The Hex Files

Welcome to the Hex Files! This collection contains works that were once archived at


The import of this archive to the AO3 was approved by the OTW Open Doors Committee on 19 June 2016, and was completed in July 2017. For more information, please see the announcement post.

As many stories were archived in one large import, there will be some incomplete stories. Unfortunately, with an import of this magnitude, it is impossible to mark each individual story incomplete.

About The Hex Files (thehexfiles)

Active since:



This collection contains works originally located at which were imported to the Archive of Our Own through the Open Doors Project. For more information, please see the announcement post.



If you still have access to the email you used to post your works to The Hex Files, you should have received an email with the option to claim your works at the time they were imported. If you do not have access to that email account, or did not receive the notification, please contact the moderator at the contact email address listed above.

All unclaimed works are imported as restricted to logged-in AO3 users only, and were made publicly viewable after 30-day transition period. If you claimed your works before that period ended, you will need to change the restriction setting.

If you choose to delete your works, be aware that this will break the redirect link from the original archive address. If you have already uploaded a copy of your works to the AO3, please contact the Open Doors Committee after you delete the import copies so that they can reset the redirect link to point to the current version of your work. Please include the work title(s) and current AO3 URL(s).

For questions about using the AO3, please contact AO3 Support.
