slaymesoftly (5/19 06:51pm): was taking my laptop with me, which I'm not. I'll work on it when and how I can, but I don't expect to have a completed chapter until we return in mid-June. I apologize for any frustration this causes, but I'd rather have a good chapter to post than a prompt one.
slaymesoftly (5/19 06:49pm): This is what I've posted in the Chapt. notes of Forgivenss Doesn't Come Easy. It will be the last chapter for a good long while as I complete some needed research, as well as taking a trip out of the country. I don't expect to have much time to continue working on the next chapter, even if I

Laurinha (5/15 05:47pm): @SlayerOfSunnydale, on AO3 there is a non-Spuffy (also a WIP) of Dawn and Buffy and the pre-Hindsight story.
Laurinha (5/15 05:44pm): @SlayerOfSunnydale, that is Toften’s Hindsight. https://dark-solace.org/...=5755
SlayerOfSunnydale (5/15 04:25pm): Thanks @hannora
Hannora (5/15 04:22pm): @SlayerOfSunnydale: No, unfortunately. I'm looking though. I'll let you know if I find it. *fingers crossed*
SlayerOfSunnydale (5/15 04:08pm): @hannora do you remember the title or author?
Hannora (5/15 03:26pm): @SlayerOfSunnydale: I remember reading this one, Buffy was immortal and she spent a long time with Willy in his home dimension.
Hannora (5/15 02:59pm): @readingismytherapy: Darn, I thought it'd trigger someone's memory. I posted the same clues on Find a Fic forum. I didn’t find any fic called "Obvious" Did you mean "Oblivious"?
SlayerOfSunnydale (5/15 02:55pm): Looking for a fic where post series Buffy gets sent back in time from a world where Willow became evil and (I think) there was a slayer civil war back to season four. She and Spike get engaged and there is some Ethan centric drama. Oh and pretty sure buffy was dating willy the snitch at one point

Known Issue: Mobile Posting from Google Docs

Hi all,

We have some bad news. We learned today of an issue posting from Google Docs on iOS to the site. Basically, when you paste the text into the site (or most other places on your phone that we could see), certain special characters are not being correctly copied, so when they paste you get something that looks like — when all you wanted was an em-dash.

The good (?) news is that this is a widespread bug caused by either Apple or Google, and not anything we did, and is affecting other sites, including AO3, and other apps such as Apple Mail, Notes, and so on. Unfortunately, this makes work-arounds a little tricky. Posting on desktop is currently unaffected by the bug, but we know not everyone has access to desktop. If that applies to you, then the best option is probably a free Office 365 account, but even here we found during testing that copy/pasting from Docs to Word that certain formatting such as italics and bolding were lost. Copying from Docs to Word to EF also...

Final Reminder for April Event Participants

This is the final reminder for everyone who has posted (or is still planning to post) for our April event: please use the new crediting system on the upload page. And triple check that you have got the username(s) of your betas, sensitivity readers, and/or artists spelled correctly, including punctuation where relevant. This greatly helps the Mod Team and means everyone will be able to get the awards they’ve earned faster going forward.
