I guess I'd actually better do something with this page, huh? If you want to know more about me as a writer and a fan,(zerrat). It has my musings, issues with plotting, rantings, progress updates and snippets from other fics, as well as LJ-only material (various ratings, heh).
4 March 2012 - I'm mostly moved over to(http://archiveofourown.org/users/Zerrat/works) as I'm wowed by the amazing setup of the site. It's the home of most of my newer (and exclusive to AO3) fics.
That's probably as much personal information as is needed here (if you want more, as I said, LJ's the way to go! I don't bite!) but I think I'll say a little bit on my works. Since it's recently come up as a topic in fandom discussion, I think I need to make this clear.
If, by some chance, I remove a fanfiction from this account, my LJ or AO3 or wherever this fanfiction was posted, if some industrious reader did save a copy of the fic onto their computer... By all means, you may share it with any others who have an interest in the fic. Just, credit where credit's due, right? Even if I no longer want a story to be a part of an archive (I've been known to delete fics I dislike) it's still my work.
So, tl;dr save, print, share my work as you like, but don't forget to mention me as the author!
Additionally, since this has also come up in the same discussions, nobody needs my permission to podfic, fanart or write extensions of any transformative work that I have posted. You don't need to PM me and ask, you can just do it. And then send me the link when you're done, because I'd love to see! :3
Of course, I doubt that anyone cares enough to do so, but people say that it might be a good thing to have. That way people know where they stand.
AO3 Archived Fanfiction
The below fics have AO3 options, and many of the fics now are exclusive to AO3. Please ignore the hideous links, this site has disabled external-going links. Yet another reason to move! Remember to read the warnings on the AO3 site.

Dance in the Dark (http://archiveofourown.org/works/187200) - Kain/Lightning. She was nothing like the women of Baron, whom Kain was normally besotted by. She was harsh and cold and fiery, and that stark difference was exactly why she fascinated him.
