Server Recovery Update

Here's the latest on the fic recovery process:

the fics are still there, but unfortunately, we have to rebuild the server and that section of the site before they're accessible. You should be able to find many fics via by clicking here. The review pages for all fics are still live and accessible via the Park.

This server also hosted our outgoing mail, and that's why you haven't received updates on thread subscriptions, new reviews, etc. That should be working by the end of this week.

We hope to reopen for new fic submissions for a few days before Book Seven is released, but if not, we will reopen for new submissions two or three days after the book comes out - the fic intakers need a chance to read the book first.

Of course, FictionAlley Park is still open for discussion, writing workshops, Book Seven theorizing and off topic chat here and you can enjoy listening to fanfic at our SpellCast podcast.

If you have any specific questions, please ask us in Suggestions & Questions or email the Help Desk at help @


  1. I can't accsess the Park forums, and i had a thread going... I can't get to the Suggestions and Questions either. Is something wrong??? I can get to the story page all right, but nothing else.


  2. Try going to - that should work. Let me know if it doesn't.

  3. I don't know if it's my computer or what, but I can't get any of the files on the archive site. It comes up with an error screen, and says to check here. Only when you do, it doesn't help, and when you try to go back and click on a portrait after that, it comes up with a random date's "New On ______" page, and all of those links just take you back to the same error screen. What can I do to get through the layers of bad pages?


  4. Hi anonymous - I don't know what to suggest. You might have better luck if you take the fic's url and bring it back to the main page at - that might get you directly to the story. Good luck, and I'm so sorry this is frustrating for you and everyone else! We're making good progress, though!
