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. 😉

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...

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.

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...

Book Cover: Untitled Random Casefile #4664 by JessM

Mulder and Scully set out to solve a case. The Author tags along. Literally.

This fic makes me want to proposition Jess too... if only I didn't have to compete with Mulder and Scully to do so.  I love this, in the same way that I love it when the show makes fun of itself.   Jess bravely Mary-Sue's herself in order to visit Moose & Squirrel off-season and discovers that their off-screen personas are exactly as we imagine...

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.

Continuity Series I & II by Alelou

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.
