August 26, 2014 - Alright, so I'm going to make this offer, that may not turn out to be very popular, but I want to try it anyway. Here it is. *Deep Breath* Okay. Due to fanfiction.net's (and choice others) shitty rules, I find it increasingly difficult to post stories the way I want them to. Whether they consist of naughty words, a visual aid for a character (pictures), or so much as a stupid link, I can't do that on those websites.
I can, however, do that here. And I can do that for each and every one of you.
This is a test - A Beta, if you will - but for a time, I will be accepting Harry Potter fanfictions to host on rihaansfics.com, or at the very least, a subsection of this site, for nothing.
This is an archive deal only, for now. Once you email your story, or a chapter of it, to email@example.com, Going back to edit will be very difficult. It's a very large setback, I know, but it is the only setback that comes to mind with this idea.
I will not have the largest HP database in the world, but there is a particular following here, and an archive on one of the few HP fanfic fansites left that seems to be doing well is exactly what this community needs.
I find myself with a very large bandwidth, and a domain paid off for the next ten years. Why not do something productive with it? It's better than anything neoYahoo! Groups can think of anyway.
I'll type up the rules and regulations, whatever few there are, and post it here, but if you're interested, send me an email.
Name: Some name I made up, Rihaan Shimomura. Occasionally known across the net

you use facebook, you'll find my real name.
