...somehow I am guessing you did not notice that the harry Potter section, 
has  hundreds of thousands of stories  smiles.
The p option would be a fine idea, if it printed the entire 
formatted work like at archive of our own.  now it 
only  does chapter by chapter.
I doubt uget would produce more than chapter by chapter either since the 
fanfiction  links include a  /option for the chapter number.
May be more productive asking Ken to consider installing one of the 
fanfiction   downloader programs here.
Thanks for the ideas though,
