Our second Halloween fic this year is "Through the Fire," a very distinctive AU that basically incorporates a little bit of everything into the mix.
In this universe Mulder has been imprisoned for several years on false charges, and Scully has continued their work in his absence. Now she must cope with a dangerous case - an MoTW with its roots at the heart of the mytharc - while also coping with a sudden change in Mulder's circumstances. It's a tense, unusual, and downright creepy fic with an M/S dynamic that's intense and quite lovely. Diana, Jeffrey Spender, and Skinner also have parts to play.Through the FireOh my god, you guys, I'm SO SORRY! Anyone who downloaded the text file of the fic missed chapter 6!
My face is literally
in my palms. I read the whole fic and didn't even realize I'd missed an entire chapter, and from the looks of things an important one. I only just realized it now.
That is, from what I can tell, the only place the fic is posted. If the format (which is seasonally cute, but also rather visually loud
) bothers you, I've uploaded the fic as one complete Word file, which you can download here
Happy Halloween, everyone! And season's greetings to anyone who doesn't celebrate.
