The Transformation Story Archive (TSA) is a website that archives stories that feature a personal physical transformation, or feature its aftermath. It is the nucleus of a small community of amateur writers and fans of transformation stories. The website was founded in 1995 by Thomas Hassan of Austria, who has since passed on the duties of maintenance to others, including JT Skunk, Jon Sleeper and XoYo.
The archive has a high proportion of transgender and furry wish-fulfillment stories because they were the most numerous at the time of its creation. Its stated goal is to become the premier Internet archive of transformation-themed fiction, and a showcase for amateur authors. It does not accept fanfiction.
Spawned from and by the members (and run by Kristina Tracer and Jessie Tracer) is TFNet, an IRC network for chat and story discussion. It is a counterpart to TSA-Talk, the long-running TSA mailing list.
