2016 Additions

In 2016, during the XF Reboot, I dug up three old fics in various stages of completion and finished them off. They appear below.

Dead Man Walking: 5700 words, Knowle/Shannon, M. They were facing together forever, and it was better than facing it alone.

Sweet Delusion: 1400 words, Krycek/Marita, M. Marita has her own ways of dealing with Alex's disappearance.

Coda: 530 words, PG, Krycek/Marita. They won't tell her you were trying to save the world, but that's okay. She knows.

XFVCU Virtual Series

XFVCU, which stood for X Files: VCU (Violent Crimes Unit), was a virtual series that I coordinated in 2003, picking up the story eighteen months after The Truth. A lot has happened - the planned colonisation has been exposed, the alien race appears to have withdrawn, and the entire period of the X Files history from 1990-2003 has been exposed as the surface layer of a deep cover operation to fight the conspiracy. The citizenry are reeling from the news, and hybrids and test subjects are objects of fear, curiosity, and legislative debate. Paranormal cases are on the rise while the conspiracy unravels.

Now, the team - including deep cover agents like Krycek - are left to pick up the pieces. Their work has legitimacy, but it also has the spotlight. They're still players in a game, but whose game is no longer clear. The compromises of the war have taken their toll, too. Just because people share a side, doesn't mean they agree.

The series ended after seven episodes due to a death in the family. However, each episode is a self-contained casefile that can be read on its own (ideally with an understanding of the universe as outlined in episode 1).

For the full collection of XFVCU stories, which include several of mine and some by others, see the archived XFVCU site. Note that the references to the forums should be ignored as the forum no longer exists.

8 September 2013: In Biophilia and Chameleon, Voldemort's complex and flawed relationships with his mother, his Horcruxes, and Bella are explored, while in One's Station In Life, Bella's father asks the Dark Lord to get her under control, and plays unwittingly into their hands.

6 July 2013: In Proxy, Lucius does the unthinkable to spare his wife, while Bellatrix and the Dark Lord are caught in a web of lies, manipulation, and their own twisted brand of love in The Kings and Queens of May, Into The Donacon, and Damnable.

27 February 2013: In Mark of Cain, Narcissa Malfoy learns a secret about her husband that turns the tables on their lifeless marriage, and in Garden of Memories, she and Lucius defend each other and their marriage from the Dark Lord, risking everything they've worked to save.

20 December 2012: In Witch Break A Vow, Astoria Greengrass learns that sometimes there are no good choices, only ones that contain the damage.

23 October 2012: In Silver Starlight and Golden Wine, Narcissa's wedding night is a journey of trust. It's a standalone moment in the Blue Vial universe, but it can be read on its own. Meanwhile, in Folie A Deux (Madness of the Two), Voldemort and Bellatrix lead each other deeper into madness.

14 October 2012: In Under Your Skin, a small piece of unashamed Hallowe'en fluff, seventeen-year-old Tonks flirts shamelessly with her Potions Professor. Snape gives as good as he gets. Also added Want You To Want Me, a standalone Sons of July missing scene, in which Tonks seduces a willing Lucius for her own ends - but both get more than they bargained for.

22 September 2012: In Of Vials Blue and Shades of Grey, Narcissa knows there is another woman, but learning who and why makes for hard choices to bring them all through. Narcissa POV on The Blue Vial. Also, in Spoken For, we meet the Pureblood children of Hogwarts whose marriages have already been arranged when they arrive.

8 September 2012: In The Blue Vial, Lucius offers Tonks a choice between an easy death and the means to endure the torture he has been instructed to inflict on her. The resulting revilement/sympathy between them will be both their comfort and their imprisonment for the rest of their lives. Also posting a major update to The Substitute (half as long again) and minor edits to Two Of A Kind: Yule Interlude.

12 June 2012: In The Substitute, Lucius and Tonks enter a marriage of convenience to facilitate Narcissa and Draco's escape, and facilitate her infiltration of the Death Eaters. It soon becomes a folie a deux - for them, and for Snape as well. Tonks is torn between who she is and who she pretends to be.

8 May 2012: In Sons of July, the arranged marriage and deep friendship between Lucius and Narcissa sets the scene for the Dark Lord's last stand. They and their private loves, spies Nymphadora and Severus, all have secrets, and sacrifices will be needed along the way. Meanwhile, in Awake, Narcissa draws on her every reserve to help her imprisoned husband hang on to his mind.

7 April 2012: In Kill To Be Kind, an AU battle scene set at Malfoy Manor, Lucius and Tonks debate the relative merits of loving and killing one another. Also, I've revived an old story, Between Worlds, which I took down at one time in response to fandom developments that no longer appear to be at issue. In this crackpot Chamber of Secrets missing scene, Moaning Myrtle meets a ghost who isn't quite dead yet. Non-explicit underage fumblings and humour ensue.

4 January 2012: In Two Of A Kind: A Yuletide Interlude, Andromeda comes to terms with her flight from her family of origin, against the backdrop of Nymphadora's and Lucius' growing attachment. Meanwhile, in Fair Fight, a humour SSHG piece, Snape is a reluctant war hero, and the witches come a-courting. To his bemusement, Hermione is one of them.

8 December 2011: In Part 4 of Two Of A Kind, Tonks allows herself to see who Remus really was, while the final chapter sees both Lucius and Tonks make their peace with their lost loves and face their future together.

15 October 2011: Part 3 of Two Of A Kind sees Harry Potter's Lucius torn between the wife he lost and the woman he loves now.

2 October 2011: A site overhaul, a new Harry Potter theme, and special pages for some of the other collections (especially TSCC, which is on the backburner but not forgotten).

1 October 2011: I've restored my translations page, and added a Chinese translation of I Enjoy You with thanks to Joanne. :)

26 September 2011: In the postwar ficlet I Enjoy You, Hermione uses a willing Snape to make Ron jealous, only to find she's happy right where she is. Meanwhile, Two of a Kind Part 1 and Part 2, an AU postwar novella, sees Lucius and Tonks widowed and finding their way through grief together. (Work in progress).

28 August 2011: In Vigil, Hermione takes a moment by a lonely grave, to reflect on the schoolgirl crush who became her hero.
