I've been a little disconnected from the fanfiction sites recently for many personal reasons, but I saw this community was started, and it seems like a nice place to connect full of many writers I have been admiring from afar! I do hope to read more of everyone's stories soon and connect with you all if you don't mind me!
Also excuse me while I try to remember how to use forum like this! It's a welcome throwback lol.
ElizaG! You're one of my very favourite writers and I'm absolutely delighted you're here!! Welcome. And to anyone who's not read her work....you simply must.
So nice!!! And same to you, as I hope you know! Love your work!!!

Hi all! Random question: Is there an appropriate thread for posting N&S related happenings? For example, Me and Anna Stonebrook host #NorthAndSouth Sunday Twitter Space every second Sunday of the month on Twitter, and so I wanted to give everyone a heads up about the topic (this month is Victorian Christmas, so it's N&S adjacent...we usually do more very specific N&S topics but wanted to do something Christmasy). I think we will likely do a read-along in the New year, and I've love for people to listen and participate (anyone can talk on a Twitter Space- it's like a live podcast/radio show) to hear your thoughts. Anyway, let me know if it would be appropriate to share that info on here, where it would be best to post, or if it's not what the intent of this forum is, I completely understand. :)

I think we've got a thread called Everything N&S. Honestly you could also just start a new thread if necessary

Oh my gosh you just made me realize there is more than one page of threads. It's like I haven't been on the internet for 20+ years with this learning experience, lol. Thank you! I don't see Everything N&S so maybe I'll just create a new thread for updating!

Ah! It's called 'North and South Chat'. Sorry. My bad. But yeah I always forget there's more than one page 😂

That's exactly the intent of this forum :hugs To share North and South everything with people who love it!

You are very welcome to make your own topic and it might even best to do so because the chatty topics are busy and I for one tend to lose track of things :rofl

But post anywhere you like, honestly. We have no rules (except #bekind and love John and Margaret) :)

Hi everyone! I'm impossibleusay (she/her, aka Imp, as dubbed by Merry!). I am a longtime fan of North and South - I first saw it a year or two after it came out, read a bunch of fics on ff.net, but moved on to other fandoms for many years. But somehow earlier this year I got a random hankering to dive back into this fandom and I have been eagerly reading and rereading many of your guys' fics ever since. I'm not a writer myself, just a reader and mostly a shy fandom lurker by nature - but I love this little community that is growing here and wanted to join!

I really needed a post like yours today Imp (I call her Imp cos I like to have nice little names for people, it's just a fond thing and probably drives them round the bend :lol ) - it made me very happy that you joined - it is a lovely community and we are so glad to have you here. :heart

Never say 'just' a reader :) where the heck would we be without people still reading our stories and taking an interest in them and commenting (Imp here has been a wonderful commenter on my stories, she just makes such interesting and thoughtful points - that get me inspired to write)

It's all going well, isn't it :bighug
