AO3 sent me an invite, I have a new account there, Maldoror_Chant, and no idea what I'm doing! Once I figure out the UI, I should be up and running, and catching up with Outlands there. I will also be posting every other long fic I have lying around, and some of the better short ones, from GW, Naturo and One Piece. See you there! Buh-bye, LJ!

Edit: Figured out the interface. Here we gooooo!

Here we go

I spent a long boring 8 hour drive (long story) examining both Dreamwidth and AO3. They both look great. DW seems to make the journaling aspect of posting real easy, and is familiar after years of LJ; AO3 seems to rock the story structure and fic archive aspects. So for now, I've decided to sign up for both :) I'll update both equally (it's what copy-paste was made for) and if it gets too onerous over time, by then I'll probably know which one I prefer.

My brand new DW handle is Maldoror_Chant. I put myself in for an AO3 invite, which I should get in a week, which will give me time to gather up my courage to post the monster fics I should probably back up onto there...Outlands of course, but I'd also love to have all my larger fics in a handy place. So if the UI isn't a nightmare, I'm hoping to post DR/Kindred, Freeport naturally, Alienation, and who knows, maybe even The Arrangement. Though the latter will require a judgment call. Will I post it "as is", warts and all? Or should I take a sander to the roughest edges? My life needed more hard decisions (yay).

Also, I make not the smallest atom of a promise here, but I recently re-read Source of All Things, and damn it was more fun (and crazier) than I remembered. Then I dug up my notes file on it. First, I was glad to discover I still had a notes file, 3 computers and one disk melt-down later (though I did lose a couple of draft chapters, damn it). What really surprised me is that I still had a fairly good memory of many of the plot elements. How can I forget my mother's birthday every sodding year, but can remember how Heero ends up in a fic I wrote over 13 years ago? It is truly a mystery. Or the sign that I am a terrible daughter.

Well, I'll get Outlands out the door first, but then after that, if the writing bug has well and truly bitten me once more...who knows? I just hope my free time doesn't evaporate again.

Meh, who needs sleep...

Well damn, LJ...just...damn...

*catches up on LJ news*

Next step: Mastering LJ cuts again

Next step:
1- backing up as much as my LJ stuff as I can
2- write as steamy a pile of gay PWP as I can still come up with in honor of our new Russian overlords
3- figure out where to migrate Outlands to...

Welp, this may come as a shock...

...assuming anyone is still following this LJ.

Many long years has this journal been gathering dust, but I still get the occasional - and very much appreciated - note regarding my fics, so somebody out there may be interested in seeing me pop up again after a ridiculous amount of silence.

Doing great, so's the kid - no longer a spawnlet, now a very tall sprout full of growing independence. Which suddenly leaves me time for myself again, after a number of years of having no time at all. I recently picked up Outlands again, and gave it a poke. If nothing else, I have several chapters written or half written that I could finish up and post in a week or two. I hesitated though. I'm ludicrously rusty at writing, I still don't have all that much time, can I put in the amount of thought and research needed, can I make a commitment to quality and to-

Oh wait. This is the story of a gay salaryman who finds himself shot off into alternate ancient Assyria to fight trash-bots and Egyptians priests. There AIN'T that much thought, research or quality. It was started in a rush of fun, it can finish (hopefully!) that way too.

So expect an update soon, at least that fully written chapter of the next arc. Drop me a line if you're still following. Though I'll post anyway :D It's handy for me to have all my stuff online when I want to check some weird detail my mind suddenly hangs up on in the middle of the night.

Next step: Mastering LJ cuts again.
