The admins of FanFiction.net are obviously the kind of guests that, when invited over, kick the dog and go about rearranging your furniture to their own liking.

It's my browser - don't be disabling its functionality! How rude!

Fortunately, I got the answer from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7101982/enabling-blocked-text-selection-using-javascript

Create a shortcut in your browser, then edit out the link by copy and pasting in the following:

javascript:(function(){function ats(){var styles='*,p,div{user-select:text !important;-moz-user-select:text !important;-webkit-user-select:text !important;}';jQuery('head').append(jQuery('<style />').html(styles));var allowNormal=function(){return true;};jQuery('*[onselectstart], *[ondragstart], *[oncontextmenu], #songLyricsDiv').unbind('contextmenu').unbind('selectstart').unbind('dragstart').unbind('mousedown').unbind('mouseup').unbind('click').attr('onselectstart',allowNormal).attr('oncontextmenu',allowNormal).attr('ondragstart',allowNormal);}function atswp(){if(window.jQuery){ats();}else{window.setTimeout(atswp,100);}}if(window.jQuery){ats();}else{var s=document.createElement('script');s.setAttribute('src','http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.min.js');document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0].appendChild(s);atswp();}})();

Then just click on the link and it'll unlock the text - great if, like me, you just need some way to mark your place while reading on screen!

Happy reading!

After months of radio silence, the FanFiction site has written two self-congratulatory blog entries about all the improvements they've made recently - although the feedback looks pretty vitriolic. Note to self : people don't cope well with change - people really don't cope well with web-design change.

It's amusing that both of the articles are named "Polishing" and, it seems that in celebration of that, my location seems to have been changed from my manually set "United Kingdom" (after the auto-detection kept showing up as "Iceland") to "Poland".

You can't make this stuff up!

Wattpad

I'd heard about Wattpad before - specifically about a zombie story that Margaret Atwood was collaborating on (although who hasn't done something walking deadish these days? - I mean I'm writing one myself, it's just on hiatus).

I thought I'd give it a quick look - I've set up an account at http://wattpad.com/TheYmp even though I've only recently got round to finally posting something at Fiction Press)

I can't help but wonder if this is where FanFiction got the idea of the "covers" from - except they seem to be so much better done at Wattpad - how come no one at FF seems to do them like actual book covers - I've just had a "d'oh" revelation!

But I did have a very swift perusal of their Supernatural fanfic section... oh my... absolutely nothing but Mary Sues as far as the eye could see...
