Watchmen Kinkmeme, a Watchmen 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 Watchmen Kinkmeme
- And what to do if you still have questions
Watchmen Kinkmeme is a fanfiction archive for the film/comic Watchmen hosted on LiveJournal. Beginning in 2008, the archive was initially for anonymous kink-based fiction, but has grown to include all genres of Watchmen fanfiction. While the original archive will not close, The Watchmen Kinkmeme is being imported to AO3 by the moderator, Sail, for its preservation and to organize the archive and lend better searchability.
Open Doors will be working with Sail to import Watchmen Kinkmeme into a separate, searchable collection on the Archive of Our Own. As part of preserving the archive in its entirety, all fanfiction currently in the Watchmen Kinkmeme will be hosted on the OTW’s servers, and embedded in their own AO3 work pages.
We will begin importing works from Watchmen Kinkmeme to the AO3 after January.
