This account is maintained by the site admins for the purpose of hosting stories that have been orphaned by their author.
Orphaning is an alternative to deletion and allows an author to remove all association from a story while letting the story remain in the archive for fans to enjoy!
To orphan a story:
- Make sure you are logged in and either select "contact author" on this profile or head to the contact us page.
- State the title of the story you want to orphan
- Let us know what name you would like the orphaned story to be credited to and we will make sure to include it in the summery/story notes (or let us know if you don't want a name on it at all)
- Also let us know if you want all the reviews on the story to be deleted or left as-is
- Once confirmed, the story will be moved to this account.
Please understand once the story is transferred to this account you no longer will be able to edit or delete the story. In exchange we will not alter the text or take any kind of credit, our goal is simply to preserve stories that would otherwise be lost to future fans.
If you still want to disassociate your name from a story but don't want to go so far as to "orphan" the story, we offer the options of changing your penname or moving your story to a different account that you create. You can read more about the options and "orphaning" stories here .
