We are getting quite a bit of traffic at various times, though.

Well that is a lot. It's usually slash that accounts for it, but if it's not that, I don't really know. Elfscribe mentioned something similar.

@spiced. yes, a random chapter with 30 times more reads than the rest.

@Alpha: I sometimes re-read single chapters of your stories sometimes, too. Especially those that really stayed in my mind, such as "Red Fang" in Arcane Land for example.

Thank a lot, Quantum! And I totally agree with Spiced. The naughty chapters have nearly double the read counts of the others. Im taking that as a sign to write more of these. ^^

We can't please every-one, Glorfindel! :) The chapters with slash and incest get more hits on mine than anything else apart from the first chapter - re-reads, I expect.

I get good reads on the first six to eight chapters and then they tail off - then the read count is consistent after that. Maybe my stories are too long.

@Alpha - what's the matter? have you got huge read counts on certain chapters and not on others?

New member cathy is a spambot. I deleted the reviews, and sent the bio link to Esteliel.

The thing is that it is not the first chapter. it is totally inconsistent with the normal pattern of things

Refresh the Shoutbox

It is the mark of a good fairy-story, of the higher or more complete kind, that however wild its events, however fantastic or terrible the adventures, it can give to child or man that hears it, when the turn comes, a catch of the breath, a beat and lifting of the heart, near to (or indeed accompanied by) tears, as keen as that given by any form of literary art, and having a peculiar quality.
J.R.R. Tolkien, On Fairy-Stories

Welcome to Faerie, an archive for Tolkien fanfiction. We welcome all sorts of stories, poetry and non-fiction writing, regardless of genre, rating or pairing.

The Closure of HASA

As some of you may know, the long-running Henneth Annun Story Archive will be closing at the end of the year. Please read the full article on HASA here.

This is very sad news. If any-one who reads this knows authors who post at HASA, or who used to and then left the fandom, perhaps you could try to let them know? They may wish to save their stories, even though they are no longer in the Tolkien fandom.

If you have stories and reviews on HASA, please feel free to post them on Faerie, and upload reviews if you wish. Reviews can never be replaced.

This is a good time to be grateful to the owner-admins of sites like HASA, SWG, MPTT, and of course, Faerie, who build these wonderful archives.

Spam Reviews

Hi every-one.
There has been a couple more spam reviews, this time to an anonymous account that I cannot trace back. If you get any of these spam reviews, could you, if you have time, check the name of the spammer. If it is a clickable link, it will go back to the spammers bio page, where it will show how many spam reviews they have posted. If there are a few could you let me know? The last time we got spam-bombed, I kept the spammers bio page open and just kept clicking on their spam reviews and deleting them. I can't do this if the spammer is anonymous, unfortunately, but you can still delete their reviews (or I will if you wish). Many thanks.

Use of Images

Hello all, People have asked about the use of images before, but ages ago, so I thought it should be addressed again, because we have new members coming in.

People like to use images in their stories (including me). But there are a couple of rules that really should be followed for the benefit of every member.

1). Please use images only in the space you control
Story notes, content, chapter notes, or your bio page can all be used. Please don't post images on public space; images load more slowly than text, and can impact on readership and layout.

2. Use of art not your own.
If you use art which is not yours, please link to the artist under the image. This is only fair. Artists spend a lot of time on their work, and we need to acknowledge that and them. I hope it leads to greater views for them, commissions, sales, support etc. If you can't find the source, then try where you can drag a picture to search.

Many thanks. :)
