Have you considered Archive of Our Own?

.
This year, we would like to actively encourage our Big Bang participants to consider posting their stories to the Archive of Our Own. It’s a well run site that puts control over their own work firmly in the hands of the writers.

That said, our main reason for encouraging this action is that all stories loaded to the AO3 are automatically available for downloading for electronic readers in MOBI, EPUB, PDF and HTML formats.

To be very clear, we are only encouraging this action, *not* requiring it. You are still free to post your story to your own LJ and/or another archive instead of, or in addition to, posting it to the AO3.

We will be contacting AO3 to request new membership codes for any of our participants who are not yet members but would like to *consider* posting their Big Bang submissions there. Although AO3 is not yet ready to host fan art and vids it is working towards this end so if you are producing art for the Big Bang please feel free to request a membership code as well.

We would like to get an idea of how many new membership codes to request so here’s a poll for Big Bang participants:


Would you like an AO3 Membership?

I’m considering it, please request a membership code for me.
5(25.0%)
I already have an AO3 membership.
14(70.0%)
I would prefer not to post to the AO3 and so will not require a membership code
1(5.0%)



If you do *not* wish to post to AO3 but would still like to make a downloadable version of your story available to your readers, we would ask that you be ready to submit a Rich Text Format file of your story (Further details on file format will be provided closer to the due date). These files will be collected together on one website for the convenience of anyone wishing to convert the files for their e-reader.
