(MKR) H&L - All I Can Taste Is This Mome
As much as I dislike the idea, I really have come to the conclusion that ebony_silks has spun its last webs around LJ. It's finally time to declare an official:


...for an indeterminate period of time. possibly forever but there's still Dokuga so SK fans still thrive in one place! ^^;

Thank you all for supporting this comm for so long and I'm sorry I got you guys out of one hiatus only to go into another so soon...but participation is really low - both for writing challenges and for voting - and I don't think there's any point in poking you guys again and again to participate.

Thank you for three years we had together! Thank you for making 100+ themes possible - you guys are and will always be the best! ♥

I still can't believe that I managed to run such a successful contest for so long and I'm glad that the Sesshoumaru/Kagome torch continues to burn! It's all that matter anyway! xDD

*shoos you off to dokuga_contest *


Buh-bye! See ya all around the netz. OH! And...

You can defriend but you shall forever remain in the collective memory of this comm! THERE IS NO ESCAPE...NONE I SAY! xDDD

Two very awesome people came through already! Can we get more stories till next week ladies?

Remember that your theme is Holidays - very simple theme that doesn't necessarily shackle you to Winter...there is still summer and whatever else holiday you can think of! ♥

P.S: Also - advertise us if you can?

Just this Once…?

Since this is Week 100 and we've just hit an important marker in our community, I will ask you all to vote for ALL your favorite entries, in the order of your preference. Everyone will be a winner this one time, because it's Week 100. xDD

You have until Wednesday, December 17th to place your votes! Please try to? For the sake of people's work. ^^;


Now! Your themes for Week 101 will be:


Word Theme:

Fun Theme:
December 14 - December 25
Sticks and stones will break my bones but words will never harm me

You have to choose from one or another but both have to be drabbles!

I hope that we have at least three entries once more...to be able to proceed with voting. Just remember that you can always ask for an extension if you feel you need one.

We're a laid back community! ♥


3rd subject of this post - we now have a new layout and a new profile layout! I can't quite figure how to add the former header to this current lj layout, but never fear! I shall keep on trying.

But on the whole, I think that you guys will love both our new additions! ♥

12th-Dec-2009 10:38 pm - Week 100 - Free Theme
discussion, opposites, contemplative

Title: “Just this Once…?”
THEME: “A Memorable Event” --- as inspired by our passing of “Week 100”
Author: Sango Shadowphoenix
Word count: 2700. Clearly, a one-shot.
Rated ‘M’ for “Mature.” Or “Many Explicit Sexual Situations.” Your Pick.
Genre: Lemon. Probably a PWP…?
Universe: Alternate
Disclaimer: InuYasha and its characters belong to Takahashi-sensei.

Summary: Kagome’s in a pinch. A pinch she just might as well enjoy.

Dedication: I dedicate my first lemon to ebony_silks, because it was the first writing community I joined, has awesome readers and writers and lurkers, and because it does wonders to get my lazy ass back into gear for writing. So, I humbly give to you, ebony_silks, my first lemon. *curtsy* Please be kind and give me pointers~ Hahaha.
No. Seriously. Tear it apart, and don’t be afraid to spit it back at me, despite that it is “a lemon.” (Actually, this goes for all my works!)

Warnings: Explicit Sexual Content. Proceed if over 18. If not over 18 --- just don’t let anyone catch you. And if you get caught, be smart and take responsibility for your actions. (For example, blame yourself for proceeding despite the warnings, not the person who’s posting on the internet.) *peace sign*

One more A/N: I apologize profusely for the tardiness. And. Despite my best efforts…. I think this might fall into the category of a PWP. *frown* That’s also a first.

With, of course; not on.

Well! I'm not sure if I'm still within the deadline, since I'm in a different time zone and Sesshoumaru seemed quite unwilling to let me write about his flaws. This is supposedly part of a bigger project on Sesshoumaru's psychological issues that I'll most likely never finish. Okbai.

Summary: Kagome has faith in Sesshoumaru’s character. Even when Sesshoumaru has good reason not to have faith in himself. 
Warnings: I have realised that I have the tendency to be very vague about the plots that I write for ebony_silks (though they are minimal, considering they’re non-related drabbles and one-shots). o.O But I’m hoping “borderline writing-without-plot” is not going to start showing up in my Warnings section. I mean, I eventually reveal what I’m writing about, yes? I think I do. *nervous*    …does this count as a warning or an A/N…? (lol)
