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

So maybe it wasn’t a letter. Two sentences didn’t constitute a letter. He’d written her notes longer than that. Granted, the notes had usually been directed at how boring a lecture was, a plead for the answer to number seventeen, how crooked Snape’s nose was today in comparison to yesterday, that sort of thing. But the contents of this… sheet of writing, it was… normal. Which wasn’t at all normal, when James Potter was involved. He wouldn’t write to her for no reason other than to check in on how she was doing; he always had an agenda, an ulterior motive, if even so simple as just to annoy her.
It just seemed so nice. And unprompted.
