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
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.20062007200820092010
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?What's your friending policy?
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.
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 newslette
r (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).
