything to the contrary, I will be sure to let you know, but I have a feeling that this will be fine.

To my way of thinking - and I believe this goes for a lot of people - an Author's Note is something that, while related to the story, is not actually a part of it. A recap would definitely be part of the story, since the story progresses from there.

Hope that helps!

that's fine. just a few things to keep in mind. youc an use any image that's a capture from the show, but if you're using somebody else's fanart in your work you need to a) ask for permission and b) attribute it to that artist


I avoid using fanart for any of my graphics (unless someone asked me to use one of their own fanarts, but that's it), but it's good to know that I can still use captures from the show.

...Would using images from the manga be allowed also?

I've always assumed that no one may edit a story aside from the author, but the above quote suggests the opposite.


As admins, we do have the ability to edit a story, but I'll state now that I won't do it. My practice is to give a warning to the author, give them one week to make the changes else I will delete the fic in question.

But yes, we are capable of doing it in the most technical of senses. It's just easier for me to go in and delete a story than to go in and edit a part of a chapter, authors notes, etc. That and I wouldn't like a third party editing my fics without my permission so I give the same respect to my fellow authors. The other admins will follow this practice too for the same reasons.

I'm sorry, that was an oversight on my part... it is not intended to suggest that stories are subject to edits. Hmmmm, now to think about how to reword that...

Okies... I shall make a list and keep track for the next rules update. Sound good?

So far we have:

Frilly shirts
Hot spring/hot tub

Any more?

Do past author's notes count?? I mean for stories we have posted some time ago?

Here's my take on this right now. I'm not going to ask you to edit every single author's notes you make. If we read and we see it, we might ask you to change it.

But all author's notes from now on should be 300 words or less. As long as I see this trend continuing, I'm happy. This rule has been around a long time, but if I went back to everybody who wrote old authors notes over 300 words i'd never get any new reading done

So, if you're asked about them, I suggest you edit or change, otherwise just make sure all new ANs are within the word limit


I will keep that in mind, though most of my notes are short and sweet so I don't think I have to worry too much... but it's good to know for those chapters I posted a while ago which may be over...

Thanks.

It's not like we're going to go through all 1,700 stories on the site and go after people. If something comes to our attention, we may ask the author to correct it. This Author's Note limitation was always part of the rules; I merely highlighted it to make sure that everyone was more fully aware of it.

Hopefully, this will set your mind at ease. You don't have to go through all your stories and check your notes. Just, please, keep an eye on them in the future?

~~Wiccan~~


Yes this helps and does put my mind at ease... thank you. And yes I will keep this in mind for the future.

Quick question! What happened to the frilly shirt clause in the rules? Are they still required in every fic or has that been changed as well?

Oh, doo doo. Did I miss something?? See? That's what happens when I am absent for long stretches of time and then try to do something on the site.

Mea culpa?

~~Wiccan~~

EDIT: I did ask Skye last night if there was anything I missed... maybe she missed it too?

So Something like this is unacceptable?:



I've edited it to conform to the 300 word minimum and am sending it to you in a PM... hopefully this will be acceptable to you!!

Hello again everyone! *ahem* I got this idea a while ago and only just got around to trping up the first chapter on account of many things. First, I got distracted because of family duties (as you all may not know...I'm 18 and my 39-year-old mother is pregnant. The estimated date of my baby sister's birth is around my birthday- September 23) plus I've been on the chat for a while getting to know people. If that doesn't make me busy enough I'm a beta for three different authors (I thought I needed the practice since this is my first time being a beta..plus it would give me experience with my writing. Though my readers might say otherwise I'm far from where I want to be with regards to my writing) Secondly, I was just plain lazy (I usually am...sorry xDD)

I'm predicting this story will take up most of my time aside from betaing. So those of you who read my other works will have to wait a little longer because I'm going to have to pour all my attention into this story. I really want to make this the best story I've ever written. With that being said I have Angelic Memories as my beta (karma for you girl! ^^) She was very helpful with helping me figure out the basic plot and I know she'll help me with the small details later on.

Some of the characters in here that you don't recognize are characters I came up with just for the story but the characters I almost always use are Sakura, Ichiro, and Akihiro (If you want to know what Akihiro looks like just look at the banner in my siggie)

Disclaimer: Anything Inuyasha related belongs to Rumiko Takahashi. The storyline and OC characters that will be introduced are my creations.

P.S Throughout the story I'll be using Japanese vocabulary and other things that may not be familar to most of you guys so I will graciously put foot notes and a glossary at the end of each chapter should I use unfamilar words just for your convienience. I hope that ya'll enjoy the story and don't forget to review and tell me what you think. I love the encouragement ^^

RULES REVISION - PLEASE READ! 8 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 191
Hello All!!

The Dokuga Rules have undergone a lengthy revision and are now posted. I know, (grumble, grumble) more reading? Still, please review them to make sure you understand all the additions and/or changes.

Some things have been added. Some things have been clarified. Some things stayed the same. Read over them, even if you've been here from the very start, PLEASE?

Don't hesitate to let me, or Miss_K or Priestess Skye, know what you think. If there are things that aren't clear, questions, problems... we WANT to know!

Now back to your regularly scheduled fun, games, and fan fiction!
