Searching for AuLu fanfiction

Website update: several new reviews/links added to the "Others' Fanfiction" page of the AuronLu Shrine. There's a fair amount out there, most of it quite good! The catch of the day is Crimson and Amethyst, an Aulu set in canon that is unfortunately unfinished, but runs for three chapters.

However, I can't find two that are listed on the now-defunct AuLu site here: The Sanctity of Being Alone by Ifiria, and In My Dreams by Andromeda. I'm assuming ff.net killed them for being too explicit. Has anyone found them posted elsewhere?

I am certain that there are more Aulus out there I haven't found yet. 99% of those I've found so far are on ff.net. If you know of any Aulu stories that I've missed, please post here!

Also -- woot! I'm second on the google search for "Auron Lulu" now! That's good, because the old Aulu site mentioned above hasn't been updated in several years, and all its fanfic links are broken. Now if only someone could convince the official Auron Lulu Fanlisting to add the AuronLu Shrine to their list of "extras" (sites), since most of their featured sites are broken, years out of date, or not in English!

To register at AFF, or not to register.

Hmmmm.

You know, back when all this began, I was a happy lurker on AFF.net. I donated a few times over the years. Then I got the bug to start writing Aulu lemons, and -- woot, the site crashed! Behold my awesome powers of entropy! And that was good, because it meant that I spent a lot longer polishing my first submissions.

Eventually I couldn't stand it anymore and started posting on ficwad.com. I've also discovered Freedom of Speech Fanfiction Archive. However, I had meant to tide myself over until AFF was back up, then post there.

There's just one problem. I've met some great folks on the forums and lj pages of the AFF community, but I've also seen some really nasty posts on the yahoo group list that give me pause.
