Welcome a special section at KTF, called "The Return".  I was toying with the idea to put a page of Mulder return stories up on KTF when a member of one of discussion lists commented on how there were few Mulder/Scully reunion scenes in fic.  That she (and others) have been having a hard time picturing how Mulder will be returned in season 8 and are afraid of what TPTB are going to do with it come February (myself included).  As a result, a challenge was posed on IWTB.  "Write the perfect reunion or return fic, any rating, any length, however you envision it."  Quite a few people participated and it really boosted my spirits reading all of the different Mulder/Scully reunion scenarios. 

Not only did I want to house the stories from that challenge here, I would like to extend that challenge to anyone who would like to share how they envision Mulder's return.  I will also accept any previous stories you have written, as long as it revolves around Mulder's return from his abduction and/or M&S reunion.  Let's bring our boy home! 

Please note: Material clearly marked with an NC-17 rating is meant for readers 18 years of age and older.  Please adhere to this if you are underage.  The author and webmistress takes no responsibility for those who ignore said warning. 

If you enjoy reading any of these stories, please let the author know by sending them feedback, it takes only a moment of your time and encourages them to continue the craft.  It's real easy to do to, all you need to do is click on the authors name and write.
