* My "Shameless and Yet Useful Hinting for Gift-Fic" post can be found here (and honestly, everybody should have some version of this!!)

You don't have to ask to friend or defriend my journal, or to link to anything I post, or to crit my stuff, or to translate my fic, or to make sequels/podfics/fanart/remixes/whatever based on it, etc. As long as credit is given, you don't need my permission.*

I would, however, love it if you'd let me know if you post a translation/sequel/podfic/fanart related to something I've written so that I can post a link on my own journals/website.

About Writing:

"Once you've written something it's not yours any longer: it belongs to other people, and they all have opinions about it, and every single one of those opinions is as correct as that of the author - more so, perhaps. Because those people have read the work as something perfectly new, and, barring amnesia, an author is never going to be able to do that. There will be too many ghost-versions of the story in the way, and besides, the author cannot read it for the first time, wondering what happens next, comparing it to other things that he or she has read."

-(Neil Gaiman, in his Introduction to The Sandman Papers: An Exploration of the Sandman Mythology , ed. Joe Sanders)
