I'm On AO3

I've decided to archive my stuff at "An Archive Of Our Own", and today I got the invite and created an account. At present, it's mostly putting up my back archives of work (so I have a copy of things somewhere other than my hard drive, for future reference), and I'm going to try to stick to about ten items a week until I have the backlog posted, probably across the whole variety of fandoms I've written in.

Have a dekko - it's over here if you're interested.

At present, I'm just grabbing what's available (one item from each fandom, in a range of fandoms), so the first ten are up, and they range from fun and silly right the way through to hot and heavy. I'm trying to get them put up as close to the original "publication" order as possible, so the dates I'm using are the dates I last edited the original files on the hard drive.

(Oh, and why AO3? Well, I figure it's a damn sight easier to have everything in the one place rather than trying to keep track of multiple lists across multiple archives and journals. Plus they're a bit more flexible in their policies than the Pit of Voles.)

The Fun Things That Show Up In The Local Paper

We've not been receiving our free local newspaper recently, which is sort of a pity. However, it appears they've found a new distributor for our area, and a copy showed up on our front verge this afternoon. And what a pleasant surprise it was...

Front page headline: 'Drag Strip' anger

My partner made a comment about this being rather misleading - "well, y'know, I was enjoying the show right up to the point where it became obvious that she was... well, she wasn't a she, if y'see what I mean."

My mind, being the FF7-fixated thing it is, immediately started scripting the article:

A Very Generalised Fanfiction Rant

Okay, this is very general, it isn't aimed at anyone in specific. This is just me getting something off my chest so I don't damn well explode.

Characters have names for a reason. Use them.

Seriously, if I see many more fics where the various characters are referred to by their height, their hair colour, their age, their gender or anything else other than their blinkin' names, I'm going to go potty.

This rant brought to you by far too many fanfics wherein Cloud Strife is described as "the blond(e)" and entirely too many where people try to coin new words to describe the hair colours of Sephiroth and Zack.
