The Buffy Fiction Archive or BFA is a large automated (self-posting) archive for all Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel fanfiction and filks. It was founded by shrift in January 2002; she remains the archivist. It takes all genres of fanfiction; the FAQ describes the content guidelines:

You can post any complete Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel: the Series fan fiction. This is a non-exclusionary archive, which means it accepts any type of fan fiction, i.e. gen, het, slash, crossovers, alternate universes, filk-- the whole shebang.

The only things this archive does not accept are: a) stories involving real people, otherwise known as RPS or actorfic, or b) stories with explicit depictions of underage sex.[1]

It is searchable by character, pairing, genre and warning. As of October 2011, there are around 3500 works. The archive is still being updated.


The archive is recommended by Indri:

FanFiction.Net may be the be-all and end-all of unmoderated fanfic archives, but for BtVS/Angel fiction it's long been superceded by Shriftweb.Org which has an excellent search engine. It's the best place to look for new talent.[2] It's also recommended at All About Spike, which describes the BFA as An automated archive with a wide variety of fic and a great search engine. [3]

Huge archive of Buffy: the Vampire Slayer and Angel: the Series fanfiction. All genres, all pairings, all ratings. Browse by title, author, category, pairing, character, or search engine. Archive is automated, so updates sporadically.[4]
