Fourteen stories in 28 days. Are you ready?

Our first selection is the perfect way to start our mini-fic marathon. "Our Mulders" was nominated by [livejournal.com profile] littlegreen42. Written way back in 1997, it is the first in a group of short-short stories Punk came to name the "Ours" series. "And in changing them, we made them ours." I see it as a love-letter to Fox Mulder and to fan-fiction writers for The X-Files.

Posted two years later, "Our Scullys" is a little darker, a little more painful to read, at least for me, and surprisingly prescient, given the ending of the series.

The links are to Archive of Our Own, where you can read the rest of the series, and everything else Punk has written, too.

Continuing my unofficial boycott of all things serious, I bring you something different, courtesy of a timely nomination by [livejournal.com profile] infinitlight. This metafic by Jess Mabe is clever, funny, and offers some interesting observations about writing fan fiction. She rates the fic "R" for Raunchy "but no actual sex was harmed in the making of this story." Damn, even her liner notes make me laugh.

Although the author has left the fandom, and has no working email address, at least none that I am aware of, we would love to know what you think of her story. Please leave us suggestions for next time, too. Humor is especially appreciated by the management at this time.

I think Livia Balaban's metafic is sweet, slyly funny, and wise to the ways of fandom. It makes me nostalgic for what I never got to experience firsthand: being a Phile, back during the heyday of The X-Files.

Classification: Metafic; C with a nonexistent television series
Content: H, A, MSR
Rating: R and a half
Spoilers: A few, through late S8. No further.
Summary: Some excerpts from "Sunday Snaps" days on the 'SETI Troopers' fanfic list.

Let the author know what you think, let us know what you think, and please, make your suggestions for next time.
