My appologies to anybody who might have wondered where the hell I'd gone and if I'd ever be back. I hit something of a fandom burnout and didn't even log on to Live Journal for a couple of months. It feels stupid now, but keeping up with all the comms just got to be so time consuming. Once I skipped a couple of days, it was so easy not to go back. RL is busy enough on its own.

But I missed fandom. Mostly I miss you guys, my crazy fellow fans. And I miss working on my big, involved series stories. So I'm trying to ease back into fandom. I've cut back on comms, so hopefully it won't feel overwhelming again. I'd rather follow individual journals.

The next step for me is signing up for the OT3 Ficathon 2008. Time is running very short for prompt posting, so if you're interested, be sure to head on over and take a look. Ficathons = awesome! :-D

In other news, I got an email telling me that someone (thanks, whoever you are!) had nominated one of my stories for the Children of Time Awards. I've never been in a fic awards contest before, so that's pretty exciting for me. :-)

Welcome back!

I've been wondering where you'd gotten off to, but I understand the need for a break. :)

Congratulations on your fic nomination! It was well deserved!

Hi! RL ate me again. :-/

How have you been? I hear you're doing NaNo, how's that going? :-)

Welcome back! We missed you too!

Congratulations on the nomination! I followed the link - I've never even heard of the awards, so I wonder how widely they've been publicised? You definitely deserve the nomination, and I recognised a couple of other writers there who really deserve it too, such as honorh. I hope some more people nominate; there are definitely other authors who also deserve nominations :)

I think it's a brand new contest, so it might be that not a lot of folks have heard of it. It was a complete surprise to me to get an email from them, but then I'd been away from fandom so I wouldn't have heard anything, anyway.

It does feel good to be back online. :-)

Yay, I was starting to worry! (I was just looking back through the Epic Of Doomy DOOM and saw the last comment you made was, like, 100 chapters and a couple of side-fics ago by now...) Totally get the burnout, BTW, I've been there on a couple of fandoms in my day... which makes me sound so, like, old. {sigh}

RL ate me! I'm going to have to go back and catch up. It's going to be fun to read so much of that story in one chunk, though! :-)

Hehehe, oh, hell, yeah, Idunno if you even got up to the part where Owen ran off with Andy yet... >;)

Always good to know I'm not the only one who takes semi-accidental freak hiatuses away from LJ and even fandom occasionally. RL is super-consuming for me, too - even though I miss the carefree days of fannishness. This is my first real foray back into it, too. Just to leave you this note. :) I'd say "Welcome back!" but I suspect I'll be vanishing again myself until the Spring semester begins and things maybe settle down. But welcome back, anyhow. ;-)

greetings

This is adaliazandra's fic journal, which she hadn't planned to use very often. That plan has since been defenestrated in favor of posting fic update notices and rambles about DW and TW.

If you note the spiffy paid-account layout, that's because nightrider101 is simply the most wonderful person ever! :-)

If I seem to have disappeared off the face of the Internet, it's because I probably did. I don't actually *like* suddenly ignoring my LJ friends and leaving my stories hanging, though, so odds are I'll be back eventually.
