4th February: This has been a long time coming, but I just wanted to let you all know that I'll be shifting my fanfic posting entirely to AO3 and won't be posting them here any more. You can find the link to my AO3 account here (and at the bottom of my journal): archiveofourown.org/users/SamC…
It's a bit of a shame to give up posting them on dA after so many years, but the difference in views and feedback between AO3 and here just isn't comparable. Which makes sense, given that AO3 is specifically for fanfics, whereas dA doesn't lend itself to them as much. Since I have less time these days due to increased hours at work and wanting to focus more on creating fan content, it makes sense to me to cut down my posting to places where it gets more notice.
I'll still be posting fan art here on dA, that won't change, it's just fanfics that are going. Though if you follow me on tumblr then I'll continue to post links to my AO3 submissions there as well.
If you do want to follow me on AO3 then what I aim to post there are more chapters of my two Free! fanfics, Trail Mix (a zombie AU featuring SouMako and others) and Moves Across the Land (a fic where Makoto died a few years post-ES and his friends are now each receiving letters he wrote to them), as well as more chapters of my Layton fanfic, Grasping Liquid (a massive, sprawling mess of Black Raven headcanons). I also have a MakoHaru oneshot that I'll be posting for a Valentines event. As well as that, I may go back through some of my older fanfics and clean them up to repost on AO3 too.
Thank you for sticking with me and I hope that if you do enjoy my writing that the move to AO3 won't be too much of a hassle.
