When I was desperate to get my mind off what CC did to the loves of my life, I knew I needed some carefree MSR from before all the crap was heaped on them. I knew just the trope to turn to. This is the list that saved what little remaining sanity I have.
I’ve tried to make it a multi purpose list. It has a lot of smut, particularly first time ‘we’re naked we may as well’ smut, and some high level UST and some that cut off right at the good spot. I’ve tried to categorise them accordingly in an extra tags column.
These are predominently stories where they usually intend to swim naked, I’m sure I have more where they end up that way, but I’ll save those for another list.
So here’s my not-a-medical-doctor prescription to cure you of Chris Carter induced melancholy and help you remember that you love these beautiful characters no matter what he does.
This one has one special fic that I’ll probably only offer for a limited time as it’s not available on the internet and I’m really bad at remembering to check my emails. It’s usually better to bug me on tumblr. You just have to promise not to put it online anywhere.
@ = Undercover UST
# = UST/ATTHS
& = 1st Time Smut
? = Beats me
