Heliopolis is a Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis archive.

There are three separate archive sections: SG-1 Gen Fan Fiction Archive, SG-1 Adult Fan Fiction Archive, and SGA Fan Fiction Archive.

About

From an old version of the FAQ:

III. How did this archive come about?

The idea of the archive was conceived by a group of volunteers on the sg1 mailing list on the onelist servers. X-Lander, Diva, Veronica, Rubin, Christina, and Katie founded Heliopolis in August 1998. X-Lander and Diva serve as the Co-Directors of the archive.

IV.What is Heliopolis' mission?

Heliopolis strives to be the central depository for general SG-1 fan fiction on the Internet. We hope to be the biggest Stargate Sg-1 fan fiction archive on the web. This will benefit the readers by providing them with one place to look for new fic. And this will benefit the writers by providing them with the widest audience possible.

V. What kinds of fan fiction are available?

Heliopolis accepts most kinds of fan generated materials. These include filks, poetry, and stories of all genres and lengths. We will also accept materials such as planet guides and alien guides if offered. As of December 15, 1998 Heliopolis no longer accepts slash material as per an agreement with Area 52. As of October 3, 1999, we will no longer be accepting adult material on our main site. Adult material can be found on Heliopolis 2. More information can be found in question VII. [...]

VII. What happened to the slash and adult stories?

On December 15, 1998 Heliopolis agreed to collaboration with Area 52: The HKH Standard. All slash stories on our archive were transferred to their archive. All slash stories that are submitted to us will be forwarded to them. You can find them at Area 52: The HKH Standard (The Stargate Sg-1 Slash Archive) . On October 3, 1999, a separate archive was launched to house our adult heterosexual collection. It is called Heliopolis 2.[1]

Fan Comments

This is the GEN and HET/ADULT archive for the Stargate: SG-1 and Stargate: Atlantis fandoms. Updated frequently, it uses a version of the Automated Archive system. It could certainly be made easier to browse, but you can still find your way around, so it isn't too bad. Unfortunately, most stories archived there are housed off-site, so may or may not be accessible. [2]
