This is the only website to read fanfiction on. It is very easy to use. You can search the work of your favorite fandom, relationship, characters and tags. If you don't have mobile internet, you can also download the chapters for later reading. There is a dark and low vision(bigger font) theme if you don't like the default black text on white background theme.
