I love AO3 and I especially love the download feature so I can grab longer works and put them on my e-reader. Free bedtime reading for the win! I generally download in epub format and am overall satisfied with the results with one small caveat.

The metadata for a downloaded epub contains the fic title and the author name. However I'm in a lot of fandoms and tend to upload a lot of fic to my ereader in one go a few times a year rather than occasional updates regularly. Then I often have no idea, when I come to read some of my recently uploaded fic, which fic is which – ie which fandom, without opening several new fics until I find the one I want.

I'm currently saving an epub as fictitle-fandom-author.epub, then opening the downloaded epub in calibre, adding the fandom to the title metadata, and converting to an epub (ie making a copy of the epub with the new title) so when I look on my reader I can see the amended title.

So: Title becomes Title-Fandom and displays as
Title-Fandom (by) Fic Author on my ereader.

There has to be an easier way to do this? Could this be a possible adaptation to the download feature? Maybe an opt-in one?
