Welcome to the MEFA Archive

The Middle-Earth Fanfiction Awards ran from 2004-2011. The awards were founded by Ainaechoiriel in 2004 and Marta took over admin duties in 2006. A big thanks to both of them for guiding the MEFAs!

The Archive contains a listing of all awards competitors. There are links to the story (we do not host them here) along with some basic information about the story and the reviews it received.

Sorry about the mess. I had been working on making the site responsive for mobile devices, then had some RL stuff take priority, and now there's a plague... yeah, yeah, I know. Excuses, excuses. I ran out of gas! I got a flat tire! I didn’t have change for cab fare! I lost my tux at the cleaners! I locked my keys in the car! An old friend came in from out of town! Someone stole my car! There was an earthquake! A terrible flood! Locusts! It wasn't my fault, I swear to God! -- Jake Blues, The Blues Brothers.

But, on the bright side I'm taking a class to get updated on all the new web design shinies, so maybe this thing will actually look better in the next few months. And I haven't forgotten about the Yahoo Groups archive, either! It's still on the To Do list.

Keep your distance and stay safe and healthy everyone! -- Aranel

The MEFA Archive Group

The Awards are over, but there is still an Archive to maintain and history to record. If you would like to help out with preserving MEFA history, or if you would just like to reconnect with other MEFA participants, you can join the MEFA Archive group at https://groups.io/g/MEFAwards.

The MEFA Yahoo Groups

The MEFAs were first run in a Yahoo Group and it remained the main forum for communication throughout the MEFA's history. Yahoo decided to shut down Yahoo Groups in December 2019. The MEFAwards and mefa-discussion groups have been backed up and are available to read here at the MEFA Archive.

Updating Story Links

If you need to update the links to your stories, or you find a story in the archive with broken links, please contact Aranel at araneltook@mefawards.org and/or join the MEFA Archive group to post an update request.

Since we don't store any of the stories here at the archive, we rely on keeping links up-to-date to keep the stories accessible. If your stories need a new home, Archive of Our Own (AO3) is a multi-fandom archive that is dedicated to the preservation of fandom history.

MEFAwards Archive To Do List

If you would like to help out with preserving MEFA history, there are some tasks that I could use help with. If you can help out with anything, contact Aranel at araneltook@mefawards.org and/or join the MEFA Archive group.
