That headline will look like secret code to some of you....Thing One
; Although the Middle Earth Fanfic Awards (MEFAs)are no longer run, aranel_took
maintains their wonderful Story Archive
which lists the titles of every piece that was nominated for the Middle-earth Fanfiction Awards from 2004-2011, with a link to each one. (If you didn't know this, then it is a fantastic library of good Tolkien based stories which could keep you happy all over the winter and beyond.)Thing Two
; The Henneth Annun Story Archive (HASA) is closing at the end of December. Many writers are making sure their stories are archived in other places, and other people are doing their best to make sure the stories by those who are no longer around fandom are also preserved.
What have these two things got to do with each other? The MEFA Archive contains links to every story that has competed in the MEFAs - and some of those links are to the version that is archived at HASA.
So - if you have ever had a story nominated for a MEFA, and think you may have given them an address at HASA, then you can (a) check by going to your own name in the MEFA Archive
, and (b) if yu did give a link to HASA, go to this post by aranel_took
, and give her a link to your story other than the one at HASA, and she will update the Archive.
By the way - if you have stories at HASA and nowhere else, I know that you would be very welcome to post them at Faerie
