I can't be the only person here who has wondered why no one has ever written an alternative universe for this fandom. They're commonplace in every other RP fandom I've read fic in. So when this opportunity arose, I thought I should put it out there.



The community is [community profile] unconventionalcourtship. The rules are simple. You can sign up for any date between March 15 and April 14. You can say which summary/pairing you're going with, but you don't have to. You don't need a Dreamwidth to play—just sign up with OpenID. All fics must be over 1000 words long.

You must use a modified Mills & Boon and/or Harlequin summary. They have some suggestions at the community but there are literally thousands. You can write more than one fic if you want. You can also combine prompts, if you like.

Replace the names (and pronouns if necessary) with the names (and pronouns) of the pairing of your choice. Any and all fandoms and pairings are welcome in this fest.

Just to give you an idea of the possibilities, here is the prompt combination I decided to write.

Just when Evie Cabrera Dr. David Duchovny thinks his blind date can't get any worse, his insipid dinner companion pulls out a gun. Suddenly Evie David is drawn into the middle of a terrorist plot. On the brink of a scientific breakthrough, Dr. Hannah Zachary Duchovny was now running on borrowed time. He had knowledge that dangerous men would kill to possess. His only protection is Jude Curran, Gillian Anderson, an agent with Tactical Executive Security. He desperately needed to trust someone, and Dr Agent Tyler Anderson was it. But Evie David senses that Jude Gillian is keeping more secrets than she's revealing. With his life in chaos, can he trust the secret agent?


I'm genderswapping this to make it more fun for me to write, but I think a more traditional romance would be a kick to read, too. There is no deadline to sign up and plenty of time left for writing.
 
 
Here's an excellent story that was written for Yuletide 2012 by the wonderful bayloriffic. Set during the filming of "I Want to Believe," this is her first fic for this fandom, but surely not her last.

Summary:

David thought playing Mulder again would be easy; he did spend almost a decade doing it after all. But the entire time he’s been back in Vancouver -- only two weeks, but it feels like so much longer -- he’s felt off-kilter and at loose ends. It’s not until Gillian’s there that he feels like himself again.

I wrote this for bayloriffic for Yuletide. In all of the years I have participated, I had the most fun writing her prompt.

" My absolute favorites here would be: secretly married (FAVORITE CELEBRITY RUMOR OF ALL TIME) or forced to share a bed (Maybe there was a shortage of hotel rooms when they were filming XF2? Maybe they were on location sometime during the series and they had to bunk together in a trailer? Idk, idk.) It doesn’t even matter: TROPES."

She asked for tropes. ♥
