Area 52: The HKH Standard (usually referred to just as "Area 52") is a Stargate slash archive. It accepts slash and pre-slash stories based on any Stargate material[1], however, there is no SGU fic archived. In the first years of the archive's existence, most stories were originally posted to Gateway, the SG1 Slash List. The archive is a sister site of Heliopolis.

Explanation for the archive name from its website:"What the Archive Name Means... Area 52 is the canon codename for the StarGate Project location in Cheyenne Mountain. HKH stands for hôkwe kanuöhkwa'shæ' hôkwe (man love man) in Mingo (a Native American Language from current West Virginia)."[2]

The archives has a site history that shows for each year since 1998 all the stories that were added to the archive.[3] In June 2009 the 11,000th story was archived. The newspost announcing that milestone gave more detailed numbers:

8812 are SG1 stories
2095 are Atlantis stories
102 are crossovers
1592 are F/F
8564 are M/M
853 are a combination
We have 931 authors and on average 15 new stories are added to the archive each week. Sadly this is a slow down on previous rates.[4]
