Oh, man, some people know how to ruin a good mood!
I was checking my emails and found like, five new reviews of my stories at The Alpha Gate and got so excited! Oh, Boy, folks are reading me again! NOT.

Five SPAM reviews. All shoes.

And what's worse? The shoes were UGLEEEEEE.

*wanders off muttering dire threats against both spammers and ugly shoes designed by men who obviously have never worn heels....*

Yeah there were a couple of posts on the AG archive about spam reviews. Michelle blocked the one acct but said wont do much to stop others.

And there are some of us who have never stopped reading, re-reading, your fic. I re-read the bits of the Daniel in Atlantis wip the other day-- yes I saved it before you took it down b/c I love that trope and your writing. I'm also re-reading dolimir's TS fic.

*looks shamefaced*

I really do hope to finish that Daniel in Atlantis, I really do. I've only left readers hanging like that one other time (another story I need to finish *looks heavenward*).

*nudges Daniel muse*

I was afraid there'd probably been more spam. I know when my list was hit, it was hard. I hate spammers even though many are just trying to make a buck (not the ones who plant viruses, of course!), but spamming a list? No.

Re: *looks shamefaced*

Oh don't be all with the shame. Only 2 stories left unfinished that were shared is a hell of a record. there's a reason I don't share wip's anymore. I'll wave the pom-poms for Daniel in Atlantis anytime you need it though---I'm so in love with that trope & its proven a bit harder than you might think to find good stories in that regard.

the muses have been cruel for a lot of people esp since we stopped getting any new SG content of any kind. Alas, no great tips for helping the Daniel muse here. My little ficlet series has only helped mine marginally, and as soon as the latest installment developed actual plot my muse came to a screeching halt. Unfortunately it took my academic muse with it, my adviser is not happy.

Perhaps if we go watch more of MS in Saving Hope cause watching him wander around in a tux for weeks is so so difficult. ;-)

(I wish someone would write the story I can't because it would be too big --the one where Daniel is in charge of Atlantis expedition from the beginning)

The spammers are very annoying. And then there was the spate of email hacking--I think every one of my lists had someone get caught. I changed all my passwords & didn't write them down which meant another round of changes as I couldn't remember the damn things.
