LOTRFF Arghhhhhhh

 So, one of the websites that I use regularly to post my fanfiction has been sold. 

This has created a rising wave of protest among many of my friends who are much better and more prolific authors than I am.  I only have 50 stories on the website, and most of them are short.  I have decided, after reading many points of view, that I will have to go along and pull my stories from the website.  So I will copy my reviews to my private files and begin deleting my stories as quickly as possible.  I have six stories nominated for the MEFA Awards that link to that website, so I will move those links to other places that I also post.  This is all I needed - to add more work to a workload that is already overly full.  But I feel that I must do this. 

I am completely through with my main Big Bang illustration.  I showed it to several friends yesterday because I had it at the shop.  People seem to really like it.  I'll get that photographed within the next week, and as soon as the administrators have responded to my query about how to submit it, I'll get that sent off.  I am still working on pencil work for the chapter heads, but those are a bonus, not a requirement. 

Have a good last day of June.  We'll be under a Heat Advisory today with temps expected to be around 100 F (almost 38 C for my Celsius friends).  I don't have air conditioning at my house, so we'll have the fan on tonight.  It will be one day when I go to work happily because I do have air conditioning there, so I'll be comfortable for the day.

If you've got reviews you want to keep, make certain to copy those - about the only thing I lost when I was booted off of SoA was reviews, and I really wish I'd kept some of those (the fic was all backed up elsewhere).

And if you're looking for another archive at which to post, MPTT's fairly friendly (, although I don't get nearly the number of reads/reviews there that I've gotten in some other locations.
I got more than half dealt with this morning and will continue my migration tonight. I'm thinking about MPTT as well as Tolkien Fan Fiction for my secondary posting locations. I think I'll have Marta point to my LJ story archive for simplicity's sake for MEFA though and I'll delete those six stories last off LOTRFF. It's such a shame, I usually get very good readership at LOTRFF, but I can't condone the attitude of the new owner.
