Donna’s Stories is back at its original location now – donnas-stories.com. The front page is still up at the mirror, but a lot more is happening behind the scenes.
Since this site is still updated by Donna occasionally, and was discovered to be a little termite infested when we checked out the code, we’re hoping to give it a complete overhaul so that it won’t suffer an early demise again due to health reasons. I can promise that it won’t be as mixed up as my metaphors.
We had an emergency situation yesterday when Donna’s Stories wasn’t where it should have been. A quick check with Donna found that it wasn’t intentional, so some emergency surgery resulted in a mirror of the site at http://donnas-stories.xhumingpotatoes.com. We don’t have a lot of live site backups, but Donna’s Stories is a favorite so a current copy just happened to be on hand. There’s some tweaking left to do, but the site appears to be structurally sound. We’ll hang on to it as long as we need to and let you know of any status changes.
Anne Haynes was a popular author of X-Files fan fiction from the mid 1990s.
After initially publishing stories under her real name, she realized that having her name on fanfic may not help her credibility as she moved towards writing screenplays and novels. At this time she chose to remove much of her existing work from external archives and keep better control of distribution by publishing them exclusively on her own site under the pseudonym Anne Haynes.
Paula Graves went on to publish over 40 romantic suspense novels before her sudden passing in January 2017.
Only a small number of her stories are available on Gossamer, so it gives us great pleasure to bring you this site.

The Cutting Room Floor is a pre/mid/post episode archive which was run by Pete back in the day.
It’s a huge archive and although most of it has been uploaded, the tedious checking of links to make sure everything is there and not in a name that shouldn’t be displayed is taking forever.
You’re welcome to browse through the site, just please refrain from linking to any of the pages that haven’t been double checked yet. These ones will have a pink notice on them. If you desperately have to link to one and it’s under what appears to be a real name, just let us know first so we can fix it if it needs it.
We’re learning a lot during these early resurrections that will hopefully make future ones run a lot smoother.
The Cutting Room Floor is at its own subdomain: crf.xhumingpotatoes.com.
