1. What is the Basement?
Down in the Basement is the principal archive of X-Files slash fan fiction. The
archives before the Basement were Archive/X and MKRA/MSSS and all the stories archived
there are now at the Basement. Presently, fan fiction posted to the X/Story email
list is archived unless the author puts DO NOT ARCHIVE in the first few lines of the
story. Additionally, stories posted to various other XF slash lists will be archived
if they have "Archive: Basement" or "Archive: Anywhere" in the headers. Down in the
Basement will also archive any stories with significant slash content at the request of
the author and occasionally, the archivist may request permission from the author to
archive their story.
