Code, Layouts, & Other Web Resources

FOOL LOVERS w3schools TEMPLATERR Repth Sadgrl

Theme Kings: a site offering "Old School Fixed Width" website layouts and code snippets.

Interactive Fiction

Brass Lantern: an old website about (text) adventure games! Lots of cool links, articles, and reviews. Last updated 2010, though. :(

Textfire: a collection of several old adventure game/IF-related websites, rehosted on plover.net (a Linux-based shared host for several IF-related sites.) Some internal links are broken, but it's still a really neat window into the circa 2000s IF community.

AllThingsJacq: website of another cool IF creator, including reviews and transcripts from community playthroughs of old competition games.

E BLONG: website of Zarf, another well-known IF creator. Has a bunch of cool text adventures and miscellany.

Generic Geek Girl: website of Adri Mills, yet another cool IF creator. The "games" section has a bunch of fun, short IF to play!

Parchment: a JS-based in-browser VM for playing interactive fiction games!

Fansites & Fandom

General

File770.com: online version of File 770, a long-running scifi fanzine.

Fanfic Symposium: a collection of old rants/essays about fanfiction, from (mostly LJ communities) 1999-2006.

Golden Sun

The Lost Waters (very old Golden Sun fansite) The Adepts of Weyard midcatwmn (wayback machine archive)

Golden Sun Realm and Golden Sun Syndicate: two neat Golden Sun fansites with lots of good reference material. Golden Sun Realm used to have an eFiction fanfic archive, but that seems to have vanished sometime circa 2018. If it had a forum (I think it did?), that's gone too. At least Syndicate's forums are still archived, if only in read-only mode.

Homestuck and Adjacent

Farrago Fiction Spriteclad MSPFA Homestuck.Net

MSPA Forums Archive.org Thread Index: a huge index of wayback machine archived threads from the now-defunct official MSPA Forums. Includes multiple fanventures, a fanmade Pesterchum program, and Toby Fox dropping the infamous album The Baby Is You. (Yes, it was hilarious. Yes, he did get banned.)

If an archived thread link doesn't work, try appending a dash and the thread name after the string of numbers in the URL. (E.g., "mspaforums.com/showthread.php?22769" ==> "mspaforums.com/showthread.php?22769-Art-Forum-Rules")

Oddity Collector: Hosts two Homestuck fanworks -- Life Is Out of Season, a twine IF, and Mr. Tambourine Man, an ongoing fanventure.

The Legend of Zelda

North Castle

Other Fansites

MOTHER 3 / Earthbound Fan Translation: a cool project offering an unofficial English translation for ROMs of Mother 3 / Earthbound.

Hallowspeak: site of a (WIP) Hollow Knight conlang, based on the gibberish voicelines from the game itself. No publicly viewable vocab or grammar or anything, but a pronunciation guide and blog updates (including some tantalizing details...), and links to the project discord for more info.

Shrines, Cliques, Networks & Listings

Songworm: the website of Bob Kanefsky, another cool filker. Has a huge songbook collection, directories for links to filk albums, a directory of other filkers, and some miscellanous essays and other material.

Chimera Chords: a member of the Filker's Bardic Ring back when webring.org still worked. Boasts a small songbook and partial recordings of melodies for several songs. (Fair warning for eyestrainy color scheme though -- hyperlink blue and lime green on saturated purple was all the rage, it seems.)

The Filker With No Nickname: wayback machine archive of Mark A. Mandel's filk site and songbook.

As Inclination Leads Me: filk section of the blog As Inclination Leads Me, with personal anecdotes and some fun lyrics.

Seanan McGuire: Songbook: full filk songbook of prolific fantasy author and filker Seanan Mcguire, as part of her personal site.

Smol Pub: a bare-bones microblogging service by the same creator as Midnight Pub and Nightfall City, also available over web and gemini.
