Artifact Storage Room 3 banner

Artifact Storage Room 3, a Sentinel fanfiction and fanart archive, is being imported to the Archive of Our Own (AO3).

In this post:

Background explanation

For a variety of reasons, the Artifact Storage Room 3 Sentinel Fanfiction Archive will be closing its door for the last time. Open Doors will be working with Elaine and Mab to import Artifact Storage Room 3 into a separate, searchable collection on the Archive of Our Own. As part of preserving the archive in its entirety, all fanfiction and fanart currently in the Artifact Storage Room 3 will be hosted on the OTW's servers, and embedded in their own AO3 work pages. Eventually the links going to the old site will redirect to the collection on AO3 so the works can continue to be found with their old URLs.

We will begin importing works from Artifact Storage Room 3 to the AO3 after February.

What does this mean for creators who have work(s) on Artifact Storage Room 3?

We will send an import notification to the email address we have for each creator. We'll do our best to check for an existing copy of any works before importing. If we find a copy already on the AO3, we will invite it to the collection instead of importing it. All works archived on behalf of a creator will include their name in the byline or the summary of the work.

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. Open Doors will then set up the URL redirects, and we will permanently close down the site.

Please contact Open Doors with your Artifact Storage Room 3 pseud(s) and email address(es), if:

  1. You'd like us to import your works, but you need the notification sent to a different email address than you used on the original archive
  2. You already have an AO3 account and have imported your works already yourself.
  3. You’d like to import your works yourself (including if you don’t have an AO3 account yet).
  4. You would NOT like your works moved to the AO3.
  5. You are happy for us to preserve your works on the AO3, but would like us to remove your name.
  6. You have any other questions we can help you with.

Please include the name of the archive in the subject heading of your email. If you no longer have access to the email account associated with your Artifact Storage Room 3 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 great; if not, we will work with the Artifact Storage Room 3 mods to confirm your claims.)

Please see the Open Doors Website for instructions on

If you still have questions...

If you have further questions, visit the Open Doors FAQ, contact the Open Doors committee.

We'd also love it if fans could help us preserve the story of Artifact Storage Room 3 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 Artifact Storage Room 3! The moderators would also like to thank those of you who have supported Artifact Storage Room 3 with your fanfic and wish you well for the future.
