  2. Autopsy Fun Aftermath: Time to pay the piper...
  3. Autopsy Fun For Real: Finally Scully's getting some real autopsy fun.
  4. Autopsy Fun Continued: Continues where 'Autopsy Fun' left off

What's more fun than our agents engaging in fun times on the job, and particularly in completely inappropriate places? The joys of PWP 😀

The case file is perfunctory in this one. It just balances out the porn:plot ratio a little.

Stain of Purity by Nicknoc

Stain of Purity cover

Mulder and Scully investigate a series of abductions.

Another Scully-as-decoy story with all the accompanying Mulder!Protectiveness. Boundaries are pushed and then obliterated.  Another great fic from a fellow Aussie.

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.

Path of Thorns (The) by Smurf

53,000 Words

Path of Thorns cover

Through a tragic experience, Scully learns that the path of thorns cannot be walked alone.

This is another fic that seems to have fallen into the black hole of the internet, and only it's dustjacket remained to let me know of its existence.

Smurf goes all out on the angst and the Scullytorture in this one. Scully battles with her human frailty, and Mulder's there to support her when she eventually allows it.

Gates of Hell by AlienQueequeg

54,000 Words

Gates of Hell cover

In the first case after her remission from cancer, Scully is forced to confront a disturbing time in her past. Ten bodies are found buried outside an abandoned hospital in Northern California, all desecrated in a way that is reminiscent of horrifying medical experiments that took place there almost fifty years ago. While navigating the complexities of a changing relationship, Scully and Mulder work to uncover a long-buried evil and hope to solve a cold case that has haunted Scully for years.

CW: violence, death, medical stuff, smut

A Sunday bonus fic just because it's a relatively recent fic from AO3 and I loved it.

Alienqueequeg sounds like she had to research an entire paper or two to write this one. The flashbacks to life with Melissa gave it extra depth as well. As a bat carer and having rabies first aid drilled into me I kept wanting to yell at my screen to flush out the wound rather than band-aid it and had to keep reminding myself that that's probably irrelevant when someone's not bitten. I can however confirm that it's hard to miss the feel of those little batty teeth when they bite... but I suppose they could just spit into an open wound. 😉   OK I'm rambling again.  Just go read it if you haven't already.

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 🙂

Gatsby Trilogy by Nicole Perry

16,000 Words

Gatsby cover

Nicole pays homage to F Scott Fitzgerald in this AU third party observation of our beloved characters.

Thank you to Nina (xphilernj) for suggesting this one and for providing Gatsby III, which had long ago fallen off the internet.

This isn't the sort of thing I normally read, but I really enjoyed it. Nicole's writing is on point and puts you right in there amongst all the action. I had to pause after reading it to absorb it all.  Kudos to Nicole..

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.

Risqué (and other Magik) by Pywacket

12,000 Words

Pywacket Anthology cover

An anthology of Stories from Pywacket:

  1. Impure thoughts: A man walks into a bar.
  2. Exorcism in Blue: By all rights, this should have been an excruciating weekend. He had been reeling from his mother’s death, still coming to grips with Samantha’s fate, when he received a call from the realtor who usually handled the summer rental of the house.
  3. All the Time in the World: Most people live their lives as if they had all the time in the world. She and Mulder are not like most people.
  4. That Kind of Girl: “I can’t believe you want to watch this movie.”
  5. Risqué: For days, he’d watched a half naked Scully shiver with the cold.

I'd planned to upload Risqué for this week's hump day PWP, but when I checked to see who'd made the dustjacket I found that Pywacket only had 5 stories, so I threw them all in, including the two with covers made by ktblle. 🙂   Enjoy.

As by Dri

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. 😉

Surfacing by Leyla Harrison

2,000 Words

Surfacing cover

Summary withheld by author.  This story takes place in the Gethsemane/Redux arc.

This Hump Day PWP is brought to you by the letter C. I'm currently recovering from yesterday's regular cancer screening.

The good news is that I'm now over 7 years cancer free.  The bad news (for me) is that I didn't have Fox Mulder to personally help me through it in the way Scully did in this fic.  The worst news is that so many others haven't survived. Leyla's writing came from that perspective, and she will always live on in her stories, just as her name is now canon in The X-Files universe.

Please do regular checks and screenings and see your doctor if you have concerns. Listen to your body.

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...

ELS by Dawson Rambo

207,000 Words

ELS cover

While waiting on the outcome of an OPR investigation Mulder and Scully are assigned to the ISU. Mulder is forced to profile again.

According to Dawson's webpage: The question most often asked by first-time visitors to this page and this novel is, "What does ELS stand for?" It's an acronym. Saying more than that would spoil this novel beyond repair. So, you'll have to read to find out.

This fandom is so blessed to have writers of the calibre of Dawson E Rambo. This is another of his epic fics that meanders through a lot of angst and UST  as they deal with their feelings towards each other and solve multiple cases.

 

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.

Seraphine cover

Another forest; another cryptid; another moment of life-changing clarity in which Mulder and Scully embark on a journey of the heart, and other improbable things.

Monika's packed this full of the all-important smut, whilst maintaining the UST for as long as possible with this original tale.

Dust Series by Blue Samutra

Dust cover

Dust: It’s a long road back from Philadelphia

Yellow Light: It’s like Groundhog Day

Snow: Since we lost the X-Files I’ve had a lot of time to think about my priorities, and I’ve realized that you’re one of them. I think you have been for a long time…”

Feeling: Scully struggles to come to terms with her changing relationship with Mulder

Complicated: Things like this happen to other people. they don't happen to Dana Scully.

Dust Out the Demons: Elton solves all ills

This starts with a jealous Mulder immediately following "Never Again". I got a little confused timeline-wise after that as it seemed to go to Season 6 before heading back to season 4 and 5. Just to with it and enjoy the angsty smut. 🙂

Weekend in Paris, A by Dani Payson

A Weekend in Paris cover

Taking place about a month after their 'encounters' in Henrico County,
Virginia, Mulder decides he wants to take Scully to Paris for the weekend
as a belated birthday present.

Believe it or not, today's bonus Scully's birthday fic is set in Season 11!!!

I know I like to pretend that nothing post Season 7 exists - I mustn't have noticed that this was Season 11 before I read it but I'm certainly glad I gave it a chance.   Happy birthday, Scully. Belated or otherwise.

Silent Sea, The by Xphilernj

42,000 Words

Silent Sea Cover

The silent sea can be unforgiving at times, but true love is undaunting and forgiving.

Skinner's feeling shippy, so he sends them both to the Virgin Islands on a missing persons case with some extra vacation days.

This story is a quite the departure from Xphilernj's usual short vignettes.  She even came up with her own local mythology story to involve our agents in a rare trip to the US Virgin Islands.

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.

Book Cover: Bed & Breakfast Series by DavidS, Tess, Jacquie Lava & ga

I’ve never been a B&B type of guy. Until now. Until Scully.

Mulder and Scully and a vacation at a B&B.

This fic is the ultimate in escapism; it's  the beauty of what an unencumbered M&S in love look like.   It started as a IWTB Mailing List punishment fic, handed out over grave misdemeanors such as posting a story twice to the list.  There are quite a few really juicy fics resulting from such punishment, and I'm hoping to collect as many as possible and combine in one volume here.

Meanwhile, this is the final story in my daily PWP distraction from US political drama postings, I hope. I'd like to think that as long as Mulder and Scully are doing the wild thing, all is right in the world.  Hopefully we're back to M, W & F posts. 🙂

Hydrotherapy, Water Torture & A Healing Touch by Krikkit

3,000 Words

Hydrotherapy Series cover

Hydrotherapy: What better way to unwind after a long, hard day?

Water Torture: Eavesdropping isn’t always such a good idea.

A Healing Touch: Mulder and Scully finally give in.

Some bonus PWP as a distraction from world events.  Hang on in there.

I've used a cover made by Jamie over at thejfiles.com. I can't say that it belongs to this fic, but I can't say it belongs to any other fic, so it's here. 🙂

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. 😉

Lost Series, The by Wintersong

204,000 Words

Lost series cover

The Lost: Mulder and Scully are trapped in the remote wilderness and the art of surviving was not what they expected.

The Found: In the midst of an explosively escalating serial arson case, Mulder and Scully must come to terms with the changes that six months in the wilderness have wrought in themselves and those around them.

Alphas: Mulder, Scully and the rest of the X-Files Division struggle with new realities and the changing of old relationships when the reopening of a closed murder investigation draws them into a shadowy culture thousands of years old.

This starts with an unforgettable story of Scully and Mulder's survival in the woods having been taken there by a perp.  Scully's strength and ingenuity keeps them alive before they're ultimately reunited with civilisation.  Once they return they're forced to San Diego to help with a case involving Scully's brother.   Then finally they have to face themselves and each other.

Having a Happy X-Mas by Ten

Having a Happy X-Mas cover

Let's continue Christmas morning 1998...

This story continues on from "How the Ghosts Stole Christmas".

I've been convinced that I could probably post another festive fic since one of the fourteen wasn't holiday themed, so here's a short, sweet 1998 post HTGSC fic by a fellow Aussie who hadn't actually seen the episodes yet because we were always months behind the USA.  😀

I've used a collage by Tere for the cover.  Tere was probably the artist who inspired me to experiment a bit more with my own digital art, and she also shared a lot of brushes and textures etc, which are still available from classic.tere-art.com (via the wayback machine).

Twelfth Night by Marigold

It was only a kiss.

This fic follows the ups and downs during the 12 days from the post-Zombie kiss in Millennium. Poor Mulder suffers a few indignities, but he's nothing if not resilient.

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. 🙂

Resolutions by JessM

Resolutions cover

After hearing Mr. Carter say that our beloved sexually frustrated agents would indulge in some “traditional” practice on New Years Eve, and the cynical chorus of “what, singing Auld Lang Syne?” from fans, I decided we all know what we WANT them to do. This has no plot, no redeaming social values, lots of sexy Scrabble and some other games. Enjoy.

Jess brings our post-Diana-era agents back together and turns the UST up to 11, hovering there until the much-anticipated Y2K arrival. A sexy fic to counteract the recent PG postings 🙂

Trigger Stories by PhileyX

40,000 Words

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.

Week Before Christmas by Rafferty

Simple Gifts by Livasnaps

Simple Gifts cover

A week apart following the events of Millennium gives Mulder and Scully a lot of time to think. They come to the decision that a late Christmas is MUCH better than none at all.

This one's a bit of a rollercoaster ride of emotions for Scully as she spends Christmas with her family before returning for Millennium.  It does slip into mild sappiness at the end, although it might have just been that I was getting impatient  waiting for the good bits 😉 but there are plenty of feel good moments along the way.

Covenant by Rhondda Lake

27,500 Words

Covenant cover

Covenant:  Mulder & Scully have to come to term with some changes.  Takes place before Leonard Betts.

Covenant II: Monsters: Sequel to "Covenant". While exploring all the levels of their 'new' partnership Scully takes on a case involving deaths strange enough no one can deny they are X-Files. Their only link, abused children. Their only lead. A child who can see Mulder. Not all Monsters live in closets.

Covenant III: Death and the Maiden: This is a bonus extra for those who can't get enough glowing blue Mulder, but it WAS NEVER COMPLETED. The extra 7,000 words are not included in the overall word count.

This is a classic fic by Rhondda, but I never knew it continued after the original story until it was mentioned recently on facebook.  I then discovered a part 3, but sadly it was shelved so Rhondda could finish other ongoing stories and never picked back up. Consequently you won't find it online.

I'm pretty sure JJ (cover artist) is Julie Jekel, but I'm too tired to delve into confirming that right now.

March by Blue Samutra

50,000 words

Book Cover: March by Blue Samutra

Six Hours in New York is included as a prologue.

Set post-Tithonus, before Two Fathers. A routine murder investigation in Chicago where not everything is as it seems.

Blue Samutra is a fabulous author who also made great dustjackets, so she's a particular favourite of mine. 😉

This is a compelling story with a slightly fragile Scully and protective Mulder sent to Chicago after a rather grisly murder by AD Cassidy, much to AD Kersh's disdain, to lure out a serial killer.

While they're not exactly working undercover, they do have to stake out a nightclub and dress the part, so I've added the undercover tag for the little dress-up scenario which has Mulder quite enraptured. 🙂

Six Hours in New York is an achingly beautiful Maggie Scully perspective of Mulder's arrival at the hospital in NY that really sets the scene of where our agents are at in their personal relationship (0bviously One Son hasn't happened yet though).

Shipper’s Digest 05: Halloween

A selection of steamy stories where our heroes do the horizontal hula at Halloween. Definitely Adults Only!!!

  4. The Grim Reaper by Amy McClure

  8. And Dance by the Light of the Moon by RivkaT & MustangSally
  9. Master of Reality by Khyber

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.

All Hallow’s Eve series by Windsinger

All Hallow's Eve cover
Part of the All Hallow's Eve series:

Driving back to Washington on Halloween evening Mulder and Scully see strange lights in the sky over rural Maryland, stop to investigate, and find themselves spending a night they will not soon forget.

This one started out fairly painlessly, but Sue pushed the angst up each year as she added a new volume and sucked us in further.  But wait, there's more! There's also a shorter story called "The Messenger" that works as an epilogue which I'll post separately as it fits into a few of the different universes that Windsinger was writing at the time.  (There's a Cliff's notes guide to all the series involved at the end of that fic so you can follow it without having to read every story. )

Truth and Consequences by Raine & Marsha Taylor

Truth and Consequences cover

After Gethsemane, Scully and Mulder decide to pay a visit to their friend Dr. Scanlon.

Post Gethsemane stories are usually quite intriguing, and this one is no exception.

Gruesome child murders once again bring Mulder and Scully to a small town, this time for a long-term undercover assignment.  Things get complicated in both good and bad ways as they try to catch their killer.

As far as I know, this story hasn't been generally available on the web for a long time, so I'm glad to make it available again.

Anniversary & Birthday by JessM

Anniversary & Birthday cover

Two very loosely-connected companion fics:

Anniversary: Scully reaches a turning point in her relationship with Mulder.

Birthday: On the day of his 38th birthday, Mulder decides to reveal the truth to Scully and see where it gets him… (where do you think?)

This final Mulder's Birthday story comes with a bonus anniversary fic. Twice the fun!

33,000 Words

Legend of the Perfect Union cover

A horrific investigation leads to unprofessional conduct charges against Scully and Mulder, forcing them to question themselves and each other. When they decide to listen to each other, a rather explosive situation develops at a church with a unique history.

This is a beautifully written, action packed fic in which Mulder and Scully have to defend themselves and their actions on a case before attending the wedding of a friend of Scully's.  Sparks fly.

It's rated PG-13 but I've added the higher rating because it's bordering an R in my opinion.  Well worth the read.

This is Anne's response to "Gethsemane", written over the long summer break while waiting for season 5.

This version is rated NC-17. There is a version with the final chapter rated R instead available at annehaynes.xf-redux.com

 

The cover for this one was made from the collage "Contemplation" by Anne Haynes.

Another reminder that neither Teena nor "Carl" had first names at this point and are Caroline and James in this story.

University by JessM Cover

Mulder and Scully go undercover at a University and come in contact with a whole lot of subliminal messages

Jess has rated this PG-13, but I'd probably rate it a little higher due to Mulder's dirty mind.

Jess turns the Mulder!Innuendo up to 11 in this fic. They're a Mulder and Scully who are very comfortable with each other, but the UST is off the charts, particularly with Mulder. I love Jess's writing, but she's a big tease in this one!

Book of Acts, The, by Brandon D Ray

Book of Acts cover

This is a series of thematically-connected stories in which I attempt to stretch the limits of our heroes' sexuality. Just a little; not too much, and I am striving to stay at least within shouting distance of a reasonable extrapolation of character.

  1. Act of Faith
  2. Act of Acceptance
  3. Act of Indiscretion
  4. Act of Desperation

 

Parabiosis by Penumbra

59,000 Words

Book Cover: Parabiosis by Penumbra

Science and Mysticism conjoin. A detailed look at season 7. (Rated R)

This story is supplemented by an NC-17 'addendum to casefile' 'Upsidaisium', which is included.  Upsidaisium is set around Gethsemane which is a bit confusing but smut is smut. 

Scully dared herself to give in to this life, to call this enough - dire middle-of-the-nights with this unbelievable parabiosis arcing between them, and the daytime eternities of pretending there was nothing new.

And now when he wanted to lie with her, kissing and talking, she thought of how they would act tomorrow, of the subsequent days until they could be like this again, and she felt a certain level of bitterness at the sham of her life, bitterness he dispelled with his hands and mouth, and with his unspoken assurance that the only certain thing we have is now.

Penumbra really has a way with words. I was really surprised that I had to create a dustjacket for this one because it's such a legendary fic.  There must be one somewhere that I don't know about. I did, however, find this fanart for it by skuuri at deviantart/ankathehuman at tumblr:

Snapshot by Dawson E Rambo

125,000 Words

Book Cover: Snapshot by Dawson E Rambo

Dawson Rambo thought he was writing a vignette about Mulder & Scully's need for comfort from each other after a tough case. In fact he was writing a novel expanding on this and veering into a mytharc-based X-File epic which puts them up against all kinds of agencies with initialisms from all over the alphabet.

This one's a classic in early MSR. It's an action-adventure-romance written in early season 4 and while it was intended as a vignette it got a bit carried away.

Dawson was flying by the seat of his pants through most of this one, but I think without his ongoing author's notes it won't be so obvious.  I've moved the majority of the notes to the end of the fic, because there were nearly 10,000 words in disclaimers and notes alone, and I don't think you.ll need the detailed instructions on how to ask for missing chapters using his auto email response while reading a complete version.  I've still included them all for nostalgic purposes; you just have to go to the end of the fic to read through them.  For the full 1997 experience you can flick back and forth using the table of contents on the PDF or ePub versions.  You will learn that you could possibly have obtained an Adobe Acrobat copy back then, and you could get a zip version if you didn't have a Mac. 😉

You should at least have a glimpse at the end notes when you've finished reading though. There are  some interesting glimpses into Dawson's mind as he's writing. It's interesting to see what's happening in his head as he's writing, and the author answers a few long-standing curiosities about himself at one stage.  😀

First Time Jitters: In the middle of a fight, Scully makes a stunning confession that prompts Mulder to act on his feelings.

Jitters 2: M/S embark on married life and Mulder sets out to teach Scully about all the things she's been missing.

Jitters 3: Scully's education continues. Wedding bells are in the air.

D'oh. I finally upgraded the site to https the other day, so I had to type these book URLs in from scratch... and I got the site URL wrong... 😀  I've now corrected this.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  I was actually expecting the whole site to break when I did that so I'm glad it was such a simple error!

You can thank Lacy, who requested this series.  I'm planning to add more of Donnilee's fics since she's kind enough to have made dustjackets for most of them.... and I assure you that's not the only reason! 😀

There are 3 stories in this series, so 3 dustjackets are included in the epub and PDF versions.

Mulder and Scully are called to Horizon, Montana to investigate a mysterious and gruesome death.

Lepus Arcticus has to be one of my all-time favourite authors and I really need to include more of her fics here.

This one is a case file set in the cancer arc, and it's full of feels and truly mindblowing.

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. 😉

Basketball Therapy by Kel

Book Cover: Basketball Therapy by Kel

Set shortly before Tithonus, this story explores life in the bullpen, where tedium and background checks are the order of the day. When Scully gets drawn into an investigation at a Maryland hospital, Mulder gets trapped in a deadly hostage situation.

Didn't Mulder seem relaxed and well-adjusted in Tithonus? How was that possible? Why wasn't he out looking for alien colonists, fighting the future? Read on; it will be revealed.

 

Kel zeroes in on that IDGAF Mulder of early season 6 and gives him some context.  She also puts that waterbed to good use. 😉

Book Cover: Green Silk by Eowyn Evenstar

This version includes the short Christmas fic, The Present.

The Present: Scully receives a mysterious Christmas gift.

Green Silk: Mulder overhears Scully and her sister discussing whether Mulder might be gay. He has to prove her wrong.

Green Silk has some classic fic elements like Jealous!Mulder, Sexy!Scully, a sexist small town cop, and some frenzied season 3-4 smut...

It's been a while since I posted so I hope I remember everything I have to do 🙂 

 

From the Ashes by J Greco

60,000 Words

Book Cover: From the Ashes by J Greco

When Mulder is accused of sexual assault by a confused young girl, it begins an odyssey which will cause him to doubt every aspect of his life. But as Scully works to find out the hidden truth behind the events, Mulder realizes that she is the one truth upon which he can always rely.

 

Jamie finds a number of imaginative ways in which to torture Mulder, and Scully is the only one he can trust to help him through an extremely difficult time.  There's lots of love in this one - no smut - but it doesn't seem to be lacking.  It's a sensitive, heartwrenching (but somehow at the same time heartwarming) novel that draws our agents closer together.  Note - there are references to sexual assault but no gory details.

Jamie's Mulder is spot on with his comebacks.  His ability to make light of a situation with lines like “I have to admit, Scully, punching me in the face seems to be more than the passing fad I had originally hoped” adds some levity to  an otherwise angsty fic.

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.

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...

Shipper’s Digest 619: UnNatural Attraction

28,000 Words

I had trouble deciding what to post today, and when in doubt, turn to smut. This anthology contains seven innings, all with home runs.

  1. Backstop by Fialka: UnNatural smut biscuit
  2. Batting Practice by Shanda: post-ep smut
  3. Alternate Ending - The Unnatural by icedteainthebag: Home Run!
  4. Exhibitionism Inspired by Baseball by DiAlex: Who would have known that all it took was a little game of baseball....
  5. No More Giants by KrisMac: Unnecessary Things
  6. Balls, Boys & Birthday Gifts I & II by DenyTheTruth: What was going through Scully's mind during her and Mulder's little batting session? And what comes after the credit ran?
  7. Sexual Diversity in Chicago by haphazard method: You mean the title's not enough? Another MSR smutfest, inspired by Mulder's "Get over here, Scully" in The Unnatural.

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy by Jenna Tooms

51,000 Words

Book Cover: Fumbling Towards Ecstasy by Jenna Tooms

Scully comes to Mulder with a wound only he can heal.

Content Warning: non-con (past)

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy was a popular album by Sarah McLachlan back in the day. This time Jenna's used each track as inspiration for a chapter.  This one could be a little implausible, but the same could be said of at least 9/10 of all excuses for smut - plus if plausibility was a problem for you you wouldn't be watching the X-Files or reading its fanfic.  There's some hot monkey loving in Jenna's story, and Mulder is certainly enthusiastic to help.

If you're looking for Ryo Sen's angstfest of the same name, you can find it here.

Fumbling Towards Ecstasy by Ryo Sen

46,000 words

Book Cover: Fumbling Towards Ecstasy by Ryo Sen

Scully and Mulder argue over the Ephesian case and come to a new understanding about their relationship.

This is a bit of an angstfest from Ryo Sen, who keeps us teetering on the edge. The ending is probably a little bit on the sappy side for my taste, but for those into more of a smutfest than an angstfest, I've also posted Jenna Tooms' "Fumbling Towards Ecstasy" for you. This one's set after "The Field Where I Died", an ep that needed a little fixing. It's also a reminder that Teena Mulder didn't actually have a name for a very long time meaning authors had to make one up, and Ann, being Samantha's middle name, was a popular choice. Mulder's mother is also rather out of character considering what we knew of her later, so put on your Sarah McLachlan CD and get your mind to shift back to early season 4...

PS There is a character death but it happened in canon too.

Contains: Of Cabbages and Kings, Impossible Things, More Than Nothing, & Joining the Dance.

Cancer Arc: As Scully's cancer worsens, Mulder and she grow closer together, both learning that the only chance they have to survive is to draw strength from each other.

This one begins as a really sweet romance, with Mulder and Scully opening up to each other during Scully's cancer. It ends the same way, only with some (initially awkward) smut.

He Wore a Fedora Series by JHJArmstrong

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.

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.

Healing Waters Series by xgirl

56,000 Words

Book Cover: Healing Waters Series by xgirl
Part of the Crossing Lines series:

XGirl continues the Crossing Lines universe, taking Mulder and Scully from after Sixth Extinction through most of Season 7 with angst and love.  There are two R rated stories in this section - if you want to skip the smut, XGirl has PG rated versions on her website.  

I: Truths Untold: In the dark hours before the early morning, the greatest truths out there may well be the unspoken ones. [PG]
II: Reconnection: A day at the beach and a story about a boy and his sandcastle spaceship. [PG]
III: Acceptance: Mulder and Scully take a significant personal step forward after a severe blow to his psyche. (Sein und Seit/Closure) [R]
IV: Just Breathe: Scully finds it difficult to deal with a side of Mulder she's never seen before in the aftermath of her adventure with CSM (En Ami). [PG]
V: Truths Revealed: Mulder and Scully realize that they have to deal with the memory of Diana if they want to move ahead. (all things) [PG]
VI: Waters Edge: The end of the road finally arrives for Mulder and Scully.[R]

XGirl's thoughts on the Post-Fight the Future X-Files (and even post Redux) very much mirror my own. It lost momentum. It tried to crush the Mulder-Scully dynamic, before going on to crush their spirits and change their beliefs.  Her website, xgirl's x-files x-perience, has an analysis of each episode, both on the original watch and a rewatch on the 20th anniversary. The Crossing Lines universe is her attempt to fix up some of the wrongs in Seasons 6 and 7.

XGirl's dustjackets, included in the epub & PDF versions.

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.

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. 🙂

AgentMulder.  Held captive by a madman, Mulder must stay alive long enough for Scully to find him. He may not have a choice.

I admit that I haven't read this one yet, but I was looking for a fic set around the Fourth of July, and this one has beautiful covers by XScout.  It's a little confusing because the longest fic, 'I'll Be Seeing You' is based on the original 'I Know Someone' series, but then the final part, 'Not Without Permission' says "Reading ‘I Know Someone’ is unnecessary as it is including in ‘IBSY’. "   I can't advise what's best, so it's up to you.   I'm also unaware of whether there's any smut in this one... sorry.  I might set it for my night time reading tonight... 

 

 

Collages for all parts of the series by XScout.

Metamorphosis by Annie Sewell-Jennings

14,800 words

Book Cover: Metamorphosis by Annie Sewell-Jennings

A photograph of Mulder and Scully together brings Mulder to ask himself a question that he can’t answer by himself.

After the burning of their office, Annie takes us into an alternative timeline where a moment of realisation leads to some deliciously frenzied and intense smut. 

One Belief Away by Laura Blaurosen

20,000 Words

Book Cover: One Belief Away by Laura Blaurosen

Mulder and Scully are called out on an investigation involving a supposedly haunted house with a murderous ghost. They also find out a few other things (unrelated to the case) while they are there.

This one's a brief Mulder/other, resulting in some intense Scully jealousy.  Don't worry, it ends as it should ;-).  I'm still excited that I got to go on a paranormal investigation last night, complete with EMF Meters and heat and Kinect cameras and everything, so I figured a ghost hunting fic was in order.  Unfortunately my experience didn't end up NC-17 rated though...

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. 

Erlona’s Heart by MD1016

79,000 words

Book Cover: Erlona's Heart by MD1016

Mulder takes Scully on her dream vacation but things don't quite go to plan.

 

If you haven't figured it out yet, MD1016 is one of my favourite authors, and possibly even the one who got me sucked in to the world of XF fanfic to begin with .  She combines the angst and UST and unleashes the smut in a way that I find most appealing.  This is a vacation fic set during the cancer arc, with all its tenderness, angst, love, and seasickness.

Backtracking by Kel & Scetti

59,000 Words

Book Cover: Backtracking by Kel & Scetti

What do Charlie Scully, the Alien Bounty Hunter, and Jesse “the Body” Ventura all have in common? Last April you could have found all three of them in Minnesota.

The mysterious Charlie Scully gets to come out and play in this one, set around an icy waterfall and steamy hot springs at Temperance Creek State Park in Minnesota.  It's a nice trip to a cabin in the snow... that ends up in hospital.

Tootsie Pop I-III by EvieLouise

Book Cover: Tootsie Pop I-III by EvieLouise

CONTENT WARNING: The following story is contrived, cliche-ridden, unrealistic, and unhygienic. And really, really smutty. ~Sap alert~ as well. Don't venture further unless you dig that kind of thing

Tootsie Pop
After returning from an assignment where Mulder inadvertantly caught sight of Scully in her underwear, a cliched evening of boring paperwork was made more interesting by Mulder seeing even more of Scully.

Tootsie Pop II: Marshmallows & Mints
Summary: Mulder and Scully go on another nice trip to the forest, or thereabouts, share conversation and confections, and engage in other fun adult activities.

Tootsie Pop II: JellyBellies and Twang
SUMMARY: Mulder and Scully travel to Austin, Texas, for a boring conference, but they manage to accomplish a whole busload of fun and naughty stuff CC never lets them do. A fluffy smut biscuit—with gravy.

EvieLouise lets them have a bit of fun.

I also discovered, when editing the table of contents in this fic, that the copy on annex-files.com is missing TPII chapter 5, which is definitely in this  version.

EvieLouise also mentioned some visual elements in her story.  These are in the ePub and PDF versions, but I'll put them here for .txt people.

One Week at Quantico by CrossedBeams

Book Cover: One Week at Quantico by CrossedBeams

What if Mulder had been teaching at the Academy when Scully was training…

Crossedbeams gives us another Pre-XF MSR that's remotely plausible. And hot.  

Lessons Series by Jori & MoJo

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.

After the Future by Donna

270,000 words

Book Cover: After the Future by Donna

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.

Beauty in the Breakdown by Neytirijade

8,800 words

Book Cover: Beauty in the Breakdown by Neytirijade

Mulder tries pushing Scully away to protect her. Scully doesn't give up that easily.

Neytirijade delights us with some MSR smut at the Gunmen's on New Years Eve.  There's a dash of Fowley angst, a pinch of idiotic Mulder, and a splash of self-medicating Scully all whipped up into a delicious coming together. 😉

Gradual Precipitation by Narida Law

19,300 words

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...

Magician Series by Suzanne Bickerstaffe & Jennifer Lyons

618,000 words

Book Cover: Magician Series by Suzanne Bickerstaffe & Jennifer Lyons

An epic medieval/fantasy style x-files series by Suzanne Bickerstaffe and Jennifer Lyons or Matt Weed.

From the authors: This story is a small departure from most X-Files fanfiction. At its heart, it is a fantasy, a slightly deeper trip into the 'realm' of make-believe. Sit back, relax, suspend your disbelief, and let us tell you a tale. Enjoy!

This series includes:

  • Book 1: The Magician
  • Book 2: The Runaway
  • Book 3: The Dark Queen
  • Book 3.5: The Firebrand (by Suzanne Bickerstaffe & Matthew Weed)
  • Book 4: The Warrior Priest

This fic was requested by Kate for the same reason I hadn't put it up here - it was a PITA to collect and reformat. It's been on my to-read list forever.  Because of the length of it there was a lot of head-scratching involved as to whether I should post it in one file or split it up. It's not too bad unless you're still using 28.8k dialup.  I've tried to get the file size down, but there's a link to the website below if all else fails.   

I haven't read this one yet, but it comes highly recommended.  This is the NC-17 version, and after the time it took to collect and format this one you're on your own if you want to find the non-smut version...

or you can visit Suzanne's website, a classic example of 90's Geocities glamour, which Mimic117 rescued from geocities and has kept minty fresh at theportal.mimicsmusings.com

Note: the zip file seems to sometimes come up as not found. I've renamed it to make less room for glitches, and it's definitely there.  If it comes up as a 404 error, give it another go.  thanks.

I used Theresa's beautiful illustration from mindseye.tcjahn.com as the main cover image. The other images are by Tamara Kauffman and GEK.  Unfortunately these are the only sizes I've been able to find.

There's also a map of The Realm I stumbled across:

I'll update the illustrator when I go back and find out who it is...
