Also, what slash fiction should I read while reading them, and should I read that at a certain point in the continuity, or just do my usual thing and go on a fanfic binge once I'm caught up?

15 years ago, as a teenager, I wrote a fanfic about a sexual encounter and published it under my real name. One of the archives with this story has resurfaced on a new server, www.50megs.com, unbeknownst to the original owner of the archive. She's tried to have the page removed but to no avail; I've also been in touch with the new host of the site but have been told to just contact the owner - who no longer really owns it. What can I/we do to get this page down? [more inside]
