Tags, Links, and Other Stuff  
I use tags and links on my LJ to help myself out. I am crazy disorganized and it helps...somewhat. While I am going to be adding some definite new tags and links, I was wondering if anyone on my flist uses them to search people's journals? Because if you do and use them on my journal, I figure I can rearrange some stuff to make it easier on you.

And it wouldn't just be for you. It would be for me too. I am always up for suggestions on making things easier and neater.

Any tag or link of mine you'd like to see on here? For example, I lump all my fanart together as one and I don't divide it out. I might be dividing that one up again, but I'm not sure yet. That's just an example.

And even if you don't use tags or links or barely come to my journal, if you have any suggestions, I'm open! :)

Huh. This just amuses me beyond belief. (Not you.)

I told you I don't usually get requests in the form of a person giving me a plot bunnies. The only fandom it's ever really happened in is Dark Angel fandom. And I've only ever written a handful of fics for that show.

And then it took me a minute to realize you're the same person who gave me a plot bunny for Alec/Rachel on ff.net *headdesk* Wow, am I slow or what?

You're not the only one in that fandom who has asked me before, either. I recall someone asking for me to write like a long plotty series. Short on time, and my interest more in SPN, I had to put that request on the backburner for now. Maybe it's because Dark Angel is old.

So if you're the same jane's membrane from ff.net, I'm plotting the Alec/Rachel one you requested. Then I'll see if there is anything I can do with this. I'm not sure I can do it, but I will think on it and see what happens.

Ohh man I did? I have got to keep track of people I write to. Ugh signs of old age.

I remember writing someone on another one of my bunnies, I just didn't realize it was you. Well I guess it's because I liked your writing very much.

Thanks again for looking at this.

As for your reply on tags, I agree that the by-character tagging may be too much if you've written about a lot of characters. But by fandom would work too. As I've said before, I usually end up reading more fics of an author by looking at their tags and checking out what other fics they have on a particular fandom or character.

Yeah, I'm trying to find a balance on my tagging. I think for moderate-sized fandoms, I'll have some individual tags and on small fandoms I'll just have one tag or two tags. I'll figure it out.

No problem on the bunnies. Like I said, I'm working out the Rachel/Alec one now, and I'll see what I can do with the wing one. The wing one sounds like it would be longer and more plotty, so I have to think about the direction a little longer.

As for Dark Angel fic, I belong to a couple of comms on LJ. I've found a few good fics there, but they have a tendency to be crazy type fics. Most of them are Alec/Max or Alec/Logan, though. I don't ship them, but if you like them you could try those. many are "heat" fics or other Dark Angel tropes. I'm not the best source on this. I only started watching DA and posting fic a year or so ago.

(Despite this saying Halloween, it's actually full of a lot of different crack!fic throughout the year.)

If you are seeking more romantic or plot-heavy fic that isn't insanely cracky, I'm not really sure where you can go :(
