First, before I get into the reviews, I want to thank everybody who has voted in the Blank Page Awards! We’re in a tiebreaker round now that will end on Friday, so if you could please go vote in that and help me untie the handful of ties, I would really appreciate it.
And now… the reviews! I think I set some sort of record this month. All but two of the stories I actually reviewed are different from the ones on the list I posted last month. Thanks to missing chapters, missing content and stories that just weren’t complete like I thought they were, a lot of things had to change. On the plus side, an Anthem era story I’ve been loving was finished and…
HansonFiction.com is archived again! I didn’t review any stories from there this month, but I did add a few back into my overall plan. I’ve had a few questions here about how to access those old stories, and I’m happy to say that the links I’ve provided to them do work again!
Okay. With the good news out of the way, here’s the list of stories I actually reviewed this month:
And up for review next month…
And with my reviews done for now, it’s time for me to dive back into NaNoWriMo. See you in December!
Well, it’s nothing compared to Hanson’s news today, but I couldn’t let them get in the way of my big, first of the month updates!
As always, there are new spotlights today. This month, the focus is on:
- Author: Aimster
- Story: The Bodyguard by Team Zaylor
- Website: RPS Fanfiction
I’m really excited about all of those, so hurry up and head on over here to check them out. You may notice that’s a slightly different url, and a brand new layout. Like the directory, I’ve converted the spotlights to WordPress. It’s all basically the same as before, but the author interviews are now posted like a blog, so you can click through them, viewing “previous” and “next” interviews. Other than that, the navigation is the same. So check that out!
What else is new this month? Read on to find out!

This month’s update has been a long time coming, and I’ve been really excited about finally getting it all put together for you guys. In honor of the new, as yet untitled album, I figured it was time for a new layout. I’ve made quite a few changes with this layout, but I think it’s all fairly self explanatory. In case it isn’t, here are a few of the details below the jump.

As promised, here is the rather delayed new content for January.
So, what have I got for you? Five new/old stories added to the archives! Which stories?
- Fallon by Nat
- He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not by Hayley
- Lessons of a Laundry Mat Attendant by Mel
- Regrets by Hayley
- You Irritate Me by Nat
A few of those are quite high on my list of favorites, and most are ones I’ve reviewed or featured, so I’m glad to be able to make them available to you guys again. I have several more stories saved from the recently closed AITP.org so look for these story archive updates to become a reccurring part of the new monthly content.
The directory update is still the works, and with other things I have to work on (not all website related), I’m honestly not sure if it will even be ready by February. So next month’s content may be very similar to this month’s. But hopefully you all enjoy the new reading material; even if it isn’t really new, it might be new to someone.
That’s all for this time — stay tuned for next week, when I’ll be adding the January reviews!
I know I’m a little late, but happy new year, fansons!
2013 is going to be a big year for us, I think. Interest in hanfic always seems to wane at the end of an album cycle, and this one has been no exception. I had huge, high hopes for Shout It Out, and while hanfic did pick up during that summer and fall, we’ve hit some lows lately. That said, there are still new authors cropping up and the community, small though it may be, is still great to be part of. I don’t expect this new album (which we will hopefully know the title of soon) to cause any big explosion of popularity, but I have a feeling it will still be a good year for us all.
It’s a new month, too, which means new content for you guys. First, the somewhat delayed (as usual, it seems) monthly spotlights! They are as follows:
