Why This Must Be Read: Penumbra is an amazing writer, and has penned several classics in X-Files fanfiction. Here she tackles a post-ep for "Field Day", with Scully and Mulder still affected by the hallucinogen from the episode, mildly telepathic, and coming to terms with their relationship with each other. Penumbra has a unique writing style, laced with dense, vivid imagery and intelligent, crisp dialogue. The language (as you might expect from a story about recovering from a trip) is interestingly disjointed and the sexual attraction just drips off the page.
