I FOUND IT!
*leap with joy*
I finally found it - my original story of Different Roles: Immortal and let me say that it is about 10x better than I originally remembered just from the little I've skimmed.
Such joy I feel! The ideas are better, my writing is even better - it's before I decided to turn into a masochistic writer.
Dang I'm excited to read it! I'm still missing the last few parts because the site was too busy but I'll get those tomorrow dang it!
Had to share my overjoyous amount of happy!
I really really really wish I'd had the insight to NOT delete a lot of my older fanart and fanfiction so many years ago... More specifically the original version of Different Roles: Immortal.
*sigh* I found the damn sequel but the Wayback Machine can't get the first part. Or it hasn't been found yet. Or something... And none of the recall sites for Geocities can find anything related to it.
I have this perfect picture in my mind of sitting at the dining room table in my dad's house when I was in middle school or just starting high school and reading that entire story in a binder after I had printed it out and thinking I was going to rewrite this... and now that binder has disappeared into the realm of who the hell knows where (this sucks because I kept everything fanfiction-related, or so I thought) and I apparently despised the original version so much that I had to eliminate it completely from the face of the internet.
I. Am. Bummed.
So I've been thinking about this all weekend and looking at the responses that I've received from people and the bulk - rather, the entire majority save for a few people here and there - who have been supportive were B/A people.
Should I just stick to Buffy/Angel fanfiction then and focus the archive on them and the regions that that would encompass?
Of course, this doesn't surprise me considering the only fanfiction I read is Buffy/Angel centered in some way or another but despite that, I've reached out to other people and I've gotten around... nada.
Just thinking, I suppose. I don't want the site to become too top-heavy, if you catch my drift and only pertain to certain couples because I can't begin to grasp the amount of fanfiction that is out there that has nothing to do with Buffy/Angel and without people who are interested in that fanfiction to help suggest it... I don't think it would be included.
Just curious because the fanfiction I would want on there is Buffy/Angel - obviously - and without the people who read the other fun fandoms, I don't think it would get added in for a very, very long time or... ever. :(
I must admit though that as I thought about it, I was thrilled at the idea of just a Buffy/Angel centered fanfiction site but... perhaps I'm just thinking too narrowly.
Thoughts welcome. :)
Edit: Just kidding :p I thought about it last night while watching The Trailer Park Boys and while it may take a while, I think it will be better to encompass the entire BtVS 'verse.
