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. 😀

Walking the Cage by Deborah Wells

49,500 Words

Walking the Cage cover

A strange sequence of events are put into play after a heated argument between Mulder and Scully.

Scully is kidnapped again, and Mulder is forlorn, which makes for a happy reunion. A very happy reunion.

Boundless by Meredith

5,000 Words

Boundless cover

Under extreme emotional circumstances, no one’s actions are predictable.

This week's hump day fic isn't a straight PWP. Still, it's a shorter fic, with an angst that builds with increasing pressure until the release at the end.  It's a compact fic for those who like a side of pain with their MSR.

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...

Stain of Purity by Nicknoc

42,000 Words

Stain of Purity cover

Mulder and Scully investigate a series of abductions.

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

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.

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.

Therapist by LiviaB

33,000 Words

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.

Freeze I & II by KRoch

5,200 Words

Freeze cover

Mulder and Scully struggle to keep warm overnight in their broken down car as they wait for help to arrive.

A very early proponent of "mind candy", KRoch, demonstrates that a sleeping bag is optional when it comes to keeping warm in this hump day smut.

Keeping it in the Family I & II by Gemma Kingsley

39,000 Words

Book Cover: Keeping it in the Family I & II by Gemma Kingsley

Keeping It in the Family: Believe the Lie, but how deep does the deceit run? What will Mulder and Scully do after Gethsemane and how is Bill Scully involved in all this?

Keeping It in the Family II: Even when on vacation in Hawaii and trying to adjust to their new relationship, Mulder and Scully find themselves investigating another case.

More Bill Jr angst for Scully, post Gethsemane. Poor Scully's been through the wringer lately in the fics I've uploaded. I'll have to give her some mindless smut next to make up for it.

Once again, Scully's family have been used against her, and Gemma is particularly cruel with her storyline. 😉   Fortunately Mulder has returned to life to keep her safe, and satisfied...

 

Swirling Water by Paradise

3,000 Words

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...

Anamorphosis by Eponine119

106,000 Words

Anamorphosis cover

Assigned to find a horrifying serial murderer, Agent Scully discovers things about herself and her past that she never suspected.

Anamorphosis - Greek, to form anew. "the unfoldment of destinies follows ...upon the fall of outer circumstances...[a] substantial event was actually but a veil, a tissue of circumstance, conjured forth or the realization of a plot already formed." [Joseph Campbell, Creative Mythology]

!Numerous content warnings apply: child sexual abuse, recovered memories, rape (not described), suicidal ideations, dissociative disorder.

I know some of you like Scully!Torture, alongside Mulder!Caring of course, and Eponine119 certainly delivers in this one. She throws everything imaginable and worse at Scully in this story. Eponine does take some liberties with the Scully family, but they're entirely believable and usually make more sense than canon. If you like some pain with your MSR, this story will give you plenty of that.

Once upon a time there was a cover created by Mystic, but I can't get my hands on it. 🙁

Under the Influence by Ktblle

Under the Influence cover

“If you stop, I promise I will fuck you within an inch of your life tonight.”

Note: Special stunt clones were used in this fic. Please don't try this yourself.  CW: Drunken shananigans.

A shoutout to the bartenders of DC who go above and beyond to ensure their drunken clientele make it home safely by calling a trusted colleague. Don't be expecting much more in the way of plot in this one. Your're welcome.

Complications Trilogy by Sarah Kiley

308,000 Words

Complications Cover

Complications: After Mulder is in a car accident, Scully continues her investigation in an effort to save him.

Second Chances: Four months after being arrested, Mulder breaks out of prison and seeks Scully's help in clearing his name. To do so, they must make a cross-country trip on the run from the law while Scully has second thoughts about marrying another man. Could this be Mulder and Scully's second chance?

Last Dance: Mulder's messing with something he shouldn't be.

This is an epic early story, beginning in Season 2, so it involves some characters  who never made it far into Season 3.  It's quite a complicated story, to match its name, as it involves time travel and parallel universes, which always make my head spin. It can get quite concerning MSR-wise at points, but you have to trust that they'll find a way.  But I admit to being very glad that an epilogue was added...

All covers are by Sarah.

 

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.

We’re Married Now by Skinfull

60,000 Words

We're Married Now cover

Mulder and Scully go undercover as a married couple to infiltrate a cult in Arizona.

"Look, this was supposed to be a short fic for a 6k word count challenge, but here we are about 60k+ words later, and half way through it basically just turned to smutty smutty smuttness. The case is weak, please don't come here looking for resolution on a casefic. Its contrived, all the tropes, set up for sex. Sorry not Sorry. ¯_(ツ)_/¯"

Skinfull has been churning out novels recently; this is the only one I've had a chance to read so far, but she's an author who's been providing great content for 2 decades so head over to AO3 and read them all! 🙂

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.

Like a Turtle on its Back by Jo-Ann L

25,000 Words

Like a Turtle cover

After several blows to his male ego, Mulder begins to question the equilibrium of his relationship—both professional and personal—with Scully.

Poor Mulder feels emasculated and tries to be one of the boys. It goes about as well as you'd expect.

Path of Thorns (The) by Smurf

53,000 Words

Path of Thorns cover

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

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

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

Girl 77 by MoJo

5,800 Words

Girl 77 cover

Mulder's favourite dancer has been murdered.

Oh the angst when Scully discovers that Mulder has been seeing an adult entertainer who is almost her double.  Some ever-popular substitution fic from MoJo.

Old Friends by McKab

93,000 Words

Old Friends cover
Part of the Old Friends series:

‘He looked up at her, his expression unreadable. “Ever wonder why things happen?” At Scully’s confused look, he continued, “I mean, why things happen at specific times? Why people show up when they do?” Mulder leaned in toward her as he spoke.’

This was the oldest outstanding story on by  "to read" list as I was a little worried about the Mulder/other factor, but I finally read it and it's definitely MSR. Mulder's ex-girlfriend is in the story, and there's some sexual tension between them, but they're both with other people now. 🙂 I have a feeling that I'd read the interlude, which is Mulder/other, and that gave me the wrong idea. Although the interlude isn't part of the original story,  it was written before Part 21 but I've placed it at the end as an optional extra.

The woman at the centre of this story is a likable, interesting character, who works with Mulder and Scully on a case, before working on their personal relationship.

I haven't managed to get my hands on the original book cover created by Nessa, so if you have a copy I'd love to include it here.

There is a sequel to this one, available under 'series' below the downloads.

This week's link to AO3 is another from last year's fabulous case file exchange.  There are still some I haven't read, but I'm getting there.

Vox Series by Catwoman

17,000 Words

Vox sereis cover

Vox: This story’s been running around in my head since I first saw ‘All Souls’, and when I watched it again tonight I knew I had to write this down. See, as with many of this seasons angst-infested episodes, ‘All Souls’ made me feel physically sick, just because of the general unfairness of it all. We know from the episode that the events in the episode also made Scully sick, emotionally if nothing else. I would guess that Scully was haunted by the events of the episode, and will continue to be haunted by them, for quite some time afterward. Well, I think it’s about time Mulder sees what losing Emily has done to Scully, and what he’s doing to aggravate the hurt.

Wait: Nobody ever forgets where a hatchet is buried. Sequel to ‘Vox’.

Ice: Basically Mulder and Scully are just going to spend this entire story just bitching and moaning at each other angrily. If you’re not into that sort of thing, back out now. I’m warning you–MAJOR ANGST!!!

Red: Final story in the Vox Series. Mulder and Scully get a clue.

Although not a direct post-ep for 'All-Souls', this fic details how the chronic ScullyTorture in Season 5 may have affected Scully and impacted the relationship between Mulder and Scully.

Demonstrative by Abracadabra

Book Cover: Demonstrative by Abracadabra

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 by Amperage, Livengoo, Monkeyboy & Rodent

27,000 Words

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.

Last Gift (The) by Promise64

55,000 Words

Last Gift cover

The damage even a deception made out of love can create, the importance and resurrection of hope, and the journey back from the edge of despair.Mulder disappears, presumed dead, until he returns years later to rescue Scully from imminent danger.

You can imagine how Scully would feel to have the person she's mourned for 3 years suddenly turn up and take her away.  Scully has understandably mixed feelings about the whole thing, and they have to process those feelings whilst stuck together, heavily reliant on one another. Lots of delicious angst...

Her Music is Thunder by Suilven

Her Music is Thunder cover

Six months have passed since the New Year's Eve kiss that Mulder and Scully had hoped would lead to more, but hesitation remains. When a new case takes them to Lake Superior and into the middle of a local legend where supernatural forces run as deep as the waters themselves, will their investigation finally break the impasse between them?

I'm taking advantage of the daily releases to link to a few more recent fics 🙂

Mulder and Scully join a pair of mounties in this one to look for a scary lake monster.

Temporary Shelter by Gwendolyn

13,500 Words

Temporary Shelter cover

Mulder and Scully recoup after the events of Biogenesis and learn something from history about repeating mistakes.

An alternate ending to Biogenesis and negates the need for Amor Fati & Sixth Extinction.

Gwendolyn has beautifully crafted this story to make it easily imaginable, and definitely preferable to what we saw in the Sixth Extinction. 😉

In Vino Veritas by Dawson E Rambo

In Vino Veritas cover

Mulder and Scully drown their sorrows after a particularly gruesome case.

I'm surprised they didn't need this kind of comfort more often. 😉

Drunken consent is involved with both parties, but there are no regrets...

To Kill a Nightingale by Phoenix99

To Kill a Nightingale cover

A mysterious tip leads Mulder and Scully into a web of danger and unexpected twists. Have they found what they had always wished for? ... or is the price too high?

There was a cover made for this once upon a time, but alas, it's not on Wayback. If anyone has a copy it would be appreciated. 🙂

An adventure-filled story set just before "all things" in Season 7.

Delta S by Nicole Mason

30,000 Words

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.

Gates of Hell by AlienQueequeg

54,000 Words

Gates of Hell cover

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

CW: violence, death, medical stuff, smut

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

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

 

Fade In by E Livingstone

Fade In cover

Giving in to a night of temptation was the easy part... but what happens when the sun comes back up?

The 'other' for Scully isn't anything to worry about. She forgets him so you should be able to as well...

Sometimes, rarely, I have a dustjacket for a story I can't locate. I'd been looking for this fic for a while until finally stumbling across a Palm Pilot edition.  I've managed to convert it to usable formats for us all to enjoy, so please enjoy this fabulous "Mulder and Scully fall apart without each other thanks to meddling Fowley" fic. Whilst our agents sometimes let their heads overrule their hearts, and their silent communication can fail, they know where they belong.

The "X-Libris" download option will take you to the story posted in another section of the site. It's something I'm trialing at the moment. And you get a .docx file instead of a .txt file because I got tired of converting it to different formats. 🙂

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.

Mulder realises that he's lost his memory of Samantha's abduction.

I felt it was only appropriate to post this fic today, on its 25th anniversary and the day Mulder underwent hypnotic regression in 1999.

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...

This classic, 1995 fanfic is a bit of a rite of passage. There are some disturbing aspects to this fic, but but there are also some good points - it got 2nd place in two 1995 Spooky Awards, for Best Sci-Fi Story and Best Mulder/Scully NC-17 Romance.

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.

Regular People Still: We’re back in 1998 where Mulder and Scully are continuing their sojourn. This means talk about issues between them, discoveries large and small, lots of sex, some laughter, some sadness, and a touch of urgency as they are fast running out of time to be regular people.

This first story was just being discussed on Facebook, and I figured I'd upload it with the sequel for people to read. It may not be Christmas, but this is still a gift from Cathleen Faye.

Born to be Wild by DD4Me2

Born to be Wild cover

Mulder takes Scully out for a motorbike trip and Scully decides to let her hair down for once and get wild.

There are no redeeming features in this fic whatsoever. Enjoy some wild hump day smut.

Fish on the Hook by Writergal2000

24,000 Words

Fish on the Hook cover

Scully, Skinner and agents from DEA search frantically for Mulder, knowing he's been beaten and is in the hands of a mobster.

Mulder's kidnapped and tortured in this one, but it focuses more on Scully's angst as they try to find him, then her concern as she gives him some of her special Scully doctoring. 🙂

As by Dri

As cover

As around the sun the earth knows she’s revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May
Just as hate knows love is the cure
You can rest your mind assured
That i’ll be loving you always

--Stevie Wonder, As

Book One: Mulder and Scully have to fight for their positions on the X-Files.

Book Two:  Part One - Thanksgiving + Part Two  - Christmas (to Chapter 14 - last updated Dec 12, 2004)

Although this edition has an additional part to those available at Gossamer, it comes incomplete. While it didn't make it to its final destination, it does have a satisfactory ending.

Book One of this series is a doozy. Full of delicious angst and heartbreak after Mulder and Scully are caught in a compromising position.

It does lose momentum in Book Two, probably because it never made it to where it was going; Book Two and the planned Book Three were never completed. You may want to stick with Book One only, but it's worth adding the opening of Book Two as an epilogue, both for the humour and to know where things ended up after the preceding angstfest. 😉

Small Things by XochiLuvr

5,000 Words

Small Things cover

One man's trash is his partner's treasure - himself. Post-Pilot smut

XochiLuvr decides to torture Mulder in a whole new way with this hump day PWP. I think that we can all agree that this one's definitely AU. Bob makes a regular appearance in the show after all...

Hallowed by OnlyTheInevitable

70,000 Words

Hallowed cover

In order to get a dangerous, misogynistic cult shut down, Mulder and Scully have to go undercover as a married couple to destroy it from the inside. When they get a little too involved, how will they manage to come out alive?

Can you imagine Scully being subservient and obedient in a misogynistic cult? Neither could OnlyTheInevitable. 🙂  This is another of the wonderful stories written as part of last year's case fic exchange.

Mulder enjoyed Scully's nightwear so much that I felt obliged to have her model it on the cover 😉

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...

Laws of Motion by Syntax6

74,000 Words

Laws of Motion cover
Part of the Invariants series:

“Laws of Motion” is a sequel to “Universal Invariants” which picks up in season five with “Redux II.”  Scully barely has time to unpack before a ghost from the past sends her and Mulder down a murderous rabbit hole.

Through the magic of her storytelling Syn gives us another 'first time' in the second book of this pair. More Ethan & more investigations & more MSR. This story takes our heroes through the fifth season, complete with Emily drama & a Halloween parrot.

Universal Invariants by Syntax6

80,000 Words

Universal Invariants cover
Part of the Invariants series:

"This is an AU story in which I play fast and loose with the first season. While I’m just as glad that Ethan got eliminated from the actual show (I don’t think he would have added much on the screen) I thought it would be fun to play out the relationship here as Scully gets dragged deeper and deeper into the X-Files."

Syntax6 is a legend, as this story and its sequel demonstrate.

Syn gives Scully's deleted boyfriend Ethan a big role in the first season as she weaves some extra cases in for Mulder and Scully to solve. This follows the agents from their first meeting to the return of Scully after her abduction. And while this is Scully/Ethan, Ethan doesn't seem to be doing it for her once she starts on the X-Files.

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.

Contradiction by AmandaRex

3,800 Words

Contradiction cover

It may seem like there’s a plot, but bear with me. I promise it has pretty much no bearing on the true meaning of this story at all. I wrote it to fulfill my personal smut quotient for the week.

Although this is set after the UnNatural, it's more of a post-ep for Milagro.

Hump day PWP. 🙂 Although this is set after the UnNatural, it's more of a post-ep for Milagro.  I'm not sure what else to say about this one - maybe don't expect a lot of romance.

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!!!!

Wish Series by viXen

39,000 Words

WIsh Series cover

THE WISH: On St. Patrick's Day, Scully is given the opportunity to see how life could be different had alternate paths been chosen.

THE WISH II: ALL THE COLORS: Mulder takes a drive that sends him on an unexpected journey.

THE WISH III: A DREAM IS A WISH:  Mulder and Scully face implications

Happy St Patrick's Day. I believe smut is the traditional  St Patrick's Day gift, so please enjoy.

Seraphine by MonikaFileFan

36,000 Words

Seraphine cover

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

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

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

Common Fate of All Things Rare, The by Scarlet Baldy & Aloysia Virgata

45,000 Words

Common Fate cover

Ever wonder what happened between the silence of Never Again and the flowers from Memento Mori? Ever wonder if Scully's night with Ed Jerse affected her relationship with Mulder in any way? Ever wonder what pushed Scully to go to the hospital and find out about her cancer in the first place? Ever wonder how her illness might have affected her work or if she ever thought about Leonard Betts' words?

Well we did...

This is an impressive case file set during that wonderful time of peak angst in Season 4.

I didn't plan t0 post two post "Never Again" fics in a row.  I'd mistakenly tagged this fic as Scully's Birthday but after a re-read discovered it definitely wasn't and it lost its planned Feb 23 release, slotting in after 'Dust' instead.

After you've done reading this fic, you have to indulge yourself in the hilarious outtakes, originally posted at undertherug.net. I've attached them as a PDF file for your added enjoyment:

Obesa Cantavit - The Common Fate Gag Reel     

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

Haunted Moon by Stephanie K

29,000 Words

Haunted Moon cover

Mulder and Scully find themselves lost and in trouble one night under a haunted moon. But when it's all over and done, can they find love?

Of course they can!

Stephanie has a twisted mind and tortures our agents accordingly. They deserve all the smut they can get after this.

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.

Verlassen Series by TexxasRose

67,000 Words

Verlassen cover

Verlassen: The knowledge Mulder receives from an informant is more dangerous than ever before. How much will he sacrifice to guarantee Scully's safety?

Guarded Secrets: It’s been two months since Mulder’s return from Verlassen, and he is almost fully recovered. Just as things seem to be working out for the happy couple, danger strikes again from unexpected sources.

Once again, TexxasRose brings on the Muldertorture, then she ups the stakes when things are starting to go well and tortures them both. There's a little actual torture involved as well as the beginnings of sexual assault, but nothing too graphic. Mulder gets a kitten, so that should make up for the unsavoury events. 😉

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

Overnight Sensation by Syntax6

88,000 Words

Overnight Sensation cover

Set post Two Fathers/One Son, Mulder and Scully struggle to get back on the same page as a serial killer stalks couples in the Boston area.

It was fortuitous that permission to share some of Syntax6's stories came just in time to share this Valentine's Day fic.  Don't expect any sappy romance though, it's set immediately after One Son before Mulder and Scully start back on the X-Files.  Scully needs some alone time before the X-Files reopen and accepts a case in Boston. Naturally her alone time doesn't last long.

There aren't a lot of hearts and flowers in this one.  Pissy Scully is on point with her snarky thoughts about Mulder and Fowley. Mulder is on his toes, and Fowley is peak Fowley.  Of course, Mulder ends up on Scully and vice versa by the end.

I'll take this opportunity to surreptitiously plug Syn's original novels again.  Find out more at her web site.

Lesser Evils by Hannah Mason

42,000 Words

Lesser Evils cover
Part of the Evils Universe series:

Mulder thought that no one could ever want Scully as much as he did. He was dead wrong.

The two stories in this universe were written by Syntax6 under her earlier alias.  As excited as I am to post these fics, it doesn't come close to the excitement I'm feeling at being given permission to post a number of Syntax6's stories.  Stay tuned.

If, like me, you can't get enough of Syntax6's writing, she's just released her 4th novel.  I don't want to give details here, where her "legit" writing can be associated with her fanfic, but if you love the way she manages to pull twists out of nowhere, you'll want to follow this link to her webpage for more information.

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.  😉

Little Blue Pill & Heat Wave by Caz_the_Beeslayer

4,800 Words

Little Blue Pill cover

Little Blue Pill: Someone spiked Mulder's drink with viagra at the FBI ball...

Heat Wave: Mulder and Scully have a little fun with ice cream Set after little blue Pill

All I can say is that I wish I had a trusting working relationship like this with my handsome co-workers.  Scully goes above and beyond the call of duty at this FBI Ball.  Later on they relieve each other in the heat.

Because these were companion fics I left them out of both the Heat and the FBI Ball Shipper's Digests when they were compiled.  There's not much substance to them, so I'm releasing this 'book' as a bonus extra to celebrate ...ummm... Groundhog Day on Tuesday!  Best wishes for a Happy  Groundhog Day!

Shadow Series by TexxasRose

82,000 Words

Shadow Series cover

Somebody loves Mulder a little too much...

All hail, TexxasRose, Queen of Muldertorture!

I'm surprised that it's taken me 2 years to post some TexxasRose fics, as she was quite prolific in her writing, although she had numerous name changes at the time in an effort to avoid her own personal stalker.  She was also a long time keeper of Mulder in Jeopardy.

This stalker series focuses on Mulder this time, and has lots of twists and turns for your enjoyment.

Dares Series by Eponine119

21,000 Words

Dares series cover

Eponine119's Dares series has our agents messing around and exacting revenge on one another, with some fun and games sprinkled into a very drawn out game of Truth or Dare.  A bit of a flippant, humourous tale, that finishes as they realise that they don't need the games after all.

Since I already had this one combined and ready to go, I figured an extra day of PWP for world peace won't go astray.  This is one of those fics that I remembered being better than I found it on my recent re-read. Eponine119 has a lot of magnificent stories, but I'm not sure this early fic, written in 1995, quite reaches that standard.  It could just be that my expectations were higher, so if I lower yours you might enjoy it more. 😉  It's a little on the juvenile side, but if you're after total escapism it might be just the thing...

 

Torn Shirt Series by Soleil Compeau

16,000 Words

Torn Shirt cover

Mulder finds something in his closet that seems to reflect Scully's care and love for him. He keeps it, and begins to concoct fantasies centering around that memento, fantasies in which Scully openly shows her desire for him.

Continuing with my extra PWP for world peace posts, Soleil provides some post-Monday fantasy.

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, Water Torture & A Healing Touch by Krikkit

3,000 Words

Hydrotherapy Series cover

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

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

A Healing Touch: Mulder and Scully finally give in.

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

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

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.

Ensky by viXen

37,000 Words

Ensky cover
Mulder and Scully investigate a string of mutilation cases in Northern Arizona while Scully deals with a mystery closer to home.

Mulder and Scully go to Flagstaff for a case during some trying times in their personal relationship - it's the kind of thing I live for.

A Visit to Venus Springs by Destyshell

Venus Springs cover

There's something mysterious in a picturesque Colorado mountain village where romance is rampant and the birthrate is astronomical.

I was reminded that it's not easy to download from ff-net so I've added a PDF version for this one.  I download them through calibre but before that I used to use ficsave.xyz to download in my chosen format.

This one's a sweet story with Mulder trying to do something nice for Scully. He's not always a self-consumed jerk. 😉

  • One Shameless Night by Eponine119

This collection should well and truly cure  you of any residual angst from the Lost series. 🙂

Lost Series, The by Wintersong

204,000 Words

Lost series cover

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

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

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

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

Book Cover: Twelfth Night by Marigold

It was only a kiss.

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

This story finishes off my 14 festive days of fics I challenged myself to post to get myself in the swing of things again. I'm aiming to get back to posting 3 times a week, but I still haven't managed to get back to reading emails again. Fingers crossed that I get there soon. I have important emails to send too. 🙂

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 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.

Simple Gifts cover

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

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

12 Tales of Xmas cover

Have yourself a merry little Christmas...

A post-ep for "How the Ghosts Stole Christmas" that continues on through the start of Season 6.

Note: This series isn't related to the other "12" series by Anne Haynes.

Sorry I've been derelict in my uploading duties again, but unfortunately it's par for the course when battling chronic illness. I did really want to get some Christmas fics up so I'm pushing myself to get some holiday joy to you, and hoping that it gets me back on track.   I apologise to those lovely people who've contacted me and I haven't gotten back to you. I'll get there.

This story starts as a relationship story, post HTGSC, but morphs into so much more as Mulder and Scully navigate their way through early Season 6.

Wishing you all the best for the holiday season.

Covenant by Rhondda Lake

Covenant cover

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

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

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

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

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

March by Blue Samutra

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).
