Hatstand Archive or The Hatstand is an online archive of Professionals slash fan fiction and other resources (biographies, episode descriptions, song vids, and a master listing of fanzines with Pros slash content).

From the welcome screen:

"Welcome to The Hatstand! If you're wondering about our name, it dates to the early days of the fandom when a wise someone observed, "Bodie and Doyle are as bent as Cowley's hatstand." Thus was born the affectionate term "hatstand" for a Pros slash story. It originally referred mostly to sexy PWPs, but we're using it here for any and all Professionals slash stories. The Hatstand archives all slash stories that focus on the characters of Bodie, Doyle, Cowley, et al. Please check out our offerings via the links to Authors and Titles below!"

In 2008, the archive began an automated fanfiction sister website, The Automated Hatstand. This site permanently closed 15 August 2017. Please note that The Hatstand website with its many resourses is not affected in any way.
