I read the first three chapters on Monday night, commenting on each one as I always do. Maybe I should have waited until I reached the end before commenting because at least then I might have read it all.
Tuesday evening, I went to read chapter 4 only to find the whole story had been taken down. I guess the writer just didn't want anyone reading it now, which is odd since it was posted directly to a public community for anyone to read, but there you go. It's gone.
It was a good fic, very angsty, I was enjoying it. Presumably the writer had forgotten it was there until they started getting comments on it, which means by commenting I've managed to take away everyone else's opportunity to read what was proving to be an enjoyable fic with an intriguing OFC. So, I apologise.
It's not going to stop me reccing older fics, nor will it stop me commenting on them. The majority of writers are delighted to get new readers on their older stories. For whatever reason, that seems not to have been the case this time. Very disappointing, not to mention baffling. Ah well, hopefully next week will turn out better.
Chalk that one up to experience I guess. *wanders off to find something for week One Hundred and Ten*
