I recently discovered two cute, playful, sexy, and nearly believable
stories about Mulder and Krycek: Alley
Trap and the sequel Blueberry
Season, by AnneZo. There's definitely a common theme in M/K that says
Krycek has always wanted Mulder, but Mulder has to be cajoled into admitting
his desire for Krycek. It's nearly canon, that's how often it shows up.
I happen to think it's more or less in character, because Mulder's so
repressed and so caught up in his anger and his quest that he hardly notices
other people.[Alley: XF,
nosex, humor. Blueberry: XF,
sex, angst, blueberries (duh!)]
Here are two Death-fics. That means a major character dies in the story.
Don't read them if you don't want to.
Unleaving by Nonie Rider is short, beautiful and sad, about Krycek
and Mulder. It's that time of year, where I live, so I went to the cemetery,
sat underneath a massive ash tree, and watched the bright yellow leaves
spiraling to the ground, singly and in clumps. The sky was a deep, thick
blue, and it was one of the loveliest things I've ever seen. Then I read
"Goldengrove Unleaving" again. I think that falling yellow leaves
will always remind me of this story. (If you want to know about my other,
inadvertent, mental Pavlovian response, ask me about using only one arm
to go to the bathroom.) [XF,
nosex, death, tragedy]
Corpus by Plausible Deniability is funny and sick, sick, SICK! I'm
not kidding, this story has been described as "dead puppy humor."
Mulder and Scully, no mention of Krycek at all, so it's not really slash.
I nearly laughed out loud in my cubicle at work, over this one. If I'd
been at home, I would have been guffawing. This is death not taken seriously.
