Uh, so. *sheepish grin* Our spambot woes are far from over, it seems :(

I'm really, really sorry for this outage, guys. My friend and tech wiz kid DNA finally managed to get the site back up today, and he's trying his damnedest to keep the evil spambots at bay, but we're totally depending on him.

However, I'm happy to report that server-wise, we're totally on the up-and-up—paid up in full until 2014 at least! So don't worry: even if these pesky spambots manage to overrun us again, we'll be back! And your data won't be lost! :D

(You should always back up your fics, though! Incidentally, if you want an invite to the brilliant Archive of Our Own to mirror your stuff there, which I highly recommend, email me and I'll hook you up!)

Hey, guys! As you probably noticed, we had some trouble with Google these past few weeks—spambots hacked into some UR pages and added malicious code to them. Google spotted that when crawling our website and flagged UR for review; but now all the code is clean again, and Google gave us the all-clear, so yay!

Welcome back, UR! :D

Random quote

    Peter makes a noise and approaches Baby from behind the couch, careful to stay away from Sirius’ insisting and Remus’ proffering and my despondence. He dips his little pudgy chin down and puts three thick fingers on her hair. “Lily,” he says in a soft voice, “won’t you eat the nice fruit? We nicked it just for you. We know you like it. It’s not even in season and it’s from somewhere far away. James picked it out only for you, I promise.”

    But she doesn’t eat, even though it’s especially for her, even though it’s an escapist fruit with fresh seeds and an air of the Caribbean even in its off-season. Sirius sulks off, disgusted, and comes to stand by me while Peter continues to stroke her hair and Baby stares off into her own head. He presses a gob of ruined, dripping papaya into my fist and stands, shoulders near mine, breathing unevenly. We watch her, we watch Peter. Remus is still on his knees, but has his head bowed, and we’re not sure if he’s praying or crying like a girl or just resting his eyes. With Remus Lupin, you never know, not even after all of these years.
