  • Nautibitz` site is offline

    Those of us, who read fanfiction in general and Spuffy fanfiction especially probably know Nautibitz. She is one of the most prolific Spuffy fanfic writers and famous for her mostly funny and smutty stories, including for example Older, Baby likes to Roleplay, At it like Bunnies, Heart Don`t Lie, Skin on Skin and many more.

    Nautibitz`site www.nautibitz.com has sadly gone offline. Maybe it is only temporarily, but as we are coming to a close of the Buffyverse soon and it`s been more than 21 years now since the show first aired, it is possible, that she just decided to drop out of fandom.

    Her stories (or some of them) are still available on Elysian Fields and on her livejournal site nautific.

    Yeah, I think thats gone for good sadly like so many others before it. You can still view parts of it via Wayback machine though.

      That's a pity. Nautibitz's stories are so much fun, and they were among the first fan fics I read. (Setting the bar pretty high, smutwise! )

        I just want to add, that there is only one of her stories on AO3. I don`t know, if she used to host more than just this one story on AO3, but if that is the case, it might be a warning sign, that she is pulling down her stories. You might want to save them as long as they are still on EF/LJ.

          In case they disappear altogether, and anyone wants them: I have saved most of Nautibitz' stories, as well as loads of other older Spike/Spuffy fan fic. When I first started reading fan fic (around 10 years ago) I used an e-reader, and I downloaded all stories to it in Word format. These days I just use my phone and I don't download anything anymore!

            Nautibitz told me a few months ago that she'd be willing to have her stuff go up on AO3, and I'm going to do it once we get the details ironed out. I'll "poke" her about it again.

              Any chance you can see if she'll include the second part of Power Outage which she said was already written when she posted the first part on her LJ??

                    That isn't uncommon for it to go off briefly. The fundraising for the site each year is usually very openly reported on the home pages so I would have expected to have heard about warning shots if it wasn't going to be met in time as they rally to try and gather the funds (as happened last year). So I'm expecting it to come back. It's a good reminder to check the funding of it though.

                      One can still donate for The Spuffy Realm. Here is the link:

                      https://fundrazr.com/91Kruf?ref=ab_A...FtUARhHFz3gFtU

                      I am a bit confused though, because it says, that they have already paid for the site to be kept up until January 2019 and now we only have November 2018 and the site is down. But it might be due to other issues than the funding for the server space and I hope you are right, that it will be back in a short while.

                        Thanks flow, I normally go through the site link so that's useful. Honestly, it often is temporarily off, I'd worry if it was still the same in 24hrs.
