Dave & Ken's Diner was a slash Starsky and Hutch fiction archive. It was the first archive in the fandom that allowed authors to upload their own stories. Authors could add, edit or remove their own fiction at will. This site housed slash fiction of all ratings. Stories of any rating or pairing were welcome.

In July 2016, it was announced that Dave & Ken's Diner would be moving to the Archive of Our Own as an Open Doors Project.[1]. At this time, the archive held 216 fanfiction works by 25 authors. The import was completed in October 2016.

The FAQ included a question about ratings[2]:

8. Your ratings are weird. What do the mean?

One Torino: minimal sex, violence and/or swearing; themes are handled in non-graphic terms.

Two Torinos: middle of the road between One Torino and Three: sex, violence and swearing is somewhat more explicit, but not graphic, as are themes of the story. BDSM may be a topic, but it is mild vanilla.

Three Torinos: explicit sex, violence and/or swearing; themes are graphicly described (see above regarding child abuse). May also contain BDSM scenes with expanded details.

Remember, this is an adult site. Warnings are provided for convenience only, and for those authors who choose to use them.
