Not really sure why but this story never made it onto my reading list like most of the other fics on this site did - I probably just overlooked it. Anyway, as it looks as though you've got most of the chapters of this final edition uploaded, I thought now would be a good time to start.

It didn't work out too well. I've actually spent the last 10 mins trying to find out if there is any way to get two different ebook readers to override the font face and size selections that are hard coded into your story - without success. I've come to the conclusion that I'll probably have to grab the original html for each chapter and edit that to clear the font definitions before then repacking it into an epub or mobi. As that's work I don't want to do more than once, I'll have to wait until everything is posted.. <sigh>

You know, at one time, the site generated epub, mobi, pdf, etc. when fics/chapters were uploaded. (I will admit that I don't know what a mobi is.) I honestly don't know why that happened for some fics and not others, it's not something I initiated. If you're frustrated by the fixed font sizes, etc., you should have seen it when I initially uploaded the files. For whatever reason, I haven't been able to convince the admin system to retain italics, special characters, etc. without fixing the font selections. If the admin system allowed me to upload PDFs, I would host chapter PDFs here - that's how I store and re-read what I write. So, sorry for the frustration; I share it, in some measure, though I greatly appreciate everything Tim (jeconais) has done to provide all of us with a place to read and write.
