The archive was established in 2004 and remains online as of 2013, though it has been relatively inactive for the past several years. It currently contains 174 stories by 65 authors.
- "[Femslash] may be in the background, a few kisses, etc. However, please no on camera sex scenes. Thank you. This may change if we get someone that actually would be willing to read/edit the story, but for now, no."
Additionally, the archive does not accept drabbles or "snuff", which it describes as "an underworld/black market movie that portrays a violent murder scene." Rapefic is also strongly discouraged, but stories depicting rape are allowed if it is "extremely important to [the] story" and is properly warned for.
- CS - "Child Safe themes" (G)
- PN - "Parents Needed" (PG)
- PN-13 - "Parents Needed" (PG-13)
- A - "Adult" (R)
- A-17 - "No One 17 and Under Admitted" (NC-17)
Each story must also have the correct and relevant warnings/genres attached. If the story contains rape, incest, or angst, dark themes SAY so, either in the warnings or in the authors notes (or both). Deception will not be tolerated. Add appropriate warnings as your fiction progresses as necessary.
