A working link to the entire story Basement of Debasement, apparently co-written by witling and saussy.  There is a portion of it archived under witling at Spanderfiles, but it appears not to be the entire story.  I found this link -- http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bmluser=jinjreads&keyword=btvs%7Cbasementofdebasement -- but only the sections by witling are accessible -- I guess the other journal has been purged.  Anybody have a link that works?  Or a copy?

I tried the link you have here and I can't get through to any of the chapters of this story too.
Did you try to ask the mods of *Spanderfiles* about it? Maybe the journals of the authors are only for people on their friendslist? Maybe the mods will have to ask the authors to give them copies for the Spanderfiles-page?
Maybe you can ask for help on the chatbox on spanderfiles too?

Oh, you're right -- witling's journal is flocked, but she'll friend you if you want to read her fic. But the other journal has definitely been purged. I'll check on spanderfiles if I dont hear anything here.

Which journal do you mean is purged? I tried accessing the last two entries in the memories you linked to in your post and both witling's and 7spoons's journals are f-locked, with all the entries of the latter locked but you could still try PMing them about access while the former has a friending post, Welcome to witling's LJ, and has been active on it not a week ago. (You could also try asking them about the full story, since they're the co-author that'd be something understandable IMHO.)

ETA: I missed that you'd already noticed the friending post, but the other journal is still definitely not deleted or purged, nor is the locked entry I'd tried to access deleted -- lj tells you these things pretty clearly, if you don't have access you simply don't have access (i.e. you are not on the appropriate f-list or, if the entry has been made private, you are not the poster) and if something is deleted or purged Frank the demon goat says as much. ;P

ETA2: The only fic I've ever read with the same title is the one hosted by SpanderFiles on angelfire, linked by another commenter; I've asked witling for access so I could try and compare it to the entries in the memories.

The one at SpanderFiles is the same story listed in the link I attached as "standalone (basementverse?)" The other entries I was able to access (witling's) seem to precede the events in the story archived at SpanderFiles).

And you're right --7spoons is not a purged journal. I had been looking it up under the name saussy, which is how witling refers to the co-author in her entries. But I see that the 7spoons journal seems not to have been touched for about seven years, and I never know the etiquette re: bothering someone who is so clearly not engaged in the fandom any longer -- it feels sort of weird. What do you think? And if you have any luck, please let me know.

Thanks.

Like I said, you could try asking Witling if you don't want to try 7spoons, but a polite no-pressure question in a PM shouldn't be offensive IMHO. :)

This is the link that I have:

http://www.angelfire.com/planet/journals/arvs/witling/basement.html

Is that not the entire story? If there's a longer one I'd love to read it.

It seems that it's not. The link I included abive shows a story in 14 parts, plus a standalone written in the same 'verse. The content in the link you provided is the standalone.

I'd love to read the rest, too!
