If anyone has a spare Archive Of Our Own invitation lying around, I'd be happy to offer it a good home with me. :-)

ETA: Got one! Thanks. :-)

And I should probably actually read your post before I make a comment, shouldn't I :)

Sending you the invite right away.

You caught me on exactly the right moment - I was just thinking what to do with the one invite I had, and then the answer appeared on my friendslist :D

And it's a really great archive - definetely the best one I've ever used. The user interface is just so much better than at fanfiction.net, and they've really thought everything through. The only problem right now is the small amount of feedback you get when posting there, but that should change now that the membership is starting to grow.

I just had a look at your profile - I take it you've backdated your older fics to the date you actually wrote them, since I don't think the OTW was around on 18 August 2003. :-)

All my fic is currently on LJ; I've cross-posted a few of them to FFN but it always felt like too much hassle to do it for all of them, and there never felt like much of a sense of community there. I like the idea of AO3, and I hope it succeeds... let's hope the public beta creates a buzz.

Yeah, the back-dating thing is one of my favourite features. I can post all my old fics there as well, for completedness' sake, without the fear that someone might think that that's how I write now :D

I've been cross-posting my fic to four different locations at best (LJ, my website, ff.net and few specialty archives), and it's damned difficult to keep track especially when you're like me and can't stop fiddling with the fics even after they're posted. I've already abandoned ff.net in favour of AO3, and I'm thinking that I might also ditch my website, and then possibly one day in the future only post links to AO3 on my LJ as well.

What is 'Archive of our own' ?

I explain that in my next post. :-)

Basically, it's a fic archive created, designed and run by fans.
