THIS POST CONTAINS NO EXTERNAL LINKS WHICH IS HOW YOU CAN TELL

IT IS FROM ME, ACTUAL FUCKING RAVE.

i'm rushing from thing to thing today so this is gonna be short, but dorkorific can't be recovered at the moment (ETA 2: omg yes it can, it's me again, GO TEAM. all is back under control there as of now. but i'm still feeling a little freaked, so, you know, whatever; i'm gonna keep using sashayed mostly, for now. ANYWAY) as it was explained to me today in an email from abuse, "The problem here is that hotmail.com is apparently allowing old usernames to be recycled. Someone can register an old email that was validated on an account, and request an email reset. This appears to be the case with your account 'dorkorific'." but it appears that, until something else goes wrong, i now have control over the community, so, you know, EAT IT, EVERYBODY ELSE.

if any other entries DO appear here, and they link to external sources, PLEASE don't click on them. (the only non-lj site i'd send you to is the incredible lomara's .pdf files of the shoebox chapters, an awesome resource which you can find linked somewhere in cult_sbp.) when we get the entries back, ladyjaida and i will both confirm that we've done so.

to anyone who DID click on those links, this is the important thing, via copperbadge, to whom this also happened:

A number of people found keyloggers on their computers after they clicked the russian poetry site link. A few people actually attempted to translate it (the poem is about eating shit, apparently) and are regretting it. We are advising people to go to pack.google.com and download the free Spyware Doctor and run a scan, also running a scan via Housecall if they don't have an installed antivirus program on your computer.

i'm so sorry about all of this, everyone. and, okay, i lied, since i have no time to do anything similarly helpful there will be just one link: to copperbadge's amazingly useful entry on his version of this whole ordeal. (MAYBE HOVER OVER IT WITH YOUR MOUSE BEFORE YOU CLICK JUST TO MAKE SURE I AM NOT LYING, THIS IS A GOOD HABIT FOR THE FUTURE TOO.) http://copperbadge.livejournal.com/1940548.html.

so basically, 1. download a solid antivirus program; 2. check any hotmail accounts you have to make sure they haven't lapsed, 3. change your passwords and set a security question, and 4. don't click on anything you're not sure about.

love you guys. more to come!


ETA ONE THING: this happened to me because i, stupidly, wasn't monitoring which email addresses were linked to my account. i don't think this is unusual, with longstanding ljs, since I hadn't used the hotmail account in question for years and years and years; but even though it's pretty normal behavior, it's (obviously!) not good. so it's worth it for all of you to check and make sure you aren't giving a vulnerable email access to your journal: http://www.livejournal.com/tools/emailmanage.bml

BASICALLY DON'T GET HACKED YOU GUYS ON ACCOUNT OF, IT SUCKS

hey I remember Shoe box from a few years back, but I (for god knows What reason) couldn't find it again one day - but now i have, but can't find the actual story! Where's it gone??? D:
www.lomara.org/sbp

:)
Shoebox is dead. :[
Yeah, I've pretty much given up hope that we will ever see anything new :(
I miss so much this fanfiction.

I've loved It. I love it. I will love it.
I wish SBP would come back... would it be too hard to just use the PDFs and make new entries?? I miss reading this on my phone.. :(

/complain

It really is a pity, though, that this com got hacked..
*places flowers in corner*
I sob every time I check this comm and find that this is still the only post :(

"question - will this be one of those perpetual work in progresses that will fester in our souls until we hate you?
answer - no. that is why we are cowriting. we will not do this to you. or ourselves. "

... Lies.
*weeps* please...please....please bring us the ending. at least wrap it up if you're going to leave...soooo much....love...and goodness....this got hacked two years ago...two long years...of waiting...and weeping. :(
Any chances of a new chapter? Or telling us there never will be so we can weep, rend our garments, mourn and move on?
I'm glad I'm not the only one who checks this page every week, just with a glimmer of hope.... Ah well, I have Dragonsoul to read to (partially) console me. :)

I turned myself transparent the other day... I wonder if anyone saw 'Shoeboxer forever' etched into my ventricles.... :)
Wondering if there's anyway to get my mitts on old chapters if there arn't going to be any new ones?
^_^ x

So I was incredibly late getting into the fandom and didn't get around to reading this until way after the fact, but I'd heard whispers about this fic EVERYWHERE for years, and so when I finally read it... Ugh, I am basically still to this day heartbroken/crushed/devastated/delusionally hopeful about it being - or not being - updated.

Sigh, this is the reason why I never read WIPs, because ugh, I am, and forever will be, way too invested.
I barely feel I have the right to demand updates or get upset about it not being finished because comparatively, I only jumped on the fan bandwagon for it recently, but ughhh my love for this will never die and I will continue hoping. And I can't say enough how much I adore you guys for even writing it in the first place!

One day, I am confident, I will check this page and there will be an update.
There's never going to be another update. I'm going to go emo in the corner.

(Perhaps reverse psychology...?)

And there I will keep you forever,
Yes, forever and a day,
Till the wall shall crumble to ruin,
and moulder in dust away.
Is this fanfiction ever going to get republished for us? I miss it terribly.
