April 2005

*Fear phobias and frustrations *


Your cup runneth over with various scrapes and difficulties our favorite FBI agents may encounter and have to use their wits and ingenuity to get over these fears phobias and frustrations. Plenty of scope for good writing here. Casefiles, MSR, MT , whatever you like in that loose theme margin.

 Use your imaginations for this one. It will be a lot of fun.



March 2005


Its a little bit A team, its a little bit Mcguyver, its a little bit crash and burn if Mulder is involved. Have fun putting him to sticky situations he has to summon up his ingenuity to claw himself out of crappy things and nice bloody life threatening stuff and mishaps. Oodles of scope for heroic Mulder getting out of trouble while suffering lots of bodily distress hehehe. Have fun. You know you want to!!!! Bring on the Scully comfort. Poor baby will need it!

Please check the forum's "ER-X" for participation!



Our rules of participation

You are invited to write a short story between 5K and 40K (txt format) before the 30th of each month. We allow some latitude in the size of the story, but don't write a 100K story either! The story will then be uploaded on this website. There will be links on the Mulder Refuge website to this page. 

The story has to be written and sent ONLY in attach, in TXT-format to mailto:muldersrefuge', before the 13th of each month. We will soon announce a list of themes three months beforehand, to give you plenty of time to write your story.

All the posting will be done on the website and on this forum anonymously with a standard disclaimer. You will also have to rate the story as you would do any other fanfiction. The story may not be posted anywhere else before the winner of that month is announced. Then you can post it to all archives you prefer. The winning story will be kept on this website for future reference.

We allow all genres, except for slash and "next gen" stories. Mulder's Refuge is a website that focuses on Mulder & Scully. Please bear that in mind.  NC-17 stories and Character Death stories are allowed, but please enclose this carefully in the disclaimer!

After the winner is announced, you may ask for feedback for your story on Mulder's Refuge. If you prefer not to discuss your story, please let us know.

Voting happens by email. As soon as the stories are uploaded, you have until the end of each month to send your top 3 of stories to
