Slightly Friends-Only

I write fanfiction for a wide variety of sci-fi and fantasy based fandoms, particularly Stargate SG-1, and sometimes dabble in other fannish pursuits. A detailed breakdown of my specific interests can be found in my profile, while a complete index of my fic lives here, at least in theory. You might also want to check AO3 and/or my last few LJ posts, because sometimes failures to update happen.

Requests to friend or defriend belong on this post. If you're just here for the fic, feel free to just add me without asking, but once things are back to normal (which they will be any second), fic will always appear on my website before it gets mentioned on LJ. I never flock fanfiction, icons, wallpapers, or posts about fandom. I always flock posts that mention my real life, my job, or my family in any way. Anything else is pretty much decided on a whim.

In answer to repeated requests, my fanfiction labeling/warning policy is here This link may also be found in my profile, or to the left of this post, or on the top of my fanfiction index. Please glance over it before reading my fanfic if you are concerned about triggers. If you are interested in it as an example of a warnings policy, keep in mind that it's very specific to my body of work, and made unnecessarily complicated by a couple of atypical fics in my collection. I strongly urge anyone borrowing any part of it to edit it very carefully for their purposes, and not use it to influence what they do and do not write themselves. In my opinion, warnings and labels should be created after the writing process, not before.

01/28/11: I'm having issues with my website and my fic index seems to be missing. I hope to have the problem corrected this weekend. Thank you for your patience.

01/29/11: Holy broken links, Batman. My apologies, but the damage on UTHOF needs to take priority. The fic index will follow, and then I'll get back to addressing individual missing fics. In the meantime, most of my most popular stories can be accessed with the menu on the left hand side of this journal.

Some day in February: I uploaded an old version of the fic index. Bunches of stuff is missing from it, but all the older stuff is there. If you need anything from 1997 - 2008, that's where to look. For more recent stuff, try AO3 or the sidebar of this journal.

Slightly to the Right of Attila the Hun

Apparently I'm a "Satanic Jezebel" guilty of "spreading lies about the past to undermine the Word of God" because of the "filthy" Star Trek Voyager meta I wrote years ago. Does anyone know where in the Bible I can find the passage on Commander Chakotay's planet of origin?

Website Issue

Apparently someone has fiddled with the script for Yahoo Webrings, causing them to act as redirect scripts. This seems particularly pointless, as it makes it impossible to visit any page in the ring, since visitors just get looped back to the hub page. Also, who uses webrings any more anyway? Are they just trying to remind us they exist? If so, it worked, I remember them now, and I'm off to nuke them.

Sorry to anyone who has tried to load my fic index in the last few days, or however long this has been happening. Arg.

In semi-related news, the IP I had for spiletta.com didn't work consistently. I contacted Prohosting, and they gifted me with a static, dedicated IP. It's 69.168.84.249 if anyone's interested.

ACTA in a Nutshell –

What is ACTA?  ACTA is the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement. A new intellectual property enforcement treaty being negotiated by the United States, the European Community, Switzerland, and Japan, with Australia, the Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Mexico, Jordan, Morocco, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, and Canada recently announcing that they will join in as well.

Why should you care about ACTA? Initial reports indicate that the treaty will have a very broad scope and will involve new tools targeting “Internet distribution and information technology.”

What is the goal of ACTA? Reportedly the goal is to create new legal standards of intellectual property enforcement, as well as increased international cooperation, an example of which would be an increase in information sharing between signatory countries’ law enforcement agencies.

I Feel Selfish



Just a reminder that the I Feel Selfish Ficathon is going on, and pretty much any creative fandom activity is accepted -- fanfic, fan art, manips, wallpapers and icons, fanmixes, fanvids, macaroni art, whatever. Plus, lots of fandoms and pairings to choose from, including het, femslash, and slash. Enjoy!

FYI: Spiletta.com will be dark tomorrow

Just FYI my site will be down tomorrow for the PIPA protest. Obviously my fanfic is unlikely to get enough traffic for that to matter much, but my horse racing site gets several hundred visitors a day, which makes it worth it.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but if PIPA passes, I doubt my site will survive long anyway, so better one day dark than a lifetime, right?
