Hey do you guys happen to have a post or something teaching us how to look up fics on AO3? I'm new to it I've only ever looked stuff up on wattpad and I really wanna find fics that are interesting to me. I'm also new to this blog so hi.
no we don’t but i’ll make this one right now. okay so this is how i work AO3
first off you go to the site (obviously lol) and in the top right hand corner you can search for your pairing
hit search, it will take you to every fic for that pairing. then if you want to get more in-depth you can click the “edit your search” button
now on this page you can edit many different things, say you’re looking for single chaptered fics you click this
as you go further down you get to a section titled ‘additional tags’
this is where you can put things like “high school” “bottom josh” and so on. usually whatever tag you’re looking for has been used and will pop up as a suggested tag once you start typing.
now if you want to find fics with the largest word count for said tags you go here
that’s pretty much what you need to know when looking for fics. i know this is a bit messy, so when i have a lil more time i’ll make a more in-depth post. i hope this helped, and if you have any other questions feel free to ask (: -Madi
