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. 😛

|Athene||In Corpore Sano||11019||"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|

|BrandyThatcher||Partners, Their Pasts, And The Long Push Forward||16434||Between 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.

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

|sunflowerseedsandscience||Early On Series||27001||The biggest clue, Scully thinks, as she lights one of the thick pillar candles on the dresser and begins to prepare for a bath, lies in|
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
of 10 stories set early on...
|Syntax6||Universal Invariants||82292||This 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|
