Hi everyone. Here’s an important announcement for readers of my fic, ’Quietus’.
After much careful consideration, I have decided to remove all smut scenes written up until now from the Quietus chapters on FF.net. All future scenes will also not be posted on there.
The reason for this is that scenes of that nature, strictly speaking, are NOT allowed on FF.net I know a lot of people have been posting them anyway, but to be honest, I am not willing to risk my story being deleted or my account suspended. Not with how many followers/reviews/favourites/alerts the story and I have gathered over the years.
It just isn’t worth the risk, considering that my story has become so well known and all it takes is one
hater person to report it for it to go on record.
So to cover my back, all scenes of this nature will no longer feature on the website. I have also gone back and edited the sensitive material in Chapter 34, where Sakura saves the nymph from the satyrs.
I absolutely do not want to be caught out. For this reason, ‘Consume’ is also going to be removed shortly and any updates for it will be posted exclusively here from now on, only.
BUT DO NOT DESPAIR. I have devised the following way to ensure that you can still access these scenes, if you wish to do so.
You will find this note at the start of chapters which contain scenes of this nature, similar to what I had already:
Notice: This chapter contains smut scenes which are NOT readable on this website. The placement of the scenes are preceded by scene dividers indicated with triple X, as indicated below:
A similar divider will be placed at the end of the scene, and in between will be a number. Please use this number to find the corresponding scene in the SasuSaku Quietus group page on deviantArt, in the folder labelled ‘Love Scenes’. So if the divider is labelled Scene 1, you read scene one.
So to explain this clearly, you will find now, in place of the scene at the end of Chapter 47, for example, the following:
Please visit the deviantART group page if you wish to read the ending scene.
So you have to go to the SasuSaku-Quietus group on deviantART to access the smut scene labelled SCENE 1. Similarly, Scenes 2 and 3 have been indicated in Chapter 48 and have been posted to the folder already, for anyone who has yet to read them/wants to read again,
All current scenes and future ones will be posted in the folder labelled: LOVE SCENES.
You can find this folder towards the bottom of the gallery, next to the Chapter Previews one.
HERE IS THE LINK, which you might want to bookmark.
I haven’t put that link direct on my profile on FF.net, as a precaution.
You must be a member on deviantART and login to access these scenes, as they are flagged as Mature Content.
Please consider joining the Quietus Group to receive immediate alerts for when these scenes are posted,
I am really sorry that I have had to do this. It’s actually a real pain for me to have to post in two separate places, and I also realise it is a pain for you all to have to open up another website/login/create an account just to read it (I feel this interrupts the flow of reading, in a way), but as I already stated, I absolutely don’t want to take any more chances. I hope you can all understand and respect that the action I have chosen to take is in the best interests of this story, to ensure that it stays up and available for you all to read. I’m willing to go through a little extra inconvenience if it means securing peace of mind for me and for my lovely readers. This was really bothering me lately, so I finally decided to do something about it,
I will not be posting the scenes on tumblr, for future reference, because I want them to be organised clearly and accessible in one place, without people having to look through tags to find them. I don’t want to link directly to smut on FF.net, either. DeviantArt and the group seems to be the most appropriate place to put them.
I will consider posting a copy of the full, uncensored chapters on here, too, in future, but the formatting is a bit of a nightmare when I paste chapter content here.
If you have any questions or aren’t sure of anything, please feel free to contact me.
Thanks in advance for being so understanding, and Merry Christmas again to all of you celebrating tomorrow.
