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. 😀

Hem Ben Ik by LiviaB

25,000 Words

Hem Ben Ik cover

When no one is who they seem to be, whom do you trust?

Hot Damn is right. I don't remember coming across this fic before; I only went searching for it after I found a dustjacket for it and was intrigued. I'm glad I found it. I had no idea where it was coming from or heading to, and it totally really blew me sideways. Plus the flashback was one of the hottest "all things" fics I've ever read.

I'm disappointed that I found no more of this would-be series, but even the note at the end that there was more planned was enough to allow me to smile, knowing it wasn't supposed to be the end of the story.

The dustjacket is from Livia's website so I'm assuming it's her art. Sorry if I butchered it a little in my compulsion to force all the cover art into a 3:4 ratio...

Scene of the Crime by Donnilee

6,500 Words

Scene of the Crime cover

Mulder reacts to a Scully outfit and starts an emotional avalanche.

 

I'm a sucker for the decoy!Scully trope, and this fic is an all-time favourite. Mulder's tongue can't help itself when faced with Scully's under-dressed cleavage, and to be totally honest, even as a straight woman  I can appreciate the temptation that naked Scullyboobs would present.  Slight dubcon (but not unwanted) Mulder!tongue action.

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...

Sex, Lies & Videotape by Amy McClure

3,000 Words

Sex Lies & Videotape cover

One word sums it all up: smut.

Amy sums it up nicely. There's a bit of friendly discussion over who won or lost a bet before the wager is collected.

Rumor & Bartering Contentment by Beduini

11,000 Words

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.

Absolute Beginners by Diehard

43,000 Words

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.

DK’s Secret & Scully and the Gap Man by AliciaK

19,000 Words

Smartass Smut cover

Mulder takes Scully out on a long overdue date, and discovers what little secret she has hiding underneath her staid suits.

Smart-ass smut and general silliness.

Some first date fic, then Scully family gathering fic by AliciaK. Double the hump day fun.

Game (The) by Diana Battis

4,900 Words

The Game cover

Learning to play can be dangerous.

Another delightful fic from Diana Battis for hump day.

Yee Haw & Much More by Satina

61,000 Words

Yee Hawj & more cover

Yee-haw : Rated NC-17, MSR RST, H : Mulder and Scully go undercover (or is that under covers?) as a married couple working on a ranch. When Mulder is injured in a sensitive place, who will provide the TLC he needs?

Two of a Kind : Rated NC-17, MSR RST, dub-con elements : Post-ep to "Three of a Kind" in which the Lone Gunmen find Scully under the influence of the injected drug and instead of just knocking her out, they call Mulder.

If I Were Her... : Rated NC-17, M/S : Musings of a fellow female agent.
If I Were Him... : Rated NC-17, M/S : Musings of a fellow male agent.

Drawing a Bath : Rated NC-17, MSR, UST, 'bation : Scully draws a bath while talking with Mulder on the phone.

OutFoxed : Rated NC-17, Sc/O, MSR RST : Scully has a boyfriend. Mulder doesn't like him. All is not what it seems.

Rose Petal : Rated PG , MSR : Post-ep to "Never Again" in which Mulder's thoughts during Scully's absence are examined. Sorry, no smut here, just an angst-fest.

Not Everything Is About You : Rated NC-17, MSR, BDSM : Another "Never Again" post-ep. "You know, this is unacceptable. If he's going to treat me like his slave, he's gonna learn to do it right."

This last story includes Krycek non-con with Scully so I've put it at the end should you wish to skip it.

Dark Secrets : Rated NC-17, Sc/K non-con, MSR RST : Post-ep to "Paper Clip" in which instead of Krycek and Cardinal shooting Scully's sister at her apartment, Krycek goes to Scully's apartment, ties her up and makes her call Mulder, who has to watch while he does nasty things to her.

This anthology doesn't include Not an Exercise in Subtlety or Risky Business, which are already available at x-libris.


Before Satina went over to the slash side, and occasionally afterwards, she wrote some extremely satisfying MSR erotica. She had a gift for capturing the intense desire our agents had for one another. These are those stories (plus one PG fic and minus the ones above that I've already posted here.)

If you're interested in reading Satina's Mulder/Krycek fics, they can be found at HegalPlace.com on wayback.

Kacaso made covers for many of these fics, but sadly few of the M/S ones remain.

Risky Business by ShannonK & Satina

11,500 Words

Risky Business cover

While at a boring pathology convention out of town, Scully receives a friendly hello from her partner. Things get friendlier...and friendlier.

PWP as promised. 🙂

Our agents definitely missed each other while Scully was out of town.

Mid-Winter Thaw by Lydia Bower

6,000 Words

Midwinter thaw cover

How far will Scully go to save Mulder from the mind of a madman? Occurs anytime after the fifth season episode Detour.

Lydia brings the profiling angst and smut together in a way that will make you melt.

Dimestore Hooker by Jori

3,000 Words

Dimestore Hooker cover

Imagine that Phillip Padgett is still alive somewhere and typing out a life for Scully and her love, Mulder. Hence, Mulder might be able to see colors -- vivid, hot colors. And Scully might be a little feral. Phil does not make an appearance in this piece, though.

If you like a Scully who knows what she wants and goes get it, you should enjoy this feral Scully who's been taken for granted once too often...

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.

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...

Just Desserts by Forte

4,000 Words

Just Desserts cover

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

Some midweek mind candy from Forte.

I've included a link to Forte's website - because it still exists (last updated Jan 2020) - so go explore!  😀

Exploring Desires by K Benton

100,000 Words

Exploring Desires cover

When Mulder and Scully work with a new agent, his entry into their lives causes months of intense angst for everyone involved.

Content Warning: non-consensual sexual situations, deviant sexual situations, physical control, coercive control, violence. Some scenes are marked, including a court scene which may be especially distressing for rape survivors.

This starts with Scully dating another agent before discovering it's Mulder she really wants. From there things get dark.  Unless you're particularly sensitive, you shouldn't let the content warning put you off - just be prepared to hurt a little.

Dance Card Series by Sabine

22,500 Words

Dance card cover

A series of stories about how Scully's past has shaped the woman
she is now. There is no such thing as the road not taken.

Dance Card: 
"I'm grounded and rusty; my dance card is dusty now.
Because I wanted to be what the angels see when they
look down: just a couple on the avenue with their
feet on the ground."

What Happened After That:
There is only one way to recover from a night in New York.

Moonshine:
And there are always consequences, though it takes a little
moonshine to loosen lips.

Sabine has a wonderful narrative style. She takes us back to Scully's college days and the one that never was...

I hate it when my covers just don't want to turn out the way I want them to. I've made an adjustment to the text after the initial upload and this version looks cleaner, but just know that the fic is better than the cover!!!!

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.

 

Enough I & II by Nicole

5,500 Words

Enough cover

Enough I: Crucify Me:  Post Gethsemane. Our agents are angry. Prepare yourself for a gritty!Scully and pissed!Mulder.

Enough I: Crucify Me (Epilogue): Mulder and Scully make-up. Kinda.

Enough II: Come Play My Game: Ummmm....Sex? Mind Candy? Mulder and Scully at a Ft. Lauderdale Club.

Some hump day PWP.  I love it when they have to fuck out their differences 🙂

I actually have a huge number of short fics with classic covers that I'd like to post. I was thinking of a month-long short fic special, but maybe "Hump Day Humping" could be a thing...

Diamonds and Rust & An Everlasting Kiss by Mustang Sally

13,000 Words

Diamonds & Rust cover

Diamonds and Rust:  Mutilated cattle in the midwest. A plateful of anger with lust on the side.

An Everlasting Kiss: Mulder and Scully investigate a missing child in the seedy glitz and glamour of Atlantic City. They confront Mafiosi, big hair, and flocked wallpaper in Vegas by the Sea. Oh yeah, there's some sex too.

Mulder's annoyed. Scully's annoyed. Mulder's annoyed that Scully's annoyed. Smut ensues.

It's one of my favourite things ever - angry smut!!!!

Dust Series by Blue Samutra

17,000 Words

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. 🙂

Pandora’s Box by Rachel Anton

8,900 Words

Pandora's Box cover

Scully’s curiosity gets the better of her.

Author’s notes: This thing is the result of one too many conversations about Bad Blood. It takes place after Scully’s second autopsy and drifts off into a universe all it’s own...

A bonus fic because I'd meant to post it on 22 February - 23 years since Bad Blood first aired in the USA, although I could have saved it until 18 May when it first aired in Australia I suppose.

It's a favourite episode, but one that's distinctly underrepresented in smutfics.

Bad Blood Challenge!!!!

There’s so much opportunity in this ep for some added smut that I’d like to issue a challenge to our wonderful fanfic community to smutify the episode in as many different ways as possible.  Here are some suggestions:

  • Mulder’s slide show… in the dark… having to prove once and for all who’s right. I don’t know about Scully, but Mulder’s slide shows turn me on.
  • They were drugged!!!! run with it.
  • Scully straightening up Mulder’s clothes while they wait for Skinner. What was that all about??? Did they get it on on the couch in Skinner’s waiting area, or did they arrive like that?
  • Sliding around on his belly behind an RV must have necessitated some Scully-doctoring to make sure something important wasn’t injured. She’d have to have been more concerned than he indicated.  At the very least, running her fingers through some hair is guaranteed to have happened.
  • Magic fingers. That’s got  to lead your mind somewhere dirty.
  • Scully puts the cowboy boots Mulder told her to pack to good use and rides him wearing nothing but...
  • Mulder’s theme from shaft - There are lyrics like private dick and sex machine to play with, if not at the time, maybe later Scully could tease him about it when he comes to…
  • Jealous Mulder confronts Scully in the morgue, perhaps?
  • Getting stuck together in the coffin in the vampire's RV.
  • Do they even know remember what happened before they woke up that last morning in Texas?
  • Channel Gillian’s inner troll since it’s her favourite episode, and get Mulder and Scully to get it on in some other outlandish way.

I hereby challenge all authors to write me some Bad Blood smut to put in a Shipper's Digest anthology 😀 Send any and all fics or links to fics you'd like to submit to xlibris at xf-redux dot com by 30 April 2021. Please xxx

Weekend in Paris, A by Dani Payson

10,000 Words

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.

Three Months I & II by Rachel Anton

14,000 Words

Three Months cover

Three Months:  A story about self-doubt and desperation.

Three Months II - Reverence and Reconstruction: Mulder faces the consequences of his actions and they are not what he expects

This is a Mulder/Other encounter, not a relationship. Please check the content warning in the first story header.

I have this habit of posting angst when there should be celebrations, so I'm not even going to mark this one as a Scully Birthday fic - it's incidental to the story really.

It's angst with a happy ending though, which is the best kind of angst.

Arcadiafics: Dividends, Seven Year Itch & CC&Rs by Suzanne Schramm

19,000 Words

Arcadia Fics cover

Dividends: A late night conversation as Scully takes stock on the last six years.

Seven Year Itch: Sequel to "Dividends." Another late night conversation as Mulder and Scully sort through their feelings.

Covenants, Contracts & Restrictions: Missing scene from Arcadia. Night 1: they spoon like baby kittens (shyeah!). Night 2: Scully tosses Mulder out of the bedroom. Night 3: Anyone’s guess. All I know is Mulder was looking pretty chipper the next morning. And Scully was acting downright wifely when she asked him to give up playing in the mud on Night 4.

How's this for a special edition? Double the Arcadia smut!!!

I was making a cover for the Dividends universe when I remembered I had to make another for CC&Rs and didn't know how far my creativity would extend... this is the result.

Dividends is set earlier in Season 6, but its follow-up, Seven Year Itch is set during Arcadia.

Covenants, Contracts & Restrictions is a completely separate story, giving you double the happy ending. 🙂

O is for Obfuscating & Osculation by Donnilee

31,000 Words

O is for Obfuscating: Scully gets miffed over an anonymous Valentine gift and accidentally hurts her partner. Can she make it all better?

Osculation: Sequel to "O is for Obfuscating". Sex toys? Did somebody say
sex toys? Mulder initiates Scully into the wonderful world of toys.

Here's the Valentine's Day Smut you've all been waiting for. 🙂

Osculation cover
Donnilee's cover for Osculation

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.

Necessary Roughness by agoodwoman

40,000 Words

Necessary Roughness cover

Mulder and Scully investigate some deaths during the Season 4 cancer arc, post Elegy and pre-Demons.

This is one of my favourite authors and stories. It hits the ground running, and keeps up the pace through the whole marathon.

Just as a sidenote, if you're undergoing chemotherapy, please seek your doctor's advice regarding the use of condoms before you and your partner do the wild thing in the morgue.  😉

Seisdeadh by IndigoMuse

79,000 Words

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.

 

Backseat Ethics by Flynn

5,800 Words

Backseat Ethics cover

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.

A second weekend PWP distraction from reality fic.  Flynn manages to give us intense UST in an existing relationship. Now that's talent.

Desideratum by Rachel Anton & Larua Blaurosen

108,000 Words

Desideratum cover

How far is too far to go in the name of love?

Desideratum I: Lost   Desideratum II: Found   Desideratum II: After

Some more Scully Torture. This one can get rough at times, and there are a couple of awkward Mulder moments, but I think it's worth it for the climax 😉  Desideratum III felt a little OOC for my liking, but it's pretty much just smut so it doesn't matter too much.

Mulder bails Scully out of an embarrassing situation by posing as her date for New Year’s Eve.

Mulder helped Scully save face. Then they sucked face. Now they have to deal with the morning after. Sequel to “N is for New Year’s Eve.”

Happy New Year!!!  Wishing you all much health and happiness for the coming year.

There are a couple of extra covers for this one.  The first is Donnilee's cover for New Year's Resolution, and the second is Kimpa's N is for NYE cover.

Resolutions by JessM

13,000 Words

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 🙂

After Eight by DashaK and Plausible Deniability

8,500 Words

After Eight cover

Is it the magic of the Eight Ball, the Christmas spirit, or something that’s been a long time in coming?

Nothing but Christmas cheer, schmoop and smut here. We don't know
nothin' bout no angst.

Fortunately Mulder and Scully's office parties happened before social distancing ruined all the fun, although  I never had this much fun at any of mine.  Put on some Duran Duran and enjoy.

Maggie’s Christmas Wish by Andrea

Maggie's Xmas Wish cover

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

33,000 Words

Halloween digest cover

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

  1. Scully in Black Leather by HavelockXF
  2. Aloha Puddytat by DFantum
  3. I'd Know You Anywhere by Yonada
  4. The Grim Reaper by Amy McClure
  5. The Treat of an Unexpected Trick by Sister X
  6. Mind Candy by B Dipherowa
  7. Urban Legends by SueBee
  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.

Truth and Consequences by Raine & Marsha Taylor

55,000 Words

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. Scully meets up with Mulder after his apparent suicide and after discovering some clones, they have to effectively go undercover to find out what Dr Scanlon is up to.  The Lone Gunmen also help out with some trouble-making clones.

Leap, The & Landfall by Ambress

Leap & Landfall Covers

Scully gets something she’s not sure that she wants. (Scully has had a one time opportunity for motherhood, given to her by the Kurt Crawfords.)

This one blew me away. And I don't think it was just because I thought anticipated that it would be a bit more clinical or awkward. Mulder and Scully give it their all. 😉

Anniversary & Birthday by JessM

17,000 Words

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?)

Will Mulder ever get his cake? And if he does, what will he do with it?

Mulder's birthday is coming up so I figured it was time to start getting in the mood....

Ordinary series cover

One Ordinary Day: One ordinary day, with fortune cookies.

Out of the Ordinary: Mulder and Scully continue to explore the relationship started in One Ordinary Day.

Ordinary People: Sometimes love isn’t enough to sustain a relationship.

No case in sight in this one. I realised I've been uploading lots of case stories lately. 🙂

You He Did Not Fail by Extraordinarily_ordinary

85,000 Words

You He Did Not Fail cover

Five months after recovering from cancer, Scully abruptly left Washington — and Mulder — for a position at the LA field office. Mulder never understood why. Two years later, he'll have his chance to find out.

This is a fabulous brand new fic by a first time author. It combines a case file with some intense relationship angst and some likeable (and loathable) original characters.

There is some artwork at the end of the fic on AO3 but I won't post it here because it might be a bit spoilery. 🙂

Third Wish, The by Tim Scott

20,000 Words

Third Wish by Tim Scot

Just a smut biscuit -- no more, no less.  I hope. Scully has a vivid recurring dream in which a genie grants her 3 wishes...

I've just returned from a road trip to the outback. There's nothing quite like playing smut read via Text-t0-Speech over your car stereo to keep you alert and make sure you don't do anything stupid  that will require you to submit dashcam footage. 😉

Cold Case by Jacquie LaVa

Cold Case by Jacquie LaVa

When a "cold case" over twenty years old resurfaces with new victims, Mulder and Scully are called in to head up the investigative team.

Au Naturel & Aux Etoiles by abracadabra

20,000 Words

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. 🙂

That Night Series by EBE

35,000 Words

That night series cover
  • Part I: Sex
  • Part II: More sex
  • Part III: They decide to open up emotionally
  • Part IV: Even more sex
  • Part V: Mulder ditches, Scully threatens to split
  • Part VI: Mulder ditches, Scully splits
  • Part VII: Reconciliation

Those summaries don't do this fic justice. This began as a bit of a first-time smut vignette but it then runs the gamut of emotions as it explores the establishment of their relationship with its ups and downs. It's one of those favourite fics that I forgot was a favourite until I re-read it.  

It's weird how when re-reading fics I've found that some memorable ones haven't had the same impact on a second read, and others I couldn't quite remember have me pleasantly surprised.  That could be a lot to do with expectations, so I try not to let that affect what I post here.  🙂

Book of Acts, The, by Brandon D Ray

25,000 words

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

 

Volition Unbound by Rachel Anton

Volition Unbound cover

The return of a man from Scully's past forces her to make some decisions

Some classic angsty jealousy-induced smut from the fabulous Rachel Anton.

The refurbishment of the Orange Tabby Cat Recommends archive is finally finished and you can find this story among others on the Orange Tabby Cat recommends Jealousy list.. 🙂

Possessions Series by Angel

33,000 Words

Book Cover: Possessions Series by Angel
  1. Nothing more than smut…. And a little cuddling.
  2. A little friendly bondage & more.
  3. Mulder is in a bad mood and Scully must punish him.
  4. Scully is creative.
  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!

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:

Impulse by Suzanne Schramm

16,000 Words

Book Cover: Impulse by Suzanne Schramm

Mulder and Scully investigate some strange doings in a little town where people seem to have no control over their actions.

! If you 're particularly sensitive you might briefly contemplate whether this is dubcon. If it actually hits the dubcon scale, it's nowhere near as dubcon as the actual show.

I love the opening line of this one. "Scully, have you ever wanted to kill me?". Mulder's obviously concerned about being sent to investigate the death of an agent previously sent to investigate a crime in this town at the hands of his partner...

 

Omens by Lepus-Arcticus

63,000 Words

Book Cover: Omens by Lepus-Arcticus

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.

"Fuck me like I'm not sick." Just fuck me. 😉

Scent of a Woman + Atoll by Terma99

34,000 words

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. 😉

Cheekies, Wet With Rain:  Mulder loses a bet but ends up winning.

It's a long weekend here for Labour Day, so I've added some bonus weekend reading. 😉

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....

Book Cover: Sal From 4C by Dianora & MD1016

Mulder and Scully have a fight to end all fights, then discover that making up makes it all worthwhile.

I don't know what it says about me that this is one of my favourite stories.  I love that Mulder and Scully's fight was so low down and dirty. I love that they're both still fuming. I love that Scully heads out in search of satisfaction, and I love the awkwardness of her chosen beau. I love the intensity of their passion, bordering on love/hate, and  I love that things don't quite go right.  I'd love to have seen this one on TV 😀 

Miraculous Series by Mountainphile

Book Cover: Miraculous Series by Mountainphile

Miraculous Manifestation: Scully and Mulder, while in pursuit of a miracle, uncover the one that already exists between them...

Miraculous: Waiting in Motion: After leaving the miraculous hot spring, dark secrets emerge as Scully and Mulder explore an x-file on a remote mountaintop...

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. 😉 

I've used the collages by Amy and Vered to make the cover. The top and bottom image are by Amy from Haven and the middle image is by VeredGF.

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 🙂 

 

Five Times She Ogled His Ass by MonikaFileFan

10,000 words

Book Cover: Five Times She Ogled His Ass by MonikaFileFan

Scully loves Mulder and his body, but her very favorite piece of his anatomy is... yes, you've guessed it! Scully loves Mulder's ass. These CAN be read as one shots but they do tie together in a certain way and you WON'T be disappointed by reading them all.

He heard you! Of course he did. You slam your mouth shut and intend to flick your eyes elsewhere. But Holy God! His dick is now right where his ass was and you don’t flick a thing.

Monika makes great use of Mulder's ass-ets in this series of stories. Some very hot UST which turns into some hot RST.

Touched but Never Held by Rachel Anton

16,500 Words

Book Cover: Touched but Never Held by Rachel Anton

What happens after the funeral in Emily...

A lesson for CC:  When you give the agents life-changing angst, don't just ignore it the next week, make it count by turning it into a rampant smutfest.   Mulder helps Scully deal with the aftermath of Emily.

Caught in the Act series by Parrotfish

40,000 Words

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! 😀 

Primal Sympathy by Lydia Bower

57,000 Words

Book Cover: Primal Sympathy by Lydia Bower

In order to find a cure for Scully’s cancer, Mulder fakes his own death without her knowledge. Once reunited, they embark on a journey of discovery that may end up costing them their lives.

This cancer-arc fic from 1997 had a fandom all of its own.  It's exquisite Scully-torture, but she's comforted with some hot horizontal mambo.  You can even choose to skip the smut if you're not into that kind of thing.... well I suppose it's remotely plausible that someone might not be here for the smut....

Additional Dustjacket by Jennifer

Faith Lost, A by Joylynn

36,000 Words

Book Cover: Faith Lost, A by Joylynn

Mulder and Scully are on the hunt for an elusive X-File. However, in the end, they learn that they are searching for a lot more than just a ghost.

Joylynn's writing is beautifully descriptive. This story has them investigating a bit of an urban legend shortly after Closure. Mulder's decided that Scully is all he has left so he won't risk his friendship with her by wanting more.  As usual, Scully has a different point of view and angst ensues. The UST is strong in this one, but it can't last. 🙂 

Beds Are Burning by ShannonK

12,700 Words

Book Cover: Beds Are Burning by ShannonK

The ever-erotic, if sometimes clumsy, dance from UST to RST. Some allergies, some games, some alcohol, some smut.

Oops, I'm late posting today, and a fic that wasn't supposed to be published yet was accidentally set free.  It's been one of those days.  I re-read this story last night and I'd forgotten how funny it is.  It's highly recommended, especially if you're in need of something lighter... like when your day starts with taking a flying fox to the wildlife hospital for euthanasia and you come home to a sobbing family member who needs consoling and you discover you published a fic you didn't intend to until you'd contacted the author....   :'(

Shipper’s Digest 03: Heatstroke

24,000 Words

It was winter here the other day, so I'm warming up with some heat-related fics.  This is a collection of PWP set in the heat of summer. Summaries aren't really necessary because there's not much plot, it's generally just hot and sweaty MSR.

Includes:
Too Darn Hot by ML
Ignited by Piper Sargasso
Heat Stroke by TJ
Hot & Sticky by Eponine119
Hot by Beduini

PS. There are more heat fics to come. There are so many that I decided to save some for when the northern hemisphere needs heating up.

Tempest Series by Missy P

80,000 words

Book Cover: Tempest Series by Missy P

Mulder and Scully survive a plane crash to find themselves injured and stranded in the Appalachian wilderness.

There's no need to talk this one up, there's an Anne Haynes recommendation on the cover!

Second dustjacket by Analise

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.

Never by A Kinney (Sue Schramm)

9,400 Words

Book Cover: Never by A Kinney (Sue Schramm)

No clever summary. Smut biscuit, pure and simple.

To summarise it, in a still non-clever way, Mulder is on a deep undercover assignment, and a concerned Scully just happens to find him at the right time.  It falls under the irresistible 'fake sex gets out of hand' trope.  The company Mulder's been keeping start to question his manhood when after three months he's never hooked up on one of their regular drinking excursions, so Scully helps him regain some credibility. 😉 

My memory is hazy so I can't remember whether Allison is the author's real name or another pseudonym. While I'm leaning towards them both being pen names, I've posted it as Sue Schramm just in case.  (I just don't want people's smutty fanfic to show up when a potential employer is googling them, for example.)

Shipper’s Digest 712: X-Copulation

25,000 words

I've been screencapping for the new xfphotos archive and happened to catch sight of this episode as it was autocapturing, which inspired me to do a post-ep anthology.  The first story is only PG rated, but it's a good laugh and a reminder of some of the events in the episode.

  1. Bill Scully Meets The X-Cops by Girlie_Girl7 (a smut-free appetiser)
  2. Inversion Layer by Blackwood
  3. Inevitable by Flynn
  4. The Thing With Feathers by Diana Battis
  5. Willow Park: Aftermath by Kelly Moreland

I've used the cover made for The Thing With Feathers in the dustjacket. This was made by Sofia J.

Butt, Montana & Hellhole, Idaho by Jess M

8,900 Words

Book Cover: Butt, Montana & Hellhole, Idaho by Jess M

Scully goes on a date. Mulder is incensed! Comedy and Love ensue.

I thought I'd lighten things up with some jealousy smut. The Scully/Other is no more than a plot device, therefore it could be argued that there is some plot involved.

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

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.

(Some authors names have been disguised to protect the not-so-innocent)

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.

Butterfly in China, A by Nicknoc

Book Cover: Damage Wrought by a Trip to Philadelphia by JHallmark

Mulder reacts to the events in "Never Again."

Part I: Mulder Comes to a Conclusion - R for language and slight sexual
imagery

SIX SMUTALICIOUS 'NEVER AGAIN' POST-EPS

Skin Against Skin by para8Dice
Visceral by Danielle
Cold Night Warm Bed by Atticus
Never Never by Crash
Two Steps Forward by Soodohnimh
Expiation by Johnie

In celebration of my brand new tattoo I thought I'd put together a few angsty first time fics involving Scully's tattoo. I know many don't like this episode, and I admit that I was in the 'Scully didn't do it' camp for a long time, but I've switched to the 'Scully really wants Mulder but he's being a total jerk so she can go have whatever fun she needs without him' camp.  The jealousy angst made for good post eps regardless.

1-900-OH-SANTA by J LaVa & TBishop

Book Cover: 1-900-OH-SANTA by J LaVa & TBishop

Scully is finding this Christmas particularly stressful until she takes matters into her own hands. (a little pun intended)

 

The Sisters in Smut, Exalted Queens of Lurid Fiction, Jacquie & Teresa, wrote this exceptional holiday-themed smutmonster. I hadn't planned to post this one yet, but since it's mentioned in tomorrow's 'He Wore a Fedora' I decided to post it today for reference. Just pretend it's Christmas in July.

D is for Dangerous by Donnilee

19,700 Words

Mulder reacts to the comments of some less than friendly
police once he gets Scully alone while investigating a case.

This is one of my favourites of Donnilee's Alphabet stories. It may be a little implausible and inappropriate, but it sizzles.  When CC gets implausible and inappropriate it's never any fun.

Shipper’s Digest 02: Two Agents, One Tent

14,000 words

Another collection of tropey fics - this time it's two agents consorting in the one tent.  There are only three in this edition, but they're all longer PWPs, and some even snuck in a little plot. 

Circumnavigation by Suzanne Schramm
Sometimes you don't know where you're going until you
get there.

Wildcats by Sheryl Martin (Nantus)
You're not getting anything more than
sex, sex and romance... oh, did I mention sex?

He Otter Known Better by Manik
Mulder's fiendish plans for an erotic weekend go awry when a large weasel launches himself at Scully. A certain portion of Mulder's anatomy suffers several indignities, but in the end, everyone lives happily ever after.

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. 🙂

Book Cover: Poconos by Jess M

Mulder and Scully looking into a series of mysterious deaths (do they ever do anything ELSE?) in that honeymoon capital of the world, the Poconos.

Another very sexy case file from Jess M. She stirs a large dollop of humour into this one and garnishes it with a smut-cherry on top. 

I'm into abandoned stuff, so I found this HuffPost Article quite interesting: The Honeymoon Capital of the World is now Beautifully Abandoned.

Some fires destroy. Others cleanse. Mulder and Scully experience both.

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.

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.

Complicity by Promise64

Book Cover: Complicity by Promise64

A journey through the shadows of guilt, regret, and responsibility, as a horrific case teaches our heroes about the fragility of trust and the cost of a promise broken.

Brief Note: In its way, this story has become my homage to the world of XF fanfiction; it has evolved into something of a pastiche of all my favorite "cliched" fanfic scenarios-Profiler!Mulder occupies a central place in this fic, as does the traditional casefile; Mulder-and-Scully-in-the-Wilderness tm., figures prominently, and it's even a "First Time" fic; Injured!Scully and Injured!Mulder both make cameos, and there's angst aplenty. I did, however, leave out the kitchen sink . I have tried, in my attempts to honor all that I have so dearly loved about XF fic (my very first fandom, ::sniff::), to render these scenarios in my own way, to challenge (or subvert) the genuine cliches while, at the same time, embracing what I adore about XF fanfic, and I have endeavored to give each of these scenarios my own proverbial "spin." Even as I have branched out into other fandoms, and left XF behind for a considerable amount of time, this creative universe has
remained my "touchstone," the fandom by which all other fandoms have
been judged. My sincerest hope is that my affection for this universe
and its characters can be discerned within the content of this story.

Promise64 indulges us in all we love about XF Fanfic in a story that took her eight years to complete, for which I'm very grateful.  I have a note on this one that says !Dubcon bad sex, but I can't quite remember the exact scenario involved.  Don't worry, it's tagged as having great sex too, and angry sex in particular.  I think it's time I re-read it.
