Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

At your service!

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

An Emma fic that I absolutely loved is The English Night Sky by Bernadette E over at DWG. It's a modern Emma but a fab one! I really recommend it!

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Does anyone here have any problems with accessing the Jane Austen department at fanfiction.net? I cannot reach it anymore, as it says that the site no longer exists?

Just wondering if it's really down or if it's just me?

Thanks!

Kind regards,
Marloes

---------

Never mind, I found it. Instead of one category ('Jane Austen'), they have now separate categories for each of the novels ('P&P', 'Emma'). Phew, glad that it didn't suddenly disappear!

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Marloes...actually thanks for posting this because if I wouldnt have known, I would have freaked out when I visited the site because I have it saved as a favorite link. Guess I will have to redo my favs. Thanks again!

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

I know RL is a real block to many writers but will we have more of Sophie's intriguing " Symphony No. 2"? thanks Irene

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

I need help! I been looking for a story, Darcy and Col.Fritzwilliam go into a battle and Darcy ends on the edge of a river in modern day where Lizzy and Jane find him. please help i think it might of been on HG. does anyone know the name of the story????

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

It reminds me a little of one of Julie C's stories, a time traveling story too, but I believe it was a colonel Fitzwilliam story rather than a Darcy story. At any rate, I believe she pulled all her stories from the various sites.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

thank you for helping

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

I am trying to remember the name of a story in which Darcy forces Elizabeth to become a companion to Anne. She becomes friends with Anne, then problems, lots of angst, new characters. Eventual happy ending of course. Thanks for any help.

Half Such A Sum

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

ty for your help found it. it is Finisterre

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

where can i find Half Such A Sum?

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

theresa
where can i find Half Such A Sum?

I searched in the JAFF index. It used to be in HG but that site is not longer available which means that the wonderful story is lost perhaps for ever...*sob*You can always send an email to the authoress.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

oh that is sad thank you

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Hei, can I have tha author's e-mail too? I've been searching for half such a sum for some time but I was unable to find it...there are many excellent fics out there that I can't reach since HG is out...any idea when will it be up and running?

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

While we're at it, I wanted to ask if any of you knows how to contact Donna L since I'd love to read her fictions 'An Aquaintance' and 'In the Shadow of her Sister'. Any help in this matter is greatly appreciated, thanks^_^

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

That is the sad news...it will NOT be running any more. The owner of the site has stated that already. As to he author's email...I ve no idea. She is called Shelby that is all I know. Unfortunately, HSAS was only posted at the HG. Sorry
Oh, you could try the JAFF's index for an email.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

I've read the message. I dare say, a mighty short one to announce the end of an era. For years it has been the FF home for hundreds if not thousands of fans, and it feels sad, and awkward too, that it's lost forever. I've been an on and off visitor/poster myself since 2003.

It's hard to imagine that A. will ever start again from scratch. There are too many sites now that function well, and particularly AHA has taken over HG's methods, sphere and... members. Authors who are still active have ample opportunity to post elsewhere, but I do wonder about all those wonderful stories of authors who have left the fandom. Will they ever be retrieved? Such a shame...

Anyway, many memories go through my head now, the avid reading, the lively, sometimes a little heated discussions, the encouraging comments I received for my own stories and those I posted for others, and I'm particularly grateful to have met - in person - a couple of wonderful ladies from all over the world who were active members of the HG.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Hello....I'm really sorry HG has shut down forever...I've started reading P&P fics a short time ago and I remember the site being down since I began...but there was still the chance I could access it at a later future...sigh. An opportuninty lost, I guess. Anyway, I contacted Aly to ask her for her fiction 'An Imprudent Match' and she told me I could ask other people to e-mail or sharing it since she no longer has that version on her pc and everyone remember to attach her name on her works (whatever they are). That said, I ask if any of you does have it saved and would mind sending it to me..pweese? Oh, another question: is there a chance that the webmasters of HG will try to create another site similar to the one just shut down?

That seems most unlikely. Since the webmistress asked herself to pass the message on, here it is:

"Hey, for those of you that still care:

I know that HG has a splash page up or what not and no stories. There were technical losses behind the scenes. I don't know when or if the site as it was will return. Many things were lost. And, right now, I am in school and overwhelmed. I am sincerely sorry for the loss of HG and would love to come back someday. If that happens, however, HG will very likely have to start from scratch.

Please pass this along.

With regrets,
A."

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

I am so sorry to read the news about HG. I too was a fan for many years an had still hope it would be restored again. In any case. Thank you A. for your investment and efforts and for brightning and enriching many of my days and nights (1) with those wonderful stories, which I will keep forever in my memory and heart.
All the best for your future!

[Looking for Finisterre by Sabine Griffith.


For as far as I know, it's unlikely that this story (written by Sabine Griffith and Angeronic) will be finished. But you can ask our own author Tanya whose alias is Sabine Griffith. You'll find her e-mail addy on the bottom of her pages.

In principle Sophie finishes her stories, and I'm sure it'll be the case with this one too, but she has a very demanding job, so there's little time, I fear, to sit down quietly and write. We will just have to be patient.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Try LiveJournal. I found it after a desperate search for Finisterre a while back when I got to the end and it was incomplete. This hasn't been updated since 2006 and not posted in order of the story's timeline.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Hello, I have a certain scene of a ff story in mind but can't remember neither title nor authoress, can anyone help me please?
D is courting E at Longbourn but has to bully a brother of Charlotte Lukas first who is E's intended (according to Mrs Bennet).
E encourages D by taking his hand under the dinner table.
Thank You

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Look for 'Fate and Consequences' by Linda Wells.
I hope this helps.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

thanks Maria, but no I don't think it is Fate and Consequences, the Mr. Lukas I am referring to is a funny and kind of boasty type, but not nasty.
The scene I have in mind is quite funny, and so far I could not find in Fate and Consequences.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

is this story completed?

Sounds like "By Every Civility In His Power" by Maria Faith

Not sure where to get it but you might check the JAFF Index.

Sandy

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Maria Faith writes terrific stories and you can find her gem, "By Every Civility in his Power" through the Jaff Index at Austen Interlude.

I am also looking for a story.
It's not much to go on, and this is all I remember, but it is driving me crazy:

It's a Regency -- Darcy and Elizabeth are separated for some reason and she writes him a letter and all she says is "Please come".

Help!

Hi Gwendolyn,

I think the story you are looking for is Lewis' "Rocks In The Stream". In it, there is a note to Darcy from Lizzy that says "Please come back." It is at the end of chapter 21.

Here is the link: http://meryton.com/mrr/Lewis/rocksindex.html
Sandy

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Thanks so much, Sandy. That's the one. You have saved my sanity.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

thank you Gwendolyn. I had been travelling for some days and couldn't check here for any replies, but yes you are right it's "By Every Civility In His Power".
I had been looking for it in different stories for quite some time, starting to think I had invented my own ff.
Now I'm looking forward to read it all over again. Thanks to You.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Looking for a fic...
I think it must have been a forced marriage, because the scene stuck in my head has Elizabeth afraid of Darcy, and darcy feeling very upset when he realizes that she thinks that he'd hurt her...
It's been a long time since I read it and for the life of me, I can't recall it's title.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Hello, I'm searching for a fic. It's called To Boast of my own Child and I was unable to either find it somewhere other than HG, or find the Author e-mail...can any of you help me?
Merlyn do you remember something else about the fic you're searching?those with a forced marriage are my favorites and if you have more details I could help...

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

I remember reading a story by Ayden some years ago and think it was called 'Windmills Of Their Minds', if I am not mistaken.
Being a great admirer of Ayden's writings I wonder if it is still available.
Also, 'Galleries of Whispers' had such a promising beginning and was taken off suddenly, much to my regret. Is there a chance to it ever getting completed?

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

I've remembered a fic I read some years ago: it's completed and the only thing I know for sure is that Elisabeth and Darcy were journeying to America(?) and their ship suffered an accident and the two of them had to spend some months on a desert island. It was regency(in some dialogues they talked of the impropety of living togheter) but I can't, for the life of me, remember the title of this work. They were rescued I think...do any of you know about it?

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Sanguine by Kat25 available at FanFiction.net

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

It was, indeed, Sanguine! I haven't read it in some years and I recommend it to you all: it's really good! Thank you, Malena, for your information^_^

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Hi. Looking for a fic.

It's a modern story, Lizzy and Darcy have a son together. Most of the story is set when Lizzy's son is two years old and he is called William. Lizzy is living in Manchester. Jane and Charles are married and invite Lizzy and Darcy to their home. They lock Lizzy and Darcy in a room together for Lizzy to tell Darcy that he has a son. Anyone recognise it?

It's Reflections indeed. I've been looking everywhere for this fic but I couldnt remember the name. Thank you very much Bonnie.

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Merlyn,
I just finished reading Take Me Away by Jill Tarah. It is on AHA. It has the criteria you mentioned--arranged marriage (not really forced) and she is afraid of him at one point. It is a western though so not sure if that is the one you are looking for.

~~T

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Thank you Theresa. I don't think that's the one, but I'll definitely go check it out.
I have moved on in my searching to look for a story I can remember in more detail. This story had begun near rosings. There was a storm and darcy took refuge in a tenants cottage, where he meets Elizabeth. They share a "moment of passion". Later, when darcy goes back to look for her he learns that elizabeth and her aunt had only been passing through. The tenant couldn't remember the gardiners name, so darcy didn't know where to start looking.

Merlyn...I don't know about the first one you are looking for but this one is "No One Can Compare" by Sofie...it is at DWG http://www.austen.com/derby/old_2003/sofie5.htm or you can find it at Bennet Girls Site, too.

It's been a long time since I read it and for the life of me, I can't recall it's title.

This one could be "A Marriage Worth the Earning" by Mary L.
Here is a quote
The intimidation Elizabeth now felt was even greater with her husband standing a few feet away than when he sat high above her. For every step he advanced forward, she stepped backward. Noticing her distress, Darcy halted, slowly shaking his head, and then rolling his eyes. "Elizabeth, even though I am angry, I have never laid a hand on a woman. My threat a moment ago was meaningless. I never should have allowed myself to utter such idle words in the heat of anger. Please, do not fear me."
With fiery eyes, she cried, "I do not fear you, sir!"
He inhaled loudly, sighed, and then rubbed his hand over his mouth and chin. Then, with prodigious effort of maintaining his self-possession, he spoke patiently. "I hope you do not. I would never strike you. However, I do insist that you never, and I do mean never, walk into Lambton unaccompanied again.

I don't think this story is finished yet. It was posted at DWG, and at Meryton.com. This could be the one you are looking for.

Sandy

Re: Have an urgent question about ff stories, ff sites, ff authors...?

Thank you Sandy! You are amazing! Those were the ones I was looking for.
I'm impressed and appreciative.
