I was sad to read that you will no longer be writing but that is because I am a purely selfish person :-) You've given me so much enjoyment over the years that I can't help but respect you and your decisions and wish you the very best with whatever you do in the future.
I *am* contacting you for slightly selfish reasons though. I run a number of Jack/Daniel Thematic Lists on Livejournal -
Invariably, some of your stories are included in several themes. You said in your email that you have taken your stories down from your site and will remove them from a few more. Right now the majority are still up on Area 52. Am I correct in understanding that they will be taken off the net completely? Is there no little corner of the internet where I can direct people to read your brilliant works? I'm sure other reccers will be in the same predicament as I.
Assuming that your fics are removed completely from the net, how do you feel about people sending copies to each through email? I'm sure there will be a time in the (probably very near) future where someone is looking for your stories on stargate_search. I don't want to do something (or encourage my subscribers to do something) that you don't wish for.
Thank you for taking the time to read and I hope you have a very enjoyable weekend.
Because of the following circumstances; i.e. –
a) Pepe was going to keep her site operational for a few days to allow people to copy her fics
b) Pepe said she'd be willing to email people copies of her stories if they asked for them
c) I suspect there will be a lot of requests in this community regarding Pepe's fics
d) I've spoken to Pepe and she is fine with this occuring
I have uploaded and made available to people all of Pepe's stories that I had on my HD. The file is 1.45MB compressed, 9.9MB decompressed.

a) There are NO warnings on each of the story files so readers must beware strong, dark themes for a significant amount of stories
b) These are not all of Pepe's fics – there are 30+ stories listed on her site. If anyone reading this has copies of stories not already provided in the zip file and would be willing to upload them for other members, please provide a link in comments and I'll edit the post as needed
c) I don't know what is going to happen to the fic and art on Pepe's site that were created by other people, so if you want any of those, I'd grab them while I had the chance.
