Probably all my followers know this, but in case you don’t: ANYONE can get an account on AO3. You don’t have to be a writer, artist, or other fanart creator. All you have to do is request an invite, and currently I believe the wait is something like 24 hours.
Reasons to get an account:
- You can see all the fic that’s locked to members only! Especially important for sports fandoms where lots of people lock their fic for RPF reasons.
- You can comment on fics that are locked or have anon commenting turned off.
- You can use AO3’s bookmark function (which some people use as a rec function, for example)
- You can turn on the history function, which then keeps track of EVERY FIC YOU EVER CLICK ON
AO3! Accounts are for everyone! \o/
You can also subscribe to updates from a story, series or author, and add fics to your read later list if you’re too short on time to read that amazing-sounding 70k fic!
Friendly reminder! Request an invite today, start bookmarking and subscribing tomorrow. \o/
Correct! To see what you might have missed, visit the fandom tag in question and put the following in the “Search within results” field:
