As you should know by now. I write. Not a lot, not very fast and maybe not really great writing but decent enough. (Or I should say, I hope it doesn't stink too bad.)
*ANYHOO*, some of my more current works are at the lotrff archive. It was an established archive who was owned by a fan, well thought of, tolerant, and some of my favorite authors posted a lot of their work and spent a lot of time designing their layouts there. I felt safe posting there.
Then yesterday, the site disappeared. An announcement was then made that the site had been sold to a new owner entirely, and one who is in it for the money. (More details will be under the cut.)
To make a long story very short, I am going to be taking my work off lotrff. I hate to do it, but I no longer feel safe and I don't trust what may or may not happen to the site. Since we are almost into a major holiday/three-day weekend, I have decided to remove the stories on 6 July. I know how much it troubles me when people delete things with little warning, which is why I'm trying to allow anyone who wishes a chance to grab my stories if they want. (They're all fairly short, btw -- nothing very long or multi-chaptered.) They'll still be archived, just not there.
And now for more gory details, if you choose to read them... Actually, maybe you should. It might prove important to someone as the new site owner is eager to acquire more fic archives for monetary gain. Just so you can give others a heads up.
