This is a bit of an odd request, but I know I can count on you guys not to think I'm too weird, right?

Okay, so who remembers a few years ago (2008 to be precise) when there was a, probably ill-conceived, attempt to create a literary magazine style anthology for SPN fandom known as "No Stairway"?

Fandom ... really didn't take it well. There was one issue published and then no more was heard from No Stairway.

If you remember it, did you make a post commenting on it? Positive, negative, neutral, doesn't matter. And/or do you happen to have any links lurking in your bookmarks of other people who made public posts commenting on it. I've managed to turn up a few posts with some judicious googling, but not enough for my purposes.

What are my purposes, you ask? Well, I'm in the midst of writing my masters thesis right now, and the subject is, you guessed it, fandom. Basically, what I'm looking at is how we deal with things when there's conflict and trying to perhaps come up with why we, as a lumpy, not-at-all-unified community respond to certain things in certain ways. i.e. what do we value as a community of writers/creators/crazy fangirls that meant we (collective we) did not hop on board with the idea of an anthology?

Reassurances! I won't be using anyone's LJ names. I may quote selectively from the entries, but the only people who are likely to ever read this are my professors, who I suspect have better things to do than track down fangirls by googling random quotes.

Anyway, if you recall any such entries, I would be FOREVER in your debt if you shared them. Thank you! (For reference, any such entries would most likely have occurred between January and June 2008.)
I'm a horrible procrastinator, but I'm trying to get things back in order on my journal from waaaaay back when I locked down in November. The issues that led me to lock down are no longer a problem, but I've found I'm more comfortable with locking many of my entries, especially those that deal with RL.

So, I'm going to cut all the people who I added solely for the purpose of reading fic during that time. It's nothing against anyone, but we really don't know each other or talk, and it makes me kind of uncomfortable to have a bunch of people who are essentially strangers reading my personal entries. Honestly, I assume that you're only here for the fic, and that's totally fine. The stories that are still housed here are public, so you'll be able to read them. If I ever get around to moving them over, I'll let you know.

All other fic, past, present, and future, lives at [ profile] ifshehadwings. I may mention fic over here, but it's far from guaranteed, so please do watch the comm if you want to keep up with my writing. Thanks!

ETA: To the best of my knowledge, I'm not cutting anyone who has actually talked to me outside of leaving a comment on fic. If you think there's been a mistake, let me know!
