Hey Astro!  Does it help to know that I have the epi to Heirs and Heirlooms, so the story is finished even if the epi hasn't posted?  2amlovesick is proving to be very reliable.
Just how much Robporn would I have to send for you to ship that over my way? >:D I adore that story, and 2amlovesick is just the sweetest. Please tell me it's posting this weekend!

Ella, how long after an update do I have to keep the old version of calibre in my downloads?  Is it safe to delete them as soon as I have the new copy?  I am terrified to get rid of them and loose the program, but I will end up with loads if not. I am not talking about the actual library files just the windows installer package ???

I've learned to tolerate SPaG errors in fanfics, although that took me awhile.  But it's nice if I like the characters and care about what happens to them.  I haven't reached that point yet in this story for most of the characters.  I haven't given up yet.  At some point I will, and then I'll just skim to get the gist of what's going on.  That's what I do since I can't flounce.  I don't have panic attacks like Astro does over WIPs, but I am physically incapable of flouncing.

I find I can tolerate the SPaG errors much more when I like the story.  Otherwise, I um put it aside for later. 

Can you do WIPs?  Maybe it will be more readable if you think of it as a WIP - read a chapter every other day & read chapters of something else in between?  It's not flouncing.  It's just delaying it.  I wonder if some stories are better as WIPs just because they are annoying all at once?  And that's why they have such good reviews?

I will only read a WIP if I am totally sucked in and have to look. I am far too impatient to wait for the updates.  Drives me crazy.  I also have the dreaded fear of the incomplete/abandoned.  There are too many to count. I have several WIP's I am waiting on at the moment, and I can't/won't abandon them cos they are too good, if there were more of a similar pairing I would not be as bothered, but the waiting is driving me nuts.

You can delete them all.  I've never gone back to an old version.

Though you can probably keep the most current version just in case.

Um, Season 10? who won that?

I'm never really happy with those shows.  But then I can't taste the food ;D

Kristen. Even tho I agree that the way she left the show was unfair it is more unfair to have someone from last chance kitchen win it. Brooke, the runner up, had the most wins during the show.

:(

I only saw part of that episode but I agree with you. Brooke should have won.

Yer, a lot of us have had a touch of brain fever after seeing the Kellan pics! ;)
I think I may actually have some brain damage. I nearly choked to death on my tea from the first batch and the I saw the other one.

The scrap of fabric one and I totally forgot how to breathe. :o  I think we could do with more Kellan decoration around here.  :13:

I agree with you about wips. It's the best way to read a story full of angst.

Maybe you should just send me some Robporn and see if it works?  I'm sure 2amlovesick will post this weekend.  She's good like that.  I have to rush to keep up with her, cuz she'll post whether I've sent my comments or not!  She's been great to work with, though.  Since I came in late, I still have to go back and read most of the story.  Since I tend to cheat and read the end of a story (if it's not a WIP) about halfway through, it won't bother me to read the end before I read the rest.  Thank goodness!

I usually have a mix of completed stories and WIPs that I'm reading.  Some stories should only be read as WIPs (like Dusty) because they're too intense otherwise, (or they have too many lemons if read all at once).  I can think of a bunch of stories that should be read one chapter at a time with other stories in between (The Man who Can't Be Moved, Help Wanted, Retail Therapy, I could go on and on).  I think fanfic is the high tech version of The Strand magazine.  Of course, with Quiet Storm, it might be easier to take their whining if I treated it as a WIP.  I'm reading it on my phone, so it might take me all day to read one chapter since I only read when I have to wait on something or someone, but still...(*whining*)

Don't worry, I'm reading other stories at the same time, and could get distracted by new recommendations...

I recently finished reading (and re-reading in come cases) the stories by Spanglemaker9.  I love her stuff.  The Wedding Party is still one of my very favorite stories!

I'll let you know if the characters grow on me.  Since I am incapable of flouncing.
That would be brilliant hun.  :-*
I've heard loads of good stuff about it but I keep putting of reading it though.  :D

Hello lovely (and chronically chatty) ladies!

I haven't read Quiet Storm, I think I read one chapter and decided it wasn't for me. I read We Could Run by CaraNo after it completed yesterday but I wasn't that impressed. Edward was really unlikable and I couldn't sympathise with him.
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
I actually hoped for a non-HEA (and coming from me, that's huge!) just because I didn't want to see Bella with him. Definitely won't be reading it again.
I was gonna read WCR after I finish my Kincnort3 kick.   :)
I read the first 2 chapters when it was WIP and thought I would wait until it was complete but don't think I will now.

I used to not flounce, but I flounce fics all the time now. If it's badly written or doesn't grab my interest, I give it the flick. There's just too many fics out there to waste valuable reading time on bad fics (or books!).

Matron! Your avi!!!

It doesn't really help - my WIPhobia is quite severe!

Too many times I have seen "Epi up next...already written..." and then...nothing.

I'll wait for the "Complete" button to be pressed. Thanks anyway!

Ella, could you perhaps change the subject line  in some of these recent posts about Calibre to say Calibre Info (or something) so that when I one day convert to Calibre (with my 5000+ fics), I can do a search for all of your wonderful tips?

Pleeeeeease?  :-*
