Only read what you want with Ao3 Savior

Ao3 Savior is a script for filtering fics in the Ao3 fanfic tags. It’s basically the Tumblr savior and xkit of Ao3, and you don’t need an Ao3 account to install it.

For those who’d rather filter out my fanfic updates, here’s how to install Ao3 Savior for desktop browsers. If you mostly browse the Ao3 fanfiction tag on mobile, read on for a hack on excluding my fics without downloading any script or extension.
