Cunegund’s Restoration by LiviaB

39,000 Words

Cunegund's Restoration cover

Despite the "hard news" angle taken by his correspondent Christiane Amanpour, CNN Washington Bureau Chief Frank Sesno finally got to the point and asked the question everybody had been silently asking themselves. "So, Agent Mulder, how did the spacecraft handle?"

A Post-Requiem Mulder-Returns-in-the-happiest-possible-way fic.

After the comparative angst of Livia's "Hem Ben Ik" I thought you might like a happy ending story.  This has to bring a smile to your face, and it's surprisingly light on sap as Livia ties up more loose endings than CC did in 11 Seasons and 2 movies. 🙂

Barely Balancing by Frohike

52,000 Words

Barely Balancing cover

No summary provided, so here's my TV Guide version:

The Lone Gunmen help sort out the whole Diana issue and help play cupid, but just as things are finally working out, Scully is plagued by ever-worsening nightmares.

Frohike wanted to give Byers a chance to cut loose, or as she put it "get that steel rod removed from his ass", and this was the result. Byers plays a big part in this X-File, in which Scully is tortured once again.

This is set after the events of One Son, and it's quite satisfying that Scully's concerns are validated. I also confess to a few little chuckles over place names in this story.

 

Sex, Lies & Videotape by Amy McClure

Sex Lies & Videotape cover

One word sums it all up: smut.

Amy sums it up nicely. There's a bit of friendly discussion over who won or lost a bet before the wager is collected.

Rumor & Bartering Contentment by Beduini

Rumor + Bartering Contentment cover

Rumor: It started like many rumors do - in the ladies room on the sixth floor. This time it happened to be during the five-minute break between departmental speakers in the first quarterly review of the new Millennium.

Bartering Contentment: Turning fledgling physical intimacy into a relationship you can wear every day.

Two glorious stories from Beduini. Some Scully/Mulder violence is involved in our agents' first frenetic coming together.

No Title by The Alexandria Trio

19,000 Words

No Title Cover

Love knows no national boundaries or gender differentiation: Everyone loves Scully.

The Alexandria Trio are Lucy Marchmont, kmom, & bcfan

Some absolute silliness for the end of the July Frenzy of Fanfic. If nothing else it should make you smile.

As I only had a tiny version of the cover for this one, I've taken the liberty of playing with it a little in versions where it's going to be blown up bigger. 🙂

Shred of Doubt by Jo-Ann L & Vickie Moseley

68,000 Words

Shred of Doubt cover

Scully gets called out to San Diego to help on a case and Mulder, though still recovering, tags along. Detective John Kresge wasn’t expecting the extra baggage.

 

This is an all-time favourite fic that I was reminded of recently.  I just love the characterisation embraced by these two long-standing XF fanfic authors: Mulder is constantly tortured but still tries to play at Alpha Male -being very possessive of Scully whilst feeling threatened and vulnerable, Scully is caught between Mulder and the rest of the civilised world, Kresge is an overbearing sexist pig, Maggie is the all-knowing peacemaker, and Bill Jr is at his belligerent, blustering best.  This all adds to the humour and makes this case file an extremely entertaining read.

Absolute Beginners by Diehard

43,000 Words

Absolute beginners cover
Part of the Absolute Beginners series:

BOOK ONE: ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS

Our heroes finally decide to do the dirty deed. Sex, love, all the rest. What might have occurred before the last two thirds of Season 7.

BOOK TWO: BETTER WITH PRACTICE

Two Weeks after Book One.

BOOK THREE: COMES THE MORNING

Mulder and Scully have been together for about two weeks after the events in Absolute Beginners, and it’s now the day after the events in Better With Practice.

This is a binge-worthy classic from Diehard as our agents embark on a new relationship.

The images were all done by Circe Invidiosa for her website, which hosts a number of excellent authors, so I've set the web link to go there. You can admire all the work she's done getting her old website back up and running and the amount of effort she's put in, not just for her own fics, but for heaps of other fabulous authors.

Once you've finished reading this one, you can head to the sequel, "The Whole Catastrophe" in the series link.

Like a Turtle on its Back by Jo-Ann L

25,000 Words

Like a Turtle cover

After several blows to his male ego, Mulder begins to question the equilibrium of his relationship—both professional and personal—with Scully.

Poor Mulder feels emasculated and tries to be one of the boys. It goes about as well as you'd expect.

Sunflowers in the Rain by Scullys_laughter

Sunflowers in the Rain cover

As Mulder and Scully’s longing for each other is getting more and more unbearable a case file and Scully’s dreams take them to an isolated hotel in the mountains. Amid a missing persons’ investigation, a family mystery resurfaces, leading to discoveries, adventures, and revelations.

This week's link to AO3 is another from last year's fabulous case file exchange.  There are still some I haven't read, but I'm getting there.

Blood of Angels by LoneGunGuy

68,000 Words

Blood of Angels cover

"History is not written in books, Agent Scully, but in an alphabet of human suffering. Every death leaves its mark upon the aether, burnt into the astral plane, scorched into the very fabric of the universe—a textbook accessible to any man who is willing to annihilate himself in its pursuit. History is a manuscript written on the clouds. Authored by the blood of angels.”

As Scully lies on the sidewalk, dead, Mulder holds the murder weapon in his hands and knows that he must have had a damned good reason for killing her....if only he could remember what it was....A bizarre, labyrinthine mystery with darkly comic overtones.

This is an early X-Files fanfic classic, written by the talented LoneGunGuy in 1996.  This one isn't for the faint of heart, it can get dark. With imaginations as twisted as those of some fanfic authors, I'm so glad they're putting them into good use rather than letting them roam the streets creating havoc. 😉

I can have mixed feelings regarding the mytharc on the show that makes me shy away from reading stories dealing with aliens and cloning and all that stuff, but there are many, like this one, that blow it out of the water.

Sadly, to my knowledge, a sequel to this story was never forthcoming.

Colors by Amperage, Livengoo, Monkeyboy & Rodent

27,000 Words

Colors cover

Scully has an itch to scratch, but has trouble getting the right spot.

AUTHORS’ NOTE: Long ago, in a galaxy far, far away … Oh, wait a minute, that’s a different story … Ah yes, how to explain Colors … Let’s just say that we decided if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, but let’s do it tongue firmly in cheek. Yes, there’s lots of firm things in this, and soft luscious goodies, and all the deep cerulean pools one could ever hope to gaze into. That’s right, we wrote a romance … well, as close to a romance as you’ll probably ever get out of this bunch of non-romantics.

Actually, it’s more about sex and comedy than romance, but we honestly are trying to get Mulder and Scully together. They’re just … just … guess you’ll just have to read to find out.

There's no other story quite like this round robin written in 1995. I'm still laughing from just attempting to come up with a summary. There's not much more I can say that the authors haven't said above. If you like some fun, burlesque smut, read it NOW. Even if you've already read it.

Her Music is Thunder by Suilven

16,000 Words

Her Music is Thunder cover

Six months have passed since the New Year's Eve kiss that Mulder and Scully had hoped would lead to more, but hesitation remains. When a new case takes them to Lake Superior and into the middle of a local legend where supernatural forces run as deep as the waters themselves, will their investigation finally break the impasse between them?

I'm taking advantage of the daily releases to link to a few more recent fics 🙂

Mulder and Scully join a pair of mounties in this one to look for a scary lake monster.

Delta S by Nicole Mason

30,000 Words

Delta S NC-17 cover

“Your mom and Charlie can come, too.” He saw her actually start to listen to the suggestion. “The only thing for miles around is a lodge. They have a barbeque planned and some fireworks. There’s a lake and several miles of trails and —” 

“Just an everyday, ordinary vacation?”

“Yep. Is that so hard to believe, Scully?”

She grinned and opened the door. “Mulder, with you around that’s just about as likely as aliens landing tomorrow.”

I've also included a PG-13 version of this one.

Mulder decides to take some of the Scully family members away for a vacation. Maggie decides that Mulder and Scully should vacation alone. She does end up joining them in Vegas though, and the real action begins there. While this is a crossover, Nicole doesn't want to give anything away too early, and it's not necessary to have knowledge (or memory) of the other situation.

Although they're in Vegas for a specific reason that's not noromo friendly, I've included a PG-13 version because that reason doesn't dampen their bantery relationship at all, and thought some people may enjoy the other action.  Click on the PG dustjacket below to read the smut-free version.

Truth (The) by Eponine119 & Jessica Taylor

114,000 Words

Truth cover

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.

Bates Witch cover

Mulder falls afoul of a witch's curse while investigating the mysterious death of a scuba diver in swim fins and tank, found unscorched in the middle of a burned out meadow, miles from water.

Another PG fic to help balance things out a little 😉  This one's still full of MSR/UST when Mulder isn't being an ass. And it's always fun to torture Mulder in every way possible.

Way I Saw It (The) by JaimeLyn

65,000 Words

Way I Saw It cover

The Way I Saw It: Scully has had an awful day, Mulder is drunk, and Diana Fowley thinks its all Scully's fault. Who is right? Who is wrong? And what the heck happened?

The Dish and the Spoon: Rain, wind, Mulder, Scully, Diana and... a meteor shower? What the heck is going on? Who will emerge victorious in a game of love and war? It all happened just the way they saw it.

JaimeLyn tells this story from Diana, Scully & Mulder's points of view alternatively, and it's a thing of beauty, particularly the Fowley-Scully hate.

As cover

As around the sun the earth knows she’s revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May
Just as hate knows love is the cure
You can rest your mind assured
That i’ll be loving you always

--Stevie Wonder, As

Book One: Mulder and Scully have to fight for their positions on the X-Files.

Book Two:  Part One - Thanksgiving + Part Two  - Christmas (to Chapter 14 - last updated Dec 12, 2004)

Although this edition has an additional part to those available at Gossamer, it comes incomplete. While it didn't make it to its final destination, it does have a satisfactory ending.

Book One of this series is a doozy. Full of delicious angst and heartbreak after Mulder and Scully are caught in a compromising position.

It does lose momentum in Book Two, probably because it never made it to where it was going; Book Two and the planned Book Three were never completed. You may want to stick with Book One only, but it's worth adding the opening of Book Two as an epilogue, both for the humour and to know where things ended up after the preceding angstfest. 😉

Damn Desk by SamIAm

4,300 Words

Damn Desk cover

I: Maggie needs some help moving a few things. Discoveries ensue.

II: Mulder annoys scully and she gets revenge

III: Scully raises the revenge stakes. Some naked antics ensue.

Whilst this may not be a literary classic, I remember having to chase down parts of this fic so I'm posting it here in its entirety for the hump day PWP. Unfortunately it seems that Sam's muse was feeling rather contrary when she wrote this, and it turned out to be PWPWP.

Anyway, if you're after some OOC mindlessness involving some friendly competition between our agents, this should be about 15 minutes worth.

Awakening (The) by Jeylan

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...

April Fools Day Series cover
  • April Fool's Day 1 - 101 Uses For Jumper Cables: Scully plays a practical joke on Mulder that leaves him speechless.
  • April Fool's Day 2 - Please Leave a Message : Mulder feels compelled to retaliate, pulling out all the stops for this practical joke.
  • April Fool's Day 3 - Sex, Lies and Microcassette Tapes: Geez, will Scully give up? Think not. She's got another trick up her sleeve for Mulder in the practical joke war.
  • April Fool's Day 4 - Move and Counter Move : Mulder thinks he's got Scully now. But does he?

Scully and Mulder play a few April Fool's Day pranks on each other. GirlGone is known for her humour. This is just a little silliness, set in early seasons. No MSR sorry, just some friendly fun with a garnish of jealousy.

Diamonds and Rust & An Everlasting Kiss by Mustang Sally

Diamonds & Rust cover

Diamonds and Rust:  Mutilated cattle in the midwest. A plateful of anger with lust on the side.

An Everlasting Kiss: Mulder and Scully investigate a missing child in the seedy glitz and glamour of Atlantic City. They confront Mafiosi, big hair, and flocked wallpaper in Vegas by the Sea. Oh yeah, there's some sex too.

Mulder's annoyed. Scully's annoyed. Mulder's annoyed that Scully's annoyed. Smut ensues.

It's one of my favourite things ever - angry smut!!!!

Barnyard Series by Dark Nascent

49,000 Words

Barnyard Cover

The complete Barnyard Series

  • Lambs to the Slaughter: Your strongest enemy is one who has nothing left to lose. You know how important Agent Mulder is to the equation. You don't want to turn one man's fight into a crusade. Excuses, excuses.
  • Said the Spider to the Fly: The truth about Samantha Mulder. Or: Nascent develops her split personality.
  • From Ass to Zebra: Okay. So what if, like, Vince Gilligan was me, and I was Vince? I am he, and he is me, and we are all together! Step aside, Vinzeno. Let D.N. show you how it's DONE.
  • Cockfighting: Guess
  • Swine of the Prodigal Son: Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday's gonna be all right.
  • Cattle Chutes:  You remember that game "Chutes and Ladders?" If not, you're old. I bet Mulder and Scully play really well.
  • EIEIO: The truth is out there.

!Content Warning: Character deaths - everyone dies, often more than once, in multiple ways, but it is humour.  There's also slash in "Cockfighting", but nothing graphic.

Have you ever wanted to be immunised against the anguish of character death? Well this is the series for you.

Nascent's evil side takes over and she goes on a rampage of character death, in a multitude of imaginative ways.  Both beloved and detested characters suffer at the hands of Dark Nascent, and I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times.

Nascent breaks all the fanfic rules with this series, but she pulls it off magnificently.

Flea Market Economy by Punk Maneuverability

11,000 Words

Flea Market Economy cover

She gets the feeling this is Mulder's fault, because these things usually are.

!There's a dubcon warning on this one despite their relationship not being consummated.  It's labelled as "comedic genderswap", if that helps.

This is stuck!fic of a totally different kind, but Punk Maneuverability's specialty is writing fics that are difficult to categorise. This is an awkward but fun Mulder/Scully bodyswap trope story.

Little Blue Pill & Heat Wave by Caz_the_Beeslayer

Little Blue Pill cover

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!

Dares Series by Eponine119

21,000 Words

Dares series cover

Eponine119's Dares series has our agents messing around and exacting revenge on one another, with some fun and games sprinkled into a very drawn out game of Truth or Dare.  A bit of a flippant, humourous tale, that finishes as they realise that they don't need the games after all.

Since I already had this one combined and ready to go, I figured an extra day of PWP for world peace won't go astray.  This is one of those fics that I remembered being better than I found it on my recent re-read. Eponine119 has a lot of magnificent stories, but I'm not sure this early fic, written in 1995, quite reaches that standard.  It could just be that my expectations were higher, so if I lower yours you might enjoy it more. 😉  It's a little on the juvenile side, but if you're after total escapism it might be just the thing...

This story finishes off my 14 festive days of fics I challenged myself to post to get myself in the swing of things again. I'm aiming to get back to posting 3 times a week, but I still haven't managed to get back to reading emails again. Fingers crossed that I get there soon. I have important emails to send too. 🙂

 

Trigger Stories by PhileyX

Trigger stories cover

Fox: Ever wonder why Mulder finally kissed Scully on New Year’s Eve? Here’s my theory…….

Mulder: So Mulder managed to resist Scully. Will she be able to resist him?

Toady: Agent Archie Travis goes on the mission to find out what Agent Scully left behind in Agent Mulder’s apartment. This story was initially set after "Fox" but written after "Mulder" so it includes details revealed in "Mulder". It's been shifted accordingly.

Even: Whoops, just a slip of the tongue...

Kiss: How far would Mulder go to know what happened? Mulder is desperate to know about what happened when he was in the mercy of his partner. How far would he go to find out? Meanwhile, Scully plays a mean joke on him and Archie finds the woman of his dreams

 

Mulder and Scully are faced with the extremely tough challenge of resisting each other's advances.  It's another one that's only PG (I don't know what's wrong with me), but there's plenty of fighting of urges.  It gets a little silly at times, but it's all in fun.

Year of Election by Paul W

Year of Election cover

Mulder and Scully run for president... as Republicans. Sadly this was 1996 though. 😉

This is a special fic to distract our American readers from the trauma of the US Presidential election.  It's full of humourous situations as our heroes deal with the ups and downs of politics.  I played this in the car on my long drive to the far north of Australia and did manage to laugh out loud a few times.  It features the best episode of Larry King ever, which sadly never made it to air. 🙁

 

I've been temporarily distracted by having to offer my services at the Tolga Bat Hospital, but I'll try to update when I can.

The lovely Observer of the Universe has volunteered to come in and fix up some tags and things, which I'm eternally thankful for. Hopefully we can get some new exciting things happening once bat season is dealt with...

Mulder’s haircut is, quite simply, the result of one woman’s possessive nature. A lot of people have speculated on Mulder’s “for the love of God, WHY?” haircut. Here’s my excuse.

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.

Mulder and Scully have to catch a bad guy at the Highland Games. Scully convinces him that he has to wear a kilt to blend in. Discomfort and comfort ensue.

 

Sometimes I can't help myself and include some naughtiness on my covers, with an attempt to make it tasteful.  Apologies to PDF readers, I can't make the cover not stretch over the whole page and therefore there may be a lot of butt in your face when you open the file.

Let me just add that there aren't enough fics with Mulder wearing a kilt. I expect you all to write me some more, OK?   If enough people write some kilt smut stories I may need to do a Shipper's digest for them...  😀

No, it's not Christmas (but I do have a gift for you) and 2020 isn't over with yet (unfortunately), but it is yule downunder.

The gift I have for you is the completed renovation of Donnilee's section of her website.  You'll notice I added a web link.  It just took a little extra time to complete this section after I discovered how bad the original colours looked on mobile screens and had to tone it all down by 1000%.

There's still more to  go - the added author sites aren't yet converted for mobile-friendly browsing, nor is the OTC recs section but I have to slow down a bit due to my advancing age... 😉

These ones are total out-of-character smut-romps, but they're way more enjoyable than the out-of-character anti-smut we get from the Anti-Chris (Carter) 😛  😀

The world of MSR fanfic has many wonderful stories about the "first time." Here's one about the changes and adjustments that follow. Mulder and Scully suffer through their own insecurities as they take on the Consortium. Some jealousy for Mulder.

Kel isn't one of those author's names that you hear spoken of reverently in the XF fanfic world, but by the gods she can write some intricate plots. Not only that, but this one is interlaced with the kind of humour that almost borders on the ridiculous at times, and just makes you feel good.

There are bonus cameos from Bill Clinton, Al Gore, and Newt Gingrich to add to the fun.

When you run into your ex, you pretend you're dating your partner. Sometimes things spiral from there.

You may need to suspend belief a little here and there, but just go with it, it's worth it!   This one's a lot of fun.

Scent of a Woman + Atoll by Terma99

Book Cover: Scent of a Woman + Atoll by Terma99

The complete Scent of a Woman series includes:

I: Scully left something behind when she spent the night
at Mulder's apartment.

II: Scully makes herself at home in Mulder's lair.

III:  Scully decides to put her plan to seduce
her partner into action.

IV: Our beloved agents bring those flights of fantasy to life.

V: (Atoll) Who wouldn't dream of spending two weeks on a
private island with a tanned, naked Mulder?

 

Is it hot in here?  There's not much plot to worry about and Terma99's writing should keep you warm on a winter's day.  Atoll is a story I've had to re-read a few times, just to make sure I got all the subtext. 😉

Cheekies, Wet With Rain:  Mulder loses a bet but ends up winning.

Sequels - Cheekies, In the Night & Cheekies, In the Spring

You know when Jacquie (or ChaCha as I think of her) is involved, the dynamic duo are going to have dynamic fun. 😉

*not tested on or guaranteed to cure any actual ills. Please seek medical advice, but it shouldn't hurt to read this while you're waiting...

It's a long weekend here for Labour Day, so I've added some bonus weekend reading. 😉

I apologise, but at 185,000 words, I haven't had a chance to re-read this one to confirm the tags, and I've guessed a few based on MoJo's general writing style. I hope I've guessed right....

Shipper’s Digest 04: Fixing the Family Jewels

14,500 Words

SHIPPERS DIGEST 4 includes:

  • The South Shall Rise Again by Gina Rain
  • Barnacle Babies by Humbuggie
  • Payback by Madame Butterfly &
  • The Wrong Arm of the Law by Terma99

As we all know, Scully's a medical doctor, and there are occasions where that skill is needed to take care of Mulder's mistreated man-parts.  These are but 4 fics where such an indignity has been suffered.  I actually laughed out loud in some parts, which felt wrong under the circumstances, so I hope I'm not alone.

Again, I've linked to further reading on AO3...

God! Stop Following Me Around! (Shannon Phile Stories) by Neoxphile

32,000 Words

Book Cover: God! Stop Following Me Around! (Shannon Phile Stories) by Neoxphile

God! Stop Following Me Around!: Mulder and Scully are convinced that something, anything, is paranormal about MY life. They pester me about it. Frequently.

The Case of the Jolly Fat Men:  Sequel to God! Stop Following me around! Two years later a new pair of agents come to ask me for help on a case. And this time they think they're tracking Santa!

 

These masterpieces by Neoxphile tickled my funnybone. I do like a bit of snark, I must admit.  I laugh just thinking about these fics.

The cover image for Jolly Fat Men features photography (sans Santa) by NeoX's dad. The family aspect just adds to the joy these fics provide.  Thanks to NeoX for permission to post these here. 🙂 You can find Neoxphile's fics and much more good stuff at  Mulder's Creek.

Book Cover: April Fool's Day by Sister Spooky

Happy April Fool's Day! I hope Sister Spooky's foolery adds some Mulder and Scully fun to your day. 

Scully plays joke that gets her more than she thought she could ever get.    Skinner is the 'butt' of her practical joke.

Think Series by virtue_fluttering

Book Cover: Think Series by virtue_fluttering

Scully receives an unexpected and long overdue call while working undercover on a racy phone line.

The Think Series includes:

  • Not What you think
  • Is that what you think?
  • Try Not to Think
  • What Were You Thinking About?
  • Don't think too much

Some lighthearted silliness that eventually morphs into smut. 🙂 

I've taken a guess as to the dustjacket artist. The cover came from a review of the fic by Arianne at HOF. Please correct me if I'm wrong!

Sal From 4C by Dianora & MD1016

12,000 Words

Book Cover: Sal From 4C by Dianora & MD1016

Mulder and Scully have a fight to end all fights, then discover that making up makes it all worthwhile.

I don't know what it says about me that this is one of my favourite stories.  I love that Mulder and Scully's fight was so low down and dirty. I love that they're both still fuming. I love that Scully heads out in search of satisfaction, and I love the awkwardness of her chosen beau. I love the intensity of their passion, bordering on love/hate, and  I love that things don't quite go right.  I'd love to have seen this one on TV 😀 

Beds Are Burning by ShannonK

12,700 Words

Book Cover: Beds Are Burning by ShannonK

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 hospital for euthanasia and you come home to a sobbing family member who needs consoling and you discover you published a fic you didn't intend to until you'd contacted the author....   :'(

Shipper’s Digest 03: Heatstroke

24,000 Words

It was winter here the other day, so I'm warming up with some heat-related fics.  This is a collection of PWP set in the heat of summer. Summaries aren't really necessary because there's not much plot, it's generally just hot and sweaty MSR.

Includes:
Too Darn Hot by ML
Ignited by Piper Sargasso
Heat Stroke by TJ
Hot & Sticky by Eponine119
Hot by Beduini

PS. There are more heat fics to come. There are so many that I decided to save some for when the northern hemisphere needs heating up.

Lace-Up Fly series by Jacquie LaVa

26,400 words

Book Cover: Lace-Up Fly series by Jacquie LaVa

A series of stories centered around a boutique, a pair of leather jeans, and De Love!

Lace-Up Fly: What do you get when you mix Fox Mulder, black leather and no underwear? Ask Scully...

Night Train: A whole lotta money for unadulterated power... and our Scully succumbs without a fight...

Leather and Lake Water: What more can you give the couple who has black leather and a Night Train? Maybe some creative ways to utilize their toys...

Hook and Eye: More fashion fun times.

Broom Closet: 'I want to know when I became the prey, instead of the predator...'  This isn’t supposed to be part of the Lace-Up Fly series but Dressing Room #4, which is a follow up to this story, is. Don’t ask me. The more Jacquie LaVa smut, the better IMHO, so it’s here too.

Dressing Room #4: "... I think I've found a way to pay her back..."

Stilettos: It's all about De Shoes...

Jacquie does her humorotica so beautifully. She loves putting our favourite  agents in interesting positions, so to speak.  I originally thought there were only 4 parts to this series, but then I discovered two more stories in this universe, and added an extra one related to one of those.  This is the only place on the intermanets that you'll find this complete series, so enjoy.

Bonus DD in leather pants image included in table of contents for epub and pdf versions.

Trolling by Vickie Moseley & S Proto

16,700 Words

Book Cover: Trolling by Vickie Moseley & S Proto

The partners investigate a case of a missing child and run into a couple of obstacles along the way.

 

This feels like a Darin Morgan-type story, with Scully operating the slide projector and having the theory, while Mulder questions its validity as an X-File.  It was originally written for Virtual Season 8 (episode 23).  If you like case files, I can highly recommend the Virtual Season X site as a treasure trove.  They also made dustjackets for each 'episode' so the odd virtual episode will end up here.  This project continued the series with virtual episodes when it was unknown whether there would be a Season 8.  It branches off after Season 7's Je Souhaite, meaning the revelations and events in Requiem and official Season 8 onwards never happened.  Mulder and Scully are a couple, but the focus is on the case files rather than the relationship.  [This is a different project from the Alternative Season 8 that's previously been posted here.]

Shipper’s Digest 712: X-Copulation

25,000 words

I've been screencapping for the new xfphotos archive and happened to catch sight of this episode as it was autocapturing, which inspired me to do a post-ep anthology.  The first story is only PG rated, but it's a good laugh and a reminder of some of the events in the episode.

  1. Bill Scully Meets The X-Cops by Girlie_Girl7 (a smut-free appetiser)
  2. Inversion Layer by Blackwood
  3. Inevitable by Flynn
  4. The Thing With Feathers by Diana Battis
  5. Willow Park: Aftermath by Kelly Moreland

I've used the cover made for The Thing With Feathers in the dustjacket. This was made by Sofia J.

Hardball by Missy P

19,500 Words

Book Cover: 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.  

 

As often seems to happen, I found Missy's dustjacket after making a new one.  Hers is so much better than mine. 

X-trash now deleted cover. I never was 100% happy with this one so I wish I knew there was another before I uploaded...

Butt, Montana & Hellhole, Idaho by Jess M

8,900 Words

Book Cover: 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.

Haunted House by Analise

14,000 Words

Book Cover: Haunted House by Analise

Mulder and Scully are forced to spend the night in a haunted house.

Analise does the 'stuck in a haunted house' trope with humour and flair.  My favourite line had to be Mulder's "I've watched Scooby Doo... there should be lever around here somewhere..." (after which Scully finds it by accident).  Analise is also a real proper artist and has the dustjackets to prove it.

He Wore a Fedora Series by JHJArmstrong

10,000 words

Book Cover: He Wore a Fedora Series by JHJArmstrong

He Wore a Fedora: Mulder. Striptease.

Dancing Fool: How did Mulder prepare for his striptease? And how did
Scully handle the knowledge he was going to do it? Prequel to "He
Wore A Fedora." You should probably read (or re-read) that before
you tackle this.

Two to Tango: Mulder and Scully become partners in every sense of the word. Sequel to "Dancing Fool" and "He Wore A Fedora."

Another  frivolous fic for stress release.  This one features Stripper!Mulder doing his thing for Scully at a charity event.  I would have definitely preferred seeing this on TV rather than that nightmare inducing line dancing sequence, so I'm sad that M&S  don't belong to Jodi.  The introduction mentions '1-900-OH-SANTA' which I posted yesterday, but they're not related, so it's not necessary to read that before reading this.

1-900-OH-SANTA by J LaVa & TBishop

19,000 words

Book Cover: 1-900-OH-SANTA by J LaVa & TBishop

Scully is finding this Christmas particularly stressful until she takes matters into her own hands. (a little pun intended)

 

The Sisters in Smut, Exalted Queens of Lurid Fiction, Jacquie & Teresa, wrote this exceptional holiday-themed smutmonster. I hadn't planned to post this one yet, but since it's mentioned in tomorrow's 'He Wore a Fedora' I decided to post it today for reference. Just pretend it's Christmas in July.

Shipper’s Digest 02: Two Agents, One Tent

14,000 words

Another collection of tropey fics - this time it's two agents consorting in the one tent.  There are only three in this edition, but they're all longer PWPs, and some even snuck in a little plot. 

Circumnavigation by Suzanne Schramm
Sometimes you don't know where you're going until you
get there.

Wildcats by Sheryl Martin (Nantus)
You're not getting anything more than
sex, sex and romance... oh, did I mention sex?

He Otter Known Better by Manik
Mulder's fiendish plans for an erotic weekend go awry when a large weasel launches himself at Scully. A certain portion of Mulder's anatomy suffers several indignities, but in the end, everyone lives happily ever after.

    Scully dies...or does she? This is a story about the choices people are sometimes forced to make, and the aftermath and fallout of those choices. Angst, MSR
  • Extreme Measures [R]
    An odditity in the fanfic world, this is actually a Scully/Other AND an MSR at the same time, told from the "Other's" point of view.

    Alternate universe, XFNoir. Sometime in the near future, Mulder and Scully race against time to prevent the fruition of the project. Along the way, they make a horrific discovery of betrayal at the highest levels of government. Adult themes, violent content. 

In Dawson's own words:

As you should all now know, XFBandit is Dawson E. Rambo's psuedonym.

Bandit allows me to explore certain writing techniques. Most of the Bandit stories don't have any real heft to them. They're (forgive me) gossamer light tendrils of fiction, designed to allow me to test a certain theme, to write a scene I'd always wanted to see, or even just a single line of dialog that I'd made up and always wanted to see in a fic, but could never manage in any of my other stuff. (The line "...and kissing your partner is about six of them..." in Carnac Obsessions is one of those lines.)

I hope you enjoy my Bandit stories. I know I had fun writing 'em.

Brightwater Bunyip by FrangipaniDownunder

6,700 words

Book Cover: Brightwater Bunyip by FrangipaniDownunder

Set after season 11, Mulder and Scully are private consultants investigating an Australian cryptid legend, the Bunyip, in Queensland.

 

I can't say I've ever seen a bunyip, but there's rumoured to be a yowie not far from here.  I do enjoy FrangipaniDownunder's writing, and this short cryptid-fic is probably the closest Mulder and Scully have ever been to my house.  Maybe I could invite this freelance post S11 Mulder and Scully to visit my house and hunt for my yowie.  Just a note, I'm not a fan of the 'beyond impossible' pregnancy storyline so I appreciate this version of Moose & Squirrel, but baby-fans may be sad.

Tam Lin by Pequod

42,000 words

Book Cover: 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. 🙂 

Poconos by Jess M

17,000 words

Book Cover: Poconos by Jess M

Mulder and Scully looking into a series of mysterious deaths (do they ever do anything ELSE?) in that honeymoon capital of the world, the Poconos.

Another very sexy case file from Jess M. She stirs a large dollop of humour into this one and garnishes it with a smut-cherry on top. 

I'm into abandoned stuff, so I found this HuffPost Article quite interesting: The Honeymoon Capital of the World is now Beautifully Abandoned.

 

Smoking & Patch by Alanna & Michaela

25,000 words

Book Cover: 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.  Scully has dinner with an old boyfriend while they're out of town on a case, resulting in an irresistible dark and brooding Mulder.  Michaela and Alanna also toss a good serve of humour in this smoking hot fic and its sequel. 

Gourmet Groping I & II by The Pimpernel

20,000 words

Book Cover: Gourmet Groping I & II by The Pimpernel

You know you’d have accepted the bet too. Admit it.

The title doesn't do this fic any favours.  This one has more plot than porn, with a PG-13 rating for the first part which only makes it to an R in the second story.  But I think it's an interesting and vaguely plausible scenario they put themselves into, and the thought of sex up against a palm tree on the beach is one I'm happy to entertain.

 

Queen of Hearts by Syntax6

18,500 words

Book Cover: Queen of Hearts by Syntax6

In early season five, during Scully's resurrection and Mulder's crisis of faith, they travel to small-town Nebraska to investigate a series of portentous crop circles and end up plumbing the mysteries of the human heart.

Syntax6 returned to her fandom roots in 2018 to give us this special little casefile, with a couple of bonus tropes for good measure.  I tried to do an old-skool type cover to complement it, but collages have never been my strong point...

I suggest ficsave.xyz if you'd like to download from fanfiction.net.

Lessons Series by Jori & MoJo

53,000 words

Book Cover: Lessons Series by Jori & MoJo

Lessons I: Racked by Jori  - Scully picks the next game.
Lessons II: Head's Up by MoJo - After Racked, Mulder decides to teach Scully a new game.
Lessons III: Quiver by Jori - Scully tries to improve Mulder's aim.
Lessons IV: Fore Play by MoJo - Mulder engages in a little action on the fairway with Scully.
Lessons V: On the Fly by Jori - Scully teaches Mulder the finer art of using lines and handling his fly.
Lessons VI: Double Down by MoJo - Mulder shows Scully how to go *double down* in darts.
Lessons VII: Soaring by Jori - It's time to take learning to a new, higher level.
Lessons VIII: Joyride by MoJo - It's time to take learning to a new, higher level.
Lessons IX: Swing Time by Jori - After their previous 'accident', Scully and Mulder hit the bargain basement for their next lesson.
Lessons X: Fast Lane by MoJo - Mulder and Scully move into a faster lane.
Lessons XI: Field of Play by Jori - The games continue, but their meanings have changed so much. Scully gets her kicks with Mulder during a late night soccer match.
Lessons XII: Body Checking by MoJo - Mulder calls a penalty on Scully out on the ice.
Lessons XIII: Over the Net by Jori & MoJo - Mulder and Scully agree to meet on the courts for the ultimate singles match.
Lessons XIV: Bringing it Home by MoJo & Jori - Months after their first 'lesson' together on the baseball diamond, Mulder and Scully try to bring it on home.

After yesterday's mytharc fic, I figured some irreverent fun times were in order.  Jori & Mojo take the spirit of the baseball lesson at the end of The UnNatural and run wild with it.  These stories are overflowing with UST and innuendo and inappropriate partnerly behaviour in various settings until Moose & Squirrel finally figure out what the lessons are really about. 😉 

Original cover image from Jori's website. This cover is on the PDF & included in the ePub version.

Wine Series by Dianora

28,000 words

Book Cover: Wine Series by Dianora

Alcohol consumption and sex.  Pure mind candy with little redeeming social value.

Smut. Drunken, wild, crazy smut. Dianora lets them loose in the office,  at a renaissance fair, and on a pier by the lake, among other places.  Not only that, but there's more fun to do with board games and the mile high club.  What the story may lack in social value, it delivers in hot sexy times for this extremely dynamic and enthusiastic duo. The smut tags on this one rival those on One-Upmanship,  You're welcome. 😀 

One-Upmanship by TBishop & Jacquie LaVa

47,000 words

Book Cover: One-Upmanship by TBishop & Jacquie LaVa

Includes the prequel: Dormi Con Mi Socio by TBishop: Translation is roughly 'I Slept With My Partner' or so I am told.

One-Upmanship: To keep a great relationship going requires imagination and creativity - and our erstwhile FBI agents become a little too successful for their own good...

This is pure, unabashed smut, with a little bit of story thrown in for good measure. These two magnificent authors pool their depravity in an effort to raise the bar with regards to smutfic.  While the premise of this fic may not be entirely realistic, it's a fun fantasy (until it's not) - I particularly love Jacquie LaVa for her willingness to go anywhere for the sake of a satisfying experience. This one garnered more smut tags than any other fic I've posted.

You might recognise Jacquie LaVa's work as originally being published under a different name.  Unfortunately she withdrew a lot of her fics when she began publishing her own novels. Only the stories she co-authored remained on gossamer , reassigned to this pen name. I'm hoping to contact her to beg her to be allowed to republish the ones she wrote alone when I have the time to dedicate to giving that special little project all I have. 🙂 

Butterflies All Tied Up Universe by bugs

40,000 words

Book Cover: Butterflies All Tied Up Universe by bugs

Butterflies All Tied Up: Mulder and Scully are back to work at the X-files, but a madman in their midst finally sends their relationship in a new direction, and someone is watching.

Orchids in Bloom: A fluffy bit of smut, so those persons who are on a higher plane should fly away. Mulder comes home drunk from a bachelor's party and gets the third degree.

Even Doves Have Pride: In the three whirlwind months since M/S have become involved, you'd think they would be entwined in a congenial
union. Perhaps, but suddenly things are moving too quickly for Scully.

Even Doves Have Pride II: The moment of truth has arrived for Mulder and he's suffering from some anxiety.

This is bugs' first foray into fan fiction, which she acknowledges may be a tad unrealistic.  That thought did cross my mind on occasion, but it's not too difficult to go with it.  The entire story is told through the eyes of a third person, giving it a voyeuristic feel.  But I do love a third party perspective on the complicated Mulder-Scully relationship.

I'm now re-releasing this one as I've added the remaining stories in this universe to the file.  Bugs kindly created artwork for each of the stories, which you can find in the ePub & PDF versions.

Gradual Precipitation by Narida Law

Book Cover: Gradual Precipitation by Narida Law

Mulder gets in hot water with an agitated Scully.  A post Brand X fic.

Mulder and Scully in a laundromat.  What more can I say?  Spin cycle!

Trixie also made a cover for this fic, as did I.  As usual, everyone else does nice romantic collages, and I just do smut...

Speedo Optional by Thalia D’Muse

8,400 words

Book Cover: Speedo Optional by Thalia D'Muse

A string of bizarre murders send Mulder and Scully to a secluded
resort in Florida.

This is a casefile with the added complication of a rather uncomfortable setting for our agents.  Of course Mulder is a lot more amenable to going with the flow than Scully.

Arcadia Series by Ms31x129

9,800 words

Book Cover: Arcadia Series by Ms31x129

Filling in the gaps before, during and after Arcadia, with alternating POVs.

Yes it's another Arcadia fic.  This one's a lot shorter on plot than Illusions - it's pretty much just a fun, irreverant, frolicsome smutromp.  Scully gets to play a little one-on-one with Mulder, and it turns into one of those lurid fics that CC warned us about.  Ms AM has decided to out herself as her current author name: Ms31x129

Ms31x129 also provided her own cover, below, which is on the actual fics.

Arcadia I-V cover by Ms31x129

Continuity Series I & II by Alelou

2,200 words

Book Cover: Continuity Series I & II by Alelou

I: A look at season 7 from all things onwards in light of the revelations in Within.

II - Per Manum Fractorum: Missing dialogue that would have explained
much that is puzzling in Per Manum.

Finally a G-rated fic!  This is very funny.  Alelou fills in some missing scenes  to make more sense of Season 8.  We could really have used Alelou's help with more than just Season 8 storylines.  

As much as I liked how the two covers Tre made had very little continuity in themselves, I couldn't help but try to use a background and overlay to fill in some missing pieces myself to bring the two images together. These are the originals.

Shut Up, Mulder & Bitch by David S

Mulder and Scully go on a stakeout in rural backwoods Virginia. Scully gets her man.

Sequel - Maggie Scully makes an observation. Scully makes things right.

Two amusing stories: A perp that gets away, and some naughty little forest critters who also get away (after getting a show from two agents on a stakeout and taking some of their clothes with them). There's also an accidental switch-flicking faux pas during a second stakeout fail, and Scully makes Mulder pay for a few faux pas of his own. That might not make sense but I'm tired.

Calendar Girl II - NOTE: THIS SERIES REMAINS INCOMPLETE. 
I wish it had been finished, but I still enjoyed it knowing that I'd be left hanging. The plot is way better than CC's, and there are flashbacks to Season 7 episodes to keep the smut quota up.  You can choose whether or not to continue with CGII after CGI.

Their relationship survived the first year, but then everything changed. With one of the partners missing, the other goes on a quest of her own. Scully's new partner, Agent Nicole Larson, appeared in only one tiny segment of a story in Calendar Girl I.

  • EVERYTHING - On the Fourth of July, Scully ponders last year and what she has now that she didn't have then, and most importantly, what's now missing. NC-17

Carpe Felis Mortuus: How far would Mulder & Scully go for a little nookie?

Performance Art?: Mulder and Scully delve into the world of Modern Art… Some might call that kinky

According to Nic, this is 265.98% SMUT.  CFM is a rampantly smutcentric fic involving a frustrated Scully, a teasing Mulder, a beach, a rental car, and the line: "We're going to wash this car like you've never washed one before in your life."  It's early in their physical relationship and Scully's at a convention, so the sexual tension is extreme and they're both a bit desperate when Mulder turns up.

I've also added Performance Art? which is described by the authors as an homage to CFM. Unfortunately the "Carpe 2" mentioned in the headers for this fic has never eventuated to my knowledge.

I actually tried a few different illustrations of the car wash scene for this cover over the years, and thankfully I finally managed to make one that wasn't too porny!  😀

Note: I keep getting reports of a broken link for this book, but every time I test them they work ok.  If you get an error, try clicking the link a second time, and if the error still comes up, please note which link it is in the "details" area on the report.  Thanks. I appreciate the reports, and will fix them if I can find them.

The first illustration is by Theresa.  Theresa's art can be found at http://mindseye.tcjahn.com. Naturally my evil spirit turned up first one, then TWO original dustjackets a few weeks after posting mine. I've added the version from Plausible Deniability as the online cover, and Maybe Amanda's dustjacket is below. The X-trash version is still embedded in the ePub and PDF.

CONTENT WARNING: Ladies and gentlemen, please return to your seats. The captain has turned on the Fasten Seatbelts sign, as we expect to encounter some turbulent SMUT.

In case that didn't clue you in, this is pure, unadulterated smut.  It's one of those stories that's reached legendary status in the fandom, to the extent that it has even been mentioned by Gillian Anderson.  Thanks to Trelawney there are a few dustjackets for Jess's fics, so there are more to come.
