Michelle's Den
Fiction Addiction
The Quick and Dirty Guide 
2nd-Feb-2015 03:18 pm
I decided to take down the fic list, because I was horrible about keeping it up to date and there are actually better places to look for my fiction than this small spot. So instead of a fic list, now you will find here: Michelle, the Quick and Dirty Guide (wow, that sounds kinky).

Who is this Michelle anyway?
Well, I've probably been around fandom for longer than is strictly healthy. I started out with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, followed it up with Angel the Series (a logical choice). From there I proceeded to Lord of the Rings (where I'm still hanging out) and LotRPS. When I'm not reading, writing or maintaining communities for those fandoms, I take little peaks at stuff like Blood Ties, Supernatural, Merlin or Moonlight.

I've always taken an active part in fandom (because I believe this will provide you with the most fun). In this way, I've accumulated quite a few websites/archives/communities/groups over the years. If you'd like a list of my fannish activities, go here. And if you want to get a hold on me on a social networking site, you can get a list here. I'm a fan of trying out new stuff, so you'll find a little more than your usual ff.net link on there.

What can I expect in this journal?
This journal is probably 60% fannish, 20% geekish and 20% totally random. There is fanfiction. General fandom-related stuff. The occassional rant (very rare, though). And that's about all. You will not find great insides into my personal life.

Is there fic? WHERE is the fic?
Yes, there is fic. As to the where: For starters, it is not on Livejournal:) All my fiction can be found in my Skyehawke profile. This is actually the best place to read my stuff - nice site, easy on the eyes and you don't have to register anywhere to review or read any of the content. Big plus. The Master List of Doom is on my own site, in alphabetical order.

Do you have a fic list by year?
Of course, complete with fandom info, word count, rating and summary.

Can I archive your stories?
Please don't just take and archive. I am not amused when I find any of my texts somewhere on the web where I didn't put them myself. In short: Do not repost my work without my knowledge. That said, if you want to host one of my stories on your archive, please ask by commenting here. I won't bite (despite my addiction to vampires), and I will generally say yes to such requests - especially when I know you from somewhere.

Can I podfic your story? Remix it?
Fanworks about Fanworks:  All my fanfiction is open to further transformationas, as long as it is non-profit and done by fans for fans.. This inlcudes, but is not limited to: podfic, remixes, commentary, sequels, the use of original characters, reviews, meta and of course quotes. Please credit the story in question, and frankly I would love to know about it (this is me, being curious). However, there is no need to ask in advance. And you don't have to be afraid to step on my toes.

What's your friending policy?
In short, there is none. This journal is 100% public. Feel free to come and go as you please. You will get no extras once you've friended me, you'll not be in an exclusive club and I'll not necessarily friend you back. Yes, the more visitors and commenters, the merrier, but I don't mind how and when you stop by. Friend this journal, read it via your favourite RSS reader, bookmark it, stop by occasionally - it's all fine by me. I really feel no vanity towards the shortness or length of my friendslist.There's also no need to ask me whether you can friend this journal, I will never say no anway:)

I don't want to miss your fic! How do I get updates?
It's soooo obvious that I'm making these questions up - no one would ever say that. Anyway, if you want to get fic updates, you have several options. Friend this journal, because I will always post an alert when a new story or chapter is up. Subscribe to my blog's feed to get the same effect. Or, if you're not interested in all the general chatter and random fandom (hey, that rhymes!) stuff, you can also subscribe only to the fic alerts. For more traditional users, there's a newsletter (which always lists all the places a fic got posted) and for the Twitter users out there, I have an account you can follow (strictly for fanfic, I don't use it for anything else).

Hehe, I know them all! ^_^ Not much? Hey, that's already a lot of stories! Not that there wouldn't be room for some nice new stories... *innocent smile*
3rd-Feb-2006 05:22 am (UTC)
Yesyes, I'm working on it. Don't rush me or I might accidentally kill off one of the main characters! Wouldn't want that:)
3rd-Feb-2006 03:22 pm (UTC)
I would *never* rush you! ^_~ (Bunnies do what they want anyway.) I wouldn't be able to write faster if an orc was after me - not that I insist on trying. And don't you dare kill off the main characters or... or I'll write a romance! :D
5th-Feb-2006 01:39 pm (UTC)
A romance? Oh my.... good thing I actually plan to keep them all alive!
5th-Feb-2006 01:25 pm (UTC)
Yes, we want new stories ;)

And I just thought of 'Nightstalker' as a humorous parody. Because I was laughing the whole way through. Ahh, gotta love your own interpretations ;P Well written, though.
5th-Feb-2006 02:34 pm (UTC)
Waaaahhhh, you read "Nightstalker"! And even though it's slash *gasp*. But you're right of course. You can read all those crossovers as parody, because they are so out there, you can't possibly take them seriously.

*gives your icon a hug*

~ Thank you.

Hi! I've stopped by via Legolas_Aragorn_Slash to friend you.

8th-Mar-2006 05:09 am (UTC)
Hi! Friended you right back. Someone with a Sawyer icon fits right in here:)
4th-May-2006 04:32 am (UTC)
Kann ich dich mal was fragen? Wie machst du das, dass dieser Eintrag in deinem Journal immer ganz oben bleibt? Ich finde das enorm praktisch!
4th-May-2006 05:04 am (UTC)
Vordatieren. Dieser Eintrag ist vom 2.2.2010, deshalb steht er naturgemäß ganz oben:)
4th-May-2006 10:09 am (UTC)
*headdesk* Ich hab schon das Vordatieren beäugt und überlegt ob es das sein könnte, aber dann habe ich nur Tag und Monat geguckt und gedacht, das kann es nicht sein. :P Die Jahreszahl habe ich komplett übersehen. *g* Darf ich mir die Idee klauen? Ich möchte meine Stories mal irgendwie in eine Art von Reihenfolge bringen, und bei dir macht es das so leicht die Stories zu überblicken (und sie zu finden, falls man sie lesen will ;-).
4th-May-2006 02:51 pm (UTC)
Die Idee ist nicht von mir, folglich darfst Du sie gern entwenden:) Ist sehr praktisch für einen Überblick. Meistens sind die Story Listings in Archiven ja doch irgendwie verwirrend.

Das erste Kapitel meiner neuen A/L ist übrigens on. Falls Du's nicht als WIP lesen willst - sind nur 3 Teile, die sollten spätestens nächste Woche gepostet sein!
5th-May-2006 01:20 pm (UTC)
Das ist prima! *freu* Ich finde man hat so auch einen besseren Überblick als wenn man das alles in einem Profil auflistet - da muss dann doch noch eine Menge mehr drinstehen, und schon geht es wieder durcheinander.

Hab's gefunden! *g* Du entwickelst eine gewisse Tendenz zu gemeinen Cliffies, wie es scheint. ;-) Ich bin jedenfalls froh dass die Geschichte schon geschrieben ist, da fällt das Warten leicht (abgesehen davon kann ich dich ja auch gut spammen wenn du mal ein Update vergisst. *eg*). Hihi.
6th-May-2006 06:22 am (UTC)
Cliffie? Was ist das... wart erstmal auf das Homecoming AU *snickers*. Ich muss mich schließlich für die ganzen bösen Cliffies revanchieren, die mir Autoren bisher angetan haben!
6th-May-2006 09:42 am (UTC)
Aber ich bin doch ganz unschuldig! *jammer*

P.S. Das hätte mir ja einer sagen können dass das Wasser an der Stelle in dem Fluss nur knöcheltief ist... ;-) Aber da er ja offensichtlich eingeschlafen ist könnte er trotzdem ertrinken! (Legolas, tu was!)
7th-May-2006 05:02 am (UTC)
Keine Sorge, DAS würde ich doch nicht machen:) Kapitel 2 wird irgendwann heute Abend gepostet. Als Beweis, sozusagen!
9th-May-2006 06:59 am (UTC)
Okay, ich glaub's! :) Legolas' "Rettungsmaßnahmen" waren durchaus zufriedenstellend. :D

Thanks! That's always what an author wants to hear:) And feel free to friend away, I don't mind at all!

You will always find all of the fic on this list, but at the moment I'm in the process of uploading my stories to Skyehawke. I'm searching for an archive that I really like to have everything in one place.
4th-Jan-2008 08:06 pm (UTC)
I LOVE YOUR WRITTING. my fav is Temptation, OMG it was incredible. I would also like to friend you if I may. Keep the stories coming PLEASE.
5th-Jan-2008 02:20 pm (UTC)
Friend away, the more the merrier!

And I will definitely keep the stories coming - the bunnies don't let me breathe for most of the time anyway:)
21st-Aug-2008 01:26 pm (UTC)
Huhu! Ich hab gerade gesehen, dass du dein Wolfverse nun wirklich fertig hast, ich gratuliere! *schmeißt Konfetti und überreicht Champagner* Ist das Absicht, dass man bei "The Road Taken" keinen Kommentar hinterlassen kann? Ich habe überall nach einem Review- oder Kommentarknopf gesucht und nichts gefunden. :(
22nd-Aug-2008 06:52 pm (UTC)
Yupp, das ist Absicht. Ich poste die Story ja nicht hier im LJ, deswegen möchte ich eigentlich verhindern, dass Leute gerade hier kommentieren. Der Review-Link geht zu Skyehawke, weil da mein virtuelles Fanfic-Home ist und im Moment auch das einzige Archiv, das anonyme Reviews erlaubt (ging bei lotrff.com noch nie und bei Mirrormere leider auch nicht mehr - das haben wir wohl den weltweiten Spammern zu verdanken).
21st-Aug-2008 01:28 pm (UTC)
Okay, hat sich erledigt, ich hab den Reviewlink gerade auf shyehawke gefunden. *verlegengrins*
7th-Apr-2009 02:01 pm (UTC) - Hello...
Left you a message through 'Fanfiction on the Run' but thought I'd contact you here as well.

I would love to have your permission to convert your stories to .mobi format and post them the community I have set up to support Fanficion for the Kindle.


Thanks for considering this.

Hi - you don't know me, but I've been hoping to join Skyehawke and can't get ahold of anyone or register on the forums. I'm wondering if you might know who I could contact, since there's been no response from the skyehawke.com email and Tien Riu's Yahoo bounced back? Sorry to bother you, but I'm not a fan of FF.net and have enjoyed reading at Skyehawke, so I just...was hoping to contribute a little. :/
9th-Apr-2012 07:09 pm (UTC)

You can get in touch with me - which you already did:) Please leave me a message at michelle [at] waking-vision.com (this should also be cickable on my Skyehawke profile if I'm not totally mistaken) with your desired username and a little something you've written.

Looking forward to your mail!

Whats up with Skyehawke? Its been down for several days. Says the domain is expired. Is help needed with money?
