Hi Everyone, 
          	
          	I hope I'm not jumping the gun here because I'm still testing it, but I thought you all might like to know that the Beatles Fan Fiction Directory is back up, with a new design, working (hopefully) and taking story submissions! 
          	
          	http://beatlesfanfictiondirectory.com/
          	
          	I have taken the liberty of listing a couple of my fave stories by @jjdec8 and @kiwi747 while I was testing it worked - hope you don't mind! 
          	
          	If you'd like your story listed, please submit it! It can be any story, of any kind, so long as it's a Beatles fan fic. 
          	
          	Fingers crossed it all works! Please let me know if it doesn't! xx

So I've just recently started following you, a couple of days ago now, and I've been reading Shelter In Your Love. I'm on chapter forty or so, but may I just say that this story is astounding. I've read other fan fictions about the Beatles, and I hate to sound like a prick, but they're rather drab. Too mushy and unbelievable. But this one, I'm so captivated by it. So much where I could believe it! To where I want him to be with Hannah, in real life, not Pattie, and I love her. And what I love most about your story, what I look for in a book, is that I feel like I'm there. I feel like the character. And when Hannah lets some pick on her, I want to lash out at them, as Hannah. I feel like I'm her. Your descriptive sentences allow me to feel almost as though I've been taken back to the sixties. I love it. I just wanted to compliment you on the brilliance of this novel. Sorry to sound odd or obsessive, haha.

@TheBeatles_Hamilton Hello! Thank you so much for this lovely comment - and thank you too for reading Shelter In Your Love! 40 chapters in a few days is impressive, because they're not all short chapters either! I'm so glad you're enjoying the story. I've just finished it (a week ago) so it's probably the best time to read it as you won't have to wait for updates (my readers were always frustrated by the cliffhangers!) That's such a big compliment too - that it feels like you're there, because that is exactly what I was aiming for. When I read a fan fiction (or any story really) I want to be able to escape into that world, so that's how I try to write too. And wouldn't it be wonderful to actually be a part of that 1960s Beatle world?! (Sigh). Thank you again for this wonderful message - I hope you'll enjoy the rest of the story! Let me know what you think! - Lindsey xx

Hello everyone,
          
          So, this is the first week with no Shelter In Your Love update. It feels strange! So strange, I thought I'd post this little thing tonight for any of you missing your usual dose Shelter In Your Love (me! I am!) 
          
          This is a short story or one shot type thing from the John/Minnie version of Shelter In Your Love. It takes place in the same time frame as chapter 5 from Shelter (if anyone can remember that far back?!) 
          
          There should be a warning for adult issues/themes, sexual content and rock and roll. And as per usual, lots of angst and melodrama!
          
          This is not a new story (at least, it's not at the moment... lets see how it goes!) It's just a stand-alone, one off short piece. 
          
          Okay, so lets give this a go then...

@MissODell well then I'm SO glad I posted that! I adore John and Minnie. Both so broken but yet able to find a bit of momentary solace in each other. I'm all about reading more stories involving them!

@Jjdec8 Thank you! It was your comment on (one of) the last bits of Shelter that made me decide to publish it! It's a bit that I wrote a while ago and polished up this weekend. xx

Apologies for late replies to messages. I'm working my way through replying to all of you so please don't think I've forgotten you! I really appreciate all the lovely comments you've all left, it's absolutely overwhelming how much people have liked Shelter in your Love. xxx

MissODell

PS. (Delayed PS..) I meant to say earlier too, in the last week Shelter In Your Love surpassed Devil In Her Heart for number of reads, which I thought was rather fitting. Devil In Her Heart has always been the story I've been "famous" for, now it looks like it will be Shelter in Your Love, and I couldn't be happier about that! xx

Hi Everyone, 
          
          Thank you for all your lovely messages and comments on the end of Shelter In Your Love. I've read every one of them and I will reply to you all individually soon. 
          I woke up this morning with 'You and Me (Babe)' going round my head - the Ringo song which was written by George and Mal Evans, and that's just done me in all day..!
           I'm quite emotional... Isn't that silly? It's just a story! ...But I'll recover. It's Beatleweek soon... Oh, and I finally get to catch up on reading everyone else's stories too... 
          
          Thank you though everyone again for reading and everything else. I love you all! xxx

Well, here we are, at the end of a long road and at the end of a long story. 
          
          For the last time, (unless I rewrite the whole thing, haha!) this weeks chapter of Shelter In Your Love is now up! 
          
          https://www.wattpad.com/448692830-shelter-in-your-love-beatles-fan-fiction-111
          
          There is also an epilogue, and soppy authors note. Thank you to all of you who have read this story, and commented and voted. I have enjoyed writing this story immensely, made many new friends through it and I'm continually amazed and overwhelmed by how many of you have read it and told me you like it. 
          
          I've just marked it complete, so here is the ending - Chapter 111 of Shelter In Your Love. I hope it won't disappoint! 
          
          Stay in touch guys. 
          
          Love, peace and Beatles forever,
           
          Lindsey aka MissODell. xxx

Okay, faithful Beatle readers, here's where I am... 
          
          There is one - just one! - chapter of Shelter in Your Love left. (Plus maybe an epilogue) - as such, I'm going to take just a little more time over it and publish both the final chapter and epilogue next Sunday, rather than rush it out this week. Sorry for the delay. Hope you'll understand, I'm sure you will. 
          
          Gosh, guys, only one chapter left... I won't know what to do with myself anymore. It's going to be emotional! (For me at least...!) 
          
          Thank you once again for all your reads, comments and votes during the two and half years I've been writing this story. You've kept me going! xx

@astrangecupoftea me too! I feel so silly!!

Right,  with the exception of all your lovely comments on chapter 110 of Shelter In Your Love, according to Wattpad I'm all caught up with answering comments and messages from last week - however, I think there are several missing. If I've missed yours - apologies! Feel free to send it again though, if you want to. xx

Hi Thank you so much for reading this and for all your lovely comments all the way through - I've very much enjoyed reading them! Haha, I always thought it would be obvious Grace and Archer were in cahoots - I was worried I couldn't hide it well enough and everyone would guess it straight away. That's a huge compliment too, that it's inspired you to start writing again or start writing something new. That's probably the biggest compliment someone could give, so thank you very much. I hope you do! It's not in book form, alas. I've thought about putting it on Lulu or something similar before, but I'd have to be completely happy its *finished* and I'm forever tinkering with things! Thank you again. I'm thrilled you enjoyed it so much! xx
