Ofrenda by Shahara Zade

A Love Song by adhokk7 Part 2 of 2
Deslea's rec: "An excellent post-Existence casefile/MSR. I wasn't fond of some of the plot twists in this one (three guesses which ones!) but it's a good read with strong narrative. I liked the incorporation of Season 7 and Season 8 plot and character elements - it's a story with a good sense of context within the wider X Files world, something often lacking in later-season casefiles. Worth a look."

Worth a look."

A Faithful Companion by bugs
Deslea's rec: "As bugs herself puts it, as much as the conclusion to 4D was a realistic one, I'm a romantic at heart. So I was really pleased to find a post-ep that was sweet but not saccharine; heartfelt yet without pretence or excess. A nice Dripper read."

Glass Menagerie by Karen
Deslea's rec: "I have a weakness for DRR anyway, but what I really like about this fic is the understated angst and affection between the protagonists. Both are palpable and real, but they pervade without being rammed down the reader's throat." DRR, spoilers to Existence, PG.

"...for one night, they felt no pain. No grief. No disappointment." Doggett/Reyes, pre-XF, R.

Johnny by Deslea R. Judd
"This was a game they had played for a long time. To see just how intimate they could be and still pretend that they weren't.

"She is surprised at the sound of her own voice, the wretchedness of her words." Existence post-ep, PG13, Krycek/Marita.

Hitchcock Blonde by Shahara Zade
Deslea's rec: "This is just plain funky. An XF/Once A Thief crossover sees Krycek, Marita, Monica Reyes, and Victor Mansfield caught in a bittersweet moment by the sea. The Reyes characterisation deserves special mention for its endearing authenticity." See also Mean Reds.
