(XF) = The
Animal I Wanted by Ladyluck: It's Mulder and Scully's job to hide
R: I can't
say enough how much I LOVE this story. I don't think I've read an
X-Files story that has Alex and Mulder's characters down so perfectly.
It was just so epic emotionally. Mulder, Alex, and even Scully grew so
much throughout the whole story, that it seemed so real, their trials
and tribulations and everything. Mulder/Krycek *****+
End of the Cold War by Kadru: The love-scene in this story made me
wish that I was a man with a foreskin, just so I could have Mulder
diddle it like Alex's. That love scene will go in my permanent top 5,
for sure. I was really drooling over the imagery in the story alone,
though. I mean, that scene with Alex in the snow.... pure poetry (it
kinda reminded me of Cowboy Bebop: The Movie only with snow instead of
psychedelic, glowing, golden butterflies). There were countless others.
Mulder/Krycek *****+ (FAV)
for the Axe to Fall (Axe
I & Axe II)by
Tarlan: Someone's been experimenting on Alex.
R: I really
loved this story. I just wish that there were more focus on Alex's
powers. I'm a bit fanatical about powers of any kind. Mulder/Krycek ****
(XF) Wild Justice
by MJ Lee: "I know that not everyone will agree with the ending, but
after reading rapefics, something struck me as rather odd. Too many of
them, no matter who raped who, ended up with the rapist and the rapee
picking out curtain patterns." --MJ Lee
R: I wanted
an ending where Mulder had to face what he had done and live with the
consequences.' I TOTALLY agree with the author on this. The story had
me literally on the edge of my seat. Mulder/Krycek *****+
Retribution *****+ (FAV)
series by Grey: Mulder is
the object of obsession for a stalker. Skinner/Mulder, OMC/Mulder ****½
Story 1: Consent
Story 2: Bound and Determined
by Sugar Rush: Mulder is in desperate need of the information that Alex
R: Wow. I
don't think that I've read a story were Mulder has had sex with Krycek
for information yet. You'd think that stories with that premise would
be abundant, but nooooo. Anyway, this story was fantastic.
Becoming Alex + all of it's sequels by Zoe Takashi and Louise Wu:
The story of Alex Krycek from boy to assasin.
R: This story and all of it's sequels are my favorite X-files stories.
I really love this story. Skinner/Alex, Alex/OMCs *****+ (FAV)
The Lateness of the Hour by Cody Nelson: I really like this story.
There were just so many emotions boiling beneath the surface. I think
Scully must have noticed something. And Dmitri...ah, he was just
toooooo adorable. I would have taken him home with ME. I was hoping to
see Mulder...ahem...receive some of Alex's lovin'. Mulder+Krycek ***½
Story by Mort: In
this world, men are dainty little things. at least, that's what all of
the women want to believe. Skinner/Krycek(Alexin), Skinner/Mulder ****½
(XF) Long and
Winding Road (I
by Kassandra: Krycek rescues Mulder from an alien ship, and they are
soon on the run, the three of them. Krycek/Mulder MPREG ****
(XF) Ghosts 1 by torch: I
really love the depth that is in this story. This is yet another side
of Mulder and Krycek that I have yet to see in any other story. Keep up
the excellent work. Krycek/Mulder *****+
(XF) Ghosts 2: Lovers
R: I like seeing things from Mulder's prospective just as much as
Krycek's, which surprises me, because I didn't think that I would like
seeing things from his perspective anyway. There was one phrase that I
laughed out loud at; "Scully, I have a bump the size of an Egg McMuffin
on my head,...." I didn't even get to read the rest of the sentence
before I burst out laughing. Seriously. My eyes were burning. And -and-
get this! I love, and I mean LOVE the movie Beautiful Thing. I became,
and still am, obsessed with Cass Elliot because of that movie. Can you
tell I'm rambling? Mulder/Krycek *****+
(XF) Str8 by Mik: Mulder
and Alex are forced to work together on a case. Krycek/Mulder ****½
(XF) Private Dancer I
Mulder let's an aquaintance drag him into an exotic dancing
establishment. R: "There was a brief tinkling sound as buttons flew
everywhere...." I don't even finish the last part of that sentence.
That sums up the sexiest part of this story for me. I think it's
because Mulder was letting go some of his control that made it so hot.
I don't really see stories where Mulder is hot, but when he's hot, he's
HAWT! XD Mulder/Krycek ***** (FAV)
Sequel: Private Dancer II:
One Night Only ***** (FAV)
and Fury by Dr
Ruthless: I don't recal the darn plot. BAH! Still, five it a
chance, if you will. R: I love how to-the-point this story was. I can
really relate to Krycek. I just have to find my own Mulder and then
things would be peachy. Krycek/Mulder ***½
(XF) Journey's End
by Courtney Gray:
Something isn't quite right. R: S'all I'm sayin'. Mulder/Krycek *****
Poetic Series by Scribe: In this story where nearly every chapter
coincides with a poem or nursery rhyme, Alex is wanting.
R: I don't like poetry as much as I should, since I write the stuff.
miraculously, I loved everything that was in here. I've been re-reading
the Poetic Series (in order this time), and I can't believe how much
detail is in this story. And, I like the twist involving Skinner and
Alex. Oh, and the scene at the bar was effin' awesome. The bartender
was hilarious. Krycek/Mulder *****+(FAV)
Impossible: Jaws of the Jaguar by Scribe: Mulder's services are
needed for an undercover mission. Ethan Hunt/Mulder (Crossover with
by Hiro: This story was really great. The detail that was put into
every section had me riveted. I have to say that I'm a real detail
whore. Oh, and the sex on the car... *Nods* Good. VERY good.
(XF) Names by Mona
Ramsey: '"Mulder, by the time that we're done with this relationship,
we're both probably going to be in his-and-his wheelchairs. I'll be
half-blind, you'll be half-deaf, and neither of us will know what the
hell is going on. And we'll still be humping each other, even if
nothing comes of it.""That's so romantic, I think I'm going to cry."' R: This author is
hilarious. Krycek/Mulder, Skinner/Scully *****
by Viridian5: Most people try to convey Alex as some sort of
misunderstood assassin who has a beanie baby for a heart, and that just
doesn't make sense. This story does, and in so many ways. I enjoyed the
list, too. Is it bad that most of those things apply to me on a
not-so-good day? Krycek/Mulder ****½
(XF) The Best Lies by
Cody Nelson: Alex has other emotions besides anger and sarcasm (Is that
an emotion? Meh....).
R: He's real
in here. A real guy whose made some bad choices and wants to make them
right, who has a real love for Mulder and not just an obsession.
Hallelujah! Mulder/Krycek *****
(XF) Mad Dogs by Sleeps With
Coyotes: Alex swoops in with his cool-ass mutha-fuckin' car, and save
Mulder's fucking life, all while being the sexiest fuckin' thing I've
ever fuckin read. FUCK YEAH! XD R: Can you tell I'm excited?! I don't
think that I've seen Alex Krycek being so...damned...COOL! Seriously,
though, the kind of cool that makes you tingle you-know-where. The love
scene was awesome. The fact that Alex had to hold back some unforeseen
aggression directed towards Mulder/the demons in his own psyche was way
past poetic. I am now obsessed with that song, too. Krycek/Mulder *****+
(XF) Mad Dogs 2- Phoenix in
the Snow by Sleeps With Coyotes: Now we've got some mutha-fuckin'
emotional shit goin' on. Fuck yeah to that, too!
R: The need
that Alex shows for Mulder, and the acceptance that Mulder has for him
is just...I can't even explain it. Mulder might not fully understand
what the hell is going on in Alex's head, but he is okay with the
possibility of never knowing everything. Sure, he does want to know,
but he knows that Alex might not want to know himself, so he lets it
be. Gah, I wish I were Mulder! I'd even take the beating just to be
with Alex. Krycek/Mulder *****+
(XF) Mad Dogs 3- Reprieve
by Sleeps With Coyotes: And the fuckin' and lovin' continues.
R: I was
worried for a second that all of the spark that made Alex who he was in
this story was sapped right out of him, but I was pleasantly surprised
that he still had it. I'd like to think that he's just showing a part
of himself and that part hasn't gone far. He's kind of like me in that
aspect, or at least I like to think so. Krycek/Mulder *****+
(XF) Green Eyed Monster
Alex and Mulder deal with jealousy. Mulder/Krycek ****
Chemistry (Book 1,
Book 2, and Book 3) by Louise Wu:
R: I don't think that I've ever seen Alex described like that before.
He was so human. And, maybe I'm giving myself too much credit here, but
he reminds me of me. Mulder/Krycek *****
(XF) Il Traviato by Cody
Nelson: Alex is not only what he seems. Mulder/Krycek *****+
(XF) Flesh by
Leather Alex: Skinner is a twisted man.
R: I was
fighting for so long not to find this hot, but I didn't quite succeed.
Skinner raping and torturing Alex and not REALLY feeling any remorse
for it was something I thought that I would never see. Skinner/Krycek **
(XF) The Places
That Scare You (Pt. 2,
3) by Rose Campion: Mulder rescues Doggett, and together, with,
help, they deal with what's been done to him. Mulder/Doggett MPREG
by Mort: Alex is no
longer human, and Skinner is surprised that he's having a hard time
R: I cried while reading this. Skinner/Krycek *****+
(Two Years Later) by Mort:
(May 23, 2007) So, yeah. It's 2 years after. R: I love Alex's
mannerisms in this story. If I had a friend like that, I would hang
around him all the time, if only to see he and Walter screw each other
silly. I'm not sure that I like Mulder, sadly. Skinner/Krycek ****
(XF) What's In A
Dream? by Lashala: Was I high on insomnia when I wrote this rec?
I've forgotten what this story is about. I dunno....Still, read this.
If I recced it, it must be good. Mulder/Krycek *****
(XF) Too Blunt An
Instrument by Rose Campion: (May, 26, 2007) Doggett needs to be
more careful about what he wishes for. Mulder/Doggett MPREG *****+ (FAV)
(XF) Two Voices
by Bette St. Cloud: (May 27, 2007) Krycek and Skinner become
2) by Sleeps
With Coyotes: (May 27, 2007) People are being turned into mindless
puppets, and Mulder and Scully try to find the puppetmaster.
Men of Honor Rachel Lee Arlington: (May 29, 2007) Mulder learns the
unsettling truth about Krycek. Mulder/Krycek, OMC/Krycek ***½
Next Part: The
Moment of Truth by Phyre
Things Fall Apart by Rose Campion: (May 31, 2007) Sequel to Midnight
Train to Georgia (which you should also check out), this story
deals with Mulder's interaction with Doggett's family after they've
R: I love
meet-the-family stories. Especially when the family overcomes some of
their own biases. There was just so much emotion in here, that I felt
myself getting choke up and biting my nails at times. And the sex was
tastefully done, but there was still enough 'mmph' to satisfy me, if
you know what I mean. Mulder and Doggett are fast becoming one of my
favorite couples thanks to this author. Doggett/Mulder *****+
(XF) Ice Storm
by Rose Campion: (June 1, 2007) I don't recall exactly what this story
is about, but if it's by Rose, you can bet it's GOOOOD. R: I really
liked this story. I wish that you would have elaborated on their daily
lives more, but I get that this is a short story, so I'll bear it.
Doggett/Mulder (I think) ***½
(XF) The Alex
Krycek Affair by Rose Campion: (June 1, 2007) Based on the movie,
"The Thomas Crown Affair". Alex plays Thomas Crown.
R: I love the intense romance and intrigue in this story. I didn't
anticipate that it [the intense romance and intrigue] would be such a
turn on? Krycek/Mulder ****½ (FAV)(A sentimental favorite)
by Ladyhawk and Amatia: (June 1, 2007) Relationships aren't always the
easiest things to get right.
mean REALLY. The awkwardness of the relationship is something I don't
ever think that I’ve seen in an X-Files story. I think that people seem
to think that Skinner is going to be some kind of raging bull sex god,
but he's just as vulnerable as Mulder is, if not more. The first sex
scene, I swear, my eyes must have nearly popped out of their eye
sockets. I was shocked at just how raw it was. Very nicely done!
(XF) The Adversary by
25, 2007) The Consortium finally get's it's hands on Mulder. He is
trained to their liking.
R: The first
thing I have to say is that I was nearly scared shitless when I read
that huge warning at the beginning of the story. It wasn't nearly as
gruesome as I thought it was going to be.
P.S. Two days
after I read this story, I got teary-eyed over Laurence. How sick is
that? Skinner/Mulder, OMC/Mulder *****+
by Jo B: (June 29, 2007) There's something more than just love that's
holding Mulder and Doggett together.
and Mulder's relationship was something that I haven't quite seen
before. It was refreshing. Mulder/Doggett ****
Justice 2: Divine Retribution (1 & 2) by MJ Lee: (November 8,
2007) After the events of the first story, things get even more sordid.
R: I just thought of the perfect song for this fic. "Shadow Boxer" by
Fiona Apple. I think that this fits Alex pretty well. I was listening
to her CD over and over again, when the lyrics of this song hit me over
the head with a clue-by-four. Another one of her songs, "Carrion" fits
the whole theme of the story. Krycek/Skinner *****+ (FAV)
(XF) Measure of
Devotion by MJ Lee: (November 12, 2007) Skinner comes into
possession of an old enemy. Mulder/Krycek *****+ (Mainly for
(XF) It Had to Be You
by Rose Campion: (Read with other R.C. fics) This was immensely
enjoyable. Doggett coming into contact with a bacterial love-potion No.
9 with Mulder along for the ride could have gone wrong in so many ways,
but this was smoldering (or, should I say "S'Muldering"), and funny.
(XF) Dry Heat
(Part I, Part II, Part III) by
frogdoggie: (January 19, 2008) Post colonization. Skinner is on a quest
to find the people important to him. If he happens to find himself out
THERE, then so be it.
R: This story
is very descriptive, and I could find myself SEEING exactly what was
going on. The OCs are well thought out; there's nothing worse than
faceless, monotone OCs. The love/sex scenes are Grade-A. All I shall
say is "jockstrap". Also, I find it eerie that I just bought and
watched the X-Files movie for the first time in years, and I then I
ended up reading this story that was based on the movie as opposed to
the series. The truth is really out there, man.... ( 0)_( 0)
by Amirin: (January 19, 2008) Mulder's inability to see the colors red
and green make things difficult. R: This story is short, comparatively,
but it is greatly entertaining. I was riveted to the very end.
Mulder/Krycek (I think) ****
(XF) The Weaknesses
Series by Viridian5: (January 21, 2008) During his time spying on
Mulder for the Consortium, Krycek learns something about Mulder that
he'd rather not know. He's not sure it's something he wishes to reveal
to his employers.
vignettes are really worth reading. Usually, I DESPISE drabbles,
vignettes, and all things of that sort, because I see them as author’s
avenue of dumping their crappy, half-thought-through stories on me, but
the vignettes are really good. Mulder/Krycek, Mulder/Mulder ****½
All Alone Together
(XF) World's Child
by Xanthe: (February
21, 2008) William, Mulder and Scully's son, narrates his life from
gifted child to world savior. Very well written (like I would expect
anything less from this wonderful author!). Skinner/Mulder *****+ (FAV)
(XF) The Gift of an
Enemy by Sylvia: (May 01, 2008) Mulder is given a certain
green-eyed assasin as a gift by an alien looking to strike a deal.
(XF) Echo Lane
by Louise Wu: (May 2, 2008) Mulder sees what life he could have had.
R: Asphyxiation!Sex and a young, hung Krycek in a Spring Break porno.
Krycek/Mulder AU ****½
(XF) Not Your
Typical Fairytale Ending (Part 1
and Part 2)
by Anonymous Bosch: (May 2, 2008) Skinner is called to help Mulder by
Gibson Price. Skinner realizes how affected Mulder really is by the
events of his life.
R: The only
downside to this story is that the sex isn't described. Normally, that
wouldn't be so irksome if that's what the author prefers, but this
author alludes to sex so much that it become annoying when love scenes
are cut short before they even begin. Still, the concepts in here are
very good. I never would have thought of some of the things that
involve Mulder in here. Skinner/Mulder ****½
