So that Hameln area of syosetu is where the fan fiction of existing properties gets posted? I never noticed it before.

Because I ran across a Sword Art Online and Mamahaha NTR stories from there from a search page.

Yeah it's pretty hard to find new stories that don't fit a template nowadays. That's why I give credit to Armored Maiden Armed Maiden's author for trying to do something different.

Good news, everybody! I discovered that The Decline and Fall of the Goldana Empire is pretty darn good, so now we have something to read again. Apparently it was too spicy for Narou, so the author moved it over to Nocturne, but it's extremely low on actual sex scenes, even if people discuss the matter quite a bit.

Mostly it's an isekai about an overpowered guy who goes to magical medical school while trying to pick up hot vampire chicks and avoid getting married off to muscular noble (wo)men. The first few chapters are pretty rough, with way too many explanations from God(?), but then it quickly picks up and becomes surprisingly interesting and fun.
Highly recommended, in these otherwise very meagre web novel times.

Found another new title that's pretty good, 昭和38年. The author's got a bunch of works prior, both on Narou and Nocturne, with some being published as well.

Plot's about a 43-year-old hack writer who suddenly finds himself time warped to 1963 Tokyo, and struggles through a quickly changing society to get back to a decent lifestyle. This kind of time leap story isn't exactly original, but what makes it stand out for me is the time period chosen.

Usually it's either "medieval fantasy" where the protagonist can go hogwild with all his modern knowledge, or "my childhood", where the MC is already intimately familiar with the setting, since they've lived it once before. Here we've got "grampa's era", which is more vague, and much of his knowledge has already been implemented by others.

Instead we get interesting details about how Japan changed after the war, like needing to buy a padlock to keep thieves out of your apartment, or just how expensive but handy a refrigerator was back then. Keeps it unusually fresh, at least for me.

It also helps that the first character the protagonist starts hanging out with is a young man, so it stops the story from becoming yet another midlife crisis fantasy about dragging around a harem. To some degree, anyway.

I never noticed it til now. So the most blatant, main themed blood incest web novels got deleted from nocturne and moved to Hameln eh? (The ones they caught anyway)

Makes sense now why some of those web novels got deleted some months back.

Vtuber web novels are so popular right now. I've never gotten into any of those stories personally.

They did? Can't say I noticed. Wasn't aware there was any content that was banned on nocturne.

Yeah, it's weird. When they got deleted at nocturne it said the website deleted for not meeting their standards or whatever and then the same stories are on Hameln which is also a syosetu site. So it feels like the web novels they consider to be more problematic are put over there. The fan fiction of existing properties are over there too.

I haven't found any fan fiction at Hamelin to be that great though. The two fan fiction I seen there were only H between the characters. Not anything really clever or noteworthy. I haven't even read any of that Mamahaha NTR fan fiction novel yet.

^ I always thought Japan was much more lenient to incest in fiction though. Like half of mainstream LNs (and anime) have one of the heroines being a step-sister or real sisters that are kept on the border of becoming a heroine. Even Mahouka has a real brother-sister pretty much close to incest (haven't read the newest novels, so not sure whether they are or aren't siblings in the end). It feels strange that nocturne went on a crusade against incest while things like Lolicon Yuusha are OK.

Wasn't Japan becoming a bit more picky with the blood incest with the Olympics coming up or something like that? It wasn't like a huge change or anything. It was just a little here and there. They were feeling a little more pressure on the issue.

Wasn't there that one H-anime not too long ago that changed it so that the woman was his stepsister instead of his blood sister that she was in the manga? I think she was married too. I forgot the name of the anime.

Did they make an announcement or post the changes to there rules somewhere? Had a quick look but couldn't see anything.

No, it's just me guessing so I could be wrong.

Maybe I'm wrong and it's just something else. It's weird how Nocturne said "This novel has been deleted by management because it contains content that violates the terms of use", but they are okay with it being on Hamelin.

Or maybe they just haven't noticed? Maybe I should read it before it disappears again?

Ore no Imouto ga Saikou moved over to Hameln too.

^ Reading the first chapter of that I just now remembered how great some JP R18 novels are. Not that it would be especially well-written H scenes, but I laughed the most in a long while. I actually might continue reading this for a few more chapters.

I often read web novels from the Real Life Romance category. I noticed there are two types of stories that are the most likely to stop updating and be deleted:

1. Stories that have a female childhood friend that doesn't want to confess to the dense male lead. The story goes on for awhile showing how close they are and how they have a good relationship. Then a new girl shows up (probably a childhood friend transfer student). The new girl has equivalent or somewhat superior relations with the male lead. The first childhood friend becomes frustrated and depressed.

2. Misunderstanding and downhill relationship stories. Something causes the girl and guy's relationship to go bad so the male lead eventually ends up going out officially with another girl. The smaller the reason for the falling out the more likely the story is to be deleted.

When I run across these stories I wonder how long it will last before the web novel gets deleted. It feels like the author probably got a lot of angry and critical comments so they just bail out right away.

Personally I find it more interesting when the reason for the break up was a lesser issue except when they drag it out too long. The great majority break up stories go overboard and make the female character evil or brain dead. They feel like cardboard characters to punch and hate (similar to most zamaa characters)

One web novel died and was later deleted after it was revealed that the female lead misunderstood what the male lead meant when he indirectly confessed to her early in the story. She thought he was asking her if they could go to her house that day. She said that it wasn't possible. Some readers must have really gotten angry over that. The whole story was based off such a tiny misunderstanding. They were going to end up together regardless, but it looks like backlash ended the story about ten chapters from completion. I recommend that anyone writing these kinds of stories to stop accepting feedback so you don't get hate mail so the stories can at least be written further.

I loved this in Mamahaha no Tsurego (the premise). They didn't grow estranged because of some colossal problem, it was just a series of small miscommunications and unreleased frustration that just spiraled out into them breaking up despite still loving each other.

Though I usually don't have the patience to read novels without any fantasy elements (R18 relationship novels are an exception, as H logic can be considered a fantasy element in itself ). It's OK watching it as an anime, but when I am reading those stores tend to be just a bit too slow paced and boring.
