It's not looking good for IPS finishing is it?   :-\  But, then again, never say never, I suppose.

365 Days is a good example.  It just updated again after 11 months!  It's a brilliant story - genuinely funny, excellent characterizations, and very natural dialogue.  It's written by the writing team of fiftyandfifty (comprised of Cathalin and Melisande, I believe).

I hadn't heard of 365 days before. But it seems to be a story that is liked by a lot of people. I'll certainly give it a try.

Thanks for the recommendation.  :)

Did 365 days update?? ??  :o

Oh, do check it out, Fabienne!  Here are the links:

Part 1: http://fiftyandfifty.livejournal.com/3903.html#cutid1
Part 2: http://fiftyandfifty.livejournal.com/4487.html
Part 3(1): http://fiftyandfifty.livejournal.com/5243.html
Part 3(2):http://fiftyandfifty.livejournal.com/5549.html

Each part is quite long - probably the equivalent of several chapters in many fics.

  :) Well, that's understandable since the last update was almost a year ago!  But it's so good that re-reading the first two parts is very enjoyable!

Here´s a masterlist of fics by Maggie (B73) that I do have. If someone has something by her that's not on this list (  :-*), or would like something from it, let me know.
None of these are longer available online

Mason Dixon
Del Mar Painting
Union Pacific (all three parts)
Portrait of a Farmer
Lake Geneva
Route 287
Confessions
Robinville
Rusted Pipe
Other Side of Nowhere


One fic that I used to have but no longer have (not one of Maggie´s though) is "The Wolf and the Thunderbird". Would appreciate it if someone could send me a copy!

Thanks people, for talking about 365 days! :D
I may have heard the title before, but never gave it a second thought. After reading here I checked it out. Even though it was going on midnight, I read the complete first part yesterday. Looking forward to the next parts. Cute idea for a story :).
