Welcome to The X-Files Lost and Found Board.

Having trouble remembering the title or author of a fanfic? Search for it here. Are you a wealth of fanfic knowledge? Please, share it.
But when you post a request, PLEASE be specific in the subject line. Title, author, or genre of fic will narrow down the search and direct
people who may know what you're looking for. Generic or vague "Looking for a fic" subject lines are not helpful, as that's all we do here.
And while off topic posts are allowed, we'd all appreciate an OT in the subject line so we know you're not asking a fic question.
It's all about the fic, so it's all good. Thank you for your co-operation.

And don't forget to check out The Board Guidelines!


I've contacted AO3 to see what they can do about it. From looking over what I've found by orphan_account, it appears they're adding fics from a lot of different fandoms (over 15K posts when searching on the name!) as a way of archiving them. Original author attitribution is included in the story header text. I requested that they include the original author's name in the title on the main page instead, as was done with some others I found. AO3 is a great resource for saving stories that would otherwise by lost, but I'm not sure how I feel about someone posting fics that aren't theirs when those fics may have been taken down for serious personal reasons. I know that "once it's on the Internet it's there forever," but I don't think a writer should have to fear a total stranger posting their stories without permission. Feel free to discuss. I'll let y'all know if/when I hear back from AO3.
