10/11/2018: Having a break for a while longer as health isn’t so good. I will be back eventually, as still have many draft chapters of MH to pad out, then hopefully complete the fic and possibly go on to my other WiPs. C x
20/10/2018: Weekly update ~ Mercenary Hearts 16 ~ /20ish ~ Califi
13/10/2018: Weekly update ~ Mercenary Hearts 15 ~ /20ish ~ Califi
05/10/2018: As promised, weekly update ~ Mercenary Hearts. 14 ~ /20ish ~ Califi
17/09/2018: (Update: only the main page of the arsehole copy is still visible now. No response from their Host. Will have to publicize it so future host-searchers are aware they can’t be bothered to do the right thing.)
Please be aware that GTC/A has been scraped (copied) and is being used on another domain call yakkedyyack.top. Have emailed them, and waiting for a response. If none, I will be reporting them to relevant bodies. Their HOME page is actually showing my OLD theme, but the rest looks exactly the same as mine does now. Please do check the DN in the address bar, as, on looking at the Source page of their homepage, they’ve added a LOT of spam links, so do be careful on following links purporting to lead to GTC/A. Peace, C xxx
15/09/2018: New chapter ~ Mercenary Hearts 12 ~ /20ish ~ Califi.
09/09/2018: New chapter ~ Mercenary Hearts 11 ~ /20ish ~ Califi.
01/09/2018: New chapter ~ Mercenary Hearts 10 ~ /20-ish ~ Califi. Trying not to take too long in publishing new chapters as they are finished. C x
27/08/2018: New chapter ~ Mercenary Hearts 9 ~ /20-ish. ~ Califi
25/08.2018: As you’ve probably noticed :P, GTC/A has had a theme makeover. This was due to the old theme not being updated by the Creator for two years. This caused several glitches- IE: mobile mode affecting desktop mode (and not being able to switch). It’s a whole different color & set out, but I hope you all like the changes. Cali xxx
21/08/2018: A heads up. Lysa is still working on new Chapters of Season of solace, and there a few new ones already published on her own Site Darkness and Daylight if you want to check them out (and new fic). I’ve decided to wait until Season of Solace is completed before adding the rest to my own Archive. Enjoy. 🙂
20/08/2018: Mercenary Hearts is back up and revamped. There are two more chapters posted: Part 7 and 8. Reason being there has been a lot of editing and adding of new scenes/chapters, and also changing the order they are in. So some parts it will be new, and others you’ve already read- (if you’ve read the fic).
It won’t be pulled again, as I’ve had it given a clean bill of health first, by my faboo Beta, Lysa. xxx
22/07/2018: I noticed by chance that a page link in Season of Solace had been mistakenly linked. This caused a jump and missed out Page 43. This has now been corrected. Apologies for anyone who read it. Califi x
20/07/2018: Another (new) Chapter of Getting to Know you (17) added. The new Chapter is pretty short, but I’m hoping future ones will fill out if/when I get back fully into the swing of writing fic. So difficult to know if I’m doing ok or badly (do miss the ‘old’ days of interaction/feedback/constructive criticism). Anyhoo, hopefully I’ll finish this fic at least. Peace. Califi x
10/07/2018: I’ve put up a pile of fic I’d missed out. It had been a trial getting it all back up after I changed platform a few years back; so many fic in the folder, some were overlooked. More to come ~ too many to post links on this page, sorry. (Maybe I’ll get round to it one day). Peace, Califi x
14/07/2018: Okayyy, had a mini crash which destroyed my home Page *wibble*. No frills replacement added (gutted to have lost all the Comments though *more wibbling*).
13/07/2018: I’ve had a few peeps ask me if I had a Fic A-Z on my site (I used to on my older site before changing to a WordPress platform). Honestly, I didn’t think at the time it mattered too much (plus time-consuming) … until I was searching for a particular fic and realised what a pain it was, lol. Anyhoo, have been at it for most of the day, but RL keeps begging for attention. Reckon it will take another day to complete, plus seek out fics added that aren’t updated on my offline file. Up to about L atm.
I also found quite a few fics that haven’t been added (quite a few are mine, and IMHO, a bit sh#t, lol). I will get round to adding most of them at some point.
Oh, and if anyone finds clicking the fic links fiddly on smaller screens, yell out (here) and I’ll space them out a bit more. Peace. Califi x
23/06/2018: Mercenary Hearts 4/? by Califi. ~New Chapter~
16/06/2018: So, today I decided to check out all the unpublished chapters of GTKY (there are quite a few, but awaiting rewrite). I hummed and hawed, struggled like mad, and bashed out a new (another short) Chapter. Life is so hectic nowadays, and rarely have time to myself (Grandkids, etc). I sometimes wonder if I’m wasting my time attempting to write fic after so long. It doesn’t seem as easy as it used to… time gap IS pretty big, lol. I will look to writing more of this fic (and other WIPs), but cannot promise it’ll be worth reading. Peace. Califi x
08/10/2017: You’ve guessed it. My Muse was starving, and as unfed, disappeared. Not sure if/when I’ll continue updating. There doesn’t seem to be much enthusiasm for the 2 old Series/fanfic, and I’ve had to remove dead links to other sites lately. I’ll monitor the site, and decide when to call it a day & shut it down (My web Host is getting expensive, eek, lol). Peace. Califi xx
13/08/2017: Faint Heart. 17/? by Califi. ~New Chapter~
12/08/2017: Right of Possession. 3/? by Califi. ~New Chapter~
10-11/08/2017: Uploaded two missing fics – came across them whilst looking for more GTKY plot notes. Right of Possession. 2/? & Mercenary Hearts. 3/? I know they are WiPs, but I’m hoping my recent Muse’arrival is at least long enough to finish them.
10/08/2017: Getting to Know You. 15/26+ Short chapter warning. Califi
10/08/2017: So, yeah. I’ve been doing the unspeakable and going in and out of the last 6 newly written chapters re-editing on the run. My bad, sorry. Not sure when I’ll be publishing Chapter 16 – not that I’ve even begun, oops! The writing of new instead of editing the original 10-26 chapters has led to having to do research to refresh my memory. One promise I can make is it won’t be as long a wait this time round. Any comments on the unbeta’d chapters welcome, whether glowing or disappointed reviews. 🙂 (Feedback revitalises my fairweather Muse) Cali x
08/08/17: Getting to Know You. 14/26+ by Califi. Thrown out the ‘for rework’ chapters (10-26) and starting them fresh.
07/08/2017: Getting to Know You. 12-13/26 By Califi
Omg! The ‘new’ chapters of GTKY sound so wooden – and loong. I’m thinking this was NOT a good idea, grr. But I made a promise.*wibble* I’ll most likely re-edit the pages at some point to add plot pieces I’ve forgotten and remove the chaff (well, it was originally started in 2003!). Apologies. God, I miss my Beta!
06/08/2017: Getting to Know You. 11/26 By Califi
03/08/2017: Getting to Know You. 10/26 By Author Califi
05/12/2016: Slowly adding my own fic. *Yawn*
10/10/2016: Lysa has reworked Season of Solace, so until I’ve completed the replacement, all links are inactive, sorry. Hopefully should be back up by the end of the week. 🙂
08/08/2016: Changed header pic; darn got the wrong shade of blue, grr … considering changing theme/colour, but kinda like the blue (which has been on GTC/A for over a decade – yikes! *feels old*). The daughter has had my 2nd grand daughter, so am still pretty busy lending a hand. Had a mooch through the site and noticed/fixed a few broken links NOT picked up by the Broken Link plugin *sigh* … so, you know the drill: any broken links from one chapter to another and feeling like Angel on a bad Beige day, drop a line. Cheers. 🙂
18/01/2016 (2): noticed there was an issue with mobile-friendly plugin. Good news; all sorted out. 🙂
18/01/2016: Just to warn you: in an attempt to get a little financial ‘help’ keeping this site alive, there are ads – hopefully not too distracting. If you use an ad blocker, I would appreciate dearly you not using it here (if you find the ads too much; hopefully not, I will understand if you use the block- let me know the impact – below, and I’ll try to minimise it even more).
I have been trying to find a way to fund this site. Paypal has been a bust, sadly, so onto Amazon Deals and the highlighted ‘infolinks‘ on words. If my circumstances change, the ads will go. Finger’s crossed. Hope to add more of the fic tomorrow. x
17/01/2016: Still have a way to go to add all the fic (arrrgh!), in the meantime, if anyone wishes to rec ‘new’ fic or Authors (make them aware you are reccing here) to add to GTCA, please leave a comment below. Also: if I have missed out updates of fics already here – or Current Authors have more fic they want me to add, you know what to do.*Hugs*
07/01/2016: Happy New Year everyone!. 🙂 Now, a little fun: Going to do a fic rec (from GTCA) every now and then. This one has everything: humour, sexiness and a bit of sober…. The Next Best Thing by the delicious Frazi. Enjoy!.
Will continue with adding the rest of the fic outstanding over the weekend. x
