"Mulder and Scully are snowed in on a highway, but are rescued by a young woman with psychic powers. And as it turns out, Mulder's encounter with her may be more than a coincidence; perhaps it's all in the stars..."
[cue Twilight Zone theme] E.B.E. aired in February '94, and Generation X began it's lengthy birth pangs the following day. Kellie and I had been talking about doing an X-Files story and wound up pounding out the basic outline during one of our rare interstate phone calls. After running up an incredibly large phone bill we each went off to our respective computers and began to write.
At the time my daughter was almost 3 months old and we were in the process of buying a house. :-) Any of you who've gone through that probably know what's coming. :-) Here's Kellie, writing tirelessly and I'm getting *maybe* a sentence here and a sentence there and not getting to write at *all* for days and days and days. *sigh* Then, one day Sarah mentioned that she was working on a story called Windchimes. Having so little time at *all*, I haven't read more than maybe *2* stories from .creative, but I got a frantic message from Kellie telling me that Sarah's story was eerily similar to ours!Looks like another case of GMTA . Anyway, here's Generation X for your reading pleasure. I apologize that it's been so long in the making and I promise never to start a story when I'm trying to take care of a 2 month old, buy a house and start back to work. :-);-);-);-)
Reactions and Reviews
Here's one of the earliest X-Files fanfic stories, set and written in season one. This story does read differently at times because it's set so early in the series, but it's a real treat for its look at Mulder, Scully, their working & personal dynamics, and their outlooks on aliens and abduction, especially given what happens to them in the later seasons. All that plus it's a very interesting story with plotty twists and an original character with a psychic ability that's important to the tale in many ways. 
- "GMTA" is "great minds think alike"
