Welcome to The X-Files Lost and Found Board.

Having trouble remembering the title or author of a fanfic? Search for it here. Are you a wealth of fanfic knowledge? Please, share it.
But when you post a request, PLEASE be specific in the subject line. Title, author, or genre of fic will narrow down the search and direct
people who may know what you're looking for. Generic or vague "Looking for a fic" subject lines are not helpful, as that's all we do here.
And while off topic posts are allowed, we'd all appreciate an OT in the subject line so we know you're not asking a fic question.
It's all about the fic, so it's all good. Thank you for your co-operation.

And don't forget to check out The Board Guidelines!

Re(1): need help: convert to epub

I use a program called Calibre to catalogue and store my fanfic, and it converts from all sorts of formats to others. I put everything into epub and send it to my tablet which reads it aloud to me at bed time. i can mark which ones have been read and tag them, and it's absolutely the best thing ever for fanfic hoarders. I couldn't manage my fic without it:
There's also a smartphone version called calibre companion which makes transferring fics back and forth really easy, but you need a computer to use the full program.

If you like i can email you that fic in epub version. I also replace lines of xxx or === or whatever with a html line because you have no idea how annoying it is for the tablet to read out a line of 60 or more of the same character (x sounds like it's saying "sex" 60 times and equals ends up sounding like "sequel" over and over until my head explodes.)
Let me know.

PS. I forgot i have an epub extension on firefox that i use to download posts on tumblr etc to load into the tablet. it's called epub press. It's handy to download multiple tabs into the one ebook, but I've never tried it on a long fic.
