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. 😛

AtheneIn Corpore Sano11019"Scully?" His voice was serious. "I guess I'm confused. You ask me to confide in you, tell you details about me and my health, but you're closed-off about sharing any issues you have. I'm not
a doctor, but I did study psychology, and I can spot a double standard."

BrandyThatcherPartners, Their Pasts, And The Long Push Forward16434Between these two crap cases, getting bitched at by Kersh, being on the verge of losing his job and dragging Scully down with him, and the appearance of this psycho Ethan guy, this could have been one of the worst weeks of his entire life. So how was it then that when everything was going so wrong in his life, he could be so completely happy?R
Caroline OIt's A Mulderful Life3114"You've an over developed sense of melodrama and a scorching case of food poisoning." - Mulder finds out from his Guardian Angel what life would be like without him.
This is a sequel of sorts to "Clarity", where Mulder meets his Guardian Angel.  It's not necessary to read the first part (but I don't mind if you do!). Apologies to Frank Capra! They're both at the link for you. 🙂

travel, parallel universes, and wormholes. Back in the day, he'd been a regular G-man with a hot partner, a hazy job description, and a plan to
thwart an alien invasion. Then the world ended. Scully vanished. And none of his X-files offered any guidance on romance in a time of pleated pants and
shoulder pads.

her reaction to Ethan's proposal. When he'd dropped to his knee, her initial reaction had not been one of joy, or even a thought that she might be ready for this one day, maybe soon, even if she
wasn't quite there yet. No, her mental reaction had been a complete and unequivocal *Oh, shit.* A series

Syntax6Universal Invariants82292This is an AU story in which I play fast and loose with the first season. While I'm just as glad that Ethan got eliminated from the actual show (I don't think he would have added much on the screen) I thought it would be fun to play out the relationship here as Scully gets dragged deeper and deeper into the X-Files.N
