Arc: Site News

News about the site.

Clean Printing

Ink Burns is now print-ready. When a story is printed off through the reader’s browser, the header, sidebar and comments will not appear, and the story itself will be styled nicely for clean reading. This should also be true if you chose “print to pdf” in your browser’s print dialogue box.


As repeat visitors may notice, the site has gotten a new layout. Some things have been moved around, and I hope the new locations will be more intuitive and handy. In particular, the series menu was getting way too long and it is now collapsed into a dropdown format. To see the arcs, just select […]

Links and Roles

In accessibility news, Ink Burns now supports some basic WAI-ARIA roles. This should make the site more easily navigable by screen readers and no-mouse visitors. Over time, I hope to add to these. The site has also just switched over to ‘pretty permalinks’, which means that story and page titles will appear in the url […]

Quick Comment repaired

For a few months the Quick Comment function has been down or running incomplete, but it is now repaired. It should accept a name in the optional field and return all the proper confirmations. My apologies for how long that took!

All-in-one reading

I have finally done something I’ve wanted to add to the archive for a while. It is now possible to view an entire arc as a single document and save that all-in-one document as html or pdf for later reading! (The print-ready minimal styling will apply to the pdf since you’ll need to go through […]

Basic Advanced Search

After a good deal of back-end work which I hope was invisible to my visitors, there is now an Advanced Search page! All stories have been given genre tags that can be used to search for, for example, all Fluff stories or for Romance stories in Prince of Tennis. You can find the link to […]


The Quick Comment function has been revised. After considering the current trends of internet reading, I’ve turned it into a one-click button for sending Plaudits (as in applause). There is still an optional box for the name of the plaudits-sender, but the rest is very trimmed down. I hope this will make things easier and […]

Advanced Search

Advanced Search is now available on this archive! Follow the “Advanced Search” link in the sidebar and you will be able to search combinations of genres, fandoms, characters, and pairings. You may, for example, want all the stories that are in Drama and include either Tezuka Kunimitsu or Roy Mustang. Now you can get them, […]


Ebooks are here! All arcs and individual stories now have epub and mobi versions available. Look above the title and under the breadcrumbs, for the buttons to download the epub or mobi. All arcs have individual covers, for easy recognition on your bookshelf, while single stories have the story title on an archive-generic cover. If […]

New Style

Ink Burns has a new default style (old style is still available on the Change Theme page) to go with all the other little updates. This one is a bit more elaborate than the last, and will look its best in modern browsers, but should devolve gracefully in older ones. Navigation is variable, in this […]

Ebooks Down

Thanks to the assholes at hotlinking to my ebooks in a way that is not easily prevented, ebooks are currently password-protected. They will return to open access as soon as the aforementioned assholes are shut down. In the meantime, the log-in to download ebook formats (or view cover art) is “Guest” and “”.

Ebooks Are Back

The ebooks-tree assholes have gone down, so open access to my epubs and mobis is back! To celebrate, have a story I’ve been meaning to post for a while.
