Sites are back up!


More announcements and details in the appropriate places later (am off to unexpected family birthday party at the moment; hopefully online later tonight) -- but

Pointy Stakes and Wolfling's Lair are back up. In new locations, so if y'all have bookmarks to change, these would be the spots.

S/X and Violence still isn't re-created yet, nor is the Wes Slash contest, so those links will be broken; everything else should be fully functional. (Minus a few icon sets that are still incomplete and thus have been removed.)

Pointy Stakes also has various new stuff there, though nothing that hasn't been posted in LJ.

Muchos gracias to everybody who's helped find files to recreate these sites (and lori for providing the webspace) -- I'll list off specific people with appropriate slobbering gratitude, in a post to follow soonish.

Hmm.

I shall make a mental note to change your site locations on the Buffy Fiction Archive database tomorrow. I'll get around to the individual pages on a somewhat more leisurely basis, depending on how very bored I am at work tomrrow. ;-)

Thanks for reminding me I need to contact archivists. Wonder who else. Not ucsl; there's no sitelinks there to begin with. Allaboutspike, I suppose. Erg -- people should just magically *know* when I move my site. Poof!

I know!

I think I got you and Wolfling all updated on the BFA this morning. Although, doh, just realized I'll have to go in and fix story links over at PolyRecs, too...

Thank you kindly! That answers the question I'd made a mental note to ask this afternoon and never got around to actually asking re: James W's relocation.

You read my mind. Cool.

Yes. Also, you really do need to do laundry, and the small shiny thing you were looking for is under/behind the couch.

*waves*

Just came looking for your lj to find your new address... and read your bio. And saw your icon. And scared the crap out of my neighbours screaming "YES!"

Who came up with 'Spander'? What *is* that? It's painful and awkward and *cliquey*.

*goes to read more S/X*

I can handle "Spuffy" because it's become the shorthand way across the fandom to talk about the actual canon Spike/Buffy relationship -- but the doing it for unconventional pairings, for fanfic shippers, just bugs me. (I get it as a joke, but not the way people are actually starting to use them seriously.)

It's an anime thing that somehow got imported here, and...ecch. It works in anime because the characters have long, multisyllabic Japanese names that don't make funny sounding English words when you put them together -- they just make different Japanese words that we don't know the meaning of any more than we did the original names. With English names.... well. Ecch.

Not that I have an opinion. ;-)

I can handle "Spuffy" because I don't actually *like* Spuffy. It's still an ugly word, but I'm not reading about it no matter what it's called. *g* Plus it seems to have come into play as the ship first emerged (and like you said, it's fandomwide). "Spander"... who renames a ship when they join it?!?

It's an anime thing that somehow got imported here

So we need to go after the dual fans of anime and slash with baseball bats. Um, no offense to them. Really, though, if the word "lemon" starts showing up, I'm breaking out the axe.
