(Please see the Help page for more details and specifics. In fact, I would urge you to READ THE FAQs before creating an account.)
Please note: If you post work to the archive that does not meet this description, it will regretfully be deleted. Real Person Fiction (RPF) is not permitted in this archive. By using the site, you agree to the Terms of Service. Please also note that if you enter your real name when registering, it will be visible to search engines. Your real name is NOT required.

From Killa, your archivist: A huge thank you to Robin Serrano at Slashcity for her tremendous help in getting this set up, and to Lyrastar and Catalenamara for assistance above and beyond the call. My hope is that this archive will remain a central resource for K/S and Kirk-Spock fiction online.

A note about story ratings:
This site has three ratings for content:
All Audiences - appropriate for all ages
Mature Content - appropriate for those 13 and up
ADULT - appropriate for adults over 18 only.
These ratings are chosen by the authors.
A note about Warnings:
It is the policy of this archive to leave warnings in the hands of the authors. This means that the author may or may not choose to warn you about the content of their story. This includes warnings for such things as non-consensual sex, violence, rape, character death, infidelity, and other plot elements, so proceed with a mature sense of responsibility for your own sensitivities, please. However, authors may wish to note that many fans consider warning for these issues a matter of courtesy, and the more carefully you consider your warnings and story notes, the more likely you are to gain readers for your stories. Please note that if you choose not to use warnings, there is a warning classification for Caveat lector/Choose Not to Warn. We strongly recommended that you use this warning if you do not put other warnings on your fic, particularly if the story is rated Adult.
Wondering how to get started? Use the Categories page to choose which kind of text you're interested in, then sort all the items in that category by Universe, Author, Title, Keyword, Category, Genre, Warnings, Characters, or Ratings. If you're looking for a specific story and can remember something about it, or if you'd like to search for stories of a particular type, try the Search page. You don't need to register or log in to read the stories. To upload a story, you will need to create a Login account. See the Help page for FAQs and more information.
Feedback feeds the fanfic writer's soul! Please use the Contact or Review feature to let them know what you thought. Happy reading!
3/24/2010 New Warning added
Warning classification added for "Dubious consent."
A note about Favorites: I've had a few people write to me in the past and say that they were unable to add things to their favorites, but it turned out that they were not clicking on "Submit" after they chose "add to favorites." It's a two step process. You can also add a comment before clicking Submit.
9/22/2009 A note about Works In Progress:
Please be aware that the "Works In Progress" category exists for two reasons -- one, so that that those following WiPs can easily find ongoing stories to check for updates, and two, so that those who do not wish to read stories until they are finished will not find themselves surprised by a "To Be Continued..."
To this end, if your story is not finished, please do not categorize it as Fiction. It should be categorized as Works in Progress only. When the story is finished, you can change it from WIP to Fiction. Thanks!
5/31/2009 Remaining issues:
The Warning Pop-up behavior (and the ability to turn it off by making an age statement) only seems to work properly in Internet Explorer. This is a known issue in eFiction. All other issues have been resolved to the best of my knowledge, so please let me know if you experience any other problems.
