Reach + Sokol by Khyber

99,000 Words

Reach+Sokol cover

The Reach-Sokol series includes:

  • reach: Mulder and Scully are called off an X-file to an emergency assignment where they have some time alone together. Their reflections and thoughts about the events of the past year lead them both to make certain decisions…
  • day 17: The slipperier part of the seventeenth day of The Great Adventure. Two words—Tattoo Story. Erotica with character insight
  • day 19: Skinner discovers the agents’ relationship through a mysterious package.
  • eldorado bones: Old times and old friends.
  • sokol: A boy, a girl, a girl, a spaceship, and how things end.
  • day 51: Mulder and Scully have sex in the back of a Datsun 260Z… no, seriously, that’s it.
  • dancing skeleton day: Takes place at Christmas 1998, six months after “Reach” and “Sokol,”
  • terminus post quem: Whatever happened to…? Takes place in summer 2002, four years after “Reach” and “Sokol”.

Khyber takes our agents to some original and unique places. He also gives the partners a fun and adventurous sex life without overdoing it, with a few short smutfics interspersed with the main stories. The angst is also tempered with the kind of off-the-cuff snark that Mulder likes to make, and Scully sometimes adopts, and all the ingredients are there for a very entertaining series.

This one's a little large for a story page, but the other usual options are available.

I don't know who made the original covers, but they were originally posted in Khyber's part of alanna.net, but I hadn't seen them at khyberfic.net (this could just be a wayback machine archive issue.) I also spent an entire day making one myself before I realised there were pre-existing covers, so I'm going to include that one here too. 😀

Puppets Trilogy by M Partous

54,000 Words

Puppets Trilogy cover

Mulder, driven by a need to understand what really happened to his father, decides to head back to the silo (Piper Maru/Apocrypha) to find Alex Krycek, who he's convinced he heard crying out when he and Scully were there.

!CW: consent is freely given, but under circumstances that could be considered duress.

As stated in the author's notes, her wish was to explore the M/S relationship in a way that it "gives them a kind of mystical strength, one that frightens the powers that be, one that could actually help them in their quest for the truth"

Whilst their first time is under less than perfect circumstances, it connects them in a special way that continues through the challenges they face in the rest of the stories. I do have a special love for an early connection between our agents, and this one feels right for them.

Therapist by LiviaB

Therapist cover

Mulder and Scully are on loan to the VCU, on the trail of a couple killer.

!Content Warning: M/S forced

This fic puts our agents into a situation where they are forced to make what they can of an otherwise unbearable situation, and in doing so strengthen their trust.  Livia treats them with love and compassion and has them come out on top as only Mulder and Scully can.

I often anguish over whether to publish an author's name where google can find it. It usually comes down to  how common the name is. I was on the fence with this one as so much fic comes up on google anyway, but I couldn't be sure that it wasn't a unique name, so I chose to be cautious. Whilst I've edited the name displayed on this site, it's still on the image where google can't see it, and in the downloadable documents.

However, I did find this entry in the urban dictionary that I found amusing and thought I'd share.

Colors by Amperage, Livengoo, Monkeyboy & Rodent

Colors cover

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

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

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

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

Terminal Moves cover

Mulder and Scully attempt to help Interpol with a case when a few minor legalities get in their way.

Mulder and Scully and time to kill in airports...

Some Hump Day PWP.

I've become rather obsessive compulsive in having covers fit the 3:4 aspect ratio, so I've taken liberties with quite a few of the original graphics, including this one.

Seisdeadh cover

Scully's getting stalked, and when she disappears, Mulder finds their relationship under suspicion, whilst he searches for her. Meanwhile, she's not inclined to just sit back and wait to be rescued.

This is a fic I came across whilst I was searching for another story, and I'm very glad I did.  I usually avoid established relationship fics because I like a bit of excitement, IYKWIM, but there's no lack of that with this pair, despite them being together almost 2 years at the time this is set.

There's the angst of Mulder and Scully both being in danger, then more angst when nobody would believe Scully had been kidnapped, thanks to some bruising left by Mulder. 😉 After Mulder is sidelined by the bureau, our agents have to each rely on their wits to get back to each other.  A++++

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.

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. 🙂

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.  😀

Human Credentials by Scarlet Baldy

Book Cover: Human Credentials by Scarlet Baldy

As both agents decide to forget what almost happened in that hallway, Scully tries to deal with a clinical depression which was just waiting to happen. The fact that Mulder resumed his relationship with Fowley is not helping. A mysterious letter sends him on another wild goose chase in a country far far away. Scully and Fowley ‘try’ to temper their mutual animosity to find him. The agents will find out that travelling can be a mind altering experience, in the true sense of the word.

This story begins right after the movie and gradually evolves into its own alternate universe. A.D Kersh never existed, the Consortium didn’t turn to ashes, and Fowley never worked - or slept - with CSM.

Book II - Lendemains
This is the morning after Human Credentials' last book ended. Mulder, Scully and her clone Faye are on the run. The world is being ravaged by a mysterious and lethal virus. And the bees are back.  NOTE: THIS STORY IS INCOMPLETE BUT INCLUDED HERE FOR THE CURIOUS.  There are only 5 chapters so it barely begins, unfortunately. You might be able to consider it an epilogue. 🙂 

I only have one cover for this one, but I have the thumbnails for the rest.  The HC1 front and back cover are by Pinky and the HC2 front and back cover are by Invisigoth.

Full Circle to the Truth by Des

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.

Book Cover: Breeding Discontent by FatCat

Mulder and Scully are abducted and when they are returned, things have changed.

After being missing for two months, when they were found, conclusions were leapt to and evidence tampered with.  Just another day on the X-Files....    On top of that, some ardent loving is walked in on, and there's some video evidence gleefully provided by some voyeuristic members of the consortium.  It's only glancingly mytharc.

Content warning: there is dubcon involved in this (they were drugged but otherwise willing).

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.

Risking Everything by Cathleen Faye

Book Cover: Risking Everything by Cathleen Faye

During the events of Pine Bluff Variant, we find that Mulder has risked his relationship with Scully for his assignment and as things begin to go bad he fears that he's fast running out of time to set it right again. But Scully has more faith in him than he realizes. This is an expansion on the events of Pine Bluff Variant, an XF episode with more layers (IMO) than it's given credit for. The title is taken from Mulder's line in the episode.

PBV is a favourite episode, and the Scully doctoring scene absolutely went this way, you just didn't see it all on screen 😉 .

The original image is from Cathleen's website, I only had this little version though, so I've expanded it a little for the cover 🙂 

Legend of Hope by Ms31x129

Book Cover: Legend of Hope by Ms31x129

An ancient legend could be the key in saving humanity.

This is a post-col story with a rather intriguing beginning, which didn't take long to suck me in despite my usual post-col reluctance.  All your favourite characters get a part in this story.  I'll just warn you though, you might need to drink some strong coffee before you read it to keep up with the changing points of view.

 

This story was first posted in June 1999, 20 years ago now. I'm sure Ms31x129 doesn't need that reminder of how much time has passed, especially since she was kind enough to make me a new dustjacket.  The old dustjacket, which I only had a thumbnail for, is included below for nostalgic purposes.  Unfortunately many of the dustjackets I have from the old days are of a similar quality to this and just aren't usable 🙁 

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

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.

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!  😀

Keep a fire extinguisher close to your device.  This could possibly be the hottest fic I've ever had the privilege of reading.  Mulder and Scully try desperately to keep in character as Paul & Holly to pull off a convincing enough performance to be invited back to the next party, never quite knowing how much is an act and how much is real... the tension between them is sky high.

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.
