22 February 2002

Completely revised the fic submission guidelines; if you're a current author, you may want to have a look before submitting new work. The screening staff's been angsty lately. Added/revised, and added some stuff to the warning index. Revised all the staff profiles. Added more links out of the site and put a 'new' tag next to them so you can see 'em.

We've also added warnings coming into the site, and going into each of the three main fanfiction archives. Navigating them is exactly the same as before (except for the entry level one which is self-explanatory; read it and you'll understand). Those flames in the gbook are so damn annoying when we've already said that NS is a yaoi/slash site. But do they get that? Noooo. ::trails off grumbling:: And they signed it multiple times. I just don't get that... Who sticks around a site they don't like? Also added a note about using the gbook for flames in the main index.

Added a glossary and fic submission guideline to the bookshelf, as well as four new fandoms (HP, LotR, DoA, and FF9). Hey, did I mention we were nice enough to explain the abbreviations in the glossary? Added a few new 'categories' to the Category Index in the Garden Card Catalogue. Minor changes to index formatting in the GCC, nothing to gawk at though. Repeat visitors probably won't notice...

Reformatted all the fics in each archive so they're all basically identical; only the colours are different (the GCC took almost a week *_*). That might change in the future, we'll see how we go. Also decided that when one of the fandoms in the SFA hits 50+ fics, they get their own sub-archive ^_^ All fic updates are now listed in the SFA.

You know what we need? A fic beginning with 'J' for the GCC. It's the only letter we don't have... And we hit 100 authors this update! ^-^

1 February 2002

The Bookshelf is finally up and running (kept putting off making the graphics) - and it's already giving us headaches; the programming and streamlining that is. It's hooked all our current fanfiction archives together, and houses all the new fics that we find around the place and like. Depending on how many submissions we get for it, it'll probably be a predominantly invitation-only section for the site. From now on, considering how long it's taken to do this update, fic update notes will be brief, 'cos we're lazy ^.^

In other updates, the only other new stuff are some nifty new links, and Koorime has a new contact email.

Updates for the Bookshelf: 1 new author and fic

  • A new Suikoden parody from new author Malachite: The Tale of the Sleeping Swordsman.

Updates for the Garden Card Catalogue: 2 new authors, and 5 new fics

  • From Atsuko and Rie, a new chapter in their 'Triad' series, Triad: The Man Who Sold The World, is up.
  • A new snippit of Glittergirl's Coming Out Party, has been added.
  • Also from Glittergirl, the revised version of chapter two of New Beginnings, is up.
  • Chapter 7 of Julie's Rivaling Cygnet, is up in the archive
  • We have a new Seifer/Rinoa, Squall/Zell epic fic from K.N.W: Saving An Angel.
  • From new author Koumori, her Seifer/Squall angst piece, Redemption, has been added.
  • From our other new author Seifer 2299, two new parody pieces. The first, The Pursuit of Seifer Almasy, a Squall/Zell/Seifer fic,
  • And the second is Secrets of Balamb Garden.
  • Last for today: chapters 7 and 8 of Sodoshiin's Seifer/Squall epic, Illusion, has been added.
18 January 2002

We need more fanfics. Everyone's back to school, ne?

Profiles of our Screening Staff are now up in the I.D. Go have a look-see and get introduced to our blessed moogles; Eilis and Devi :) Yeah, we should have done this upon first introductions but hey...

Millions of new quotes, majority of which we can thank our faithful submitter Freya. Check 'em out in the S.D.

Also added Selphie Tilmitt's Fan Spec File, now up in the Quad: "Fan Speculation" - submitted by SilverWing*, and we changed the fan spec colours last update, too... if anyone noticed. We also added some new links (in the last update), but forgot to mention 'em. Sorry, we were a bit distracted (this is what happens when you do an update during a 'staff' meeting >_<).

Updates for The Chronicles: (Two new authors today)

  • From our two new authors, Aaronica and Orfik, we have their collaboration epic In the Skin of a Lion
  • Mana has given us the fourth chapter to Only Half Ourselves
  • Chapters two and three of M.Mishima's Taint series is up.

Updates for the Garden Card Catalogue: Three new fics today

  • From CmdrLeonhart, a new OC/Squall short fic (with a bit of Seifer/Squall angst), A Brief Respite, has been added to the archive.
  • Also from CmdrLeonhart, a nice, sweet non-angsty Seifer/Squall fic, Birthdays and Homecomings.
  • Chapter seventeen of Jeremy Chapter's epic, The Pupu Saga has been added.
  • And the last new fic for the day: a new Seifer/Zell fic from Purple Penguin, The Darkness is up in the archive.
9 January 2002

The new year's brought some changes to Noire Sensus, most importantly, the addition of two new staff members to NS' arsenal. So say 'hello' to Devi Dee and Eilis Siani who'll be heading up all submissions to Noire Sensus as our new Screening Staff a.k.a the Gauntlet (cos K-chan has to give everybody a new title). Hiya, people ::waves:: Also, we hope to get the latest archive to Noire Sensus up soon: the Bookshelf, where we're housing the miscellanious fictions that catch our fancy and come in through submissions.

In other new stuff, some new fan specs. have been added to the Quad, and I finally remembered Rinoa's bloodtype. So yeah, I think that's it.

Updates for Apocrypha Scrolls:

  • Chapter twenty-one of J. Marie's Nakago/Tasuki (and a whole gaggle of other pairings) epic, Only Time - The Sacred Power has been added.
