before AO3, where were star wars writers posting their fics? lj comms? message boards? geocities?

i know that there were han/luke zines bc of the public backlash against that pair. have any of those been uploaded?

i'd like to merge the new kids with the old guard and hopefully find some good stories that i havent seen yet.

i think some of it was later uploaded to geocities, you can use archive.org to hunt down some of those pages. i wish i had any of the actual fanzines, i'm a sucker for zine culture tbh and i'm sure we're missing a lot of great vintage fanart

i don't know about han/luke, but i've been digging around recently for qui/obi and there were a couple archives hosted by squidge.org, most notably masterapprentice.org

so an assortment of archives and personal websites, which stayed connected using mailing lists, webrings, etc

i know there used to be a site that archived digital versions of zines, but it's been offline for years :(
