AO3 Invites?

Okay...so, AO3 has this nifty feature where you can download the fic directly from the site.

This would save me a lot of time with the demented'verse, since I've been emailing out the PDF on an individual basis at least once a month, and sometimes multiple times per week. As much as I really don't mind emailing out the pdfs, it DOES mean that not only do people have to disclose their email addresses to me, I have to disclose mine to them. Which, you know, on the one hand is kind of cool, since sometimes I have little conversations - while on the other hand...I don't know what the other hand is actually, I mean, I haven't encountered any psychos so far, but that doesn't mean that my luck will hold out?

Maybe I just thought maybe it'd be easier to store my fic on AO3?

Who knows what I'm thinking (I certainly don't).

ANYWAY...apparently you need an invite to get an AO3 account...now, I could put myself in their queue, but I could also just ask my flist:

Does anyone have an AO3 invite that they don't mind sending my way? Thanks baruchan!

Sorry this post is so disjointed. I've just been writing and the character I was writing was sort of in a weird mental place and, being the empathetic person that I am, I can now not string a coherent sentence together.

P.S: Everyone enjoying those Jared on the beach photos today? I will admit that in a moment of weakness, I ignore my personal rule of not viewing paparazzi pics. The personal moral corruption was worth it.

I don't have invites, sorry, although yeah it does seem like a good idea to put my fics on AO3 too... I just wanted to say:

The personal moral corruption was worth it

YES. I have fluctuating personal moral values when it comes to pap pics, and this is one set of pics that I don't mind corrupting my morals for LOL

I have an invite code that I haven't used yet. What email address should I send it to?

I'm so glad you'll be posting your fic to AO3; once I started reading fic there, I fell in love with their system immediately. (It's also easier to download files to read on my phone, heh.)

That they were - nice to see he hasn't gained any baby-weight ;) (men get it too, I swear!)

Lol! Do they? XD Even if he had gained some weight, I still think he'd be ridiculously gorgeous. o///o

It seems many people do! I'm ever increasingly following links to fic over there - so I figured I might as well sign up and learn how it works. ;)

I've got the account set up now, and will probably look into copying my stories over tomorrow - I'll be posting here when it's all there. I may just move my favourite stories over. :P

I don't know if you've got an account on ffnet or not, but I tend to post my stories on LJ, then ffnet, and then import from ffnet into AO3- the importation process from ffnet->AO3 is super easy.

You should totally join AO3 (and I'm glad someone had an invite for you). There's a lot of good fic on there, the download format thing is super handy, and there are some perks from the writer's POV too.


And I'm not just saying this because I recently got an ereader and am looking to fill it up with long fic, no. Of course not.

Haha, thanks :)

I'm looking forward to exploring it. First things first is to get my fic over there.

All these features kind of make me want to get an ereader too.
