Thank you for considering Fanmega!
This process can sometimes take awhile so we kindly request you to remain patient and to not put in more than 1 request. We are only able to curate fics from Fanfiction.net, Fimfiction.net, ArchiveofOurOwn.org and Wattpad.com at the present moment & sometimes the imported posts can become corrupted & contain broken characters. You are requested to take a quick look at them & edit out any irregularities.
What happens when I submit the form?
After the form is submitted, we will import your fics and upload it to your account. You will be able to change the thumbnail, edit the content, delete etc
We will include the source and display ‘Curated with permission from author’ below every curated fic.
If I edit the fic on the original site; Will the changes appear here aswell?
After the fic is imported here, you would have to manually edit the fic for any changes you make.
How much time is it going to take for the fics to show up in my account?
It can take anywhere between 1 hour to 7 days depending upon the number of fics to import & the amount of requests in our inbox.
Your fics will start arriving in short batches, several every minute to reduce the load on our server. We won’t be able to send any notifications, you are requested to check your account every once in awhile.
