attempted to cover most of the archives and other "X-Files"-
= Fanfic archives =
to probably 80 percent of all the XF fanfic ever written, Gossamer is
in reality several separate sites — three mirror sites of the main story
archive, along with separate sections for unfinished stories and "specialty"
stories such as poems and filks. This link will take you to the main
site, where you can pick an archive or be automatically directed to
one of the mirror sites. The archive is run by Deirdre and a team of
volunteers who do massive amounts of work to keep the archive updated
regularly. They're great about removals and changes, too!
This is the ATXC auto-archive, for stories that haven't reached Gossamer yet. Stories posted through the alt.tv.x-files.creative newsgroup, directly or via the various mailing lists that provide forwarding services, are automatically picked up and archived at this site until they are added to Gossamer. The name refers to the transitory nature of the archive; stories are only contained here for a few months at most. It's run by Scott Miller, who does a fantastic job and certainly doesn't deserve all the crap he gets put through for it. Be nice to him!
One of my favorite places to visit, The Annex houses novel-length X-Files stories; that is, stories at least 200K in length. Stories are listed complete with book covers and introductions from the authors in most cases. Maintained by lore.
This is one of the most complete archives of post-episode stories I know of. Maintained by Lynn.
This archive contains the stories written for the weekly improvisational exercise on the Scullyfic mailing list. Maintained by Luperkal.
Yes, that is short for what you think it is short for. New, naughty and fun, but strictly NC-17. Maintained by "SoloFBI."
An archive of fic about or featuring John Doggett or Monica Reyes. Maintained by Lara Means.
Sadly, the message board is all that's left of ChronicleX these days. But it's still THE place to go to find that story you just can't seem to track down ...
Links to nearly every specialized archive out there.
A branch of the above, offering links to individual author pages.
= Recommendation sites =
members of the Primal Screamers got together during the summer of 1997
to stalk Lydia Bower for her post-"Gethsemane" work-in-progress, "Primal
Sympathy" (one of my favorite stories). Since then, they've built this
site offering fanfic recommendations out the wazoo, including a primer
of "must-reads" for both new readers and old. Maintained by Lesley.
The Yeti provides high-quality, short-term recs they're on the site for about two weeks at a time. Plus she's fun!

Very NC-17 (so be
warned), this site is mainly aimed at male/male sex acts but is very
thorough and helpful for other types of smut writing, too.

on David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson. Both offer loads of images,
interview transcripts, and information on other projects. GAWS is Gillian's
