Nostalgia and Now
I'm a little spacey, so I have only just discovered An Archive of Our Own
, the "fan-run, non-profit, non-commercial" fanwork archive. Of the handful of Card Captor Sakura stories that I have read there, the majority of them were well-written, creative, and rewarding. Stories can be tagged as the author deems needed. I saw a familiar pen name or two from
Fanfiction.net. Do any of you use Archive of Our Own (AO3)? Other archives besides Fanfiction.net?
In a fit of nostalgia, I've been finishing "Take Comfort" and compiling all my CCS fics. I will probably put them up on AO3, everything from Mediaminer.org, my LJ, FF.net, and a few oddlings that I have found under rocks. The stuff from my "desk drawer," my earthlink.net hosted webpage, is long gone. No great sorrow. I also plan to make ePubs of my fics, just for the fun of it: an idea taken from "Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality" on FF.net.
What are you doing with your old and new fics? Anything?
In 2011, Madhouse started releasing collections of the anime series on DVD. (As you may know, CCS is out of print in the North America.) Dark Horse printed the manga in an omnibus edition. There is an excellent YouTube channel that has all three seasons, both movies, and extras
[LJ has been having problems, so several of my cross-postings have failed.]
