25 First Times: Arcadia

I have a lot of undercover fics so I’ve sorted them into a few separate lists.  This first one is a first time list for the episode Arcadia.  I have a few more that need URLs found or where I can’t remember whether or not they were first times, so I’ll do another list of various Arcadia smut.  I have another specialised undercover list, then more general undercover smut, and then maybe other leftover undercover fics.  I’ll give you a little break between some of them so you don’t get undercovered out.

Arcadia is generally an episode for angsty smut, being the first episode filmed after One Son.  Unfortunately it was pushed back after Agua Mala and Monday for technical reasons, causing Scully to come across as a bit snarky for no real reason, when in context, being their first case after One Son, she’s being a lot nicer than I’d be. 🙂  There are also a few PWPs interspersed with the angst.

This is another adults only list – rated R to NC-17/M to E.  The M’s can contain either R or NC-17 fics so you’ll have to read the header of the fic to make sure it’s suitable if you’re under 18. 

As usual, Gossamer links go to their search page.  Copy the 5-digit author ID if you want to do a quick search for the author’s fics, otherwise you can search by Author or Title.  This is to keep those nasty search engine spiders from getting to the precious gossamer web.

Fic List: The Field Where I Died

One of the wonderful things about this fandom is the willingness to correct perceived wrongs.  The Field Where I Died is an episode that had one of those responses.  How could they possibly expect us to believe that Mulder and Scully’s souls haven’t been intimately joined since the beginning of time?

The good thing about this list is that despite there being around 100 stories, it’s a very fast easy list to do as the majority can be found on the four linked pages below.  

  • The Cutting Room Floor –  50+ stories
  • Beyond 44:52 – 7 Stories 
  • Gossamer Spoilers Page – 80+ Stories.  These may not all be post-eps, they’re just stories that reference TFWID as being referenced.  I don’t want to link to the actual story page due to the google indexing issue, so the link will take you to the post ep index.  Just go down and select The Field Where I Died (season 4 episode 5).
  • Archive of Our Own TFWID tag 

After all that, there’s only one fic that isn’t on any of those pages, so I won’t even bother with a table.  

  • Anne Haynes – Greater Meed, from her Sonnet Series, (can be read individually)

Fic List: 4×20 Small Potatoes

Because I have so many of these I was going to rec some.  I really can’t choose though, they’re all fantastic, except that one that made me squirm.  But that’s possibly just me.

In addition to this list, the Cutting Room Floor has a big collection of Pre/Mid/Post-eps for this episode, and although i haven’t read them all there are some prominent early XF fanfic author names to choose from, many of whom are now published authors.

AnneHaynesLone Dreams3402This is a SONNET Story, post Small Potatoes and contains spoilers. I think that this episode, which I
ADORED, fits better in the 3rd Season... so, if you will, letÂ’s go back to 1996 and a basement office in the J. Edgar Hoover building in Washington, D.C.
ChaneenWTwice upon a Time22375Something was wrong.  Mulder knew it even before he opened his eyes, slowly waking up to the warmth of the sunlight streaming in through the living room window. That
seemed normal enough, as did the soft leather of the couch beneath him.
Still, he felt uneasy. He knew by now to trust his gut when he sensed that things were off, and all of his senses were screaming at him right now.

case again.]
