Give Me ALL of the Fic

Going through one of my periodic fandom-trauma induced download sprees. RPF fandoms in particular give me angst sometimes, guys. I just get superafraid of logging on and everything being GONE. Because, you know, SOMETIMES IT IS.

So I am currently downloading the shit out of everything/everyone I've ever liked in hockey RPF.

Relatedly, I need so much more Sid/Geno in my life. Just re-read Highway Unicorn and I love it/them SO FUCKING MUCH.

I just had someone come request this fic on my tumblr, which happens amazingly often, and I got curious and did a google search and found this thread.

Oops, accidentally hit post. ANYWAY. I pulled the fic almost a week after I posted it because I was reading back through it and realized that it is objectively terrible and under-edited. I should have never put it up.

I have, however, recently considered editing it and putting it back up in pieces. And it does mean a lot to know people are still looking for it, I had no idea it was so well liked, as at the time I got very little positive feedback. So, thank you for the kind words. :)

I'm sorry you felt the story wasn't well-received - I'm sure I left kudos but may not have commented, as I tend to not leave comments unless I can think of something more to say than "I liked this"

while I can be picky and bitchy about bad writing, I admit that I overlook stuff if the story really grabs me - and this one did. I remember it as being somewhat OTT, though that's often a feature of the magical realism genre; overall it left me with a very positive impression (and my friend Rachel also enjoyed it enough to want to reread it) - so if you do decide to go back and re-edit and post it again, I can guarantee you'll make at least the two of us happy (and it sounds like others as well).

You're very kind :D

Yeah. realizing you accidentally wrote badfic is kind of a shock. I hadn't intended it at the time, but I've started to embrace it as such. I happen to be one of those for whom badfic is a comfort place, I adore the ridiculous and over the top and the endless facepalming, but the total inability to stop reading. Heh. And now that the shock has worn off I'm kind of glad I did it and if I get around to it I will most certainly embrace and identify it as such.
