Welcome to the Forbidden Archive

The stories you will find here have been collected over the past fifteen years. A special thanks goes out to Black Rose for originally compiling them and to Mevinan for keeping them safe for so long. Thank you as well, to those who have helped with editing and formatting. The original archive is not here in its entirety yet, but more fics will be added in the future.

Stories can only be viewed by registered members, so you will need to create an account in order to read what has been posted here or share your own.


Overdue Update

Believe it or not, we're still alive. I hope you'll accept our apologies for being a bit crap at maintaining the Forbidden Archive in recent times, but we are still here and we are still working on it.

About two months ago, we moved everything over to a new webhost, which has, unfortunately, caused some serious issues with the eFiction software. Submitting, editing, creating new accounts, fan art gallery and password recovery are all areas which have been impacted by the move.

The eFiction software we use here was created entirely by volunteers and the project is still ongoing, with an upgrade promised for the near future. As these people are working for free, support is often limited and those who are using the software are left to sort issues on their own. We are not PHP experts and we learn by trial and error. This can take time, which all of you know, is frequently hindered by other obligations.

We've investigated other options such as Wordpress fiction archives and there may be possibilities there which we are still exploring.

For the moment, please know that we have received your e-mails, we appreciate your patience and apologize for the inconvenience. Please bear with us as we do everything we can to get things running properly again.

If any of you are skilled with PHP and willing to offer your time and expertise, please feel free to contact us via the contact page. At least, that is still working.

Password Recovery

We seem to be having some technical issues with the account creation and password recovery section of the site. If you experience an issue, please feel free to contact us via the contact form (in the links above) or directly at to let us know. Be sure to provide your user name or desired user name in the body of the message. Until this problem is fixed, we can manually set up accounts and change passwords. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

Thank you

To those who have recently offered assistance getting things back on track with the Forbidden Archive, we haven't forgotten you! We very much appreciate your offers and will absolutely take you up on them just as soon as we work out where we left off with the uploading. Just a few more days and you should have a message from us in your inbox.

For those who might still like to help, what we need is this:

The E-fiction software that we use for the archive requires a summary of every story, a category (genre), a rating, characters involved and possible spoilers. Many of the original tales do not have these things included, which is why we need volunteers to read through them, add these items then send them back to us via e-mail so we can get them uploaded for everyone to read.

If this is something that you may have time for, feel free to drop us an e-mail at
