Lies and More Lies - Parts 4-7 by Vickie Moseley
This is a 'pre-episode/post-episode' piece. I have rewritten the season finale (or should I say 'prewritten' since I haven't seen it yet ;), tying up as many loose ends and staying as consistent as I could to what has come up during the sixth season. - S A MT UST/MSR Conspiracy/Mythology -PG-13

When I Fall in Love by Plausible Deniability
A one night stand has life-altering repercussions for young CSM. This is part of a series which began with "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes." You probably need to read at least "It's All in the Game" to get the most out of this story. Pre-XF, young CSM/Mrs. Mulder - R (language, sexual situations)

Some business, some pleasure; and another character makes an appearance in young CSM's life. This is part four of the "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes" series.
