And Yet Another Reason TtH Is My Beloved...

So. Turns out that Twisting the Hellmouth, my favoritest of archives, HAS AN EPUB OPTION. Oh, TtH, how do I love thee, let me count the ways:

# Excellent archive interface that lets me view a story by chapters or as a single file.

# Allows me to filter stories by crossover fandom > BtVS character > specific pairing involving that BtVS character, aka, you can look at all the Anita Blake shenanigans or you can just gorge on Buffy/Nathaniel.

# DEDICATED ARCHIVE OF BTVS CROSSOVERS; NEVER HAS AN ARCHIVE BEEN SO SUITED TO MY WHIM. WHY ARE THERE 46 GILMORE GIRLS CROSSOVERS, WHO CARES, LEMME SEE.

# There are also non-crossover and even non-BtVS works allowed, as long as they're from one of the site's established authors.

# Really accurate, if pretty static, Top Tens, which you can ALSO filter by crossover fandom! (The site limits the number of favorites per user, so you only bookmark stuff you really like.)

# TRACKING OPTIONS. You can NOT ONLY get email updates for new chapters, the site marks which stories you're tracking, what chapter you last read, and how many chapters have been posted since. I can look at the Tens page and see a generic summary and think hmmmm, but it's okay! TTH HAS MY BACK. I read all 60 chapters already!

Basically, I love them for always, even with their mediocre search function. Here, have some links , OR HEY, THEIR CROSSING OVER AWARDS ARE IN VOTING NOW.

I love this archive too! :) I just can't figure out how they made it and if the epub options come with storyline or if someone else coded them in?

I did that about a year ago? I got the impression she or someone else wrote the code. But the only problem with the epubs is that they rely on a space between each paragraph instead of using indents. It's not a problem if reading on the computer but for e-ink devices there isn't that much screen real estate...

Love the epub option there. It's even easier than using the automatic ebook software I have for ff.net. XD
