What better way to finish up a fic marathon than with snippets by JET (go check out Friday's fic) and Penumbra? Octopods is first. I remembered it from the short time it was up on Penumbra's now defunct website. She took it down ("I'm not sure how polished it is," she disclaims humbly) but has kindly agreed to let me post it to the book club for our exegetic purposes.

Title: Octopods
Author: Penumbra

And because I didn't remember Octopods was quite such a tiny little snippet, I felt perhaps two such snippets were in order, so there's also a second, if you choose to partake, about which the author says:

Probably 'R' rated. In the good old days, we called this a smut biscuit. And because I insist on continuing to foster bad XF ff cliches, we'll call this one:

Going Down

I once told Jesemie's Evil Twin that a snippetfic from her every year or so would be enough to keep me in love with Mulder and Scully forever. I wasn't brown-nosing, her snippetfic is just that good. Go check it out.

wendelah1: adult Fox Mulder and his mother (mother and son)

Today's short-short is "Intervention of Elves" by Lisby. It's a two-hour improv; the genre is post-col.

Before I forget, here's working link to "Eyes Shut". That's a damn sexy story.

We just blew past 150 stories, people. I guess posting a fic every other day for a solid four weeks will do that.

Today is also the birthday of one Dana Katherine Scully, who just turned 47 years young. To celebrate, how about reccing us a favorite Scully-centric story. Bonus points if it's not about the cancer arc or Emily. Extra bonus points if it's funny.

One of my favorites is "Failure to Die" by Kel. It's not about the cancer arc or Emily. Scully gets to act like a real doctor in it, by actually being a doctor during an undercover assignment. Mulder is undercover, too. He gets to play a Richie-Rich type on parole for drugs, working as a orderly. Gee, that's a stretch. It is narrated by the one and only Jerry Luskin who gets to play a retired FBI agent, now working as chief of security at the hospital, also perfect type-casting. They are all guarding a Mafia guy who is supposed to testify in federal court, except for he's in a coma, if I recall. Oh, and the hospital is haunted. It is a hoot. And Scully is awesome in it. Go read it now.

I should probably give Kel her own tag.

Okay, so post about "Intervention of Elves," "Eyes Shut," Scully's birthday, and don't forget, a fav Scully story! I realize it is now February 24th in most of the world. I can't help it if I live in PST.

Here we have...well I'm not entirely sure what to call it. Late seasons pseudo-apocafic? It defies genre, that alone has me intrigued. And do check out "the even-numbered pages" too, if you can. It got a little stiffed for time of its own.

AUTHOR: Sabine (sabine101@juno.com)
ARCHIVE: Gossamer, Spookys okay. Else please drop a line.

This might be a little over the word limit but I remember it being worth it. Writing talent makes all the difference. Oh yeah, this is substituting for "The Right to Remain Silent" because we already read it here back in 2008. Feel free to go read it again. It's good, too.

DISTRIBUTION/FEEDBACK: aloysia.virgata@yahoo.com. Please ask before archiving.

RATING: NC-17

CLASSIFICATION: Angst, vignette, Scully/Other (But wait! Read my author's notes before you close this. *laugh*) Mod's Note: Author's note is at the site.

SPOILERS: Three Of A Kind

SUMMARY: They share a small laugh, understanding each other and not understanding themselves at all.

DISCLAIMER: They don't belong to me, but I am usually very careful with them. I don't deliberately give them BRAIN CANCER or TAKE THEIR KIDS AWAY like some people I could mention. Ahem.

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.

"Our Mulders"

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.

"Our Scullys"

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