Audience Rating System


  • All fics on this site have been tagged with a rating of either G, PG, PG-13, R, or NC-17. This corresponds to the system that we have for rating movies in the USA.
  • A G-rated fic is suitable for all audiences.
  • An R-rated fic implies that you should proceed with caution if you are under 17 years of age.
  • An NC-17 rating implies that if you are under the age of 17, you may not read the fic. Reasons for high ratings include language, violence, gore, sexuality, and intense themes.
  • Unfortunately, we have no way to monitor the ages of the people who frequent this site, and thus are forced to leave readers to their own recognizance.
  • The staff of The Construct disclaims all responsibility for people under the age of 17 who choose to read R and NC-17 rated stories.
  • If you are age 17 or older, you may use the password “iamadult” to access protected R and NC-17 rated stories. By using this password, you claim to be age 17 or older, understand the audience rating cautions, and accept full responsibility for your choice and its consequences.

“I think you’re going to have to drive.” Neo tried to keep their spirits up. In return, Trinity hugged him tighter, her fists fiercely clenching his shirt.

“Isn’t he beautiful?” Suzie Song Masamune wept quietly yet happily as she cradled her tiny new son in her loving arms. She kissed him gently, nuzzled him nose to nose, then added in her funny baby voice, “You’re beautiful, aren’t you, little Yurei.”
