Have you ever gone back to look for a fic you read years ago and found out it's disappeared from the internet? We've all been there. As fandom grows and years go by, countless thousands of fanworks disappear every day—entire archives go offline every month, and with them treasures are forever lost to fandom and future generations of fans.
