All of Dark Solace is down, including Elysian Fields. I'm working on getting this fixed, but I have no idea how long it'll be out. Just thought I'd let everyone know.
First of all, happy birthday to angelic_amy!!Secondly, I received this email pertaining to Dark Solace, and, as the writer requested, I'm sharing the love."Hi Holly, as a dedicated fan of Spuffy fiction, I needed to tell how much I appericate your concept. For me, all of this fanfiction is pretty new, never used a computer before Oct. of last year. Not my generation to use one and didn't need one for my vocation, so last year my youngest son bought one for me and slowly I've learned on my own about it. The only thing that I had even the slightest curiosity about was my favorite actor, James Marsters, so I found a link @ his website and began discovering fanfics. Books have always been in my life. Always loved reading, watched and loved BtVS from the beginning, and James of couse! So as I'd discovered all the wonderful Spuffy stories, written buy people like you, I felt the need to express my appreciation for bringing some of the best authors together for the sole purpose of support. Without aurthors, like yourself, the wonderful Buffyverse would be lost to only the 7 seasons that we had to enjoy it and all the ways we Spuffy fans wanted things to have gone for our favorite vamp and the slayer. I do try and review everything I read, to show my support, but sometimes it doesn't feel like it's enough, wished I could put up a banner to all of you who write for us, saying how much you are appreciated, keeping them alive for us. Maybe this will achieve part of my mission, I hope so. Please pass the word on to anyone can, I know that you have author sites in which you communicate with each other. With all the sincerity I can express...Thank you."This from Verda Kay. I don't know if she just emailed me or if she emailed everyone, but I encourage everyone to write her back and let her know how much we appreciate her extremely kind words.
I emailed you guys a while back about this, but it bears repeating. I have added the link to our updates mailing list at DS (thanks again for the suggestion, Schez!) Here's how you work it: Sign up, using your Yahoo! ID. Whenever you update a fic, just email the update to firstname.lastname@example.org. This will automatically post the update. That's it. Easy as pie, right? Also, we have two new affiliates: Whispers of Eternity and Insane Buffy Fans. Happy Launch-Day, everyone!!
Hello everyone!I am so excited that everyone has finally got together and joined our little LJ home-away-from-home...Launch Day is Thursday, so on Thursday we all need to post a link in our personal journals to the main page, Dark Solace...however you want to do it...that way, we reach the biggest audience possible...although many of us have mutual friends...still, let's kick this off with the biggest fanfare possible!I am so looking forward to this! I hope that all of you are as well....Right now this is just a journal for the members of Dark Solace...We may, in the future, open up an LJ comm for the community itself, to let people know that the community or personal pages are updated...what do you all think?
Hello all...This group, since we all have LJs, will be for announcements and general support...which we all need sometimes...This is to compliment the round robin emails from me, the general group emails from Holly, and any other news or announcements that anyone has...Anything you want to share can be put on these pages...this group will have f-locked posts for members only, and only the members can post or read here...this way, if we miss each other on messenger or email, we can catch up one way or another...Feel free to use this however you want...I just thought that it would be a good idea to have another way of keeping in touch besides email and messenger...Have a good day all!
