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. 😀

A class lecture with some interesting results.

Abracadabra shows us that a relevant plot can be superfluous with our adventurous agents in this hot little hump day fic.

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.

Dimestore Hooker by Jori

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...

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...

Backseat Ethics by Flynn

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.

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.

It all seems to be over, but the Smoking Man has information that will change how Scully sees herself.

 

*epub version should be working*

I'm not a huge fan of the chaos of post-col fics, but This one's an unusual one in that the aliens came and went and things are back to 'normal'. It's difficult to categorize. I've added a few tags but left off a few as well to keep the intrigue.

Tremors & Aftershocks by Gerry Hill

Book Cover: Tremors & Aftershocks by Gerry Hill

Scully and Mulder not only face a monster of a killer, but, even more horrible, must confront their own relationship.

This is another fic that came to mind for buried alive stories (see 34 Hours). In this one they're not deliberately buried though.  So much glorious angst. And pissy, jealous Scully gives me life. 😀

Revelations Series [Volume 1] by Windsinger

Book Cover: Revelations Series [Volume 1] by Windsinger

The Complete Revelations Series
This series takes place during the first season of The X-Files, beginning the morning after the last scene in The Jersey Devil and ending prior to the Season One finale,  The Erlenmeyer Flask.

The full series is split into three volumes, as follows:
VOLUME ONE:

1. REVELATIONS 1: DAWN
(This has been mislabelled as "Revelations" at the top of each volume) Let us return to the days of yesteryear when Scully's abduction, bounty hunters, clones and cancer are still far in the future. It's the morning after the Jersey Devil case, Scully is dismayed to be given a temporary reassignment while her new partner, Fox Mulder, does some work for VCS. Lots of FIRSTS in this one for these two. PG13 for some violence and occasional adult topics.
2. REVELATIONS 2: THE BOX
Still feeling the affects from a hellish case, Mulder and Scully are handed a little administrative task that develops into something both sinister and dangerous as a grumpy pair of agents are forced to endure each other's company under VERY confined conditions.

VOLUME TWO:
3. THE VACATION
4. THE ABDUCTEE
5. MILE HIGH
6. MEMORIES

VOLUME THREE:
7. JUST THE TWO OF US
8. SKUNKED AGAIN

This is a truly epic series.  It began as one relatively short story, which was then combined with another, and then the complete series was built around them.  Sue often had multiple parts being written at once over the four years it took to complete. It all came together in the end, and due to the fact that only some parts are novel-length in their own right, it's hard to find the full series compiled in the one place.   It's been split into three volumes for size, and since I found three covers so that worked out well. 

This series is smut-lite.  It has lots of UST and romance, but it's not explicit. That doesn't mean it's not good. 😉 According to Sue, "... the whole series is rated PG-13 for adult themes and some violence and a few bad words. The very last chapter (of Revelations 7) pushes the edges of PG13 all the way to 'R' but is suggested rather than graphic. " In this part of the world it would probably be given an MA-15+ rating overall.

Because of its length - the entire series is about 550,000 words - I've split the 8 parts over three volumes.    If you're bandwidth-restricted, the ePub files are the smallest (each under 500kb), the PDF files are the largest (1.5 - 2mb each) and the txt files each hover around the 1mb mark.  I've included a zip file of all three volumes with this one so if you're short on bandwidth you can download all three text files for just over 1mb and convert them to another format yourself if  you want.  Many of the stories can be read as stand-alones so you don't need to read the whole series at once.

*Note - some tags belong to the complete series

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. 😀 

Shut Up, Mulder & Bitch by David S

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: Four Walls by Xenoprobe

Mulder and Scully find themselves trapped in a phone booth in a foreign town...

This is a short PWP challenge-fic to make up for all the drama of the Alternative Season 8 I just posted.  It may not be award winning literature, but Xenoprobe has to gets points for creativity in being able to get Moose and Squirrel indulging in the four-legged foxtrot for the first time in a phone booth. 

Little Black Dress I & II by Evielouise

Book Cover: Little Black Dress I & II by Evielouise

I: All the other writers came up with serious, soul-searching post-“En Ami” fics. I wrote smut. Go figure. While watching that scene in the restaurant, I really wished Mulder could see Scully in that black dress…

II: Mulder takes Scully dress shopping to replace that little black number he burned in the incinerator in my last fic.

Mulder can show a bit of a jealous and territorial streak, but it rarely extends beyond some quality pouting.  At the end of En Ami he took his pouting to a new level as he tried to deal with the hurt, fear and betrayal he felt over Scully's jaunt with  Cancerman.   I loved Mulder's intensity, and this angst has delivered many a delicious fic.  Evielouise capitalised on the smut potential as she brought together a conciliatory Scully and a fuming Mulder for a smouldering first intimate encounter.  She then continued with a little more Mulder territory marking in the followup.
