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.

Have you considered HASA? It's not my favorite site but it's decent. MPTT is also good but doesn't allow adult material either sexual or violence/gore so I can't post all my fic in one place there. HASA at least I can post everything, once I figure out what I'm doing with my old series and how to integrate what I want to save into the new one. GAH!!! NO time for writing let alone organizing!

Sending you huge hugs. I know this is hard. I have invested over four years into moderating on that site, often being the only moderator to actually DO anything. I poured myself into it for a couple of years until I figured out Adora really just didn't care. So this really doesn't surprise me, but it does anger me that she didn't even offer to pass it over to someone in fandom. I couldn't have paid for it, but I MIGHT Have been able to take over the hosting fees by getting word out since I'm actually ACTIVE in fandom. *fumes* Anyway, I'm so sorry this has happened and I feel your pain. There is talk at the aragorn angst group of a new site being created, but I don't know if it would allow slash or adult fic. If not, there's little point as there are enough archives out there that take Gen fic.

Can't wait to see your LOTR Big Bang art! Oh now I am wishing I had been able to keep participating!! Damn muse. Runs off with the cabana boy whenever I need her...

Sending lots and lots of HUGS
It is an unbelievable pain. Right now all of my stories are pretty gen, so I went ahead and posted them to MPTT. And of course they are also all on SWG. But I do need a new home that can accept anything and I'm hoping something will crop up that will be perfect. I spent more than five hours this afternoon getting 52 stories posted to MPTT so at least I have two public places for my stories.

Tal Valante at aragornangst yahoo group is in teh beginning stage of starting a new site that would allow everything LOTRFF did. By Fans, For Fans. I've been asked to moderate and help with setting it up. I gladly agreed. :) Will let you know more as I find out. Could be a good place for most of the active members of LOTRFF to shift to once its up
