New and Updated Fanfic

21
Sep 2015

After binge-watching all three Mighty Ducks movies at work (I know, right?  My job is awesome), I suddenly got all inspired about being in fandom again.  So I did this (all links are local, no ff.net or AO3 links):

Updated:

A Christmas Carol: [The Mighty Ducks] Charlie Conway is 27, and his life is not going right. Can he be saved in time? This is neither slash, nor any form of love story, neither will it become one.

This story is finally finished.  It took me twelve years.  No joke.  I went to ff.net to check.


New:

Nina’s Home for Christmas: [Making Out – K Applegate] Zoey is a mother now, and it’s baby Wade’s first Christmas, and she has insisted that everybody come visit, but Zoey and Jake are having problems, and Lucas hasn’t quite got over the love of his life, and it’ll all come to a head because…
… Nina’s Home for Christmas

Admittedly, this should have gone up long ago.  It was a Yuletide 2014 gift for finkpishnets.


The Five Stages of Friendship: [The Mighty Ducks] The five stages of friendship between a Duck and a Warrior are: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression and Acceptance. Only angrier.

Something that sat, in very brief outline form, in my “to do” folder for quite awhile, and after watching the movies, I just surged through.


After that, I went through all of the old skins on the archive and started cleaning them up.  Once I’ve done that, I’m going to pick my favourite and skin this blog to match.

Well, underpants and garden gnomes.  I’ve somehow managed to balls up the update on my archive.

I will update when it is functional once more.

*sigh*

Edit: fixed. *sigh*

FYI – New Layout

12
Jun 2012

I’m working on a new layout, so if you have a look at the side and it’s all scrunched, or something moves 300 pixels to the left as you watch, or that you can’t even read this post because the background is so busy, that’s why.  I’ve finally got the hang out making layouts for WordPress, and so now I’m cleaning up the templates I have used.  Don’t worry, I’m not one of those stupid people who have such active backgrounds you can’t read the text.  I’m working at the layout one #div at a time.

Apologies for any inconvenience, although I doubt anyone is dropping by, so that’s a bonus.


Edit: So, the layout is finally updated, the archive is about to get an update and a makeover too.  Who are these pixel chicks on the header?  Taz and Anna, characters that seem to haunt me no matter what I write.  Sorry, I just didn’t want to have a specific fandom header any more.

Now using WordPress

28
Jun 2009

I am now using WordPress on my site.  I have been very wary of it in the past, because I have had so much trouble skinning it to my liking.  Even now, my favourite quote block is weird, and my links are lacking a box around them.  However, it is infinitely better than dealing with my stroppy “build a blog” version.  I love having tags and categories, and the plugins have come on in leaps and bounds since I last tried to use WordPress (around 2003?).

So far, I’m happy with it.  Now, to move it all over to the main site.

Oh, and do you like my Sparkly Harmony layout?  I love her.  She’s so pretty.

New Look!

22
Mar 2008

I’ve done a small new update on the layout of the site. Have tested it in IE and Firefox, and it looks better than the old version did in IE… why, why, why would you use IE when Firefox is on offer? I still don’t get it.

Pinkness!

28
May 2007

I have once more given this site an overhaul. It kinda looks like a raspberry exploded here, but I like it all the same. Now I have a pretty Denise Richards banner, and the layout works with all sizes of browser from 1024×768 upwards. It probably still looks alright in 800×600, but since few people use that setting any more, I haven’t knocked myself out making it work.

I’ve also moved all of my fanfic over to my automated archive, which cuts down on coding hassle when I fall in love with another fandom, or even write something new for a fandom I’m already a part of… it might happen.

Inevitably some people will hate the layout. Don’t care. It’s my site, not yours. I have learnt by experience that asking for input actually unleashes hell, you get demands from little fuckwits who believe that because they enjoy using someone’s site, that the owner of the site actually owes them – and if the user hates something, the webmistress should change it. Don’t care. I love pink, I love Denise Richards, am generally happy with the new look, so all is good.

Edited to Add: This site looks much better in Firefox. It’s useable with Internet Explorer, but gorgeous in Firefox, so bear that in mind. Also, why on earth would anyone stick with the ugly that is IE when they could have FF at no cost?

New Look!

Jan 2007

Well, I’ve finally updated. Nothing huge, but at least I’ve tarted up the look of the site. We’d been stuck on “Dark Jensen” for about a year. Now we have “Noir Boots”, the spangly boots of Noel Fielding, aka Vince Noir.

Music Vids – Sorted

5
Jul 2006

I have now sorted out the blog so we have categories and the music videos are easier to find. This is much better. I’m amazed it works.

The Starlight-Tales domain is now nicely sorted out, and I don’t think there will be much more content added than this – maybe a few downloads of my PSP stuff, like gradients and brushes and stuff.

God, I love Quirrell in Harry Potter, he’s amusing.

More done…

Jun 2006

I managed to grab a couple of minutes online and have uploaded the new look of the site – to be fair, it was not much, just a few div tags instead of tables.

Next I am going to sort out the music videos – which will probably end up in this blog – that way, people can comment, if they want.

We have moved!

29
Jun 2006

We have moved from Lycos The Spawn of Satan to DreamHost, and because of this move, I have deleted most of the sites, and now all that is left is the fanfiction – anything else on the sites (info, reviews, etc) has been taken down. The fanvids will be up shortly though. I will be working on that next… should I get any net time soon.
