F-Lock: Most of my writing is f-locked. Sort of like a community of my own and access is members-only.

The main reason for that was that over the time, I have simply gotten uncomfortable with posting some of my writing publicly. It was less the 'I don't want to share it anymore' but more of the 'I don't want it out in the open anymore, and only want to share it with a particular audience' kind of sentiment. And while I was lying awake one night, the simplest of thoughts struck me. It might seem really silly to some people, but I lay there thinking about this and that reason until it occurred to me... Nobody is forcing me to post anything publicly in the first place.

That is why LJ has options for f-locked entries and private entries. If I want my writing to be public, I post it openly in my LJ and to communities and share it with everybody. If I want to share my writing with only a group of people, that's what f-lock and custom lock is for. If I want to post only for myself I set it to private and if I don't want to post my writing at all, I just don't post it. And there is no need to justify my choices about what I decide to share with whom to anybody; there is no need to make mountains out of molehills and there is no need for blowing this out of proportions and creating any unnecessary drama over it.

Yes, sometimes it's just that simple *laughs* Some of my writing, I will be posting publicly as I ever did. But some of my writing will be locked down now; you can think of it as some sort of my own little community and entry is members only. People who want in will join, people who don't will just keep reading the things that are open to everybody.

Part of the reason is that I don't want some of my writing that is more... personal to be out there in the open anymore, but another part of it is just that public blogging comes with a certain amount of pressure and different kinds of drawbacks - and in view of all the changes happening in my life and in my personality, I don't need any more exposure to that pressure and those drawbacks than I really want to. I'll still be writing one-shots and shorter stories for everybody to enjoy, so if you're not on my f-list and don't really care about my locked stories you will still be able to read what writing of mine is posted publicly and to communities. However if you want to read some of my more private pieces, you'd have to ask me to add you.

Please bear in mind that if you join and remain perpetually silent/inactive, your membership will eventually be revoked again after a couple of months when I go about checking through my f-list. So don't join unless you're certain that you'd want to take the time and make yourself known (ergo leave a comment) every once in a while, otherwise you can simply read and enjoy my publicly shared stuff.

Can I claim for letter 'L' with YunHo x Jaejoong as the pairing??
Long time since our last talk, right? Sorry for being MIA all these time. But now that I almost get permission for maternity issue, I think I'll have some time to catch up with your stories again. Haha, time for me to prepare everything that I might need to welcome my first child, still can't believe I'll be a mother soon.
I missed talking to you, Dear. *hugs
Kate, Kathrin, Katjagazerock4eva on April 6th, 2014 04:17 pm (UTC)
Sure thing! Since you didn't name any particular title, is it okay if I come up with my own? *laughs* I think 'limerence' could fit those two just nicely.

Indeed, it's been a while =3 But well, we all sometimes get busy with life, the important thing is that we don't forget about other things and thus, I'm glad you haven't forgotten me or my Muses. We'll definitely be happy to see you around ^_^

Congrats again on soon-to-be-motherhood! I can imagine it's very exciting, and I'm sure you'll do great. All the best to you and your baby <3

Likewise! *squishes*

Hey! I'm a silent reader, sorry ;A; but I love ADF, one of the best fics I've read tbh. The link for Phoenix won't work though, I think I have you as a friend, I'm not sure though? I'm still not used to live journal haha
Kate, Kathrin, Katjagazerock4eva on April 6th, 2014 04:19 pm (UTC)
Hi~! Happy to hear from you, and glad you're enjoying ADF so far =3

The link for Phoenix is f-locked, and you can't see f-locked entries by simply adding me, I actually have to add you back - that's why it doesn't work. I did add you tho, so you should be able to access the entries now.

Enjoy, and I hope to see ya round ^_^

Aw, thank you, m'dear~ That's always nice to hear <3!

My travels were safe ones indeed, there and back again *laughs*

Oh, I've been away for some time and when I return I find that Phoenix is being re-uploaded, I can't wait to read it all over again! And although my job does not leave me much free time, I'll try to comment more often ;)
Kate, Kathrin, Katjagazerock4eva on April 11th, 2014 03:49 pm (UTC)
Aye, I'm finally getting to re-upload some of my older stuff; been meaning to do that for ages *laughs* And Phoenix just happens to be first.

Ah, yes. I've been quite busy the past few weeks, too, but well, I do try to spare some time here and there to manage my LJ. I'll be happy to see ya round =3

Thanks for commenting!

Hi~! Sorry it took me so long to get to your message *laughs* Been a busy couple days here.

I've added you back, and I'll be uploading more Phoenix chapters today, so I hope you'll enjoy the read <3!
Yuithe_rnr on April 11th, 2014 05:47 pm (UTC)
Gosh, can't believe you're re-uploading this!! My first fanfic from you! An awesome one nonetheless.. Gonna read it again when i have time and the updates on ADF! I think i have been missing out too much.. orz But i'm glad you are still updating and thanks so much for that!

It's kinda been long since i comment as well, i'm so sorry about it.. ):

Hope you have been well and had a great time in Moscow!! :) Cheers~
Kate, Kathrin, Katjagazerock4eva on October 7th, 2014 02:47 pm (UTC)
Late reply is late, but nevertheless!

I'm glad the re-upload of this brings back good memories not only for myself. Phoenix has been quite the milestone in my writing, so I'm happy to be reupping it, even if said reupping took an unplanned break <.<;

I will continue with the upload sometime soon, and I'm happy you enjoy it! You're more than welcome, and hey, it's always better late than never, no matter if it's commenting or replying *laughs*

And oh, I did have a great time in Moscow, thanks!

Hi ~

I was your friend before you delete your first journal, I didn't comment on each chapter, but I talked to you some times ^^

I was wondering if you can add me again. I have to say, you're one of my favourite writer. I didn't read fanfic in a long while, but I see you're posting Phoenix and it was my favourite fic. Seriously, I love it so much ! The feelings are so beautifuly transcribed, when I read it, I can read it for hours. I smile and nearly cry at some chapters, but I enjoy so much be captivate like that by a story ^^"

Can you add me back ? I would really like to read it again ! I would also like to read A Demon's Fate when I'll get time ^^

Have a good day !

I must say I don't remember your username and I usually have good memory when it comes to that *laughs* We must've indeed not talked often.

I'm very happy to hear you enjoyed Phoenix back then and that you remembered it all this time through; I'm glad you found my journal again =3 It's only reuploaded to chapter 10 so far, but I'm positive all the other chapters will be up here soon enough. I hope you'll have fun re-reading!

I've added you back, and I'll certainly be happy to see ya round. Thanks for your support and appreciation <3!

If you are into B.A.P, you would make me happy with Daehyun x Youngjae for the one-shot alphabet.^_^ As for the title, maybe "obstinacy". But if you have another idea, that would be ok, too^^
Kate, Kathrin, Katjagazerock4eva on October 7th, 2014 07:55 pm (UTC)
Sorry, late reply!

I do listen to B.A.P but I'm not really familiar with the group and the members themselves. I'll give this one a thought and keep the letter "O" for ya if you're still interested, that is *laughs*

Thank you for the suggestion still <3!

Ich glaube ich fang an zu nerven, aber ich hab grade bemrkt,dass ich deine storys nicht mehr lesen kann. hatte ziemlich lange keine zeit groß hier zu sein- wäre es vielleicht möglich die wieder lesen zu dürfen?
alle guten dinge sind drei,sagt man ja ... vielleicht schaff ich es ja diesmal regelmäßiger online zu kommen x_x

Kate, Kathrin, Katjagazerock4eva on October 7th, 2014 07:54 pm (UTC)
Hi! Tut mir Leid, dass die Antwort so spät kommt, war wegen ein paar persönlichen Problemen und Problemchen die letzten Monate MIA.

Falls du immer noch Interesse daran hast, meine Geschichten zu lesen, ich hab dich geadded und du solltest in der Lage sein, alles, was bei mir so momentan im Archiv ist, zu lesen ^_^

Ich erinner mich zwar an dich, aber eher vaage und da ich seit meiner Rückkehr nicht wirklich was von dir gehört hab, hab ich dich wohl beim Aufräumen meiner F-List aussortiert. Wie gesagt, mein LJ wird jetzt mehr oder minder eine private Community, und es geht da so ein bisschen ums Geben und Nehmen. Und wer länger nichts gibt, kann i-wann auch nichts mehr nehmen *lach*

Ich meine, Leuten steht es genauso frei, mich wieder von ihrer F-List zu nehmen, wenn ich mal länger nichts mehr von mir hören lasse, da bin ich ganz unvoreingenommen und würd's auch vollkommen verstehen. Ich kann auch verstehen, wenn Leute aus Gründen mal nichts von sich hören lassen schließlich geht das echte Leben immer vor, dann melden sie sich eben kurz bei mir und ich adde sie gerne zurück. Es ist mir halt nur wichtig, dass ich weiß, wer meine Stories liest und ob man sie auch liest und es ist einfach nur ein wenig persönlicher, wenn man ab und zu was von den Leuten hört. Muss nicht jeden Tag für jedes Entry sein, aber so ab und zu ein Lebenszeichen wäre nett *lach*

Und keine Sorge, nerven tust du mich schon mal gar nicht. Ich wünsch noch viel Spaß beim Stöbern und Lesen ^_^

I remember a long time ago reading your story Survival Of The Fittest and loved it. I would love to read the sequel A Demon's fate and was wondering if you could add me back, please?

I've been MIA from lj for an unreal amount of time.. but now that life has finally calmed down a little I would love to be able read your f-locked fics once again! I'm so far behind it'll take me awhile to catch up, but I promise to comment as often as I can.

I've missed reading your work <3
Kate, Kathrin, Katjagazerock4eva on November 16th, 2014 04:11 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I know how that is. Been MIA myself for a long time, too. Sometimes real life is insistent on demanding all of your attention =)

I hope you'll enjoy reading, and I'll be looking forward to hearing from you ^_^

I'm happy you like my works! Thank you for your support!
gazerockislifegazerockislife on November 27th, 2014 08:45 pm (UTC)
Add me please?
Hi, I just saw this post and wanted to ask if you could add me as a friend. I really like your writing style and it's way better than anything I'm able to write. I'm not that great at commenting, but I'll be sure to worship your writing and leave really badly written comments.
Kate, Kathrin, Katjagazerock4eva on November 28th, 2014 06:26 am (UTC)
Re: Add me please?
Hi, and welcome to my LJ =)

I'm happy you've stumbled on it and enjoyed what you've found. I've added you, and no worries, writing is like most everything in life - the longer you do it, the better you get. I've been writing for almost 10 years now, I'm glad people think me skilled at it.

There are no bad comments and I'm always glad to hear from my readers *laughs* So don't worry about that either, I'll be looking forward to it. Have fun reading!
