With thanks and appreciation for the approval of the mods --


Yes, it's finally happening, lol. Said I'd get this bloody thing up somewhere...




Dear The Brian/Justin Fanfiction Archive authors,

I’m reaching out to you today about The Brian/Justin Fanfiction Archive, a Queer as Folk (US) fanfiction archive dedicated to the pairing Brian Kinney/Justin Taylor. The archive was founded in the 2000s by Tonya, who was eventually overwhelmed by the volume. A group of people chose to take it over, but sadly, those people dropped off and it was left to a few of us to manage it. Those people, Nightsister and Elyxer in particular, went far and above anything we as a fandom could have hoped. Unfortunately, people fell away and though I hired and paid people to manage the site it didn’t go well.

However, I have also contacted the Organization for Transformative Works (OTW) for assistance in moving The Brian/Justin Fanfiction Archive’s content to a collection on the multi-fandom archive they maintain, the Archive of Our Own (AO3). (Specifically, I will be working with the Open Doors committee. You can read about their recent import projects at http://archiveofourown.org/admin_posts?tag=18.)

Here is where I would like to ask for your help!

1. If you already have an AO3 account and have posted your The Brian/Justin Fanfiction Archive works there, please let me know your The Brian/Justin Fanfiction Archive pseud(s) and e-mail address(es) as well, so that we won’t import your stories. (We can also e-mail you instructions for mass-adding stories to the new collection on the AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/bjfic)

2. If you don’t already have an AO3 account but would like one to import your stories yourself, please let me know your The Brian/Justin Fanfiction Archive pseud(s), and the preferred e-mail address to send the AO3 invite to. (We can e-mail further instructions for importing stories and adding them to the new collection on the AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/bjfic.)

It's been forever and ages since I've posted anything on or DW, much less anything requiring code, so I'll fix any wonky links if necessary.

Any questions, contact either me or Nightsister and what we can't answer, we'll find out for you. You can see the Ao3 announcement on their home page for more info.

(Cross-posting where I can think of - if I miss anywhere, let us know)


Thanks,

cael

Every. single. time. my shell hosting company announces a planned outage for an upgrade for something having to do with email, and they assure me that it won't impact me at all and I won't have any email outage, every single time they've wrong.

I'm not going to embarrass them in public because they do try so hard and are quick to fix broken things when I bring them to their attention.

It's just that, by now, I'd hope they'd just email me, "Hey, Siderea, we'll be fucking up your email at this future date and time. We'll be around on Twitter until this subsequent date and time. Please be available during this window to exercise your account and let us know what we've broken this time."

Instead, I email them in response to the planned outage announcement and say, "Hey, what can we do in advance to make this work?" and they're like "nothing, it's all going to go perfectly!" and I'm like, "ooookay, when exactly will you be flipping the switch, (so I know when to check on you, but I don't say this part)?" and they're like, "oh, sometime on that weekend." *throws hands in the air*

(I miss nyip.net so hard.)

Optional: If you would like your secret's fandom to be noted in the main post along with the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret. If your secret makes the fandom obvious, there's no need to do this. If your fandom is obscure, you should probably tell me what it is.

Optional #2: If you would like WARNINGS (such as spoilers or common triggers -- list of some common ones here) to be noted in the main post before the secret itself, please put it in the comment along with your secret.

Optional #3: If you would like a transcript to be posted along with your secret, put it along with the link in the comment!
