Scully is injured in a blast in which lives are lost. She was the target, so she and Mulder take off, knowing also that that they will be blamed. The pair travel the width of the country in an effort to escape those who are after them.
This starts as a short story, set in Season 3, but it quickly gets out of hand and ends up as an epic series.
From Nicole (in Goin' Nowhere): This is a dark story that I love. It was wild -- the idea literally leaped into my mind this morning and plagued me all day. It was all I could do to get home and write it down.
The stories include:
- Goin' Nowhere
- Passing Through
- At the Blue Hotel
- Down the Tracks
- A Divided Highway
- City Limits*
*City Limits is an incomplete WIP. I've put a note at the end of the completed stories so you can decide whether or not you'd like to leave them in a happy place or continue on. City Limits has only 5 chapters posted, and remains eternally incomplete.
It's sad that this epic series remains unfinished, but I can't even imagine what it would be like to work on a project for this many years, so I'm totally surprised that Nicole managed to put out as much as she did.
I'm not really a fan of the premise of this fic, but this is well written and didn't bother me for some reason.
I'm uploading another story, written by Wendy Wiliams, called "Cul-de-Sac" for anyone who needs something light hearted when they get to the end. This story is in the Roads Series universe, and is a humourous meta-based fic with a cameo from Nicole and a cast of characters from the Order of the Blessed Saint Scully the Enigmatic. It was authorised by Nicole, so could technically be considered canon... It begins at the end of A Divided Highway.
