Mulder & Scully, undercover as a couple on a honeymoon cruise. This story riffs off just about every fanfic cliche we could think of.  We did this on purpose, and hopefully it will be obvious we wouldn't have been able to write this if we didn't love fanfic enough to have read lots and lots of stories over the past few years.  It's also very long. We hope it's amusing enough to justify both of these things - it sure cracked us up!

This is the cruise fic to end all cruise fics. Actually, this could be the tropey fanfic to end all tropey fanfics.

The first time I read this story I think I was a little impatient to get to the RST, and completely missed so much of the journey. The UST goes well past any healthy person's frustration levels, but bear with it and just try to enjoy the wild ride.

While Mulder and Scully are undercover on a honeymoon cruise for couples who postponed their wedding 3 or more times, they're subjected to Julie from the Love Boat and the indignity of many couples seminars before accidentally getting married  and becoming living legends. I don't have enough tags to do this story justice, (although admittedly I left a couple off and I have to force myself to stop typing now so I don't spoil everything in it. ) It's also funny how prescient some of their humorous suggestions are. For those of us who love a good fanfic trope, this is the holy grail.

There is a second image for this one, which I believe was made by eponine119.

Little Blue Pill: Someone spiked Mulder's drink with viagra at the FBI ball...

Heat Wave: Mulder and Scully have a little fun with ice cream Set after little blue Pill

All I can say is that I wish I had a trusting working relationship like this with my handsome co-workers.  Scully goes above and beyond the call of duty at this FBI Ball.  Later on they relieve each other in the heat.

Because these were companion fics I left them out of both the Heat and the FBI Ball Shipper's Digests when they were compiled.  There's not much substance to them, so I'm releasing this 'book' as a bonus extra to celebrate ...ummm... Groundhog Day on Tuesday!  Best wishes for a Happy  Groundhog Day!

After Eight cover

Is it the magic of the Eight Ball, the Christmas spirit, or something that’s been a long time in coming?

Nothing but Christmas cheer, schmoop and smut here. We don't know
nothin' bout no angst.

Fortunately Mulder and Scully's office parties happened before social distancing ruined all the fun, although  I never had this much fun at any of mine.  Put on some Duran Duran and enjoy.

More treats than tricks. More pocus than hocus.  It's probably not surprising that Mr & Mrs Spooky enjoy halloween.  This is a bit of a mixed bag of stories.  The majority are first time fics.  Most are refreshingly light on plot, but there's a case file in there too. There's a lot of light-hearted fun to enjoy in this batch.
