My, oh my. Things have changed around here, haven't they? Take one good peek in after some time, and a whole new forum pops up.

But yeah, Polk Kitsune here. Used to d reviews of every stories of Whateley as I went. It's been a long, long time since then. Things get in the way, things change, writing slows down, and along with that, distractions come in.

But recently started reading again, enjoying again. Not sure if I'd be able to continue now, and I don't think I'd ever keep up the pace to catch up to the new stories. But it was really nice to have people read, and enjoy what I thought of the stories.

What does worry me though, is that I can't find my way back to the Fanfiction section. Was pondering if I shouldn't re-post my story, maybe with a bit of editing put in. Or should I find another place to put it in?

Reading the FanFiction section is open to all, but you need to PM Kristin to gain access to post stories in the FanFiction section now.

Ah, thank you. I'll have to take care of that then.

And I take it the fanfictions are in the content folder, that's currently empty?

FanFiction has its own place on the forums, The Tunnels

Actually Polk, we're trying out a new program with fan fic. The forums is still the home of the 'trial and error' and 'in progress' stuff but we're now set up to have fan fiction authors with 'complete' work publish that to the main content lists much like canon work. As time rolls along, the hope is that a sort of 'council' of fan fic authors and editors and reviewers will point at specific pieces of fan fiction and say "this needs to go the published route" ... at which point that author will do some extra editing, work with an editor, or whatever they need to do to put some polish on it; and then we'll give it full published status. Pieces that still need work or aren't really complete or were just sort of experiments to play around with in the world will stay in the forums for workshopping and whathaveyou. Fan fic authors that regularly get stuff to the quality level that merits publishing are likely to be ones that we will want to kidnap for canon status anyway... so this serves as a good test process and a clearer road to what is involved in getting canon status. But even without canonizing anyone, it puts the best fan fiction where people can find it to read it. And that's a win no matter how you look at it.

Fate guard you and grant you a Light to brighten your Way.

Polk! Hi! I remember you.

Don't worry about remembering me, I was a lurker in your heyday. :p

Mmmnnnn. Interesting idea. Very interesting. Especially getting the chance of getting into the published work area, along with getting some extra help along with it. It'll probably be rare, but it happens.

The other question though: what is considered a 'complete work'? Hrm. Mine could say it's 'finished', but open for more... Well, I suppose you'd be the judge.

Looking forward to see those who make the bar :3


And Hi Nagrij ^^

It's fine to be a lurker sometimes, not easy to step forward sometimes.

Glad to know I'm remembered. I can only hope it's good memories. ;3

Well to be fair it was mainly seeing your name everywhere on the old site, and on a review of every story.

I guess that counts as good memories, right?
