    So this is where we can post fandom requests? I wouldn't mind seeing Dragon Age and Elder Scrolls on it

    Sure, done. They should be finished indexing here soon.

    Is there a reason not to index everything? Beyond having to input them manually I mean.

    Because there isn't a demand for everything I would imagine.

    Indexing takes continuous resources, especially for crossovers. I have a tentative plan to index more by more intelligently scheduling fandoms, but even then I'm not sure I'm interested in indexing all fandoms -- certainly not ones below some size (as yet determined) and even then I want to focus my limited time and server resources on the fandoms users want. If someone requests a fandom, I'll definitely index it. Otherwise, I've been focusing on the 20% of fandoms that make up 80% of the total stories you could ever want.

    New Feature

    Today I released an extension to the relationship search in Scryer which allows queries looking for, say, [A, B] to also find pairings of [A, B], [A, B, C], [A, B, D], [A, B, C, D] and so on. This works for single individuals too, so if you just want H/someone(s), that works. Excludes are also enabled, so lets say you really liked H/Fleur+many, but hate Hermione (you'd be wrong to, but you know, just in case), you can search for [Harry, Fleur], but exclude Hermione. If you're into moresomes, and like individually one person or another, but not together, you can exclude [B, C] to ensure you only get [A, B, ...] or [A, C, ...].

    It's not totally tested yet, so give it a go and let me know if you run into issues.

    I'm currently seeing only data that's 5 days old or further back.
