A new friend over on the Rayne_Shippers LJ community gave me a link to chase down, in case I wanted to work on trying to recover some 'Firefly' fanfics that have been removed from ff.net and even from LJ: https://archive.org/details/fanfictiondotnet_repack

Fair warning: the files are arranged alphabetically by category/fandom, and after that by author, and in order to get 80 deleted 'Firefly' fics, I had to wait over an hour for the massive "F" zip file to download onto my laptop, and then it took around 18 hours to extract all the files in that zip file so I could find the 'Firefly' ones. I finally wised up and cancelled the extraction process before it got to 'Full Metal Alchemist' stories, since I was only going to delete those anyway, and then deleted all the fics that preceded and followed 'Firefly', in order not to take up so much space on my computer.

The deleted fics I was looking for and was able to find (there were many that were deleted prior to 2013-15 when these files were grabbed) were written by [profile] mik109 and [profile] thefriskyfire, but if you're interested in missing fics from other fandoms, it might be worth your while to take the time to download and unpack a mega zip file or two. :)
