I reread this last month when I noticed [livejournal.com profile] aloysiavirgata had been archiving her fanfic at AO3. I liked it a lot. "This Her Fever" is a connected series of fill-ins set during Gethesemane/Redux, which I enjoyed best for the sympathetic portrayals of the secondary characters: Bill Scully Jr., Maggie Scully and Father McCue.

I think this fic is both noromo and shipper friendly. Members who prefer their fanfic minus the sexy bits can read it as long as they skip past chapter 17 and not lose anything essential since the plot remains faithful to canon. Other readers can now skip right to chapter 17...

Rated R | 26,126 words | Archived 09-07-06
Spoilers: Detour (and Gethsemane and Redux, adds Wendelah)
Keywords: Mulder/Scully romance.
Summary: It is, she thinks, a fitting coda to her life that Mulder and Father McCue should cross paths in this room, both trying to offer her salvation.

Read This Her Fever at AO3 or as a text file at Gossamer.

It seems appropriate to post this Scully-centric fanfic rec on Dana Scully's 51st birthday.

Hi, everyone. Does anyone still want to read and discuss fanfic?

I found this story from a new recs community on Tumblr: MSR Archive. It's not an archive in the traditional sense but each entry does have a picture, the author's summary and a short excerpt, as well as the link. It's the only story they've posted so far that I haven't read, but it was good enough to get me posting here again.

But first, a warning. If you hate the William arc, this is may not be the fic for you. It is not a fix-it fic, and it's certainly not a happy family AU, which understandably is what the fandom seems to prefer.

Instead, "Lucky" is future-fic, set post-IWTB. It reminds me a bit of Mulder's extended dream-fantasy from "Amor Fati" about the ordinary life he didn't choose. In this fic, it's Scully who is dreaming of a different life, a life where she didn't leave the FBI to go on the run, a life where together with Mulder, she gets to raise their son, rather than giving him up for adoption.

"She hears a woman in the supermarket bragging into the phone about how her baby is talking at nine months one evening, and she imagines what it'd be like if Will could have talked, could have made noise when he puckered his lips together, trying for 'Ma.' She couldn't have handled that, she doesn't think. She probably would have run away with him."/ Post-IWTB.

Rated: Fiction T - English - Angst/Family - F. Mulder, D. Scully, William - Words: 1,966

Read Lucky.

This was recently added to the nomination post by [livejournal.com profile] rainatlas and seconded by [livejournal.com profile] badforthefish. Written and posted last year for [livejournal.com profile] xf_is_love month, this story might have been used as an example of darkfic in our recent discussion. I read it when it was first posted and liked it a lot. It begins well and has an equally strong finish.

Summary: Certain important moments were missing from the William arc. My attempt to fill them in. The rating covers adult language and situations.

At 18,000+ words, it's not a short story, but it's divided into six easily consumed chunks.

You can read it at two places.

She actually started a sequel which hasn't been updated in awhile. Maybe if we flood her with feedback...
As always, come back and let us know what you think, and please leave your suggestions in the nomination post.

It has occurred to me—somewhat belatedly—that there may be people in this community interested in another community I'm helping out with during the month of October: [livejournal.com profile] xf_is_love, aka The X-Files is Love Month.

We're...live. There are daily posts of fanworks by the members. We're rewatching all of season two, beginning today with Little Green Men.

There's a Halloween Candy Exchange and a new, Halloween-themed journal layout, custom-made by [livejournal.com profile] ruuger.

There's a Fanworks Wish List.

Halloween is a free-for-all posting day for all members of the community.

[livejournal.com profile] xf_is_love

I'll be providing fanfic recs for the episode posts, where applicable. And I know several people who are writing new fanfic for their claimed days.

The Season Two Rewatch Schedule is here, if you're interested. Otherwise, you can watch or join the community to see the daily posts as they go up.

Sorry for the late notification. I need a BAD MOD icon.

Wendy said I was welcome to post that here, so here we go.


(First posted on Haven)

Moose and Squirrel - before being declawed and tamed by scores of fic writers intent on giving them the white picket fence happiness they were never designed for in the first place - were pretty dark and tortured characters to begin with. A given, considering how much crap they went through in the show.

Back in the days many fic writers explored that dark path and gave us many incredible stories, the quintessential one being, of course, the infamous Iolokus. Stories where the characters' traumas weren't swept under the carpet of True Love (TM) Hot Sex, Domestic Life and Fat Babies. Stories where bad things happened to good people.

They were stories such as:

Arizona Highway by Fialka
Secret World by Bonetree
Grace Realized by Michaela
Injuries to The Spirit by Mystphile
The Mill by Cofax

...to name just a few off the top of my head.

In these stories Mulder and Scully were flawed and damaged. Years of turmoil and horrors weren't cured with a kiss and a soft bed. They had issues with one another, they argued and fought. They could be unfair, cruel, monstrous even - their claustrophobic co-dependency toxic, yet unavoidable. They suffered, battled illnesses both mental and physical, and sometimes they even died. Some stories made a point of reminding us how dangerous their job really was - that the human monsters could be worse than the alien ones. But their spirit shone nevertheless through it all, pure and bright, that elusive spark of magnificence that made them - well, you know, THEM.

As a reader I always found those tales much more emotionally rewarding than those of the bunnies and rainbow - Mulder and Scully in love forever in their pretty house with their pretty children - aw, look he has his mother's eyes and his father's nose - variety.

No pain no gain, uh?

I guess my question is: have you read such stories? Do you enjoy them? Can you rec the ones that stayed with you?

I'm still going back through the older comments at the nomination post. Way back when, someone nominated "Syncopation" by Lilla Vaughan, which I wasn't that crazy about to be frank. I don't remember why. But then I remembered she'd written this fic, which I do like a lot.

In her summary Nanda writes, "I think the title speaks for itself. Oh, and there are rocks falling from the sky, too."

The link is to AO3 but this fic can also be read at Gossamer.

This fic wasn't on the nomination post; instead, an earlier story of Seema's, Where the Heart Is was the nominee. After reading, I resisted posting that fic for a number of reasons. The person who nominated the story wasn't a member, which was fine, but she had no interest participating in the discussion, which seemed odd--at the time. It's not a bad fic but I had trouble with the characterization of Scully, which is unsurprising given how I felt about the movie.

Wanting a shorter fic to post, I reread it this weekend. I also read "Compass," her prequel to the movie. I think Seema's telling essentially the same story in both fics but in this case, the longer story works much better. "Compass" didn't get a lot of attention back in 2009, which is a shame. It's closer in theme to the movie than more popular pre-movie stories such as [livejournal.com profile] onpaperfirst's "Home, Home," or CazQ's "Hard Times Come Again No More." (Don't get me wrong, I loved both of of those fics.) I wish I'd read it before [livejournal.com profile] crack_van closed.

Summary: The truth was a harsh compass. Set after "The Truth" and before the XF2 movie, "I Want to Believe." Anything up to and including the movies are potentially spoilerific. Just one interpretation of how our heroes got to where they were in the movie.
Rated: Teen - Drama/Romance - Fox Mulder, Dana Scully - Words: 22,155

This is a sweet vignette about Mulder and Scully doing ordinary things by one of the old Yes Virginia crowd. I found it on a defunct multi-fandom rec site and thought it might make for a nice change of pace from the long, angst-filled pieces we've been reading recently.

DISCLAIMER: I don't own them. You know who does. I just took them on an outing.

It's our final day. Was it a fun change of pace or an unwelcome diversion?

This is another MOTW episode I enjoy more for the relationship bits than for the X-File. The scene where Scully sings "Joy to the World" to Mulder actually made me tear up, in part because she'll sing it again much later in the series in a much different context. Other than that scene and the one in the car where they talk about building the tower of office furniture, the writing falls a little flat for me. I don't see the slightest resemblance to "Deliverance," which writer Frank Spotnitz claimed was his inspiration.

Writer: Frank Spotnitz
Director: Brett Dowler
Original air date: November 23, 1997

Synopsis: Mulder and Scully are carpooling with fellow FBI agents, Michael Kinsley and Carla Stonecypher, to an FBI team-building seminar in Florida. When they are stopped by a roadblock, Mulder gets out of the car to stretch his legs. Before Scully can ask, "Mulder, where are you going?", he has ditched the seminar and headed into the woods to assist with a missing persons investigation which Mulder is convinced is an X-File.

Most Memorable Quote:
Scully: Mulder, you need to keep warm. Your body's still in shock.
Mulder: I was told once that the best way to regenerate body heat is to crawl naked into a sleeping bag with somebody else who was already naked. (scoots closer to her)
Scully: (grinning) Maybe if it rains sleeping bags, you'll get lucky.

Communication by Wintersong.
Summary: So, what if Mulder and Scully really did get to build a tower of office furniture someday? What would we see?
Energy and Light by Oracle (on her Gossamer page) Wendy's note: not specifically a post-ep but it's season five, the fic takes place in a forest and it fits the mood. Plus I'm the mod.
Summary: Four girls have vanished, each one on a different night. Each one by the light of a full moon. Is it just a coincidence?
Still Life with Implant by denynothing1 aka Barbara D.
Summary: Adjusting to life in remission.
This Her Fever by Aloysia Virgata. Wendy's note: I'd never read this because the summary made it sound like cancer fic, which I mostly avoid for personal reasons. But it's not about Scully having cancer, it's Scully-in-remission fic and canon-compliant, too.
SUMMARY: It is, she thinks, a fitting coda to her life that Mulder and Father McCue should cross paths in this room, both trying to offer her salvation.

Egad. Day six already. True confession: I have watched "Small Potatoes" several times just for the scene in the X-Files office where David Duchovny is playing Eddie Van Blundht, the human shapeshifter. Eddie, who has locked up the real Fox Mulder in a janitorial closet in the basement of the local hospital, is now practicing his moves in preparation for taking over Mulder's life. Duchovny's a good mimic, and demonstrates a genuine gift for physical comedy. It's a funny, funny scene.

Minor announcement: I got the episode order wrong in the original posting. So that means tomorrow's episode will be "Small Potatoes" and Friday's "Detour." Sorry for the mix-up. Mea culpa.

I enjoyed this episode except for one thing. "Poor Queequeg!" Besides being the episode that kills off Scully's pet dog, "Quagmire" is best known for its third act: the conversation on the rock, consisting of almost ten pages of whimsical dialogue between Mulder and Scully.

Mulder: Scully, are you coming on to me?

This episode appears on many best episode lists and is a favorite of fans and critics alike. Reportedly, when Gilligan turned in the script, he told Chris Carter that the episode was "the best work I'm ever gonna do for you." I think "Bad Blood" is much better, but that's just me.

This is Darin Morgan's maiden voyage as a writer for The X-Files. He previously appeared in season two in "The Host" as Flukeman. I haven't watched it yet (World Cup!) so let's see what I remember. Well, Scully eats a cricket. They exhume a potato. Mulder looks hot. It's the first episode conceived to be humorous, as opposed to having a quip or two.

Originally aired: March 31, 1995

Synopsis: Mulder and Scully travel to the small town of Gibsonton, Florida to investigate the latest of a series of mysterious attacks, which occurred throughout the US over the past 28 years. They begin by attending the funeral of the most recent victim, who was a member of a community of former side-show performers.

Most Memorable Quote:
Mulder: Tell me, have you done much circus work in your life?
Mr. Nutt: And what makes you think I've ever spectated a circus? Much less been enslaved by one?
Mulder: I know that many of the citizens here are former circus hands, and I just thought that...
Mr. Nutt: You thought that because I am a person of short stature, that the only career I could procure for myself would be one confined to the so-called 'Big Top'. You took one quick look at me, and decided that you could deduce my entire life. Never would it have occurred to you that a person of my height could have possibly obtained a degree in Hotel Management.
Mulder: I'm sorry. I meant no offence.
Mr. Nutt: Well then why should I take offence? Just because it's human nature to make instantaneous judgments of others based solely upon their physical appearances? Why I've done the same thing to you, for example. I've taken in your all-American features, your dour demeanor, your unimaginative necktie design, and concluded that you work for the government; an FBI agent... but do you see the tragedy here? I have mistakenly reduced you to a stereotype. A caricature, instead of regarding you as a specific, unique individual.
Mulder: But I am an FBI agent.

From the same team that gave us "Ice," next up is "Little Green Men," another early season gem. Scully engineers a covert meeting with Mulder in a parking garage. We finally get our first glimpse of an extraterrestrial biological entity, and are introduced to Mulder's longtime ally in Congress, Senator Richard Matheson.

Originally aired: September 16, 1994

Synopsis: The X-Files are shut down, with Mulder put on wiretap duty and Scully sent back to Quantico. Mulder gets a tip from Senator Matheson that something important is going down in at an abandoned NASA observatory in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. Mulder goes AWOL and heads to Arecibo. To no one's surprise, Scully figures out where he's headed and goes after him.

Most Memorable Quote:
Scully: And you're worried that all your life, you've been seeing elves?
Mulder: In my case... little green men.
Scully: But, Mulder... during your time with the X-Files, you've seen so much.
Mulder: That's just the point. Seeing is not enough, I should have something to hold onto. Some solid evidence. I learned that from you.

Our mini-rewatch begins! So, "Ice" has it all: sex, violence, black humor, bad science, plenty of opportunities for scenery chewing, and some of the tensest scenes between Mulder and Scully of the entire series.

My favorite retro-nineties fashion moment from season one is Dana Scully standing there wearing her gigantic puffy coat. She looks all of thirteen in that scene.

Maybe it's time for a reread of Universal Invariants by [livejournal.com profile] syntax6.
Summary: 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.

And now for something completely different...

Why? Why not. Tomorrow's the official start of summer. The The X-Files LJ community hasn't had a mini-rewatch since the one we did in February at [livejournal.com profile] scully_fest. My other active comm is on hiatus until July. I have a new writing assignment so obviously the thing to do is put that off and watch some episodes!

While spontaneity is the spice of life, it's also good to have a plan. Except--there's no time! We just have to make it happen. So I'm borrowing from this list, but subtracting the episodes we watched during [livejournal.com profile] xf_is_love month and [livejournal.com profile] scully_fest. So that leaves "Ice," "Little Green Men," "Pusher," "Quagmire," "Detour," and "Small Potatoes." I'm throwing in "Humbug" (and keeping "Little Green Men"). Just because.

We'll start tomorrow with "Ice." I'll try to put up a post every day at 10:00 am my time, which is the middle of the afternoon on the East Coast, early evening in Europe and the middle of the night in Australia. My time zone sucks, folks, but that's the one thing I can't change. Here's the rest of the schedule.

June 21: "Ice"
June 22: "Little Green Men"
June 23: "Humbug"
June 24: "Pusher"
June 25: "Quagmire"
June 26: "Detour" "Small Potatoes"
June 27: "Small Potatoes" "Detour"

There will be fanfic recs where applicable. Publicize this far and wide. You don't need an account here to participate. Anonymous comments are enabled. Regular programming will resume in July.

So, watch "Ice" and come back tomorrow for discussion. Are you with me?

This is a brand new nomination. I haven't read it, but I remember reading "Undying" a long while back and liking it a lot. I just read her post-ep for "Deep Throat." I liked it. Then I read her post-ep for "Conduit." I liked it, too.

Summary: Five missing women, all Salvadoran immigrants. A mass grave on the slope of a volcano, the bodies burned beyond recognition. What's the connection? An anonymous tip sends Mulder and Scully on a dangerous search for the truth. R for violence, gore, disturbing subject matter, and sex. X-File, Mytharc, Angst, MSR. 212 K.

The nomination post is always open for your suggestions. I look forward to your thoughts on "Salvador." Don't forget to send feedback to the author.

Being in the mood for something light and fluffy, I thought it might be fun to reread "How to Fake an Orgasm" by V.Salmone aka Punk and Sab. We last visited this fic in 2008.

I ran into this story while perusing the YA author Malinda Lo's website. There's a small section of non-fiction which she wrote in grad school, and a website devoted to Dana Scully, which includes a small archive of Scully-centric fanfic. Yes, Malinda Lo is an X-Phile. I decided to reread some of the stories. This lovely story was in the section called "Disease/Dis-Ease." It's set during season two, after Scully has returned to work following her abduction.

Characters: Fox Mulder, Dana Scully
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 1,900
Author's Note: Takes place in November 1994 between "Firewalker" and "Irresistible." For the purposes of fiction I'm eliminating the month-long quarantine Mulder mentions at the end of "Firewalker."
