For the one looking for fics from a certain time period with ao3 search - it actually is possible to look for fics from x amounts of days/months that have received high kudos. You just have to use the search function from the bar at the top and add the desired values to "date" (+ everything else) and hit "sort by kudos". It's not as convenient as the regular search but works fine after you find the right date terms to use. Hope this helps! :)
oh man! thanks so much!
@rationalhope i hope you see this
