This is for all the Buffy and Harry Potter authors on my friends list. The original post talks about Buffy and Doctor Who, but when I followed the link, I saw that Harry Potter fandom is affected as well. I don't personally use fanfiction.net, but I know that some of you do.

Just a heads-up about fanfiction.net for those who might be interested.

http://ffdotnetrants.livejournal.com/134901.html

If these numbers are correct, fanfiction.net just deleted roughly 12% of all Buffy and Doctor Who fic on there with no warning, no chance for writers to correct the perceived problems, and with temporary bans for those who get their stories deleted. Going by some comments I've seen, most have been removed either for using non-grade-school-friendly words in their summaries or for including "love scenes" that aren't considered "tasteful" (their words), but that's not the only thing they go by; one fic was apparently removed for including the word "killed" in its summary. One or two people have reported having their stories reinstated after mailing support, others have gotten rude replies that basically boil down to "RTFM, STFU." Personally I haven't gotten any reply at all after three days.

It might also be interesting to note that ff.net have blocked the possibility to export fics to AO3.

If you want to back up your ff.net stories and reviews, Storymaster seems to work pretty well.

Okay, just because I'm bored, and also super curious - what are your phobias? What freaks you out more than anything?
I thought I'd share mine first, because honestly some of them are freakin' bizarre:

Birds - I think this is reasonable. I'm fairly certain that they're proof of the devil. I can't even look at drawings of them.
Falling - I could be on a stepladder a foot on the ground and become convinced that I'm going to lose my balance and fall. For this reason, I avoid really steep hills, stairs I'm not used to, and escalators.
Cockroaches - I felt sick just typing that. Ugh.
Mannequins - My Ma has one in her room that she has DRESSED UP. Like it has a fucking dress and a hat and scarves and shit. *shivers*
Having super dry hands - If I touch certain types of material with dry hands... I lose my shit
Wearing turtlenecks or having anything wrapped too tightly around my neck - I seriously feel like I'm going to die.
Milk - I don't even know with this one. I just can't. I can't even think about it. I'm okay if it's mixed in with food, like pasta or mashed potatoes, as long as I don't see it being made. When I bake cakes and need to use milk, I get someone else to pour it for me.

So. What about everyone else?

So today I played my uberhood and decided to visit Jessica Peterson. She herself had a visitor, one Jennail Tricou.



Nevermind the fact that's it's daytime and she's a vampire, nothing much out of the ordinary right? For some reason they hate each other (might have to figure out what's going on there...)

And then I look to the right. And I see this:



Let us examine the WTFery of this photo:
  • There are six Jennail's. Not including the one bitching out at Jessica
  • Someone has peed everywhere
  • One of them is discussing fried eggs with her clone
  • One is doing a full-on exorcist twist
You better believe I clicked out of there without saving *is worried about her game now*

HALP!!!

Okay so I think I have borked my game. Or maybe not, but either way someone is not right. Basically, no grey hairs are showing up for females. It's not that bad because some of the custom greys are still in the custom bin, but seriously. WHAT DID I DO? And how do I fix it? Can any other simmers out there help?

Does this make any sense? Here's a pic, apologies for the shitty quality. SEE? Where are all the elder hairs? They show up for the males, why not the females? Am I being an idiot, and is the fix really obvious? I don't know...
