Moving Moving Moving...

So, we bought a new house, and we officially moved in about a week ago. I am still living amongst boxes while I juggled necessity: should I paint that bookcase now? Or hope I have the initiative to do it later? What about my dress? Vanity? I need more bookshelves! Why do I have so many freaking books!??? OMG I'M DROWNING IN BOXES!

The husband and teenager are ... er ... helping. Mostly by staying out of the way, which I suppose is somewhat helpful.

The cats are helping by climbing all over the boxes and furniture like they are mountains and must be conquered just because they are THERE. This meant that this morning my youngest cat woke me up from my morning shamble around the kitchen by knocking a box of Christmas ornaments off of a high spot where they shouldn't have been in the first place. I'm kind of scared to open the box since it's the box of things that I've had since I was a baby and many of those ornaments are one of a kind and irreplaceable.

Maybe I'll just wait until the kitty has gone and hid somewhere for a while.

Finally, in fandom related news: I'm lucky, I suppose, that all of my long Buffy fic is already archived in multiple locations and I have some fairly solid backup copies on my hard drive. Not so lucky when it comes to my Pirates and Labyrinth fics. So I'm archiving everything I have over at FF.net, including reviews. Just in case.

I pretty much refuse to edit what I've posted there for mature content. It's silly and pointless and when I put smut in a story it's usually for a purpose. If they want to yank my fics, fine. If they want to ban me, fine. I'll just post them somewhere else.

Maybe I'll even clean them up and post them somewhere else. Some of those old fics have some typos, and could use a little overhauling.

Crap, now I'm back in the moving boxes situation: Do I edit and repost them to my LJ? Do I just repost them and hope someday I feel like editing...?

I don't do much with ff.net; are they yanking all the adult stuff off the site? Is that the problem?

I really like AO3. It's easier to read and allows for downloading so you can slap it on your Kindle, a real boon for the longer fics!

yikes, they're yanking stuff at FF.net? When did this start?

I moved to AO3 last fall, and am content with it. I'd hate to have all my stuff at the Pit go down the drain, though. I've almost finished moving everything to AO3 - but how does one archive reviews??

Congratulations on the move, BTW. Hope all is well with you!

You go here: http://storymaster.the-code-monkey.com/story-master-application/

click on the Fanfiction.net option, and then you use the tools to request your story/reviews/whatever in whichever format you prefer.


And I'm not sure when it started. End of last month as best I can tell. They've clearly updated the site somewhat and it looks like maybe they're serious this time around about cracking down on content.

I don't know what to say about the to-edit/not-to-edit question, but AO3 is unquestionably where all the fic is getting posted and read these days. I for one would love to be able to read your stuff there. :)
