Mulder and Scully investigate some strange doings in a little town where people seem to have no control over their actions.

! If you 're particularly sensitive you might briefly contemplate whether this is dubcon. If it actually hits the dubcon scale, it's nowhere near as dubcon as the actual show.

I love the opening line of this one. "Scully, have you ever wanted to kill me?". Mulder's obviously concerned about being sent to investigate the death of an agent previously sent to investigate a crime in this town at the hands of his partner...

No clever summary. Smut biscuit, pure and simple.

To summarise it, in a still non-clever way, Mulder is on a deep undercover assignment, and a concerned Scully just happens to find him at the right time.  It falls under the irresistible 'fake sex gets out of hand' trope.  The company Mulder's been keeping start to question his manhood when after three months he's never hooked up on one of their regular drinking excursions, so Scully helps him regain some credibility. 😉 

My memory is hazy so I can't remember whether Allison is the author's real name or another pseudonym. While I'm leaning towards them both being pen names, I've posted it as Sue Schramm just in case.  (I just don't want people's smutty fanfic to show up when a potential employer is googling them, for example.)

A Scully ditch provides the opportunity to get some real answers in the quest for the truth.  Takes place right after Two Fathers/One Son.

I puffy heart this story so much.  It fulfills my post-One Son need for Mulder to have to suffer for his treatment of Scully in that episode (even if it's Scully who's feeling most of the pain). I can be rather masochistic in my enjoyment of the pain of the rift caused by Mulder's unwillingness to believe that Fowley would betray him.  I'm like a mutant who feeds off the intense Mulder-Scully feels, and this story has plenty of calories to burn off.
