E-mail.

The one freaking thing I forgot to back up before reformatting my hard drive. Because I always use webmail, and I *forgot* that I had three. bleeding. years. worth of e-mail downloaded to Eudora, in order to finally clean out my webmail folders.

Every piece of feedback since 2000 (up to sometime early this year). Every e-mail exchanged with zortified or wolfling [for some reason I hadn't downloaded those yet] or Saber... every original piece of CG feedback, back when I was writing it and people actually had things to say besides "Hey, are you ever going to continue this?"

*poit*

Vanished.

Fuck.

I'll add to the hugs and sympathy. And say that I have a copy of the feedback I did on 'Fredful' for what it's worth. And I can always read all your stuff again and do some long and complicated feedback for you, trust me, re-reading your stuff won't be a hardship!

Oddly, I have my replies to that feedback, still, but not the original e-mail. That must have been right where my cut-off date was for downloading to my hard drive. So if you'd be willing to forward it to me, I'd love it, thank you.

Hee! I love you. Totally not necessary, but I love you for offering. :D

OK, message being forwarded now. And offer was genuine! Just to give you a (possible) giggle, that was the first bit of feedback I ever did!

But I loved it -- you got what I was doing. Which showed immense intelligence considering how unsure I was of what I was doing! *hug* thank you!

Yay me! But it was one where I sat there and thought - hang on a minute, if ...then ...., but ...! And then gave up and had to ask!

Seeing as I am obsessively anal and given the choice, save *everything*, I would love you 4-ever. Not that I don't already, for Pointy Face and Puppy Head Plushie Theatre.

I'm so sorry. That's rough.

:) I think I've finally managed to make it into "Ah well..." mode. Or at least if I keep saying so long enough, it'll eventually become true. ;-)
