Stayka's Saint Seiya Archive was one of the first fansites for Saint Seiya in the internet. It hosted fanarts and fanfics by Stayka and other fans and other resources and graphics such as as wallpapers, screensavers, screencaps, info about the series, Winamp skins or icons for Windows.

The site started in 1998[1] and became one of the few sources of news and fanworks about the series in English (which is known for having a much larger fanbase in other languages), uniting fans from the Spanish, French, Portuguese and Italian fandoms.

Last update according to the "What's new" section is from September 2009. The page stayed online until at least March 2018, when the hosting expired.

In May 2023 it was announced that the archive would be moving to the Archive of Our Own as an Open Doors Project.[2]

  • Fanfics by Stayka: A list of fics made by Stayka and some translations in French and Spanish
  • Fanfics by fellow authors in English: A list of fanfiction and fanpoetry chosen by Stayka that she considered to be of enough quality to be displayed in her website. Other rules for fanfiction submissions included no yaoi, no PWP or Smut (adult content was allowed if it wasn't the main focus of the story) and no Mary Sues or self-inserts. Parody fics were specially welcome. Stayka added at the bottom of the submission guidelines that she was willing to bend the rules a bit if the story was outstanding except for the no PWP rule and her yaoi NOTPs.[3]
