A Woman's Touch is a Scully/Original Female Character, Mulder/Scully X-Files story by Leyla Harrison originally posted to alt.tv.x-files.creative.

It is a very early, perhaps the earliest, example of Scully Slash.

It was nominated for a 1996 Spooky Award [1]

The Original Header

Disclaimers: The characters of Fox Mulder, Dana Scully and Walter Skinner do not belong to me, although I wish they did!!! I have used them without permission, but don't sue me; I don't have a dime. The character of Lisa Anderson/Washington is my creation, and is not based on anyone, so any similarities are unintentional.

WARNING!!!! This story is not what you are expecting!!! It will never make it onto the Mulder and Scully romance archive, although I wish there were an archive just for experimental stories like this one. And I will repeat: This is an experiment!!! I want to make that clear because I don't want to make anyone mad or upset by the content of this story.

I didn't think I could write a story like this, but I think I have briefly overdosed on Mulder and Scully romance stories. If you could see what is on my hard drive...you would be amazed that I have covered the topic of Mulder and Scully in love in more ways than even I thought possible!!!

Anyhow, this story is going to be a romance, sort of. It does contain lesbian sexual content, which may or may not be rated NC-17 (yet to be decided at this point in the writing), so this will bother or upset you, STOP READING NOW!!! If you are willing to look at this as an experiment, as I am, and are willing to read it, I would appreciate it very much.

If you are able to put aside your own personal beliefs and judgements about this topic, please read on. Although Scully does have a lesbian encounter in this story, her romantic and sexual feelings about Mulder are also dealt with to some degree. Don't get me wrong: I am a die-hard relationshipper,[2] but I had to write this story. The rolling car down the embankement scene was part of a dream I had the other night, and the rest just came flowing forth from the creative mind that I call hell sometimes.

So...I hope you get something out of this story...God knows, I don't think I did, but I wrote it anyway!!!


  2. ^ While "relationshipper" sounds like a generic term for pairing now, it specifically meant MSR in 1995, and is, in fact, the word from which Shipping sprung.
