Man, so many people sent me so many nice PMs that I haven't been able to reply to individually.

Guys, you are awesome. Thank you, seriously. I can't tell you how much I needed it.

Anyway, there was a misconception, it seems. I am not leaving fandom. I'm not leaving LJ. I'm just... not writing right now. If the writing fu magically makes a reappearance, then I will simply start posting fic again. :)

Thank you again. You are all so, so lovely, and you deserve all the love forever. ♥

Hi all!

So, um, for a fanfic journal, it's been depressingly void of new fanfic in here, recently. I apologize. The short version of the story is, well, pretty much everything I've written since March is pure and utter shit, and I haven't been able to finish a single damned story.

I'm only marginally optimistic I'll be able to get my exchange fic done in time this week, and I'm probably going to end up dropping out of the couple of challenges I'm still in.

Woe is me, etc. *shrug*

Anyway, in case you were wondering what the hell happened, well, there it is. :)

Due to some recent anon comments to my fanfic that were downright rude/possibly someone trolling me and other commenters in the entry, I am now screening anon comments AND forcing anon commenters to verify that they're "real" with CAPTCHA.

This sucks, because I know a couple of people do comment here who don't have LJ accounts. You can blame the internet trolls for this extra level of hassle in your lives. I will NOT have people coming in and being rude to me and to my friends in my own space.

Even if you think my fanfiction is utter shit (which is your right), I will thank you to mind your manners. If you can't manage that, I will delete your comment with extreme prejudice. Fair warning.

First off, I updated the Fusion Master Post with a list of all the stories in chronological order as well as the order in which they were written, so now people can decide in which order they'd rather read them.

Onto the rest of the post!

Spurred by boredom, procrastination, and an ill-advised half-hour of lurking on the anon meme a day or so ago, I decided to re-vamp my Master List. It was getting overly long anyway, so it was due for an overhaul.

First off, I split it off into two posts. The first post is all SPN, all the time, and SPN RPF/S. The second post contains all my podfic and all the fic from my other fandoms, few as they are right now.

That being said, I'm not sure if I've got this down to a science yet. I still have my fic sorted primarily by length, and while it makes sense to me, I'm not sure it does for anyone else. Also, while my lists currently consist of the title, summary and posting date of the story, I wonder if many readers aren't scanning the list and wondering how the hell they can tell if a fic is gen or slash or het or whatever without clicking and reading the header of the story itself (although 90% of my SPN fic is gen, I just counted while I was working).

In short, who feels like helping me make a better, more user-friendly Master List? I have even made a handy poll for those of you who only want to click and not type. ;)

Okay, sent in my draft. It's currently at a little over 60k, and is complete, if in very bare-bones format. Doubtless when I go back in and fix it, the wordcount will go up. You know, when I add in things like adjectives and feelings. :P

Guh.

Going to bed.

The rest of this week is going to be devoted to other long-neglected fic commitments, and then I'm going RIGHT BACK to writing this monster.

Okay, so my draft is going to end up WAY shorter than my final version, but whatever. I have three days to finish. Here goes nothing:



53818 / 80000 words. 67% done!
