Question about Kallysten fic

Jul 27 2012 11:25 am   #1Rae 
Does anyone know why Kallysten took down all her fanfic? I used to have her site bookmarked, but my old laptop died a couple years ago and I lost all my links. By chance I recently found some of her fic archived at nocturnal light, but there's not a lot there. I remember her having a lot more. I've read that she took down Baby Steps so that she could revamp it as an original fic , but what about the rest? Are those still in circulation or does anyone have copies, specifically A New Dawn? Or did Kallysten ask that all her fic be removed, etc.?

I had a new Dawn saved as her LJ page, but I have just discovered that the links no longer work as the journal has been 'deleted and purged'. Her fanfic site also appears to have vanished. Therefore I would also be interested in finding any of her fics...... she was one of the best!

Sad to see another of the outstanding early fanfiction writers lost - I hope that someone has some good links that they can post where her work is still archived.

I think Kallysten took many (or possibly all?) her fics down as she is now a published author and turned some of them into Original fiction.

About 4-5 years ago I read a 3 book series that was a reworked version of one of her Spuffy fics. I never read the fanfiction version, but the books were about a vampire with magical powers meant to save the world and her sexy vampire companion if anyone recognizes it. My guess is that she decided to use more of her Spuffy stories as inspiration for new books. I know we all love a good Spuffy story, but her writing is worth checking out in book form too.

I think Kallysten has reworked almost all her fanfic into original fic, and so she took down all the fanfics except for a few she missed. I think the  3 book series you mention was probably originally the Childe & Sire series, which is still up at Nocturnal Light along with a few other stories: http://www.nocturnal-light.net/fanfiction/authors/32/Kallysten.

She did put up a new short at http://kallysten.livejournal.com/882506.html#cutid1  called Ghosts.  It is Spike/Connor.  There is a sequel, Reflections:http:// http://kallysten.livejournal.com/883058.html#cutid1.

Thanks for the info on her ff works - I will go over to the sites and read again what is there.

Thank you so much, Cordykitten! I have now found a few of my old favourites.

Luckily I have the first 3 stories in the 'His Childe' series saved from the old Vampire's Kiss website, but unfortunately I only saved the index page of the 4th story in the series, "Whose destiny" at her defunct site. It was a 50 chapter fic, and it's gone! I don't suppose anybody archived a full copy?

Ooh! Ooh! Ooh!



I have just found a live link to 'Whose Destiny?" the 4th Sire/Childe story!

Thanks for all these links! I don't suppose anyone knows where I could find the "Sire & Childe" drabbles (as opposed to the main stories) or the "Suspend Your Disbelief" series?

Hey, any chance someone could share the Sire/Childe stories they have saved?
