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

- EnigmaEnigma (PG-13)
I sit. I think. I itch. That's what a typical day in the purgatory I call Azkaban consist of. Mainly, though, I think. My friends, enemies, lovers, family, and life all come rushing back as I try to remember where it all went wrong. I accidentally stumbled onto where it all went right, so I might as well tell you. ... by MasqueradeMadness
"You come out," he started, still laughing, "with your little ransom notes and potent fudge and I tell myself, 'James, don't listen to her. Don't give in to her'. I say it over and over again and keep telling myself that you're full of rubbish and none of it matters. And yet... and yet where do I find myself half-hour later?" He shook his head, as if he himself couldn't quite believe it. "Down in the common room," he finished disbelievingly. "Down in the common room laughing my arse off." Then, as if to prove his point, he started howling like a loon again. "You're good," he managed to repeat through his laughter. "You're good."
