(yes, both your original post and your nudge came through)

Am I missing something in particular?  I visited the site in
Lynx-the-cat and was able to get to a number of the fanfic works
without any issue.  Just to sample, I went in by Movie and sampled
some of the X-Men works, and went in by TV Show and sampled some of
the M*A*S*H works.  They all came back as HTML.

If you're looking for a scraper, the classic "wget" tool should
provide the ability to scrape a subset of the site.  You might then
have to do some post-cleanup if you don't want all the site-related
