"Breaking Glass" gets some love

I'm tickled pink to report that "Breaking Glass", a story about Giles and Ethan on holiday, about magic, and about portals, got some lovely attention from the Fang Fetish Awards round 9. The notes from the judges made me particularly happy.

And I note that flistians sahiya, ubiquirk, firefly124, and mireille719 also got some well-deserved kudos. The fandom was ready for stories about Giles and Snape, ready and eager. More crossovers, please!
You'll notice, perhaps, a new feature of my all-singing, all-dancing, all-automated, untouched-by-human-hands fic archive: serieses now have all in one printable versions. E.g., the Breaking-Glass-verse stories. My question for you: how do you like your printable versions? Are they more useful when tuned for offline electronic reading or do you really print them? Would you prefer PDFs?

In other news, I think I might be in love with Scrivener, but I need to live with it a while longer before I'm sure. Most "writer's editors" are gimmicky junk; just use a plain-text editor, shut up, and write. There is no silver bullet. But Scrivener seems to provide me with the tool that I need when I'm outlining, and to transition well to prose-writing. And it imports from MultiMarkdown-formatted text files, which is the plain text markup mode I use for all my story source.

Okay. One more item for tonight. There will be no predictable new fic from me for a while: the WIP I chose to make progress in is, um, gonna take about 50K more words to conclude. Hey, at least I now have an outline I can believe in telling me I'll need all those words! Anyway. No new fic any time soon. So, to scratch what I hope is a mutual itch, DVD commentary time, in which we all prove that the author isn't dead to us no matter what the critics say.

Pick a story that I haven't done already. I'll write commentary. Maybe I'll do two, if inspired.
