Our presenter for "Best Romance" recently burst onto the M/K scene with her first
stories, "Do You Love" and "The Traveler". She's written several other stories since then,
including "The Three S's", and "Spinning", an M/K fairy tale. She's also a finalist in the
"Best Poem" category.
Ahh, the M/K romance story. Full of yearning
looks, tender smiles, most probably there’s
cuddling and kisses involved... the world of the
M/K romance is a wonderful place. Mulder and
Krycek are generally at their best, their most
passionate, their sweetest. A well-written
romance is like a long, luxurious bubble bath
with chocolates and your favorite (possibly
alcoholic) beverage. Marvelous, and irresistible.
Here are some of the best M/K romances written in
2000; they range from two veteran lovers
comforting each other through emotional hardship,
to Mulder and Krycek just beginning to start a
deep relationship, to the celebration of a very
romantic date in a decidedly Mulderian
fashion... altogether, each story carries in its own
way the flag of romance, while being unique.
Admission IX: Recovering by Aries
"Did I wake you?"
The soft, husky answer flowed across Fox's nerves
like warm honey, and he gravitated toward the
younger man, reaching out to touch his face.
"Baby, I'm sorry. I shouldn't have walked out
Alex turned his face into the touch, kissing his
lover's palm. "I shouldn't have given you reason
to leave. I know you'd never do anything to hurt
"Can we talk about it?" Fox asked hopefully. "I
mean really talk...without fighting or feeling
the need to be defensive."
"I love you, Alexei. I want you to be okay."
How to Throw a Curve Ball: Strike Zone by Courtney Gray
Mulder got up slowly and walked towards him.
Krycek gripped the back of the chair until his
fingers clawed the fabric, his heart pounding
faster with every step Mulder took. When they
were almost face to face, Mulder reached out and
Krycek felt himself pulled gently into Mulder's
He felt the coolness of Mulder's cheek rubbing
lightly against his jaw and heard himself sigh as
his arm burrowed inside Mulder's leather jacket
to circle his waist.
"Shelter in the storm," whispered Mulder close by
Not on My Watch 4: Remember Me by Aries
Fox looked down into the bottomless depths of his
lover's eyes, seeing everything he was,
everything he felt, right there...laid bare for
no one but him. He threaded the fingers of one
hand through Alex's hair, still holding the
exquisite, green gaze with his own. "Love you,"
he croaked while struggling to maintain his
composure. "S-so much..."
Snow Heart, Melt for Me by Ursula
Mulder thought that when their lips met; it was
with recognition as if Alex was the other half of
his soul that he had lost. He found magic and
wonder, but he knew that this was in its way a
humble mystery. This love was a thing not just
given to the beautiful and seldom to the overly
wise, but that was all right, Mulder realized,
because he was very willing to take a blithe step
into space, a fool in love with a mage.
Two of a Kind by Imp
Embracing, with arms and thought. ::I thought
you left me.::
::I thought you were gone. I'm sorry I scared
::It's all right. Everything's all right. Just
don't let go.::
::I'll never let go.:: and a kiss so deeply
passionate it wipes away everything but the love.
Distantly, Alex notices that he is no longer
cold: and the merry sound of mind-laughter
reaches him as Mulder kisses him again.
