Recs and Reviews

Mulder forced to take a vacation, let's the Gunmen pick where, ends up on a cruise ship, and is determined not to enjoy himself. That is how this story starts out. On the ship who also should be there, but lovely Alex. The boys fight, they have sex, decide to spend more time together, and start a relationship. Minor angst, but you know they are going to end up together. Fun in the Sun is more of an PWP interlude than a sequel. A flashback to a port stop while on the ship, where they pursue some extra curricular activities on the beach. Hmmm....wonder what that activity is. Nothing to painful here and it leaves you wondering what will happen next. I really enjoyed it and have reread it when I was in the mood for something not to violent that ended well. This is one of those lighter fics that is just so refreshing after you have spent so much time wading through angst that you just need a pick me up. It is well written, like Ori would do any less and just leaves you feeling happy and like you need a cool shower to turn the heat down.[1]
