So, I've been absent for a while. All sorts have been going on really - I started self-employed work, and have recently had to stop again for a while at least because my brain is just speshul like that. Not even a mental health issue this time, either. Regardless, I've been busy in one way or another, and social media is a thing that I let slide.

Anyway, a result of being off work is that I've actually had a crack at doing some writing again. First time in years other than noting down some ideas a few times. Kind of ironic, because I can't actually see terribly well at the moment. I can still touch-type, however, and zoom and spell-check are my friends! I'm hopeful I might actually finish something for a change this time. That would be fun.

I have a question for you though, fanfic readers: I've also decided to finally bung my old fic on AO3*. Shall I bother backdating the publish date to the original ones (many pre-date the AO3 site), or shall I just put that info in the notes and leave the publish date as the date I publish to AO3? What's of most use / sense to a reader or browser? I'm leaning towards backdating tbh. It feels tidier.

In conclusion / summary: Hi! (I wonder if anyone's even still there/reading? O.o) Give me your fannish opinion! And I really am going to see if I can incorporate DW/LJ back into my day. Would love to catch up with the flist!

* Some of it at any rate. Some will no doubt be mercifully culled.

Heya! Always good to hear from you. :)

I backdated my old stories on AO3. It will still show up on RSS feeds as new work, but I liked having the stories all in order and in historical context (e.g. "um, I wrote Buffy a LONG time ago, please don't expect that there will be any more forthcoming, ever!").

Going well! :D At the moment I seem to have fallen into MCU fandom, lololol, which makes me laugh at myself a lot - it's always the fandoms you least expect that get you!

Yeah, exactly! it's good to be able to have it in order so you can see that progression through different fandoms and writing style. :D

Yay for writing! Hope you keep going with it. :) And haha, yeah, MCU, the fandom that eats all fandoms - damn you MCU!

I was reminiscing about the old days with some people the other day - remember 15 years ago, when we had to post our fic to mailing lists, and made our own websites, and had dial-up internet, and walked uphill in the snow BAREFOOT? Lol.

Hi!!!!! *glomps*

I didn't backdate my work, simply because I didn't think if it at the time - and also I don't remember original posting dates. Don't know if readers care anyway. :-)
