Disclaimer: Unfortunately no one except Sin and her
family belongs to me. Everyone else belongs to Chris Carter, 1013
Productions, and Fox. I promise to put them back when I'm done.
Sin looked around her apartment contentedly, making sure the Christmas
decorations were just right. For the last two months Fox Mulder and Alex
Krycek had been living with her, and she had never been happier. Despite a
certain degree of friction between Mulder's partner Scully and both of his
lovers, all of them managed to get along well enough not to force Mulder to
choose between them. Even if that did mean that Scully essentially ignored
Alex's existence. But Scully had put aside her animosity enough to salvage
her partnership with Mulder, making everyone happy. And soon Mulder, Alex
and Sin would celebrate their first Christmas together.
Alex was still trying to disentangle himself from the Consortium, hoping
to be able to bring some useful information with him, so despite having been
employed by ICIN since the day after he met Sin, he still had not actually
worked for the agency. Sin and Mulder were getting nervous, concerned for
his safety, so he had promised them that he would get out before Christmas,
whether he could get any information or not.
Sin glanced at the clock and headed for the door. She was supposed to
meet Mulder and Scully in 20 minutes for lunch, little though she was
looking forward to it. The two women rubbed each other the wrong way
although they tolerated one another for Mulder's sake.
"Think happy thoughts, Sin," she muttered to herself.
"Punching the sanctimonious bitch in the nose would make me happy! And
I swear I will the next time she snipes at Alex. Okay, none of that. Smile
and get along with her for Mulder. Ah hell, I know she cares about him, but
still..." Catching sight of herself in the mirror, Sin stopped talking
abruptly. Great, now she's got me talking to myself! She shook her
head in disgust and left.
Mulder and Scully were waiting at the restaurant when she got there, and
Scully rolled her eyes when Mulder stood to greet Sin with a kiss. She knew
she was being unfair, but the younger woman made her want to do violence.
And Scully was sure that she was somehow responsible for Alex Krycek's
presence in Mulder's life.
The two women exchanged sickly smiles, and Mulder wondered why he kept
trying to get them together. They obviously couldn't stand each other. He
supposed it was a compliment to him that they even tried. But many more of
these friendly little lunches and he'd have an ulcer. Both women noticed his
abstraction and reached out to lay a comforting hand over one of his. And
that was why Mulder couldn't give up on making them friends; they were both
very important to him in their own way, and although neither would admit it,
they had a lot in common.
After a strained meal that left all three of them wishing for some
Rolaids, they walked out to the parking lot together. Because they had had a
late lunch, they were among the last to leave, and the lot was nearly empty.
They stood beside Sin's car saying goodbye when something made her look up.
Her eyes widened in dismay, but before she could say a word, the silence was
broken by the soft sound of three silenced shots.
Alex Krycek was a very unhappy man. He hadn't seen either of his lovers
in over a week, he still couldn't find any irrefutable evidence of the
Consortium's activities, and now it seemed that someone was after Mulder.
There was an order out to bring him in, alive fortunately. But it made Alex
nervous, and his tension increased when he couldn't reach Mulder or Sin on
their cellphones. His day reached an all-time low when he gave in and tried
to call Scully only to find that she wasn't answering either.
No, things could still get worse, as Krycek discovered when he looked up
and saw Cancerman coming down the hall toward him. Shit, the perfect
opportunity to kill the sonofabitch, and I don't dare. Maybe I could still
get out of here alive? Nah, not a chance. Besides, Sin and Mulder would kill
for even thinking about it. Shit! He plastered a smirk on his face as
the walking smokestack stopped in front of him.
"Well, Alex, I see you've found your way back to the fold despite
the death of your last patron. Perhaps I should take you as my driver now?
We wouldn't want to waste your talents?" He blew smoke in Alex's face.
Please, God, if you're real, let me kill this bastard someday!
Alex gritted his teeth to keep from saying something he'd regret.
Seeing that Krycek wasn't going to rise to his bait, Cancerman continued
on his way, leaving Alex seething behind him.
It'd be so easy, just one bullet in the spine, nah, even crippled he'd
still make trouble. A bullet behind the ear, or maybe just break his neck. I
think I'd like to feel him die under my hands. Alex glared after the man
he desperately wanted to kill.
Before going too far, the smoker stopped and turned back to Alex. "I
don't suppose you've heard yet. You're going to get your hands on your
enemy. For a change you can hit Mulder instead of the other way
Alex's heart seemed to stop. "What do you mean?"
"I mean that one of our operatives has finally succeeded in
capturing the man. They're bringing him in now. And as an added bonus, they
have Agent Scully as well. Oh, and Mulder's girlfriend apparently," he
added as an afterthought.
Mulder! Sin! For a moment Alex wasn't sure whether he'd screamed
their names aloud or not. But since Cancerman was walking away unconcerned,
he must have managed to hold it in and act like his world wasn't shattering
Somehow Alex was going to get his lovers out of this place, or he'd die
"Oooohhh." Mulder regained consciousness to the sound of
moaning. And he recognized Sin's voice. Forcing his eyes open, Mulder sat
up, groaning himself at the stab of pain through his head. He wondered what
the hell they'd been shot with and decided a bullet would have felt a lot
"Sin?" His voice was weak, but Sin was only a few feet away.
She opened her eyes to slits, looking his way while rage rapidly replaced
pain in her face. But equally quickly she masked her reaction in case they
were being observed. It was very likely that their abductors had no idea who
she was, aside from being Mulder's girlfriend, and she would make use of
that if the opportunity arose.
"Tammy," she murmured.
Mulder's eyes narrowed as that brilliant brain of his rapidly sorted the
few available facts, and he realized that she intended to remain anonymous
if their captors didn't already know who she was. With the way his head was
throbbing, he actually looked forward to her teaching them their error. He
had a feeling that given the slightest opportunity, Sin would make their
abductors feel like London after the blitz.
Another faint moan drew their attention to Scully, who was trying to sit
up in the corner. Mulder staggered over to her.
"Hey, Scully, you okay? Tammy and I are fine, although we have the
world's worst headaches."
Scully looked at him blearily. "Tammy?"
"Yeah, Tammy. Did the drug affect your memory, Scully? Don't you
remember, you and I had lunch with Tammy, then we were drugged in the
parking lot." Mulder hoped his repetition of the name would get through
Scully frowned at her partner and nodded briefly. She didn't see the
point, but if Mulder wanted to call his female lover Tammy, she would go
along with him. Although Scully knew that the other woman was an ICIN agent,
no one had thought it necessary to explain just how deadly Sin was. She
suddenly stiffened, staring first at Mulder, then at herself.
"What happened to our clothes?" Scully's voice was rising.
Mulder stared, only then realizing that they were naked. "Obviously
our captors must have taken them." He shrugged. "It's not uncommon
as a way to break hostages' spirits by humiliating them and stripping away
their dignity." After living with Sin and Alex, it would take more than
nakedness to bother him. But he could see that Scully was really upset, not
surprisingly considering her Catholic upbringing. Unfortunately, there was
nothing he could do about it other than act like he didn't notice. He moved
back to Sin's side, wrapping an arm around her and pulling her against his
It was at that moment that their captors entered the room. Mulder glared
at Cancerman, holding Sin tightly while she cowered against him in seemingly
"Good afternoon, Agent Mulder. Despite repeated warnings, you have
chosen to continue interfering in matters that do not concern you. And you
have done so to the extent that it has become necessary to find out exactly
what you know . . . or think you know." He smirked through the haze of
smoke surrounding him.
Mulder glared. "What makes you think that I'll ever tell you
"You'll tell us what we want to know, Agent Mulder. Because if you
don't cooperate, these ladies will pay the price of your
Knowing that she could withstand whatever they dished out a lot better
than Scully could, Sin attempted to focus the smoking man's attention on
herself. She whimpered loudly, shrinking back and burying her face farther
into Mulder's shoulder.
"Which one do we start with, sir?"
Cancerman considered the two women carefully, taking note of Mulder's
protective hold on Sin and the fact that he'd left Scully across the room to
comfort the blonde. "Take this one," he said, indicating Sin.
"She'll be easier to break, and watching her should make Agent Scully
more amenable to persuading Mulder to cooperate."
Mulder snarled and swung at the men who pried Sin from his embrace, but
he was quickly restrained. He was furious with her for purposely putting
herself in danger to protect Scully. He didn't think he'd be able to stand
to see either of them hurt.
Scully moved across the room to her partner's side, putting a hand on his
arm comfortingly. She eyed the whimpering young woman with disgust,
wondering just how low ICIN's standards were. With Sin and Krycek as
examples, Scully was not favorably impressed.
Mulder watched with increasing agitation as Sin was pulled to the center
of the room and her wrists restrained by manacles that were lowered from the
ceiling. The chains were left short enough that she could just barely touch
her toes to the floor.
"Now, Agent Mulder, what did you see at the laboratory last
week?" the smoking man asked, referring to a visit Mulder had made to
an abandoned factory after receiving a tip that alien experimentation was
being done there.
When Mulder didn't immediately answer, Cancerman nodded to the goon
beside Sin, and the man punched her in the belly. Sin let out a cry of pain,
ignoring the growing rage in Mulder's face. If they were going to get out of
this alive, she had to make their captors dismiss her as a possible threat.
She'd make it up to Mulder later.
Scully tried to reason with the smoking man, pointing out that Mulder
couldn't possibly know anything damaging. If he did, he would have told them
to save his lover. Cancerman was unimpressed by Scully's logic, continuing
to have Sin beaten. In fact, he moved over to her to join in.
"Don't you touch her!" Mulder yelled. "I'll fucking kill
you if you touch her!" By now Mulder had completely forgotten that Sin
had set herself up to take this, and his only desire was to see the men
hurting her dead. He struggled against the grip two of the smoker's
underlings maintained on him, fighting to get to Sin. His struggles were
wild enough that the two men were forced to handcuff him to keep him under
Meanwhile, the smoker continued to ask Mulder questions and hit Sin every
time Mulder wouldn't or couldn't give him the answers he wanted. Her skin
was already mottled with bruises, she was developing a black eye, and when
she met Mulder's gaze for a split second while none of their captors could
intercept it, he was startled at the depth of the murderous rage he saw. The
beating wasn't making her submissive. Rather it was kindling a desire for
vengeance that was likely to be bloody when, not if, she got free. Mulder
finally realized that Sin was extremely dangerous when she wanted to be,
probably far more than even Alex could ever dream of being.
As if thinking his name had released the genie from his bottle, Alex
appeared in the doorway. His eyes regarded the three captives calmly. Only
Mulder or Sin would have recognized the fear in his eyes and the resolution
to make someone pay for this. Mulder also saw something else, something that
made him realize that he and Sin had better take good care of themselves.
Alex had a death wish, and he would make sure that he didn't have to survive
without them. It was so clear in his eyes that Mulder again wondered how it
had taken him so long to recognize Alex's love. Before he became totally
absorbed in his contemplation of his lover, the sound of another blow
striking Sin drew their attention.
"Krycek!" The venomous tone of Scully's voice made it clear
that she had only just noticed him and was not surprised to see him there.
Alex knew that he had to play his part if they were all going to get out of
this. Perhaps fortunately, the antagonism between him and Scully was quite
real and would serve to distract the smoker and his henchmen from any slips
Alex or Mulder might make.
"How lovely to see you again, Agent Scully. And might I say how
sweetly feminine you look without your usual armor?" Alex wasn't above
getting a few digs in at the petite woman's expense.
Scully blushed profusely, her face matching her hair at the reminder of
her nudity, but to her credit she refused to back down. She stayed at
Mulder's side despite her strong desire to hide herself.
Krycek glanced away dismissively, meeting the smoker's gaze. "You
mentioned an opportunity to get my own back. I decided that it might be fun.
I certainly won't mind seeing Mulder get what's coming to him."
The smoker laughed. "You still haven't forgiven him for dragging you
to Russia a few years ago, have you? Still blaming him for nearly having
your arm cut off, Alex? I hear the scars are something to see."
Krycek refused to answer, instead focussing on Sin. "Who's the
"This is Agent Mulder's girlfriend. He doesn't seem too concerned
with sparing her pain though." Cancerman poked at the seemingly barely
conscious woman contemptuously. He turned to one of his hirelings. "Let
her down and bring Agent Scully over here next. We'll see if Mulder is quite
as blasť about her pain."
The goon released Sin from the manacles, leaving her to crumple to the
floor at the smoking man's feet. He prodded her, then turned his attention
to Scully who was being dragged across the room.
The instant all attention was turned away from her, Sin exploded to her
feet, breaking the neck of one thug even as she broke Cancerman's leg with a
kick. Still in the same motion she pulled a gun from the holster her first
victim wore, shooting the one by Mulder and the one dragging Scully over.
Quick to recover from the surprise of Sin's move, Alex shot the remaining
goon himself, grinning madly into the smoker's surprised face. Approximately
ten seconds after Sin had been dropped to the floor, the four guards were
dead, and the smoking man was lying on the floor immobilized.
Scully stared in shock at the woman she had considered a lightweight and
whom she had expected to have to rescue. The most disturbing part was that
Sin's expression had never changed while she killed the men. Krycek had
shown an unholy pleasure at killing the man who'd helped hurt Sin and at
demonstrating his changed allegiance, but aside from a cold gleam in her
eyes, Sin had been utterly emotionless. Scully was determined to find out
just exactly who she was and how she got like that, but some other time.
"Krycek?" The smoker was stunned. He'd always been aware of
Krycek's attraction to Mulder, had used it to control the young man at times
in fact, but he'd never expected Krycek to have the strength of will to turn
on the Consortium. Mulder must have even more of a hold on his pet assassin
than anyone had ever anticipated.
Alex simply looked down at their nemesis. This man was directly or
indirectly responsible for every rotten thing that had happened to each of
them over the last few years, from the order to kill Mulder's father, to
Scully's abduction and subsequent cancer, from Mulder's various attempts to
beat Krycek to death to Krycek's very existence as a Consortium assassin. He
held a gun in his hand and thought about killing the twisted old man, but
somehow that didn't seem enough. No, better to make him live with yet
another failure, something he should be used to when Mulder was involved
even peripherally. Krycek swore he'd find a way to hurt the smoker, find out
what he held dear and destroy it. "Remember this, and when your life
comes crashing down around you, remember that I did it to you. Stay away
from us, or I swear I'll destroy you."
Sin walked over and placed a hand on Alex's arm. She'd taken a T-shirt
from one of the bodies and pulled it on. Short as she was, it looked like a
mini-dress on her. Scully had done the same, and Mulder was pulling on a
pair of pants that he'd stripped from the body closest in size to him. Each
of them had taken a gun as well, and Sin had been pleased to find that one
of the men had carried a pair of knives too. "Come on, Alex, let's get
out of here."
"Well, well, so you share the two of them, do you, Alex? Neither of
them willing to give up each other for you? Too bad. But I suppose your
well-honed talents at fucking make them keep you around. Do you take orders
from both of them?"
Alex froze at the hurtful words, something deep inside him screaming that
it was true; he was just a fucktoy for the other two. No one could possibly
Cancerman drew breath to continue his tirade now that he could see he had
hit a sore spot, but he suddenly stopped. For the first time, he had met
Sin's eyes, and what he saw there scared him. The man who ruined lives,
dealt with aliens and taunted assassins had finally met someone who he knew
would destroy him without a second thought if it became more convenient.
Sin smiled coldly. "Remember me. And know that if you come near Alex
or Mulder again, I will personally hunt you down."
"Who are you that I should care about you, girl?" Cancerman
attempted to project an air of bravado.
"My name is Sin." The coldness in her eyes seemed to increase
at his gasp. "I see you've heard of me. For your sake, I hope we don't
meet again." With that she dismissed him utterly as being of as little
concern as an irritating insect. But as she turned away, she suddenly spun
back, seizing his head and slamming it against the concrete floor to knock
him out. Meeting Mulder's eyes, she shrugged. "Couldn't have him
raising an alarm if we want to get out of here, now could we?"
The four of them worked their way out of the installation with Alex in
the lead. Sin's fury at the situation showed in the fact that everyone they
encountered died. Even Alex started looking at her askance, but every time
they saw her bruises, the words died on their lips. She of all of them had a
right to want a little of her own back. Besides which, Alex mused, it would
take the Consortium weeks to get things back to normal after the destruction
Sin was leaving in her wake. She, and he, took every opportunity to destroy
computers and records, and she seemed to have an unerring instinct for what
would hurt them the most.
Scully watched in continued amazement, beginning to realize that Sin
wasn't just some weak flower using Mulder. Whatever the dynamic between the
three lovers, it was becoming clear that they were each essential to the
Mulder and Scully made their way back to FBI headquarters after a quick
stop at Sin's apartment to get some clothes and drop off Alex and Sin,
Scully borrowing some things from Sin. After explaining the situation to AD
Skinner who barely glanced away from his fierce concentration on Scully, the
two agents were given a few days off, which would take them to the Christmas
holidays. Mulder followed Scully home to make sure she got there safely and
left after she assured him that she would be fine and promised to see him at
the Bureau Christmas party in a few days time.
Instead of going back to Sin's - their - apartment where his two lovers
waited, Mulder drove to his old place. He was glad he'd decided not to
sublet it until the three of them could find a place of their own, finding
it easier to keep it than store all of his belongings. It gave him a refuge
now when he couldn't face Sin after the pain she suffered because of him.
After a quick stop at a liquor store, Mulder was soon letting himself
through the door of apartment 42 again. Although it had only been a few
weeks since he'd moved into Sin's apartment with her and Alex, the place
already had that dusty, deserted air unique to uninhabited residences.
Mulder looked around, trying to find a spot to settle that didn't have
memories of making love with one or both of them. He laughed bitterly when
he realized that there was no such place and simply pulled the dust cloth
off the couch before dropping onto it with his bottle of Jack Daniels firmly
in hand. He started drinking quickly, hoping it would dull the pain.
After Mulder left for the office, Alex brought Sin into the bathroom
where they sank into the jacuzzi, Sin tightly wrapped in Alex's arms. She
could feel him shaking and knew that it was sinking in that he could have
lost them today. Of them all, she, the person who had actually been beaten,
was the least affected by it. In her line of work it had happened before,
and she was certain it would happen again. But no one who loved her had ever
been forced to watch helplessly before, and she hoped that it never happened
again. She knew Mulder would blame himself as he always did, and Alex...
Well, Alex was a lot more emotionally fragile than most people realized. She
nestled into Alex's embrace, content to be held for once.
Alex clung to the woman in his arms, the woman he had so nearly lost that
day along with the man he loved. It didn't matter that Sin could easily take
care of herself, a fact she had amply demonstrated. He felt a soul-deep
coldness at the thought that he could so easily lose the only two people who
had ever loved him. He spared a moment's thought to wonder when these two
had become so important to him, but it didn't really matter. He knew there
was nothing he wouldn't do to protect them. That used to scare him, before
Sin, because he didn't know if Mulder could accept some of the things Alex
was perfectly willing to do, but now he knew that Sin would talk Mulder
around. She understood him. She had many of the same wild traits he did, but
she tempered them with a fierce sense of justice. Alex was nearly perfectly
amoral, and he realized it. Any morality he displayed was almost certainly a
reflection of Mulder's attitudes, which Alex tried to follow whenever it
wouldn't endanger them. It made it easier for Mulder to ignore the rest.
Eventually they both relaxed, able to put the day's events behind them,
and climbed out of the jacuzzi. Only then did they realize that Mulder had
been gone for hours and should have been back long since. Fear flashed
across Alex's face even though he thought it would be a long time before the
Consortium dared moved directly against Mulder again. Sin, however, just
sighed and shook her head.
"I knew we shouldn't have let him go alone."
"Scully was with him. Surely nothing else could have happened to
Sin realized that Alex was worried. "No, no. I'm sorry, I didn't
mean to worry you. I just meant that I should have realized that Mulder
would start blaming himself for what happened and decide to stay away from
us for our own protection. I was afraid of this happening when he decided to
keep his apartment for a while. But at least this way we know where to find
him. It's easier than checking every motel in the DC area." She started
dressing. "Come on, get dressed, Alex. It's time to go retrieve our
Mulder had fallen asleep on the couch, passed out actually, and he never
heard Alex and Sin let themselves in. Of course, with the amount of alcohol
in his system and the incredible volume of his snores, it was doubtful that
he'd have noticed if an entire brass band paraded through the living room.
Sin and Alex stood beside the sofa, staring down at their drunken lover,
occasionally wincing at an especially loud snore. Speaking loudly to be
heard over Mulder, Alex asked, "So what do we do now? He's not in any
shape to talk rationally."
"Let's get him into the bed, and we'll worry about talking in the
"He's not going to be capable of speech with the head he'll
have," Alex grinned. "And can't we leave him on the couch? With
the racket he's making, we'll never get any sleep."
"I'd agree with you, but I don't want to take the chance of him
waking up and taking off in the middle of the night. In bed between the two
of us, he's not going anywhere without us knowing about it."
Alex sighed and began to wrestle Mulder to his feet. Mulder grunted and
tried to swat him away, but Alex persevered till Mulder was up and stumbling
toward the bedroom. Thinking of the waterbed in there, Alex muttered,
"Throw up on me tonight and you're going to be sleeping on the couch
for the rest of your life." Despite his less than sympathetic words, it
was Alex who undressed Mulder and got him under the covers before sliding in
By the time Sin joined them after locking up, the two men were tangled
together and fast asleep. She climbed in behind Mulder and spooned up
against him, vaguely sensing Alex's hand pulling her closer before she
joined them in slumber.
Mulder woke up the next morning to the sensation of his lovers
surrounding him Where did they come from?, an uncomfortably full
bladder, and a head that felt like it was going to explode momentarily. Dear
Christ, I want to die! It would have to feel better. He extracted
himself from the tangle of limbs and staggered to the bathroom to take care
of the one problem he could do something about. He also swallowed a handful
of aspirins while he was in there. He made his way back to the bed and stood
staring at its occupants.
"Get back in this bed before I have to get up and haul you
back" came Alex's sleep-blurred voice. "You won't like it if I
have to do that."
Mulder frowned momentarily, weighing the merits of making a run for it to
protect them from him. The fact that he was naked and the two green glares
focusing on him convinced him that this was not one of his better ideas.
Drilling more holes in his head might go over better. He climbed back into
bed, fetching up behind Sin so she was in the middle.
"So," Sin began, "care to explain what happened to you
last night, Mulder? Why the hell are we here after having to come looking
for you instead of at home where we belong?"
"Look, you got hurt yesterday because of me, Sin. You would never
have been in that situation if you weren't involved with me. It's not fair
of me to endanger you like that, and I was trying to work up the strength to
stay away from you."
"Mulder, you are an idiot!" That silenced him. "I got hurt
yesterday - and very minor injuries they are, I might add! - because I chose
to draw their attention. Yes, Mulder, I know, you don't have to say it, they
were your enemies. But you seem to forget that I have a lot of my
own! There are going to be times when there are attacks on us, and we never
will be able to figure out which one of the three of us was the primary
target. That's the reality. But you know what? I love you both, and I'm not
willing to give you up on the off chance that someone comes after us, and
I'm not going to let you do it either. I know I'm being selfish; I probably
have more enemies than both of you put together, but I think we have
something pretty special here. So I'd really appreciate if both of you would
stop being so down on yourselves, and start enjoying us. It's the Christmas
season, so get in the fucking holiday mood already!" Sin had worked
herself into a fine temper by the time she was done.
Both men stared at her, their lips twitching, faintly amused as men so
often are by a woman's temper. Unlike many men, however, they had the sense
to realize that showing their amusement would be a very bad idea. Not to
mention that she had a good point. Alex did wonder how he got to be one of
the bad guys, but he didn't intend to ask. He started singing Christmas
Mulder looked at him like he'd gone mad, but Sin burst into laughter.
Alex always did have a unique way with apologies. She rolled into his arms,
kissing him and silencing the singing. The kiss deepened, both of them eager
to prove to themselves that they were still together and alive after
everything that happened the day before.
Alex ran his hand the length of Sin's back, pulling her tightly against
him and enjoying the feel of Mulder's chest on the back of his hand when he
did so. He moved his hand around to her front, cupping her breast, kneading
the flesh while he continued to kiss her.
Sin arched into Alex's grasp, begging without words for more. She gasped
when Alex caught a nipple between his fingers and tugged gently. At her cry
he pinched harder, loving the breathy cries she emitted at his touch. He
leaned down, biting at her throat, marking her again beside the fading marks
already there. He realized with satisfaction that unless she was planning to
wear a turtleneck to the Christmas party, the marks would be visible to
everyone. He licked his way down her chest, nipping as he went, till he
reached the other nipple, catching it between his teeth while he continued
to pinch the other one.
Sin moaned in pleasure as Alex caressed her breasts, arching against him
and throwing one leg over his hip. Behind her, nearly forgotten in her focus
on what Alex was doing to her, Mulder pressed against her, his rigid
erection sliding into her easily in her open position as wet as she was from
She moaned Mulder's name, pressing back against him. Alex leaned up on
one arm to watch them for a moment before continuing to work his way down
Sin's body. He probed her navel with his tongue, causing her to flinch
reflexively, then moved downward again. Reaching his goal, he pulled back,
resting her leg over his shoulder while he watched Mulder stroke in and out
of her, seeing Mulder's cock gleam with her wetness every time it appeared.
Alex leaned forward, running his tongue over the accessible portion of
Mulder's erection, tasting Sin on him along with his own musk.
Mulder groaned at the sensation, his fingers digging into Sin's hip as he
started moving faster, thrusting harder. He felt like he was truly making
love to both of them at once.
Alex switched his attention to Sin, flicking the tip of his tongue over
her clitoris. Sin cried out at the feeling, and so did Mulder as she
clenched down on him. Alex licked harder, lapping up the moisture and
catching a hint of Mulder's flavor as well. He sucked the bud of flesh into
his mouth, lightly biting down it till she screamed with pleasure. Between
Mulder inside her and Alex eating her, Sin was caught in haze of pleasure,
but she managed to gasp out Alex's name.
Alex ignored her, continuing his ministrations, to her undoubted
pleasure, but Sin was determined. "Alex, please, mmmm, god! Oh, yes,
please, Aaaleex! Please turn around...ooohhh, I want to taste you too.
Alex hadn't stopped what he was doing, but he liked Sin's idea. Moving
carefully so he never took his mouth away from her, he shifted position
until his cock was positioned at her lips.
Sin opened her mouth and took Alex in, licking at the head of his cock
briefly before drawing it deep into her throat. She was too far gone in
pleasure herself to prolong it. She sucked strongly, wanting to taste Alex,
to feel him come in her mouth.
Mulder opened his eyes and watched Alex's cock disappear into Sin's
mouth. He could still feel an occasional flick of Alex's tongue on his own
cock, and the pleasure was almost enough to overload his nerves. He loved
it. Wanting to give Alex the same pleasure, he reached over Sin's shoulder
and cupped Alex's balls in his hand. He rolled them gently, drawing a moan
The vibrations of Alex's moan set Sin off, and her cries made him come
while her internal muscles clenching on Mulder brought him off
simultaneously. They all cried out together, bodies arching and clenching,
fingers clutching. They continued to twist together for a few moments more,
milking every last bit of pleasure before relaxing.
At his lovers' urging, Alex twisted around so his head rested on the
pillows beside theirs, all three cuddling together. Sin shifted around so
she ended up on Mulder's other side, and they dozed off with both Alex's and
Sin's heads pillowed on Mulder's chest. Mulder smiled down at the light and
dark heads, dropped a kiss on each and went back to sleep too.
Two days later, Mulder was looking forward to going to the Bureau
Christmas party for the first time in years. He was ready to leave long
before it was time, and he kept checking on Alex and Sin. The other two were
seriously considering shooting him just to get some peace. Finally Alex had
"What is with you and this party, Mulder? You usually hate these
things. Why are you so anxious to be the first to arrive this year?"
Mulder grinned sheepishly. "Sorry, I didn't mean to drive you nuts.
It's just - well, this year I won't be Spooky Mulder standing in a corner
alone, having a few drinks, letting people stare and talk, then leaving
alone. This year the two most gorgeous people in the place are going to be
with me, and the only talking is going to be wondering how I got so
After that speech, Sin and Alex lost their annoyance, giving Mulder a
quick kiss before going to finish getting ready. Sin sighed, eyeing the
marks on her throat that were clearly visible above the low neckline of her
dress. Since there was nothing she could do about them, she vowed to keep a
close eye on the guys tonight. She was willing to bet that after a look at
this, the female sharks at the party would be circling her men. But she
intended to make sure that they didn't get too close.
As soon as she was ready, she walked out to the living room where Alex
and Mulder waited. The men grinned when they saw that Sin wore her hair
swept to one side, showing off the earring that matched theirs. It seemed
that she intended to make a statement tonight. They shared a drink, then
left for the party, both Alex and Sin intending to demonstrate to everyone
there just what they had overlooked in Mulder.
"I had the Lone Gunmen run a trace on you," Scully announced to
Sin when the two of them found themselves alone.
"I know," Sin smiled. "The guys are good, but one of my
cousins is the best. I told her what to let them find. I assume you
won't be passing this information on my family around." It was not a
Scully smiled. She was beginning to understand the younger woman. She had
questioned the relative ease with which the guys had found the information
on the Longs, Sin's family. It seemed clear to her, and to the Lone Gunmen,
that they had been allowed to access the data. "So tell me who you
"You saw the files. You already knew my name, age, occupation."
"Tell me how a 23-year-old woman, even one with the wealth and
family connections you possess, becomes synonymous with death in terrorist
circles. And tell me why you're involved with Mulder."
"You don't ask the easy ones, do you? The family connections are
responsible for my choice of profession. With our wealth, kidnapping
attempts are a very real danger, so we are trained in self-defense from a
very early age. The first attempt on me came when I was five. Obviously I
survived. I have...an aptitude for killing. No one takes me seriously when
they look at me, so I can do things that most people can't."
"As for Mulder," she continued, "I'm here because much to
my surprise, I fell in love with him. I need him now. Saying he's
part of me sounds like something out of a romance novel and isn't quite
accurate either. It's more that I feel a peace and joy when I'm with him
that I've never felt before. If that wasn't true, I'd never have gotten
involved with him knowing that he was in love with Alex. Okay, I didn't know
it was Alex at the time, but still. I just got lucky that Alex also is
someone I can love. They're so different, but they balance each other. And
they're both so hurt." She turned a warning look on Scully. "I
won't let anyone hurt either of them anymore."
Scully met the look with a friendly smile. "I know. And I've felt
that way about Mulder for a long time. He's a lot easier to care about than
either of my brothers."
The two women smiled at each other, thinking that maybe they would be
able to learn to get along.
Agent Spender glared at the door he'd seen Mulder disappear through a few
minutes earlier. It was an empty office, and he couldn't imagine what the
other man could be doing in there. Spender had heard rumors that Mulder was
here with two lovers tonight, but he didn't credit them. It was
beyond belief. Spooky Mulder was probably stealing office supplies for his
personal use in there. Deciding to catch the older agent in the act, Spender
crept over to the door and silently slipped inside, closing the door again
When his eyes adjusted to the dim light, Spender sucked in a breath of
shock. He was at a right angle to the desk in the office, which gave him a
perfect view of the action. A man was bent over the desk, his slacks down
around his ankles while Spooky Mulder reamed his ass. And judging by the
sounds the other guy was making, Mulder was pretty good at it. As Spender
watched the stranger reared back, pushing Mulder deeper into him, clawing at
the desk desperately. Mulder laughed, a hoarse, sexy sound Spender noted
"What's wrong, love?" Mulder rasped. "Do you want more? Do
you want me to touch you?" He continued pumping into the guy's ass as
The man moaned and thrust back harder. He groaned and twisted under his
lover, incidentally ending up with his face visible to Spender. Spender
stared in shock at the most beautiful man he'd ever seen, a man he
recognized from pictures as Alex Krycek. He was even better in person.
Gazing at that beautiful face contorted in pleasure, Spender unconsciously
dropped his hand to his own throbbing erection, stroking it through his
pants as he watched. He imagined thrusting into that perfect ass, taking
him, making Krycek cry out with pleasure as he was doing for Mulder. His
hand sped up, only to stop in horrified shock when he heard a voice behind
"Enjoying the show?"
Spender stood as if frozen as Mulder and Krycek looked over at the sound
of the feminine voice, focusing on Spender. Mulder smirked when his gaze
reached Spender's hand, still clutching his obvious erection.
"Like what you see, Jeffy? Or let me guess, you want what I
have?" Mulder grinned, pulling Alex up to stand in front of him with
his cock still buried deep in Alex's ass. He stroked Alex's weeping cock,
putting on a show for Spender. "You weren't happy with having the
X-files for a while? Although they did give them back to me. Guess you
didn't do too well, huh Jeffy? Think you could do better with Alex? Do you
think you could satisfy him?" He laughed. "Hell, do you think you
could even get him to let you touch him?" All the while, Mulder was
stroking Alex's cock, and Alex was twisting and squirming against him
Alex knew how much it had hurt Mulder when Spender and Fowley were given
the X-files, and he didn't mind Mulder using him to make Spender jealous. He
was actually kind of enjoying it. He'd always had a bit of an exhibitionist
At Mulder's last words, Spender involuntarily started to reach for
Krycek. Pleasure-glazed green eyes focused on him with alarming rapidity.
"Touch me and I'll rip your fucking arm off," Alex snarled.
Somehow even the fact that the threat was coming from a man being fucked by
Mulder did not lessen its impact. Spender had no doubt that Krycek would
kill him if he dared to touch him.
Suddenly the woman who had spoken and drawn the men's attention to
Spender stepped around him and dropped to her knees in front of Krycek. She
started blowing him, her hands on Mulder's ass pulling both men forward to
drive Krycek further into her mouth. Krycek's hands clenched in her blonde
hair, and even Mulder removed a hand from Krycek's hip to tangle it in the
woman's hair. After both men came, Mulder pulled the woman to her feet in
his arms, kissing her and obviously tasting Krycek in her mouth. Meanwhile
both of them held Krycek to them with one arm around him.
When the three turned toward Spender after fixing their clothes, he
realized that he had come in his pants. He had no idea how he would get out
of the office without embarrassing himself. He waited for them to say
something, but all three walked past as if he was invisible, totally
ignoring him as they left.
Scully bumped into Skinner as she circled the room looking for Mulder.
She wanted to wish him a merry Christmas before she left. She bounced off
the AD, only his quick grab saving her from falling ignominiously. Looking
up to thank him for his rescue, a smile spread across Scully's face.
Following her gaze, Skinner also smiled when he found himself looking at
a sprig of mistletoe. "Well, Agent Scully, it seems we have no choice
but to follow tradition."
But Scully held up a hand to stop him. When Skinner looked at her in
surprise, she grinned. "I don't kiss anyone who won't use my first
Skinner grinned back. "All right, Dana, but my name is Walter."
Dana was still smiling when Walter's lips claimed hers in what was meant
to be a light kiss between friends. Both were surprised when heat instantly
kindled, and the kiss continued. Finally, what seemed like an eternity
later, they separated, staring at each other, ignoring the applause and
catcalls. Dana lowered her eyes, blushing slightly, and Walter smiled down
On Christmas morning, Alex, Mulder and Sin woke up, as usual entwined
together. After greeting the day in their usual way, they got up, pulling on
robes to go out to the living room and exchange presents.
After the usual gifts of clothing, especially from Sin and Alex to
Mulder, jewelry, perfume and a few more esoteric things exchanged between
Sin and Alex that Mulder didn't recognize and wasn't sure he wanted to, Sin
pulled out an envelope addressed to both men. Handing it to Mulder who
happened to be closest to her, she looked incredibly nervous. Mulder and
Alex exchanged baffled glances as Mulder tore the envelope open.
Three keys dropped out into his hand.
Both men stared at it blankly then turned that confusion in Sin's
direction. "Keys? Are we allowed to know what they open?" Alex
Sin seemed to be nerving herself up. "It's three copies of the key
to the front door of our new house. I bought some land in Alexandria, asked
one of my cousins to design the perfect house for us and had some other
cousins construct it."
"Who's the architect?" Mulder asked curiously, wondering if
he'd recognize the name. He blinked in surprise when Sin told them that
Tiger Lowell, an internationally known architect, had designed their home.
He was beginning to wonder just how large and famous her family was. He knew
they would love the house; Tiger was so sought-after because she tailored
her buildings to the occupants.
"So when do we get to see this marvel?" Alex wanted to know.
"I thought we could go out after breakfast. I asked Mich - another
cousin," she explained at their questioning glance, "to make sure
that there was food in the fridge, a few dishes and a bed with sheets, etc.
I didn't want to get any furniture yet because I wanted us to buy it
together. Aside from what you already have, of course," she hastened to
"What about your stuff?" Mulder asked.
"Oh, I'll just leave it here. I think my sister Ryl wanted a place
in DC, so she'll probably take the apartment."
"Your sister?" Mulder was startled. "Do you realize that
you've just told us more about your family in the last five minutes than in
all the time we've known you?"
"I know, I'm sorry. It's a hard habit to break. I'm so used to not
telling anyone about my family. Bear with me, okay? I'm trying. Besides, my
family can be best described as huge. I didn't want to scare you off. So
let's work into this gradually, okay? Ryl is my sister; we're triplets.
You'll meet her and Ara eventually."
"Ryl? Ara? Sin? Does anyone have a normal name like Ann or Mary or
"Like you have a lot of room to talk, Fox. It's actually TamSin,
TamAra, and AmaRyllis. Is that okay with you?" She
sounded a little irritated.
"Sorry." Mulder was startled.
"No, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have snapped at you. I've just been so
nervous about what you guys would think about me buying a house for all of
"Why? We said we were going to?" Alex was confused.
"Exactly. We were going to buy a house, not me. But I wanted
to get something that was for us, to show that we're really together, that
this is forever." Sin's insecurities were showing again. Knowing that
Mulder and Alex had been perfectly happy together without her, she sometimes
wondered if they really loved her, wanted her with them.
The guys knew what Sin was afraid of, and they also knew that only time
would solve the problem. Maybe 50 years from now when she still woke up with
them, she'd accept that they all belonged together.
A couple of hours later the three of them pulled up to a fence around a
densely wooded lot. Sin punched in a code on the keypad mounted on her
dashboard and the gates swung open. She pulled through and waited just
inside until the fence was again sealed. Only then did she continue up the
tree-lined drive. Once away from the fence, Alex and Mulder could see that
they were not actually in a forest. Many trees had been planted around the
perimeter to ensure their privacy. After a couple of minutes, they came to
the front of a beautiful redwood home set in a glade.
Mulder and Alex stared in amazement at the house that immediately said
"home" to them. They couldn't wait to explore it. For the next
hour or so, they all wandered from room to room. Sin hadn't seen it either;
she had wanted to wait so they could all see it for the first time together.
Finally, they ended up in the living room where Mich had gone a little
farther and put up a Christmas tree and laid logs in the fireplace ready to
light. The three of the settled on the floor in front of the fire, the only
illumination coming from the flickering flames and the many miniature lights
on the tree.
Without seeming to consult, Mulder and Sin pounced on Alex in unison,
pushing him flat on the floor and holding his wrists. Alex lay stretched out
before them, watching while Sin pushed up his sweater so she could stroke
the naked skin of his chest. She kneaded the muscles, massaging him till he
was practically purring. Alex relaxed completely, absolutely secure in his
faith that these two people would never hurt him. Sin replaced her hands
with her mouth, licking his chest, tugging gently on his chest hair with her
teeth, slowing nipping her way across the breadth of him until she arrived
at one coppery nipple which she gently flicked with the tip of her tongue.
Alex moaned, wanting more, but it felt so good. Sin nibbled gently on the
nipple, drawing it into her mouth for an instant, then releasing it to pass
her tongue over it in a long swipe. Alex tried to arch up, but Mulder still
held him down. Sin reached over to scratch delicately at the other nipple
while she bit down harder on the one in her mouth. This time Alex did arch
off the floor.
With her free hand, Sin reached down and unfastened Alex's belt and
jeans, reaching inside to stroke his already rigid cock. She petted him
lightly, knowing he wanted a harder touch but having fun teasing him. Then
she released his nipples, ignoring his moan of protest. She slithered down
his body, rubbing against him the whole way till she could pull his boots
off, rapidly followed by his socks and jeans. Alex was left wearing nothing
but the sweater twisted under his arms.
"If we let you up to take your sweater off, will you lie back down
in the exact same position once it's off?"
Alex could only nod. At this point, knowing that his lovers intended to
focus on him this time, he was already beyond speech. He knew they were
going to blow his mind, and he looked forward to every second of it.
Mulder released him, expecting Alex to sit up, but he simply raised his
shoulders enough to pull the sweater over his head, then lay back down,
placing his wrists back into Mulder's hands.
"Don't move," Mulder warned, standing up to strip his own
clothes off as Sin had already done while he watched Alex. Once naked, he
dropped back down to kneel above Alex's head, holding his wrists again.
Sin paused for a moment to enjoy the picture they made, muscles gilded by
firelight and all hers. She watched Alex twisting in Mulder's grip, his eyes
closed, long lashes feathering his cheeks and an expression of pure pleasure
on his face.
She began to give Alex a tongue bath, starting at his feet and slowly,
very slowly working her way up. Alex whimpered with pleasure, writhing
wantonly, tossing his head against Mulder's thighs.
"Please, Fox, come here, please," he begged, pressing his head
against the erection he could feel. "Please let me taste you, I need to
taste you, Fox."
Fox laughed wickedly, shifting so that his erection was just out of
Alex's reach. The younger man could see it, smell it, even taste the beads
of pre-cum that dripped from it into his seeking mouth.
"Fox!" It was nearly a scream, and Mulder took pity on his
lover. He moved a little closer, letting Alex taste the tip of his cock, run
his tongue over the head, draw the sensitive head inside his mouth where he
suckled it happily.
Meanwhile Sin had licked Alex's legs, bypassing his dripping cock to work
her way along his torso and arms, then back down to his pelvic bone. Finally
she slid between his legs and began to lick his cock and balls. Short
strokes, long strokes, Alex never knew what to expect as she drew him to the
edge and kept him there.
Mulder still wasn't letting Alex take as much of his cock as he wanted,
but both of them were enjoying Alex's efforts. Alex was nearly standing on
his head in his attempts to get closer to Mulder and take in more of him.
Suddenly Mulder pulled out of Alex's mouth, dragged him up to a sitting
position, then pushed him forward on top of Sin.
Expecting Mulder's move, Sin was perfectly positioned, and Alex just had
to shift slightly to drive home inside her. He moaned at the sensation,
feeling her grip him, starting to move in and out.
Mulder pressed up against Alex's back, sliding his arms around him to toy
with his nipples. "Pull her up onto your thighs, Alex, and sit
up," he whispered in his ear. Alex moaned and did as he was told,
pulling Sin tightly against him as he did so. Rather than wrapping her legs
around his waist, Sin swung them up to rest on Alex's shoulders, feeling him
drive ever deeper inside her.
Mulder moved away for an instant, coming back and pressing slicked
fingers into Alex. Alex moaned, starting to lean forward to make it easier,
but Mulder pulled him back upright. "Careful, you'll hurt Sin."
Alex stared blankly for an instant before an apologetic expression passed
over his face. Sin reached up one hand, letting Alex suck the fingers into
his mouth, whimpering as he shifted inside her. She was so close.
In the meantime, Mulder had stretched Alex and was pressing the head of
his cock against him. Alex moaned, desperate to feel Fox inside him but
unable to help him at all. Finally, finally, Fox slid inside him, gliding in
until his balls were pressed against Alex.
Alex whimpered in pleasure, filled and filling, overwhelmed by pleasure.
He pushed back, feeling Mulder press deeper inside him, then pushed forward
into Sin. But Mulder stopped him, holding him still while he and Sin
adjusted their movements until they were each thrusting against him at the
same time and withdrawing together. When Mulder pinched Alex's nipples and
bit down on the side of his neck, Alex could take no more. He exploded,
screaming in pleasure, crushing Sin against him and clenching down on
Mulder, drawing them with him into ecstasy.
They were frozen in pleasure for long moments before slowing relaxing to
the floor, separating yet entwined together, slowly settling into a
three-way embrace, Alex still in the middle. They dozed off in front of the
fire, spending their first night in their new home.
