If you are looking for stories, the latest are linked in the right and left columns. Older canon stories can be found by clicking on the "Stories" button up at the top. There shouldn't be any reason for poking around elsewhere.

And if you ever have a doubt about whether something is open for public discussion or not - PM one of the authors rather than asking the question on the open forums.

I mean, follow JG's rules above about what is public consumption first. We don't want to drive the authors nuts with constant pointless PMs. But when in doubt, a private question about whether or not a matter is private is always preferable to a public question.

Feel free to harass me with the PM's, if you're not sure who to ask. It will give me something useful to do while the actual writers, well, write.

Briefly moved the thread to the suggestion box, then realized that most people were more likely to read the Quad section.

Thank you this thread and the guidelines. I like the stories and new characters to be surprises, either when they are revealed by the authors on the forums themselves or when the stories themselves come out each week. It is like a gift you just love to unwrap by reading and learning new things about this shared universe and the people in it. Having it spoiled by someone who isn't the author of the story in question or characters is very annoying. Like those who spoil movies you haven't seen, ruining the big reveals in them. Plus I would hate for us to lose any of the wonderful stories being created just because some individuals can't stop poking around and then posting it on the forum.

Thank You for story comments appreciated and help me know me they are being read and liked. :-) Note: My story comments can't nor are trying to replace reading the stories, simply my way of enjoying them and letting the authors know I enjoy them.

Sometimes the Muse is a fragile creature, that cannot deal with premature exposure as it needs time to ripen, sometimes it's a muscle-bound animal, with scars on it's knuckles, and encrusted blood under it's claws, that kicks down the doors of the brain, and screams "WRITE ME!"

No matter the form of the inspiration, the final arbitrator of when a piece of art is ready to be released, is the creator of that artwork. No-one else.

To look behind the curtain, and inspect the sausage factory, without invitation is RUDE, and, will possibly mean that the story you are looking for, will never be finished.

Yes, i want to read the next parts of several of the stories-in-progress here, but i have learned to be patient, so as not to spoil the surprises.

(I still have at least half an album's worth of tracks that i have been chewing over for nearly 30 years. They'll be done when they're done.)

Yeah as much as I like non specific hints as to what is in the works, it kind of kills the fun and point with people discussing titles of stories where the title isn't specifically published, for the foodie bookies thread, knowing what authors have something in the works is one thing but for instance some people were guessing "The Final Trump" before part 1 was published and that's a whole new character, that hasn't been in any fanfiction so we at least need a way to hide the titles from the non-authors, say a word scrambler and with what ifs have it so only the Canon authors and the ones that the what if author permits can see the real title. Or maybe just temp titles until ready for publication for everything, that way you could mislead us if we put stock in that title list with the broken links

Any Bad Ideas I have and microscene OC character stories are freely adoptable.
