Fic Me Baby One More Time  
 Firstly, popped in Smallville S2 DVD and watched 2.04 Red today during my cardio workout, which is where I left off in ‘His Girl Friday’. One step closer. Excited to step back into that world. My ideas for Lex, Lana, Pete, The Kents as supporting characters for Chlark needs to see fruition. *bounces*

And secondly, once I actually have fic to post and contribute again I wanted to start posting at Ao3 but had a question to those that move stories over to Ao3. Is there a preferred method that won’t flood/overwhelm people? Or is that not even a worry and you can just upload the chapters all at once and it won’t mess up alerts or update categories.
I don’t know I’ve never actively searched for fic on Ao3, I tend to get links to stories there and that’s how I read fic there. I want to move over a story once I get the next chapter done and just want to do it right?

Do you have a lot of subscribers? I wouldn't worry about it, then. Even if you do, AO3 waits and sends a big update email for you a couple hours later. So if you updated ten stories/chapters, they'd all appear in that one update email.

Alternatively, you can also set the publishing dates of the chapters separately, if you wish. Then the story wouldn't even be on the "last updated" page until you got to the most recent. But if you want people to see it there who have never read it, don't bother with that.

Ooh this is good to know. Thank you! And no I don't have any lol, i've only been using it to review on Ao3 but this is good to know in the future if I move anything else over after I start publishing there.

I really need to spend some more time over there. I'm just so used to searching ff.net or getting story links through LJ comms or Tumblr these days.
