Melvin's Mauve Mansion of Manlove was a personal slash fanfiction site. It highlighted badfic. It was one of many similar sites that sprang up during this time.

Welcome to Melvin's Mauve Mansion of Manlove! This is the home of a Kronos we do not often see: sensitive, caring, and in love. A man appalled by his past deeds of evil, driven to do penance, saved from vicious insanity by Methos, the horseman of his dreams. A man torn by his passions and baser instincts who dreams of nothing more than holding his snugglebunny in his arms, cuddling by the fire, while Celine Dion croons softly in the background. A man who - well, read for yourself.


A comment at Citizens Against Bad Slash:

More intentional badfic. It seems that this would be hard to pull off and do well, and I don't trust 90% of the slash authors I know to be able to do it, so I haven't read any of the stories here. You can't make me. Stop it. You're not the boss of me. [1]

A comment in 2000:

Melvin's Mauve Mansion of Manlove has a collection of stories by different authors, mostly Highlander and X-Files. Some are just bad, and not very funny. I can't bear to read deliberate spelling and grammatical errors; it hurts too much. However, Diary of a Horseman is absolutely hysterical. [HL, raping, pillaging, humor, crossover] Something of Interest is kinda hot. The fact that I find it more arousing than humorous probably says more about me than about the story. [XF, gunsex, videotape] "The Dream" and "Sewer Rat" are short Mulder/Krycek things. Kinda funny. [2]
