November 13th, 2009 by Laura Leave a reply »

An Archive of Our Own is going to come out of closed beta in the near future.  Before that happened, we got a snap shot of the site to see what fandoms were included so that we can see how their representation changes after they officially launch their open beta.  If you have no clue who this archive is, they were created in response to FanLib.

What is interesting about the list of most popular fandoms on An Archive of Our Own is that it doesn’t line up with what fandoms are currently popular on LiveJournal or FanFiction.Net.  It will be interesting to see after they launch if this picture changes.

  • I think An archive of our own provides a useful community service.

    And it has a strong science fiction and fantasy presence.

  • I'm not sold on it. Why use them instead of LiveJournal or FanFiction.Net? I also have a problem with how they folded in Yuletide, where authors were basically told that they cannot control where their stories are hosted. Add to that the hosting of chan and the confusing user interface? Not my cup of team but to each their own.
