a fandom send-off
mod post
Hi, everyone. If what I tried to do has worked, posting access to sirius_loving is now restricted to - well, me. I've done this for two reasons.

The first is that this community was never intended to be a long term thing. It was a send off. A festival. A shiva visit. Not a place to pimp fanfic or artwork that was created long after the deadline (November 1st) passed.

Secondly, I got tired of chasing after people who didn't follow the community's rules when posting. (The rules are in the userinfo. They've been there since last autumn.) This isn't directed at any one person. No one tipped the scales. This is something I've been thinking of doing for a while.

If you've got a Sirius-centric fic or piece of artwork, and you want to pimp it, please check out sirius_centric. I don't want to steal their thunder anymore. :)

If you've got a late entry for the fest, of course you're still more than welcome to post it here! Just let me know, and I'll give you posting access.

Meantime, this community isn't going anywhere. At some point, when I've got lots of time, I'll tag each entry, for easy navigation. It will always been here as a tribute to Sirius Black. And of course, members and non-members can still comment.

Thank you so much for your participation. It had its bumpy moments, but this project was a labor of love, and I'm really, really grateful to all of you. Thanks. :)

RE: Sorry...

I for one owe you a big apology, which I hope you will accept in the spirit that it is offered.

I took up two of your challenges and then got caught up in a hail of real life that has left me with little time to myself. Though I did actually finish one of the fic's recently; I knew there was little point in asking for it to be posted, as you say once the deadline had passed I had missed the knightbus so to speak.

But I have read the fic's here when I could and thanks for taking the time to actually put the community up in the first place.

Cheers all the best. :-D

Re: Sorry...

Oh, no worries! I understand all about RL, believe me. :) My own contribution was late, and I'm the mod!

Actually, if you'd still like to post your fic, you're more than welcome to. Just let me know, and I'll restore your posting rights.

And thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed the comm. :)

Re: Sorry...

I will ask if I decide to put it up, my beta is finsihing her finals at present and she needs to go through the fic again before I would consider posting the fic. But thanks for the offer and I will be in touch if that's OK with you.

Again thanks :-D

Thank you for all the work you put into this, I enjoyed participating immensely.

I'd originally claimed three challenges, and posted one of them on time here. Another one I took and recently made birthday fic for me beta out of, but I'd like to post a copy of it here, because, well, this is were the whole thing originated. Is that okay?

Of course! I'll restore your rights right away. Yay! And Happy Birthday! :)

Thank you! Just posted it, and the formatting and everything seems alright, so you can take the rights away again. :)
