Default D. M. Domini?

Hi

I'm mainly a lurker here. I am posting because I followed D. M. Domini (dmdomini) at AO3. I would check in every so often to catch updates of her fanfic. I particularly enjoyed the Day Benden Went to War. Suddenly, all of her accounts are down and the fics are gone. Does anyone know if they are archived somewhere or what has happened?

Her account here still exists and last visit by that account was June 7, 2017, so just over a month ago. The web domain mentioned with her Meeting of Minds account is no longer active though (www.dmdomini.com) and for sale again, so can't check anything through WHOIS.

Thanks Hans! I've been a fan of Anne's book since I was about twelve and I'm over forty now. I think D.M. Domini's Pern/Talent crossover is just brilliant.

Having read a lot of fanfic from various sources over the years, I know to download/save anything that I like well enough to reread. I've manage to use the internet archive to capture about half of The Day Benden Went to War but the loss of the rest is disappointing.

Also, I hope that D.M. Domini is okay. Maybe there is a happy reason for the accounts to be abruptly taken down....like the launch of a successful writing career. It has happened before to other fanfic writers. I'll keep my fingers crossed that maybe someone here has the fic archived.

She only posted the original first chapter here, I think.

I hope she's okay, too!

You could try sneding her a private mesage from here; the system will saend her an email that you have done so. Provided that the email address she registered with is still active of course.

I only have chapter 1 of this archived; though I do have quite a lot of Domini's other work.

I heard from D.M. Domini. She is well! She took down her accounts to focus on her original fiction. She shared the pdf of the fic that I wanted too

Damn!!!

It's sad when a favorite Author does that. We miss out on his or her stories that we love and can't get them back.
