Spring 2019 Cleaning

16 Feb 2019 01:55 PM  

I went ahead and nixed the Original Works category (there wasn't much in there anyway), so now the BHN Archive is pretty much exclusively fanfiction and fandom-related material. Yay? 😅

Also, I realized that I still have quite a few more stories to import--mostly old stuff that I was desperate to bury because it was so bad--before the Archive is completely up-to-date. Hopefully the addition of all these old fics will escape the notice of the general public.

It bears mentioning: yes, all these stories are written by one person: me. Young me and present me. So if you stumble across something stupid, asinine, and grotesquely awful, don't be alarmed. Be encouraged; there really is hope for everyone, and no one is born a perfect writer.

Especially not me. Holy crap, definitely not me.

Bye Bye Tumblr

15 Dec 2018 07:08 PM  

In a few days Tumblr will be bidding a fond farewell to its NSFW content, and subsequently over half of its userbase.

This has prompted me to update the Archive and take care of a few template elements that I've been too lazy to mess with recently. It's been many years since I've had to rely on other sites to host my content, and places like AO3 and Dreamwidth that allow for full freedom of creative expression are few and far between.

I don't know where I was going with this. Updates are coming and I'm going to give bent-halo.net a facelift in 2019. That is all!
