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 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...

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.

Delta S by Nicole Mason

Delta S NC-17 cover

“Your mom and Charlie can come, too.” He saw her actually start to listen to the suggestion. “The only thing for miles around is a lodge. They have a barbeque planned and some fireworks. There’s a lake and several miles of trails and —” 

“Just an everyday, ordinary vacation?”

“Yep. Is that so hard to believe, Scully?”

She grinned and opened the door. “Mulder, with you around that’s just about as likely as aliens landing tomorrow.”

I've also included a PG-13 version of this one.

Mulder decides to take some of the Scully family members away for a vacation. Maggie decides that Mulder and Scully should vacation alone. She does end up joining them in Vegas though, and the real action begins there. While this is a crossover, Nicole doesn't want to give anything away too early, and it's not necessary to have knowledge (or memory) of the other situation.

Although they're in Vegas for a specific reason that's not noromo friendly, I've included a PG-13 version because that reason doesn't dampen their bantery relationship at all, and thought some people may enjoy the other action.  Click on the PG dustjacket below to read the smut-free version.

Truth (The) by Eponine119 & Jessica Taylor

114,000 Words

Truth cover

Mulder & Scully, undercover as a couple on a honeymoon cruise. This story riffs off just about every fanfic cliche we could think of.  We did this on purpose, and hopefully it will be obvious we wouldn't have been able to write this if we didn't love fanfic enough to have read lots and lots of stories over the past few years.  It's also very long. We hope it's amusing enough to justify both of these things - it sure cracked us up!

This is the cruise fic to end all cruise fics. Actually, this could be the tropey fanfic to end all tropey fanfics.

The first time I read this story I think I was a little impatient to get to the RST, and completely missed so much of the journey. The UST goes well past any healthy person's frustration levels, but bear with it and just try to enjoy the wild ride.

While Mulder and Scully are undercover on a honeymoon cruise for couples who postponed their wedding 3 or more times, they're subjected to Julie from the Love Boat and the indignity of many couples seminars before accidentally getting married  and becoming living legends. I don't have enough tags to do this story justice, (although admittedly I left a couple off and I have to force myself to stop typing now so I don't spoil everything in it. ) It's also funny how prescient some of their humorous suggestions are. For those of us who love a good fanfic trope, this is the holy grail.

There is a second image for this one, which I believe was made by eponine119.

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.

Regular People + Regular People Still by Cathleen Faye

53,000 Words

Regular People cover

Regular People: Thwarted plans, impulsive decisions & unexpected visitors can sometimes make two FBI agents into regular people.

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.

Awakening (The) by Jeylan

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...

Weekend in Paris, A by Dani Payson

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.

Silent Sea, The by Xphilernj

Silent Sea Cover

The silent sea can be unforgiving at times, but true love is undaunting and forgiving.

Skinner's feeling shippy, so he sends them both to the Virgin Islands on a missing persons case with some extra vacation days.

This story is a quite the departure from Xphilernj's usual short vignettes.  She even came up with her own local mythology story to involve our agents in a rare trip to the US Virgin Islands.

Book Cover: Bed & Breakfast Series by DavidS, Tess, Jacquie Lava & ga

I’ve never been a B&B type of guy. Until now. Until Scully.

Mulder and Scully and a vacation at a B&B.

This fic is the ultimate in escapism; it's  the beauty of what an unencumbered M&S in love look like.   It started as a IWTB Mailing List punishment fic, handed out over grave misdemeanors such as posting a story twice to the list.  There are quite a few really juicy fics resulting from such punishment, and I'm hoping to collect as many as possible and combine in one volume here.

Meanwhile, this is the final story in my daily PWP distraction from US political drama postings, I hope. I'd like to think that as long as Mulder and Scully are doing the wild thing, all is right in the world.  Hopefully we're back to M, W & F posts. 🙂

Resolutions by JessM

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 🙂

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.

Iniquity by Vickie Moseley

Book Cover: Iniquity by Vickie Moseley

While still working on Domestic Terrorism, Scully takes a vacation and Mulder finds himself doing a profile.

! Content Warning: some graphic imagery, not for tender readers.

Scully's in San Diego for Thanksgiving when Mulder's sent there to profile a baby killer.  Once again, Scully doesn't get a vacation and ends up babysitting Mulder.  Vickie has Mulder in full-on psycho profiling mode in this one, with an added degree of physical difficulty, all while staying at Bill Jr's house.

You may have noticed that I haven't been uploading regularly since returning from my time away with the bats. I'm behind in everything at home and struggling to get back into routine. I'll get back on top of it all once I stop beating myself up over it. 🙂

Normal Halloween & Winter by Branwell

45,000 Words

Normal Halloween cover

A Normal Halloween: This is a stand-alone story of Mulder's and Scully's
'normal' 1999 Halloween. Set after "The Sixth Extinction" but is a prequel for "Winter I: The Riddle"

Winter I: The Riddle:  Mulder finds an X-file to distract him from the pain of Thanksgiving memories and Scully unexpectedly agrees to join him in investigating it. The experience turns into more than the simple diversion they planned. A darker mystery presents itself and threatens to expose more of their own emotions than they want to reveal.

Winter II: More than Glass:  Mulder and Scully find themselves dealing with the issue they have successfully avoided for seven years -- their exclusive attachment to each other and their mutual physical attraction.

 

With this Halloween fic you get an extra Thanksgiving story, so keep that in mind when I forget to do one for Thanksgiving. 🙂

Branwell gives us a Mulder and Scully who have been worn down both from years of fighting malevolent forces and being unable to share the repeated trauma with anyone else without ridicule and disbelief.  They're reluctant to trust anyone, including each other for fear of inflicting more pain.  They're ruled by their own insecurity and question whether they can even trust themselves.

I don't mean to put you off at all; it's actually a very real Mulder and Scully considering what they've been through, and there is such beauty in their tragedy.  Branwell doesn't put them through too much torture in these stories, but their actions and reactions are those of tortured souls.  There is real feeling in the way they treat each other, and underneath it all there's their deep abiding love. Eventually they find what they need in each other.

Book Cover: Splash in Texas, A & Fireworks by xfimnotdone

A Splash in Texas: Mulder and Scully return to Texas for vacation fun, improving their relationship has never been so fun or so hard.

Fireworks:  After their argument in Texas, Scully comes to terms with what she wants and how to control her controlling side.

There's no shame in shameless smut.  There should be more of it in this messed up world we live in. 🙂

I'm still plugging away at Donnilee's "Other Author" sites, and I've done Michelle/xfimnotdone's now, twice, and decided that this 4th July fluff was appropriate to post here given the date.

Donnilee's Fireworks dustjacket is MIA, so I've done a replacement for the site.  There are a few yet to replace on Michelle/xfind's pages once I get the rest of the sites updated.

If your eyes hurt too much at the web link to the left, I'm trying a new version at  https://donnilee.xf-redux.com/xfind/.

xfimnotdone, I haven't shown you the new version yet to decide between them because you're supposed to be studying and I don't want to be a bad influence... I'll be in touch...

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. 😉

Healing Waters Series by xgirl

Book Cover: Healing Waters Series by xgirl
Part of the Crossing Lines series:

XGirl continues the Crossing Lines universe, taking Mulder and Scully from after Sixth Extinction through most of Season 7 with angst and love.  There are two R rated stories in this section - if you want to skip the smut, XGirl has PG rated versions on her website.  

I: Truths Untold: In the dark hours before the early morning, the greatest truths out there may well be the unspoken ones. [PG]
II: Reconnection: A day at the beach and a story about a boy and his sandcastle spaceship. [PG]
III: Acceptance: Mulder and Scully take a significant personal step forward after a severe blow to his psyche. (Sein und Seit/Closure) [R]
IV: Just Breathe: Scully finds it difficult to deal with a side of Mulder she's never seen before in the aftermath of her adventure with CSM (En Ami). [PG]
V: Truths Revealed: Mulder and Scully realize that they have to deal with the memory of Diana if they want to move ahead. (all things) [PG]
VI: Waters Edge: The end of the road finally arrives for Mulder and Scully.[R]

XGirl's thoughts on the Post-Fight the Future X-Files (and even post Redux) very much mirror my own. It lost momentum. It tried to crush the Mulder-Scully dynamic, before going on to crush their spirits and change their beliefs.  Her website, xgirl's x-files x-perience, has an analysis of each episode, both on the original watch and a rewatch on the 20th anniversary. The Crossing Lines universe is her attempt to fix up some of the wrongs in Seasons 6 and 7.
