Sallie safe is an Philedom (X-Files fandom) term which was used as a content rating in early X-Files fanfiction, especially from the 1990s. The origin of the term is an early X-Files beta, Salliejohns, who refused to read fic with torture or heavy angst.
"At that point, I take our two heroes on a different
journey--one that is guaranteed to be 99.9% sallie-safe.
Many thanks to sallie for her support and wonderful beta work."The disclaimer to I Was Thinking About You (1/2) PG13 MSR/Casefile by Katie Phillips by Katie Phillips
Sallie usually acts as Part 2 of my beta team. However, since I wrote a story that isn't Sallie-safe, she could not participate in the beta process. I missed ya, honey! Hope to catch ya with the next one. Author notes for All of Life's Etcetera by Rae
