I discovered Archive of Our Own just last week and was very, very impressed.

I’m delighted to see that there is an Organization for Transformative Works as well!

The first video I made about this archive was 18 minutes long and I still didn’t cover everything I wanted to cover. Props to Naomi Novik and co. for the fantastic work.
