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!

Streamlining

13 Mar 2018 12:38 PM  

In addition to continuing the importation process of all my old fics, I'm also working on tidying up some of the site templates and categories, making things a bit easier to read and navigate and everything. I'm also going to be working on some new skins here soon (like this new default I made, based on AO3's appearance), including an option that'll be easier on the eyes. Keep an eye out for it. (Ha, y'see what I did there? ...jeez I have no life.)

More Marvel Managing

07 Dec 2017 05:04 PM  

I added subcategories to the main Marvel category, as well as did a little bit of cleanup and organizing with the Genres, Warnings, and Characters. I've got a couple new stories from AO3 to post here, so stay tuned for those. Also, I'm still working on bringing back some of my old super-explicit works. They'll be here whenever as soon as I go into the back-end of my server and get those values restored to my database.

Fandom Fusion

21 Mar 2017 09:00 AM  

You might have noticed the "Ghost Rider" category has disappeared. Fear not. I consolidated all Marvel-related fanfiction into a new category called "Marvel", where you'll be able to find my Ghost Rider fics as well as stories from the X-Men universe and MCU's Captain America. This ought to make browsing a little easier. Maybe. I don't know. I just wanted to have a Marvel category, I guess. I was definitely overdue for one.

New Years Resolutions

17 Feb 2017 09:09 AM  

So it's 2017 now and I've decided to restore some of the old x-rated fanfics I either put in storage or removed last time I updated. (I'm still a good person, don't judge me on the filth I write.) I'll be going into my database tables and re-installing these stories over the course of however long it takes me. Might be anything from hours to weeks, depending on any issues I might encounter. Nevertheless, I hope the addition of these horrific stories will go largely unnoticed and not tarnish any good impressions I've made upon you, Dear Reader.

Rearranging

16 Jun 2016 07:08 AM  

I've been enjoying a return to the Gundam Wing fandom recently and been doing a lot of writing, enough to justify resurrecting the category here at the archive. While I was messing around on the backend, I figured I needed to toss my Metalocalypse works into the Other Fandoms category since I only had 4 works in it. I try to keep things neat around here if I can. So if you're looking for Dethklok fics, don't panic, just head to Other Fandoms and you'll find them.

Hard at Play

02 Mar 2016 06:12 AM  

Got a couple new skins designed (more will be on the way soon), plus an update on a moldy (but still golden) oldie from my Gundam Wing fandom days. It is currently the oldest fic of mine (coming up on 16 years--old enough to drive on its own) that is still a work in progress. Maybe this time around I'll finally finish it instead of keeping readers hanging on for another 8 years.

New skins on the way

29 Jan 2016 02:52 PM  

Greetings, readers! I'm working on developing a few different skins in an effort to help improve legibility and decrease eye strain (also, writing CSS relaxes me and I like to change things up every now and then). Right now I've got just this galaxy theme, but more will be forthcoming. I'll be putting up the skin-change option box pretty soon, too. In the meantime, just sit back and enjoy the stars.

Grand Re-opening

25 Sep 2015 09:27 AM  

It's been a long time coming, but I finally got around to updating my fiction software and developing a new skin. Not only is this new layout more streamlined and navigable, but it's also formatted to look good on any size screen, tablet or smartphone--in other words, it's gone mobile! There may still be a code or two that needs tweaking, so if you come across something weird, just contact me and let me know in case I missed it!

Also, as you may have noticed, there aren't as many fics as there was; I did some much-needed pruning and got rid of a lot of old, embarrassing, and downright awful fics that really had no business being in public. I hope to fill the void with lots of good, quality works and eventually hit my million-wordcount mark again. So stay tuned for more fics coming soon!
