Stories by Mar Qaroll

Well, then. That was fast...

Right after the decision to put my stories on AO3, I have this to talk about.

If all goes well, I might not need to put my work on AO3 after all. I'm currently working on a site I call Archive of My Own - Works by Mar Qaroll, a.k.a. Stories by Mar Qaroll. ๐Ÿ˜€ If I do it right, it'll be my own version of AO3 using Blogger pages as statics and entries as navigation and stories. If any of that made sense. ๐Ÿ˜…

The way I see it in my head is pretty sweet, so I hope I can make it work. I'll work my damnedest using CSS and HTML to do so! Because...I still don't want to use and would rather avoid using AO3 at all costs, if I can. I really want it to be a site for transformative works only. It is their mission statement, after all. And I want to support that. ๐Ÿ™‚

In the meantime, this is what I have so far, appearance-wise!

A preview of the site's main page!
Not bad, eh? The layout is identical to that of AO3's main page. ๐Ÿ˜ Managed to get rid of all the annoying stuff with CSS and HTML, as I said. This might really be able to work. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Now all I have to do is figure out what I'll be putting on the site first and what that means I'll do with the stories that are elsewhere online. After all, I hate having multiple things all over the internet when they can just be given a specific spot. ๐Ÿ˜• This means doing something about the Royal Road and Campfire locations...Grr, I just went over this. ๐Ÿ˜‘

Back to work, I guess.
