OMG Fandom, Never Stop Being Awesome

While I've used AO3 before, I've never taken the time to poke at it in depth.

One of the great things about large multi-fandom archives like this is that the most random stuff appears there. I mean, there's a pairing tag for Arby's Oven Mitt/Hamburger Helper Hand. I haven't been this amused since I discovered the Minesweeper section at fanfiction.net.

Archive of Our Own

The OTW has decided to move the Archive of Our Own into open beta!!!

I wasn't planning on signing up for an account, since I only have one tiny little fic posted but, well, I've been writing a lot lately. I have 2 Merlin WIPs going on my hard drive right now and I signed up for [info - personal] apocabigbang to finish off that SCC fic I started writing in September.

Also, I'm a bit supporter of the OTW and archives in general so I just couldn't resist. So, should anyone want to read my one published fic off my journals, you can now find it over there

Anyways, I highly encourage all the fic writers on my flist to post their fics there. I know people get more comments on LJ, however it's a hell of a lot easier to find things in archives. Also, I always worry about where all the fic will be 10 years from now. Just look at Geocities. What would happen to fandom and our fannish history if LJ shut down?

If I get any invite codes, I'll make sure to post about it here.
