A Mammoth Undertaking...  
It's going to be a mammoth job. It's going to take ages. I think I'm going to have to do it, though. I'm going to make all my fics friends-only. *sighs*

I don't want to delete them. The whole point of getting a different blog was so that I can leave them on here, but I'm getting increasingly paranoid about readers from there finding their way over here. I really don't want nice people that know me in real life finding that I've written dirrrrrrrty stories. So it's going to have to be done. Some icon posts might need to be friends-only too.

It's not a disaster. CSI Miami is nowhere near as popular as it used to be. Axed, in fact. So there won't be many people interested in finding new fic. I could delete it all, but I really can't bring myself to do that. Yet. One day, maybe, but not yet.

I'll start at the top of the list in the sidebar and work down. If you'd like to be on my custom f-list for fic, please comment and I'll sort it out. Eventually. What a good thing the summer hols are here!

Re: I want to be on the list
I added you to my friends list so you'll still have access to the fics when you want. It's nice to know that the fics are still read!

Awww don't delete your fics, they are lovely and I have a number of them bookmarked to go back and read for fun :) The fandom may be dead at the moment but who knows what the future might bring? Plus you should be proud of your body of work, you write lovely fics :) Please do add me to that filter ^_^

I don't think I could bring myself to delete them totally. It would be like throwing a baby out! I have however made all my entries before December 2010 friends-only. That seemed to be the quickest way to solve the problem. Then I can go through them individually and change them to the custom friends list I'm making. Thanks for your lovely words! *hugs*

I would be sad to see your fics go, since I have a couple (if not all) of them bookmarked and occasionally go back to read them. That said, one of the solutions can be to open a new lj or even put them on an archive.

I personally recommend AO3 which is, unfortunately, closed to new members but if you know anyone with an invite ticket, they might be able to give you one. (I wish I have an extra D:) You can also sign up at the invitation queue.

Once you have an account, you can orphan your work so it won't be associated with your pseudonym or even abandon your pseudonym and make a new one. Your works will now be technically "abandoned" and "uneditable", but it will give others who want to read it the chance to go back to your fics.

Ultimately, it's your choice but I hope you won't pull down your fics. I really love them. <3

I'm adding you to my friends list so you can still access my fics. I'm afraid that I have no time to transfer everything to somewhere else right now. Some is available on CSI:Forensics - Out of the Lab, but I didn't get round to archiving it all there. Blame RL! So demanding!

Girl, you can't erase your stories

Do you know how many times I've come here and re-read them?
You are one of the most prolific, awesome, greatest Hardy Boys Writer out there. You just can't erase them D:

And, to be honest, I was planning on asking you permission to translate a couple of them. Guess I'll just have to hurry with my current ones and get it on with yours. Gimme a couple of weeks, girl, and you'll be hearing from me

And, yeah, I think I haven't commented on any of your stories. To be honest I just got on the fandom this year. And I swear that I read all your stuff in a week, tops. That is how awesome you are

So, please, pleeease, don't erase your stuff. They're like my teddy bear for whenever I need it

And I would like to be included in that filter of yours, if you don't mind

(PS: sorry if I made any mistakes, english is not my first language)

Wow, thank you so much! I couldn't erase them - I'm still way too attached to them! At one time, I was thinking about writing absolutely ALL the time. *sighs*

Please, go ahead and translate them if you like. I've added you to my friends list, so you should still have access to them. Any problems, just let me know.

(Nothing wrong with your English at all!)

Please add me to the filter. I still re-read old fics sometimes, and it would be a shame if you delete them altogether.

I can understand that you don't want people you know in real life to stumble upon our stories, but hopefully the custom filter will take care of that.
alligator138: Slash addictalligator138 on July 29th, 2012 01:27 pm (UTC)
I've made them all friends-only for the moment, then I'll go through and apply the custom filter. You're on the list already! Thanks for the comment - it's heart-warming to know that people still read what I wrote. *hugs*

Our fics are our babies! No way could I delete them! It took me a lot of determination to take the DVDs to the trading-in shop. All gone now - even Miami S3, 4, 5! My name is Ali and I am a Wolfe-aholic.

You are on my fic friends filter. First name I added.
Queen of Spades: karl_seriousmonkiainen on July 30th, 2012 10:41 am (UTC)
I'd like to added to the custom filter, I really enjoy reading your fics :)

Added you! Thanks for commenting!

Hi, can you include me on the fic-list please? I like re-reading your stories :) Thanks!!
alligator138: Ryan - Red hotalligator138 on July 31st, 2012 05:34 pm (UTC)
Added you! It's good to hear you like the fics!
Dancing_Jaxdancing_jax on July 31st, 2012 05:00 pm (UTC)
Would you mind putting me on the list? I don't think you've heard from me before but I do love your fics, I'm just a tad too shy to leave a comment :)
alligator138: Ryan - Beautifulalligator138 on July 31st, 2012 05:33 pm (UTC)
Adding you now! It's nice to hear from you now. Please feel free to leave opinions - all comments are welcome!

I made my fics all friends only. I've now added you to my friends list, so you should be able to access them again now. Let me know if you have any problems.

Please add me to the filter. When I was going through my HardyBoys phase I almost exclusively read your fics. That was a few years back and now I'd really like to re-read your fics. So friend me please? By the way do you happen to have a masterlist of all of your fics for navigation?
alligator138: Fanfictionalligator138 on November 18th, 2012 05:22 pm (UTC)
I will do that! I'm finding that a Hardy Boys phase is something that can creep up on you again without warning. It's lovely to know that people are still reading what I wrote!

Masterlist is in the sidebar under Tags. Each fic is tagged with its title.

Can I be in the filter? *O*
Can I still be in the filter? Or have I discovered this entry too late. >_<

I was one of your readers many years ago when I was in high school. Your (and some other people's) CSI Miami fics were not only great enjoyment to me but also a real help in my English learning. I started reading English fics because of this fandom. (There were not many Chinese Eric/Ryan fics, unfortunately. ) I knew very few words so I used to print out your, shadowfax27's and swift_tales' stories so I could mark the words I didn't know and write down the meaning of them to understand the stories. I feel bad for not having commented or told you how much I enjoyed your writing. (I wasn't good at English back then and I was a very shy person.) Tonight, I felt a bit nostalgic and wanted to read some fics I liked when I first came to this fandom. Sadly, I couldn't gain the access of your earlier fics. :'-(

Would you please, please, please add me to the filter? *_*

Re: Can I be in the filter? *O*
Sorry I took so long to reply to this. It completely slipped my mind. *is getting old*

I've added you to the filter, so you should be able to access all the fics now. I'm so please you like my writing and it's fantastic that it helped you develop your English. Thank you so much!
