- What is Slash Fanfiction?
Slash is generally defined as fan fiction featuring romantic pairings of same-sex characters from TV, movies, or other media. If you're still unclear, read T'Mar's What Slash Is.
- Are you affiliated with The X-Files, TenThirteen Productions, or the Fox Network?
Nope. Alex Krycek and all the X-Files characters are owned by TenThirteen Productions and the Fox Network. No copyright infringement intended. I do this as a hobby, not to make money.
- Where does the name 'Red Light District' come from?
In Amsterdam, there's an area that's generally known as the "red light district" from the prostitutes that show off their wares in windows with red lights. Remember the Police song, "Roxanne"? So "red light district" usually means sex and this part of the Basement archive is for stories rated R and NC-17 which usually means sexual, erotic content.

I am alice ttlg (through the looking glass), I run The Basement, the primary X-Files slash archive, and Vox Populli, where I host a bunch of websites, some slash, some for friends and some of my own.
