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. 😀

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.

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...

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.

 

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.

Forget to Remember by Parrotfish

15,000 Words

Forget to Remember cover

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.

This has more plot than the usual hump day fic, but I'll find something plotless to make up for it on Friday.

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.  😉

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.

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. 🙂

Twelfth Night by Marigold

12,500 Words

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. 🙂

 

Trigger Stories by PhileyX

40,000 Words

Trigger stories cover

Fox: Ever wonder why Mulder finally kissed Scully on New Year’s Eve? Here’s my theory…….

Mulder: So Mulder managed to resist Scully. Will she be able to resist him?

Toady: Agent Archie Travis goes on the mission to find out what Agent Scully left behind in Agent Mulder’s apartment. This story was initially set after "Fox" but written after "Mulder" so it includes details revealed in "Mulder". It's been shifted accordingly.

Even: Whoops, just a slip of the tongue...

Kiss: How far would Mulder go to know what happened? Mulder is desperate to know about what happened when he was in the mercy of his partner. How far would he go to find out? Meanwhile, Scully plays a mean joke on him and Archie finds the woman of his dreams

 

Mulder and Scully are faced with the extremely tough challenge of resisting each other's advances.  It's another one that's only PG (I don't know what's wrong with me), but there's plenty of fighting of urges.  It gets a little silly at times, but it's all in fun.

Never for You by LMControl

157,000

Never for You cover

Living, loving……. and learning to let go. Set in the future, post episodic series finale, the X-Files are closed permanently due to unforeseen circumstances. Facing the dissolution of the partnership, Mulder and Scully go their separate ways trying to find a future, unable to see past their history. All the while, evil forces surround them in Washington that threaten the very existence of our nation’s most prized possession….democracy.

LM Control emphasizes the slow in slow burn in this one.  While there are tags for /others they try but there's no follow through IYKWIM.   There are case files in case files as M&S deal with the closure of the X-Files.

Plague by Eponine119

42,000 Words

Plague cover

Summary in one short sentence: Mulder and Scully are spared from a
plague that sweeps the earth.

Author's note: This is a long story. It is set after Memento Mori, but
before Gethsemane. [Actually, Gethsemane wouldn't have happened if this
had.] Mostly it would fall into the category of angst, but it has a
little bit of just about everything: Mulder/Scully romance including
sex, mythology, a plot, and a [sort of] crossover.

!Plenty of character deaths, but not the two that matter most.

You may not wish to read plague-fic during a global pandemic, but eponine119 couldn't have possibly imagined what it's like for many people right now. This fic bears no resemblance to our current circumstances and might help you appreciate that whilst Covid-19 has been turned into a ridiculous political  soap-opera, at least we weren't all wiped out in days. 🙂

I assume that the cover image (the important part of it, below) was made by Eponine119

Splash in Texas, A & Fireworks by xfimnotdone

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.

Fireworks cover by x-trash.com

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...

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:

Miraculous: Signs of Life: A frantic ride into the night leads Scully to witness the greatest miracle of her life...

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.

Erlona’s Heart by MD1016

79,000 words

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.

Backtracking by Kel & Scetti

Book Cover: Backtracking by Kel & Scetti

What do Charlie Scully, the Alien Bounty Hunter, and Jesse “the Body” Ventura all have in common? Last April you could have found all three of them in Minnesota.

The mysterious Charlie Scully gets to come out and play in this one, set around an icy waterfall and steamy hot springs at Temperance Creek State Park in Minnesota.  It's a nice trip to a cabin in the snow... that ends up in hospital.

Assumption of Guilt, An by Gerry Hill

24,000 words

Book Cover: Assumption of Guilt, An by Gerry Hill

Scully makes an assumption about Mulder and it nearly derails their partnership.

The stress of back to back profiling cases results in some friction between our agents.  A series of misunderstandings doesn't help things until they finally work out where they're supposed to be. 😉 

I was looking for a solstice fic, but because I'm on the wrong side of the world it's Yule here, and in the X-Files world Yule is at Christmastime, so nothing quite fit.  I gave up and got one set around the northern Summer solstice in season 7.

These fics have been compiled in the order in which they were posted to Ephemeral, but the PDF & ePub versions should have a table of contents so you can read them in whichever order you like. They are all pre-eps, post-eps or missing scenes.

Mulder and Scully go camping.

S'mores, skinnydipping & smut.

I really wanted to share "Five Years and One Night" by Shalimar but as I was preparing it I noticed it had a Do Not Archive request.  I still don't know whether I should post those ones; I kind of figure that it's 20+ years later and the care factor is probably no longer there, but I want to comply with the authors' wishes.  Let me know what you think so I can blame you all 😉 Or if you know how to contact Shalimar can you please beg her for me?  Thanks.

Book Cover: Drugged by Peacenik0

Prompt: Mulder and Scully are accidentally drugged and can't help themselves. Exhibitionism, marathon sex, multiple orgasms for both of them.

I was a little hesitant to read this one initially due to the dubcon nature of it, but it's clear that these guys want each other, they just usually have better self-control. To give you an indication of what's involved, the tags given by peacenik0 include: Car Sex, Exhibitionism, Light Dom/sub, Marathon Sex, Oral Sex, Outdoor Sex, Pool Sex, Rough Sex, Sex on a Car, Shower Sex.

This fic not only has marathon sex, it has a bit of marathon cover art. I ended up doing a cover illustration for Peacenik0 for each chapter as well as the main cover:

I have a feeling I may need to reuse parts of these images in other cover art, as the pool one in particular turned out too well to be hidden away. 🙂

Lost Time by Spider

59,000 Words

Book Cover: Lost Time by Spider
Part of the Human Affairs series:

Diana continues to interfere after One Son. Our agents couldn't be any more distant when they're sent out of the country on a case.

Author's Notes: For almost 20 years I have lived in a country with a 5,000 year old culture, spending months in villages that count years since the last white person was seen. I was once an academic and thus am still more skeptic that believer. But I have also seen things... On my last trip to Ambrym volcano, I was stuck in a leaky hut with dead bodies from black magic littering the area. . My helicopter pilot companion thought I was screwy reading Xfiles when we lived the damned things. So a bottle of tequila and an annoyance about the M&S relationship post One Son in hand, I sat down with many battery changes, incorporated real life to fiction and ended up with this.

 

This is one of my favourite fics. I can't get enough Fowley-induced-angst, and she's at her evil worst in this one.  It does reference Human Affairs, a previous story by Spider, but  it's not necessary to read that story before this one. You might notice that I've tagged both stories as UST to RST, but there's a reason for that so just go with it. 🙂

Spider is clearly a gifted writer. She's actually an international bestselling author in her own right. The book referenced under the Lost Time image below is a science-fictional look at the results of climate change and the subsequent breakdown of society that's already quite frightening in 2020. The author has released it as a free download if you'd like to Ecosia it (alternative to Google with more trees and fewer data collectors).

18+ months later - I just found some original artwork for Spider's stories. I assume that this was created by Spider as it didn't state otherwise. I've also mocked up an image to direct you to the author's other work without search engines being able to associate that  work with this fanfic (I hope).

 

Conversation Hearts by Lara Means

Book Cover: Conversation Hearts by Lara Means

Mulder and Scully's first Valentine's Day together after the events of "Millennium". I decided I liked this Mulder and Scully -- playful and romantic, but still carrying lots of emotional baggage -- and I wanted them to play some more in this little world I'd created for them. There are six completed stories in the series, including the prologue, Non-essential Personnel. [There's mention of more - I've searched thoroughly and can't find them, but all stories included are complete so you won't be left hanging.]

Includes:

  • Prologue: Nonessential Personnel - PG - Mulder and Scully have a snow day.
  • Conversation Hearts I: My Funny Valentine - PG - As Valentine's Day approaches, Scully gets a glimpse of Mulder's playful, romantic side.
  • Conversation Hearts II: The Dating Game - R - their first date
  • Conversation Hearts III: Always, Forever - NC-17 - Scully gives Mulder her Valentine's Day gift.
  • Conversation Hearts IV: Taking Care of My Partner - NC-17 - Scully's been working hard on a case, and Mulder plans an evening of pampering. massage, bath, pampering.
  • Conversation Hearts V: Woman's Intuition - R - Mulder comes to terms with his 'spooky' reputation, with a little help from Scully and a new friend.

Naturally, whenever I give up looking for a cover that I know exists and make my own, the original finally turns up.

Tantric by Jacquie LaVa & TBishop

Book Cover: Tantric by Jacquie LaVa & TBishop

"Honest to God, I meant to ease her into it; I never meant to blurt it out like that. You’d think, after seven years and countless bizarre cases, I would have learned my lesson. But I was so excited; so anxious to get my teeth into this one, I forgot to be diplomatic – forgot to use my head instead of my heart. I had spent the weekend going through all the files and the plethora of information I’d found, on the Web and in B. Dalton’s; I’d taken notes, collected documented testimonials from folks who had decided to talk about what they knew of this particular organization… by the time Scully hit the basement on Monday, I was so wired that she never had a chance.

Posing as my little wifey, and involving herself in what could be considered 'deviant sexual cultish situations…'”

This one has some delicious "keeping it real while undercover" smut in it.  I had a little trouble imagining Scully losing control to the extent she does, but I'm willing to forgive these writers this once; they're two of my all-time favourites. And like I say, OOC is perfectly acceptable when there's intense sex involved...  which is why I hate it when CC takes them out of character.

Please be aware that there are many disturbing elements in this fic, and Scully bears the brunt of a lot of the coercive behaviour, so proceed with caution.
