Fan Fic Archives

A Fan Fic Archive is a site specifically set up to house fanfiction.

As Livejournal and Fanfiction.net have been the major sites for creative works in the Supernatural fandom, they have acted as defacto archives for the bulk of Supernatural fan fic. Fanfiction.net is set up to be searchable by key terms, however on Livejournal, there is no way to search for a fanfiction, unless it is posted to a community that keeps some form of index. For example Supernatural fic which is the largest single fanfiction community and has a comprehensive tagging system, that means that the stories are searchable by author, rating, genre, pairing, as well as those relating to specific episodes.

The Supernatural Fic Link Archive tags all the stories listed in the spnnewsletter producing a searchable archive of links of fan fiction at delicious as of December 2009. Fics are searchable by author, category, rating and pairing. Almost 40,000 stories have been tagged as of January 2011.

Supernatural-specific fan fic archives sites have been set up and many authors are now using the Archive Of Our Own, a multifandom archive run by the Organisation of Transformative Works.
