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

And all he can think of is that one time in second year when she got bit by one of Sprout’s stupid plants and how she had cried and how he had come after class and shred the stupid thing to pieces with a pair of garden shears.
All he can think of is how she reads books at dinner with her fork constantly missing her mouth, and how she’s looking at him right now, like she’s going to hug him or kiss him or shake him until he’s better again.
All he can think of is that his Mum had always liked Lily, because she has spirit and she's kind and she had kicked James so hard when he had whistled at her at the train station last year, and his Mum had laughed and laughed.
