FanFiction.Net is the biggest archive for fanfiction anywhere, offering thousands upon thousands of stories, with a total length somewhere in the range of fifteen to twenty billion words. The website started in 1998 by webmaster Xing Li, it soon snowballed into something incredible. Its secret to success is its limited moderation and fully-automated system, meaning posting is very quick and easy and can be done by anyone.

South Park On FF.NetEdit
South Park can be found in the Cartoons category. As of May 28, 2020, South Park has over 18,000 stories. The earliest story is dated from 1999, but the first major stories in traditional prose seem to be dated around 2001, during the series' fifth season. Scriptfic was extremely common and prosperous for the fandom until around 2003, when FanFiction.Net deleted all script format stories across all categories due to issues in some larger fandoms, including Pokémon. Most script fic writers immigrated to Freedom of Speech fanfiction or gave up entirely. Since then, prose-written Slash fanfiction has become the dominant genre of the fandom. Some script fic occasionally reappears but it is unlikely to ever re-assert dominance.
- Although MA stories are not allowed on FF.Net, authors put post up explicit material anyway but under the M rating.
