I think you guys know that I love and support the AO3, but that I also have a special place in my heart for individual fandom archives. For my fellow lovers of fandom-specific archives, the awesome [personal profile] nrrrdy_grrrl has done a very cool thing:

This is wonderful! Thanks for sharing the link. I hope Nrrrdy grrrl reads this, I don't see a way to leave her a message. A lot of work went into this project.

What a lovely thing.

It has never surprised me that there are people who write, art, vid, etc. for love, but fandom's indexers and archivists and comm mods and newsletter compilers -- sometimes when I am down on human nature I think about all these people and it cheers me up no end.

I know what you mean. It's a good thing to remember, especially when other things in fandom are not so happy-making.

Very cool. Interesting that Highlander wasn't listed at in the archive index. But Lancer was and I'm a huge past fan. I feel like I've just found Christmas again.

I had it under "The" Highlander but Killa clued me in.

Very cool indeed! I'm in love with it already!.:)

A salute to archivers. I'm ever so grateful when someone takes these rather massive projects on.

Thank you for the link!

Isn't it amazing, sweetie! She sent me a link and I immediately wrote back to tell her how fabulous I thought it was! I can see many. many hours of happy browsing using it. :)

Oh, so cool!!

Oh, this is wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing this, Killa! It reminds me of the beginnings of internet fandom -- what was that fabulous page that collected links to every fannish page online, way back at the end of the Nineties? I found my fanfeet on the Web almost entirely by following links from that site. I feel just as grateful to nrrrdygrrrl for this as I did to whoever it was that made that long-ago page.

I relied on those sites, too- exactly what I was thinking about. Thank you sincerely.

Your links are always ever so helpful, Killa. Thanks for sharing. And much thanks to nrrrdy grrrl for compiling the index. This is great.

Two thumbs up! I can take no credit for the actual work and thought involved, but I'm all too happy to share the link. :)

Thank you SO much for sharing this. I had a computer meltdown and lost 20+ years of fic. I might be able to find some of it through this fantastic resource.
