    Summary

    [CW: Tag Vortex may stare back.]

    Tagging! How many tags does your story need? How can you tell which ones will be useful? As a reader, how can you use them to find what you want, what you really really want? When you keysmash in the forest, does it make a sound?

    AO3's beautiful and ridiculously wrangled tags do more than most people expect. Behold the mysteries, rejoice in the synonyms, and optimize your search results. Welcome to the tag vortex.

    Summary


    GRYFFINDORS. Go up the marble staircase and left, and keep travelling in that general direction; you’ll want to be going towards your left, because Gryffindor Tower is on the easternmost side of the castle, and you’re coming from the north/north-west. Once you reach the second floor, you can take a short-cut! Concealed behind a tapestry is a narrow staircase to the upper floors...


    A guide for people writing fic set in Hoggy Warty Hogwarts, who want to know where everything is, a first-person walk-through, written as if a Prefect is handing out pamphlets to all the poor ickle firsties. ^_^’ 


    ( Includes a map I made, back before the new illustrated editions came out when we still had no official guide, based on JKR's. )

    ( UPDATE: now includes a rough map of Hogsmeade! )

    Summary

    She almost, almost catches the glass in time. 

    She should be able to catch it in time.  If she can parry a sword in the same amount of time, she should surely be able to catch a falling glass, no matter if she’d been lax enough to let it slip in the first place. 

    She doesn’t catch it, and it hits the floor and shatters, shards scattering everywhere and the little water still in it splashing across the floor of Marinette’s room, and Kagami- freezes.

    Summary

    Adrien finds out Ladybug's true identity. Since Cat Noir has been thoroughly friend-zoned, he figures maybe he can woo her as Adrien. But that means doing it without his mask. And that's scarier than any supervillain Hawk Moth could throw at him.

    Summary

    There are some great quick guides to HTML on A03. This is not one of them - it is a comprehensive guide, dividing all of the available tags into the following categories:

    1. Text Formatting (in-line HTML)
    2. Page Formatting (block HTML)
    3. Tables and Lists
    4. Links and Images

    Each tag will have - at a minimum - a link to the w3schools page about it (so you can learn more), a code example, and the result of the code example.

    It will also introduce tag attributes, ways to further refine formatting, for a few simple - but widely applicable - cases.

    Summary

    The Archive of Our Own has an option to name a Fannish Next of Kin--someone who would gain access to your account in case of death or incapacitation. By naming another individual who can act on your behalf, you can decide ahead of time how you want your AO3 accounts handled going into the future.

    Maybe you want your works preserved; maybe you want them orphaned or deleted; maybe you want to have them open to remixes and related works. Whether your fannish identity departs with you or keeps on keeping on--that's a choice you can make. Learn more about how the Fannish Next of Kin works.

    A Fannish Next of Kin can be part of your bigger plan for your social media will, and can ensure that your readers have someone to contact in case of questions about that unfinished WIP or whether or not their favorite work will get a sequel. However you want your works handled, this option will allow you to have a plan in place.

    How to Podfic: A Highly Biased and Incomplete Tutorial by the-dragongirl

    Fandoms: Podfic Fandom, No Fandom

    This work isn't hosted on the Archive so this blurb might not be complete or accurate.

    Summary

    So, a while ago, some of my friends and fellow cast members of the @sansukhpodfic asked about how to make and edit podfic on their own. I created this tutorial for them, as a supplement to the resources already posted by the Sansukh mods. In the wake of the most recent @auralphonic episode asking for technical advice on podficcing in Audacity, I thought I would polish this up and post it.

    This tutorial explains how, once you have permission to record a story, you go about turning it into a podfic using Audacity. It focuses on technical and logistical details, rather than artistic advice, and is cobbled together from my own experience, my knowledge of the mathematics behind signal analysis, and other people’s tutorials. There’s lots of communities and resources out there that give advice on the artistic side (Auralphonic, for example, has an episode for newbies), which I recommend checking out.

    Disclaimer: There is no one standard method of doing this! This is the method I have found gives me the best results, personally, but there may be better ways to do this. I strongly recommend checking out other resources for comparison.
