In addition to the 80 or so file versions of Firefly River/Jayne fanfics I have to share (including all the works of [profile] mik109 and [profile] thefriskyfire/The Frisky Firelily which had been deleted from and two 'lost' works of [profile] gem588, "Stand or Fall" and "Better Than Gold"), I also want to remind anyone who's been searching that I have file copies of the fics of a much-beloved Lecter-fic author, Green Jewels.

I copied all Green Jewels' stories (the ones not found on other sites, anyway) into documents before she took them down back in 2012.

I wrote to her when I noticed that "Taking Liberties" had disappeared from, and she told me she was taking them ALL down, so I had warning even before she posted a warning to everyone in place of a final update on "Skin Game". I had time to copy not only every chapter of "Skin Game", but also selections of the more meaty discussions in the many, MANY reviews people had left over the years she was writing it.

"Against Her Will" (an AU taking off from the ending of the film "Hannibal") is the only other fic of Green Jewels' that I copied down because it didn't seem to be available on any other site. The others I made copies of were 'just in case'.

"Taking Liberties" (the prequel to "Skin Game") is still available on another site:, as are a number of other shorter works of hers ( :)

Since the website went down (sometime in 2015, though it'd been wonky for some years before that), those of us who occasionally enjoy reading some River/Jayne Firefly fic have not had access to the lists of and links to award-winning and nominated fics that we used to find there.

Because I'm just that obsessive (and hate to lose any more fandom history of any kind), I've been working to piece together the "Blue Sun Fandom Awards", "Best of Rayne", and "Pretty Deadly Awards" lists -- with the last one being the toughest, since we apparently relied entirely on the website to preserve that info and didn't post complete (or even near-complete or partial) lists anywhere else at the time.

The information and links I've been able to acquire over the past couple of weeks are now posted on my LJ under this tag:

Everything that contains my far-from-complete and way-too-spotty information about the "Pretty Deadly Awards" (2007-2010) can be found here:

Same goes for the results of the "Best of Rayne" awards (2005-2007):

And for the "Rayne-adjacent" portions of the "Blue Sun Fandom Awards" (2004-2005):

I have yet to set up individual tags for the actual award categories, but here's how they work out in terms of numbered posts:

If ANYONE reading this was nominated for a "Pretty Deadly Award" for any year other than 2008 (the only year's ballot I was able to retrieve), please, please, pretty please let me know so I can improve the database I've been trying to patch together.

I'd especially like to have an idea of the nominees for the 2011 PDAs, since the results from that year were invalidated at the request of the one author who won every award that year due to an overly-enthusiastic friend who nominated her fics and repeatedly voted for them all regardless of category.

I'm also still missing the 2010 winners in the best song-fic, best Rayne kiss, and best Jayne-centric categories, as well as almost all the nominees in every category.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

Just in case I forgot to include this information in the entry before last, out of all those hours and hours of downloaded "F" fandom fanfics from in years past, I saved and am willing to share my file copies of 67 stories by The Frisky Firelily and 11 stories by mik109.

The [profile] mik109 fics I have saved are: "She's Not Normal" [incomplete], "A Solid Foundation", "Babysittin'", "Choices", "Deal", "Her Airlock", "Hostage", "Not Looking", "Not Worth the Trouble", "Slinky", and "Spotter".

Thanks to friendly folks on the Rayne_Shippers LJ community, I already had text files of [profile] gem588's no-longer-available (since the crashing of the "Forecast: Rayne" website years ago) fics "Stand or Fall" and "Better Than Gold".

If you're a Rayne-friendly sort of Browncoat and want to read or re-read any of these fics, just let me know and I'll email a file copy to you.

A new friend over on the Rayne_Shippers LJ community gave me a link to chase down, in case I wanted to work on trying to recover some 'Firefly' fanfics that have been removed from and even from LJ:

Fair warning: the files are arranged alphabetically by category/fandom, and after that by author, and in order to get 80 deleted 'Firefly' fics, I had to wait over an hour for the massive "F" zip file to download onto my laptop, and then it took around 18 hours to extract all the files in that zip file so I could find the 'Firefly' ones. I finally wised up and cancelled the extraction process before it got to 'Full Metal Alchemist' stories, since I was only going to delete those anyway, and then deleted all the fics that preceded and followed 'Firefly', in order not to take up so much space on my computer.

The deleted fics I was looking for and was able to find (there were many that were deleted prior to 2013-15 when these files were grabbed) were written by [profile] mik109 and [profile] thefriskyfire, but if you're interested in missing fics from other fandoms, it might be worth your while to take the time to download and unpack a mega zip file or two. :)
