Yuletide

Yuletide is a popular annual rare-fandoms gift exchange fan fiction challenge, encompassing gen, het, femslash, and slash. The idea of Yuletide is to provide fiction for people who may never have seen any stories for a source they love, or have seen so few that they’re starving for them.

Importing the Yuletide Archive to the Archive Of Our Own had been planned for a number of years. While the challenge has been operating on the AO3 since 2009, it was not until May 2014 that we were able to actually move the original archive for the years 2003 to 2008.

852 Prospect

852 Prospect: The Sentinel Adult Fiction Archive contains fan-written fiction set around the TV show The Sentinel. 852 Prospect is open to new stories that adhere to the original archive guidelines.

Open Doors opened the collection to submissions by original authors on 29 January 2013, and an automated import brought in over 4700 remaining works on 10 May 2013.

Smallville Slash Archive

The first episode of Smallville aired on October 16, 2001, and people began writing fanfiction, including slash, immediately. Livia designed the look of the archive, Naomi provided the scripts that allow people to archive their own stories, Calysta Rose set up and installed them, and Minotaur generously hosted the archive at slashdom.net. The Smallville Slash Archive went live on October 20, 2001.

With Minotaur’s passing in 2009, the archive’s continued existence and maintenance became problematical. In an effort to preserve the thousands of stories in the SSA, the archive was imported to the AO3 through the Open Doors Project : Smallville Slash Archive.

The Foresmutters Project

The Foresmutters Project was the first test case for the Open Doors project. Foresmutters is a bibliography and collection of stories from the very earliest days of recorded slash, principally Kirk/Spock from the mid-1970s. It’s a tremendously valuable resource for the K/S fandom, which is still active today, and for historians of fanworks. We are hoping to grow this collection. If you or someone you know wrote K/S in the 1970s or 1980s, please contact us; we can find someone to help you transcribe or scan your fiction.
