The Itty Bitty Archives was an archive website during the height of the X-Men fandom, despite what the name suggests it was quite large. It would later merge with Alternate Timelines to become


The Itty Bitty Archives was founded by Kaylee in order to archive mainly Cyclops and Wolverine fic. The archives were announced on the usegroup on October 3, 1998[1], with the creation of the Itty Bitty Logan Archive, the Itty Bitty Cyke Archive and the Itty Bitty X-Men Archive. Two new sections - the Itty Bitty Misc. Archive and the Itty Bitty Bit O' Praise page - were added in December 1998[2]; in January 1999[3], following the responses to her "Faces of Hate" challenge[4] (cross-posted to both OTL and ACFF), Kaylee added the "Faces of Hate" collection, which would later become a separate archive loosely associated with the Itty-Bitties.

At some point around 2000, queenB took them over, increasing the size from "itty bitty" to "not so" itty bitty with a number of updates between May 8, 2000 and May 1, 2001[5]. She also widened the scope of the "Misc" section to add more Vertigo fanfic, per her personal preferences.

In June 3, 2001[6], Lise took over the archives. In order to assist with the updating, Lise asked a number of ficcers to act as content editors for the different sections: Paradoqz, Naomi, Andraste, Alestar, and Xander.

The Itty Bitty Scott Archive is happy to have Naomi as content editor.

The Itty Bitty Logan Archive is happy to have Alestar as content editor.

The Itty Bitty X-men Archive, because of its size, is happy to have both Andraste and Xander as content editors.

The Itty Bitty Misc. Archive is happy to have Paradoqz as content editor.

The actual HTML, archiving work and hosting is being done by Lise. All design aspects were done exclusively by queenB; Lise has simply taken that design over. Any problems or questions regarding the site itself should be directed at Lise.

It was during this time that the Cyke and Logan Archives were merged together to become The Itty Bitty Cyke and Logan Archive.

Lise and Alicia McKenzie eventually merged the Itty Bitty Archives with Alternate Timelines and Felicitas in order to create the domain.
