1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?

I felt relieved. I thought, finally, my writing skills have improved enough to be accepted.

2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites? Which of these indicators did you notice first?

Email, although a mod asked me an outline of things to come first.

3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

A day or so after I've got my acceptance email.

4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?

I was lurking for H/Hr fics in FF.net, I stumbled on an author there who's also an author here and voila.

As for why I wanted to become a Pk author? Why not? I mean Canon already had their Happily ever after, its time to have ours *evil laugh* twisted.gif

That and I had a plot bunny that's been dying to come out, and I think PK is the perfect place to host it.

Wow, taintedwhite and cakeandmilk, it's great to see so many talented compatriots. Talented in writing fics and in art. I'm one of the few Pinoy PK-ers without any creative bone in their bodies, but I don't mind. biggrin.gif Congrats on getting your PK author badge.

Props to my beta(s): Elodie Tristie and Dimethylmercury!


I'm afraid I have to disagree with you there gal-texter. You are incredibly talented. I'm not sucking up here. LOL.

Seriously, you (and all Mods and Admins of course) always keeps PK in check. Now, that's a talent worthy of a worshippy.gif smiley.

So, there ---> worshippy.gif

Anyway, thank you gal-texter.

Hi! Call me Ayumi. :)




First of all, thanks to the mod for accepting me.

Now...

1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author?

Honestly? I was half asleep when I checked my email this morning, so it took me a while to understand what I was seeing. Then, when my brain finally digested what I saw, I was like "YES!" and my family looked at me as if I had grown another head or something. But, since I was to happy to notice, I just kept with my song of victory.


2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites? Which of these indicators did you notice first?
Have updated the URL. ~gal-texter, 29May2008

As I said above, I got an email.


3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side?

Well, it's been over an hour since I got the email, so I haven't posted anything yet. I think I will by the end of the day.


4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?

I was looking for H/Hr fic at LJ (I tend to avoid many sections in ff.net these days), and came across this story that was posted here, and... well, I fell in love with the site.

I just wanted to be part of this amazing site.

I think that's all...

1. How'd you react when you learned you've been accepted as a Portkey author? Thrilled! Shouted "whoo hoo!" or something similar.


2. How'd you learn you were accepted in Portkey or other sites? Which of these indicators did you notice first?
Have updated the URL. ~gal-texter, 29May2008 I got an email.


3. How many hours did you wait before uploading your very first story in Portkey's fanfic side? as soon as possible. I got the email on my iphone, so as soon as I got home to my PC I uploaded. An hour or less?


4. What lured you to Portkey? Why did you want to be a Portkey author?
I came to Portkey to read Harmony fanfics and at the time I even said in my newbie post that I would not be writing. Never say never...but a plot bunny fell into my lap and I wrote, then learned that my betas in my other fandom read HP as well, so that helped.
I love the quality of writing in Portkey and was thrilled to be accepted as an author. Now, as an author, I'm impressed by the quality of reviews and the encouraging feedback I've received from reviewers.
