    The Archive of Our Own (AO3) welcomes Table for Three, a Harry Potter archive dedicated to the Harry/Ron/Hermione ship!

    In this post:

    Background explanation

    Table for Three was founded as the definitive archive dedicated to the Harry Potter Trio Ship, featuring stories in which Harry, Hermione and Ron are involved with each other romantically. (This may be best summed up by a note on the homepage: If you're looking for the three primary characters of “Harry Potter” in a great writhing puppy pile, you've got to the right place.)

    In recent years, traffic and submissions to the archive have dwindled to near-non existence, and it’s become difficult for the mod to justify the considerable expense of keeping the archive open. To prevent these works from being lost, he contacted Open Doors to give them a new home on the Archive of Our Own.

    Open Doors will be working with Jonathan Andrew Sheen, the archive mod, to import Table for Three into a separate, searchable collection with its own identity. Eventually the links going to the old site will re-direct to the collection on AO3 so the works can continue to be found with their old URLs. We will begin importing works from Table for Three to the AO3 collection in March 2015.

    What does this mean for creators who have work on Table for Three?

    This is the part where we ask for your help!

    1. If you already have an AO3 account and have posted your Table for Three works there, please contact Open Doors with your Table for Three pseud(s) and e-mail address(es), so that we won’t import your works. (For instructions on mass-adding works to the new collection on the AO3, Table for Three, please see the Open Doors website.)

    2. If you don’t have an AO3 account but would like one to import your works yourself, please contact Open Doors with your Table for Three pseud(s), and the preferred e-mail address to send the AO3 invite to. (For instructions on importing works and adding them to the Table for Three collection, please see the Open Doors website.)

    3. If you don’t already have an AO3 account but would like one, as well as assistance importing your works, please contact Open Doors with your Table for Three pseud(s), and the preferred e-mail address to send the AO3 invite to. (Once your account is set up, let us know your AO3 name, and we can transfer your works to you.)

    4. If you would NOT like your works moved, please contact Open Doors with your Table for Three pseud(s) and e-mail address(es) so that we will not add them. (If you would not mind them being preserved but do not want your name attached to them any longer, please let us know that too--we can orphan your works instead of leaving them behind to be deleted.)

    All works archived on a creator’s behalf will be attributed with the creator’s name in the byline of the work. As we import works, we will e-mail notifications to the address associated with the work. When all works have been accounted for, the Open Doors committee will set up the URL redirects, and we will permanently close down the site.

    All imported works will be set to be viewable only by logged-in AO3 users. Once you claim your works, you can make them publicly-viewable if you choose. After 30 days, all unclaimed imported works will be made visible to all visitors.

    If you no longer have access to the email account associated with your Table for Three account, please contact Open Doors and we'll help you out. (If you've posted the works elsewhere, or have an easy way to verify that they're yours, that's fantastic; if not, we will work with the Table for Three mod to confirm your claims.)

    If you still have questions...

    If you have further questions, visit the Open Doors FAQ page, contact the Open Doors committee, or leave a comment on this post and we'll respond as soon as we can.

    We'd also love it if fans could help us preserve the story of Table for Three on Fanlore. If you're new to wiki editing, no worries! Check out the new visitor portal, or ask the Fanlore Gardeners for tips.

    We're excited to be able to help preserve Table for Three!

    • Public radio station WBEZ announced they would be producing fan-written minisodes of its historical drama podcast PleasureTown. "In minisode 1, we meet Esther, the town seamstress, who spins a yarn about her lost heritage and life under the watchful eye of the menacing Miz Janine. The PleasureTown legend continues... this time, at the hands of its fans."
    • Kasterborous reposted some Doctor Who Crossover fan art. "One of the greatest things about the Doctor Who fandom is their passion for all things Who and their propensity for wanting to mashup the Doctor with just about any other programme or intellectual property out there. From SuperWhoLock to Eleven and the Ponds meeting Capt. Picard and the crew of the Enterprise, it would seem there really isn’t anywhere in time and space the TARDIS can’t show up."
    • While an article at D magazine regrettably elevated fan films over fanfiction, it pointed to another Whovian fanwork, Doctor Who: The Soldier Stories, as part of an article on the “Fan Days” festivities in Dallas, Texas. "Comic books and entertainment in the sci-fi/fantasy wheelhouse tend to get viewed as escapist fare, a chance to get away from some of the more dull or soul-crushing aspects of the real world. That may be true to a degree, but it ignores the community and connections that form from an appreciation of the things that get discussed at events like, say, Dallas Comic Con. It’s a chance for the fans to let their freak flags fly proudly."
    • Fanfic writers got a little more credit in an article at Publishers Weekly which included them in A Look Ahead to Self-Publishing in 2015. "Gardner says she expects to see 'more real person fan fiction and stories about breaking news in the coming year.' Also, while genre fiction remains strong, she’s seeing a change in subject matter—'sexy cowboys' are giving way to sexy MMA fighters in the romance genre, and jinns are taking over from vampires as common protagonists in the fantasy realm."

    Where are all the places you find fanworks? Write about them in Fanlore! Contributions are welcome from all fans.

    We want your suggestions! If you know of an essay, video, article, podcast, or link you think we should know about, comment on the most recent OTW Fannews post. Links are welcome in all languages! Submitting a link doesn't guarantee that it will be included in a Fannews post, and inclusion of a link doesn't mean that it is endorsed by the OTW.

    La journée internationale des oeuvres aficionados est maintenant derrière nous. Nous souhaiterions remercier toutes les personnes ayant participé à ce défi que nous nous somme lancé pour célébrer cette journée! Si vous l’avez manqué, voici quelques activités que vous pouvez retrouver :

    1. Le défi des oeuvres aficionados courtes, #IFDrabble. Explorer le tag #IFDrabble où vous voulez, ou le tag International Fanworks Day 2015 (Journée internationale des oeuvres aficionados 2015) sur l’AO3. Nous partageons quelques unes de nos entrées préférées ci-dessous!
    2. Un petit oiseau nous a parlé de célébrations dans d’autres communautés aficionados, n’hésitez pas à jetez un coup d’oeil à la liste pour voir ce qui a été partagé!
    3. Fête des commentaires : Vous pouvez voir les liens vers les oeuvres aficionados favorites que les gens ont fait et n’oubliez pas de laisser vos propres commentaires, vous aussi!)
    4. Le 8 Février, nous avons organisé un chat en live sur le thème “Pourquoi Les oeuvres aficionados devraient-elles être célébrées?”, avec trois auteures : Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me et Racheline Maltese. Ces trois auteures ont commencé avec l’écriture de fictions. Des maison d'éditions leur ont ensuite ouvert leurs portes et publient aujourd'hui leurs oeuvres, tout en participant toujours à la création d’oeuvres aficionados. Aux côtés de Francesca Coppa, la modératrice, ce panel a ainsi discuté de la valeur et de l’importance de tous les types d’oeuvres aficionados. Si vous l’avez manqué, il vous est toujours possible de lire la transcription(en anglais).

    Międzynarodowy Dzień Twórczości Fanowskiej już za nami, ale chcemy podziękować wszystkim, który wzięli udział w naszym challengu i w obchodach tego święta! Dla tych, którzy je przegapili, mamy kilka rzeczy:

    1. Challenge dotyczący krótkich prac, #IFDrabble. Sprawdź tag #IFDrabble, gdziekolwiek uprawiasz fandom albo tag International Fanworks Day 2015 na AO3. Poniżej linkujemy niektóre z naszych ulubionych prac!
    2. Feedback Fest: Zobacz linki do ulubionych prac jakie zamieścili inni (i też je skomentuj!)
    3. Słyszeliśmy o uroczystościach w innych społecznościach fandomowych, zatem spójrz na listę i zobacz, czym się podzielili!
    4. 8 lutego mieliśmy okazję porozmawiać na temat "Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated" (Dlaczego twórczość fanowska powinna być świętowana) z takimi autorkami jak Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me i Racheline Maltese. Wszystkie z nich zaczynały jako pisarki fanfiction, a następnie zaczęły publikować profesjonalnie — i wciąż biorą udział w tworzeniu prac fanowskich. Panel moderowała Francesca Coppa, a uczestniczki dyskutowały na temat wartości i znaczenia wszelkiego typu twórczości fanowskiej. Dla tych, którzy nie mogli wziąć udziału, przygotowaliśmy transkrypt (w języku angielskim).

    A gdyby tego było mało, kilka prac z IFDrabble które wpadły nam w oko:

    4. Lo scorso 8 febbraio abbiamo tenuto una live chat a tema "Perché i fanwork dovrebbero essere celebrati", con la presenza degli autori Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me e Racheline Maltese. Tutte e tre hanno iniziato scrivendo fanfiction e hanno finito con l'essere pubblicate professionalmente — e tuttora continuano a realizzare fanwork. Insieme alla moderatrice Francesca Coppa, i relatori hanno discusso il valore e l'importanza di ogni tipo di fanwork. Se hai mancato l'appuntamento, puoi comunque leggerne la trascrizione (in lingua inglese).

    4. 8 Февраля мы провели онлайн чат с авторами Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me и Racheline Maltese на тему "Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated" (Почему стоит праздновать фан-работы). Все эти авторы начинали с написания фанфиков, потом стали публиковаться профессионально - и они до сих пор занимаются фан-работами. Вместе с модератором Francesca Coppa (Франческой Коппа) они обсудили ценность и важность всех видов фан-работ. Если вы пропустили чат, то еще есть возможность прочитать его запись (на английском языке).

    4. 8. helmikuuta järjestimme live-chatin aiheesta "Why Fanworks Should Be Celebrated", miksi faniteoksia pitäisi juhlia; vieraanamme olivat kirjailijat Cecilia Tan, Tara Sue Me ja Racheline Maltese. He kaikki aloittivat fanifiktion kirjoittamisella ja ovat nykyään ammattilaisia—mutta ovat edelleen mukana faniteosten tekemisessä. Moderaattori Francesca Coppan kanssa panelistit keskustelivat kaikenlaisten faniteosten olemassaolon tärkeydestä ja niiden arvosta. Jos et ehtinyt paikalle, voit lukea transkriptin keskustelusta (englanniksi).
