the_bronze (7/29 05:01am): No problem :) MrsTattooedButterfly
MrsTattooedButterfly (7/29 12:05am): OK. Just saw the new chapters added to "Dawn of a New Age"! Serious update!!! :O
MrsTattooedButterfly (7/28 11:55pm): Oh, and for those of you who are reading "Fixing The Factors", I wanna know when you've gotten to the cell phone fight! :-D. Or if you've finished it, I just want to know what you think about it!! Happy Reading!!!!
MrsTattooedButterfly (7/28 11:50pm): @the_bronze, thanks for letting me know about Penny Drdful, I've been reading some of her stories and they're wonderful!
juggler (7/28 11:00pm): evlane anything by tempestt, I'm especially fond of Remember When. Also Family by stuffandnonsense . Also for something long Drowning in you.
AGriffinWriter (7/28 10:44pm): So I totally thought I had updated last night, and I was perplexed cuz I got a bunch of FF reviews but none on EF. I get back to my computer this evening and open it... I never hit "add story". *headdesk* #sleepywriterproblems
evlane (7/28 09:10pm): I've almost exhausted my my queue of fics to read, but I've limited myself to completed stories. Are there any unfinished stories that you'd still recommend reading, even if they've been abandoned?
EllieRose101 (7/28 05:55pm): @Dactylgirl I wrote a fic about the aftermath of The Gift. It's on here, called 'Without Her.'
EllieRose101 (7/28 05:55pm): Ahh, fair enough. Glad I noticed!
the_bronze (7/28 05:25pm): Oh okay :) I did wonder if it had something to do with coinciding with the works :)
Susan (7/28 05:18pm): The new chapter of Dawn of a New Age was published while the server work was still going on, so I'm guessing the email notices just slipped through the cracks. Our email system seems to be working fine.
juggler (7/28 01:26pm): Anybody have a suggestion for what I think of as 'Smut(or porn) with Friendship' fic? Something not too short 10,000 words +?
Dactylgirl (7/28 09:11am): Awesome thank o
Awesome thank you :D

the_bronze (7/28 04:38am): Dactylgirl, When She Kept Showing Up by Penny Drdful.
Dactylgirl (7/28 04:03am): Hi guys :) does anybody know any stories that deal with the direct aftermath of The Gift? I've always wondered what the night after Buffy died was like for Spike.
the_bronze (7/28 04:02am): EllieRose101 Same here I never got got an email chapter update of Dawn Of A New Age either.
SoaringClaws (7/27 11:40pm): I agree with juggler, In League With Serpents was one of my favorite feel good stories.
EllieRose101 (7/27 08:10pm): Checking it out right now.
MrsTattooedButterfly (7/27 06:46pm): :-D
William Fox (7/27 06:15pm): I agree about Fixing The Factors!!! Give it a read . . .and I am off to re-read it. :)
MrsTattooedButterfly (7/27 05:43pm): @EllieRose, you've got to read "Fixing the Factors"!!!! There's a few chapters that had me laughing so hard it hurt!!! Trust me, you won't be disappointed!! ;-)
EllieRose101 (7/27 04:37am): Thanks, guys.
Mia Vaan (7/27 04:06am): @EllieRose101, try the oneshots 'A Twisted Welcome', 'Stumbling Through Love', 'The Plan' & 'Tale as Old as Time', all of which cheered me up when I found them. Also try 'Fixing the Factors' or 'Pandora's Boxer' if you want longer stories.
juggler (7/27 01:02am): I also find anything by NautiBitz to be fun, hot and smutty (if that appeals to you)

Members of the Month

We have so many wonderful authors and reviewers here at Elysian Fields, and now you have the chance to help us recognize some of the members who make EF such a great site. Every month we will have two members of the month, one author and one reviewer. So, how are the members of the month chosen? That's where you come in! Starting on the 1st of every month, nominations will open and you can head over to the nominations page to fill in your choices. Not sure who you want to nominate? You have until midnight on the 20th to get your nominations in. Also, if you change your mind, you can change your vote since the nominations aren't counted until after the 20th (your nomination only counts once no matter how many times you change your vote or hit the submit button).

Since nominations are open for most of the month, we're choosing for the following month (for example, right now nominations are for the August members of the month). After voting is over...

Adopt-A-Fic

I just wanted to post a brief news item on Adopt-A-Fic, a new category that was recently added. A few members wanted a way for authors to show that they are no longer willing nor able to finish a WIP that they have written, and they are now interested in giving the fic to a new author so that it may be finished. If this is the case, authors may add the Adopt-A-Fic category to their stories so authors interested in picking up an existing story can easily find available works. There is some debate on author interest level, so the category has been added on a trial basis. We will re-evaluate the necessity of such a category after one month.

The decision for a story to be added to the Adopt-A-Fic category is that of the original author alone. Please do not contact authors asking them to do this. Asking an author to give one of their stories to another author is one of the surest ways to anger them.

Challenges

A little while back EffulgentEllie and 3hours made a couple of suggestions for the challenge section, so I did a bit of work to hopefully fulfill their requests. When you look at challenges, you'll notice that at the bottom there are 2 new options. If you see a challenge that piques your interest that you might want to respond to at a later date, just click the first option [Save this challenge] and the challenge will be stored on your saved challenges list, which is accessible on your account info page. If you see a challenge that you don't want to take on, but feel like it's a great idea that you'd love to see come to fruition, click [Second this challenge]. You can see how many members have seconded a challenge on the top row next to the number of responses. In the example below, you can see a '+1' because one member decided that Puddinhead's challenge is awesome and should definitely be brought to life. If 2 members seconded the challenge, it would show a '+2'...
