Why This Must Be Read: Oh... you have to go read these stories now, because they're hosted on Geocities. Hooray, they are hosted elsewhere, so the link above works! (Thanks to wendelah1 for the tip!) Also, because they're fantastic. Hiraeth sets Mulder and Scully back in North Wales in 1215, Paracelsus sets them in the Georgia low country during the Civil War, and A Moment in the Sun in New York in the mid-1950s. And it works. The stories are all rich and detailed and feel so accurate and perfect. I go back and read them again and again. If historical AU isn't your thing, but angst is, poke around some of the other stories and you should find something that'll brighten your day (The Darkest Hour, especially).
