Welcome to the Athenaeum's archive of lesbian fiction and fan fiction. Our archive lists 6999
works from 1577
authors, with 614
of those works available in eBook format. The Athenaeum was last updated May 9th, 2013.
While this site was created in 1996 to focus on original fiction and Xena fan fiction, it has grown to welcome all other fiction and fan fiction including Star Trek, Law & Order, Stargate, Birds of Prey, and several dozen others. Moreover, nearly half the fiction on The Athenaeum is all Original, and not related to any fan universe at all. A complete list can be found on our Advanced Search
page, and we always welcome fan fiction from new universes. While the vast majority of our fiction is lesbian oriented, we do have some general fiction in our collection as well.
Need some help finding a good story? Our What's New

On The Athenaeum you'll also find a Forum, Story Ratings, and a little 'bookmarking' tool called Bookshelf. The Bookshelf is useful for saving those great titles you know you'll read again, or collecting a reading list for a later date. Just added in 2009 is a personal Watched Story list that allows you a mark a story and receive a notice on our What's New page when that story is updated.
