My Old Fandom is a multifandom gift exchange, founded in 2016 by 'myoldmod', for fanfiction & fan art in fandoms where canon has been closed for more than ten years.[1] The exchange is hosted on Archive of Our Own, with a preliminary nominations phase for fandoms. Dreamwidth & livejournal communities are used for administration. Fiction is required to be 1000 words long.
