Some people offered to make pictures, but that really didn't entice people last year. We barely scraped by this year, but you all came through at the very last where the bill was due.
From the records, there's been $35 extra that will spill over to 2017 hosting. This includes the $5 sent today.
Again, thanks for supporting the website. AND, I'm sorry to deliver the news late!

Unfortunately, for InuYasha-fanfiction.com, we may be facing our final year. We were REALLY lucky to skate by last year on donations because we had someone generously give to keep us open. We cannot expect that to happen again.
As for January 7, 2016, for the hosting this year, we've only collected $73 out of the $500 we need. If you'd like to keep IYFF open another year, please consider supporting us. You can either click the Paypal button on the front page, or go to http://inuyasha-fanfiction.com/viewpage.php?page=donate to donate.
Again... thank you for your support.

Please read about how you can help keep our website alive for another year at - http://inuyasha-fanfiction.com/viewpage.php?page=donate
In the mean time, have a very Happy Halloween. If you're cosplaying or if you have children dressing up at InuYasha characters, please send in your pics... perhaps we'll display them. :)
Also, it's almost that time to change up the featured posts... so be on the look out in the next month or two. :)
Thank you for being a part of our family. Love, from all us admins at IYFF!

I still come by and read, do upkeep and such.
As I said to Lydia (and she put it in the email blast to you all), I've not ignored commissions. I will get to them shortly after the holidays as this has been hard on my family. I'll still honor doing fanart commissions if your donation happens to be at least $50.
We're going to update the site header for 2015 and probably do some script upgrades.
I want to thank the other mods for helping on our main site as well as our groups on LiveJournal and DeviantArt.

We really appreciate the support over the last few years and hope to see this site remain for some time. It's amazing to read all of the fanfics, especially the variations in both Canon and Alternate universes.

This would be our 7th year open. We actually need some moderators... from people who are active that are active. We'e had some kerfuffles in the past with some mods that thought they were more important than other members of the community, and some that just wanted the status.
SO, we need 2 mods that can help moderate the site here at IYFF and a 3rd mod that would be interested in helping to handle the social media aspects of the club.
Although InuYasha, the manga and anime are over, there are tons of new fanfics each day... and it would be cool to get the word out that we are solely dedicated to InuYasha and as spam free as possible.
Outside of the moderator issue... I need help on changing up our recommended fanfics that are showcased on the site. Got any good ones to suggest? Let me know.
--Nile on 30 Dec 2013 10:31:01 PM 4 Comments
We definitely need to have an update here, and I am sure that would be welcome.
So let me know your thoughts. :D

Just wanted to take the time to welcome the newest members, and to say how great it is to see everyone writing and reading! I know school starts for many of you, so this will damper our activity, but keep on truckin'!
Read a little at a time (I know how hard that is, but it's better than not doing your homework!), or write when you're most comfortable (I, for one, can't write under pressure).
Soon, we should be having our 2nd Haiku contest. All of the mods have been very, very busy since we're all involved in multiple sites/groups on top of our personal lives, so we haven't done much besides our basic duties - I apoligize on our behalf. We'll be better behaved from now on.
And most of all, keep spreading the word - Inuyashafanfiction.com is the best place to read or submit Inuyasha fandom writing!
P.s.: As always, you can contact any of the mods for any questions you have, or click on "contact us" down on the bottom.

If you weren't aware, we're having a Haiku contest! It's posted at the site's IY-FF LiveJournal site - that means you have to be registered with LJ in order to vote. We really need to decide between a few InuKag haiku and some Drama/Tragedy/Horror haiku, so come on over and share your opinion!
--PitaBread on 24 Feb 2010 10:28:30 PM 4 Comments
Our contest is up!!! You can see the poems and poll here: http://community.livejournal.com/iy_fanfiction
If you're interested, the categories are:
*Best Inu/Kag romance
*Best SessKag romance (by popular demand)
*Best Other romance
*Best Citrus (not quite a lemon, eh? lol)
The voting will be until February 14th, at which point we'll have the winners from each category go up against each other for Best Overall. Everyone will get a BANNER, with the first place winners getting a special one. <3
Unfortunately, you MUST be a LJ member to vote, but you don't have to be a member of the group. Come by and take a look!

To report plagiarism, please do not just say someone stole someone's work. You must include links, quotes to places and certain scenarios. Remember, the IY fandom has been around for awhile and for those who have only been writing and reading in this fandom the last 5 years, there are so many stories that the plots are so similar, and yet none of the authors ever read each other fanfics.
We need proof that the author deliberately took exact plots and even word-for-word proof. Yeah...sounds like an essay, but plagiarism is a serious thing and needs to have serious proof. IYFF will have a specific email address - email@example.com

I often check the site's action logs to see what is going on and rather than point individuals out, this is like a general news. Doing this runs up the bandwidth.... on ANY website including this one, and others out there. Please be conscientious about this as a lot of these fan fiction sites are free to use.

Hello, fellow Inuyasha fanfic readers and writers!
Starting today, November first, I am personally overseeing a new type of contest! Are you ready? It's...
It may be one big contest, but, IF WE GET ENOUGH ENTRIES, I will put them up by category. If you're interested, the probable categories will be:
*Best Inu/Kag romance
*Best SessKag romance (by popular demand)
*Best Other romance
*Best Citrus (not quite a lemon, eh? lol)
If you'd like to see any particular category, let me know and if I think there's a market for it... I'll see what I can do.
DON'T FORGET!!! Since Haiku are so tiny, you'll have to let me know what category the poem is! The contest will be month-long, and each person can only enter 2 for each category. There will be award banners for all who participate, and separate ones for winners! There is a new category for them-you can find it under "Poetry>Haiku" Good luck! <3
TO ENTER: Simply write a Haiku, put it in the haiku category (under Poetry>Haiku) and make sure that in your story or chapter notes or somewhere, it says it's for the contest. And make sure you put in what category it's for.
P.s. (er, for those that need a refresher course...) Haiku have 3 stanza (lines), in which the first has five syllables, the second has seven syllables, and the last has five again. For instance:
Haiku are great fun, (5)
but they often don't make sense. (7)
Get crackin and HAVE FUN!!!
CONTEST HAS BEEN EXTENDED DUE TO THE HOLIDAYS UNTIL THE END OF JANUARY! PLEASE CONTINUE TO ENTER!!!!!

Hey, everyone! Just in case you hadn't heard, we have two sister sites!
The first is anime-fanfiction.com . It's for all other anime except Inuyasha, since we've pretty much got that covered here. ;] Nile, of course, created it, and she and Keva are modding it.
The second is for Avatar: The Last Airbender only. You can find it at www.avatar-fanfiction.com . We are desperate for more stories!!! Nile and I are the mods there, and we could use more writers, so if you like Avatar but haven't tried writing for it yet, give it a shot and submit to A-FF!

We are going to be getting some changes to the website's layout soon. Same color scheme. It is about time for that to start. With the layout changes, we will be taking away the top banner and putting 6 - 125x125 ads in the sidebar for people to eventually purchase. These will help keep the site going. As for the text ads, I will be reducing them to 3 at the bottom of stories in the content area and pulling them from the footer. The sidebar will be available throughout the entire site.
I will be sending out the awards for our 2008 IYFF Award overall winner shortly. It has been hectic as I have been scraping to get funds going.
We will be putting a DeviantArt fanart group together. We might seek a mod specifically for that group to help out.
Please remember if you would like to read or write drabbles, or at least get your pen warmed up, our Drabbles community is at - http://community.livejournal.com/iy_fanfiction
On Facebook? We are there too! Simply search for InuYasha Fanfiction and we are listed under that title. :)

In May the InuyashaQuotes community at LJ IYQ had their Grand Reopening. They offer prompts in quotes rather than using one word. Best of all there are no time limits to submitting your stories or word limits! You can do previous prompts whenever you want, even months later! Here is a look at the prompts they have for this month.
Monthly Theme: Grief
Even hundredfold grief is divisible by love.
- Jareb Teague
Given a choice between grief and nothing, I'd choose grief.
- William Faulkner
Nature's first green is gold,/Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower/But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf./So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day./Nothing Gold can stay.
- Robert Frost
The greatest griefs are those we cause ourselves.
- Sophocles, Oedipus Rex
You have to write a story based on these quotes. You don't have to have the exact quote in the story, but it has to be conveyed in some way. It's a really interesting and unique idea. If your looking for a real challenge check it out!
