The Wonderful World of Makebelieve or WWOMB is a multifandom archive featuring gen, het, slash and femslash fanfiction and original fiction of all ratings. Currently the archive is the home of more than 3000 authors and it hosts more than 28,000 stories. It is hosted by Squidge.org.

Back in the beginning the archive had this warning at the bottom of the intro page: "Do NOT link to this site without written permission. Under no circumstances is this URL to be mentioned in any mainstream media."[1] In 2002 the page archived fanfic in 206 multi-media fandoms[1] and that number has only increased. Sometime between then and now WWOMB has been converted to an automatic archive.

Fandoms

Most of the archived stories have a strong western media focus and there are comparatively few anime fanfics and RPF.[2]
