This site will be celebrating its 10 year anniversary later this year. To celebrate, I thought now would be a great time to add a few new layouts!
Previews of the new layouts:
A fullscreen layout that uses a light background color.
A two-column layout with fiction text on a light background. This layout looks best on larger resolutions and probably is not suitable for mobile devices.
Light text on a dark background. The layout is responsive so it should work on smaller, mobile devices!
Similar to Enchanted, but with more contrasting colors. Also, like Enchanted, this is a mobile-friendly layout.
Dark text on a light background. This is the new default layout. It works best on desktops.

New Forms & Spam Prevention!
The form on our Contact page stopped working recently. I've replaced it with a new form that's been tested and is working properly.
I apologize to everyone who has tried to contact me recently who hasn't gotten a response. I've answerered every email in my mailbox, so if you haven't gotten a response, please use the new form and I will get back to you!
I also replaced the form on the Fic of the Month page that also recently stopped working. Please feel free to nominate your favorite fics for September!
If you have trouble with any other forms on this site, please let me know so that I can fix them! Also, if you have any problems with anything on this site please be sure to let me know.
I'm sure most of you have noticed that we've been getting bombarded with spam reviews and users recently.
Over the past few weeks, I've added several fixes that have already helped decrease spam reviews and challenges. Today, I added several other fixes which I hope will help prevent spam users from registering.
I know spam is frustrating for users and it has really gotten out-of-control in recent months, so I really hope these fixes can keep the site enjoyable for all (real) members!
If you do see spam, please report it via the Contact page or shoutbox so I can make sure it is deleted!

Yearly Update: Fundraising & Ideas
Our hosting payment is nearly due, so it's time for our yearly fundraising. Anyone who would like to help keep this site online can donate with the link below. All donations go straight into this site's hosting account!
We have a bill due at the end of the month! Anyone who can help pay it would be greatly appreciated!
As I'm writing this, we haven't had a new fanfiction posted or updated since December and we've only had 2 (non-spam) reviews since March!
I'd love to find a way to revive the site/fandom a little. I was thinking of restarting our improv challenge or coming up with a new way to do Fic of the Month that doesn't involve voting (since getting enough votes/nominations was difficult last time we tried).
Does anyone have any interest in these? Or does anyone have any other ideas they'd like to see for the site?
I'm open for suggestions & would love imput from everyone!

Yearly Donation Drive & Site News
We've had some incredibly generous users make donations so that this site stays online, unfortunatly our funding is starting to run out.
If you are able, please consider donating to help keep this site online. All donations go straight into my hosting account.
In other site news, thanks to Mariken for generously volunteering to help me combat spam on this site. If you recieve any spam reviews or spot any thing that you think might be spam, please let either me or Mariken know. We'll be happy to help!
Speaking of spam, I recently went through the entire Challenge section and cleaned out all spam posts. Using the section now requires that you be logged in to post but that should help the section stay tidy. We're welcoming any new challenges as well, so if you have an idea for a fic you'd like to see, please post it!
Finally, as the site gets older and people move on to other fandoms, we're getting less-and-less Fic of the Month nominations. Ideally, the plan is to post a FOTM poll ever other month but even that can be tough with how few nominations I'm getting. If you'd like to nominate, please do so here. I will post the poll on the first Sunday of any month when I have enough nominations. I accept nominations from anyone (frequent visitor or new to the site) & at all times of the month!
N O T I C E
If you have trouble getting the site to send you a new password, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you a temp one. The site can be unreliable with automated emails.

Fic of the Month
Welcome to another year with NukeFic.com! When I opened this site in December of 2007, I had no idea that it'd still be up & active this many years later.
I'm so happy with our little fic community here & I love that we're still going so long after our canon ended. Thanks to every single one of you who visit this site reguarly and especially to all those fic writers & readers who help keep this site active year-after-year!
An extra thank you goes out to all of our regular writers and readers who nominate and vote in our Fic of the Month poll. Fic of the Month is one of my favorite things about this site & I'm really glad to be restarting it with the new year.
To help keep things simplier and to make sure we continue to get enough nominations for the monthly poll, I'm relaxing our rules for nominations. The most notable rule change is the limit on the number of nominations per month. In the past, I only counted 10 nominations per person in a month. From now on, I'll leave it up for the readers to decide how many fics to nominate (within reason).
The updated Fic of the Month page is here! Also, feel free to go ahead and start sending in nominations for next month. All readers are encouraged to send nominations in at any time of the month (whether a poll is open or not).
Leave and comments, questions, or suggestions in the comments!

With the year winding down, our hosting bill is almost due. To ensure that this site stays online for another year, I need your help! To pay for a year's hosting, we need to raise at least $119.40 ($214.80 would pay for two years hosting). If you are able to help, please click the button below. Donations will go straight into this site's account.
Any help will be hugely appreciated!
Additionally, if you have an questions please feel free to contact me & I will update this post!
UPDATE: Thanks to everyone's who has donated so far. We've had three generous donators who've helped us nearly reach our goal already!
UPDATE #2: Thanks to two additional donors we met our minimum goal! The payment for 1 additional year hosting has been made! The domain will renew in one month and that will leave the site all paid up until December of 2014!
Thanks to all donors! I really appreciate every bit of help!

State of the SiteA few notes and notices about the site!
Things of Import
- Authors: Please do not use quotes in story or chapter titles. Readers who use the latest versions of Google Chrome will not be able to access your fiction if quotes are used in the titles!
- Due to abuse by a few members, readers can no longer rate fics without leaving a review.
- Please do not create multiple accounts in order to spam an author with negative reviews. I've turned action logging on so that I can now track the IP addresses of reviewing users. If I find any users to be harassing an author through multiple accounts, I will ban their IP from accessing the site!
- If you use IE and need to contact me, please email email@example.com directly. There is a problem between IE and the forms on this site that cause them to come through blank. Unfortunately, it's not a problem that I can seem to fix. Hopefully, a bugfix will come out eventually that will solve this. Until then, emailing me directly or posting in the Shoutbox is the most reliable way to get in touch with me!
In Need of Help
This site requires a lot of work and time to be run properly so I'm hoping to add a few new co-mods that would be willing to help make sure the site stays online and running as smoothly as possible!
Any potential co-mods would NOT have to know HTML or need any coding skills. Co-Mods would be given access to the admin panel and would be asked to help with a few things:
- Reviews: We've had some recent issues with users spamming/trolling ratings and reviews. I need a user or two who would be willing to keep a close eye on fanfiction reviews to make sure they remain polite. This needs to be someone who visits this site regularly and has enough free time to read over new reviews often!
- Story Submission: I've been a little slow about validating new fics recently. Anyone who'd be willing to help read over fics and approve them would be very appreciated!
- Fic of the Month: I've already had a few wonderful volunteers and I'm looking into a few ways to make the contest go more smoothly when it returns.
If you're interested in helping with any of these things please email me. Be sure to include your username and what you'd be willing to help with. I'll then contact you with more details and things you'd need to know. I'd love to have new co-mods appointed within two weeks so please contact me as soon as possible if you're willing!
Various Other Things
There is a new layout available that should make the site more readable on mobile devices and to users who are visually impaired. Choose 'vision' from the Layout Options (on the left) to use the layout! Many of the extra features on the site won't show up in that layout but it's great for those of you who want to read fic on their tablets or smartphones!
This site continues to cost a significant amount to run. I try to cover costs as much as I can but it can get a little overwhelming at times. If you have a few dollars to spare, please consider donating to the hosting of this site. Any donation is greatly appreciated!
One finale note: Thanks to all users who emailed me with suggestions and comments. I'm taking all suggestions into consideration and I will try to implement what I can as far as feature improvements.
I'm waiting until I've appointed co-mods before I make any decisions on suggested rule changes. Once co-mods are decided, we will discuss and possibly make a few changes to our Rules/TOS.
If anyone has any further comments or suggestion, please feel free to email me or comment here!

January UpdatesFirst, we have a new system for fic of the month! At the beginning of each month, I will tally all fanfiction nominations. I'll then put up a poll on the front page that includes the five most frequently nominated fictions.
Readers will then be able to vote for the fic that they would like to see win! Winners will be announced at the end of each month!
I'm hoping that this will help the contest be more fun and fair!
Pretty Boy by Blonde
Shut Your Eyes by Aspirwriter
This Boy by Luvbuddy26
Tornado by Chips

You can vote for your favorite on the right hand side of the front page (above the shoutbox). Good luck and congrats to all nominees!
The monthly improv has also been updated!
Snow, Hug, Fireworks, New
Write your fic containing all of the words and post it in this category! Please post all submissions by January 31, 2010! Multi-chaptered fics do not have to be complete by that date, but at least 1 chapter (that includes all four words) should be posted by then! I will post a new set of words in early February!

New Layout OptionsAs you've probably noticed, I've been hard at work today on a new layout. I'm still in the process of tweaking the design a little, so please be patient.
I hope to have everything settled (and a few new layout options up) soon!
If you have suggestions or requests, please feel free to let me know! And please do report any errors you spot or problems you run into so that I can fix them!

Changes and New FeaturesAs you've probably noticed, I've been working on adding a few new features to the site recently. I'm still hard at work, but I thought I'd point out some things that might be of interest to the writers and readers on this site!
- If you need someone to beta read your fic, you can find a list of all members who are willing here.
- Challenges! If you have an idea for a fic, post it here. If you write a fic in response to a challenge, be sure to link your fic to the challenge!
- Recommendations: Recommend a Luke/Noah fanfic that is not posted on this site and tell us why you love it!
I'll be adding to this thread as I continue working on the site!
posted by Tonya on August 15, 2010 05:42 pm
Other Pairings!We do NOT allow ANY fics that end with Luke or Noah with anyone besides each other. Luke/Reid (or any other Luke/Other or Noah/Other relationships) are allowed only if they are an obstacle that Luke/Noah will eventually overcome.
If your story does not end with Luke/Noah together, NukeFic.com isn't the proper place for it!
Fics that do not end up with Luke/Noah together will be removed from this site.
posted by Tonya on April 11, 2010 07:20 am
This site is for fanfiction about the relationship between Luke and Noah. We allow fics that include Luke/Other and Noah/Other, but only if the other relationship is an obstacle or roadblock that Nuke will eventually overcome. Any story that does not fit this guideline will be removed from the site. If you believe a story does not fit this rule, please contact me and I will look into it!
Also, please spell and grammar check your fanfiction before posting. I've gotten several complaints about fic with poor spelling lately!
Ratings & Reviews
Please do not spam the ratings feature on this site. Any user who is caught repeatedly tampering with a fanfiction's ratings (including their own) will have their account banned. Users are encouraged to rate and review all chapters of the stories they read, but please do not rate any chapter more than once or twice!
Also, please keep all reviews polite. Everyone is encouraged to leave feedback for authors (including constructive criticisms on what you don't like), but please remain civil. Flames will not be tolerated!
Character bashing is also not tolerated on this site. If you hate Luke or Noah, this site is probably not the best place for you.
Finally, as with posting fanfiction, please try to spell check your reviews!
posted by Tonya on March 28, 2010 10:18 am
Luke/Other and Noah/OtherBecause I know that many people prefer not to read stories that feature Luke or Noah with other people, I have added two new warnings labels.
If any of your fanfictions feature Luke or Noah with anyone besides each other, please edit your fic to include these warnings!
posted by Tonya on August 16, 2008 12:16 pm
Tell P&G that you love Nuke!Proctor & Gamble, the company that owns As the World Turns, has set up an automated poll about the Luke/Noah storyline. Please call 1-800-331-3774 to tell them that you do not want them to dump the storyline!
When you call, you will be given instructions to press 1 to continue in English. Then, press 2 for the As the World Turns poll. Finally, press 1 to tell them to continue the Luke/Noah storyline!
P&G has been getting a lot of pressure from some groups to do away with Luke/Noah. Call and help convince them that many more people love the couple!
posted by Tonya on April 28, 2008 01:49 pm
Finally, a Kiss!
Luke and Noah were finally shown sharing a third kiss today! Please contact the show and tell them how much you appreciate it! You can call the comment line at 718-780-7675 or write CBS here! Also, visit this thread and help us get some positive press as a follow up to the original "media blitz"!
Coverage of this kiss:
- Gay couple kisses on As the World Turns
- As The World Turns' Nuke Kiss
- Gay Teens Finally Kiss Again on 'As the World Turns'
