Reactions and Reviews
jen: Alternate Universe fics aren't for everyone, but if you have an open mind, this one was a fun read. I'd never read a romance novel before, so when I started this fic I was immediately (and obsessively) drawn in.
Micki: "Captive Fox"...:::sigh::: What am I going to do without this story now that it's complete? This fic, while certainly not what I usually read, has had me fascinated from day one. Why? Because once upon a time, I read historical romance novels. You know the ones, the ones where the heroine is all spunky yet demure, delicate yet strong, exquisitely feminine and just waiting to tame some virulent, hardheaded yet soft-hearted hunk of a man with the power of her love. They are classic, these stories, and so based on formula that you know how it will end (blissfully happy) long before it actually does. There is something comforting in that. <g>
Now take this classic genre and completely turn it on its ear by giving the women the "male" roles and the men the female ones. (Boggles the mind, don't it? <g>) Then take it one step further by injecting Mulder, Scully and the rest of TXF gang into the mix. And remain completely true to the historical romance novel formula. And what you have is one of the most fascinating studies of the historical romance genre that I have ever seen, and right here in the XF universe, such as it were. I have rarely had SO much fun reading a fic!Jeni claims that if you've never read one of those novels (she hasn't) you can still enjoy it; hey, I've read them, so I can't judge. But I'm telling you, if you've ever read Jude Deveraux, Julie Garwood or Judith McNaught, I'm tellin' you right now -- you NEED to read this story. You're gonna love it! <g>
