The Sound of Windchimes is a very early het Mulder/Scully X-Files story written by Sarah Stegall. It is considered by many fans to be a classic and the story won a 1995 Spooky Award. The story is listed on Classics (or, Your Fanfic Education is Not Complete Until You've Read ...).

The fic contains the trope Aliens Made Them Do It, which led to much discussion about non-con. Many fans remember the story for this element, as well as the "sex on a UFO" and relentless hamburgers.

The fic was written in 1993 and was released to the net in what the author considered a rough draft via a "misunderstanding" at some unknown date between 1993-1994. The revised story was posted by the author to alt.tv.x-files.creative on September 7, 1994.
