The website closed on March 22th 2022. After years of neglect, a new post was posted on the website's blog by Marfil on March 16th 2022. A translation of the blog post:
FANFIC.ES WEBSITE WILL CLOSE ON MARCH 22, 2022
The Fanfic.es website will stop working permanently as of March 22, 2022.All data will be deleted and cannot be recovered.
At the time of its closure, fanfic.es had 19723 stories stored written by 8540 authors.
Because they're run by the same person, fans fear that the same thing will happen soon to Amor Yaoi.
Some fans have made efforts to rescue the stories but because of the short notice, not all fanfics could be saved.
Translated from Spanish
I'm crying because fanfic.es is closing. It doesn't affect me as a creator but it does affect me as a reader, because there were a couple of my favorite fanfics there.
That's where I started my readings, it was the first app of this type that I knew... ❤ there I found great writers that I now admire more... the nostalgia... they will always remain in my heart...
Aaaaand fanfic.es is officially gone. The web is still there, yeah, but you can't see nor access anything besides the "This website is closed, in the following days it'll disappear". Thank you Marfil for putting that sweet note /s.
Anyway I wanted to say thank you to you and all the people that joined to archive this small but awesome piece of the Spanish fandom!! It sure lasted some considerable years. Specially thanking because the people I saw crying over this web going down did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING at all (except saving their faves and such, but besides that? Archiving?? What's that???).Hoping that Amor Yaoi won't be treated by Marfil with that fucking uninterest, but I think I'm asking too much. I'm feeling that AY will meet the same future as FFes in a couple of years. Maybe I should create the Collection and all of that soon, just in case.
