I think posting a few screen caps with spoiler tags would be alright, at least for me they would. (hey, I can't help it - I'm just too curious for my own good) :lol:

Oh, yeah, I keep forgetting about the spoiler tags. Whadaya think? Should I go for it, just to put poor Maartje out of her misery? :lol:

Perhaps tomorrow. I'm feeling too lazy/sick/tired/in the mood for PC-gaming to log into photobucket tonight. :tongue:

Oh, I can whittle away time with the best of them--particularly when schoolwork is involved. :lol: But I do eventually have the need to do something after awhile, even if it's fun stuff. I can't even do marathon TV watching. :lmao:

Re: Anew: A TNA Site

Just to show the site's not dead, I've posted a tiny update. It consists of one Gareth article (though my new scanner keeps making everything small, so I might have to fix it later), a link to my newest fic, and a link to Philippa's "Somewhere In Between" as part of my little TNA fic library. I hope you don't mind, Philippa. ^^

I need to redo the image galleries at some point, and later in the spring I hope to add a couple more things, but this will have to do for now.

^Funny coincidence, because I was browsing your website yesterday and then I thought that perhaps you would like to link my fic on there. So I don't mind at all, thanks ^^

Great minds... :thumb: Usually I would ask permission first, but I only had tiny window of time open up to do a proper update, so it was update now or never. If you hadn't wanted it up, I would have happily taken it down again. But I'm trying to make a little TNA fic library because TNA fic is so rare, so every addition I can find is good. I really enjoyed the story, so I hope a few other people will come across it now that it's on the site. ^^

Good to know people are browsing the site, too. I haven't updated it in awhile, and I don't know how many people are making use of it. I just do it because I've always wanted a proper website I could code myself and register with a proper domain name. But even one visitor makes me happy. :grin: Glad you're playing with it. :yes:

Re: Anew: A TNA Site

I got a lot more readers and reviewers than I expected to get, which I'm really happy about. So if a couple more people get to read it through your website that would be great!

You're right, there's so little TNA fic out there, so I think putting all of it in one place is a very good idea :grin:

Having it in with Spooks probably helped it reach a wider audience than it would have if you'd stuck in the Avengers section. But it'd be lovely if you picked up a couple of extra readers from the site, definitely. :yes:

TNA is still painfully underrepresented on the fic front, alas. Every little bit helps. Maybe if I put enough together, it'll inspire others to write some. Hey, I can dream. :lol:

Re: Anew: A TNA Site

The tiniest of tiny updates (just those two pieces of fic I posted on ff.net), but it is the one-year anniversary of me launching my site today, so I'm giving myself an indulgent pat on the back. :hyper: I've always wanted to handcode my own website, so it's been really fun to be able to create and update it and actually have people browse it. So thanks for all the encouragement, guys. ^^

Re: Anew: A TNA Site

Sorry to read you're poorly, Timeless. Get better soon.

I couldn't resist spiriting away one of your Joanna black and whites from your photo gallery and adding some colour. Bwahahahahahaha! :lol:

Image


Partial success. Trouble is, her hair at this stage was light brown/ash blonde and not the later more vibrant blonde. Because I've not got brown on my (very limited) palate it becomes a kind of ... green. :huh: Also because of the filter I give it to get the skin tone (trade secret!) it's taken away the blue of her eyes. Still, it was fun making it! :roll:

On the website I added tinted images as a distraction ... :confused:

Thanks, Dandy. It's a really bad virus, but it hits me in spurts. I'm just waiting for the end of the week. :sick:

Love the image--feel free to nick as many photos from the gallery as you like. I have them as individual files, too, if you want--that way you don't get the little "Lightbox" logo in the corner. ^^

Thanks, Becky, but, erm, I'm not sure how much more content you want--I already have hundreds of items--articles, photos, videos, scripts, comics, and pieces of fiction, etc.--up on the site, so I think you may have missed something. :lol:

Timeless A-Peel wrote:I don't know whether to talk about it a little now, or wait until I can post it on the site properly and in full. Perhaps I'm the only one who'll be excited about it, but it was a piece I had no idea existed (and actually wouldn't have caught at all if I hadn't been on ebay.co.uk because you sent me that link about that TNA script, Maartje, so I have you to thank for finding it at all). It's just a fun little oddity, but I'm inordinately pleased about it. :grin:


Happy to contribute, though I have no idea to what exactly. :lol: But if you're excited about it, I'm sure it must be something rare. Can't wait to see it!


Remember me tesing about this? It was about a year ago, which is sad, but alas that's how long it took for me to get the equipment I needed back to put things in motion. Finally, I don't have to tease anymore, and I can tell you guys about this great little rarity I picked up last year.

I have a Gareth record. A 45 single. Yes, you read that right--I have tracks of Gareth singing! :hyper:

I'm so serious. :cheer:

I've read a lot of articles on Gareth where he talked about singing and wanting to do music, but nothing ever seemed to come of it, so I figure there were no actual recordings. I'm very, very happy to be proved wrong. :grin:

There are two tracks on the single--one each side. And you know what? He sounds good. He's got a lovely voice and good range. I think both tracks are really lovely. But them I'm biased. Singing, acting, and stunts--what couldn't the man do? :hypnose:

Anyway, I've put together a little article about it, complete with pictures of the sleeve, and, of course, download links, so you can download and listen to the tracks yourself. I really hope everyone here enjoys them as much as I have. You can get them off the brand new music page:

Rock on. :thumb:

Re: Anew: A TNA Site

One site you could add to your links page is my Joanna site. Link is in my signature. You don't have to add it if you don't want to. But I just thought I'd suggest it :D
I started it in may. I currently have 56 followers on it :D
I post videos of Jo and I sometimes find some rare photos and hard-to-find photos that no one has seen on here as well

I'll keep that in mind for an update, Becky. :yes: It may be awhile before it comes up, though, as I don't have much time for site updates just now.

Re: Anew: A TNA Site

Timeless, I've just noticed your post about the Gareth Hunt record. I had no idea about this recording at all. It's actually not a bad tune. It could certainly have given David Soul a run for it's money in the UK charts (who had a brief but sucessful pop career in 1976/77). What a great find.
