Hey ho, just rising from the ashes to let (the very few) people on my fl who are still reading popslash know that I've gathered and archived all of my stories over at the fabulous AO3. You can find them here. I haven't had a chance yet to go through and fix up any formatting glitches, but that will happen eventually. If you happen to notice anything particularly obnoxious, please feel free to let me know. :)

Everything's there except the remix story I wrote in 2005 or thereabouts, which seems to have kamikazed itself into oblivion when my last laptop died. That's not such a bad thing. As I recall, it was pretty much a limp dishrag of a story anyway.

Hope you're all doing splendidly and managing to keep your toes out of whatever kerfuffles are popping up in your fandoms du jour. I'm currently in mourning over our recent federal election. Another four years of fascism with Harper, unfettered this time by a minority government. Truly scary times ahead.

HOLY CRAP. You're ALIVE!!! *tackle-squish* How ARE you? How's life? What's new in your fannish corner of the world?

Also, so sorry about your newly elected government. :(

Suggestion: on your LJ profile, you still list a (long-defunct) Geocities URL as your website. May I suggest you use the link to your AO3 stories, instead? It's very helpful when people do that.

I've been especially grateful to all writes who moved their stuff to AO3, as it's been of tremendous use to my shiny Kindle that I got as a birthday present from the parentals. I'm sure they didn't mean it as entryway into den of fanfictiony iniquity, but what they don't know, etc.

As AO3 allows downloads of fanfic in various e-book formats, it greatly cuts down on the effort of copying, pasting, and formatting posted fic into e-book device-friendly format. So, yay for the transfer!

It's you!!! Great gorping squishes right back atcha! So good to see you (well, your sparkly JC icon, anyway). I'm fine, if you don't count work. Or the political landscape. Currently, there is zippo new on the fannish front; I'm a fangirl without a fandom. The woe is not to be borne.

How about you? How's life for you, real and fannish? Any fabulously cool fandoms you'd like to pimp me into?

Thank you for the sympathy re: the election. It is definitely black armband time in Canada.

*snicker* Thanks for the suggestion to get rid of the geocities dead-end link. I'm soooo swift sometimes...

Yes, the AO3 is fantastic, isn't it? Makes it all so very portable! I don't have a Kindle, but I do have an iPad, which is definitely of the yay when it comes to being able to lug a bazillion books around (among many other fine distractions).

Off I go to update my profile...

God, woman, that's just indecent! :D

I'm fine, if you don't count work. Or the political landscape.

Same here, curiously enough. Except that I am a girl with a fandom. Well, still with SPN and its RPS (such a sucker for a pretty face) and! A new one - and a sparkly one at that. Literally.

Adam Lambert. Well, I'm not IN fandom; I just read the fic. And curiously, such a high level of denial requires almost no effort on my part. ;) But it's just... he's so pretty. And witty - sometimes. And gay. VERY gay. And a nice Jewish boy - I can never resist those.

As for AO3, with your iPad it's not really all that necessary to you, as you can read fic in the browser, but for the Kindle, the damn thing only supports a few formats, and I don't much like reading PDFs on it because their font is too tiny and causes eyestrain. But with AO3, I can just download a .mobi file directly onto my Kindle and I'm ready to go in 3 mouse clicks (or less).

That's me, indecent to the very core.

Adam Lambert, right. When I started poking around lj before posting, I did notice his beamish wee face popping up here and there. Definitely sparkly. I've also noticed Hawaii Five-0 putting in a prominent appearance. Not a huge fan of the show, but what the hey. Things change, right?

I don't have 3G on my iPad, so I'd need to download stories if I were going to read them outside a free wi-fi zone. I haven't so far, but it's on the list of possibilities -- once I find that elusive fandom.

Good to see you too! AO3 is the awesomest of awesome things. So easy to use, the ability to bookmark, looks so pretty -- I'm kind of in love with it. Now I just need a fandom to play in. :)

Much love for your sparkly icon. It brings back such lovely memories. Let me respond with the pineapple head of beauty.
