Rawhide-fic, a Rawhide fanfiction 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 Rawhide-fic
- And what to do if you still have questions
The fandom for Rawhide, a show from 1959 about a cattle drive, is small but enduring. This collection of stories dates back to the year 2003 when the rawhide-fic group was created on Yahoo Groups for members of the fandom to share and talk about the stories they created around this never-ending cattle drive. When Yahoo Groups announced that it was closing down, the group began looking for a new trailhead.
Open Doors will be working with Grey Lupous to import Rawhide-fic into a separate, searchable collection on the Archive of Our Own.
We will begin importing works from Rawhide-fic to the AO3 after November.
