    Sad to see so many stories lost. I came back to read my old stuff and the thread I was going through was the same of course as everyone else's. I doubt it can be fixed but what is the Wayback?

    masterjedi343 The Wayback Machine is an internet archive that stores snapshots of old web pages at archive.org. I'll look up your stories and PM you what I find.

    If you want to. I thought I still had the actual word Document saved somewhere on a HD but haven't come across that yet, as when I wrote it, I copied and pasted them from the Doc to the page(smart on my end because if I do come across it I will be thrilled).

    This was never fixed. At this point I'm not holding my breath on it.

    No other way I know of unless the user can repost it or PM it to you.

    I think the only possible way is to try and track down the original author. See if they have a copy. It really sucks that so much was lost

    I sent a PM to the author, but it seems like AnakinsFavorite has been inactive since 2012. It really sucks that those stories were truncated because this site is the only repository storing older stories.

    Seems they were active on fanfiction.net but that was a long time ago. I wish you the best of luck

    The Wayback Machine had a crash that wiped out some of the history. It's not that the bot didn't go there, it's that info got lost with the crash.
