I'm not sure how many people (if any!) still keep up with this journal, but I figure this announcement should happen anyway, just in case.
I just finished doing a shitload of housekeeping for this community, and by "housekeeping" I mean "deletions". I've gotten rid of a lot of my older fic (pre-2010, basically)—these changes are best reflected on my archives
, but to summarize:
- All but two of my Gundam 00 fics are gone.
- Any fic I ever wrote that had a premise set in a roleplaying game is gone.
- My FFVII fics are gone.
The most pressing reason for this is that while I like having copies of my own work for personal reference (like to show myself how much I've improved), I don't necessarily want everyone on the internet to be able to see my immense shame about the way I used to write. If you, for some reason, had a particular attachment to a fic that is now deleted, I'll send you a .doc of it if you give me an email address, but otherwise it's safe to consider all these fics permanently gone.
In the future, I'm definitely going to be focusing more on original writing, since in the end that's really what I want to do with my life. It's NaNoWriMo right now, which is as good a time as any to refocus, I think.
