And Death Shall Have No Dominion by Jean Helms
Mulder and Scully, off the X Files for now, investigate a possible bioweapons facility. What they find there puts their partnership, their investigative skills, their love and even their sanity to a test neither could ever have imagined. !non-consensual sex, suicidal thoughts This is another dark and angsty one, but well worth the pain. I somehow missed the original dustjacket despite the hundreds of them in my collection, and it wasn't until I went to get the link for this post that I discovered there was one. After adding the one I made to the epub and pdf files I Read more.
Assumption of Guilt, An by Gerry Hill
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 up and got one set around the northern Summer solstice in season 7. Read more.
Beauty in the Breakdown by Neytirijade
Mulder tries pushing Scully away to protect her. Scully doesn't give up that easily. Neytirijade delights us with some MSR smut at the Gunmen's on New Years Eve.

Bone of Contention by Kel & Michelle Kiefer
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. This one puts our agents in the perilous position of investigating a cloning facility. I can't quite remember if it's mytharc related, I might have to read it again - all I remember is the Dr Scully awkwardness after Mulder's hurt. Read more.
Butt, Montana & Hellhole, Idaho by Jess M
Scully goes on a date. Mulder is incensed! Comedy and Love ensue. I thought I'd lighten things up with some jealousy smut. The Scully/Other is no more than a plot device, therefore it could be argued that there is some plot involved. Read more.
Catalytic Converter & Pretensioner by Diana Battis
Diana Battis was one of those authors who could write sweet, sizzling smut while managing to slip some in some plot in as well. If you enjoy a side-order of jealousy and friction with your MSR, these two stories should be right up your alley. Catalytic Converter: Mulder plays Good Samaritan. Pretensioner: After an office confrontation forces Mulder and Scully to re-examine their relationship, the situation is further complicated by the untimely appearance of a woman from Mulder’s past. Read more.

Erlona’s Heart by MD1016
Mulder takes Scully on her dream vacation but things don't quite go to plan. If you haven't figured it out yet, MD1016 is one of my favourite authors, and possibly even the one who got me sucked in to the world of XF fanfic to begin with . She combines the angst and UST and unleashes the smut in a way that I find most appealing. This is a vacation fic set during the cancer arc, with all its tenderness, angst, love, and seasickness. Read more.
Fidelity by Suzanne Schramm
A Scully ditch provides the opportunity to get some real answers in the quest for the truth. Takes place right after Two Fathers/One Son. I puffy heart this story so much. It fulfills my post-One Son need for Mulder to have to suffer for his treatment of Scully in that episode (even if it's Scully who's feeling most of the pain). I can be rather masochistic in my enjoyment of the pain of the rift caused by Mulder's unwillingness to believe that Fowley would betray him. I'm like a mutant who feeds off the intense Mulder-Scully feels, and this story Read more.

Hardball by Missy P
Summary withheld at author’s request. It's enough to say that it's a ball fic, with gossip and jealousy, misdirection and misunderstanding. Note: I'm unsure whether Missy has used her real name so I've just used her last initial on the site. Her full name is on the dustjacket where it can't be googled. Read more.

As members of a domestic terrorism task force, Mulder and Scully investigate a series of bombings linked to a traveling carnival show. Set early season six. Mulder and Scully are carnies. It's been a while since I've read this one, but from what I remember Scully is initially undercover on her own, and Mulder (who can't be without her of course) joins her.

Lost Time by Spider
Diana continues to interfere after One Son. Our agents couldn't be any more distant when they're sent out of the country on a case. Author's Notes: For almost 20 years I have lived in a country with a 5,000 year old culture, spending months in villages that count years since the last white person was seen. I was once an academic and thus am still more skeptic that believer. But I have also seen things... On my last trip to Ambrym volcano, I was stuck in a leaky hut with dead bodies from black magic littering the area. . My Read more.

One Belief Away by Laura Blaurosen
Mulder and Scully are called out on an investigation involving a supposedly haunted house with a murderous ghost. They also find out a few other things (unrelated to the case) while they are there. This one's a brief Mulder/other, resulting in some intense Scully jealousy. Don't worry, it ends as it should ;-). I'm still excited that I got to go on a paranormal investigation last night, complete with EMF Meters and heat and Kinect cameras and everything, so I figured a ghost hunting fic was in order. Unfortunately my experience didn't end up NC-17 rated though... Read more.
Parabiosis by Penumbra
Science and Mysticism conjoin. A detailed look at season 7. (Rated R) This story is supplemented by an NC-17 'addendum to casefile' 'Upsidaisium', which is included. Upsidaisium is set around Gethsemane which is a bit confusing but smut is smut. Scully dared herself to give in to this life, to call this enough - dire middle-of-the-nights with this unbelievable parabiosis arcing between them, and the daytime eternities of pretending there was nothing new. And now when he wanted to lie with her, kissing and talking, she thought of how they would act tomorrow, of the subsequent days until they could Read more.
Price of Truth I & II by E Livingstone
Price of Truth: Scully puts her life and beliefs on the line to get Mulder his truth. Tangled Web: After trying to find Mulder his Truth, Scully has to face the consequences of having seen too much.

Punishment by Spooky66
SO! I threw around the idea that Mulder likes to be spanked and was asked to write it! This is just a little bit of gratuitous smut just because Mulder deserved a spanking after One Son. Spooky66 and I collaborated on this illustration for her post-One Son punishment fic. We just had to make Dom!Scully spank Mulder with a name plate with her name on it. I'm so easy to lead astray. Read more.

I know many don't like this episode, and I admit that I was in the 'Scully didn't do it' camp for a long time, but I've switched to the 'Scully really wants Mulder but he's being a total jerk so she can go have whatever fun she needs Read more.
Smoking & Patch by Alanna & Michaela
Includes Smoking: Oh, the trials and tribulations of jealousy and frustration Patch: The sequel Jealousy may be unbecoming but it makes for great smut.

Tam Lin by Pequod
Myth and murder combine in a remote Scottish village and Mulder and Scully investigate. Pequod gives us that ever-infuriating Mulder who withholds important details but gets away with it because he's adorable. The plot is strong, as is the UST, until PartyDress!Scully tips that over the edge. It's a well-written tale with the humour and banter that made me fall in love with Mulder and Scully, set in the beautiful Scottish countryside. And Kilt!Mulder even makes a cameo. 🙂 Read more.

Tootsie Pop I-III by EvieLouise
CONTENT WARNING: The following story is contrived, cliche-ridden, unrealistic, and unhygienic. And really, really smutty. ~Sap alert~ as well. Don't venture further unless you dig that kind of thing Tootsie Pop After returning from an assignment where Mulder inadvertantly caught sight of Scully in her underwear, a cliched evening of boring paperwork was made more interesting by Mulder seeing even more of Scully. Tootsie Pop II: Marshmallows & Mints Summary: Mulder and Scully go on another nice trip to the forest, or thereabouts, share conversation and confections, and engage in other fun adult activities. Tootsie Pop II: JellyBellies and Twang Read more.
Touching Jericho by Ford & Ursula Luxem
Sometimes one man’s faith is all that stands between revelation and destruction. Scully/Other, M/S UST, Angst, Mytharc I was surprised to enjoy this one as much as I did given that it's a Scully/Other. The story sucks you in, and it's set during the time of Mulder's disillusionment in Season 5, a few months after The Red & The Black, when Mulder's trying to deliberately push Scully away. While Mulder's playing up his asshole side, Scully's still trying to come to terms with the whole cancer/chip/Emily thing, so it's understandable that she'd seek comfort with someone who's going through a Read more.
Undercover Swing by 2momsmakearight

Read more.
Unnatural Disaster by Michaela
It's hard enough when your mistakes come back to haunt you. Harder still when you're a federal agent. Hardest yet when your partner's help is the first thing you need, but the last thing you want ... Glorious angst. 18 months after Never Again, Ed Jerse returns to taunt Scully in this gripping tale. It's one that's hard to put down so free up some time to indulge yourself. There is a character death, but it's not one most people would cry over. I can't remember whether it's before or after Fight the Future, so I guessed. *files reuploaded with Read more.

XII by FragileVixen
A killer romanticizes each and every victim, leaving behind symbols of his "love"...but who is his intended target?

This is one of those stories 🙂 This is an epic fic which I haven't finished reading yet, so further tags may be added as I go. This is only the first story in the Into the Shadows series.
