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

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

Mulder and Scully in the desert, talking to each other through tin can phones.

This is a nice 'n' angsty jealousy/betrayal story involving the incredibly dislikable Diana Fowley.  Scully issues an ultimatum and a proposition.  Mulder considers the options.

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.

Basically sex and angst. Lots o' angst.

I'm a big fan of MD's work and would like to post all her novel-length stories here. This is just a short one, but it was an extremely popular fic back in the day. And maybe I felt I needed to balance out the tension after the schmaltzy fic I posted the other day...

Scully in jeopardy, Mulder in mourning, and their connection.

This is a fic that stuck with me for a long time.  It's angsty; full of Scully torture - and Mulder torture by proxy, and it has a devious little twist at the end...
