Emotional Risk by Exley_61

16,000 Words

Emotional Risk cover

Mulder & Scully are weathering the storm of loves emotional risks, will they survive the deluge?

Mulder notices that Scully has disconnected from their relationship and encourages her to face what's wrong. Whilst my preference is for first time fics, Exley does magical things in the raising of the angst levels of this one to maintain the intensity.

I decided to go a little full-smut with this dustjacket, sorry. I've attempted to make it artistic though 😀 I admit to going full-smut often, I usually just don't post those images or hide them behind more acceptable things...

Swirling Water by Paradise

Swirling Water cover

Scully takes a vacation half way across the country, Mulder finds her, and does what we've all been waiting for.

Pissy Scully takes time away from Mulder. Mulder can't handle it. Smut ensues.

I'm struggling a little to get back into posting after spending weeks wrangling software and attempted hackers. I still have some more stuff here to tidy up since the last wordpress update broke a few things, but I seriously need that vacation I was planning now. I wonder whether Mulder would follow me across the country if I just take off...

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.

Delta S by Nicole Mason

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.

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.

This is definitely a better trip to the forest than they had in Detour. 🙂

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.

Bed & Breakfast Series by DavidS, Tess, Jacquie Lava & ga

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. 🙂

Magic Shell Stories by the Sister Spooky Gang

34,000 Words

Magic Shell cover

Magic Shell: Brick Wall by Jacquie LaVa - wherein it is discovered just how much Mulder likes giving Scully history lessons...

Magic Shell: Motel Room by Tess - Scully takes control

Magic Shell: The Woman Who Knows Everything by Xenith - Scully feels bad about hurting Mulder in the throes of passion and decides to make it up to him.

Magic Shell: At the Races by Foxsong - M & S are investigating a missing racehorse, and the tackroom seems to be full of interesting clues.

Magic Shell 5: Caroling by Wylfcynne - FTF Missing scene - the summary would be longer than the story

Magic Shell 6: At the Movies by Ravenwald - M&S watch one of the movies that aren't Mulder's.

Magic Shell: Breakfast by RoseMN - Mulder brings Scully breakfast.

Magic Shell: Rest Stop by Sue Ann - A difficult drive.

Magic Shell 11: Oral Hygiene by Ravenwald - Mulder accidentally cc'd an email.

Magic Shell 15: By Touch by Wylfcynne - Smut, luridfic, whatever you want to call it. Playing with toys.

NOTE: These last 3 stories in the anthology are Mulder/Scully/Krycek threesomes

Magic Shell: Snack by Evielouise - An M/S/K continuation of the first story - "Brick Wall"

Magic Shell 10: Ice Cream Sandwich by Wylfecynne - an M/S/K sequel to Snack

Magic Shell 14: Alien Technology by Ravenwald - an M/S/K sequel to Ice Cream Sandwich.

The Magic Shell series is so bad it's good. It's shameless PWP, most of it written as a distraction by Sister Spooky list members whilst awaiting season 8.

I've tried to group stories together where they're connected, but I may have lost track somewhere in there.  I did however move the three M/S/K stories to the end to save MSR purists from having to close their eyes and scroll through them.  (There are links in the ePub & PDF versions.) There's more of an explanation at the beginning of the file.

Personally, I don't mind the very infrequent M/S/K fic as a total escape from reality, and I can understand why Krycek would want to join in. 😀

I hope you enjoy this PWP distraction.  I figured there was enough angst in the world right now and hope this helps.  Regular programming will resume shortly.

Cotton candy for the mind. No violence, no guns drawn (and quickly lost) - just all the things I'd want to do if it were ME in that car.

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. 😉

Au Naturel cover

Au Naturel: Mulder and Scully spend the day together. In a state forest.

Aux Etoiles: Just what is it that makes a moment magic?  This story takes place in the Au Naturel Universe, but they work as stand-alones.

This is the nice trip to the forest we've all been waiting for.

I'm currently ploughing through some depression/anxiety issues. I'm trying to keep the posts up but also attempting to take some pressure off by not feeling as though I have to post, if that makes sense. I'm hoping it will be business as usual but please bear with me if I don't get 3 weekly releases for the next couple of weeks.  It's nothing i haven't dealt with before, it's just a matter of harnessing limited energy and brainpower to use where it's needed. 🙂

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.

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

  5. A housewarming party
  6. Wet and wild sex… some sugar… playing dress up… some more sex…
  7. Mulder and Scully enjoy a quiet evening in the park =)
  8. A climactic finish.

 

I'm pleased to say that I have all the webpages finished of the Orange Tabby Cat Recommends archive. There's just the chasing up of 250 missing story files left to do. I'm cheating a little by linking things that I've already uploaded here, so today's fic is one that I need for the OTC recs site.

All i can remember about this one is one certain scene, and that it's high in smut content. I'll have to have a skim through before I tag it properly. 🙂

... having now re-read it I'm surprised I only remembered one scene.  Hoo-boy!

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. 😉

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....

1,000 Rainy Days by RL Montoya

43,000 Words

Book Cover: 1,000 Rainy Days by RL Montoya

When Scully begins experiencing a strange form of
empathy, it affects her work on an abduction case. Mulder reacts
oddly, becoming more and more attracted to her because of it, but
the consequences of and reasons for her new ability are more far-
reaching than either of them realize.

Although the author rated this R, it's probably at least borderline NC-17.

RL took three years to pen this X-File with MSR, set in Season 3-4.  While the agents know what they want, the uncertainty about changing their relationship keeps the UST churning for a while.  After some ups and downs they do work it all out. Oops. Spoiler alert. 😉

Thanks to the person who whispered in my ear that I'd forgotten to upload the files... I've done that a few times lately but usually caught myself... hopefully this will make me remember!

Book Cover: Full Circle to the Truth by Des

Special Agent Diana Fowley. Special Agent Dana Scully. What do they mean to Fox Mulder? Does he know? If not, how far do you have to go to find the truth? I thought it was time to find out.

This was a last minute substitution so again tags have been added from my appalling doddery old woman's memory. 

This is more Fowley-induced angst. I can't remember much of the specifics, but I do remember the smut. 😉   I'm pretty sure Kersh's office is involved at some point.

Apologies to these awesome authors that it's the smut that stays with me rather than the plot they put all that time and effort into; it's not you it's me. I'm going to post some non-smut soon just to prove that I do remember some stories for their storylines.

Miraculous: Signs of Life: A frantic ride into the night leads Scully to witness the greatest miracle of her life...

I haven't had a chance to re-read this one, and I lost some of the tags, so I hope the tags I guessed are correct.  I really only remember the scene in the hot spring. 😉

Caught in the Act series by Parrotfish

Book Cover: Caught in the Act series by Parrotfish

I: A secret is revealed, threatening to permanently dissolve the partnership between Scully and Mulder.

II: No Win Situation: Their affair revealed, Mulder and Scully have been given new partners. His is bad, and hers is worse. Together, they must suffer through the power games of their professional lives while learning a very different lesson about power in their private lives.

III: Sub Rosa: Mulder and Scully go undercover to rescue a kidnapped child from a white supremacist militia group. Success could mean the salvation of the duo’s partnership — if it doesn’t destroy them first.

Note - the third story in this series is far heavier than the others and concerns an undercover situation that Mulder and Scully find abhorrent, causing much angst. Viewer discretion (and expectation adjustment) is advised.  Please read the author's notes for more information.

Some character exploration/erotica with angst, glorious angst.  Particularly in the last story.  

You know you're dealing with very old text files when you have to mess with the editing of line breaks to force paragraphs to show.  Normally unnecessary carriage returns are removed when it converts to epub (and then pdf) but when it's been written on a particularly old computer all carriage returns are removed and you just get a huge block of text.  It's not pretty, and hopefully I've noticed others before posting.  Occasionally I know there's the odd orphan end of a sentence, but that really can't be helped because manually proofreading is above my paygrade! 😀

Mulder & Scully.  Shipwrecked.

This story was written in 1996 by one of the early giants in the MSR fanfic world.  It's set around the end of season 3, so the UST factor causes issues as Mulder tries to show restraint living in close quarters with a very casually dressed Scully.

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.

Five Years and One Night by Shalimar

83,000 Words

Book Cover: Five Years and One Night by Shalimar

This story was originally a short post-Kitsunegari vignette. Then by request, Shalimar kept adding parts until it became this masterpiece.  One of the (multitude of) big plot holes of The X-Files that was never addressed by the 1013 writers was the fetus, created from Scully's egg, that Mulder discovered during the episode "Emily." Nor was the emotional fallout of that episode, and its startling revelations, on their partnership ever dealt with during the series.  "Five Years and One Night" addresses both of those issues, through the creation of an alternative universe that begins in the aftermath of "Kitsunegari", then takes off into its own complicated plot-line six months later, when Mulder arrives to disrupt the carefully reordered life that Scully has created for herself across the continent, away from him and the X-Files. An emotional tale, set in the exotic surroundings of Singapore.

I decided that I just had to post this story, but I'm happy to remove it on request.  I'm counting on the fact that it's 21 years old now and if Shalimar ever even thinks of the story any more, she'd be happy to know that it's still being enjoyed.  This is super-angsty Emily fallout fic, with loads of action including some wild and frenzied adult action. It's definitely a classic.

Shipper’s Digest 619: UnNatural Attraction

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.

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.

Shipper’s Digest 02: Two Agents, One Tent

  1. An innocent question at a crime scene leads Mulder into a contemplative night.
  2. “Hmm…chocolate and moonshine. There’s got to be a song in there somewhere.”

I imagine that doing the naked pretzel in the rain and the mud would be quite uncomfortable, but I love that Mulder and Scully just can't resist that urge.  There might be a case file in here somewhere, I can't quite remember the non-smut content that well. 😀 

The main dustjacket is a combination of the original Reflections of a Rainy Night cover by Tracy DC below, and the Morning's Promise mud scene cover I made which is in the ePub & PDF version.

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.

This is my first attempt at an anthology of themed stories by different authors.  There are eight "Tight Quarters" fics included, with each story having between 1500 and 5500 words.  Let me know if you'd like more themed anthologies and if so feel free to make suggestions.

Gourmet Groping I & II by The Pimpernel

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.

 

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.

Eden Series by Jacquie LaVa

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.

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.

Hide and Seek by SpearmntXP

147,000 words

Book Cover: Hide and Seek by SpearmntXP

Scully's inexplicable and sudden departure forces Mulder to make a decision.

This one's a Scully-centric mytharc x-file with a touch of foreign intrigue. There's some separation anxiety but it leads to a satisfying reunion.

This is the cover by Michaela from the annex-files included with the PDF 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. 🙂 

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. 😉

Heartland I & II by Eiluned

8,000 words

Book Cover: Heartland I & II by Eiluned
  1. Delta: Things get hot in New Orleans.
  2. Deserts Dry: A cool night in a desert motel. Sequel to Delta.

Some very steamy smut in a New Orleans Cemetery, and later in the desert.  Mulder and Scully get to have all sorts of fun that their evil overlord never lets them have.

Shut Up, Mulder & Bitch by David S

14,800 words

Book Cover: 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.

!very mildly (if at all) dubcon, dom!Scully. 

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.

Book Cover: Calendar Girl Series by Jori

Calendar Girl I follows Mulder and Scully through season six and seven.

  • BLUE LIGHT SPECIAL- Mulder's real Christmas present comes shortly after Scully hands him that little wrapped package after 'How The Ghosts Stole Christmas.' They spend their first night together under shimmering blue Christmas lights before meeting one of the Scully brothers. NC-17
  • CHIMES- A continuation of my "Blue Light Special" story, this one takes place over New Year's Eve and day, with Bill Scully dropping by for a guest appearance. NC-17
  • GREENHOUSE EFFECT - Mulder and Scully break free from doing background checks to go 'investigate' an exotic flower grower in Florida. Smut follows. This story line would take place after Tithonius, but before Two Fathers. And there is no such person as Diana Fowley. NC-17

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.

Carpe Felis Mortuus & Perforance Art? by Heathers and NicoleVanDam

21,700 words

Book Cover: Carpe Felis Mortuus & Perforance Art? by Heathers and NicoleVanDam

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!  😀 

Playing Goddess by Shalimar

Book Cover: Playing Goddess by Shalimar

Mulder and Scully go camping.

S'mores, skinnydipping & smut.

I really wanted to share "Five Years and One Night" by Shalimar but as I was preparing it I noticed it had a Do Not Archive request.  I still don't know whether I should post those ones; I kind of figure that it's 20+ years later and the care factor is probably no longer there, but I want to comply with the authors' wishes.  Let me know what you think so I can blame you all 😉 Or if you know how to contact Shalimar can you please beg her for me?  Thanks.

Book Cover: Rarity of the Human Connection by MD1016

Scully in jeopardy, Mulder in mourning, and their connection.

This is a fic that stuck with me for a long time.  It's angsty; full of Scully torture - and Mulder torture by proxy, and it has a devious little twist at the end...

Update: I just found some cover art made by X-Rae from X-Plicit Disclosures, including one for this story.

Drugged by Peacenik0

22,400 words

Book Cover: Drugged by Peacenik0

Prompt: Mulder and Scully are accidentally drugged and can't help themselves. Exhibitionism, marathon sex, multiple orgasms for both of them.

I was a little hesitant to read this one initially due to the dubcon nature of it, but it's clear that these guys want each other, they just usually have better self-control. To give you an indication of what's involved, the tags given by peacenik0 include: Car Sex, Exhibitionism, Light Dom/sub, Marathon Sex, Oral Sex, Outdoor Sex, Pool Sex, Rough Sex, Sex on a Car, Shower Sex.

This fic not only has marathon sex, it has a bit of marathon cover art. I ended up doing a cover illustration for Peacenik0 for each chapter as well as the main cover:

I have a feeling I may need to reuse parts of these images in other cover art, as the pool one in particular turned out too well to be hidden away. 🙂

Lost Time by Spider

59,000 Words

Book Cover: Lost Time by Spider
Part of the Human Affairs series:

Diana continues to interfere after One Son. Our agents couldn't be any more distant when they're sent out of the country on a case.

Author's Notes: For almost 20 years I have lived in a country with a 5,000 year old culture, spending months in villages that count years since the last white person was seen. I was once an academic and thus am still more skeptic that believer. But I have also seen things... On my last trip to Ambrym volcano, I was stuck in a leaky hut with dead bodies from black magic littering the area. . My helicopter pilot companion thought I was screwy reading Xfiles when we lived the damned things. So a bottle of tequila and an annoyance about the M&S relationship post One Son in hand, I sat down with many battery changes, incorporated real life to fiction and ended up with this.

 

This is one of my favourite fics. I can't get enough Fowley-induced-angst, and she's at her evil worst in this one.  It does reference Human Affairs, a previous story by Spider, but  it's not necessary to read that story before this one. You might notice that I've tagged both stories as UST to RST, but there's a reason for that so just go with it. 🙂

Spider is clearly a gifted writer. She's actually an international bestselling author in her own right. The book referenced under the Lost Time image below is a science-fictional look at the results of climate change and the subsequent breakdown of society that's already quite frightening in 2020. The author has released it as a free download if you'd like to Ecosia it (alternative to Google with more trees and fewer data collectors).

18+ months later - I just found some original artwork for Spider's stories. I assume that this was created by Spider as it didn't state otherwise. I've also mocked up an image to direct you to the author's other work without search engines being able to associate that  work with this fanfic (I hope).

 

Tantric by Jacquie LaVa & TBishop

66,700 words

Book Cover: Tantric by Jacquie LaVa & TBishop

"Honest to God, I meant to ease her into it; I never meant to blurt it out like that. You’d think, after seven years and countless bizarre cases, I would have learned my lesson. But I was so excited; so anxious to get my teeth into this one, I forgot to be diplomatic – forgot to use my head instead of my heart. I had spent the weekend going through all the files and the plethora of information I’d found, on the Web and in B. Dalton’s; I’d taken notes, collected documented testimonials from folks who had decided to talk about what they knew of this particular organization… by the time Scully hit the basement on Monday, I was so wired that she never had a chance.

Posing as my little wifey, and involving herself in what could be considered 'deviant sexual cultish situations…'”

This one has some delicious "keeping it real while undercover" smut in it.  I had a little trouble imagining Scully losing control to the extent she does, but I'm willing to forgive these writers this once; they're two of my all-time favourites. And like I say, OOC is perfectly acceptable when there's intense sex involved...  which is why I hate it when CC takes them out of character.

Please be aware that there are many disturbing elements in this fic, and Scully bears the brunt of a lot of the coercive behaviour, so proceed with caution.
