A Note from the Archivist:
Please provide all the header details as specified in the
Posting Guidelines. EBoS uses the Automated Archive interface and these fields are mandatory.

On archiving WIPs:

    Due to the way the archive is set up, it is not advisable to post multi-part WIPs.
    • If you are posting a WIP but want it to be archived at EBoS, please email the archivist the FINAL copy of your story
    Serial stories, with parts that are able to stand alone (or substantially able to stand alone) but with a continuing story arc, CAN be archived as parts appear. Please contact the archivist if you have any questions.
On EBoS Archive submissions:
All stories archived at EBoS will be auto-generated to be uniformly formatted. For direct submissions, the archivist is able to accept:
  1. plaintext files - use double spaces between paragraphs! As the archive is optimized to convert and upload these files, this is the preferred format.
  2. inside an email message (no attachments)
  3. MS Word .doc (Office 2000 and below)
  4. HTML generated file - this can actually cause problems and is the last priority for processing submitted stories.
Note: Item 3 and 4 above would take the longest to upload into the archive, as some formatting will need to be checked.

There is no restriction on the size of story attachments sent to the archivist.

Required headers:
Pairing/s: All contained in your story must be listed here.
Universe: OW and all Open AUs may be posted here. (Stories in Closed or Conditional AUs may only be posted here if written by the AU's creator.)
Feedback: If desired.
Status: WIP or Complete
Archive: Yes or No to EBoS. <- (If yes, please include, either separately or in your headers, your story's Category and a brief Summary for archiving purposes. Category and Summary are not required at the time you post to the list, however.)
Notes/Warnings/Spoilers: If applicable.
