yall ever heard about ao3s next of kin policy

..hmmm..

Who wants to be executor of my smut?

…is this supposed to be considered weird? I don’t get it.

I think it’s more that it was an unexpected feature. I’m glad it’s there.

Yeah I actually found it while prepping for brain surgery, and was incredibly relieved that it was a built-in feature and not something I’d have to leave convoluted instructions about or whatever. It’s a bit morbid, sure, but it’s a great feature.

…an unexpected but very appreciated feature.

This is a feature designed by women who’d been in fandom for decades, and who had faced the issue of, “X is dead, and we know she loved fandom, so… can we reprint her stories? Who can decide? Her family knows fuck-all about fandom. Who was her best friend? Do they know if she would’ve liked her story to be reprinted in the Best Of OTP Fic zine?”

Running across that once doesn’t make you think about a policy, but by the time it’s five to ten times, and then you’ve seen people vanish from the internet (might be dead; might just be not interested anymore) and nobody knows whether it’s okay to collect their fic in an archive or transfer it to a new one….

Yeah, the FNoK policy is one of the awesome things about AO3.
