After a year and a half of posting my work at fanfiction.net, I have decided to discontinue use of their site. I will no longer update any more of my fiction here.
used to be a place that we all could call home. But lately, they've gotten absolutely ridiculous. I'm not talking about the NC-17 ban, although I thought that was also insane and even wrote a petition protesting the ban. I'm talking about their ham-fisted selective removal of stories, of which not only I seem to continue to be victim of, but members of my fan fiction family as well.
It is common knowledge that certain fan fiction communites - such as Subreality, Left Turn at Westchester, and so on - have axes to grind with me for reasons that I fell asleep and stopped caring about ages ago. So now that the mud-slinging and the flame wars are over, they've decided to resort to string-pulling in 2003. I find it amazing that, in a category with close to 4,200 stories, mine keep getting targeted to be removed while writers lower their NC-17 fics to R and don't get touched. The people at are deleting my stories, but can't seem to tell me why. I will not continue to patronize a site where the administrators 1) are led around by their balls by so-called "elite" fan fiction writers and 2) don't have the courage to say, "We don't like you because _ doesn't like you; get off our site." No offense to anyone, but I'm very tired of it.
So I have taken down all of my work here. I will continue to write - in fact, "Daddy's Girl" will probably be updated by the end next week, with "Xavier's Orphanage" being updated by the end of the month. I am also working on four brand-new stories:
- "The Measure of a Man, (NC-17)" which is placed after "The Hammock" but before "Daddy's Girl," (this will probably be done at the end of the month as well)
For about seven months, I have kept an interactive mailing list that allows me to inform readers of my work whenever I have updated a story. You can sign up at http://. Registration is free. You can also find all of my work there, and until my site goes up, all of my updates will be posted there. It is also a message board with dicussion from comics to the new X-Movie to fan fiction and everything else you can think of.
I apologize profusely for this decision. I credit fanfiction.net for being extremely convenient in terms of being able to find your favorite writers. (I mean, who the hell wants to have to go to 30 different sites?) But I feel like these people are pulling my tongue straight out of my mouth, and I can't tolerate that. I can't tolerate censorship, especially when it's being maqueraded as some sort of "protection for the children." I don't have children. I don't give a damn what your kids read.
But now I'm rambling. I hope to see you there. I try my best to keep in touch with my "public" (gah!) as best as I can, and without fanfiction.net, that's going to be rather hard. But again, I just don't see how I'm going to be able to tell my stories without the DOUBLEPLUSUNGOOD police saying, "You can't have that! That's BAD! No story for you!" I think signing up for my mailing list would be the easiest way. Oh yeah - my live journal can be found at /users/stormfreak.
I'm sincerely grateful for every review I've received, every person whose read my stories and all of you.
