The Letterblade Library (formerly the gathering of fanficly links) was a personal fanfiction site. It was listed as a Harry Potter slash author page under the name Arkady: Harry Potter at Veela Inc.[1]

The gathering of fanficly links version of the page was an index site for stories that could be found at other sites, including The Dark Arts, The Restricted Section, Silvermoon, Harry Potter Rareslash, Dystopia, Detention, Scimitar Smile, Skyehawke Archives, and Empty Movement[2] as well as at Riddlefic, FictionAlley, and the Esca no Yaoi Mailing List.[3]


Canonlit N - fics not requiring canon literacy to comprehend. (I hope!)

Ah, the one true innovation of this site: the canonlit tag. As far as I know, nobody's used this before. It is my attempt to indicate whether one has to know the canon well in order to make sense of the fic. (There is more on the metadata in this site here.)

Obviously this is a bit of a judgement call. I think I've tended to err on the side of caution, as there have been a few cases where I thought a fic would be incomprehensible without canon literacy, and yet people who've never seen the relevant show have enjoyed it. (In those cases, I did go ahead and tag them as not requiring canon literacy.)

This tag is mainly here to benefit people who may find themselves wishing to read something here but not knowing any relevant fandoms. So here are all the fics which do not require canon literacy, just for those of you browsing under such circumstances. A little less confusing, I hope!
