Community description:Like fic archives, but on AO3
What is the Collection Initiative?

In the "old days" of fandom, single-subject fic archives were a popular thing. Fic archives for this one character, a single trope within a fandom, this one pairing. LJ and DW communitites existed which served a similar function: to round of fic that fit a certain category or requirement.

Searching for fic on AO3 can be tricky. Fics get mistagged, or the fandom is huge, or your pairing is drowned out by the juggernaut. Collections are there already, but are woefully under-used. So that's where the Collection Initiative comes in. AO3 users are encouraged to create a collection for their character or trope or pairing, or whatever, and announce it here. Your collection can be set up however you like, but open or moderated posting and joining is encouraged. Your collection can include or disclude any aspect you like.
