Places like Refinery29 are noticing the importance of what fans do. "Urrata, who is studying English lit, film, and women's studies, sees femslash (the fan-art romantic pairing of presumed-straight female characters) as a way to do 'what fan artists do best: attempt to close the gap between the media we are given and the media we want.' Like racebent casting (fans adding actors of color to movies and TV shows that lack diversity), Disney femslash is a way of taking action rather than simply discussing frustration over the lack of representation."

The Wolf and Hound, a Sirius Black/Remus Lupin pairing-centric archive, is being imported to the Archive of Our Own (AO3).
In this post:
- A bit of background explanation
- What this means for creators who have work on Wolf and Hound
- And what to do if you still have questions
The archive was originally created in 2003 to make works posted to the Sirius_Black_and_Remus_Lupin Yahoo! mailing list easier to find, and the mods have been proud to host the many amazing stories that the list has woven over the years: around 800 works by over 200 creators.

- Fan/Fic Magazine wrote about how AO3 revolutionized fandom by looking at the events that led to the founding of the OTW. "A brief snapshot of fandom in early 2007: The first Naruto series had wrapped, and Naruto Shippuden had just started airing. Supernatural was wrapping up its second season with a shocking finale in “All Hell Breaks Loose.” Kingdom Hearts II and Final Fantasy XII came out only the year before, and Final Fantasy 7 fandom was back with a vengeance with the release of Advent Children. The world waited breathlessly for the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. And fandom on LiveJournal was on fire."
