World of X (also known in the German-speaking Philedom as WoX) is one of the oldest still active fan fiction archives that offers X-Files fanfiction in German. At the beginning it was operated under the Url xfilern.de by XFilerN and Steffi R., later it was maintained by XFilerN allone.

The archive is an exclusive archive, but the works may also be published on the author's author pages.

Fanwork Challenges were held regularly in the early years.

It's noteworthy that archive very early used PHP scripts, at a time when most pages were built as static HTML pages. After sign-up, each author can upload/submit their story by themselves. RPF Stories are not allowed.

Similar to Archive of Our Own, fan fiction may be downloaded in ePub format to read them on mobile devices and e-book readers.
