See my Ficly profile:

I’m an Arts/Law student living in Australia. I’m passionate about progress, science, duty and humanity.

This is a work of non-ficly-tion. Like a tenant who finds the locks changed on his return to the house he lived in for years, I came back to Ficly and couldn't get in. Last contribution, nine months ago. A gay pirate scene with a massive innuendo.

I blush.

But it stirs me to find Ficly revived, even if the furnishings are a little brutalist for the time being. And the whole experience - death and revival - is a vindication of free and open licensing. Could Ficly have lived if the Ficlets remained the corporate property of AOL? Could Ficlatte be born if we had to ask each author's permission for each ficly to be preserved? I doubt it.

To openness, and to a community that will not be quashed. May we write another thirty thousand stories (and not a few of them about my darling Jenny Everywhere).

Vale Ficly.


No sequels yet. Why not write one?

Welcome welcome welcome.

The fabulousness of the Creative Commons Licence is not to be underestimated. As soon as Kevin releases the ficly database, I will see what I can do to import all of the stories and comments from there. That should give us a good sense of continuity and allow us to sequel the stories that we wrote over there. He has warned me that doing so will be a right royal pain, so I'm not going to promise anything other than that I will try.

Hi Sanglorian.

I know it's been 3 months, but the hello still stands.

I still dream of a day we all meet and have a little convention somewhere..Ficlets, Ficly, and Ficlatté

Inspired by (sequel to):

Regrets, I've had a few.

I love a bit of Sinatra, and this line from My Way comes to mind right now…
