A place for comments or questions on my fiction, or else just for general chat!
In one of Isabeau's blogs, Altariel wrote: And I'd like to find out more about to what extent the website and the various LJ listings are any use for readers.
I used the web site extensively when I first discovered yours and Isabeau's writing, because things were well categorized and pretty much in chronological order, and you included Dwim's contributions. Three authors in one place, plus you had links right to the stories! It beat out trying to sort through your stories on ff.net by a mile. It was a wonderful introduction. I'll still go there or to ff.net for something that's not in the LJ-posted timeline, but it definitely got me off on the right foot into the Unabeauverse.
But now that I know what to watch for, I typically scan TFF for your new stories, or go to the LJ list if I want to reread something. (Since the Best-Loved Sons story arc is incorporated into the Unabeauverse timeline, the latter LJ post is the one I use.) The LJ list is concise and actually fits my preferences best - I like to read things in chronological order, with no regard to actual order written or adaptations in writing style. Having it all ordered in a timeline, with links, is awesome! I would say that I wish I'd had it when I first started reading your stories, except that some things don't fit well there (the drabbles, Silm fics, etc.) and I would have hated to have missed those in any way. The website does list all your Mithrils, too, which is definitely worthy to note somehow, someway.
That was my experience, for what one reader's thoughts are worth!
