A tribute to Mulder for Father's Day.

Dad!Mulder can be a beautiful thing, if it doesn't remind you of how badly the whole William thing was handled in canon. This is just a short series set some time after William's birth.

Fortunately Donna's made an attempt to make things right in this one, and there's even some bonus Skinner!Torture 🙂

When you finally have everything you ever wanted, that’s when you have the most to lose.

Shock! Season 9 Fic!

This is set around 6 months after Existence, as Scully returns to work after maternity leave.  Mulder hasn't had to take off so since being fired from the bureau he gets to be a stay at home dad. Mulder and Scully are married.

This is the only time I've ever approved of Scully taking Mulder's last name after their marriage, since she's doing so to stick it to Kersh, who will have to refer to her as "Agent Mulder".  I love these little details authors come up with to torment characters...

 

Reprise by aka “Jake”

Reprise cover

Thirty years after Eugene Victor Tooms was mangled to death inside a moving escalator, several murder victims are discovered with their livers missing, ripped from their bodies without the aid of cutting tools. There are no identifiable points of entry at any of the crime scenes. Could Tooms be back?

This is a special mother's day bonus fic. Somehow aka "Jake" or this fic seems to mess with my computer somehow and I lose everything I write about it... Not only did I lost this original post, I only have a link to Jake's website because the long, involved feedback for this story and request to host some of her fics that I wrote to her vanished from my computer before I could send it. That was over 6 months ago and I haven't managed to recreate it yet.

Jake allayed so many of my fears with this story. So much was wrong with the Season 11 Finale, and I was so disappointed that Scully didn't get to finally settle down with her existing family - Mulder & William - and breathe at last. Instead, she was given another unplanned pregnancy when she had never had any agency over her fertility and hadn't recovered from the fallout from her previous one. I realise that being roughly Scully's age, I projected a lot of my own fears and desires onto her, and Jake has proven to me that Scully can take it all in her stride and enjoy this time of her life.  Mulder and Scully have moved to a new level of familiarity and banter, and this story gave me a glimpse of a future that I couldn't even have imagined in my post-S11 despair.

Although my parental c-PTSD usually has me avoiding pregnancy, baby and kidfic, very occasionally I do manage to read and enjoy them... Since I dragged out a few kidfics to consider for this Mother's Day post I've decided to share a few more of them this week.  🙂

Book Cover: Abandoned & Apart by ML

One day, the Gunmen just disappeared.

This was ML's wish for how the X-Files would end.

A Season 9 Fic with William in it. Not the usual fic you'll find uploaded here but there was a request in a facebook group for Mulder secretly meeting with Scully while he was on the run in Season 9 and this one kind of fitted the bill.   This includes the original story "Abandoned" plus the subsequent story, "Apart" which details the events of Season 9 from Mulder's POV.

It's been so long since I've read these that I can't think of tags to add, sorry.

Book Cover: Remember Me? by Caroline O

Mulder and Scully have been forcibly separated from each other for fifteen months. Scully has a new life, but no knowledge of her previous one.

Happy Mother's Day to mothers of all descriptions. A bonus fic for the occasion: this fic is one that's even enjoyable for those of us who don't do kidfic.  Scully has a baby, and a partner, but it's not all as it seems. There are many twists and turns to keep you reading.

Book Cover: Guardian & Renewal by Amy Vincent

Amy notes: "When I first watched "The Ehrlenmeyer Flask," I was still offline and cut off from other Philes -- in other words, I feared I had just seen the end of one of my favorite shows. I was very disappointed -- as good an episode as that was, I couldn't bear to think of it all ending that way. I thought up my own version of how I would have "liked" to see the show wrap up. Later, of course, I learned that the show would return, and tossed this idea out of my mind. A few weeks ago, though, I decided to put a different spin on it and turn it into this story."

This fic assumes that Mulder left the FBI at the end of Season One. He and Scully do find each other again, before Mulder makes a sacrifice that impacts them all. Angst ensues.

Book Cover: Eden Series by Jacquie LaVa

Part One: The Other Side of Eden - If you had your memories torn away from you... the very essence of what made you human... what would you become? Mulder and Scully are about to find out...

Part Two: Eden in the City - As Mulder and Scully attempt to make a life for themselves and their new child, the creator of the deadly serum just won't let them be...

Part Three: Re-Inventing Eden - Mulder and Scully are forced to send their child into hiding to save him from the threat of a monstrous threat...

Part Four: To Keep Eden Safe - Upon the receipt of yet more threatening notes, and the enforced protection of our Agents' only child... Mulder and Scully must face the evidence at hand, and find a way to trap a monster...

Part Five: Regaining Eden - It's time to get it back, all of it... and Mulder and Scully are ready to kick ass...

I wanted to find a daddy!Mulder fic to post for US Fathers' Day, but I'm allergic to kidfic.  I've made it through the thoroughly enjoyable first book in this series before my kidficphobia set in and I couldn't go on. It's nothing to do with the actual fic, which is by an author I adore and comes recommended by others, it's my own issue which I wish I could overcome...

In The Other Side of Eden Mulder and Scully are dumped on a deserted island, having been given a serum to erase all their memory.  Angst & smut ensues, and I assume continues on into the remainder of the series.  The tags cover the first book, but I can't confirm whether or not they apply to the rest.

Butterflies All Tied Up Universe by bugs

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.

An epic post-colonization series. This includes the complete story and the bonus extras.

I'm not big on post-col, but I really enjoyed the way Donna threw all the characters into the destruction and rebuilding of their worlds in this one.  It's a long one, written over about 10 years.

Summary: The past cannot help but have an irrevocable effect on the present.

Author's Note:  This series -- which began with what I thought would be a single, stand-alone vignette -- became a bit of an experiment. I wanted to see if I could tell a story in sequential fragments that were almost snapshots, in that each section only captures a small part of the whole, and each is told from a different point of view. As with any experiment you never know if you're concocting something interesting or are on the verge of blowing up the lab -- I hope that here I succeeded in the former and not the latter. 🙂

This is a bit of a different one.  It's a long story emerging from a series of vignettes. I was a little confused at first - it actually starts in the future but jumps back and forth in time, to back as far as before Leonard Betts. Apart from that I found it very intriguing.  I always have trouble tagging, but I had even more difficulty with this one...
