Well, as sooooooooome of you may remember - my net handle is "Fox" spelled backwards, as in Fox Mulder from the X-Files. My first and longgggest slash pairing/fandom is the X-Files = Mulder/Skinner.
The very first slash fic I wrote was M/Sk - but it bit the big one when my disk was corrupted - ohh, eleven years or more ago. And I never had the heart to redo it. Of course, by then - I was off to LFN Slash, and then QAF (UK, US), then From Eroica With Love and OMCs in "Encompassed." But I never forgot my first slash pairing luv. And have always been on the look out for more and more stories featuring Fox and his Boss...lol. Which unfortunately have become few and far between, damn it!!!
Wellllll.... Then came the news that there was going to be a NEW ZINE!!!! Just for Mulder/Skinner fics!! I was jumping for joy, and figured - ok, I want to be involved. Somehow... (I'd tried to be in a zine before, writing my "From Eroica With Love" story, "Dorian In the Dark," - but the deadline got pushed up majorly (snicker, sorry - that was an "in" pun/joke) - and I didn't get to be in the zine. Poutttt....
But I got on the ball, despite a muse on strike, and wrote my first X-Files Fic!!! And yes, it's NC-17 (how could it not be coming from me???) I couldn't take over ten years of reading X-File Fics and then do my own fic, only to NOT have them have explicit hot sex, could I???
Annnnnyway - The X-File Zine is now AVAILABLE!!! Many many thanks to Jo B, who originated the zine idea and who truly put together a fantastic finished project!!! (Trust me, I just got my printed copy today and it is STUNNING - the artwork, paper quality and stories - all are a must have!!!)
The online version of "Beacon In The Night" is up here:http://www.mskd.com/beaconinthenight/bitn_fanzine.htm
And soon there will be print copy information for any and all interested in having the zine in their hot little hands. (I truly hope that means alot of you!!! The zine is amazing - as if I probably hadn't already mentioned that...lol.) BTW - if you're a Brokeback Mountain fan - I challenge you to read through the zine, and take a gander at the last piece of artwork by Sean Spencer!!! hehe...
Oh, my story is first! Only because I turned it in early - but hey, that means SEX!!! right off the bat, so yeyyyyy! lol... It's called, "The Necessity Of Now."
Each author's email addie it provided, so I strongly encourage you to do two things - 1) If you like a story, pretty please let the writer know!!! 2) Let Jo B know what you think of the zine!!! It might be JUST the thing to get more stories/zines in future (A Win-Win For All...)
And a personal thank you to wannabebrit
for playing betas for me!!!
