Hey guys, me again...
Any of you kindred souls using iPad to read fanfic? Also downloading to read later offline on holiday?
Most people use downloadable pdfs but those don't work with iPad mini because of the unadjustable font size. I tried but ended up with fics only ants and pixies can read.
Alas, I am looking for a good downloader.
There were some recommended years ago, but those don't exist anymore. The ones on AppStore only work with FanFiction.net, which site isn't the best for Qaf fandom. Still, I tested "Read Up" (faulty, couldn't even start), "Pocket Fiction" (crashes every 10 minutes, crappy interface), and "FanFiction" (looks promising, although it has been syncing for over an hour now).
So I am hoping someone better versed in technology can recommend one that works with Qaf fanfic sites, too.
There are great fics you just must read, but they are oftentimes untagged and infrequently updated, so extracting them manually from lj chapter by chapter can really be a nuisance.
Oh, how I long for a "fic magnet" that just pulls the relevant parts, formatted and chaptered, no ads of course...
Any of you guys know of such a thing, or feel like making one? :-D

No downloader on the horizon yet, but after some nudging from the helpful [livejournal.com profile] dzmom I checked other options (duh!) and realized that the new Adobe Acrobat Reader actually has a feature called "reading mode" where you can increase text size! So I guess working around the problem is the way to go. On to pdfs!

Does anybody know if there is a PDF version downloadable of "Before There Was You There Was You"? I saw on Midnight Whispers that it's printable but, being as long as it is, that would be a lot to print, even if I had a working printer.

I need to download my fics more than ever. I was terribly disappointed not to be able to download from Midnight Whispers as I had been able before. Is it still possible? I'm having a very difficult time with the site.

I know this is a little strange, but do any of you lovely souls have suggestions for stories I should read which I can also download? lol. My computer has been slowly dying for the last year and it's on its last leg, so I need stories I can send to my Kindle.

Long or short. AU, OOC, or Canon is fine, although I prefer they at least start in character and realistically change from there. Bonus points for lots of sex! Haha! I can't lie. I love it, but I also love plot. Literally open to any category. New, old, whatever.

I know this is a strange and vague request, but I'm desperate. So if you have a favorite story, or even author, and you know where I can download it, please share! And if you would, give a short plot description with your suggestion? TIA.

***Update: Suggestions in comments! :-)

Does anyone have this story in Word or PDF? It is 46 chapters long, and I would prefer not to manually copy it to a Word doc. I want to read it on my Kindle.

I apologize if this doesn't belong here but I was wondering if Anyone knows what happened to the Midnight Whispers site?
[identity profile] marianabrazil.livejournal.com
I do not know if I can make this request here, so if I'm breaking any rules of the site, please excuse me and can delete my post, but I'm in great need of help and do not know another place I can get it.
I do not know English and have to use a translator to be able to read fanfiction that interest me, but I can not read anything in fanfiction.net that has more than one chapter because when page change it back to English.
I'd love the help of you for to find a program that I can download fanfiction.net.e stories so I could translate them.
I appreciate the help of all.

I wonder if anyone has a copy of the story "The Dog Star" by nightvision55 in Word or PDF document.
I do not speak or read English, so I have to translate with the help of Google stories that interest me and I can not copy anything from Fanfiction.net.
For this reason I am looking at the history and I will be very grateful with your help.
A hug and thank you, Fatima.

Found by [livejournal.com profile] kellankyle and [livejournal.com profile] chase37 link in the comments.

Does anyone know where can I find the 'Sunshine Files' as a pdf file or epub? 

Not found. But thanks anyway.
[identity profile] suse60.livejournal.com
Maybe shouldn't be asking this here but I will delete if not appropriate. Someone recommended a fic that is on fan fiction.net. I always copy the stories I read to make it a Word Doc and then put it on my Kindle. I can never seem to copy text from that site. Is there a secret to this does anyone know? Any advice is truly appreciated.

Thank You all for your suggestions. I will definitely find one that works for me. Everyone is always so helpful on this site. You Rock!
Just wanted to add I used the FicSave site and it worked perfectly. Thank You all again.

Help! Where can I find fics by Blacksatinrose? In particular, Slowly Unstitching. It is recced all over but the LJ is no longer active.
[identity profile] sunandstars-1.livejournal.com
Is anyone else having a problem trying to access FanFiction.net? I had been in but tried to go from one episode to another in a chaptered story. I was unable to do so.
Please help, Thanks

Hello everyone! Over the course of the next few days/weeks I'm probably going to be posting a few requests, so apologies in advance for the spamming. I've decided to make a master list of the best QAF recs on my LJ and have well over 200 stories to share, about 20 of which I've already shared, so I have a long way to go! For the majority of the stories I'm recommending I don't have any issues but I do have a short list I need help with. Thanks in advance!

1) I like including word counts for each story since page/chapter numbers alone can sometimes be deceiving. Does anyone happen to know the word count for "Cross Reference" by Laciudad? I have a PDF copy but I don't have a copy in Word and can't find it anywhere online. If not, this really isn't a big deal but I just thought I'd throw that out there! Answered! Thanks to miss_alysandra there is a Word copy of "Cross Reference" under the author name of Cara del sol in Aly's GIH 4-Shared Mirror.

2) Looking for a story I read where Brian was Justin's babysitter. Brian is a college or high school student and Justin is a young kid. I'm pretty sure Jennifer ends up feeling uncomfortable by BJ's relationship and she fires Brian. It's not "Hell is Other People" and I've checked all tags with the word "babysit." Found! Thanks to lrknow for finding "Bane Of My Existence" by Jackie which can be found in Aly's GIH 4-Shared Mirror.

3) Looking for a story I read where Justin is a teacher at Gus's school. He meets Brian and they flirt. Justin is a chaperone for a school field trip to the zoo and Brian ends up going as well. Again, I've checked all the "teacher" tags but can't seem to find this particular story. Found! Thanks to chase37 for finding "Wish Upon A Star" by Moonshadow Woman: http://www.midnightwhispers.ca/viewstory.php?sid=199. Another story that is similar was found by apipsc called Chocolate Kisses and its sequel Bear Hugs by LibertySun.

Hi everyone! I am OCD and am going crazy trying to find a way to organize the stories I read. I was coming to see if anyone here has any good suggestions. I am willing to write everything down by hand and file everything so if that is one as well. I want to be able to help with linking to stories and even though I know of an author or a title I can't remember where I have read it and I think this will help with that.

I hope the question sounded right. I hope I didn't make it sound so complicated and I really hope that this general question was okay.

(Example: Justin Allergies/Sick
                Credence by GaleandRandy)

EDIT: I had some great suggestions and they were all so simple. Thank you all again!

I have never had a good memory and it doesn't get better as you reach the end of your life... I was a pre-war baby.

Anyway I'm pretty sure I've asked this before but I don't know haw to trace the answer.  Brian and Justin arrange to meet on a bridge in New York at New Years to watch the fireworks. I do want the answer to this question again but even better how can I trace my previous questions?

Sorry to be so pathetic but I really want to know.

Thanks in advance... Love from 6frog

Wonderful and full answer... thank you so much.

Hi, I went through the 'downloads' tag but I didn't really find what I was looking for. So I hope ya'll can help me out - I'm looking for fics that are ONLY available by download, complete, and nc-17. These are my three requests:

1) Jealous/Possessive Brian - it just gets me every time, I have a thing for jealousy and possessiveness.
2) Non-AU Mpreg - I'd like to read stories where Justin gets pregnant but otherwise the story stays true to the show. I've already read Lizzy's fics so please don't rec them.
3) Justin Stalked - I'd really like to read some stories where Justin is stalked by someone and Brian protects him. Bonus if Ethan is the stalker, but it doesn't HAVE to be him.

Well, I hope ya'll can help me out. Thank you!

UPDATE: Lots of recs in comments, both links and downloads. More are always welcome of course! Thanks everyone!

thanks for the help- responses in comments

Hi! I'm looking for "The Prince and the Privateer" by Moonshadow Woman/Elsa Rose. I looked at the tags and the link doesn't work and tried to go through the downloads and didn't see it so if you have a working link or could e-mail it to me I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Edit: Found some links!
