Dirty Laundry by Gibslythe is a very popular early Klance fic originally hosted on Archive of Our Own, that was sometimes referred to as "the Klance Bible" because it cemented a lot of early fanon for the ship.

In late July of 2016, several fans, primarily on Tumblr, began to complain that the fic was racist in its portrayal of Lance as a Mexican American and then that it was also ableist in its portrayal of a very minor autistic original character. Dirty Laundry's originally fast and reliable update schedule was interrupted and then the rest of the story was published in one shot at the end of October 2016.

It was replaced with the script of Bee Movie and then deleted in August, 2018.
