New warnings

Emotional abuse, sexual abuse, physical abuse, eating disorder, and panic attack have been added as warnings. Please review your stories and add these warnings as appropriate.

In addition, a new Snape flavor "Snape spanks" has been added.

New Warning Tag on P&S

The Corporal Punishment warning has now been split into two warnings:

"Physical Punishment Non-Spanking"
"Physical Punishment Spanking"

This is because some readers and writers have expressed concern over not understanding the definitions of the "Corporal Punishment" term and when it should be applied.

"Corporal Punishment" has been changed to "Physical Punishment Spanking" and a new warning "Physical Punishment Non-Spanking" has been added to the site.

Please check your stories to make sure the warnings are correct on each story. Change the warnings as necessary. :)

Thank you and chocolate frogs,

Site Back Up
The site was down briefly for about five hours today. We had an error log generated from the past 14 years that was too large. Our hosting company decided to suddenly panic and suspended our account until the file was deleted.

It's all fixed now and P&S will be online for many years (decades) to come.

Apologizes for any inconvienence or panic you might of had from seeing a suspended page.

Chocolate frogs,
