    Considering there are officially around 10 annex sites now linked with The Pretender Lives,
    I have found (So far after only a day of research) over 60 Pretender related fan sites from around the world. Amazingly, though most have fallen inactive since the time period they were founded (Most from just around the time the show had ended) they can still be found by search engine.

    The Category and type of website, as research progresses, continue to grow. It appears two third’s of
    them are Fan Fiction based. I even found 3 that were adult rated sites. One in every five were small sites created by amateur fans while the vast majority appear to have been done professionally by a group of them.

    I’m currently still compiling a list of as many as I can find and contact. (Project too big for one
    person if interested. Will send all data accumulated to date.)

    Here are some of the more noteworthy one’s I have found (So Far):

    GERMANY: Micha’s Pretender Page.

    250 EPISODE PRETENDER FAN FIC ARCHIVE!!

    PRETENDER FAN FIC COMEDY 🙂

    FRENCH: PRETENDER FAN SITE/FAN FIC/ANDREA PARKER TRIBUTE!!!

    THE PRETENDER CHAT ROOM (INACTIVE 8-10 YEARS)

    THE PRETENDER SEARCH ENGINE.

    ITALIAN PRETENDER FAN FIC.

    INDIVIDUAL AMATEUR PRETENDER FAN FIC PAGE (CIRCA 2001)

    It will be interesting to see how many can ultimately be found, categorized and contacted.
    (to be listed here.)

    This is a great idea as well. It would be great to connect all of the fan sites around the world. Lets go for it!

    A few more on the fanfiction front:

    Archive of Our Own’s Pretender works (this is related to but more inclusive than the “250 episode” link above.) AO3 is currently the second-biggest cross-fandom fan fiction site after FFN, and the biggest for adult material. Yuletide’s archive is now here.

    While we’re at it … everybody probably knows this one Fanfiction.net

    Shaddyr’s old fan fiction site (Geocities!)

    Virtual fifth and sixth seasons – Still in awe over the amount of work that went into this

    Another old archive, these seem to mostly (all?) be on Missing Pieces.

    There’s a lot to be mined on Ye Old Livejournal as well, although it’s often just individual stories here and there. Stuff like this.

    We should honour also the german Pretender fan fiction project “Licht und Schatten” by Jarod Parker and Engelchen. They wrote a 140 Part (5000 pages) long story with a very dark beginning.

    NEW!! click on image above for instant ‘point and click’ menu access to all the non-annex tP fan sites.

    This is the next phase of improvement until the tP Fan-mily official website menu pages are built!!

    UPDATE: NOVEMBER: Work continues on the ‘Finding Jarod’s Missing Fan-mily Project.’ As of this date there are 192 tP sites located so far. During this project several sites were lost to attrition. Since the show went off the air, 117 sites representing 43% of all tP sites researched disappeared from the internet.
    Hopefully some will be recovered from archives. At this time the remaining sites will be contacted as well as archived to prevent further attrition.
