livejournal, fanfiction.net and ao3
which one were you?

I HAVE LITERALLY LIVED THROUGH ALL OF THEM WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT SAY ABOUT ME

lets not forget yahoo groups, and webrings, and individually curated fansites (on geocities, tripod), etc.

and this is beyond my time but also old school ZINES, bc fic and fandom has existed in analog since wayyy before the internet was even a whisper

What? No love for USENET? ::has a sad::

egroups!

egroups and yahoo groups and webrings and individual fansites yup yup, though I’ve read a couple zines as well

I started out in print fanzines in the 80s, when flamewars were conducted very slowly, via zine lettercolumns. I was never on USenet much at all, except I read some of the story archives. Then it was mailings lists, individual and group websites, then Live Journal.

Long ago, far away, there was no greater joy than logging into a telnet screen to read meta in white text on a blue background god damn that was some good shit.

abstract

East Coast Gazette has a terrible editorial focus and tends to use a lot of ALL CAPS but TOTALLY NOT BECAUSE OF HARRY POTTER. Stories in progress as well as snapshots will be listed in the "box full of snapshots" below, website archive for stories and assorted tomfoolery is glitterati.
