Smallville Slash Archive

Contains stories imported from The Smallville Slash Archive at http://smallville.slashdom.net

Will be a closed collection after import/maintenance is complete. Authors maintain control over their claimed stories in the collection.

The import didn't replace existing stories, it posted them separately associated with the SSA collection.

If you are 'missing' notifications or cannot claim some or all of your stories due to email/pseudonym changes since the original post to the SSA, please contact Support at http://opendoors.transformativeworks.org/contact/open%20doors for help resolving the issue.

If you want to delete your stories from the collection, you can,
BUT
if you delete the SSA version, the redirect from the SSA will break.

If a story is already posted on AO3, but don't want to delete the SSA version because you'll lose the redirect, then you should keep both for now. The AO3 team will be building a merge tool to combine the two versions into one.

Locked stories require logging into AO3. Authors, please consider unlocking claimed stories so people without accounts can read them.

Intro:

From the original archive's FAQ:

The first episode of Smallville aired on October 16, 2001, and people began writing fanfiction, including slash, immediately. Livia designed the look of the archive, Naomi provided the scripts that allow people to archive their own stories, Calysta Rose set up and installed them, and Minotaur generously hosted the archive at slashdom.net.

The Smallville Slash Archive went live on October 20, 2001. The first story posted was "Beginnings" by Nicole D'Annais. The one thousandth story on the archive was "Setting the Rules" by Shimmygloss, posted on August 17, 2002.

With Minotaur's passing in 2009, the archive's continued existence and maintenance became problematical. In an effort to preserve the thousands of stories in the SSA, the archive was imported to AO3.

FAQ:

Any formatting issues encountered in these stories are likely due to the SSA's posting interface and not the import.

Original posting guidelines from the SSA's FAQ:

The SSA does not host Real People Fiction (RPF) or Real Person Slash (RPS). If you have written RPF, there are plenty of lists and sites where it is welcome. However, the SSA does not host these stories, even if they are crossovers with Smallville.

The Smallville Slash archive is for Smallville slash: stories that contain m/m or f/f content. All slash pairings are welcomed, not just Clark/Lex. Crossovers with Smallville and AUs are welcome, as are threesomes that contain slashy interaction. Stories may contain heterosexual content, as long as they also contain slash. Het and gen stories that have no slashy content will be deleted at the discretion of the archivists.

Please note that a story does not have include sex to be slash. There are many G-rated slash stories. If even one character is thinking about having sexual or romantic feelings for someone of the same sex, then it's slash. Some readers would label this kind of story 'pre-slash.' However, at this archive, they are considered 'slash,' and so they are welcome here.

Do not upload gen stories that just happen to have slash sequels, however. Gen stories are not 'pre-slash,' even if they have slashy sequels. They are still gen, and should be archived elsewhere; the SSA recommends its sister archive, the Level Three Records Room.

Do not upload separate chapters or 'parts' of a story. You may post WiPs (works in progress) to smallvilleslash and ClarkLexFic, but the Smallville Slash Archive does not accept them. Stories must be complete before they are archived here. Please be aware that archivists will delete incomplete stories at their own discretion.

Rules:

This will be a closed collection created to preserve the stories formerly archived at The Smallville Slash Archive.

No new stories will be added to the collection, but the authors may update/delete/orphan the stories as desired.

The import didn't replace any existing stories, it posted them separately associated with the SSA collection.

If you are 'missing' notifications on (or cannot claim) some or all of your stories due to email/pseudonym changes since the original post to the SSA, please contact Support at http://opendoors.transformativeworks.org/contact/open%20doors and they will help resolve the issue.

If you want to delete your stories from the collection, you can.
BUT
if you delete the version imported from the SSA, the redirect from the SSA will break.

If you already have a copy of a story on AO3, but don't want to delete the SSA version because you'll lose the redirect, then you should keep both for now. The AO3 team will be building a merge tool to combine the two versions into one.

Locked stories require logging into AO3. You may want to consider unlocking claimed stories so people without accounts can read them.

Claiming and deleting a story from the SSA collection will result in a 'missing url' message when someone selects a story on the old SSA, effectively deleting the story from both locations. Claiming and orphaning the story on the SSA collection will allow the redirect to find the story on the AO3 collection without an author associated with it. However, because nothing can be deleted or edited on the old SSA archive, whether deleted or orphaned on AO3, the story and/or author can be searched for on the old SSA and the summary information will still exist.
