I visited the site three weeks ago and it was fine, but as of two weeks ago it says "temporarily unavailable" and "this account has been suspended":
http://www.octavesoftheheart.com/sublime/

I know/remember from following links during the first visit that the owner/maintainer Chrislee was on LJ last December, but I've never spoken to them. Does anyone know them? I hope it's not gone for good; Sublime is my go-to B/A archive.

Also, hi! I haven't been here in a few years. Mostly left the BTVS fandom, except for sometimes reblogging on Tumblr. I've returned to it somewhat during the last few months.

Thanks for bringing this up! I hope you get an answer from someone here, since I've been watching hopefully to see if it would come back up.

I noticed Scribes of Angel has been down lately, too. Dark Star, if you're around, that's not for good, is it?

Scribes is down? Ah. Thank you for bringing this to my attention – I was expecting it, as the hosting I use has changed their system, and Scribes' coding is old now. I'll look into it, and see if there is anything we can do about it.

Octaves (and Sublime!) is on the same system, I believe. I owe Chrislee an email, and I can mention this to her if you wish.

Oh, thank you! That would be wonderful. I hope something can be done!

Here's a Wayback Machine link for anyone wanting to access it still (or until it gets resurrected).

I hadn't realized this one went down. We're losing our Bangel sites, guys!

Luckily, Wayback (when all else fails) and others (like was done with Land of Denial) seem to be cloning them. Though I suspect this outage will be more temporary instead of permanent.

That's great to hear, I was heartbroken when I saw they were down -- they're both such treasure troves!

Hello - Octavesoftheheart appears to be down again. Anyone know if this is permanent? Sad I have a number of stories book marked on there. Let me know if anyone has any insight on the status of this site!

I noticed this, too! If anyone is in touch with Chrislee, tell her I would be happy to make a donation to the domain renewal!

Similarly I would be happy to donate to keep this site up as well.
