This week's featured article

The Accidental Warlord and His Pack, sometimes abbreviated as AWAU, is a popular on-going The Witcher epic AU series, created by inexplicifics. In September 2021 it comprised of 41 works for a total of 343k words (up from 22 stories for a total of more than 235k words a year earlier.)

The verse is composed of main stories which advance a complex plot, and of side-stories which give alternate points of view on the series events or add character backstory and smutty interludes. It is notable for including many female characters, especially many Original Characters who subsequently took on a life of their own in other authors' stories inspired by the verse. The author has also taken care to include ace, trans, non-binary characters, and more.

It is also notable due to the fact that the author did not consume any canonical material (books, video game or TV show) before writing, leading to some questions about the characterisation used in the fic.

The verse has inspired fans to create an incredible number of related works, set in the same universe or Alternate Universes of the verse. In Sept 2021, 70 works were listed as "inspired by" the first story in the series, including multiple podfic adaptations.

We've updated Fanlore's Wish List page!

Fanlore is pleased to announce that we've made a number of changes to our Wish List! You can use this page to list topics or specific pages that you would like to see on Fanlore, whether they don't exist yet, are stubs, or otherwise need to be expanded. New editors (and anyone else) who want to add content to the wiki, but don't know where to start, can also check this list and start on anything that tickles their fancy.

Here are some of the changes that have been made to the Wish List in this update:

  • Cleaned up outdated suggestions (e.g., suggestions to create a page that has already been created)
  • Added specific tasks for editors to take on in Maintenance section
  • Included links to relevant FanloreProjects
  • Added links to new editor tutorials and Help pages to introduction

We've also added a Pages that need more international focus section where editors can add any pages that are lacking in a worldwide range of perspectives. ​​For instance, if you know that fans in one part of the world have a specific take on a trope or genre, or that a ship is popular or controversial among fans from a particular country, and this isn't documented on Fanlore, this is the place to come for help, advice and input! This is also a good place to add pages containing material that needs to be translated into English. Contributions from international fans are welcome and encouraged!

Do you have any ideas for pages that don't exist yet? Have you come across any topics that you'd like to see expanded? Visit the Wish List and add them!
