Gertie's X-Files MSR FanFic Archive is an archive for romantic/angst Mulder/Scully fanfic.


The page was created on April 19, 1997, closed on May 16, 1998, reopened on February 1, 1999, and finally closed on May 15, 2003. Gertie continued hosting the site online at shippers.fredfarm.com until 2018. [1] A restored, archived version of the site was reuploaded in 2018 as part of an X-Files fanfic site restoration project by x-sites.org.

It was never open to submissions and all archived stories were picked by the archivist who only posted those stories that in her opinion were of the highest quality of X/F FanFic.[1]

A 1997 Review

Gertie is a relative newcomer to the net, but you certainly couldn't tell from her webpages! As she says:

My page was born on April 19, 1997 with 3 pictures of David Duchovny and a link to the Gossamer Archive, my favorite place to hang out on the web. I started bookmarking my favorite stories, but since the WebTV favorites capability was only 32, I decided to start posting stories on my page and began a FanFic page of my own. My favorite stories are ANGST and MSR, so I decided to use those two topics to divide my favorites up. To tell you the truth, I really started up my FanFic page for my own resourses, but I got so much positive feedback, it kind of snowballed from there! I am currently updating both the Romance page and the ANGST page (both of which I have had to split into two pages because of size) once, or sometimes, twice a week, and have recently added a Viewers' Choice page for all the "Regulars."

What is truly amazing about this is that Gertie has done all this using WEBTV!

About 4 months ago my husband and I bought a WebTV Terminal ... I started out in a X/Files chatroom and was told that WebTV users could not make Homepages. So, I set out to see for myself! While WebTV does limit me quite a bit, (for example, I do not have the "cut and paste" capability and cannot download my own photos or create banners) I think I've proved that it can be done! :)
You go, girl! [2]
