    I think Thalarian's Queens Of Darkness, Ladies Of Light deserves a place in this community.

    Although I don't know if that fic got enough 4.5 or higher ratings, there were a lot of positive comments (-> Thread).

    When/if you get 2Champions on FFNet gimme a shout. Thanks! <3

    I just realised I missed all of the restricted section out- And apparently it didn't really matter.

    Updated:

    [​IMG] Queens Of Darkness, Ladies Of Light by Thalarian (Missed on Original Bulk Add)
    [​IMG] It Could Only Happen to Harry by HoosYourDaddy (Missed on Original Bulk Add)

    The rest either don't appear on FFNet, are sub-standard or were already added in the Author adds.

    What do you guys think is an appropriate number of nominations to flat out remove something?

    EDIT: I'm actually going to go the other end of the scale and say 5. But 2 days without a redeeming vote and they're gone anyway.

    4-5 for instant removal, anything lower should be removed after two or three days depending on objections/discussion.

    I joined the C2 within half an hour of this topic being created. Never used one before, or really explored any, but why not. Have to admit I was pretty WTF at the contents until I remembered that C2s don't include M rated fics right off the bat.

    Wasn't aware we were all saying we're in or not. But I guess I'll say it, too: joined/subscribed. Nice work, enembee.

    Thanks scary!

    For anyone who's interested in this sort of thing:

    We're actually moving too quickly through the ranks of C2s for FFNet to accurately keep up with us (There's a delay of inestimable time between page updates) but we just broke through the top 200. For just over 6 hours that's not bad, but we're only average 10 an hour :D

    There's something like 80 people online right now! Get going!

    Some bonus facts: If we reach 133 members, we will be the only C2 made in the last 3 years to break into the top 100. If we reach the target of 400 we will be the first C2 made in 5 years to break into the top 25. And we knock a Snape Slash C2 out, what more noble goal can we have?

    Lulz at the DLP machine at work. 10 an hour isn't a bad rate for a forum this size, seeing as there are a shitload of lurkers.

    This is pretty awesome.

    It would be cool to subscribe to the other DLP C2's out there. Imagine if more then one of our C2's is in the top 25.

    What do you guys think?

    ... So that's what I did wrong. After all the time I've spent on FFN, you'd think I would've learned by now... Sorry for thinking that "there are no recently updated stories in the list", my mistake.

    @Stalin's Pipe Organs

    Well, that is a good idea... But I don't think the other DLP C2's are quite up to par comparative to this one. I mean, Nonjon is great and all, but the last time I checked his C2 had some pretty sucky fics in it.

    I don't mean the C2's of individual authors. I mean these.
