A-Team Fan Fic Archives

Ratings are really relative. Back in 1999 for the purpose of the VA Archives, Sabrina and I decided upon a ratings guideline to give a standard for the fanfic hosted here. If you are a new writer posting to this archive, please adjust your rating accordingly (yes, one person's R may be another's NC-17).
