Abbie's X-Files Fan Fiction
An Explanation: Abbie's History with The X-Files and fan fiction
Stories listed roughly in chronological order of original completion
(i.e., when I wrote them)
- "Heart's Desire"
Teleplay format. A string of possible alien abductions takes Mulder and
Scully to rural western Virginia, where they uncover an apparent
experiment in the psychology of happiness.
Teleplay format. Phoebe Green sweeps into Mulder's and Scully's lives again, bringing a case of a British pedophile who has taken to killing young male prostitutes--but without leaving any trace of his methods, and somehow always managing to avoid detection.
- "The Real Thing"
Teleplay format. Scully invites Mulder to go to a wedding with her, making them both start to think
about what they might be missing. Utter self-indulgence on the part of the author.
Teleplay format. The first episode in my Gillian-Anderson-pregnancy arc (my version of what the second-season premiere might have been, imagined before the second season aired). Scully is abducted by operatives of the shadow-government, and implanted with a human-alien hybrid fetus. Never posted; not in Gossamer archive.
Teleplay format. The second episode in my Gillian-Anderson-pregnancy arc. Scully's alien "doctor" reaches out to Mulder in his dreams, while the FBI assigns him to a team pursuing a serial killer who appears to be re-enacting Aztec human sacrifices. Never posted; not in Gossamer archive.
Teleplay format. The third episode in my Gillian-Anderson-pregnancy arc. Scully is returned home after the birth of her implanted hybrid child, with painful guarantees of her silence concerning what she has experienced. Never posted; not in Gossamer archive.
- "Stepping Out"
Teleplay format. An old friend of Scully's dropped out of the FBI Academy to
sign up for top-secret military medical research. Now his
mysterious supervisor doesn't care how many volunteers have to
die in the process, and Scully's old friend is willing to perform
one final assignment in order to get out--just as our heroes
tentatively embark on a first date (feel free to roll your eyes).
- "Out of Reach"
Teleplay format. A string of prostitute murders and an old friend of Mulder's from his early days in the
FBI lead Scully and Mulder to an unusual group home in Milwaukee, where the foster children
have interesting gifts.
- "One Blood"
Teleplay format. A psychiatrist who works with abductees is found dead in
an apparent suicide, and his secrets turn out to be linked with
those of Scully's new boyfriend.
Story format. Skinner sends Scully and Mulder to a paranormal
research convention, just as Mulder's nightmares take him to
the breaking point.
- "Penetrating the Shadows"
Story format. Mulder's mother has an accident while preparing to share
with him some significant photographs and papers that his father
had saved, and Mulder calls Scully to Martha's Vineyard to help
him face the Truth.
My Correspondence with R. W. Goodwin
Co-Executive Producer of The X-Files, 1993-1996; Executive Producer, 1996-1998
I wrote my first fan letter to Mr. Goodwin in December of 1994; to my astonishment, he wrote me back, and encouraged me (or seemed to encourage--I didn't need much) to write him again. I did so on a regular basis, and he wrote me back twice more (ending in August, 1995). The poor man: I didn't stop writing him until November of 1996.
