Lurker, wannabe IRL archivist (current IRL librarian), fandom history nerd. I love old fansites, meta, and fanzines.

Leave a note in my talk if you wanna say hello~

Current Project

September 2019: What's up with the 2000s Star Wars fandom pages? I'm not even really IN that fandom, now or then! Well: I was inspired by a meta essay written earlier this year (THE PREQUEL TRILOGY IN THE 2000s -- A WOMAN-RUN STAR WARS FANDOM) which specifically mentioned that a lot of early sites and fanworks, women-created and maintained, are completely gone. Furthermore, the fandom memory is that the early Prequel movies sucked, everybody hated them, and all the people who DID like them are Vader fanboys.

Uh, no. I was totally on the peripheral to the Star Wars fandom at the time, and even I remember the masses of fansites about costumes, characters, fan theories, etc. So: I want to find as many of those sites as possible (especially ones centered on Padme/her handmaidens) and make pages for them on Fanlore. It's kind of a pain in the butt, since a lot of site were created in 1999-2001, died off quickly, and were barely archived on Wayback (or other sites).

If you were in the Prequel fandom in 1999-2004, please ADD INFORMATION! I don't even want to think about The Phantom Menace page right now...

To Do

Disappeared Sites?

Found references, Wayback links don't work.

Links so I don't go nuts editing stuff
