Not so sure what exactly we are supposed to put in here but I was just pondering....
a) In the Fanfics section, is it possible to add a section where members share H!P fanfics not here or not by the writers here. They can give the title, pairing, link and author and then the mods could contact the writers for permission to list their fics in the FanFic archive, which brings me to my second suggestion.
b) I would like to make it clear first that I really love the Cheat Sheet but, there is something missing there.
Here is where my Fan Fiction Archive idea comes in. We could start one which would be placed at the top, in between Home and Forum or Forum and Help.
Organization for best navigation would be like this;

This is a working title, though I suppose at this point it probably won't change. This is intended to be a sort of "teenage soap" featuring the girls from Berryz. Young romance abounds, from the innocence of Risako to the quite contrasting maturity of Captain. Miyabi is pretty much just along for the ride, and what a wacky ride it can be! Her experiences change depending on who she's around. Will she prey on the innocence of Risako? Will she fall victim to Captain's seduction? Will she ever be able to like Momoko? How long can she put up with the antics of Chinami, Maasa and Yurina? Since it's a soap the story will flow and change as it goes on, but recently Miyabi's found a new flame and there has been a shocking death that might undermine the seemingly inseparable unity of the Berryz crew and send Miyabi along a twisted path of power that she may never be able to recover from... Romance/Angst/Fantasy. It's Berryz, so pretty innocent, although there are some stark reminders of the realities of life.Pairing:
Miyabi/Saki, Miyabi/Risako, Momoko/Saki, (Chinami/Yurina, Maasa/Yurina - made these up), etc...

This was my first H!P fic. Morning Musume and other H!P girls are flown to a mysterious island where they discover hidden, dark, and magical truths about their ancestors that are meant to help them become "better" idols. However, Reina and to an extent Miki dig a little too deep and find the true darkness behind it all. Will Ai-chan and the others be able to stop them before it's too late? Romance/Horror/Fantasy/Drama. As you might tell, it's pretty dark and serious at points too.Pairing:
Ai/OC, Ai/Reina, Miki/Reina, Aya/Miki, etc...
Examples given: the 1- means that it is the first page in the Fan Fiction Archive
section. 2- Then the page you go to after you click into the Morning Musume/etc
section. Clicking the Chapter No. takes you to that chapter page which will have a link to the next/previous chapter at the bottom of it's page. clicking on the author's name takes you to their profile. We could also multi post fics like "Curse Of The Dragons" into the GAM
section but not post All Aboard into the Morning Musume section because "CotD" only has Aya as the only none Musume member.
Whew, lots of work, huh?
Then when we receive a 'Go' from an off-site author, we add their story to this archive.
Also, suggestion a) would really help and even save a lot of money(Well, for me at least but there might be more out there). What I mean is, I find a lot of fics that are not in English else where but they are the pairing that you will never find fics for in English or very little and they might be the pairings you are into. For example, I stumbled upon a gold mine of Miki/Reina fics but none were in English. I sent one to be translated by professionals but it cost me 0.06 US per word. Seeing as it was 20191 words long, almost 1300US. For real. Whereas I am sure some of us here speak more than English so if we contact these authors who might be able to release an English version, think of the possibilities.
Also, it would be the best H!P fic archive no? Some work to for those who might wanna give a go to translating these none English fics.
PMs are our friends though seeing as we can only post English here, ne?
So, what do you great leaders think?
And of course, if a writer here wants their fic to be added to the archive, they have to send a PM to the Moderator in charge with the necessary info all stated clearly, like title, progress, summary, pairings etc...
