Invasion of the Incestuous Body Snatchers


http://storiesonline.net/a/Notlef

http://storiesonline.net/s/57001/invasion-of-the-incestuous-body-snatchers incomplete ansd inactive 9/6/2008. Premier only, so it's been over five years since he's logged onto SOL. His profile says he's drawing incest cartoons and posting them at another site; he provides a url, no idea if its still valid after all this time.

This one was incredibly easy to find; selected the title, clicked search google, and it was the sixth item.

You will have already noticed that this is by Notlef, not Jack Savage, and that it was posted in 2008. The search repeated with " " around it pulled up four hits, total. The author page, the story listing on that page, and the first [only] chapter, and your query. So if there was one posted by Jack Savage in 2011 with that title, it has been pulled and not reposted anywhere else that Google indexes. At least, not with that title.

Guess his mother discovered he was posting her story to SOL! (Sorry, sick joke, seeing as how the author hasn't been seen since.)

The one by Jack Savage has the same title but is a different story than the one by Notelf.

Well, as I said, doing a precise match search on Google, that exact title doesn't show up anywhere else on the Internet that Google indexes. There is a caveat to that; Google sometimes doesn't realize what it knows, and things don't show up in searches where they _should_ show up. But when that happens, the only way you find out is when they show up in response to a search constructed differently.

I just tried "incestuous body snatchers" to see if more stuff showed up, but even shortened to just that, it's the same four hits. If it is out there anywhere, your best hope is trying that search on search engines that don't rely on Google's indexing, in the hope that they did a sufficiently different job of indexing the www that they found it. I haven't looked into the other search engines to determine which ones use whose indexing, so I can't give you any advice on that. I can say that Yandex doesn't localize their results the way Google does, which is useful at times, but I don't know which indexing service they utilize.

One last possibility. https://web.archive.org/web/20110622054008/https://storiesonline.net/login.php

This is the 2011 06 22 capture of stories online. I don't think you can get past this login page, even if you can remember what your user name and password were back then; mine have changed, the current one just dumped me back on the same page. I really doubt that they captured the login software and user id/password database; that's _way_ too secure for their archiving software to access, given what they _don't_ capture on regular web pages. So I really _don't_ think you can get inside to see if they actually captured the story data.

You _could_ try searching for stories by "Jack Savage", but that's such a generic name that you are going to be swamped with false positives. Narrowing it down to just him, assuming he's posted elsewhere using that name, is going to be very tough, and if you _do_ succeed, then you have to hope he's reposted it with a title that indicates it's the story you are looking for, while being diferent enough that my Google searches wouldn't have pulled it up.

We aren't going to be able to give you any more help than that. Sometimes things really aren't on the web anymore.
