MSR Fic List: Jealous Scully

I love a jealous Scully (and a jealous Mulder for that matter – some of these stories have a bit of both).  Scully will be the last one to admit she’s acting jealous or territorial, but it can be difficult for her to hide it from other people.

This is a list of fics in my always-expanding fanfic library that I’ve tagged as Scully jealousy.  I’ve also made this a combined first-times list by marking stories where they get it on for the first time with a ¹.

Here you’ll find lots of Scullyangst, a bit of Drunk!Scully, some two-can-play-at-this-game!Scully, and a personal favourite, I’ve-had-enough-of-Mulder’s-bullshit!Scully.

MSR Fic List: Ethan Fics

I’m quite happy that Scully’s boyfriend from the pilot, Ethan Minette, remained on the cutting room floor, but he makes for some interesting fanfic.  If you haven’t seen the deleted scenes from the pilot episode, I’m sure they’re on youtube.  A nicer person would give you a link, but I’m a barely functioning person, nice is too much of a stretch.

This is a list of all the Ethan fics I have tagged in my library.  I try to only tag fics where Ethan gets more than a passing mention, but in some he’s more in the background.  There are quite a few series, which I’ve combined in the list, but Ethan may not be present in all stories in each series, you’ll have to work that out for yourself if it’s that important to you. 😛
