Oh, it's lovely being off-grid in the rainforest, but this satellite internet is going to drive me crazy when I have to refresh 3 times to load or save anything. I'll have to see how it goes as far as uploading while I'm here.

I listened to this one during most of the drive up. I had no idea how long it was, but it kept me occupied as I drove and made me drive extra carefully during certain scenes as I didn't want to have to submit dashcam footage with M&S in explicit flagrante delicto if I happened to crash while that was going on.

Anyway, this one is case related, it's actually a crossover at times but you don't need to know the other source/s, and packed full of MSR. Be aware that some parts come with content warnings, which I've tried to add to the descriptions above.

I won't be able to add the web version for this one, due to its size and the internet issues that I'm not up for facing right now. 🙂 I can't add the extra artwork either...

 

Secret World by Bonetree

147,000 Words

Scully goes deep undercover to find the secret behind a mysterious death. But with what she learns, will she ever be able to come in from the cold?

!Please check the content warnings

A Scully-centric fic that plays to Scully's strengths without turning her into a saint. Meanwhile, poor Mulder is struggling with the separation, and Skinner is having headaches trying to keep him out of trouble.

Bonetree writes a compelling story with some fascinating characters. As Scully gets deeper into the case, we feel Mulder's angst and desperation over his lack of control.  There's also some wonderful Mulder-doctoring and caring for an injured Scully, and of course, some considered smut.

Snowed Inn cover

Includes "She Wears It Well"

Snowed Inn: First in the Seasons Series. Mulder & Scully travel to a country Inn to help solve a murder. [Teens & Up]

She Wears it Well: Snowed Inn Universe - They're in a close, intimate relationship. A little window-shopping in Boston. You don't have to have read Snowed Inn to 'get' this one.  [Adults only]

.

Mulder and Scully have to investigate a strange case in the snow, whilst coming to terms with their feelings for each other.

They've most certainly come to terms with that in the companion fic, She Wears It Well. Some intense heat, despite the cold weather. 😉

Itinerant Stasis by Livasnaps

106,000 Words

Itinerant Stasis cover

Picks up from Biogenesis and tells the story of a long and perilous journey—both inner and outer. All good journeys begin with clarity.

After realising how much smut I'd put in my July Fic Frenzy I'm trying to end with some smut-free fic.  This is ringfic, with Fowley as Mulder's ex-wife. Scully rescues Mulder from the hospital post-Biogenesis before going to a hideout where Mulder details his life after Samantha and before Scully.

Camp Hero by McKab

118,000 Words

Camp Hero cover
Part of the Old Friends series:

A continuation of Requiem. Mulder is abducted and Scully receives some incredible news... naturally she reaches out to some friends for support.

Scully teams up with people she can trust, Susan and Michael who were introduced in "Old Friends". It's much nicer to think that Scully had people to support her during Mulder's absence.

Bigfoot by PC Rasmussen

27,500 Words

BIgfoot cover

Mulder goes hunting after fairytales again and Scully tags along. Things don't turn out the way Mulder hoped they would and things go wrong... Wanna know more? Read the story. :o)

 

A lesser known story by PC Rasmussen, this one's possibly heavier on the Scully!Torture than the Mulder!Torture for a change. 🙂 Although it's rated R by the author, I'd put it closer to a PG-13.

Fish on the Hook by Writergal2000

24,000 Words

Fish on the Hook cover

Scully, Skinner and agents from DEA search frantically for Mulder, knowing he's been beaten and is in the hands of a mobster.

Mulder's kidnapped and tortured in this one, but it focuses more on Scully's angst as they try to find him, then her concern as she gives him some of her special Scully doctoring. 🙂

Awakening (The) by Jeylan

22,000 Words

Awakening cover

Mulder & Scully, younger and less world-weary, make an unplanned journey to a remote ocean beach. Forget the relentless way series TV has ground them down, this story is an invitation to turn back the clock. For incurable Romantics only.

Reading the headers had me smiling - Jeylan appears to share my opinions about a certain creator, but at least she turned this into a positive by writing this awesome story in response to her gripes. Just watch out for that crack in the fourth wall that Jeylan throws in.

Mulder and Scully need all the vacations they can get, even if they have to gatecrash the other's...

Imperishable by TaraW

19,500 Words

Imperishable Cover

Strange occurrences cause Mulder to use past X-Files to solve a new one, which sends he and Scully spiralling toward a truth they were *meant* to discover.

Another nice trip to the forest. I'm happy to be reviving this intriguing case file, which fell off the internet a long time ago. This one's set in Season 7 but fixes a Season 3 episode.

After Midnight by Jenna Tooms & KellyC

72,000 Words

After Midnight cover

Mulder and Scully move through the events of season six, carefully changing from friends to lovers.

Once upon a time there was a vignette. And when the vignette was posted, there were pleas for a sequel. However, the author had no ideas for a sequel, so she let a friend write it. The sequel then inspired the original author, so she wrote more. And so it went, back and forth, until the original vignette became . . .   After Midnight.

Mulder is repentant after Two Fathers/One Son.  Scully forgives him, a little at a time.  They have to rebuild trust.  This series takes you through season six from One Son onwards.

Jenna's made an illustration for each story in the series. There are too many to attach here, but they're included in the ePub & PDF versions.

Backseat Ethics by Flynn

5,800 Words

Backseat Ethics cover

Cotton candy for the mind. No violence, no guns drawn (and quickly lost) - just all the things I'd want to do if it were ME in that car.

A second weekend PWP distraction from reality fic.  Flynn manages to give us intense UST in an existing relationship. Now that's talent.

A Visit to Venus Springs by Destyshell

24,000 Words

Venus Springs cover

There's something mysterious in a picturesque Colorado mountain village where romance is rampant and the birthrate is astronomical.

I was reminded that it's not easy to download from ff-net so I've added a PDF version for this one.  I download them through calibre but before that I used to use ficsave.xyz to download in my chosen format.

This one's a sweet story with Mulder trying to do something nice for Scully. He's not always a self-consumed jerk. 😉

Merry Christmas, Scully by Stephanie K

25,000 words

Book Cover: Last Chance Falls by Slippin' Mickeys

A man. A women. A forest. A hit squad. An adventure.

(Inlcudes Last Chance Falls Interlude by Pam Gamble.)

This is certainly an adventure. Slippin' throws in plot aplenty as our agents try to keep out of trouble.

Slippin' is a talented writer with heaps of new stories still coming out, so go read her stories on AO3 if you haven't already done so.

Oops, I forgot to upload this, and i'm on a social-distancing vacation on Fraser Island, where internet is hard to get. I got the alert when I was out for a drive down the beach, so i've uploaded them all with my patchy phone internet.  It's a hard life.  This is me updating files right now. Shame about the rain:

If they're not fixed I can try again tomorrow  when I drive past the island's mobile phone tower. 😉

Flights of Fancy by Pebbles

55,000 words

Book Cover: Flights of Fancy by Pebbles

Flights of Fancy Series, includes:

Fancy Dance : PG-13 :  Scully faces another Valentine's Day alone - until she gets her Irish up.

Fancy Footwork : NC-17 : The morning after the night before as last seen in "Fancy Dance"

Fancy Three: PG-13 : Season Six, a little later on the morning after the night before seen in "Fancy Dance" and "Fancy Footwork"

Tickled Fancy: NC-17 : Season Six, after the events of Milagro

Fancy Toppings : R

Midsummer Night's Fancy : R

Fancy Harvest :  PG-13

Fancy Fall:  PG-13 - um, okay, R - but I still maintain this is not smut. No matter what Ropo says. 😉

Fancy Foreplay :  Robbie *made* me rate this NC-17; no bad language, tho. Still say it ain't smut.

Fancy Haunts :  NC-17. But *I* wouldn't call it smut.

Fancy Phone : R for racy language, implied smut : Set sometime in Season Seven, obviously pre-Requiem :  extra fic, not in Collector's Edition from the annex.

My head is in full on anxiety mode and I can't quite remember what happens in this one.  All I remember is that I was pleasantly surprised by this fic, and I've given it the following tags: ^, >, 1, 1>, Bch, CabW, P°, Pg, Sinit.  They might not mean much to you, but they tell me that they go to a forest, Scully runs out, there's first time sex, someone has regret after the first time, there's a beach, a cabin in the woods and outdoor sex, not necessarily in that order. Also, someone gets pregnant (probably not Mulder) and Scully initiates the romance.  I did enjoy it and it was hailed as one of Fred and Ginger's Smut Classics, so I hope you enjoy it regardless of my inability to remember what actually happens in it.
