Thinking about how a fanfiction fediverse platform might look. Something that supports advanced search and multi-chapter navigation. I don't know if this defeats some purposes of defederation, but more robust federation of posts (fics) would be ideal since all the content is fiction (as opposed to the implications of readily federating people's personal microblog posts).
I don't know how sepiasearch works, but that might be a start.
