Another author page has been brought back to life. Jess M’s stories are a bit of a mess on Gossamer, with many of them listed amongst the work of other Jess’s or under a name she asked to be removed a long time ago, so this has all her work in the one place.
This site got a little bit of a makeover as it’s been converted to a mobile friendly design, which is something we’d like to do more of if possible. It was reworked around the existing images.
Jess is renowned for her MSR smut; one of her most famous stories being “the chilis fic” (The Airport), which was referenced by Gillian Anderson during season 11.

The Cutting Room Floor, originally managed by Pete Scully, was one of the largest X-Files movie/episode based fanfic archives during the original run. It started as an archive for ‘Flickfic’ (Fight the Future stories) and quickly expanded to include other seasons.
Stage one of the resurrection is finally complete. Archive.org, the massive trailer from whereunder we exhume long-buried archives, is rather hit and miss in what’s available for a particular site. There were over 500 stories that had to be replaced, over 4000 links that needed fixing, as well as a number of missing banner images. Fortunately the banners were easy enough to recreate, but there were background images in the tables on the index page that could not be recovered.
Stage two of the resurrection involves adding all the extra stories that should have been there but weren’t linked on the pages we had. In the meantime, if you’re looking for a specific post ep fic that’s not there, feel free to ask.

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.
Kirsten is a Dutch author who wrote fan fiction in both English and Dutch over a period of around 10 years. I have the utmost respect for people who can write in more than one language when some of us can’t even write a decent story in one.
Apart from adding a few links to make navigation easier an a minor name change, it was remarkably intact so little else needed doing. The site was originally just called The Basement Office but since there are a few of those around we’ve added her name to the beginning to distinguish it from the others. There are also a number of stories written after the site shut down, so we’ve managed to contact her and we’ll be adding the extra stories to her page soon.
Kirsten is the first author to appear in The Afterglow, a subdomain where all the smaller author sites can hang out together.

Afterglow is the hub for the smaller author pages we resurrect.
There’s not much there right now but eventually it will contain links to all the smaller author pages hosted by us.

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.

Jori’s work can be found elsewhere on the web, with some of her series posted at different archives. The Calendar Girl Series I & II, however, can only be found at Gossamer, but it’s difficult to work out the order, so we’ve recreated the original pages for the two series here. It’s important to note that CGII was never completed, so if you need closure on a story maybe just stick to the first series. The stories in this series cover the whole angst spectrum, sometimes with a carefree and playful Mulder and Scully but frequently delving into torture and angst. All but 2 stories are rated NC-17 so no kiddies allowed.
