It is not exactly new story and I am not sure if this made the rounds in fediverse but a few days ago won the hugo award on best related work. We have a huge community here but we don't talk nearly enough about this project.

is an unique opensourced project that is not male dominated and also not started by people who were fulltime engineers but fans who decided enough is enough and we need to own our servers.

Congrats to Ao3!

@eylul I don't think the fact Ao3 is fully open source is at all widely known so thank you for making this post!

@eylul Ao3 contains some of the biggest inspiration, even though I only read fanfiction and don't write it. I'm glad it's being honored as the massive influence it truly is.
