Note that at the time I linked this, it was the latest feature and had the "latest feature URL"; if you get a different SYWRA, just scroll to the bottom for the link to the Magneto one.

Please send me reviews! Fan fic, pro fic, or comics featuring Magneto. I'll take 'em all. (Note: I will indeed post negative reviews of my own stuff-- it happens that Mirage liked "Heart's Desire" and Chris liked "Body Snatcher", but if you go to my Mystique page elsewhere on this site, you'll find a more negative review of Mirage's for my story "A Death In New Orleans", which features Mystique and Rogue.)

Recommended Reads:

Previously called "Alara's Picks." Anyone who wishes can submit a recommended read! Both Magneto fanfic and profic are recommended here.

The Hall of Shame:

In addition to mocking bad Marvel stories, the Hall of Shame lists fan stories that are too egregiously bad for this archive, what they do that's so bad, and how to avoid doing it in your own fan fiction. Submissions for reviews of bad Marvel stories featuring Magneto are welcome, but I am sole arbiter of whether a fanfic ends up in the Hall of Shame or not, and thus the Hall of Shame's opinions on fanfic are mine and mine alone.

The 1999 Maggie Awards:

New! Presenting the best of Magneto fanfic as chosen by a panel of four volunteers who were crazy enough to read everything on the archive. Come here to find what stories you should be looking for!
