The Organization for Transformative Works and the Archive of Our Own are proud to announce AO3 has reached 2 million fanworks!
That’s right — a little less than two years after hitting the 1 million fanwork mark, the Archive has doubled in size. The exponential growth of AO3 over the six years since Open Beta is a testament to the passion and creativity of our users, both registered and unregistered, and your enthusiasm inspires the volunteers who manage the Archive and OTW each and every day. Without you, none of us would be here!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We couldn’t have done this without your continued support and engagement.
As part of our celebrations for the 1 millionth fanwork, we launched International Fanworks Day. We’ll be celebrating again this February 15th, and will be sending out a news post on January 15th with our plans. But we also want to know how you’ll be celebrating so let us know in comments!
