Synopsis: [Archivist] Some of the characters from the first thread, plus some interesting new additions.

Synopsis: [Archivist] Rooted in simplicity, pick a house and play, these two threads became the sole focus of the Fanfiction board for some time.

Participants: 7: Dust Scout, Ghosthunter, Dragoon Knight, Davidu, Beowulf, Barbarossa, Clemenza

Synopsis: [Archivist] The continuation to Factions, created in order to further the plot rather than due to flaming or inactivity. Recently ended, calmly and with a degree of monopolism.

Author's comment: It's too bad the thread couldn't have lasted longer. Still, at just over half the length of its predecessor, it managed to pack in a great deal of action.

Participants: 1: Anathema

Synopsis: [Archivist] A little difficult to classify. Like Kanly, this involved fights written by one person, and so only one person could technically take part. Nevertheless, there was enough interest to move the thread forward for three pages.

Synopsis: [Archivist] An idea that developed from FED2K rpg, this thread had posters battle it out over Fed2k itself. Spawned a sequel of sorts, Fed2k Battlegames!

Author's comment: [King Sard] The FED2K warlords was the greatest success of my FED2K themed fics. It was co written with Dustie and reached a length of 15 pages before it fell apart. I can?t really remember how I came up with the idea behind it, but it must have been a moment of genius. It was during this fic I adopted the name

The Backstory

The concept of a Fanfiction archive has been toyed with for some time, and was first official proposed by Clemenza in the thread Memorable Fanfic Threads. The initial list that was compiled in response to the suggestion was then posted, and can be found here: Memorable Fanfic Threads - The LIST!. This list was both scrappy and arbitrary, having been put together with the intention of later editing and modification, as well as input from the creators and posters. This archive is to serve as a replacement.

The archive is not complete, and will never be complete as long as Fanfiction is active. It will be added to, in time.

Threads are archived in alphabetical order, with franchises (threads with one or more sequels) being placed together by their group title, even if they are not alphabetically consecutive. Each are also displayed with a set of statistics, such as number of posts and participants. These will be described in further detail below.

The criteria.

Again, the archivist wishes to emphasise that the statistics given with the threads are not criteria to judge them by, but simply statistics to facilitate comparison between threads. These are given below.

Title: Self-explanatory.

Author: The person who started the thread. Note that this may not be the person who first came up with the concept, and that insome cases authorship of a thread is shared. Only one person can begin a thread, however.

Started: Date of the first post.

Last post: Date of the last post.

Runtime: Number of days the fanfic lasted. Note that some fics may have had long periods of inactivity before being restarted, these periods are not taken into account, and some threads may appear longer for that.

Posts: Number of posts in the thread.

Average posts per day: Number of posts deivided by number of days give a rough approximation of the activity of a thread. The higher the number, the more active it was.

Participants: Number of people who took part in the thread. 'Taking part' is defined as posting in character three or more times.

Synopsis: A brief outline of the thread's purpose, history, or details. Where possible, this is given by the thread's author. In some cases, however, the archivist fills this role.

Author's comment: The person listed as the author may choose to add their own comment about the fic. In those fics where the author has not commented, it may be for different reasons. They may not have time, they may be unreachable, or they may just not care.

Current status: Status of the thread at time of posting, being Locked, Inactive, defined as not locked but not active, or Ongoing.

Notes: Author and participant names are defined as those that are present at time of posting the archive entry. They may have been different at the time.

Final note: Though I've done my best to make this thread as accurate as possible, I am only human, and I am sure that there are errors to iron out. I ask that any incorrect links or inaccurate descriptions, or any mistakes at all, be brought to my attention so that I can correct them. This archive took a lot of work, I'd appreciate it if my inevitable mistakes could be forgiven. Also, I will be updating the archive on a regular basis, as long as people participate. Also, it sounds more official if I refer to myself in the third person. Any suggestions as to how to make the layout of the archive more aesthetically pleasing would be welcomed.
