All the hug to you, pfeifferpack. I hope the green slime monster gets slayed very soon. Yay for fun genetic testing!

slaymesoftly (4/18 04:28pm): Feel better, Kathleen! Happy birthday BBE
pfeifferpack (4/18 01:29pm): So.... see you all later likely tonight! Have a wonderful day everyone.
pfeifferpack (4/18 01:28pm): Otherwise... my husband indulged my deep desire for one of those DNA tests. Now I'll find out what the heck I am. With this unshakable cold I'm thinking it'll say I'm related to that Mucinex green slime thing in the ads. Been putting my family info on Ancestry.com too so it's been memory lane time.
pfeifferpack (4/18 01:26pm): I'm needing sleep. Yeah, haven't been yet even though I got home from work early (about am). I am WAY behind in my reading and commenting. I also have a couple of chapters of my own to write and post. Will be trying to get caught up bit by bit by the end of the weekend.

JustWriter (4/18 12:19pm): Ooh! That reminds me! If you're fans of Period Dramas but would enjoy some new material that's a bit more obscure, the guy who made Downton Abbey made a mini-series called "Doctor Thorne" and it's available on Amazon Prime. They also have "Love & Friendship" an adaptation based on Austen's last nove
JustWriter (4/18 12:12pm): Thanks Pfeif! I kind of wish I could visit that studio. The sets look amazingly real on the bits I've seen of Downton Abbey.
JustWriter (4/18 12:10pm): You can click on it right from the homepage (Most Recent)! I highly recommend it for its comedic aspect as well.
JustWriter (4/18 12:07pm): Hey everybody! Read Northmann13's "Unknown Poet". It's lovely and sweet.
JustWriter (4/18 12:06pm): Happy B-day BBE!

Get Ready for Challenge Month!

We know it's been a challenge having to wait for our April site event. However, we're only a few days away! We can't help but show our excitement for challenge month. No, really, you can see it with our brand new event skin, which will be our featured skin through the entire month. If you want to make it your default skin for the month, make sure to change it in your preferences page.

In order to make sure everyone understands all that's going on, we'll try to cover everything here. If there's something you're not sure about, please let us know in the comments. There's a lot of information in this post, but please read the whole thing to be sure you know what's happening in April.

How and when do I post my story so that it's part of the event?
After midnight on April 1 (site time, which is Eastern US time-it's listed under the shoutbox), post your story as you normally would. Once you've added your story, find the challenge you're responding to on the challenges page or in your saved challenges list (if you've already saved...

April Challenge Month

So, for those of you who have been members (or lurkers) here at Elysian Fields for a while, you’d know it’s not exactly a secret that we love Challenges. heartsAnd for anyone who was unaware, all you have to do is check out our Site Events page.

We went ‘live’ as an archive in October of 2006, and it’s become somewhat of a tradition over the last few years to celebrate that fact with a site wide event. And the response has always been phenomenal, from authors, artists and readers.

We look forward to these Challenges, and seeing and reading what our wonderful talented members come up each year is awesome. So awesome in fact, it made us mods ask the question, “Why can’t we do this more than once a year?”

Well, there isn’t a reason to not host a site challenge more than once a year. And as it happens, you lovelies--our members--have already planned it for us. Our site has a veritable treasure trove of inspiration in the form of member-written fic challenges, and they...

Goodbye 2018. Hello 2019!

It was another amazing year in our corner of the Spuffy world. We celebrated our 12th birthday with the 12 Years 12 Seasons Challenge, which produced 31 wonderful new stories, we were lucky enough to have OffYourBird join our admin team, we passed the 5,000 story mark, and we continued to work both behind and in front of the curtain to make sure that Elysian Fields remains a welcoming, user-friendly place to be.

With no sign of slowing down, we're excited for 2019, which will include some site events that you won't want to miss. Also, we're set to register our 20,000th member sometime this year, which is no small feat. We promise to continue to do all we can to make sure that Elysian Fields feels like home.

Three cheers for everyone who made 2018 special at Elysian Fields, and who are carrying that energy into 2019! Here's to the authors, the artists, the commenters, the readers, and even the lurkers (no time like 2019 to come out of the shadows) cheers.

2018 by the numbers:
Total number...
