Again, as usual, sorry for the lateness, but search for fanfiction on Archive Team uploaded a huge dump of the site, 
perfect for offline reading, assuming it's still there. Be warned that it's 
very huge! Don't download on a slow connection or with limited disk space. 
I'm not sure if new stuff is added and I don't remember the upload date 
offhand, so probably a few years old by now, but still a huge amount of 
reading material. It's a full or nearly complete site dump, so should be 
navigable with any browser.
