thank you so much for the offer, my dear! archive of our own is the most wonderful thing. one day i will write an angry screed about how much i hate ff.net but that day is not today (oh ha ha wait i already did)
i do have the majority of my stories on ao3 for your reading pleasure. i wasn’t posting the e/r aus because they’re still in drafty progress but you can subscribe to me over there for finished stuff if you have an account.
i’ll try to post most of the hacker fic soon i guess because that’s like 10,000+ words now (what?)
Okay, eek. AO3 just posted my in-progress Ancient Greece Teen Wolf AU whilst I was doing some editing-type things. The Fury’s out of the bag, babies. I guess I’m doing my first WIP in conjunction with my first AU. After 10 years of writing fic, guess there really is a first time for everything.
Long has Stiles son of Hermes tracked the beast out of Hades. Twice they had met, and twice fought, and the creature turned cowardly tail and fled. Masterless, it was more dangerous; unpredictable, feral. It could not live, but it would not die.

I never realized how much of my self-worth was tied to AO3’s individual kudos emails until they were gone
This isn’t the first time Fanfiction.net has been at the center of controversy and censorship. In 2002, FF.net made the sweeping decision to remove works that were rated NC-17. I was out of fandom at the time, missed the notices, and as such lost a good chunk of my earliest work.
The first lesson from this experience is to back up your stuff, and save those favorite stories/fanworks you couldn’t live without. I know, I mean to do it, too, and will someday, I swear. A quick way to keep your writings/art/pics/manip/gifs/vids archived is to save them in Google docs or use a free hosting service like Dropbox or Sugarsync.
The second, and more important lesson: you cannot trust the internet to be permanent or fair. The internet is always the opposite of permanent and fair.
I’ve seen pillars of content like GeoCities vanish, whole archives swallowed up and lost. We’re lucky that The Wayback Machine and other online services record a lot of old pages for posterity. But you can never be sure. As someone who has worked in digital media, I can tell you a lot of places really don’t care if all of your stuff goes bust if they do.

DON’T DO THIS TO ME
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND
I AM A HORNY NERD AND I GETS NONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I. NEED. MY. SMUT.
What? Dear, dear tumblr: please make the migration over to Archive of Our Own. Therein you will find all the science boyfriends smut / stories you could ask for (also any pairing, kink, or ship ever), and you can sort by date published, word count, rating, #of hits on a story, etc.
I have a craving for Bruce/Tony this morning. I don’t even know where to look. Any suggestions/links? ;u;
And perhaps some Stark Spangled Banner too.
Lovely tumblr people, if you do not already do so, start hanging around the wonderful fan-run nonprofit Archive of Our Own (www.archiveofourown.org) when you’re looking to get your fic fix.
There you’ll find well-formatted frequently mind-bogglingly awesome works of fics and fanart. AO3’s strength is that you can always return to a set tag page a bit like tumblr (for example, here is the main one for our beloved Science Boyfriends’ pairing. Here’s The Avengers in general, here’s Stark Spangled Banner, etc.). Refresh that page, and if there’re new stories in that category, they’ll be there.
AO3 proves that nearly every pairing, ship, kink, crossover and mad idea in the world has been thought of and fic-a-fied, and it is glorious.
On AO3, you can sort stories by the number of hits they’ve received, wordcount, rating, characters, categories, kinks, whatever your preference and poison. You can download stories for reading in other formats and save your favorites. If you’d like to post fic there and need an invite, let me know as I have a couple. Requesting from the site shouldn’t take long either.
Reading and commenting don’t require any sort of sign-up, though, and once you’ve gone AO3 you’ll be glad to never look at fanfiction.net again.
