GSSU Archive

Many years ago I created the GSSU archive (German Speaking Slashers United) for the German fannish contingent that I was a part of. The stories were in German and English from a variety of fandoms. It was the archive of the Querstrich mailinglist.

While this mailinglist still exists, our mode of communication has changed and moved to other channels like LJ/DW, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. By the same token people have started posting and/or archiving their stories other places as well.

Therefore, after many many years of maintaining the GSSU archive, I've decided to give it up.

It has been a very hard decision for me to do that. While I really loved doing it the first 7 years, I haven't really updated the site for 5 years now nor were there any people asking to archive their stories there.

However, I still paid the monthly hosting fee. And while it's not that much money, it's still money that I could use for other things.

I will keep the site until the end of the year so that everyone has the chance to move their stories somewhere else. I also still have all the files of every story, so if you've lost it you can contact me and I'll email it to you.

If someone else wants to take over the archive, they can contact me too. I have all the files, you'd just need your own hosting space.
