Back in April when I was in the middle of my archiving project I came across an old story by one of my favorite fic authors. Yesterday I tried to add the story to my Kindle so I could read using Calibre, it ran for 7 hours it but it wouldn't convert. I tried again, letting it run all night, no progress.

I tried uploading it online and converting it that way, still no luck. It certainly wasn't the biggest story I've converted, and as I almost always save the stories as text docs I decided to open it with Word and see if it there was something else going on.

Word crashed because of all the typos and mistakes.

It took me 4 and a half hours to go in and remove all the triple spacing, the 'two words stuck together' like 'alot' 'eachother' 'infront' and remove all the spaces between the quotation marks and the words. Fun stuff. After all the editing I tried converting it again. It took 37 seconds. Wee. The things I do for my fandom.

I did keep a copy of the story in its original form in my archive because that is how the author posted it. I wouldn't dare mess with someone else's work permanently without their permission, but at least it will load on my Kindle now.

I need to get writing

I was cleaning up some folders on my desktop computer looking for a fanfic I knew I had started but couldn't find on my laptop, which is where I do most of my writing. I found the story and 14 others that I kind of forgot I had been writing, some dated all the way back to 2003. (oops) Add those to the ones that I'm actually, currently writing and that's over 20 stories. I really need to finish up and post some of these fics.

been a little busy with real life

I'll get back to posting a Fic a Day when I can get a few hours to set up another set of recs. I usually set them up all nicely formatted with links and everything in a text document a month or two in advance (some 30-60 recs), so everyday all I needed to do is cut and paste, voilà all done! It only takes a few seconds a day to post, but work went crazy and I have No time to set up my list. I hope to get things going again within the next week.

it makes me laugh, especially the bit between Quatre and Wufei in the parking lot.

Love, Drag and the Kinsey Scale
by Casey Valhalla
Pairings: 1+2 and 3+4
yaoi, AU, heero pov, crossdressing
Author's Notes: The Kinsey Scale: the results of a study conducted by Dr. Alfred Kinsey in the late 40's and early 50's. The concept is that human sexuality can be attributed to a seven point scale, ranging from 0 to 6; 0 being exclusively heterosexual and 6 being exclusively homosexual. The conclusion made is that the majority of humans fall somewhere in the middle of the scale, and fluctuate along it over the course of their lifetimes.
