My Mongoose is a mainly slash Sentinel e-zine with occasional gen content. Some Moonridge issues also contain fiction from other fandoms. Each story and poem is accompanied by a piece of art. Some of the stories were published in print zines, The Best of My Mongoose.

From the editor: "Sometime after the series was "off the air" some people got together to talk about the world that this show was said to exist and about the characters as they should have been. Well, since many of these followers of the stories lived many, many miles apart they decided to use a new invention that would allow them to bridge these divides - - - The Internet!"


In January 2022, it was announced that My Mongoose would be moving to the Archive of Our Own as an Open Doors Project.[1]
