To the many loyal and kind readers who have supported my work:
I have recently deleted all my stories from this site. It was a long time coming, but events in recent weeks have finally spurred me to action. Not only have I had two friends experience their works plagiarized directly from the site, but have also become aware that this site allows bots to report/archive my fic to other sites without my knowledge. I find both things highly unsavory.
I remain in fandom through my Live Journal account, but this profile - and my dealings with this site - will end August 31st.
I appologize to those of you who have been so very kind to me, who have reviewed, said wonderful things, and to those of of you whom I've not responded. Please know your words mean a lot to me, even if I didn't thank you for them. This site is where I got my fanfic start, and I leave with a sad heart.
