"A Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far Far Away, George Lucas created Star Wars. And he looked at it and saw that it was good. And all was right in the world. But then, we saw that Obi-Wan doth look upon Qui-Gon with lust, and that Mr. Lucas was not likely to include that in the next movie, so we said screw it and wrote it ourselves, even though we do not make any money off of this. And all was right with the world." -- Keelywolfe
Sockii was the archive creator and owner until November 2001. She asked for someone to take over that had a technical background since the archive was running on a unique Perl script database and Lori took over.
In 2003 Lori, published a fundraiser fanzine on CD to raise funds for the archive's operating costs: Master and Apprentice Archive Fundraising Zine that was original content that was distributed on CD in support of the archive. In 2005 there was another fundraiser with Fuumin's art that was very short lived. As of January 2011 the archive had over 4,200 stories. There is also a small gallery of fan art as well.
In 2000, Sockii created a CD. It was a copy of the archive at the time and permission was not asked of the authors before the CD had begun mailings. A few authors were unhappy that distribution in a different format had not been cleared with them.
