I should've posted this earlier, it's a link to an LJ post in the boy_touching (didn't like my html) comm to request a story called King of Cats. I've read it, it's good. Check it out.

I'm trying to lure the author (Blake) over here, we'll see if she responds to feedback.

Afternoon all! *beats back tumbleweeds and tears down the cobwebs*

So, this is what I meant when I said it would be handy if someone else could co-moderate/cheerlead this comm, on account of how I go off-grid from time to time due to health issues. (And other things, but they're all very boring, so I won't drone on ;) )

Long story short: I'm back, and hopefully we can get things moving again around here. Massive and sticky thank yous to those who have kept posting and commenting while I've been dead not terribly with it. This will happen again at some point so - I'll say it once more - anyone who would like to take on a mod position, please shout. You won't have to do anything awful. So far (touch wood) we've avoided spam plagues, trolls, drama llamas and the other darknesses of teh internetz, so it's really not onerous.

Right. Now, who brought cookies?
