The Gift of an Enemy
A new alien race appears on the block, this one aiming to make a deal with Mulder for information. To show that they mean business, they bring a gift to the table: Alex Krycek, pre-possessed by an alien for all of Mulder's questioning needs. Yeah, you can imagine how well that goes over. Turns out, though, that Krycek has a deep-seated fear of alien possession (tragically so, considering some nearby intergalactic bathroom stall clearly has 'Looking for a good time? Check out the body on Alex Krycek! (Usually found on Earth.)' scrawled on the side). This leads to a temporary alliance wherein Krycek agrees to tell the truth and not escape and Mulder keeps the alien possessions down to a minimum.

They proceed to have the most grand, elaborate adventure ever seen in fanfic, galavanting all over the desert (and beyond!), bucking social and religious conventions, and getting caught up in a war or two. I'd tell you more, but I'm afraid I'd spoil you. Suffice to say that this is written well enough that it could be published, except for the vast amounts of gay sex and the fact that it's sort of based on Sports Night characters.

No Refunds or Exchanges by astolat (NC-17)
Rodney McKay is stationed at a mostly safe and, apparently, not too classified Atlantis and is in desperate need of a maid. Unfortunately, any and all support personnel are immediately sucked up by the severely understaffed labs, so Rodney goes for the obvious second choice: mail-order bride. You can see why I like this story so much. Also? I bet you can guess exactly who the 'bride' turns out to be.
