Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.All the Mulders by Alloway
''Synopsis: A short, script format humor flick, lampooning how frequently elements of the show didn't hold up to scrutiny, not only when compared against real life but sometimes against itself as well.
Comments: Takes the throwaway line from S3's 'Wetwired' about Mulder being red-green colourblind and explores beautifully what differences that would have made to his life and his patterns of thinking.
Synopsis: Crossover with Stephen King's epic The Stand.
Comments: Crossing over two very different literary voices — the one established in The X-Files and Stephen King's voice — is not easy. And yet they manage to pull it off in this. MabTNG was writing this a chapter at a time, and went on pause for about a year with about three chapters left to go — and a number of readers nearly ran mad emailing the poor woman asking her "WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO FINISH!" (Someone even offered to give her a lifetime supply of FISH if she'd just finish.)
Synopsis: Post-colonisation angst. A short original story about what happens to Mulder and Scully after alien colonisation has taken place.
Comments:: What else can I say besides this is one extremely well-written fic? The setting for the fic switches between magic realism and surrealism, while writing with a poetic flair in nearly every sentence.
Synopsis: Painted across the barren and desolate reaches of Texas, the shadows of the Project put additional pressure on Scully and Mulder's already fragile relationship.
Comments: One of the most famous fanfiction epics in any fandom, ever. A bleak and difficult read in parts, but gratifying in its willingness to actually let Mulder and Scully suffer and work through the traumas inflicted on them by canon.
Synopsis: Set in S8, a newly-returned Mulder drives back across the US with Scully and their infant son.
Comments: A much, much more satisfying scenario than we actually got from this era of the show, balancing Mulder's uncertainties and the tension between him and Scully with their overwhelming love for one another and their tentative new start as a family.
