An epic post-colonization series. This includes the complete story and the bonus extras. I'm not big on post-col, but I really enjoyed the way Donna threw all the characters into the destruction and rebuilding of their worlds in this one.  It's a long one, written over about 10 years. Read more...

Scully makes an assumption about Mulder and it nearly derails their partnership. The stress of back to back profiling cases results in some friction between our agents.  A series of misunderstandings doesn't help things until they finally work out where they're supposed to be. 😉  I was looking for a solstice fic, but because I'm on the wrong side of the world it's Yule here, and in the X-Files world Yule is at Christmastime, so nothing quite fit.  I gave Read more...

Mulder tries pushing Scully away to protect her. Scully doesn't give up that easily.

The ever-erotic, if sometimes clumsy, dance from UST to RST. Some allergies, some games, some alcohol, some smut. Oops, I'm late posting today, and a fic that wasn't supposed to be published yet was accidentally set free.  It's been one of those days.  I re-read this story last night and I'd forgotten how funny it is.  It's highly recommended, especially if you're in need of something lighter... like when your day starts with taking a flying fox to the wildlife Read more...

When an investigation in the middle of nowhere opens old wounds, 2000 miles away becomes too close to home. Can Mulder and Scully unravel the puzzle before they fall apart? Another gripping case file.

Book of Acts cover
This is a series of thematically-connected stories in which I attempt to stretch the limits of our heroes' sexuality.

After being missing for two months, when they were found, conclusions were leapt to and evidence tampered with.  Just another day on the X-Files....    On top of that, some ardent loving is walked in on, and there's some video evidence gleefully provided by some voyeuristic members of the consortium.  It's only glancingly mytharc. Content warning: there is dubcon involved in this (they were drugged but otherwise Read more...

Today's the 20th anniversary of Field Trip's first airing in this part of the world, so I've gone with a post Field Trip casefile.  It's PG but it doesn't need the smut. It has a nice relaxed UST feel and lots of flirtines intermingled with a revisit with an old monster of the week. Read more...
