There has been much kerfluffle over ff.net yanking M-rated stories without warning. I've received several frantic messages from people there, so yes, I am aware of the issue. Frankly, I've always expected to be banned and have my stuff pulled from ff.net because I very blatantly violate their "no explicit content" rules. (Mainly because when I first started posting I never actually read the rules and figured I was safe using an M rating.) *cough*
To me, mature means mature
and why have that rating if that's not really what it means? I don't even know. But whatever. I don't get the point of ratings, anyway. People will read what they want to read and putting it behind a little 18+ clicky box isn't going to make a bit of difference.
Anyway, with that said, I only ever post there after
I post my fics on LJ, so they are always on LJ first and foremost. Many of my links point to the ff.net version (which is failsauce, because now I have to go back through all my boatloads of tagged fics) just because it was easy. I will, eventually, move everything to AO3 - I don't have that many there since I'm trying to edit them first and make the AO3 versions all pretty and nice.
I will be sad to lose my reviews, but I have backed up MANY. For the couple of really old fics whose whereabouts I can't currently place, I backed those up, also. I used the site below, which worked like an amazing thing of amazingness. It lets you backup both fics and reviews in several different formats. It's SO COOL to see the reviews in PDF format! I would totally use it for downloading and reading if I had a fancy reading device thingy.Storymaster
So, that's where that sits. I'm actually curious to see if they do delete some and, if so, which ones. Because I have MANY.
starts prompting tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EXCITE!!!
