Contents

JADFE (formally called "James and Darkangel's Forever Erotica") started as a Forever Knight mailing list focusing on adult-rated fan fiction. JADFE was started because the moderators of the main fiction list, FKFIC-L refused to allow slash fiction to be posted. However, the new list begun by James and Darkangel accepted adult-oriented Forever Knight stories from all couple factions, not just slash.

Eventually, JADFE became an age-restricted Yahoo!Group (at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/jadfe/).

JADFE Archive

Associated with the original mailing list was an archive for the stories that were posted. This was originally located at http://www.evil.org/jadfe/, and later moved to its current location at http://coasteron.net/ladylc/jadfe/. (Stephanie Kellerman hosts a mirror site here.)

Nominally still active, the JADFE archive last added new stories on 4 April 2003; but the front page was updated 30 July 2004 by the current owner, Lady Lacroix.

Organization

The stories in the JADFE archive are indexed in two principal ways: by author's name (alphabetically by surname), and by pairing. In addition, there are sections for humour, challenge, and crossover fiction.

Though ownership has changed, the title remains the same. We have tried to maintain the divisions as before so that you may choose the flavor of your reading pleasure. — from the index page

In addition to subsections for m/m, m/f, f/f, and multi relationships, a number of specific pairings are considered significant enough to have their own separate fiction index:

Partial Copy

On 21 May 2007, Mel Moser reported on her LiveJournal blog that she was unable to access the JADFE archive. In order to keep the stories available, she therefore decided to use her own back-up files to create a new JADFE on www.fkfanfic.com.[1] By 23 May 2007, Mel had contacted the owner of JADFE and learned that the site was back up. However, she decided to make the copy anyway.[2]

In June 2007, therefore, Mel made a partial copy of the JADFE archive in its own section of www.fkfanfic.com. All the Nick/Natalie stories from the original archive were copied over, but little else. The stories were provided with a completely new layout and index. In the few months after it was started, a few new stories were uploaded to the site, the last of them on 3 August 2007.

In 2013, Mel's site disappeared from the web. A mirror copy made in 2001 was uploaded to the Forever Knight Website Archive. It only includes the original www.fkfanfic.com archive, not the partial copy of JADFE.
